Hitler was a hero who united the German people in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Poland. Over 90% of Austria peacefully voted to become part of the national Socialists. Hitler was such a powerful leader it took the Soviets, England, Canada, and the US all to defeat him, a landmass hundreds of times larger than Hitler's empire, and it STILL took the world four years to defeat Hitler! Haha.
Stalin on the other hand owes his power to bloody bolsheviks who murdered the entire Tsar family, including the woman and children. The US permanently has a scar on their reputation for siding with bloody communists just to defeat a man who only wanted a fair representation for his German race.
Watch "The Greatest Story Never Told, Adolf Hitler" on youtube (i would link it but on a mobile).edit on 18-9-2012 by filosophia because: (no reason given)
The Sub Sea Research, a company based in the northeastern US state of Maine, found the British ship SS Port Nicholson on the ocean floor around 30 miles off Provincetown, Massachusetts, the Boston Globe reported.
Greg Brooks of Sub Sea Research claims a US Treasury Department ledger shows platinum bars were on board, as part of a payment from the Soviet Union to the US for war supplies.
He also says he has video footage showing the platinum bars, although none of the bounty has been raised to the surface yet.
"I'm going to get it, one way or another, even if I have to lift the ship out of the water," he said.
"There's a good possibility there are about 10 tons of gold down there, too, and maybe some industrial diamonds," he added.

I have not met either of those gentleman so I can not make a properly informed opinion.
But I am probably going to hell, so I will let you know if I see them there.
In the preface to the 40th anniversary edition of The Great Terror, Conquest states:
"Exact numbers may never be known with complete certainty, but the total of deaths caused by the whole range of Soviet regime's terrors can hardly be lower than some thirteen to fifteen million."
