HITLER’S CHALLENGE TO HIS CRITICS

PLEASE post on Facebook groups: PATRICK BUCHANAN is one of America’s foremost political icons. The journalist was a senior adviser to US Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan. The Republican presidential nominee is an author and expert on US policy both home and abroad.
Adolf Hitler cannot call propagandists to account. However, American Patrick Buchanan challenges palace authors and journalists who make money by touting victors’ propaganda. Buchanan directly poses pertinent questions relating to Adolf Hitler and World War II. The Ethnic European makes the same challenge.
Germany’s armed forces in 1939 were considerably smaller than those of France, the Soviet Union, and those of the Polish armed forces. Over half of Germany’s military was horse-drawn. The armed forces of Hitler’s Reich were tiny compared to those of Britain and her dominions: 897,000 men, 26 divisions, 1,146 tanks, about 2,600 field guns, 1,911 planes (747 fighters, 871 bombers) 15 capital ships, 6 aircraft carriers, 61 cruisers 181 destroyers, 59 submarines.
Pat Buchanan asks, “If Hitler was out to conquer the world, Britain, Africa, the Middle East, the United States, Canada, South America, India, Asia, and Australia, why did he spend three years building that hugely expensive Siegfried Line to protect Germany from France?
Why did he reluctantly get drawn into a war that was provoked by Poland that was urged on by England. How was it possible without a surface fleet, no troop transports, and only 29 oceangoing submarines? How do you conquer the world with a navy that cannot get out of the Baltic Sea?
If Hitler wanted the world, why did he not build strategic bombers, instead of two-engine Dorniers and Heinkels that could not even reach Britain from Germany? Why did he let the British army go at Dunkirk?
Why did he offer the British peace, twice, after Poland fell, and again after France fell? Why, when Paris fell, did Hitler not demand the French fleet, as the Allies demanded and get the Kaiser’s fleet? Why did he not demand bases in French-controlled Syria to attack Suez? Why did he beg Benito Mussolini not to attack Greece?
Hitler had never wanted war with Poland, but an alliance with Poland such as he had with Francisco Franco’s Spain, Mussolini’s Italy, Miklos Horthy’s Hungary and Father Jozef Tiso’s Slovakia.
Indeed, why would he want war when, by 1939, he was surrounded by allied, friendly or neutral neighbours, save France? And he had written off Alsace because reconquering Alsace meant war with France, and that meant war with Britain, whose empire he admired and whom he had always sought as an ally.
As of March 1939, Hitler did not even have a border with Russia. How then could he invade Russia? Winston Churchill was right when he called it “The Unnecessary War”, the war that may yet prove the mortal blow to our civilization”.
