REAL History.

Arthur Quarmby, Mill Moor Road, Meltham. Yorkshire Post.
GERALD Hodgson credits the EU with creating peace in Europe. That is one way of looking at things, but there is an alternative point of view; that Germany has realised that its German Empire might more readily be achieved by peaceful means.
In 1870 the newly-united German States attacked and defeated France and announced the German Empire of Europe from the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles. That did not last and this led to both WW1 and WW2.
On each occasion, Germany was seeking control of the whole of Europe. Now that Germany has got its European Empire it no longer needs to go to war; not until its expands into the Urals (its stated intention) which will lead to war with Russia.
