Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This from The Times:,,2-1783800,00.html

    Why are the French such bad losers? You'd think they'd have got used to it by now...
  2. Because they're French? There's no more to it.
  3. I don't see why they should be as they and their counterparts were absolutely smashed and destroyed by a British tactic they had never seen before! They were stuffed End of Story!
  4. I suppose that the Germans would still be reeling if you sent a message to Berlin....

    "Dear Mr Hitler,

    I appreciate that you have nothing more to loose than the war, but look at your surrender not as the opportunity to loose, but more as an opportunity to win! Your great country could gain all of the technological advances that we make, paid for by us (the Allied Victor) and make a feckin' mint out of our re-building programme.

    Please could you let our old and bold (and no doubt our old and bold's sons and grand-sons) bomb Dresden for one last time. It will be received by your countrymen as a great honour to the victory you had in taking over our beer, cars and electronics industry. Hell, I'd even buy a Mini now that BMW are involved.

    Could you ask your Jap mates to give us a look-in too....

    Many thanks

    P.S. Any good tips for invading France? I appreciate that you only did it the once personally, but hey, you nearly succeeded! ;)
