Североафриканская кампания во второй мировой войне и роль в ней фельдмаршала Эрвина...
Контрнаступление англичан вошло в историю под названием операция "Бревити". Сначала англичанам сопутствовал успех и все три главных цели наступления были достигнуты. Однако Роммель подтянул свои силы и через десять дней отбил у англичан потерянные пункты. В середине июня Черчиль (Churchill) приказал провести новое наступление с целью снять осаду с Тобрука. Силы англичан в Египте получили значительные подкрепления - множество танков и истребителей. Операция "Баттлэкс" началась 15 июня 1941 года. Уовелл попытался обойти немецкие позиции у Хальфайя и ударить в тыл противнику. Англичане продвигались вперед только три дня. У Хальфайя наступление генерала Уовелла захлебнулось. Немцы с большим успехом применили против английских танков установленные прямой наводкой 88-мм зенитные орудия. 16 июня Роммель приказал начать контрнаступление. Англичане были остановлены, а затем повернули назад. 17 июня немцы выбили англичан обратно в Египет и сняли осаду с Хальфайя. Во время операции "Баттлэкс" англичане потеряли 91 танк, в то время как потери немцев составили всего 12 танков. 21 июня генерал Уовелл был снят со своей должности и на его место назначили генерала Окинлека (Auchi leck).

Perhaps the highest of these was the state funeral held at St Paul' s Cathedral after his body had lain in state for three days in Westminster Hall, a signal honour only rarely granted to anybody but a monarch or consort. The funeral also saw one of the largest assemblages of statesmen in the world. Throughout his life, Churchill also accumulated other honours and awards. He was awarded 37 other orders and medals between 1885 and 1963. Of the orders, decorations and medals Churchill received, 20 were awarded by Great Britain, three by France, two each by Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg and Spain, and one each by Egypt, Libya, Nepal, the Netherlands, Norway, and the United States. Ten were awarded for active service as an Army officer in Cuba, India, Egypt, South Africa, Great Britain, France, and Belgium. The greater number of awards were given in recognition of his service as a minister of the British government. Sir Winston Churchill received numerous honours and awards throughout his career as a statesman and author. High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles!
|Churchill, Hitler and the Unnecessary War Книга по Требованию Frederic P. M. |
The dust jacket summary asks, "Were World Wars I and II — which can now be seen as a thirty-year paroxysm of slaughter and destruction — inevitable? Were they necessary wars? Were the bloodiest and most devastating conflicts ever suffered by mankind fated by forces beyond men’s control? Or were they products of calamitous failures of judgment? In this monumental and provocative history, Patrick Buchanan makes the case that, if not for the blunders of British statesmen — Winston Churchill first among them — the horrors of two world wars and the Holocaust might have been avoided and the British Empire might never have collapsed into ruins. Half a century of murderous oppression of scores of millions under the iron boot of Communist tyranny might never have happened, and Europe’s central role in world affairs might have been sustained for many generations. Churchill, Hitler and the Unnecessary War: The book was released in May 2008. High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World, is a book by Pat Buchanan.

|The Definitive Wit of Winston Churchill Daedalus Books Langworth R. |
Gloriously comprehensive, The Definitive Wit of Winston Churchill includes all Churchill' s most famous quips and witticisms, and even an appendix of quotes falsely attributed to Churchill. The only book of its kind to be sanctioned by the Churchill estate and to track down each quotation to its source, it captures the great statesman at his most eloquent, witty, and engaging and makes a great gift for the holidays and special occasions year-round. His much-celebrated sense of fun and mischief has led to many of his jokes and ripostes becoming almost as well known as his famous wartime speeches. Charismatic, erudite, and often controversial, Winston Churchill was one of the most inspiring leaders of the twentieth century, and one of its greatest wits.
