“The theme of Hitler: Only The World Was Enough is that the founder of the National Socialist Party — the clue is in the name — saw international capitalism as the main enemy of the German people and, indeed, of the world as a whole.”

The Nazis were inherently a Leftwing affair.

There are some strong suggestions from the FBI's Venona project that Robert Oppenheimer was a spy for the Soviets.

BTY, 80% of the Jewish migrants to the USA are the Akhenazi Jews, shown to have the highest IQ of any other people in the world. Ashkenazi Jews Rank Smartest In World

"Studies show descendants of Jews from Medieval Germany, throughout Europe have IQ 20% higher than global average"

“Von Braun said, “Our Germans were better than their Germans.”

LOL, I have never heard of that and I’m a fan of Von Braun.

I think Germans are still the largest ethnic group in America.

Apart from his responsibility for world war and the most heinous genocide in all history,

Sorry, but Hitler is a piker compared to several Muslim Caliphates, Turks, Mongolians, and Japanese. Also, we aren't including communists, are we?

There were several distinct waves of German immigration to North America (because you have to include Canada in this discussion, too). Many of the early German emigree’s were not really looking to join the military since that was, in part, why they emigrated.

The 11th Corps, Army of the Potomac, got the unfortunate nickname “The Flying Dutchman” after their lines were broken at Chancellorsville. But the big problem in the Civil War was the lack for professionalism among the officer corps. It’s almost always the case no matter the era that troops that are better led outperform others in combat, so no ethnic group has a corner on martial superiority.

I know Eisenhower was a career Army man but he had no combat experience. He was a good administrator but I wonder if he had an advisor.

After reading Rick Atkinson's trilogy about the US Army in WW2, about the only guy I came away with a heightened impression of was Eisenhower. There's nobody else who could have done the diplomatic dance of keeping the US and Britain cooperating effectively with each other, and dealing with all the prima donna generals in both armies. At the end of the war, Montgomery actually came to him and apologized for being such a pain in the ass.

The German commander whose name I can’t recall right now was asked who were the best allied generals. He replied Montgomery and Patton.

Patton was Scotch Irish (Born Fighting) and Montgomery while born in London was of Scottish descent. Robert E. Lee was actually descended from Pocahontas.

Hitler in the beginning had a positive view of FDR. He was astounded at how FDR accomplished an almost overnight transformation of the US govt in the first 100 days and that he ignored his opponents and the Costitition. He correctly saw that the New Deal was more Fascist than Bolshevik and that FDR was elevating the govt above all.

Ike spent some time working as an aide to Douglas MacArthur. Neither man liked the other much.

MacArthur once referred to Eisenhower as the best clerk he ever had. And Eisenhower said that for seven years he studied dramatics under MacArthur.

The Turks, Mongols & Muslims killed civilians the old fashioned way — the stacked the heads, and stacked them high. (Then the Muslims bitch because the Frankish Crusaders did the same to them when Jerusalem fell, but I digress). I think the horror with Hitler is that he was a throwback who harnessed modern industrial methods to the slaughter. Stalin did it too, but of course he was a necessary ally. By ‘47 we pretty much jettisoned Uncle Joe.

When I went to Great Britain in the mid 80’s it was pretty evident that anyone with any “get up and go” had gotten up and left years ago.

I’ve known about the Pennsylvania Dutch (actually German) and the Germans of the northern Plains and other parts of midwest, as well as St. Louis and Milwaukee, but I was amazed the first time I spent any amount of time in Texas, driving from Houston to San Antonio, all the German named towns.

Then in San Antonio was Schilo’s Delicatessen. We’d been to the Alamo (the basement was closed the day we went) which is surrounded by crap chain restaurants, and we asked some bicycle cops where to go. The recommended Schilo’s and it was great.

“he best of Germans had emigrated to the U.S.”

Going back to 16 and 1700’s.

A bunch of the greatest physicists in the world were Hungarian Jews from Budapest.
