NotesField-Marshal Goring's speech. A speech was made on Sept. 9 at a Berlin armaments factory by Field-Marshal Goring which included the following: "The Polish Army will never emerge again from the German embrace. We can hope that within fourteen days of beginning the chief things will be achieved, and in a few weeks more the last work of cleaning up will be finished. We estimate that the whole campaign to the last clearing up will not last more than four weeks. ... If the Poles are now defeated then the threats to Germany on two fronts cease. That was always a serious danger for us. Owing to the inspired conduct of the Fuhrer, by the conclusion of the Russian Pact, that danger is passed. ..." Addressing himself to Mr Chamberlain, Field-Marshal Goring said: "You cannot doubt the will for peace of the German people. It is great and deep and the peace-will of the Fuhrer is very deep. We wish for peace and are ready for peace. ... " [Keesing's Contemporary Archives p.3720]
