  • 21:02 *It was reliably reported at the time [1944] that Herman and Adolf held frequent 'farting' competitions and fell out when Herr Göring released an awesome blast that actually broke Herr Hitler's recently installed WC at Berchtesgaden, he was NEVER forgiven after this incident and Hitler lost his record [being on Cabbage & Sauerkraut] of the best Farter in Deutschland & Österreich. He was a broken man after this incident and rarely spoke to Göring again, and was often overheard repeating Ich bin der beste Farter im ganzen Dritten Reich.*

  • American historians are harsh re Market Garden results, merely because Montgomery was a goof and not as good as Patton. In war, land costs blood, and the Allies got a lot of land; later capture of Antwerp hinged off of Market Garden. Hi from Canada

  • The eternal enemy of freedom , is Communism and Marxism. Yes , the same enemy Germany was warring against. The same Globalist interests that have infiltrated the West today. The Globalists take over all aspects of a free nation in order to control not just resources , but also the minds of the people. The world owes Germany an apology. Please view "Europa the last battle".

  • Regardless of who did more it's important to give every allied country credit for their sacrifices during world war 2, nowadays so many people bitch about how "oh america saved everyone" or "no, the Soviets were the best" at the end of the day...who cares? What matters is that we won and that we took down one if the worlds greatest evils and stopped its spread. Less we forget ❤

  • My Dad was a crew chief for a P-51 Mustang and in Charleroi, Belgium during the Bulge. Charleroi is about 70 miles from Bastogne and on the way to Antwerp. They were given extra ammunition to defend the area for the anticipated German advance. Around Christmas, they could see tremendous red lights in the sky and the next night a little further away. They were told Patton had arrived.

  • Samuel Fuller the movie director was in The Big Red One Division that fought in the battle of Aachen. In his book The Big Red One he describes a firefight in the local movie theater, in Aachen. The soldiers were fighting in the dark while the movie was still playing. Pretty weird!

  • Just a point of vocabulary: while all members of the Wehrmacht fought for the Nazi regime not all of them were members of the Nazi party. This subtlety is often lost in modern descriptions of the war but was critical in post-war prosecution of war criminals based on their level of responsibility. Calling all German soldiers of WWII 'Nazis' is incorrect.

  • If you want to test whether someone is truly American don't ask them about geography. Especially if you are the one who is poor at it. (I bet less than 20% of Americans would have even answered correctly to the question about the capital of Illinois, and maybe even be able to correctly point out Illinois on a map)

  • Did I see "Greater Germany" on the map of France in this series? If so, that is not quite accurate. As far as I am aware France was never fully annexed administratively during the war (although that may have been the long-term plan). Here a good map (with the NSDAP regional subdivisions) of the actual Großdeutschland during WWII: Here are details on the German military administration in occupied France
