As for the part about Clandestine, think of it as a comment about Neville Chamberlain...
Without Neville, the toll of WWII might have been far lower. Instead the situation went to the point where soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines of many nations placed their lives into the grinder, did their duty and returned the world to a semblance of sanity....all because Neville and his like failed to deal with reality..

Please tell me you were being ironic. Chamberlain was dealing with reality. The Conservatives were far more concerned with Soviet Russia than Nazi Germany, and saw Germany as a "bulwark against communism" to quote Boyce. And who knows, if Chamberlain had stood up to the march into the Rhineland, then maybe Hitler would have fallen and a competent Nazi would have taken over and then, I believe the expression you Americans like to use " We'd be speaking German right now". Finally, 3rd September 1939, Britain and France deliver ultimatums to Hitler. Pray tell me, when was the US' ultimatum delivered?
