World War Two

               World War Two Film Clips

1943: The Germans Try to Find a Way Out... (Confidential Magazine, 1958)

George F. Earle, a former Democratic Governor of Pennsylvania, recalled his days in the White House during W.W. II when a secret German delegation came around wishing to bring an end to the war. Roosevelt rejected the conditions and Earle openly chastised him for it.


Why France Fell (Omnibooks Digest, 1942)

Writing from France for the Hearst papers in 1940, H.R. Knickerbocker (1898 1949) had witnessed the total collapse of the French Army.
His 1941 book, Is Tomorrow Hitler's, Knickerbocker clearly outlined his reasoning as to why Nazi Germany was able to overwhelm the French and turn their withdraw into a route. In the attached seven pages the author answered the question "Why did France fall?":

"Because the French people were hypnotized by their low birth rate; because their Maginot Line had imprisoned their army; because they had no Churchill to inspire and lead them ... their comparative lack of weapons would not have mattered... if they had had the spirit to win they could have held the Germans until the deficiency could be made up."

"Tanks cannot cross properly defended rivers, and there were several sets of rivers which the French could have held if they chose: the Meuse, the Somme and the Oise, the Aisne, the Marne, the Seine, and finally the Loire, but they held not at all at any of these natural barriers. At most of these rivers I was present during the retreat, and it astonished all of us to visit a French position along a river one day and observe how strong it was, and how difficult it would be to take, and then the next day to learn the Germans had taken it within a few hours of our departure."


How the US Helped the Fascists Before Entering the War (Coronet Magazine, 1941)

Although our friends in Asia, Europe and Canada had been fighting the Axis for at least a year and a half, American corporations continued to trade with the fascists all the way up until the U.S. declaration of war. This 1941 article, published seven months prior to that day, goes into some detail on the matter; although corporations are not named, it is pretty easy to identify them by their products.

"One reason why America today is short of ships to fill Britain's desperate needs is [due to] the fact that for six years or more, Japan and her scrap agents bought almost every American cargo vessel placed on the auction blocks, using them for scrap to feed the blazxing steel mills of Nipon."

"What you may not know is that last year we sold Japan more goods than any other country except Britain, Canada and France, and we bought more goods from her than than from any country of the world except Canada. The plain fact is that the United States today is the foundation stone of totalitarian Japan's economy."

This explains why the people who visit the Chiang Kai-Schek memorial in Taipei come away believing that the only involvement that the United States played throughout W.W. II was the selling of gas to Imperial Japan...


The Scared Infantry (Regiment of the Century, 1945)

"We were men on a chess board being pushed around by people we never saw, by orders we never read, going to places we didn't know the names of, not knowing where the front was... praying that the 'old man' knew what he was doing".

"Was it the cold, the fear, the letterless days, the dark, the not knowing where or when or was it all of these? ...Whatever it was, wherever and whenever we were scared because we were strictly on our own. Except for the few basic things that we learned in the States, like blackout and water discipline, all this was new and different, the situations never seemed to apply..."

The passage above was found in a year book that told the tale of the 397th (U.S.) Infantry Regiment, of the 100th Division. The 100th Division was on the German's tale all the way to Berlin.
