Lightbulb Star in the West

Born 1 September 1878 Chichester, England-Died 10 February 1966 (aged 87)..
On 20 April 1939 Fuller was an honoured guest at Adolf Hitler's 50th birthday parade and watched as "for three hours a completely mechanised and motorised army roared past the F├╝hrer." Afterwards Hitler asked, "I hope you were pleased with your children?" Fuller replied, "Your Excellency, they have grown up so quickly that I no longer recognise them... warfare is a shot through the brain, not a hacking to pieces of the enemy's body..Hail, O Hail!.The stars are pale..Hidden the moonlight in the vale..
