In the Second World War, every bond between man and man was to perish. Crimes were committed by the Germans under the Hitlerite domination to which they allowed themselves to be subjected which find no equal in scale and wickedness with any that have darkened the human record. The wholesale massacre by systematised processes of six or seven millions of men, women, and children in the German execution camps exceeds in horror the rough-and-ready butcheries of Genghis Khan, and in scale reduces them to pigmy proportions. Deliberate extermination of whole populations was contemplated and pursued by both Germany and Russia in the Eastern war. The hideous process of bombarding open cities from the air, once started by the Germans, was repaid twenty-fold by the ever-mounting power of the Allies and found its culmination in the use of the atomic bombs which obliterated Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

  2. Can someone tell me why in the hell did Germany have to pay such reparations and not Austria-Hungary because they were the ones who started the whole thing not Germany!!!

  3. So glad part 2 came out rewatching the first part to jog my memory, but if it’s as good as part 1 it’s gonna be amazing!

  4. The worst massmurder on a scale that we've never seen…what about the 20 million deads under Stalin?

  5. German Generals wanted all 3 army groups to take Moscow first.. Hitler split them into 3 separate objectives thus helping the Soviets

  6. No, the Poles had faith in their strength having defeated the Red Army in 1920. They were pressured by the French not to antagonize German by mobilizing. They complied. Also, remember that 1/3 of the Polish state budget went to the military.

  7. Can you do a video on British colonialism in Ireland right through to the troubles and the good Friday agreement?

  8. western power also failed to address the racist attitude towards Asia and Africa. The failure to adddress that issue pushed the Hapan military to be more nationalist and the Chinese to l ook to the communist.

  9. Your analysis is all very well but it compares nothing to Soviet Union mass genocide under Communist Dictator Joseph Starlin!!

  10. They experimented on the whites and now its a mess that really no-one wants to fight for nuclear party

  11. Its funny how people, media, govrns.
    Call Hitler a dictator!!!
    What about the +35m who got killed in India by English taking the Silk Road?
    What about over 5M arabs died defending their land against french&english army?
    What about the millions of Native American who got killed and lost their land and forced to go to schools and get killed and buried
    underneath the schools ?
    Who nuked japan and destroyed 2 cities?
    Am not saying Hitler isnt a dictator
    Hes a criminal!
    But why hes the only one people talk about ?
    the Church and the Allies did bigger crimes !!!

  12. WW2 was an extension of WW1 after a pause. In a way you can think of them as one world war, on a grand and long scale.

  13. That means the Germans would have had to kill a 160 million Russians alone to be in the same park as the Mongols.

    The Germans compare to the Mongols? When the Mongols first attacked the West . It is thought ( and yes its thought that they killed this many because they are not positive because there weren't enough people left alive to even get an accurate count) but in what is now Russian area, it is thought the population went from 2 million to 200,000 thousand people.
    The Germans were bad yes but when it comes to history be very accurate. For the Germans to be in the same league as the Mongols they would have to kill 90% of the population. There was a census done in Russia around 1937 and i am sure its not exact but it does give us an idea, but the Russians had a population of around 162 million people. That means the Germans would have had to kill a 160 million Russians alone to be in the same park as the Mongols

  14. This is what hour granfather fod for to keep tham out of american now we have tham in our back yard what happen to american

  15. Winston Churchill was also a coloniser. Let's not forget the atrocities committed by the English on their colonies.

  16. The worthless motorcycle numerically disappear because factory periodically charge beneath a permissible bracket. lacking, finicky forecast
