You are using a line from Mein Kampf as your 'evidence' that Germany wanted to attack the west in 1939. It's just patently absurd. So Hitler wanted to postpone the attack on Poland to attack France, as proved by Mein Kampf. Really, your 'arguments' are just absurd. Now, to 'The Forced War' - I started reading at "Lord Halifax's Double Game" - check this ... Hugh Wilson, U.S. ambassador to Germany, in 1938.... "an English-German understanding is Hitler's first principle of diplomacy in 1938, just as it was in 1934, or in 1924 when he wrote Mein Kampf" Here is a line from Hoggan you might like ... Hitler - "It is my unalterable decision to smash Czechosolvakia by military action in the near future"
