    wwII is a syptom of naked imperialism and over-aggressive expansion. if the axis won, imperialism won. Social darwinism will continue to previal over the philopsdophy that stronger countries havfe the right to attack and dominate weak contries for sake of expansionism. I wondered why the british empire was snot on the axis side.

    It may have been hitler was too much of a prick.

    I have been looking into Hitler's personal bodyguard/the very elite of the shock-troops. The Waffen SS Liebstandarte. Here's a YouTube video telling some of the history.

    I do find nazi Germany to be strangely fascinating in its genuine evilness.
    These guys makes me think of the Stormtroopers in Star Wars

    Movie recommendations, adding to the few already suggested: A Bridge to Far, Band of Brothers (both the combat rather than politics), Conspiracy, The Goebbels Experiment, Downfall, The Wannsee Conference (same topic as Conspiracy.

    Books: Mein Kampf, Rise and Fall of the Third Reich,The Nuremberg Interviews, Inside the Third Reich (even with the self serving claims of innocence, which gives insight to how an individual can absolve themselves of guilt during and after the events), Martin Bormann Nazi in Exile - any biography of the leaders of the Reich, I enjoy reading about all of them, but find The Brown Eminence especially interesting.

    And for a brief summary of Germany's problems leading up, and explaining Hitler's rise to power, this page seems to offer a quick guide:

    Weimar Germany 1919-1933

    The dream of change. Such a place might Hell be to thought and action.”

    Seriously, that made no sense at all.

    Ps, I think by common consensus the snot on the Axis side would probably have been Italy under Mussolini. Maybe we could also add Vichy France too.

    I've good reviews for Downfall. I even fully seen either film, but I'd add Das Boot and Cross of Iron to the list of movies recommendations.

    Thank your for posting those pictures Peguy. They are great!

    When the Cold War started it must have sucked for the soldiers who met up with the Russian's in Berlin. So much for being friendly!

    The Soviets actually made a film about the Elbe meeting. May have to check youtube to see if anybody has uploaded it.
