As part of my ongoing effort to reflect on the past, I have looked up archives from the New York Times from 1939- 1941 here http://query.nytimes.com/search/sitesearch/#/*/from19391111to19411230/
Amusing claim… May 26, 1940 the French government claimed that Nazi air superiority had been overcome…. this was 1 day before the emergency evacuation at Dunkirk of the defeated Allied armies. Less than a month later the French would surrender.
Crazy the amount of poor quality information that comes about a topic the day of.
