Message Subject The German Soldier of WWII: history's most formidable fighting force
Poster Handle Educated Redneck

"At the beginning of World War I, Britain set up a blockade designed, according to one of its architects, Winston Churchill, to "starve the whole population of Germany - men, women and children, old and young, wounded and sound - into submission."

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19812288

Yes, Germany lost 2 world wars due to the British blockade. Germany couldn't challenge the Royal Navy... but they did use submarine warfare to attempt to starve Britain and sunk 5,000 merchant ships during WWI. But the British blockade proved more effective. Allied troops never invaded Germany during WWI... Germany still had to surrender because of shortages of everything from food to raw materials to manpower.

Still what does that have to do with Hitler starting WWII more than 20 years later at a time when Churchill was not in power?

I have spoken with people who lived in Germany and surrounding countries in the 1930's-40's. You simply do NOT know the facts. Hitler did not want war nor did he start it. bolshshits invaded germany thru poland and several time butchering innocent people in villages. They war drawing hitler into war. Once hitler went into poland to defend his people, newspapers around the world state the hitler invades poland to being world conquest. All bullshit.

What in the hell are you talking about???

At the time Germany invaded Poland, Germany and the Soviet Union had a treaty, the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact. Germany and the Soviet Union through foreign ministers Molotov and Ribbentrop worked out the division of Poland and the rest of Eastern Europe before the first shot was fired.
