Eighty years on. 29th January 1940


French Prime Minister Édouard Daladier made a radio address titled “The Nazis’ Aim is Slavery”. “For us, there is more to do than merely win the war,” Daladier said. “We shall win it, but we must also win a victory far greater than that of arms. In this world of masters and slaves, which those madmen who rule at Berlin are seeking to forge, we must also save liberty and human dignity.”

The Polish Government in Exile stated that the Nazis had killed 18,000 Poles.

A fire at Ajikawaguchi Station in Osaka, Japan killed almost 200 people.

The USSR suggested negotiations to the Finns via a diplomatic note to Sweden.

Game day 151. Japan

The Japanese launched another air strike on Chinese Infantry south-west of Peking.  This was carried out at the limit of the fighters’ range by returning to another location just inside Japanese-held Manchukuo.  Two squadrons were lost and no casualties inflicted on the Chinese.
