Germany rejects militarism

<— Prev    |    Next —>

After all the cheering had died-down following the 1945 German surrender, Western diplomats found themselves having to assemble a coalition of nations willing to contain Soviet expansion throughout Europe. A COLLIER'S journalist wandered among the rubble of West Germany and found that a great number of draft-age men simply replied "nein" when asked if they would be willing to fight alongside the Americans, French and British. A wise old English spy opined:

"Remember that Germany is a convalescent country...These people have lost two world wars in a generation. The last one cost them nearly 3,000,000 dead and another 1,000,000 or so still missing, to say nothing of some 4,000,000 wounded. They just don't want to take a chance of being on the losing side again."

The West Germans joined NATO in 1955.
