US already had war plans to invade the rest of the world



In 1870 Napoleon III declared war on Prussia. But he had no plan.
Bismark on the other hand was expecting war, so he had plans drawn up in 1866 just to be ready.

By 1871 Bismarck and Prussia had won the war.

So it helps to plan ahead.

But it also led everyone to think that the war in 1914 was going to be short.

Sometimes plans do not work out.

I can't speak to what his private diary might have indicated.

What I can say, it that planning for US rearmement, at FDRs direction started as early as 1938, with action being taken the following year.

I find the political history to be as fascinating as the actual combat.


Totally agree, nothing much more I can add to your post other than give it a star.
