a long war demands enormous resources; adequate logistics enables victories.So the people who made the food that Orville and Wilbour Wright were eating... they are the real inventers of heavier than air flight... right?
The Germans run out of supplies as their lines were stretched in 1941, halting their advance; Ks the Mongols' ponies would have nothing to eat if the climate was less rainy during their conquests.
it shows they were then more anti-Stalin than anti-Hitler. prior & post WWII history showed that the Ango-Saxons r Russia/USSR enemies; their 4 year alliance with it was a temporary. American & Btitish banks gave credits so the Nazis could build up their mil. & be well armed to defeat the Bolsheviks instead of taking over France & other states in W. Europe. But Hitler refused to dance to their tunes.Stalin approached the British and the British told them to talk to the poles. ..What evidence?
I doubt they would want to occupy the S. France, as this would create a future war between them. The allies benefited from Spain staying neutral more than they would benefit if she took their side. Bringing Italy was more important to the Brits & US; after the war, Franco kept the Communists out & later Spain joined NATO.They could offer large parts of France to Spain in return for staying neutral and allowing the western allies invade occupied France from their territory.
it developed into a trap; I doubt the Soviets knew German plans for 1942 in advance.Stalingrad wasn't an epic battle, it was a well laid trap...
