Apropos of nothing in particular today, Julian Lindley–French sums up the situation in Europe.
Germany is dominant (by default – no master plan), France subordinated, Britain isolated and puppet governments installed in both Greece and here in Italy. For a historian it all has a very familiar ring to it.
It’s not really June, 1940 again as the author notes. But the parallels are striking. I hope this time around it isn’t all quite so fussy.
