The old Italian first generation immigrants were fond of saying that “the donkeys remained in Italy”. Any poor person with brains and ambition migrated.

Geez you guys, what about the greatest German-American of WWII, the Fuhrer’s nephew, William Hitler? Joined the US Navy in 1944.

Family legend says that my great-grandfather came to America to avoid being conscripted into the Kaiser’s army, so der Führer might not have wanted us back.

One on my favorite WW2 storys was the first US fighter squadron ariving in the UK and meeting it RAF counterparts

The yanks decided to play a game on the brits so had all the Americans with German last names lineup 1st for introduction.

So they start the intro and German after German named American pilot is introduced

Final one of the Brit's exclaimed

“Bloody Hell! ..we got the bloody Luftwaffe!

Germany, as a nation, didn’t exist until after 1871.

I am of German descent. As a friend liked to say, “Our people were kicked out of Germany before the Prussians got to the Jews.” Many of the emigres had no love for the 2nd or 3rd reich. My Geandfather hated the Prussians, the Nazi’s, and the Swedes in that order

Of note: There is historical information in context in this book review that has not been captured and presented by any other author that I am aware of.

I’ve studied 20th Century War and Revolution quite a bit but was not aware of some of this.

Reviewing those old speeches from the archives has provided a much better picture of what happened then.

Serves him right that he got his ass kicked by a bunch of other Germans.

Commander of the 8th Air Force, General Carl Spaatz.

Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz.

America’s top shipbuilder in the war Henry Kaiser.

And about 1/4 of all Americans including my Oma (granny). Also including Donald Rumsfeld and Donald Trump.

Germans make great Americans - but lousy Germans.

German is still the most common ethnicity in the US.

Ah, shoot! I thought Hitler was pissed because Eisenhower was not a vegetarian.

Other than possibly Field Marshal Rommel, Hitler was left with the inferior Germans. :)

Really interesting article and comments.
In case anyone hasn't read the original Daily Mail piece, I think this bit is worth repeating:
"The theme of [this new book] 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.
This was completely congruent with Hitler’s paranoiac anti-Semitism, as he saw the Jews as the eternal string-pullers of international finance, dedicated to their own enrichment...
IOW Hitler saw himself as a Socialist.

Marx and Lenin suck so much that the best of Europe escaped before the royal families created a new class of rulers to keep the surfs in line. Tossing as God and their Devine right of kings... Communist and socialist stuffs became the new Pope on the block. At least Hitler was a decent Corporal.

Dwight Eisenhower, descended from the Eisenhauers . . . who left the Saarland for Pennsylvania.’ Then there was General Clarence Huebner, General Walter Lauer, General Donald Stroh, General Paul Baade and General Bertram Hoffmeister —

And Freidrick Trumpf.
