Chapter 1: Manufacturing Hate
Psychological warfare and the covert manipulation of public opinion in Britain, to support the British Air Ministry's official wartime policy of bombing civilian targets in Germany.
Chapter 2: Betrayal of Singapore
How Britain's “impregnable fortress” in the Far East was secretly abandoned by Churchill and his central war planners. The pattern of betrayal started by allowing Japan to attack Pearl Harbor.

istory will be kind to me," predicted Britain's leader Winston Churchill,"because I intend to write it." And so it was. Churchill's The Second World War, set the agenda for subsequent Western military historians who made it their mission to perpetuate some of Churchill's myths about the worst war in human history, especially the myth that the Axis powers — Germany, Italy and Japan — were the sole perpetrators of war crimes. As a result, two different histories existed side by side: a conspiratorial, secret history, buried and forgotten, which nobody was supposed to get wind of, and an officially endorsed public chronicle based on lies and deception, which proved easily exploitable in the politics of remembrance and forgetting.

Equally, nearly all the major military operations of World War II were shrouded in such extreme secrecy that most servicemen on the Allied side had very little idea of how the many individual actions and campaigns in which they were engaged fitted into the overall strategic pattern. Few of those who did the actual fighting and dying had much idea of what they were strategically involved in beyond fighting Hitler and Nazis. Others knew exactly what they were doing, but kept quiet because their revelations would seem so incredibly outrageous that nobody would believe them anyway. The Official Secrets Act also ensured that lips would remain tightly sealed even long after the war ended. Above all, "patriotism" and a perceived need to protect "the national interest" combined with censorship to retain a wall of silence around many major wartime operations.

Stan Winer, in his book Between the Lies, has exhumed a large body of evidence that somehow managed to escape the censors and the incinerators. The full text of the book, in two Parts, is available online at this site as a free download.

The Western Allies' belated opening of a second front in Europe was marked by seemingly “inexplicable” military and intelligence failures, aimed secretly at subverting the USSR.
Chapter 7: Atomic Blackmail
