Then there was General Clarence Huebner, General Walter Lauer, General Donald Stroh, General Paul Baade and General Bertram Hoffmeister — all from German emigrant families, leading the pulverisation of Hitler’s regime.

Totally awesome!

It is certainly true that the awesome German Jews who left Germany were in many respects responsible for the creation of the atom bomb.

That would mean Hitler had the left over Germans, some of whom had been killed in WW1. That left him fewer leftover Germans to fight WW2.

I read that the Wisconsin National Guard was mobilized fought in World War I, and they were German speaking troops. The U.S. Army had German speaking soldiers in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and in World War I.

And German Jews like Einstein helped things along, too!

My great-great-great-grandfather Gottlieb S. left Germany for New Haven, Connecticut. I thank him for his wise venture to the New World.

I remember that Churchill had a military advisor who he described as a hard headed Ulsterman. Churchill often disagreed with him but still valued his advice.

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.

More Germans have migrated to the USA than from any other European country.
(I was surprised to learn that too)

In later years...Norman Schwartzkopf. Germans are genetically warriors although Merkel temporarily has their walnuts in her purse.

My favorite historical topic is the Second World War. The permutations and probabilities of this horrific and titanic, never before or since eclipsed struggle beggar belief, and are both endlessly fascinating and horrifying.

Hitler’s had a near schizophrenic image of America: America and Amerika. Hitler would maniacally denounce the United States as feeble, decadent nation while simultaneously referring to it as an industrial colossus worthy of imitation. Or he would belittle America in the vilest terms while at the same time looking at the latest photos from the United States, watching American films, and amusing himself with Mickey Mouse cartoons.

America was a place that Hitler admired—for the can-do spirit of the American people, which he attributed to their Nordic blood—and envied—for its enormous territorial size, abundant resources, and political power. He saw that the largest single ethnic group in the US was people of Germanic descent, and in his Aryan addled Darwinistic viewpoint, that very Germanic blood was comprised of the very best ethnic stock, German “pioneers” who were adventurous and daring enough to leave their country and forge a new destiny in a foreign nation that did not have a Bismarckian welfare state. I think that he saw this reality as an added threat from the US for his visions of world hegemony, even as he sought ways to harness this genetic/ethnic Volksdeutche resource toward German victory.

Given the proliferation of German descended command leadership (Nimitz, Eisenhower, King, Spaatz, Eaker, Arnold, Eichelburger, and the lists of awardees of the Medal of Honor of German descent), his fears were largely realized. .

Amerika, however, was to Hitler a mongrel nation, grown too rich too soon and governed by a capitalist elite with strong ties to the Jews, and infected with a mongrelized culture.

A nation with an international and mercantile trading foundation must be able to project power in order to protect those interests. We are not going to renounce international trade routes and commerce for isolationism.

One more thing, the western allies only had to face about 20% of the German Army in the West. I shudder to think what the casualty lists would have looked like if the US had to face just 50% of it. My father fought on the Gothic Line in Italy. Witness the slaughter of US troops at Kasserine, Salerno, the Rapido River, Anzio and Cisterna, the Gustav line, Omaha Beach, the Normandy hedgerows, the Huertgen Forest, the massacre of heavy bomber crews in the fight for air supremacy over the Reich, and the 1944 Ardennes offensive.

I do not think that I would be alive were it not for the Eastern front, where almost 80% of the German Army was engaged with the Soviets.

Kind of like when after we beat the Russians to the moon, Von Braun was asked how we beat them to the moon when they were ahead of us to start with, Von Braun said, “Our Germans were better than their Germans.”

“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.

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?

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.

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.

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

Going back to 16 and 1700’s.
