Wire of Death

Gott in Himmel but them Bosch sure were hard on the Belgians.  And electric fence that killed THOUSANDS of people separated the conquered country from the Netherlands.

Them Germans sure were tone deaf in the Great War.  The shabby way they treated the Belgians, first for invading the neutral country, and then for treating them like crap was a big reason the US had their sympathies aligned a bit against Kaiser even before the Lusitania and the Zimmerman (JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON) Letter.  But this hundred plus mile long 2000 volt killer actually got the Dutch to warm up to the British.  Which was hard to do because the Dutch were miffed about the Boer War and the shabby treatment John Bull handed out down there, inventing the concentration camp and all for that dust up.

I did not know about this.

I did not know this either. Yet another example of the truth of the famous saying of that old anti-Semite, Henry Ford, "History books are bunk."
