(The Battle Of Britain had begun)


With a goodly amount of censorship, correspondent Sigrid Schultz delivered news of the war from Berlin this day in 1940. The European continent was now under Axis control and the Battle of Britain was underway. Schultz was one of a handful of American correspondents still broadcasting out of Berlin and the amount of censorship was made clear by the amount of "quote-unquotes" she used during her broadcast. Scant acknowledgment was made of the resistance the British air force was putting up, by merely mentioning the French had more planes, but the British were better fliers. Mention was made that Britain was now in line for the full brunt of the German war machine. Further adding fuel to the speculation an invasion was anticipated almost any day.
