Adolf Hitler and the Army of Mankind

'Respect the man of noble races other than your own,
who carries out, in a different place, a combat parallel to yours -- to ours.
He is your ally. He is our ally, be he at the other end of the world.'
-Savitri Devi

    Before you begin to mount feeble accusations of 'hater' and 'racist', let's get a few things straight. Many countries fought on the side of Hitler's Germany in WW2, including several non-white ones. One of Germany's primary allies of the 'Tripartite Pact' (signed on September 27, 1940) was not white, Japan. In fact, when the USA declared war on Japan the next year Germany honored the Tripartite Pact and declared war on the United States.

     Indians, Asians, Arabs and blacks not only fought on the side of National Socialist Germany, but also wore the eagle and swastika proudly on their breast. Dozens of nationalities volunteered for the elite Waffen-SS and many non-whites of a wide range of ethnic backgrounds served the Axis in many capacities. In fact, it was the largest multi-racial fighting force in history! Not to mention also the most religiously diverse as well.

     Commando Extraordinaire Otto Skorzeny describes the diverse nature of the Waffen-SS in his 1975 memoirs:

'...from 1942 European soldiers from many lands and peoples could be found: Albanians, Bosnians, Britons, Bulgarians, Cossacks, Croats, Danes, Dutch, Estonians, Finns, Flemings, French, Georgians, Greeks, Hungarians, Italians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Norwegians, Romanians, Russians, Serbs, Slovakians, Swedes, Swiss, Ukrainians, Walloons, Armenians, Byelorussians, Hindus, Kirghizes, Tartars, Turkmen and Uzbeks served under their own flags in the Waffen-SS. Almost all of these peoples were represented in my unit.'

[Above: Handsome and dashing Austrian Otto Skorzeny -- without a doubt the greatest commando of WWII.
The Americans called him 'Scarface' because of his prominent scar, which he received in a fencing accident as a university student in Vienna.]

     By the end of the war foreign members of the Waffen-SS outnumbered Germans! An average of six out of every ten men in the Waffen-SS were foreign volunteers. The English historian Antony James Beevor has this to say about what developed between these enormously brave and courageous men:

'an extraordinary comradeship of the damned had grown up among the foreign volunteers defending the last bastion of German nationalism.'
(Berlin: The Downfall, 1945. ©2003)

     These were men ready to die for their beliefs. They believed strongly and passionately. Together, as one, come what may. Despite the so-called 'democracies' preventing them from defeating communism, their efforts and sacrifices most likely prevented communism from infecting all of Europe, and likely the world.

     The Germans did not segregate their troops. Blacks, Asians, Arabs and Whites all fought and lived and died side-by-side. A sharp contrast to the American and British treatment of non-whites that fought for them. These unfortunate troops were often used as cannon fodder and not even allowed to fight with white troops.

     The Japanese Americans who volunteered for the U.S. military were fighting for a country who had interned their families in concentration camps. Over 110,000 Japanese people who lived on the Pacific coast were interned with no crime other than being born Japanese. It is a little known fact that thousands of Americans of Italian, Latin-American, and German ethnicity were also thrown into American concentration camps. Even Aleut people in Alaska were interned. A neatly hidden fact.

There are many books that document this scarcely known treacherous act. Some examples are:

  • Una Storia Segreta : The Secret History of Italian American Evacuation and Internment During World War II by Lawrence Distasi ©2001

    American wartime law greatly restricted the freedoms and required identity cards of 600,000 Italian 'resident aliens'. 10,000 Italian-Americans along the West Coast were forcibly relocated and 250 were actually imprisoned in concentration camps for up to two years. Some Italian Americans were even forced to abandon their own homes and businesses.

    [Above: Shattered Lives, Shattered Dreams: The Untold Story of America's Enemy Aliens in World War II.]

    More than 10,000 German-American civilians were thrown into concentration camps in America during WWII. None of them were ever compensated for the loss of property or the time they spent in concentration camps.

  • We Were Not the Enemy: Remembering the United States’ Latin-American Civilian Internment Program of World War II by Heidi Donald ©2007

    [Above: We Were Not the Enemy: Remembering the United States’ Latin-American Civilian Internment Program of World War II.]

    Here is the description of the book:

    'The United States clandestinely funds the operation of a huge prison in Cuba. Men, women, and children are spirited away from their homes and imprisoned indefinitely. No charges are made; no legal counsel is allowed. Newspapers fill with stories of espionage and enemies. Current events? No. During World War II, the United States used tactics remarkably similar to those in use today against presumed terrorists. By 1939, President Franklin Roosevelt had covertly authorized J. Edgar Hoover's Secret Intelligence Service to begin surveillance of Axis nationals in Latin America. Believing that "all German nationals without exception [are] dangerous," the United States surreptitiously pressured Latin-American countries to arrest and deport more than four thousand civilians of German ethnicity to the United States. There, many languished in internment camps, while others were shipped to war-torn Germany.'

  • The Prison Called Hohenasperg: An American Boy Betrayed by His Government During World War II by Arthur D. Jacobs ©1999

    [Above: The Prison Called Hohenasperg: An American Boy Betrayed by His Government During World War II.]

    The book's own description best describes this unbelievable and truly insane book:

    'Unknown to most Americans, more than 10,000 Germans and German Americans were interned in the United States during WWII. This story is about the internment of a young American and his family. He was born in the U.S.A. and the story tells of his perilous path from his home in Brooklyn to internment at Ellis Island, N.Y. and Crystal City, Texas, and imprisonment, after the war, at a place in Germany called Hohenasperg.

    When he arrived in Germany in the dead of winter, he was transported to Hohenasperg in a frigid, stench-filled, locked, and heavily guarded, boxcar. Once in Hohenasperg, he was separated from his family and put in a prison cell. He was only twelve years old! He was treated like a Nazi by the U.S. Army guards and was told that if he didn't behave he would be killed.'

         One of the famous American 'Tuskegee Airmen', Alexander Jefferson, wrote a book called 'Red Tail Captured, Red Tail Free' where he talks about being a second class citizen in his own country. He was shot down and put into a German P.O.W. camp where for the first time in his life he wasn't segregated from the white troops. He recalls the incredible irony of finally being freed and returning home and no sooner did he walk off the ship when he was told 'Whites to the right, niggers to the left'!

    [Above: 'Red Tail Captured, Red Tail Free' ©2005]

    While America was supposedly fighting for 'freedom' and 'democracy' in Europe, blacks were rioting and violently fighting for their rights back in America. For example, in 1943 black Americans rioted in the city of Detroit--the heavy hand of 'freedom' killed twenty-four of them!

    Another example of America's hypocrisy and outright brutality was the inhuman treatment of WW2 veteran Isaac Woodard, Jr (March 18, 1919 – September 23, 1992). This black American was attacked by South Carolina police in 1946, while still in his army uniform, just hours after being honorably discharged from the United States Army! This attack was so brutal it blinded Woodard for life!

    Ironic that when America occupied Germany after the war they brought with them their racist policies which were previously unknown in Germany.

    The book The Day of Battle: The War in Sicily and Italy, 1943-1944, by Rick Atkinson (Macmillon, 2007) gives us some very interesting statistics of Allied racism:

    'When War II began in September 1939 fewer than 4000 blacks served in the U.S. Army; more than two years later the U.S. Navy had only six black sailors-excluding mess stewards. At the time of the Anzio landings (May 1944), the U.S. Army had 633,000 officers, of whom only 4,500 were black. The U.S. Navy was worse, with 82,000 black enlisted sailors and no black officers; the Marine Corps which had rejected all black enlistments until President Roosevelt intervened, would not commission its first black officer until several months after the war ended...
    …blacks were shunted into quartermaster companies for duties such as truck drivers, bakers, launderers, laborers and the like.'

    A 1944 German propaganda leaflet targeting black American soldiers stated truthfully:

    'In World War I they promised your father's racial equality as a reward for fighting the war.

    What did they get? What did you get?

    The lousiest jobs.
    The lousiest flats.
    The lousiest pay.
    The lousiest chances.

    Poverty, Unemployment, Race Riots, Lynching, Hanging and Burning!

    and

    The general contempt of all Whites in the U.S.A.

    RICH (WHITE) MAN'S WAR

    POOR (COLORED) MAN'S FIGHT'

    [Above: This is the flip side of the leaflet bearing the text above.
    It says: 'Race War' (top left) and 'Fleeing Negro, who is already hurt, is chased by Detroit mobsters. Lead pipe (center) was later used in finishing him off.']

         When the capital of the German Reich, Berlin, crumbled there was over a dozen nationalities defending it. There were Americans, British, French, Italians, Russians, Waloonians, Danes, Norwegians, Swedes, Iranians, Spaniards, Africans... the list goes on and on. In fact the bulk of defenders were not even German. Artur Axmann, leader of the Hitler Youth, when fleeing through the fiery ruins of Berlin, was shocked when suddenly his group stumbled on:

    'What we saw before our astonished eyes was a kind of SS international brigade-very few Germans but a lot of
    Danes, Swedes, Norwegians, Dutch, Belgians, Latvians and that French group called Kampfgruppe Charlemagne.'

    (O'Donnell, The Bunker, 304)

        Imagine that. The last stand of the Third Reich, defended by foreign born troops. They met a fiery death because they believed in what they were fighting for. Look it up.

        Everywhere the German and Axis armies went they brought with them a high standard of living previously undreamt. To many remote parts of Russia they brought with them modern civilization itself. The liberating German and Axis armies encountered poverty and despair on a level that shocked them to the core. The deathly policies of communism had not only crushed people's livelyhoods, but destroyed their spirits. Joseph Goebbels described it best in one of his last writings, on April 20, 1945, in a newspaper piece called 'Our Hitler', celebrating the Führer's 56th birthday:

    'Our enemies claim that the Führer’s soldiers marched as conquerors through the lands of Europe — but wherever they came,
    they brought prosperity and happiness, peace, order, reliable conditions, a plenitude of work, and therefore a decent life.
    Our enemies claim their soldiers came to the same lands as liberators — but wherever they come there is poverty
    and misery, chaos, devastation and destruction, unemployment, hunger and mass death.'

         There were plans for the German armies and its allies in Russia, fighting Communism, to link up straight-away with the Japanese armies. Imagine, these great world powers, allies for many years, of such different races and cultures, meeting as friends on the battlefield, and then fighting together for a common goal. The Land of the Rising Sun and the Sons of the Swastika.

         Japan wanted an Asia for Asians. The European occupiers had practically enslaved the Asian people in their 'colonies.' Germany and her European allies were also fighting those same world powers. They also believed that a people should be led by their own race. The world would then be in balance, the way nature intended. In fact, when Japan liberated the Asian islands and nations previously occupied by Europeans, they asked Germany if it wanted a share of these lands, and the answer was no! For too long empires, conquest, and ultimately greed, had set out to enslave foreign lands.

    [Above: Women in The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. Note the flags of Manchukuo, Japan and China.]

         A Japanese leaflet from 1944 explains Japanese intentions in a few words [Note: Nippon = Japan]:

    'Nippon today is engaged in the most titanic struggle against Anglo-American aggression for the purpose of freeing all Asians from their odious encroachment. Nippon is resolutely determined more than ever to crush Asia's foes decisively in order to establish lasting peace and prosperity in East Asia and emancipate the one billion Asians from centuries of Occidental domination.'

         Anyone who knows the truth, knows that countries didn't lose the Second World War, mankind itself lost. The same age-old powers-that-be had won again. Their victory came at a terrible cost. They butchered tens of millions with their indiscriminate bombs. Over four million Germans died in concentration camps of starvation and the elements after the war was over. Look it up. Communist soldiers, berserk with propaganda, raped millions of German women, MILLIONS, from ages 6 to 90! Many of them after the war was over. Research it for yourself. You'll be amazed at what's been hidden from us.

         Recently declassified United States documents reveal that the president of the United States knew about the impending attack on Pearl Harbor and did nothing about it. In fact, he and his administration took measures to hide it. Not only did they know about it in advance, but they also instigated it. They would do anything to bring America into WW2, and since Japan was a friend and ally of Germany, they knew that by instigating a war with Japan, Germany would have to follow. They violated Japan's waters and even strafed her boats with machine gun fire. The information is out there, take the time to find it.

         We implore you, question what you've been taught. We've all been taught lies. The good guys lost World War Two. Mankind lost World War Two. The tyrants won. But the war isn't over. Free men and women, white, black, red, yellow and brown are learning the truth.

         The truth will make you angry. The lengths they have gone to lie to us. No matter your country of origin you are a victim of the same propaganda lies. It is international. They want to divide and conquer us. They want us to hate and fear one another. But in reality, it is They who hate all of us. And it is They who shall learn to fear us as well.

         Given time, and our old Gods' will, all races shall unite and wipe this tyrant from the face of the earth. And this blue planet will sigh, bearing a lighter load, less millions of its killers and enslavers. And all of this terrible dark time will be a story to tell our children's children. It is a fated time to come. After the fire. A world anew.

         But pictures speak louder than words! Don't take our word for it, look and see for yourself! And ask yourself, why did they hide this truth from us?

  • The British rulers were especially evil to their Indian subjects during their long occupation of India. The British East India Company first reared its demonic head in India in 1612. Prior to WWII millions of Indians had died due to famines caused in no small part to heavy British taxation and cruelty.

    During WWII, unknown to most, was the 'Bengal Famine' on 1943-44, a genocide the British engineered largely for profit and war motives. This 'artificial famine' murdered almost four MILLION Indians! The unhung war criminal Winston Churchill knowingly diverted supplies of medical aid and food that was being dispatched to starving Indians to the already well supplied soldiers in Europe.

    [Above: A child and dog succumb to Churchill's evil. Bengal, 1943.]

  • In the book Churchill’s Secret War, by author Madhusree Mukerjee, a grisly picture is painted: 'Parents dumped their starving children into rivers and wells. Many took their lives by throwing themselves in front of trains. Starving people begged for the starchy water in which rice had been boiled. Children ate leaves and vines, yam stems and grass. People were too weak even to cremate their loved ones.
    No one had the strength to perform rites...Dogs and jackals feasted on piles of dead bodies in Bengal’s villages... Mothers had turned into murderers, village belles into whores, fathers into traffickers of daughters...'

    The British prime minister mercilessly turned down appeals from two successive Viceroys, his own Secretary of State for India and even the President of the US!

    Subhas Chandra Bose, who was with the Japanese at the time building the Indian National Army in hopes of freeing India, offered to send rice from Burma, but his offer didn't even get past the censors.

    Millions of dead Indians mattered not to the blood-thirsty powers-that-be. What mattered was annihilating the Germans and any other souls who dared resist the hidden world power's plans for global slavery.

    [Above: No shortage of food here. 'V' is for victory for world slavery!]

  • Sir Winston Churchill left this charming comment to history:
    'I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion. The famine was their own fault for breeding like rabbits.'

    [Above: Waffen-SS Free India Legion sleeve shield]

  • Officially called the 'Indische Freiwilligen Legion der Waffen-SS', the Azad Hind or Free India Legion was formed mostly from POWs captured in Greece and North Africa. These men developed into a highly trained and superbly equipped division, but unfortunately this force never saw fruition of its mission, nor did it see large scale combat. It did however see some fighting. Its 9th company was transferred to Italy where it saw some action against the Allied invaders. Additionally, while in France, soldiers of the Free India Legion saw action against 'Maquis' terrorists in which a few Indians were killed in action and several others were honored afterwards for heroism.

    There are reports that Russian soldiers at war's end found many dead soldiers in the area around the Reich Chancellery that were guessed to be 'Tibetan' or 'Turkestani', but there are other reports that say that they were men from the Free India Legion. We may never know the truth about who these men were, since there were so very many different races defending the capital of National Socialism, Berlin.

    In 1943 Chandra Bose, the leader of the Free India Divison, would later raise an army in the Pacific known as the 'Azad Hind Fauj', or the Indian National Army (INA). Chandra Bose was a tireless warrior for India's independence and freedom from colonial slavery. He found fertile ground for his dreams and eager comrades in Germany. He met with Adolf Hitler several times and was respected greatly by the Germans.

    Today there are statues to Bose all over India. He is viewed with great respect and admiration by many Indians today. Indians have expressed to me that he is like India's George Washington.

    [Above: Azad Hind means 'Free India', it was also a rallying cry for independence. India was under colonial occupation by the British.]

  • 'We should have but one desire today, the desire to die so that India may live, the desire to face a martyr’s death, so that the path to freedom may be paved with the martyr’s blood.'
    -Subhas Chandra Bose

  • Arnold Spencer Leese (1878-1956), after joining and becoming dissatisfied with the British Fascists in 1924 founded the Imperial Fascist League and ran a newspaper called 'The Fascist'. The I.F.L. operated between the years 1928 and 1939. Leese was a prominent veterinarian, author, publisher and politician. In 1924 he was historically elected 'Councillor' in his home town of Stamford, Lincolnshire. Running as a fascist, his comrade and he were the first constitutionally elected fascists in England. Like all political dissenters, he was jailed at the start of WWII for no other reason than his beliefs.]

    'If I am killing a rat with a stick and have him in a corner, I am not indignant if he tries to bite me and squeals and gibbers with rage.

    Legion-Unterscharfuehrer Eugene Vaulot (April 29, 1945)

  • French Waffen-SS volunteers ranged from 18,000 to 22,000 men. They were loyal and ferocious soldiers who stood with their German comrades until the very last moments of WWII. It has been recorded that the French Waffen-SS divisions also included a number of personnel from the French colonies, including French Indo-China (what the French colonialists called Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia), and even a lone Japanese! Four black men (one was from Martinique) are also recorded to have volunteered, and were accepted. They fought on the Eastern Front and at least one of them is known to have fallen in action.

  • Pierre Laval (June 28, 1883 – October 15, 1945) was a French politician. From January 27, 1931 to February 20, 1932 he served as Prime Minister of France and also headed another government from June 7, 1935 to January 24, 1936.
    His most important and historic role however was his prominent role as vice-president of Vichy's Council of Ministers from July 11, 1940 to December 13, 1940. Furthermore, he served as the head of government from April 18, 1942 to August 20, 1944.
    After the Allied occupation of France in 1944, Laval was arrested for 'treason'. In a mock show-trial, Pierre Laval was found guilty of loving his country and murdered by firing squad.

    [Above: Jacques Doriot]

  • Jacques Doriot (September 26, 1898 - February 22, 1945) was a French politician prior to and during World War II. Doriot founded the ultra-nationalist 'Parti Populaire Français' (PPF) in 1936. His party were strong supporters of France being structured like National Socialist Germany and Fascist Italy. When France declared war on Germany in 1939 Doriot was a dedicated and vocal supporter of Germany and supported the occupation of Northern France by Germany. He gave all his energies to various anti-communist projects, including Radio Paris.

    In 1941 Jacques Doriot would take a step that would forever cement his name in the pages of history--he co-founded the Légion des Volontaires Français (LVF) with Marcel Déat. The LVF was created so that French men could fight communism on the Eastern Front. Doriot practiced what he preached, he joined the LVF and saw combat on the Eastern Front in 1941. Doriot fought with the LVF until it was nearly destroyed and then joined the Wehrmacht where he was awarded the Iron Cross in 1943.

    Jacques Doriot was killed on February 22, 1945 while driving from Mainau to Sigmaringen (a town in southern Germany, in the state of Baden-Württemberg). His car was strafed by Allied fighters. He was buried in Mengen (in Württemberg).

    The soldiers of Milice (known as miliciens), wore a blue uniform jacket, brown shirt and a wide blue beret shaped like a boat. It employed both full-time and part-time personnel, and also had a youth wing. Many of Milice's men were working-class civilians who believed in the aims of the organization. They understood the threat of communism and its soulless sister capitalism. At its height in 1944 the Milice membership reached 25,000–30,000 by 1944.

    When the Allies invaded France many of the Milice fled to Germany to avoid the bloodthirsty communist rampages that the Allied invasion enabled. Many of them would later join the valiant Waffen-SS Charlemagne division, where fate would have them be amongst the final defenders of the ruins of Berlin.

    [Below: Philippe Henriot. Circa 1934.]

  • Philippe Henriot (January 7, 1889 - June 28, 1944) was a man of many talents. He was a poet, a politician, a journalist and alas he was a Minister in the French government at Vichy. He was a beloved director and orator of political broadcasts. He was also a part-time member of Milice, which he joined in 1943. He believed 'with a deep-seated conviction that Christian civilisation was engaged in a life and death struggle against Bolshevism.'

    Philippe Henriot was a devoted Roman Catholic. In 1936 the head of the FNC, General de Castelnau, described Henriot as 'an ardent defender of religion, the family and society.' It was such beliefs that led Henriot in 1941 to support the Axis invasion of the communist Soviet Union. He stated correctly: 'Bolshevism is the enemy of Christianity.'

    In 1943 Henriot was appointed Secretary of State for Information. As the government's spokesman he created many broadcasts and programs for Radio Paris. He also broadcast twice a day on Radio Vichy. He was beloved by many for his passionate speeches. Eloquent and dedicated, when Philippe Henriot's voice crackled through the radio waves all of France listened, even his enemies. Indeed he was so beloved and influential that 'Families shift their meal times so as not to miss him. There is no-one left in the street at the time he speaks.' His enemies called him the 'French Goebbels'.

    On January 6, 1944 his talents led him to be made the French Minister of Information and Propaganda. Only five months later, on June 28, 1944, a group of cowardly assassins murdered him in cold blood outside his home at the Ministry building.

    Philippe Henriot was given a State Funeral in Paris, presided over by Cardinal Suhard in Notre Dame Cathedral. Many thousands of mourners payed their last respects to this beloved national hero.

  • After France was occupied by the invading Allied armies, many thousands whom had helped free their country and/or had worked for the Vichy government were murdered by communists and other human monsters. An astounding 300,000 people were arrested which resulted in 'guilty' verdicts of 124,613 people, of which around 50,000 of those received jail sentences. 6,763 were condemned to death in civil courts (767 were actually passed sentence on), and an equal number were condemned in military tribunals. Over 50,000 others were stripped of their civil rights. Another 25,000 professionals, administration and otherwise, were also penalized. Democratic justice in all of its hypocritical, iron-fisted glory. An untold thousands of women were raped, humiliated and beaten. Their crime: they were accused of being having romantic relationships with Germans. One book estimates the number of women targeted to be over twenty thousand! (Virgili, p. 52)

  • When it came time to raise a division of volunteers from Spain there was such a turn-out that over two divisions worth of men showed up to volunteer. The Spanish were extremely eager to fight Communism, which had nearly destroyed their country during the Spanish Civil War a few years earlier (not to mention pay back their German comrades who had fought alongside them in their civil war). After a grueling nearly 700 mile march to the Russian Front, the brave and tenacious Spaniards proved their worth under fire.

    [Above: Waffen-SS Spanish sleeve shield]

    [Spanish volunteers of the 'Division Azul' or 'Blue Division.'
    Even after the fortunes of war turned against Germany and its Axis partners and the leader of Spain ordered the division home, thousands (close to 3,000)
    refused, choosing instead to fight on with their German comrades, who previously in 1936 had helped Spain win its civil war against the communists.
    On the Eastern Front, if Russian commanders found out they would be facing the Spanish division, they were known to lie to their men and tell them they would be facing 'regular' army soldiers. Such was their reputation for courage and fighting ability. These utterly loyal and ferocious Spaniards would later fight to the death defending Berlin. They were amongst the very last defenders of the ruins of the capital of the Reich, attached to Division Nordland, in the 'Unit Ezquerra' (named after their captain, Miguel Ezquerra, a veteran of the Blue Division).]

    [Above: Miguel Ezquerra Sanchez (January 10, 1913 - October 29, 1984). He was a Spanish Falangist and a veteran of the Spanish civil war. Loyal to his German comrades who helped Spain during the civil war, upon the outbreak of WW2 he immediately attempted to volunteer to help Germany. Although initially declined, when finally Spain decided to send volunteers he eagerly signed up. Thus the vaunted Blue Division was formed. It fought courageously on the Eastern Front, earning high regard from their comrades. When Spain repartriated the division on April 2, 1944, Ezquerra secretly crossed the border and returned to Germany to fight on. Many other Spanish veterans returned as well and they joined the Waffen-SS. With the division Nordland, ranked a Hauptsturmfuhrer, he helped defend Adolf Hitler's bunker in Berlin, commanding a unit of the last of his brave countrymen. Ezquerra was personally awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron by Adolf Hitler himself. In addition to this, Adolf Hitler awarded him German nationality.]

    In 1941, Muńoz Grandes was given the command of the División Azul (Blue Division), Spain's volunteer unit created to fight communism with the Germans in Russia.

    During his command Muńoz Grandes was decorated with the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross, with Oak Leaves personally added by Hitler. He was recalled to Spain in December 1942, his post on the Eastern Front being taken up by Emilio Esteban Infantes.

  • One of Germany's strongest and most able allies, Japan fought on until the bloody end. On September 27, 1940 the Tripartite Pact, or Three-Power Pact, was signed.
    The fates of three remarkable peoples, Germany, Japan and Italy, were one, come what may.

    Germany sent Japan some of its most sensitive and secret technology, right up until the end of the war.
    This extremely valuable information included: fighter jet blueprints including various engine designs and even atomic research--sending Japan a supply of heavy water, mercury and uranium, on the very last U-boat mission of the war.

    Adolf Hitler bestowed the title 'honorary Aryan' upon the Japanese following the Anti-Comintern Pact on Communism in 1936. They were granted this status, which granted them numerous privilages in Germany, not simply for economic, military, or political reasons, but more so because of their racial integrity. This distinction was viewed by the Japanese people with pride and as a great compliment.

    Karl Haushofer, a German general, geographer, and geopolitician, saw Japan as the brother nation to Germany. He travelled the Orient extensively and fell in love with Japan during a 1908 military mission to Tokyo to study the Japanese Army and to be an adviser. During his time in the Orient he learned Korean, Japanese, and Mandarin, adding these languages to his repertoire of German, Russian, French, and English. He called the Japanese people 'The Aryans of the East'.

    When all was lost in Europe for the Axis cause Japan invited Hitler and Mussolini to seek refuge in Japan. They declined, both of them would choose death fighting for the countries they loved. Banzai!

  • The Russian Liberation Army, abbreviated in Cyrillic as 'POA' and in Latin as 'ROA', was also known as the Vlasov Army.
    In 1944 it was officially renamed the 'Armed Forces of the Committee for the Liberation of the Peoples of Russia (VS-KONR)'. In 1943 there were nearly a half a million Russian volunteers serving on the front lines, and another one hundred thousand or more serving in other 'non-combat' positions. This is a massive role played by ex-prisoners of war and showed that the Germans had nothing against the Russians as a people, but instead against communism.

    [Above: General Andrey Vlasov, a fierce anti-Communist, persuaded many of his Russian countrymen to fight for the Axis. ]

  • In the summer of 1944 General Vlasov and Heinrich Himmler met and ironed out details of the formation of a massive new army composed of Russians. They went over what was called the Smolensk Manifesto (written in 1942), which declared in the new Russia '...every people will obtain national freedom, including the right of self-determination. The realization of this right to national independence and freedom is possible, however, only after destroying Stalin and his clique.'

    In thirteen points, the Manifesto declared and promised the following: (1) abolition of compulsory labor, (2) abolition of collective farms, and land grants to the peasants, (3) reintroduction of private commerce and handicraft, (4) termination of terror, (5) personal freedom, (6) freedom of faith, conscience, speech, press, and assembly, (7) free choice of work, (8) guarantee of free development for all nationalities, (9) release of all political prisoners, (10) rebuilding of towns, villages and factories at the expense of the state, and (11) a guarantee of minimum subsistence for all invalids and their next of kin.

    Himmler and Vlasov agreed that there would initially be five divisions organized from Russian POWs and workers from the occupied eastern territories, whose number by then had reached over FIVE MILLION!

    Unfortunately it was too late. The communist-democratic armies were in full swing. The fortunes of war were against Germany and her armies of liberation, and, largely speaking, this dream army of free Russians, never came to be.

His ashes are kept at Renkoji Temple near Tokyo.]

Once there he would meet Japan's Premier Hideki Tojo and the Emperor Hirohito himself. The cargo of U-boat 180 was also very significant. It contained samples of various German weapons and machine parts, a sample of quinine for future shipments to Japan (quinine is a drug used to treat malaria and was badly needed for Japan's tropical war in the Pacific), blueprints for jet engines and V-1 and V-2 rockets, as well as other items for Japanese technical evaluation. It is a little known fact that the Germans and Japanese were very close allies and friends. The fact that they shared their most top secret weapons and technologies is a testament to this. Below is an example of such shared technology. The German Me 163B Komet interceptor's blueprints were shared with the Japanese and used to build a Japanese version.]

For interception missions, the J7W was to be armed with four forward-firing 30 mm cannons in the nose. On 3 August 1945, the first prototype flew, two more subsequent flights were made, for a total of 45 minutes airborne. The only surviving example is a prototype dismantled by the US Navy and is currently in storage at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. Click on the picture to see other images.]

  • A vast majority of Arab peoples supported the Axis during WW2. They saw in Adolf Hitler the same thing as their European, Asian and African counterparts. He was a savior. Since Germany had no colonial interests, he was to be their liberator.
    After France's defeat to Germany in 1940, jubilant Arabs chanted against the French and British on streets of Damascus:
    'No more Monsieur, no more Mister, Allah's in Heaven and Hitler's on earth.'
    Posters in Arabic were common in shop windows and decorated various towns of Syria with the words:
    'In heaven God is your ruler, on earth Hitler'.

  • Finland's war against Communist Russia began on November 30, 1939, when Russia invaded Finland. The Soviets possessed three times as many soldiers, thirty times as many aircraft and one hundred times as many tanks! However, the Finns fought like wolverines. In one battle alone the communist invaders suffered 7,000-9,000 casualties, compared to a mere 400 Finnish casualties! The arms and material the Finns captured in this battle ('Battle of Raate Road') was enormous, and much needed. They captured dozens of tanks, hundreds of vehicles, thousands of horses, artillery pieces, anti-tank guns, medical supplies, rifles and ammunition.

    Unfortunately, the Soviet juggernaut proved to be too much in the end. The god of battle favors numbers, and the communists had nearly endless human drones. What was known as 'The Winter War' ended in a peace treaty in March 1940. Finland lost eleven percent of its land and thirty percent of its economy.

    When Germany and its Axis allies preemptively invaded Russia in 1941 Finland finally had its chance to bring the war to its communist enemies. Shamefully when the fortunes of war turned against Germany and the Axis Finland obtained a separate peace with Russia. They signed an armistice with Russia on September 19, 1944. Russia demanded all German troops be kicked out of Finland immediately.

    What followed was known as the 'Lapland War' (September 1944-April 1945). It was a moment of dishonor for Finland and especially its brave soldiers. They were forced to fight their previous ally, Germany. However, numerous Finns refused to turn their guns on their German comrades. These honorable Finns fought beside Germany and the Axis until the bitter end. Instead of returning to their homeland they chose to stick it out with their brothers and die if they must. A true example of selfless bravery and comradery.

  • Many Irish were eager supporters of Germany in WWII. In June 1940 when Germany occupied the British Channel Islands around 800 Irish laborers were to be found there. Asked to either go home or work for the Germans, nearly all of them chose to work for the Germans.
    Also of aid to Nazi Germany were the 140 or so Irish men and women who worked in propaganda and espionage training departments in Ireland.

    Several volunteers from Ireland even fought in SS-Jagdverband Mitte. Two of them were SS-Uscha James Brady (aka de Lacy) and SS-Mann Frank Stringer (aka Le Page). Many more served as agents of the Abwehr and later of the Sicherheitsdienst (SD) alongside legions of other foreign soldiers.

    [Above: General Eoin O'Duffy. Circa 1933.]

  • Eoin O'Duffy was the popular leader of the 'People's National Party' which was closely aligned with Germany and its aims. O'Duffy even sent Adolf Hitler an offer that he would raise a 'Green Legion' of Irishmen to fight on the Russian front. O'Duffy was no stranger to battle, he had previously led a 700 strong pro-Franco Irish brigade in the Spanish Civil War. In the 1940's O'Duffy spent time in Germany discussing a free Ireland and how he could assist the Axis in its war against Britain. Unfortunately, Eoin O'Duffy died in 1944 before he could carry out many of his dreams of Irish independence. He was given a state funeral and buried in Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin, alongside his comrades and other Irish freedom fighters]

    [Above: Germany and the Axis cause found many supporters and friends amongst the Irish people, who assisted the Axis war effort whenever possible. This included denying the Allies access to strategic ports and even assisting German U-Boats. British intelligence reported that 'Dingle Bay' and the inlets on the coast of county Kerry and Cork were open for use for the refueling of German U-boats, which in turn attacked Allied convoys and shipping.

    [Above: Tomoyuki Yamashita]

  • Tomoyuki Yamashita (November 8, 1885 – February 23, 1946) was a Japanese military genius amply nicknamed 'The Tiger of Malaya.'
    He is legendary for tricking the British into surrendering Singapore, even though his troops were badly outnumbered, low on ammunition, starving and suffering from malaria.
    The Japanese, at a cost of 3,000 dead and 30,000 captured, captured 130,000 British, Indian, and Australian troops, the largest surrender of British-led personnel in history and the loss of the 'invincible' fortress of Singapore.

    This fortress was considered to be amongst the most invulnerable in the world. A 'Times' article of the period describes it:
    'For 20 years we constructed this fortress. Two million tons of earth had to be moved and Great Britain spent 60 million pounds (60,000,000 pounds).
    Two months ago Singapore was still the mightiest base of Britain and the U.S.A. in the hemisphere of the world.'

    This amazing feat helped Yamashita to be executed by the vengeful Allies after the war. Talk about cowardly sore losers!
    He was officially charged with war crimes, even though the crimes in question didn't even happen under his jurisdiction, but under the Navy's and beneath his Japanese rival's command. It was apparent to all that he was innocent of these charges, the reporters covering his show trial even voted 12 to 0 to acquit him. In the end he was guilty of embarrassing the British and murdered for his cleverness.
    In World War Two he was never defeated.

    He was hung on 2-24-1946.

    His last words being: 'I will pray for the Emperor's long life and his prosperity forever.']

    [Above: The 'Cross of Honor of the German Mother', awarded to mothers who had eight or more children. In the Third Reich motherhood was a cherished and noble act. This award came in three classes: bronze (4-5 children), silver (6-7 children) and gold (8 or more). But this award was more than just an empty gesture. The famous newspaper Völkischer Beobachter (People’s Observer) in 1938 stated:
    "…the holder of the Mother’s Cross of Honor will in the future enjoy all types of privileges that we by nature have accustomed to our nation's honored comrades and our injured war veterans."]

  • In 1932 a New York Times journalist wrote:
    'Women have been among the strongest pillars of Hitlerism from its very inception… At Nazi meetings the proportion of women in attendance is surprisingly large. '
    He was right. Fifty percent of the National Socialist votes in 1932 came from women.

    [Above: This early NSDAP poster was aimed toward women voters: 'We Women Are Voting Slate 2 National Socialists.']

    Women voted astoundingly on Adolf Hitler's side. Check out the pictures below, taken from a period New York newspaper.

    Adolf Hitler once said: 'I left jail after thirteen months imprisonment to find women had sustained the movement.
    Instead of weighing the odds in a prudent and rational manner, they followed the dictates of their hearts and have stood by me, emotionally speaking, to this day.'

    [Below: Never had a people been so solidly behind any leader. So loved was he, that it endures to this day. Except today that love is not only held by Germans, but by people everywhere.]

    Modern writers, opponents of National Socialism, even admit that Germany under National Socialism was a 'social revolution' (David Schoenbaum).
    Ralf Dahrendorf described the National Socialists as 'radical innovators'. Sebastian Haffner declared that the emancipation of women 'made great leaps forward' during the Third Reich.

    'I do not wish to live in a Germany without an Adolf Hitler. It would not be fit to live in for a true German.'

  • Eva Braun was married to Adolf Hitler on April 29, 1945 as bombs dropped above them and the red communist army prepared to wipe out the last stronghold of western civilization.
    As savvy and intelligent as she was beautiful, she also held a rare combination of traits like iron loyalty and courage in the face of death.

    'The Nurse of National Socialism'

    [Above: Eleonore Baur (September 7, 1885 – May 18, 1981)]

  • Eleonore Baur, better known as Sister Pia (named so because she served as a nurse), was a greatly beloved National Socialist 'Old Fighter'. She had the distinction of being the only woman to have participated in the Munich Beer Hall Putsch! During the ensuing chaos and death she was wounded and later received the coveted Blood Order award (being one of only two German women to receive the award!). The German newspaper Der Spiegel called her 'the nurse of the National Socialism'
    In 1920, Sister Pia met Adolf Hitler on a train in Munich, there her life changed forever. She was instrumental in helping to form the National Socialist German Workers' Party. She was arrested many times in their struggle for German freedom, but proved to be relentless and unstoppable.
    She gave many public speeches despite violent communist opposition and corrupt police. She was also active in various charitable events.
    During Germany's twelve years of freedom (1933-1945) Sister Pia remained close to Adolf Hitler. She would even accompany him on picnics and remained close to him until the end.
    She never stopped working for her people. In 1933 Heinrich Himmler appointed her Welfare Sister for the Waffen-SS at Dachau Concentration Camp.
    In 1934 she founded the National Socialist Order of Sisters (Schwesternschaft), of which she became its honorary chairwomen in 1937.
    During her service Sister Pia received many awards and medals for her tireless service to her people, among them were the Silver Medal for Bravery, the Silesian Eagle Order, and the Baltikum Cross.
    She remained a die hard loyal believer in Adolf Hitler and National Socialism.
    As bold as she was dedicated, she once stated 'There is only one Frederick the Great, there is only one Adolf Hitler, and there is only one Sister Pia.'

    -Adolf Hitler speaking to Hanna Reitsch in the final days.

    [Above: Hanna Reitsch (March 29, 1912 – August 24, 1979)]

  • Hanna Reitsch. was a committed National Socialist and friend to Adolf Hitler.
    Women were never more cherished and free than in the Third Reich, despite the lies and propaganda saying otherwise.
    Hanna was the first woman to fly a jet and a helicopter.
    She set over 40 records of endurance and altitude, some records still stand today!
    She was awarded the Iron Cross 1st Class and Luftwaffe Combined Pilots-Observation Badge in Gold with Diamonds.

  • 'I am not ashamed to say I believed in National Socialism. I still wear the Iron Cross with Diamonds Hitler gave me. But today in all Germany you can't find a single person who voted Adolf Hitler into power... many Germans feel guilty about the war. But they don't explain the real guilt we share-that we lost.'

    – Gertrud Scholtz-Klink

    [Above: Gertrud Scholtz-Klink (February 9, 1902 – March 24, 1999)]

  • Gertrud Scholtz-Klink was the leader of the National Socialist women's organization 'NS-Frauenschaft' from 1934-1945, was a die-hard supporter of National Socialism and Adolf Hitler her entire life, despite barbarous jail sentences for her beliefs after the war.

    She was interviewed in 1987 by Claudia Koonz who wrote:
    '…this was not an ex-Nazi. She remained as much a Nazi now as she had been in 1945 or 1933.'
    Scholtz-Klink remembered:
    ‘If you could have seen the women of Berlin defending their city with their lives against the Russians, then you would believe how deeply German women loved our Fuehrer.’

    In 1936 she gave a speech where she said:
    'The National Socialist movement sees the man and the woman as equal bearers of Germany’s future.
    It asks, however, for more than in the past: that each should first completely accomplish the tasks that are appropriate to his or her nature.'

    'I still count our meetings with Adolf Hitler as highlights in my life. For us he was a leader who dedicated, and sacrificed, himself for his people, one who eminently fulfilled his life's mission. He united his countrymen, of all classes and stations, from the aristocracy to the farmers and laborers, as had no man before him. His soldiers fought heroically to the last, particularly the men of the Waffen SS, not only Germans but from across Europe. Like my beloved brother, who died in combat in the ranks of the SS, and my husband, I think of Adolf Hitler as the first European.'
    – Florentine Rost van Tonningen

    [Above: Florentine Rost van Tonningen (November 14, 1914 – March 24, 2007).]

  • Florentine Rost van Tonningen was the wife of Meinoud Rost van Tonningen, the second leader of the National Socialist Movement in the Netherlands (NSB) and President of the National Bank. Very soon after the war, Meinoud died in the Scheveningen prison while awaiting trial. He allegedly jumped over the balustrade of a staircase. His widow always contended that her husband had been murdered. This truth was supported by eye-witness testimony from fellow prisoners. After the war Florentine remained a staunch National Socialist. Numerous times she was convicted of distributing NS literature and organizing National Socialist meetings. She suffered for her beliefs, her home was repeatedly searched by the police, always without result, and was more than once targeted by arsonists. So much for democracy. But these cowards couldn't break her iron spirit. She died a proud National Socialist.

    [Above: Kristina Söderbaum born Beata Margareta Kristina Söderbaum (September 5, 1912 - February 12, 2001).]

  • Kristina Söderbaum was a famous Swedish-born actress who made her mark in the German cinema.

    Kristina moved to Berlin after both of her parents died within a short period from one another. Once in Berlin, she enrolled in theater school. Thus beginning a long and intriguing acting career.

    Söderbaum and her husband, a film director named Veit Harlan, made films under the direction of Joseph Goebbels. These films proved to be their most important and enduring of their lives. Beginning in 1935 the pair made ten films together under him.

    Söderbaum had an idyllic beauty. She possessed a look of health and purity that was perfect for making films meant to teach people about the dangers that lurk within our societies. Her beauty was the perfect contrast to the ugliness of the real-life corruption depicted in some of the films. One such film was Jud Süss, a 1940 film in which Kristina Söderbaum starred. This film was wildly popular in Germany and attracted 20 million viewers!

    Unfortunately 'democracy' reared its ugly head when the National Socialists lost their long battle against the Allies. And with that 'democracy' came criminal charges against some of the leading cast members. The director, Kristina's husband, was even brought to trial and charged with 'crimes against humanity'! Apparently these 'freedom-loving' Allies don't agree with freedom of expression, or as a matter of fact, any freedoms unless approved by them.

    Reminds one of a modern event where the media and governments are up in arms over some people being murdered for drawing comic images of the prophet of Islam. In this situation they declared they have the freedom to insult, degrade or say anything they wish about anybody. Then why were film stars arrested and ruined after WWII? Why was Julius Streicher hung for his comics which the Jews found offensive?

    Double standards are everywhere in the sick world we live.

    [Above: Francoise Dior (April 7, 1932 – January 20, 1993).]

  • Francoise Dior grew up in France during the Nazi occupation. She has said that her 'sweetest memory' as a child was a compliment from an SS man who said, 'What a beautiful little Aryan girl.' She was also a wealthy heiress (she was the niece of famous French fashion designer Christian Dior) who funded post-war National Socialist movements, including the 'World Union of National Socialists'. She became romantically involved with two British greats of National Socialism, John Tyndall and Colin Jordan, marrying the latter. Controversy still surrounds Francoise Dior to this day, being that she was the niece of French fashion designer Christian Dior. During her extremely colorful life she was friends with many famous National Socialists, including Savitri Devi. In 1966 she was imprisoned in Nice for four months for posting swastika leaflets on the walls of the British embassy. In April of 1967 she was also arrested in Britain and sent to Holloway prison after being charged with arson against London synagogues in 1965.

    [Above: Herbert John Burgman arrives at Bolling Field to face treason charges.]

  • Herbert John Burgman (April 17, 1894 - December 16, 1953) was an American who lived in Germany during WW2. He saw firsthand the truths and benefits of National Socialism and also the lies the Allies spread about it. He became a broadcaster to try to shed some light on the subject to his fellow Americans.

    Burgman was born in Minnesota and as a young man he served in the U.S. Army from 1918-1920. He was stationed in Germany in the American zone in the Occupation of the Rhineland.

    In 1921 he became a clerk and economic statistician for the State Department in the U.S. embassy in Berlin. He married Johanna Karhl, a German, in 1924 and had a son in 1925. When the Allies forced war upon Germany in 1939 he chose to stay in Germany instead of returning to the U.S. with the rest of the embassy staff.

    As the war raged on Burgman broadcast under the name 'Joe Scanlon' for 'Radio Debunk', the 'Voice of All Free America'.
    He tried to show Americans that it was Roosevelt and 'his Jewish and communistic pals', who wanted war. Burgman used his voice to fight a desperate battle to awaken Americans to the truth.

    Burgman was at his home in Rumpenheim, Frankfurt when he was arrested in November of 1945. He was temporarily released in 1946 on the condition that he reported in regularly to the U.S. Military Police for whom he then worked as an interpreter. But his semi-freedom didn't last long. By order of the Justice Department Burgman was rearrested on November 22, 1948 and was sent back to the U.S on February 4, 1949 for trial.

    Burgman was originally arraigned on 69 counts of treason but it was reduced down to 20 counts. During the trial he suffered a heart attack and had to go to the trial in a wheelchair. He was convicted of 13 acts of treason on November 15, 1949 and was sentenced to 6-20 years.

    Death interrupted Burgman's punishment for trying to keep America out of a sensless war, he died a few years later on December 16, 1953.
