If Hitler Invaded Hell...

"If Hitler Invaded Hell, I Would At Least Make A Favorable Reference To The Devil In The House Of Commons."

請問一下他的深意和背景

不是字面意思唷^^

謝謝!

Update:

羅莉小姐(?不確定不好意思)

謝謝您提供的背景

讓我了解好多

不過雖然我自己說不要字面意思

但還是發覺"I would at least make a favourable reference"這一部份我並不瞭解

可不可以再為我解惑?

謝謝

再,英國下議會裡邊有比較偏共產思想的人囉?那時候

^^

    這句話是邱吉爾在1941年6月德軍大舉進犯蘇聯時所說的一句名言. 邱吉爾是盡人皆知的反共人物, 本句的Hell就是指蘇聯, 地獄裡當然都是魔鬼, 而牠們的同路人在英國下議院(The House of Commons)與邱吉爾是死對頭, 但德軍入侵蘇聯, 深明大義的邱吉爾表態支持他的死對頭. 不久之後, 英軍果然大舉出兵援助蘇聯, 最後是德軍潰敗撤退.

    From Answers.com

    When Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, some MPs (Members of Parliament) teased Churchill, who had previously been very hostile to the Soviet Union and had played a key role in Western intervention against the Bolshevists in 1919-21. He replied with the above comment.

    When Hitler invaded the Soviet Union, Winston Churchill, a vehement anti-Communist, famously stated "If Hitler invaded Hell, I would at least make a favourable reference to the Devil in the House of Commons," regarding his policy toward Stalin. Soon, British supplies and tanks were flowing to help the Soviet Union.
