The “unconquerable” Napoleon Failed to cross the Channel. But the obsessed Hitler bragged That he would subdue the British Isles. “I’m greater than Napoleon! I will capture Albion!” The corporal threatened for two years, But everything turned out backward: The Allied Fleet has crossed by force The foamy waters of the Channel. It’s the end of the corporal, kaput! He’s caught in pincers everywhere! He’s beaten everywhere, and everywhere is hell for him! Cherbourg is liberated, Vitebsk taken!
