We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.
Terje Langoy wrote:"Zum ersten Mal in der Seekriegsgeschichte ist es deutsches Schlachtschiffen gelungen, in den freien Atlantik einzudringen ... Und nun ran!"
"For the first time in Naval History, German battleships have succeesfully entered into the free Atlantic … Full speed ahead!"
Admiral Günther Lütjens - 4th February 1941 (Operation Berlin)
(I suspect some of our German members might find my translation a bit off. At least the main context of Lütjens message should be represented here)
