no doubt in my mind
well, France anyway
True dat. We'd be living in a world with three superpowers right now.
thank god for the brits holding out
"youre telling me..."
he had a good run
Germany could have beaten Russia if they had set Moscow as their sole objective. Treating the conquered locals properly would have placed immense human capital at their disposal.
They lost the war in 1941.
But don't get me started....
where would he have have gotten the oil?
russia used the only things at its disposal at the time (1941), manpower and a huge country. they ceded land while drawing the nazis deeper into russia as fall/winter approached and bought time...
ya, russia was a logistical nightmare for hitler.
i used to have a german woman clean our offices & she was a young girl back in post war germany. she told me that when the russians were in town, they raped & pillaged & everyone feared & hated those assholes. she said that when the american boys got there it was fucking awesome & those guys would do all they could to help the local families & communities.
and fought like cornered rats
they were so close to conquering russia,but my point is they should have stayed allies.together they had all of europe,part of africa,once they got the uk together with japan would have overwelmed america eventually
germany and russia had a plenty of oil..at the time
actually thats one of the reasons hitler attacked.russia had oil fields
I think you are forgetting about the atomic bombs that the US developed. All of that still would have happened and Germany was not even close to developing theirs.
because Hitler kicked the "Jew scientists" out
occupied romania had the ploesti oil fields...US-1 axis-0
