  • French 75 Cocktail image

    Wednesday 03/09/14

    75 years ago today Britain and France issued ultimatums asking Hitler to get out of Poland. Hedidn't, so they declared war. (The US would not join the conflict until Hitler declared war after Pearl Harbor.)

    Not that the declaration did much good. Hitler had been building up armies and weapons for years; Britain and France had tiny, ill-equipped forces in comparison. In 1940 it would take the Wehrmacht less than six weeks to conquer France and kick the British army off the Continent.

    We are marking today with a French 75, created during the previous global conflict, World War I.
