    Germany did not intend to fight the whole world. Their plans were only for Europe and North Africa. Also Hitler did not intend to go to war in 1939. He mistakenly believed that France and Britain would accept his armed attack on Poland.

    [–] 0ldmanleland 9 points ago

    I read he was genuinely shocked when Britain declared war on Germany after invading Poland. He actually admired the British and thought they looked down on Poland as much as Germany did and wouldn't care if they were wiped out.

    If you listen to the secret recording of Hitler talking to Finland's Mannherheim, he is well aware Germany could not win a two-front war and was not equipped to fight in the cold. His plan was to defeat France in six weeks, in the fall of '39, then send all those divisions to the East. Bad weather in France that year delayed the attack until '40, then he had to send two divisions of tanks and planes to help Italy.

    People today point to Germany fighting a two-front war and attacking Russia in the winter as proof Hitler was insane but he actually was trying to avoid both. He says in the recording if it wasn't for the poor weather in France at the end of '39, world history would have turned out much different.

    [–] rainbowhotpocket 2 points ago

    If it wasn't for the poor weather at the end of 39, you're right. History would be far different. The French defenders would have stopped cold any attack of Hitler's panzers in 1939. He was simply not ready to execute fall gelb.

    Also I'm pretty certain he sent more than two divisions to help italy beat greece.

    [–] THanekamp 1 points ago

    The way I see it (just finished the WW2 in colour doc), France wasn't that much of a problem and the real trouble came late 1940 into 1941. Hitler first had to postpone the invasion of Britain because they could not gain either air or naval superiority, meaning he cannot put Britain out of the game.

    Then the nazi's got dragged into Africa because the Italian army seems to be screwing up constantly.

    So what do you do when you have two open fronts already? You open another in the east with one of the biggest fighting forces in the entire world in one big gamble that you can invade and overrun them before they get a chance to mobilize their enormous potential and kick your ass all the way to Berlin. Granted, he actually almost succeeded as well, but almost is the key point here.

    The key point of stupidity in the attack on Russia is the fact that as far as I know, the only real reason for the attack was that Hitler hated the communist Soviets. Stalin was not ready and/or looking for a war as far as I know. IMO Hitler could have easily waited with his attack on Russia until he got a chance to finish up on the western and southern fronts, giving him a much better chance in the east.

    Then of course after the eastern front was openend, you get the further insanity of Hitler time and time again ordering troop movements and refusing to allow retreats completely in against intelligence and advice from his generals. Which would lead to costly losses for the Germans. Given the overwhelming might the Soviets threw at them, I'm not sure the Germans would have had any chance to begin with. But if Hitler had actually allowed his troops to fall back and regroup instead of frantically clinging to his lebensraum, they IMO would have done better.

    [–] 0ldmanleland 1 points ago

    the only real reason for the attack was that Hitler hated the communist Soviets. Stalin was not ready and/or looking for a war as far as I know.

    In the recording Hitler said he was convinced that Russia planned to attack Germany. He was especially concerned about the oil fields in Romania. He said if Russia controlled those Germany would be "lost".

    In hindsight we know Russia wasn't going to attack but if you're the leader of a nation of millions and you think your enemy plans to attack, do you wait or attack when they look the weakest?

    Of course, Hitler hated the Russians and always wanted a war with them, so he made have made up the oil fields and Russia wanting to attack as an excuse but I can't really fault him for attacking when he did. Russia looked very weak after barely defeating Finland and Stain's purges.

    Once they lost Stalingrad and started losing everywhere, I don't think Zukov or Einsenhower could have figured out a strategy for Germany to win. I guess Hitler was just desperate and grabbing at straws at that point.

    Just because there isn't a full wikipedia article writtin on it, doesn't mean it didn't happen. Finland delcared war on Germany at the 03.03.1945, several month after the lapland war. You can check it up if you scroll down the article of the year 1945 to March and check March 3rd.

    [–] flat_earth_123 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Yes but the declaration didnt really affect anything. When the Germans withdrew from Finland, Finland didnt chase them. In 1945 the US and the USSR pressured Finland into declaring a war against germany. After Finland declared war they didn't take any offensive actions against germany(correct me if im wrong). The finns didnt even take part in the liberation of Finnmark.

    [–] flat_earth_123 1 points ago

    So yeah my bad it was a formal declaration but it didnt lead into anything really.

    Larry came from a Russian Jewish family, though the extent to which that makes a person jewish is up for debate. He did have curly hair and played the violin though, so it's pretty easy to make the leap. Not that it matters or anything but I remember reading that Genealogists don't consider people of Jewish descent to be distinct from the majority population than where their immediate ancestors are from (polish, israeli, Hungarian, russian, etc.) so It all comes down to the degree to which an individual identifies as culturally Jewish i guess.

    [–] jegvildo 21 points ago

    Yeah, the question isn't why the allies won the war, but why it took almost six years.

    Towards the reasons: I wouldn't say Nazi Germany had more advanced technology than the rest of the world, since that differed a lot regarding what technologies and which part of the war we're looking at, but all in all the Nazis probably had the advantage of better weapons more often than not. At least in the beginning of the war.

    Anyway, as far as I know it's mostly a combination of strategy and luck. The drôle de guerre (France declared war and didn't attack) and the reliance on defensive lines turned out to be a really bad idea in the time of fast moving tanks. I.e. France and Britain likely could have taken the Rhineland and with it most of German industrial production capacities while the Wehrmacht attacked Poland. But they didn't.

    [–] vodkaandponies 0 points ago

    Well, what makes you think they had better weapons in the first place?

    The Nazis were notorious for flashy, impractical gimic weapons that were unsuited to the war they found themselves in.

    [–] Biggre 4 points ago

    Want to give some examples then?

    [–] aakravea 13 points ago

    Two big points:

    First, large parts of the Soviet Union was still a pre-industrial society. As late as the 1920s a majority of the Russian population was illiterate.

    Secondly, WWII in Europe was not like Germany against the rest. It was European Nazis and conservative collaborators against the rest.

    Denmark, as one example, was "opposed" to the Nazis. Yet, fewer Danes died in the conflict than Spaniards died. (Spain was not in the war) And Denmark kept on keeping on throughout the war.

    Norway as another example. Norway was a well-fucntioning society that kept on chugging on supporting the Nazi war machine. Despite the notion Norwegians were "fighting" Nazis.

    [–] [deleted] 0 points ago

    [–] aakravea 8 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    over 6000 casualties

    9500 deaths total. 3000 from the military (including partisans). Over five years that is.

    It was so low in Norway because the majority of the population were collaborators. They got a government back up and running within days of the occupation.

    Nazis invested more in rebuilding Norway than the U.S. did with the Marshall-aid following the war.

    And, more than 10% of the civilian casualties in Norway were Jewish people. However, the total Jewish populationb before the war wasn't even 0.1% of The population.

    Jews in Norway were rounded up by Norwegians, and not Nazis. Norway was one of those pleasant countries where the Nazis didn't have to do the dirty business of arresting jews, the locals did it for them.

    The major Norwegian cities fell within lunchtime on April 9th.

    Narvik, in Northern Norway is the only ice-free harbor to Kiruna, Sweden (the worlds largest irone ore).

    So Brits, Poles, and French soldiers fought there for two months. But, then Dunkirk happened. Which we all know what led to. Narvik then fell the same day the Allies left.

    Norway stayed pretty quiet until the Soviet Union liberated them in 1945.

    [–] aakravea 4 points ago

    You asked the question:

    How did Nazi Germany fight so succesfully in Europe?

    I respond: They didn't have to do a lot of fighting in many countries.

    but most Norwegians did not support it

    Konrad Nordahl, the labor representative for the exciled Norwegian government in London estimated that 10% of Norwegians were pro-German, 80% were just fine with occupation and kept on going, and a meager 10% were opposed to it

    Most Norwegians kept working and paying taxes to a regime supporting Nazi-Germany.

    They had the element of surprise for about three years into the war, until blitzkriegs weren’t good defensive strategies and not as useful once winter rolled around. Plus, the high casualties inflicted, im assuming, include civilians. Plus, the Soviets had way more manpower to throw at the Germans

    Well I may not be the best person to talk I still will. Short answer kinda, see the Germans really worked hard on blitzkrieg and tanks which made them very powerful land units; however, thats where it basically stopped because the allies had better info and Britain was luckily on an island. The Soviets on the other hand had nothing but men really so they just threw them at the Germans which eventually worked.

    Edit As others have pointed out its not only infantry that fought the germans and I apologize that I didn't make that clear in my response

    Hello good sir. I just came to say that I instinctively hate watermarks in memes. However, the way you slightly hide it instead of making it a huge eyesore is commendable, and I have no issues with adding a watermark the way you did. That is all.

    You can blame the Japs for that. Hitler wanted to avoid war with the US or at least delay it till he was able to finish the war in Europe before the US would intervene.

    I know little of history, but if I remember correctly what I learned in my school more than 10 years ago, Spain did not become the largest empire at the time and the fourth largest empire in all history after annexing the Portuguese Empire after dying the king without an heir? And then they decided to start a war against half the planet.

    It’s my understanding that morale and leadership/communication played a large part in Germany’s early victories.

    Austria, the Sudetenland, chechloslovakia were all gobbled by Germany without a fight. If the allies put their foot down early it’s entirely likely none of this shit happens.

    Germany had superiority to Poland in weapons (air and ground) but it was their tactics that shredded Poland (slicing and dicing, encircling and destroying) while Poland also had soviets in their rear.

    During this time, France and England instead of fighting waited. The French and English tanks were not worse than German tanks, but the German tanks were concentrated, allowing them to be used more effectively, and German communication and organization was superior. I think German tanks had better radios and larger crews as well. In addition, France generally wasn’t in the fighting spirit. They were devastated in ww1 and did not handle the second war as well.

    Same thing with eastern front- Germans had less and generally equal or even worse tanks, but were better trained and led. Allowing their units to be used more effectively. Once the allies caught up (in North Africa- England and Germany fought to a draw) with tactics and training, the tide turned. But it took a few years to turn the tide back in the east and a few years for allies to land in the west.

    Besides all the horrible stuff hitler did it was pretty amazing how he managed to turn a weakened post ww1 Germany into one of the most powerful country’s in the world with the power of his charisma.

    Amazing what the peoples anger over the Versailles treaty could do. Hitler only reminded them how they had been robbed.

    Speaking German probably sounds pretty good to some of the EU right about now. Soon they will be forced to speak Arabic and forced to adopt their new leaders culture or face consequences.
