    Oh yes, Vassili, try to make all the points you want to make in one post rather than posting four consecutive and quite clearly related ones, quoting yourself.

    You just did it again.

    It's really very simple, all you have to do is make it clear that you're adressing a different person or subject. This can be done by dividing your post into paragraphs, by naming the person you are replying to, or by quoting that person. It is perfectly easy to quote several people in one post, just use the Quote-Unquote buttons above the text box.

    roel, don't be so hard on him. nobody his perect. his imperfection is that he just loves to qoute :lol:

    no vassili, you do have a qouting problem. you even qoute post that only stand one or two posts above you. it's okay that you qoute but not when you do it every time. try to look out for that :)

    anyway, another big mistake of hitler: "i'll let all my commanders have there own agenda. in that case, they don't work together."
    point is: with a little bit of coöperation, they could for example use the Kriegsmarine to take murmansk in a amfibious landing.

    Hitler, like Stalin, believed strongly that if all subordinate institutions that were at roughly the same level, were allowed to compete, they would all get better results individually, which would obviously make for a better overall result in the end. In war this doctrine is completely and utterly flawed - as a concept it belongs in economics. Hitler also applied it to the Nazi party vs the German state, by the way.

    In theory it also prevents any group banding together to conspire against you...

    He didn't make any mistakes.All of his moves are products of his political doctrine.That kind of thinkig didn't allow any kind of withdraw until it became an ultimate.His generals didn't have free hands to make moves freely.

    My English isn't so good.

    Your English is fine. :)

    Surely then that means that his political doctrine was a mistake?

    And how about 'mistakes' like declaring war on the USA, or not finishing off Britain, etc etc.

    few know this but at the last days of his lives, hitler changed his ideology
    in mein kampf he says that the superior rase will always win in war since he is superiour
    when the russians were almost at berlin hitler stated that the slaves were superiour to the arian race. since war was the ultimat clash between races and only the superiour could win.
    is this a small sign that he knew that the war was over? anyway, probably his last minute of being normal. after that he went crazy (moving unexisted units, keep on fighting,...)

    The race you're talking about are the Slavs.

    I would say Hitler had long gone crazy in the days when he said the above; it didn't require him to change his ideology at all. In the theory of Social Darwinism, human history consists of the struggle of peoples or races for domination, and only the fittest can survive. This was a part of Nazi ideology but there it was combined with fervent nationalism to produce the idea that Germany was the fittest nation. However as the end of WW2 drew closer this turned out not to be the case; Germany was defeated, most of the fighting having been done by the Russians. Therefore in Hitler's fixed mindset the Slavs must automatically be the fittest race that Social Darwinism and his own ideology were all about.

    Slavs are - and (apparently) the word 'slave' is derived from 'Slav', thanks to the large numbers of slavs used as slaves in western europe...

    slav was a term used in western europe used to denominate non-christian
    from the eastern boundary ,
    the yearly meeting of knights in prussian marienburg to "war against the
    infidels " in the name of the faith and making a buck , got the easten people
    massively pissed off .
    they saw the west as not much better than the mongols , who at least were
    a plague but did not pretent to be good .
    the insistance of the popes to teach religion to the eastern chuches did not
    help at all :roll:

    Fought USA partly because he was obliged to. Also I believe he thought he could win against the racially impure Americans. I think we touched about this in another topic.

    unless I'm mistaken , and mindful of the U.S. Navy very pro-british posture
    in the north atlantic ,
    it is germany who declared war on the U.S.A. , Churchill and stalin must have been tickled pink by such suicidal hubris as roosevelt might have had some trouble to get congress on side for a war ( again ! ) in europe

    :) :) :) :) :) :)
