Who's Grace?  There will be no concession from the "Ministry of War Oxford 
Group" group even if I'm it.  After reading "The Rise and Fall of the Third 
Reich" I now know that Hitler made his first aggressive moves towards 
Austria in 1936.  It's entirely possible that the British started moving 
towards a war economy in that year and that TA's were only made with the 
permission of the Ministry of War.

As the character played by Henry Fonda in "Sometimes a Great Notion" by Ken
Kesey said, "Never give a inch." (sic)
