What's the difference. Colombia or Argentina ? If you read Hitler you'll realize he's not that much of a great Fuehrer at all and if you look closely
his own policies did not make any sense. He should not be revered as a politician or strongman under any circumstances, if not for his crimes, at
least for the blindness and outright stupidity of his actions.
He comes out saying he wants to unite Europe, and that Germany has not been treated fairly.
- Obviously at that time, nobody in Europe wanted to be in a united Europe because they want to be allies of the British and enemies of Germany.
- what's the logic of his alliance with the arch arch pro-british and permanent failed state of Italy?
Italy is the only British colony in the world that hasn't been colonized by the British. It's been created as such.
Colony by birth! Hitler's alliance with Italy made no sense.
- In the middle of all this he turns nazism into an anti-jew force. But the jews never played much of a role in humiliating or hurting Germany (before
the end of WW2) Makes no sense again.
- Since Hitler had a military force that is strong enough to unite Europe with a series of blitzkrieg operations, obviously the trick is to push west
with that military force to a very weak France and then continue to Spain and Portugal. Why go east ? Makes no sense. He could have taken control over
Europe in 1 year or less, almost without resistance. The French pussies had surrendered already in a few days in historical events.
So what did he need to ensure that he could properly operate to complete the European unification ?
He needed 3 things:
1) Keep the americans out of the war. The americans would know immediately that it was impossible to save France if Germany only pushed westwards
ignoring any war eastwards. The British also knew that, Hitler could take the whole continental Europe effortlessly, unless Germany was also embroiled
in a war against the Soviet Union at the same time.
2) The British and the Americans would not intervene in case the Germans went west, because they would only kill each other and give full global
dominance to the USSR if they did under those circumstances.
So what was the trick in this story?
3) The 2 magic words, Molotov-Ribbentrop. The agreement that fell from the sky like a sweet mana. What did Hitler and his idiotic staff do with it?
Well ... you can read that in history books ...
Great strongman my ass. More like a drunk who needs a compass and a map.
This obviously only applies to the period 1935-1942. After WW2 France became a nuclear power and a German attack against it, would result in the
complete destruction of Germany. So that hypothetical scenario is not repeatable outside of the period's context.
