Michael Ledeen Libel of the Day

Regarding my post on Michael Ledeen, James Knechtmann of General Staff Library writes:

    This story about Tandey and Hitler is contrived propaganda nonsense from World War II. The source is an article in the Coventry Sunday Graphic from December 1940 (see http://www.firstworldwar.com/features/tandey.htm), and apparently has no earlier provenance. Tandey was, more than likely, playing the glory hound one last time. Hitler would have been taken prisoner if he had been in the situation Tandey was relating.

    Also, Ledeen is an idiot for claiming that Tandey was in the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment at the time. He served in The Green Howards during WWI and didn’t transfer to the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment until 1921.
