  1. I'm not impressed with wehrmacht "teaming" up with the US Army. They gave their oath to Hitler in 1933 and conquered Europe for Hitler generally without question and even participated in wholesale extermination. Although some Heer officers like von Tretchkow and von Witzleben had been against the Nazis almost from the very beginning all the way back to 1934, they were few and far between and they could never organize a large scale resistance against Hitler and their assassination attempts were amateurish at best. This so-called "teaming up" with the US Army at Castle Itter is more akin to rats abandoning a sinking ship.

  2. Tein Ilta-Sanomien/ -lehteen uutisvinkin lähestyvän 75-muistopäivän vuoksi. 5.5.1945. IS on ottanut kantaa moniin muihin WW2 aiheisiin, jäämme odottamaan.
