He casts Germany as being a last bastion against the evils of the Jewish Bolshevik run Communist Russia and without her forming a strong bulwark, the red terror would swarm throughout Europe, in a fatal strike against Western civilization. The book does not solely deal with World War 2 but goes right back to before the Bolshevik revolution and carefully illustrates that this murderous event was Jewish-run entirely out of proportion to their numbers in the Russian population.
Chronologically he gives accounts of WW1, Weimar Germany and WW2, with the focus very much on this seldom-heard other side of events from the German perspective. Almost every claim is backed up with hard evidence.
A minor criticism would be that Bradberry's style of writing is not the most fluid and can on occasion seem a little repetitive, but it is the content of the text itself and not the style in which it is written which is important here.
Highly recommended to a student of history who senses that much is missing from the tale they have long been told. Prepare to have your eyes opened.

However, I will say that to picture every German during World War 2 as an outright Nazi is a bit silly. Don't forget these were people living under Fascism and doing their best to deal with an authoritarian regime, and that includes their military.

Eisenhower was a great fighter and leader in his own right, but I question the soundness of his plan to cause a food shortage of the regular civilian population by blockade.

A true eye opener. To get another prospective on history, after only hearing the victors side. A lot of people will not believe this. Too seasoned to the lying press and propaganda. Anybody with an interest in the truth should read this book Good read for those who are open minded and not influenced by the mass media, or history books written by victors.

Very interesting how the Germans have been beat up by the Zionist PR machine. Germany did not start WW 1 and was punished so severely that they ended up with Hitler to save them from economic ruin and a communist takeover by Communist i.
Jewish Zionist. May 23, Guido rated it it was amazing. The author makes quite a remarkable point: We have been told a big lie, inspired by Germany's enemies. Especially the part about the Holocaust may provoke the most intense dispute. Many will therefore discard this book almost at face value.
I didn't. Although the author makes some mistakes here and there, in general he is making a point that cannot be easily swept away. He is not t The author makes quite a remarkable point: He is not the only one disputing the conventional narrative about the Holocaust, which is not the same as denying that anything violent against Jews and others ever happened.
It is about refuting many details that don't seem to match up with each other.
It's about revisionism, not mere denial as such, a straw man argument that is often used against revisionists to have a quick and easy point against them. The conventional narrative is not just about the prosecution of mainly Jews, but simultaneously about ignoring the fate of so many Germans, suffering severe maltreatment, enslavement and murder at the end of the war, as well as during the war while being bombed extensively.
Revisionists therefore point towards that underexposed part of history too, which acts as one of the pillars of their perspective. The official version of history is trying to distract from the suffering of the Germans by stressing the Holocaust myth. The loss of large parts of their country, the almost complete annihilation, the occupation and destruction by the Soviet Union, the bombing raids, the enslavement, the ethnic cleansing from Czechia and Poland and the brutal murders that took place then, it all may be covered up by presenting the Holocaust.
And of course, the soviets had an ax to grind.
They were more than just mildly motivated to manufacture an abundance of tales to tell whether true or not feeding the Nuremberg Trials with anything that could incriminate the Germans. And the western Allies had not much choice than to comply. They had engaged with Stalin and his oppressive, murderous regime. They also waited for the still imprisoned GI's to be released by the same Stalin.
Shortly after the war, the US and Great-Britain sent many Russians even people that weren't really Russian, but were perceived as such into the hands of Stalin, knowing they would end up dead, or at least sent into Siberian camps, which wasn't that much better than being killed immediately. More than enough reasons for the western Allies to play along with the Holocaust claims. A common enemy and villain: That made things so much easier to straighten up the narrative.
Is the author just an anti-Semitic neo-nazi, or someone with genuine arguments against a myth that is simply too powerful and too well rooted in society to be challenged without retribution and ostracism?

This is important because each war led to the next. I had never really studied the penalties and restrictions imposed by the Versailles Treaty after WWI and how that affected Germany. That puts WWII in a completely different context I was already familiar with the thesis of this book, yet I was still pleasantly surprised by how much I learned.
That puts WWII in a completely different context.
I also had not studied the Red Terror that took place in Russia or how that affected the German psyche. One thing I was aware of: This is the subject of Kurt Vonnegut's novel Slaughterhouse Five.
Vonnegut was one of the Allied soldiers who for weeks helped dispose of corpses in Dresden. Bradberry covers the firebombing of Dresden in detail, providing the context needed to understand this event for what it was: This book relentlessly peels back the varnish on modern mainstream WWII history by using numerous sources, including newspapers published during the time of the events being written about.
He also quotes many of the primary actors in WWII, using text from their speeches and diaries. In spite of a handful of minor typos sprinkled throughout, this is a very well-constructed book from start to finish.
The case Bradberry makes is airtight. Any serious student of history should read this book. Although I must warn you that some of the firsthand descriptions of what was done to victims is graphic and disturbing. I have a pretty high tolerance for that sort of thing, and yet after reading the descriptions in Chapter 22, I was in a bit of a funk for a few hours.
Jan 02, Josh rated it really liked it. The arguments were well constructed. I applaud Mr. Bradberry for his bravery in speaking out on such a controversial topic. There were some spelling and formatting errors that can be overlooked because this book was independently published. One thing I would have wanted to know more about was Hitler's personal faith as a Catholic because the majority of media presents him as an esotericist or atheist , and about the religious policies of the Third Reich because, again, media presents it as wid The arguments were well constructed.
One thing I would have wanted to know more about was Hitler's personal faith as a Catholic because the majority of media presents him as an esotericist or atheist , and about the religious policies of the Third Reich because, again, media presents it as widely atheist or dabbling in paganism.
Overall, even if you disagree with the precepts of the book, it is an important read because it offers the history of the World Wars from a new perspective and contains information that can't be found in many other places, backed up by hard evidence in the form of firsthand accounts, quotes, and photographs. I guarantee even the most well-read World War scholars will learn something through this book they did not know before.
The other side It seems that there could be another side to the story of The world wars. This book gives the the others sides views. I can't determine weather it is all true but I can't determine what we hear every day in America is true either. Very interesting a lot of facts.
Jan 21, ZyklonBen rated it really liked it Shelves: Very informative book. Definitely a must read. The reason why I docked a single star was that the book was filled with many typos and a few grammatical errors. It may have been just the edition I was reading, but the author should have at least gotten someone to proofread his work for spelling and grammatical errors before he published it. If you can ignore the typos, you'll learn something from this book.
Read this book They were only made out to be different by the relentless hate propaganda directed against them. Germany suffered more than any other country by far as a result of World War II. Some of her largest cities and towns were completely destroyed by the Allied bombing campaign and perhaps as many as 20 million Germans lost their lives as a result of the war.
Yet, no one wants to hear their tales of suffering, and no sympathy has been allowed the defeated and disgraced Germans. The anti- German propaganda has cultivated the general feeling that they got what they deserved. Because they were the losers of both World Wars, they were never permitted to present their case before the world court, nor to tell their side of the story through any medium.
The winners of wars, after all, write the history books. Neither did the true story of what happened during the war come out in the Nuremberg Trials. The Nuremberg Trials were nothing more than Soviet style show trials which violated every standard of traditional British and American justice. The entire Nuremberg circus was a sham and a travesty. The anti-German propaganda, used to create the climate of hatred that made the massive destruction and the mass slaughter of German civilians possible, continued relentlessly long after the war was over when it would seem natural for sober minded historians to begin to moderate their extreme views about Germany.
The fantastic atrocity stories continue even today. One needs only to tune in to the History Channel to see them repeated again and again. In contrast, World War I was not long over before the atrocity stories attributed to the Germans during that war were exposed as the deliberate lies they were.
Responsible men conducted thorough investigations and found that none of it was true.
All the lurid stories were deliberately fabricated to win British public support for the war against Germany and also to bring America into the war. Continue reading. Balder Ex-Libris Review of books rare and missing.
