Giving good treatment to German soldiers isn't a bad thing at all, they were people as well.. just figthing for the wrong side, i mean i wouldn't go as far as giving soup to concentration camp guards but foot soldiers that's a different thing.

what if his grandma was a Nazi supporter?

My grandfather was a mayor of a small city in Belgium in WW2, when the Germans came they said he could chose: 100 Kg of potatoes or they burned his village down... Not much of a choice. Helping the enemies for food was not always an option, it was necessary to prevent yourself /your family / your town from harm.
User avatar #293 to #131 - GnRNoD (05/09/2013) [-]
100Kg of potatoes is not much for a village, and it's a basic need for the soldiers...
Americans did worst things in Vietnam...

Showing respect to the Wehrmacht was always good. They're just the grunts. The Nazis themselves - especially the SS - deserved steamed **** on a dirt plate.
#8 to #1 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
they were forced into the war, most of them didn't like what they were doing, i'm sure some committed suicide and had horrible nightmare's about all those regrets, some thought it was for the greater good, sadly they were under Hitler's charismatic spell.
#16 to #8 - morkotlap (05/09/2013) [-]
It hadn't anything to do with Hitler. Whole Germany was pissed at the rest of europe over the Versailles Treaty. And kinda rightfully so. The French actually expected the Germany to pay them compensations till 1988. This caused hyperinflation in 1920 Germany, making the populace poor and desperate. Of course they threw themselves over to the first guy who had the balls to denounce and then violate the treaty. Not to mention feeding the impoverished populace and giving them sense of self-worth after the German empire was torn down.

So It's not that hard imagining the german troops going into battle in pretty good morale. They had pretty decent casus belli for each invaded land in the first two years of war.

The Wehrmacht did nothing wrong during the war. You have to remember that it was the Nazis who carried out all the war crimes. The Wehrmacht were soldiers and pawns in the Nazis' game.
#102 to #32 - unemployeddonkey (05/09/2013) [-]
im afraid I'll have to tell you that you're wrong saying this. I'm German and I had the Wehrmacht and its crimes the last year in History, which is my main subject. You could say, they were forced into the situation and they turned during the war, but however.. it happened, the Wehrmacht is proven to have commited several huge crimes. If you're interested in that stuff, I recommend you to read about it.

not to hate themselves but to learn from wrongdoing in the past, its better than governement that brainwash their citizen that their country is the "all good superhero liberator bla bla bla"
User avatar #301 to #102 - keiishiyama (05/09/2013) [-]
This is just what I learned from my European History and Contemporary Literature classes. The Wehrmacht hated the Nazis and what they were doing.

I forgot that an American developed the bomb that ended the war.
#42 to #40 - srslyjakecease (05/09/2013) [-]
You say that like it was one person who developed it.   
The idea was pushed forward by Einstein, developed by a large team of scientists lead by Oppenheimer, and was funded by the United States Government.    
   
Also the bit I'm talking about, the European front, had absolutely nothing to do with the bomb, it was over before the bomb was even finished.   
   
No, without the U.S.  D-day would have most likely have failed, or never occured, and the Germans would have been left in a one on one zerg-rush with the Russians.  There would have been no second front, and the war would have extended for an indefinite amount of time, with an uncertain outcome.

Because they didnt care about casualties.
User avatar #200 to #42 - flyingfucks (05/09/2013) [-]
You say one on one, what about on the western front with Britain and even the French Resistance? Dambusters and several other raids conducted on the German infrastructure counted for nothing? I'm not trying to downplay the huge impact that the Russians had on the war but nor do I think it was a 'one on one' battle.
User avatar #290 to #200 - srslyjakecease (05/09/2013) [-]
Fair point. The Guerrillas did more than their fair share of fighting in the war. However, a Guerrilla force is not as swiftly effective as an organized army.
User avatar #45 to #42 - gammajk (05/09/2013) [-]
Hitler still would've lost, he was a terrible military leader and he made a ******** of critical errors that led to his defeat and he would make more.
#47 to #45 - srslyjakecease (05/09/2013) [-]
Whether thats true or not, the war would have been much worse without the western front. Hitlers army was still enormous, and he had a lot of good generals, his own military leadership not withstanding.

A lot of his errors were made out of desperation in the final throws of the war, while others where mistakes he made because he insisted on doing what Napoleon couldn't. (invading Russia, and the British Isles for instance)

I'm not saying he would have won. What I AM saying is that the fighting with Germany wouldn't have ended in 1945.
#242 to #47 - anon (05/09/2013) [-]
Did you know that The Germans didn't plan to go to war until 1942 in order to get enough equipment and supplies for their troops? However, the huge welfare benefits Hitler gave the German people in order to win their allegiance forced him to attack Poland and Czechoslovakia prematurely.

It's interesting to see how the Germans developed superior weapons around 1942 as well.

My grandfather was in the Norwegian resistance.

Yup , we traded with the Germans , that aside the general population hated and hates nazis or any kind of military government . And we patched things up when the US were on the 70´s depression , Argentina aided them . until 76´ when the last and worst military dictatorship started , and not long after that , the war with Britain.

Hitler and his personal guard and some troops actually stayed in my Great Aunt's house in Poland. She was a teenager at the time and some of the troops wanted to "have their way with her." And Hitler stopped them and thanked my Great Aunt and her family for their hospitality.

Canada was the only country to accomplish their set objectives on D-Day
#257 to #125 - anon (05/09/2013) [-]
If i recall correctly, wasn't the main objective of the British and Canadians to liberate Caen? It took you guys about two months to liberate the city while the U.S. were already at Cherbourg in 1/4 of the time. If you are referring to the landings on Juno beach, yes it was successful but the priority was to link with Sword beach which was failed to be done. All in all, the entire invasion didn't go 100% to plan, but it was a decisive allied victory in the end. - Sincerely, you're friendly neighborhood Anon.
#194 to #125 - anon (05/09/2013) [-]
They had it fairly easy if I recall correctly. Well as easy as it's gonna get invading a damned beach surrounded by pillboxes with NAZIs wielding MGs.

My contry sided with Hitler. Apparently, Nazi officials sent warnings to our fascists because they were too cruel to the Jews. Let me point that out one more time:
Even the Nazis thought we were too cruel to the Jews.

It is important to note that we are today the Republic of Croatia, and we are pretty fairly left-winged, so things are pretty OK now for the minorities.

There is a ******** of examples. The only thing is, we don't know if they are real. I will say two things, though:
1. I remember someone told me that the Ustasha (our homemade Nazis) drank blood from the murdered Serbs and Jews.
2. My grandaunt that lives in a village near the place where the death camp was located told me that, when she was a kid, the river would bring corpses. As a very good human being, she would drag them ashore, took anything that was worth something and let them float away.

Canadian soldiers did quite a bit in the war, mostly along with the yanks.

The Germans sailed into Canadian rivers with their U-boats and planted weather and radio monitoring machines that weren't discovered until the 90s.

We were taking economical advantage of the war. We fighted in Russia.
We were allied with Germany against the communists.
We had just left a war between us behind us. So you can't expect much after this.
If you support the republicans doesn't mean that Spain did it wrong during the WWII.
I'm a patriot, so I don't support any of the sides in or Civil War.
The Nationalists did it better, so get over it.

Tampoco apoyo los nacionalismos. Quiero que todo español vuelva a estar orgulloso de serlo. Quiero controlar España, cambiarla y que todo el mundo tome ejemplo con orgullo. Si te apetece hablar de mis planes podemos hablar via Fb (Carlos Castillo Subiza).
No éramos unos lameculos. Franco era algo así como un calientapollas. Y Hitler era el que estaba pendiente de si España entraba o no al trapo. Pero no hicimos nada por ellos. La lucha contra el comunismo era algo anterior en España, por lo que la División Azul no fue enviada como apoyo a Alemania, sino que estaba luchando por la misma causa.
#296 to #273 - hairibar (05/09/2013) [-]
Más que nada, lo del nacionalismo es por no hundirse en la mierda en la que España se esta convirtiendo. En fin, se entra en crisis por pura estupidez, y en vez de arreglarlo, se intenta empeorar. En Euskadi tenemos una historia, idioma, cultura y pensamiento muy diferente al de España.
Simplemente, sabemos que somos Españoles, pero no nos sentimos como tal.

No tenéis una historia diferente. Tenéis nuestros orígenes. Motivo por el cual yo me sentiría incluso más orgulloso. Sois más España que los demás.

#299 to #297 - hairibar (05/09/2013) [-]
Es algo de sentimiento, no se puede cambiar.

Además, muchos países ya han salido de la crisis haciendo las cosas bien: castigar a los responsables de la crisis en vez de a las víctimas.

En Euskadi tenemos mucha mejor economía que en el resto de España, señal de que hacemos las cosas bien.

Euskadi no es Euskadi porque Euskadi lo decidiera.

No se trata de vosotros. Etiende que cada ciudad ha sido desarrollada para el beneficio del país.

Claro que no, al igual que no considero sudamérica española. Porque fueron conquistados. Cosa que no pasó ni con vosotros, ni con Cataluña ni con Galicia.
Solo con Navarra. Y sería el único independentismo que aceptaría a regañadientes. Pero afortunadamente el independentismo navarro es cosa de un puñado.
