Napoleon once observed that “history is a fable which has been agreed upon.” The “official” history of the Nazi period is an absurd fable, which has nothing whatever to do with the truth. Nevertheless, that is what is taught to children in school. In my book, “The Myth of German Villainy,” I attempt to set the record straight by providing logical, rational explanations for each and every initiative taken by Hitler and the Nazis. Hitler was not a deranged psychopath. He was an intelligent, rational leader of a great country. He did not want war, had nothing to gain from it, and everything to lose. Germany’s interests would have been best served by the status quo. Hitler was in truth an ardent Anglophile, and wanted more than anything to have amicable relations between Germany and Great Britain. Contrary to popular myth, he did everything possible to avoid war with all of the Allied powers, including numerous peace offers, and only struck out when shoved into a corner with no other choice.
The Versailles Treaty at the end of WWI took vast areas of German territory and millions of German people and gave them to other countries as war booty. Hitler came to power largely on the promise of ending the Versailles Treaty and reclaiming lost German territory. His intention was to create a single, homogeneous German nation-state which would include all of Europe’s German people. Each and every one of Hitler’s initiatives before World War II began can be explained in this way. He had no plan for world conquest, or for that matter, even to dominate Europe. After Britain and France declared war on Germany following Germany’s (justified) invasion of Poland, each of Hitler’s initiatives were actually defensive in nature. He struck first when it was clear that the Allies intended to strike Germany. He simply beat them to the punch.
Hitler tried to make peace numerous times after the war began, but in vain. The Allies only wanted to destroy Germany and had no interest in making peace. The demand for “unconditional surrender,” coupled with the genocidal “Morganthau Plan,” and the relentless destruction of German cities by aerial bombardment, proved that.
The destruction of German cities by British and American bombers can only be compared to the Roman destruction of ancient Carthage. 160 of Germany’s largest cities and towns were reduced to rubble, and perhaps as many as 21 million Germans died as a result of the war. All of Europe was bankrupted by the war. Vast millions were starving. The cultural assets of Europe, including art, statuary, architectural structures, and infrastructure, accumulated over a thousand years, went up in smoke. Not just Germany, but Western Christian Civilization, was the loser in World War II.
The great tragedy of the war was that it was unnecessary and could easily have been avoided. But a tragedy equal to that was that Britain and the United States were on the wrong side in the war. By supporting the Communist Soviet Union against Western, Christian Germany, we undermined Western Civilization itself. The trajectory of Western Civilization has changed from one of unlimited possibilities to inexorable decline as the result of the war. Today, the European race is threatened with eventual extinction, as its birthrate is below the population maintenance level, and hoards of non-white, non-Christian immigrants from the third world are flooding into both America and Europe, polluting, diluting, factionalizing and Balkanizing our once homogeneous populations, to the point that the process is now irreversible. By waging war on our own Western Christian brethren, the Germans, we only facilitated the eventual demise of Western Civilization.
