Something else interesting said in the European 'parliament'.

By now - presumably - we have all had the pleasure of seeing Dan Hannan eviscerating Brown, so here's a fresh outbreak of Brussels-related newsworthiness:

"Jean-Marie Le Pen again claimed in the European Parliament that it was “evident” that the gas chambers were a “detail” in WW2".

One might think that there were more important things to be discussed than establishing a hierarchy of the historical importance of the events of the war. However, one might note that the Normandy landings and the liberation of Paris are pretty peripheral to the Russian view of the war.

Although I know that Mr C casts a regular glance across the StrangeMaps site, other denizens of this parish will enjoy the entire history of WW2 captured as a battle of maps:

Selecting the major events and the "details" is an exercise best left to the reader (unless you are a mad Frenchman).
