You have to keep in mind that Hitler saw WWII as war of racial purity. "Inferior" races such as the Russians simply had to be removed from the face of the earth to allow for the spread of the superior race, the Aryans.
I have read some accounts of the war in Russia that claim that if Hitler had gone into Russia as a liberator, freeing the Russian people from the oppression of Stalin instead of a conqueror out to destroy the people of Russia that he might have won the war. But that was simply impossible for Hitler. He could not cooperate with "inferior" peoples. They could only be subjugated or destroyed. Slaves or corpses was the only way Hitler and Naziism could treat any "inferior" race.

and Nazi team provides... WHAT? Mind you, it was two-sides agreement. If they forget to teach you this in your volunteerely history class, go back and ask your teachers.


That's my point Map, it was a "two-sides agreement", both benefited, that's the whole point of a team. The point is the Nazis and Soviets were on the SAME team while Europe was being raped and British cities were getting bombed.


NNN. ...
And only the US looks like an angel. Is it because US exhibits an angel nature or is it because US had her ass far away, when other countries had not?


The more interesting question is why do you seem so upset that US is portrayed as an angel?
Certainly distance had something to do with US actions, but the US also provided significant assistance to Britain before it even declared war. No doubt the US could have taken a stronger stance against Nazism if it had been closer, but then you would the first to condem the US for war mongering, and if we took any action, then condem the US for not working through the League of Nations.

I'd think you'd have a good argument over that with most history and anthropology interested gradeschoolers.
The Americans influence should be more closely compared to that of a hook worm swimming up your pee-hole.

Well, this was said in ironical mode.
