Muscles for the Third Reich

Limited resources


In the book “The Price of Destruction. The Creation and Destruction of the Nazi Economy ”Adam Tuz collected and systematized a unique material that makes you take a fresh look at history World War II. The Hitlerite project of colonization and forced modernization turned out to be utopian in many respects for the banal reason of lack of calories and muscular strength.


Muscles for the Third Reich


So, the middle of 1941 year. 22 June, Hitler writes an encouraging letter to his idol Mussolini:
«
Be that as it may, Duce, our situation as a result of this step cannot worsen; it can only improve. ”


However, by September it became clear that the German army could not continue to attack just as lightning fast. And this was the main idea of ​​the Barbarossa plan - with swift strikes not to give the Red Army time to regroup and replenish supplies. The victorious reports of the Wehrmacht generals in the first months gave way to doubts about the possibility of organizing new offensives by the forces of exhausted troops. And even a clear underestimation of the enemy forces made us think about the advisability of an attack on the east. Halder wrote:
“By the beginning of the war, we had against ourselves about 200 enemy divisions. Now we already have 360 Russian divisions. These divisions, of course, are not so armed and not as equipped as ours, and their command is tactically weaker than ours, but be that as it may, these divisions are. And if we break up a dozen such divisions, the Russians will form a new dozen. ”


Halder, of course, was modest in his description of the enemy and forgot to focus on the high quality of the Russian weapons, which the Germans had not previously encountered in any theater of war. Be that as it may, it is from this moment that the main tragedy of Nazi Germany begins, devoid of sufficient territories and natural resources for waging war. And with that, and with the other the Germans turned, as it turned out, very freely.



Already at the beginning of September 1941 in Germany, they felt the cold breath of a distant war. Reichsbank released a report in which it noted the increase in inflationary pressure on the market. The shelves in the stores were empty, the consumer basket was shrinking, the money supply for the short period increased by 10%, and the mass of buyers rushed to the black market. Barter unprecedented since the post-war era has appeared. They decided to withdraw the excess weight of money by raising taxes, and since the summer of 1941, the rate for legal entities has been raised by 10%, and in January 1942 by another 5%. The situation in the energy market was not in the best way. Coal mining in Germany by the beginning of the summer of 1941 did not cover government spending. Steelworkers complained that the shortage of coal is about 15%, and in the future it can reach a quarter of the needs of the industry. Moreover, by the end of the 1941 year, interruptions in the supply of electricity and heat could be expected - coal hunger was also being selected for the infrastructure of settlements. Keitel saved the situation when he forced the Wehrmacht to abandon previously approved weapons programs from August 41. That is, the Germans have not yet failed near Moscow, and the army already needed to squeeze their appetites. The Luftwaffe was the most fortunate in this story - they just refused to increase the number of aircraft fleets, but the ground forces could suffer more seriously. Already from October 25 to 1941, steel supply for the Wehrmacht decreased to prewar 173 thousand tons. Hitler saved the situation literally two days later by canceling all restrictions on purchases for the ground forces. The reason for this situation was not only a shortage of energy resources, but also an acute shortage of labor. Germany needed a manpower - by the end of the third year of World War II, in the country there were practically no male population in the 20-30 age group in the manufacturing sector. Losses at the front now had to be replaced by older workers of military enterprises - in the following year several hundred thousand men went to the army, which was very difficult to replace. At the same time, there was no need to count on help from the female population - it already accounted for 34% of the workforce, which was the highest value among Western countries. And German industry required millions of workers ...

Zeal of Zaukel


27 February 1942 year, the commissioner general for the workforce in the Third Reich was the hardened uncouth Nazi Fritz Sauckel, who joined the party back in 1923 year. Looking ahead, I’ll say that this position became fatal for Sauckel - in 1946 he was hanged in Nuremberg for crimes against humanity. It is noteworthy that before the defeat near Moscow, “newcomers” human resources worked mainly in agriculture and amounted to only 8,4% of the workforce. When the Moscow Region winter, tragic for the Germans, happened, the industrialists pulled a good part of the blanket over themselves. Sauckel, in accordance with requests, mobilized almost three million people from the beginning of the 1942 to June 1943 for work in Germany. Most of them, naturally, were young men and women from 12 to 25 years. By 1944, the Sauckel’s office drove into the slave labor 7 907 000 people, which amounted to one fifth of the labor resources of the Third Reich. That is, in two years, the labor ombudsman raised the share of foreigners in the country's constantly needing economy by more than two times. Adam Tuz cites the words of Secretary of State Milch about the role of “ostarbeiters” in production, which are characteristic in this connection:
“Ju-87“ Stucka ”at 80% is produced by Russians.”


In military factories, the share of slave labor was even greater - about 34%.



Paradoxically, the Germans neglected the potential of the occupied territories. With an acute shortage of labor at the beginning of the war, they allowed themselves to starve hundreds of thousands of unfortunate captured Red Army soldiers. And even when the Barbarossa crisis was gaining momentum, prisoners of war taken to Germany continued to exist in terrible conditions. Civil workers, driven out (or enticed by deceit) from all over the occupied territories, were also kept in inhuman conditions throughout the war. The Gestapo barely managed to catch the fugitives from the terrible conditions of the Ruhr industrial conglomerate. At first, Sauckel was able to replenish the decline as a result of mortality with new supplies from the East, but this did not work everywhere. Industrialists often complained:
“Because of hunger, up to ten percent of unskilled workers can die, which can be replaced within a couple of days with new ones, but what to do with a specialist engaged in complex production?”


At the same time, many workers had to be taken back to their homeland in order to avoid epidemics, and also because of the negative reaction of the native Germans. Eyewitnesses wrote about such "death trains":
“The returning train was carrying dead passengers. Women traveling on this train gave birth on the way to children who were thrown out of the open window on the go. In the same carriage there were people with tuberculosis and sexually transmitted diseases. “The dying lay in freight cars, where there was not even straw, and one of the dead was thrown into the embankment.”


The Germans did not try to hide the facts of such an inhuman attitude towards people from the civilian population - stinking echelons with dying people often stood on train sidings. As a result, information about all the "charms" of work on the Third Reich reached the eastern lands, and since the fall of 1942, all workforce has now been recruited exclusively by force.




Fritz Sauckel


Economic considerations were clearly at the peak of ideology in the situation of genocide of the Jewish population of Europe. It was obvious that the total destruction of a vast human resource would leave the country's industry without workers. In total, the Germans burned crematoria in the furnaces, starved to death in the ghetto and simply shot at least 2,5 million Jews. This despite the fact that Sauckel was able to force to drive into slave labor for the entire war, only three times more! Adam Tuz calculated that after the crisis 1942 year, the Germans as a result of their atrocities lost a total of about 7 million people - Jews and captured Red Army soldiers, and “Ostarbeiters” who died from unbearable conditions, are here.

Generated Nutrition


One of the factors of high mortality among foreign workers in labor camps was a banal food shortage. Puzzling how to provide the necessary level of labor productivity with invariably meager nutrition, the bosses of the industrial complex came up with the idea of ​​"nutrition through production." In fact, in this case, fats, proteins and carbohydrates were simply redistributed between the workers. If he fulfilled the daily norm, then he received a normal ration, but if not, then he will have to share it with someone who has exceeded the norm. So natural selection worked in the bestial Nazi grin. When the situation on the labor front became completely unbearable for the Germans, at the end of 1944, this logic of food distribution depending on the rate of production became widespread.



Another, much more bloodthirsty tradition is the practice of destruction through hard work. Beginning in Auschwitz, prisoners were brutally exploited in concentration camps, while the seas were starving and totally unsanitary. In addition to the infamous IG Farbenindustrie, concentration camps were not averse to using Siemens, Daimler-Benz, BMW, Steyr Daimler Puch, Heinkel and Messerschmitt. In total, up to 5% of all the needs of the military economy in labor force were provided by prisoners of concentration camps. I must say that the Germans in euphoria even suspended the creation of new death camps, in which people did not live, but were destroyed on the first day of arrival. By 1942, the Nazis overdid it a bit, the tactics of destruction by labor gained too much speed - it was dying more than the SS managed to replenish. The response was an improved medical supply, a bonus system with tobacco and extra rations.



If you look at a retrospective of the attitude of the Germans towards the labor force during World War II, it turns out that from the very beginning there was a kind of disregard for foreign workers. The Holocaust machine worked in full swing, knocking out millions of potential workers from the economy, and hundreds of thousands were dying from overwork. But with the deteriorating situation on the fronts towards the end of the war, the Germans naturally paid special attention to the workers involved. And they even managed to improve productivity in various ways - among French workers it reached 80% of the German level, and among Russian prisoners of war, even in the best of times, it did not exceed 50%. And by 1944, the Germans had to seriously limit the Moloch of the Jewish genocide. In March, the last major rally to exterminate the Jews of Hungary was held. However, the whole war of the Germans was simply torn by the contradiction between hatred of Jews with Slavs and the economic feasibility of using slave labor. And a significant role in this was played by the battle for calories in the Third Reich.

    The author missed the replacement of natural products with surrogates, which greatly exacerbated the situation. Rutabaga and lentils are not always useful, but if you eat only them, complications are inevitable. Sugar instead of sugar, margarine, etc. And the proverb "If God wants to punish, then deprives him of reason" was not in vain invented.

        Industrial potential 3 Reich at the beginning of the war 14% of world GDP.
        Industrial potential of the USSR 16% of world GDP
        US Industrial Potential 40% of GDP
        Britain Industrial Potential 8%

        In our USSR, not a single day of the 2nd World War was produced tanks less than in Germany in pieces, the same thing in airplanes, even with all the transfers and evacuations of factories.

        What Germany lacked from the main thing --- the Fuhrer’s brains with his crazy ideas.
        Reliance on pure Aryans in practice meant a commonplace thing, the total number of Aryans in the world was as much as 92 million at the beginning of the war, which was about 15–20 million draft troops for the entire world war. This draft potential was stupidly not enough by 1943 to keep the army at 5,5 million. So all the losses of the great Reich are still in the Kampf Mine.

      The author forgot that Germany had France under her feet, which supplied tanks, cars and aircraft engines. Czechoslovakia, which supplied tanks, guns, self-propelled guns, hand weapons, explosives. And also Germany worked in Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia, Denmark, Holland, Norway, added them Spain, and Portugal, Sweden and America through Portugal rubber and chemicals. South America sent rubber and stuff.

    In the history of the War, one always had to deal with the pedantic work of the German rear: confiscation of "surplus food", teams to collect weapons, restored collective farms, rations for workers, etc. ... Either Mr. Tuz, or the author himself clearly exaggerated the mistakes of the Germans in mobilizing resources ... Jews and prisoners of the Red Army were destroyed simply because of their danger. And the role of the economy in the Victory was secondary in comparison with the front. By 1944, the German army was inundated with expensive and sophisticated equipment. And in comparison with Leningrad, she ate quite satisfactorily. But millions of those killed cannot be resurrected or replaced by "Gaster".
    The article is clearly strongly ideologized and questionable in its conclusions.

For example, the needs of gunpowder and explosives were 30% overlapped (excluding the supply of ammunition for equipment), food, in terms of calories rations of the Red Army - 10 million days, high-octane gasoline 100%, etc.

            Of course cars, almost a hundred percent and tires. But do not forget that even more from the Americans received the Germans. If you remember, give both of them and let them kill each other as much as possible. You also need to remember that neither tanks, nor planes, nor even a rifle itself aims and does not kill itself. Everyone needs a person. Here is what in the USSR they managed, besides enterprises, to teach people to fight, and DOSAAF and other organizations taught them before the war, this is a plus. The Germans also began to teach the population a new way of war, but despite the high level of education in schools, the Germans did not have what the people of the USSR had - to defend their homeland.

                In 2000, the Americans extended their secrecy to documents which banks cooperated with the Germans until 2050. When the chief archivist was asked why, he answered, as if with humor, that the government did not want Jewish pogroms to begin in the States. You apparently did not look at the beginning of the two thousandth year summarizing the two thousand years. They asked such questions and there were answers that made me think. In addition, you did not read the volume of the Nuremberg Tribunal, especially Goering’s interrogations during the trial. There he was not allowed to speak. And when he remembered the USA, he was turned out of the hall by force. Prosecutor, nearly died of anger.

                    So you don’t understand right away. You know about the Gulf Stream. So the American canneries took three liter cans, filled with gold, rolled up, and threw it into this course. And German submarines caught these banks with fishing rods and sent them to the Reichsbank in order to buy slaves and oxen in the conquered countries. The biggest secret is how many cans the sharks swallowed, how many were stolen and why the Russians did not send the cans to the cans. By the way, many cans died in the Reichsbank, for the reason that the seals were left-handed, that is, from right to left. They disappeared forever and can be opened in 2050, when the thread gets wet. In general, it was necessary to study this since childhood nurseries.

                        We are talking about the corruption of the Western elite - it has always been like that, which is why their help, if not direct, to Hitler during the Second World War is not surprising.

Acheson, the Dulles brothers, James Forrestal - these are just some of the characters from this clan of American politicians who indulged in ties with the Nazi business.

But the USA, as a state, did not trade with Germany after the declaration of war. Give a link, which Lend-Lease article provided for this and how many $ million were allocated for this.

            The amount of food was cosmic, more than all Lend-Lease food supplies.

              Millions of horses from Mongolia in 1941

              In March, 1942, the Mongolian authorities adopted a decree on the purchase of horses at specially set state prices.
              From June 1941 to the end of 1945, the USSR imported from Mongolia .... 0,4 million horses
              well, it does not converge in any way, neither in quantity nor in dates. In addition, in the large-scale offensives of the Red Army in 1944, trucks were much more valuable than horses because of the speed and volume of cargo transported, after all, World War II was a "war of engines".
              Lend-Lease food supplies were of paramount importance for the Soviet Union in general and for the Red Army in particular (1 tons were delivered from the USA alone)
              Almost 500 thousand tons of meat were delivered from Mongolia as equally valuable help to the warring USSR.
              and here we must take into account that this meat from Mongolia was supplied in live weight, and if you remove horns, hooves and offal from this weight, and even boil it to the state of American stew, then this weight will decrease by a factor of three (see the norms of meat boiling)
              And most importantly:
              The Soviet Union paid Mongolia throughout the war food and industrial goods.
              The United States did not require payment for land lease during the war. So before you bring any facts, at least you look at Wikipedia, at least look and think a little.

              I forgot about gasoline, firstly, the B-100 was not produced in the USSR from the word at all, the maximum of the B-78 and was delivered by US Lend-Lease. Secondly, the B-78 was no longer high-octane gasoline, but it was also produced using exclusively octane-increasing additives supplied from the USA, so it was produced in the USSR, but from raw materials supplied under Lend-Lease

                Where does such a religion come from?
                There are several books on the history of the development of petrochemistry in the USSR. Their data are confirmed by the results of construction following the results of five-year plans.
                I indicated to you the places where B-100 gasoline was produced. In these cities, technological units of cat. cracking, reforming and other important technological units for the production of high-octane gasoline. There were 6 more installations, but much less power, and provided less qualified personnel. Low-octane gasoline B-70 was actually the raw material for these plants. In 1941, only the isomerization units were absent in the USSR, which made it possible to obtain stable grades of gasoline with an octane rating of more than 120. None of the units for deep oil refining were captured by the Germans. The octane limit for industrial lots of commodity quantities was around 100.
                Reforming, catalytic cracking and oil refining units have been operating since 1936.
                The operation of the plants depended on the extraction and processing of platinum and vanadium.
                Exports of platinum from the USSR in 1941-1946 allowed a sharp increase in the production of high-octane fuel in the United States to the detriment of domestic plants. In the USSR, the energy balance for their work dipped and the size of production really fell until 1943.

                  It should be noted that in the prewar period, the Soviet government nevertheless took certain measures to expand sectoral geography and create new industries for the production of high-quality motor fuels. According to the draft plan for the development of the national economy for 1941, the increase in cracking capacities was to be 600 thousand tons, for isooctane plants - 87 thousand tons, for alkyl-gasoline plants - 65 thousand tons. It was planned to complete the construction of the third and fourth lines of the Ufa refinery, the second and third - the Moscow refinery, the second - the Kherson refinery, as well as the construction of oil refineries in Syzran, Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Voronezh, Molotov, Armavir, Krasnovodsk and Buguruslan. It was also planned to create new units for thermal reforming and sulfate alkylation in Baku and Grozny.Also, the construction plan for the production of cracking equipment in Stalingrad was included in the capital construction plan for 1941 [14].
                  In the same period, in Leningrad, the installation of a pilot plant for testing catalytic cracking technology was started, and in the Yaroslavl region at the Konstantinovsky plant named after D. I. Mendeleev began the construction of a pilot plant for the vapor-phase oxidative cracking process.

                  and even later, during the Second World War, there was no talk about domestic 100-octane gasoline:
                  On July 15, 1942, at a meeting of the State Defense Committee, they considered the question "On a plan for oil production, production of oil products, and material and technical support for the oil industry in the III quarter of 1942." In the adopted resolution for oil refineries of the People’s Commissariat of the Oil Industry for the III quarter of 1942, a plan was set for the production of aviation gasolines in the amount of 392,2 thousand tons, including 210 thousand tons of B-78 gasoline and 156 thousand tons of B-70. Here, the plan for July 1942 was also defined: 130,8 thousand tons of gasoline, including 70 thousand tons of B-78 and 52 thousand tons of B-70

                    Gasoline Extra-100 in small quantities was obtained in Baku by direct distillation immediately after the Civil War. This provided only development work, as yield was less than 1%

                    - Catalytic cracking made it possible to produce gasoline with an octane rating of 78–80. With a small addition of TPP 2 cubic meters. cm / kg, the octane number was 100. By the beginning of 1941, the process was under development. The installation in Leningrad was under commissioning;

                    - The vapor-phase oxidative cracking process of the Dubrovay-Soviet system produced fuel with an octane rating of 81. When adding 3 cubic meters. cm / kg TPP, the octane number was 87–88. At the beginning of 1941, the Konstantinovsky plant had a working installation. In Sumgait, it was planned to build a plant with a capacity of 500 tons / day (commissioning was supposed in early 1943);

                    - Thermal reforming made it possible to obtain aviation gasoline with an octane rating of 75–78. Work was carried out on installations in Baku and Grozny;

                    - Catalytic reforming made it possible to obtain aviation gasoline with an octane rating of 75–80. One installation was converted in Grozny;

                    - Catalytic sulfuric acid alkylation made it possible to obtain high-octane alkylbenzene (a component of 100-octane fuel). High-octane fuel plants designed sulfuric acid alkylation plants.

                    The construction of three units for the catalytic polymerization process in Ufa, Saratov and Grozny {293} was also carried out. [222]

                    According to the draft national economic development plan for 1941, the increase in cracking capacities was to reach 600 thousand tons, for isooctane plants - 87 thousand tons, for alkyl-gasoline plants - 65 thousand tons.

                      Varieties of Soviet aviation gasolines were previously labeled according to the system: the letter B and a hyphen - a number indicating an octane number.

                      As an example, in the USSR in the mid-20th century aviation gasoline was produced - B-59, B-70, B-74, B-78b and B-78g, with the last two slightly different in chemical composition, which was indicated by the letters after the number: b - This is from Baku oil fields, and g - from Grozny.

                      Subsequently, to increase the octane number, an antiknock additive was introduced into gasoline:

                      - product R-9 (tetraethyl lead - 55%, ethyl bromide - 35%, monochloronaphthalene - 10%, red dye);

                      - product B-20 (tetraethyl lead - 55%, ethyl bromide - 35%, dichloroethane - 10%, blue dye);

                      Additive was added in volume from 1 to 4 cubic meters. see liquids per 1 liter. Additive gasolines were marked:

                        You read a little. B-87 is a brand of gasoline after a cracking unit. The brand is set at the octane equivalent. Modified gasoline is refueled with an increased octane rating. Unmodified gasoline and separately antiknock additives (in which there was no such sharpness) were supplied to us by Lend-Lease.
                        In addition, our conversation did not affect the technology for producing high-octane gasoline from coal by hydrogenation (the same German one). And this technology was sufficient to produce high-octane gasoline with a number of at least 87, but it was very expensive in terms of energy, the cost was at least 60% higher than that of gasoline obtained from distillation.
                        Those. in fact, our entire debate rested on the causes of the gasoline component of Lend-Lease: an acute shortage of labor resources in the first place, in the second - lack of equipment, in the third - lack of raw materials, and only in the fourth - technological backwardness.

So if there would have been no attack on the USSR, which was the main reason for the defeat of fascist Germany, it is still unknown who would have fallen before - England in the blockade by the German submarine fleet would hardly have survived 1942. And this is well known by their own sources, when the supply of raw materials to the UK fell significantly due to losses in shipping. But this is all from the realm of alternative history, and therefore we can only speculate on this.

          So if there would have been no attack on the USSR, which was the main reason for the defeat of fascist Germany, it is still unknown who would have fallen before - England in the blockade by the German submarine fleet would hardly have survived 1942. And this is well known by their own sources, when the supply of raw materials to the UK fell significantly due to losses in shipping.

          This fleet was not omnipotent. The British fleet was stronger. Supplies fell, then quickly found the antidote to PF, supplies increased, and by the end of the PF in Germany there were generally miserable flaws.

          Hitler had a chance in the blitz, but he was unable to cross the English Channel ... And then the USA entered the battle .....

            From statistics on supplies of raw materials to the UK.
            An important condition for the successful development of the military economy was the availability of sufficient supplies of raw materials and food. However, its growth was adversely affected by the difficulties in fuel supply. In 1942, Great Britain imported 10,2 million tons of oil, or 2,8 million tons less than in 1941. Due to the technical backwardness of the coal industry and the deteriorating working conditions of miners, coal production decreased: in 1939 it amounted to 231,3 million tons, in 1942 - 205 million tons. In May 1942, 17 thousand tons less coal was mined weekly than in April of the same year1. However, the government did not take the necessary measures to increase labor productivity in the coal industry. It only transferred 36 thousand workers from military factories to mines. But this did not give the expected results.
            The import of raw materials and food could not meet the current needs of the country and at the same time create large stocks, since it was difficult to ensure the safety of sea lanes. As of June 1942, food reserves amounted to 6,6 million tons, oil products - 5,9 million tons, iron ore - 2,1 million tons, steel - 2,3 million tons, non-ferrous metals - 0,8 million tons 2.
            ..... The delivery of raw materials, weapons and food from the United States, dominions and colonies required an increase in sea transport. In this regard, in the second quarter of 1942, merchant ships with a total tonnage of 334 thousand gross tons were built in Great Britain, and in the third quarter - 306 thousand However, ship losses far exceeded their construction, which negatively affected the supply of England with raw materials and agricultural products and, in general, the development of its war economy.

                The Americans really wanted to milk the British Empire, which is why they introduced a land lease and promised the British that they would help them in the war with Germany. Moreover, the law was not introduced in 1939 or in 1940. but only in March 1941, when they realized that the Germans could really defeat the British and end the war, and therefore the British would not stop at any cost. As a result, this happened - Britain lost many colonies and the pound as a world currency, and the era of the dollar reigned in the West. As the Anglo-Saxons say, nothing personal, just business.

I will not describe in detail, but the British were forced to send a lot of raw materials from their colonies to the United States, and obviously not at favorable prices for them, thereby offsetting the supply of arms from the United States.

                    Creditors from the United States insisted that Hitler settle down with respect to England, which is why he had to reckon with those who financed him after 1933. True, he did not expect that the Americans would throw him, which is why he did not launch attacks on American ships for a long time, but in the end he declared war on them at the end of 1941.

      And fuel ... and some types of metals without which you can’t make weapons?
      The Germans during the war began to catastrophically miss this ... it is not surprising that they often abandoned purposeful tanks and planes for the commonplace reason of lack of fuel.
      War is primarily the state’s resources ... natural, human, economic, military.

          I agree. Then I will finish your thought with mine. Take the darkest tones.
          RF in the future may be in the place of Germany. On the one hand, Europe and the United States, on the other, China, the south is also in question. At the same time, if the opponents use yao, it will be on a minimal scale. They, as well as on the topic of the article, need the resources of the Russian Federation selectively. Natural - absolutely everything, but human, that's the question. They may agree to leave most of the population, but they are unlikely to engage in persuading those who do not particularly like them. They do not have enough psychologists for their own. Waiting for 40 years in the desert like Moshe is also a question, the new generation must be separated from the older, so that the "infection" is not transmitted.
          And by the way, such a nuance. If it is necessary to minimize the use of nuclear weapons, then how, or rather, who should cleanse the territory of 1/7 land? China will be given the east. Until the Urals will not be allowed. Kemerovo, Novosibirsk, somewhere there. The north will not be given to them either. There remains a huge territory with a majority of the population. The forces of the United States army are not so little here, it is not so simple, from the word in general. There is an order of magnitude better option that is already cooking on the stove. All countries of Eastern Europe, especially ... okay, list those who especially will not. So they, communicating perfectly with the inhabitants of the Russian Federation in one language, will do the same as the natives of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania during the first Romanovs. Only taperich will not repeat the error, or rather not an error, but a condition acceptable for that time (when everything was united under one scepter). Now they will be crushed to atoms and inspire to everyone his identity right from Adam and Eve. And de facto all molecules will be part of one huge organism.
          Here I will express sedition. The Russian "truth uterus" is the least suitable for the current conflicts. Suppose, instead of paraffinizing Ukrainians through an article, it would be much more effective to print materials on events when common friendship gave the fruits of victories. Well, in that spirit. And let them write anything in response, let them know that you will not take over their garden or throw vigorous garbage into the garden. And so you have already been provoked to a not entirely considered step, which, apart from problems and an embittered brother, brought nothing. Which was just an excuse to put on a noose.
          I do not know in what form it will be, but the fact that globalization will end successfully is a fact. The question of time - when, and the question of the form of managing the world - how is not yet closed. If the people of the Russian Federation will be included in the globe, resting their hands on their feet, the mother of all to the right and to the left, then how is Hermes trimigest "what is above, so below." They will treat the mentally ill and dangerous to the rest of the community.
          There remains the option of introducing into this structure voluntarily, cutting off his ego in order to preserve and carry on the second part, which is more valuable. Otherwise, it will be like with Scythians and images, they disappeared somewhere, there are none of them.
          ps. as soon as they wait for a clear answer to the question - "nothing will come in response, because it can't or not," so they will begin. I think 20 years left.

          Hitler overestimated the possibilities of Germany in a protracted war with Russia.

          Hitler overestimated the value of Italy, which, for all its capabilities, was never able to block the logistics of the Allies in the Mediterranean.
          If the Italians blocked the Suez Canal, took Malta and Gibraltar, which they could possibly do, Hitler would have succeeded, and the British would have been out of the game already in 1940-41m.

        If Hitler could fight off the hot USSR at least until the summer of 1945, then after Roosevelt’s death everything could be different. Japan did not give up, it was a disaster for the United States, in addition, even after nuclear bombing, Japan fought for another two weeks, which made it possible for the USSR to seize the islands under Tokyo's nose. Only when the Minister of Defense told the emperor - if we don’t surrender to the Americans, then in a week or two, the Russians will be in Tokyo. And then Japan surrendered.

      Hitler wrote his work long before coming to power and everything was described there that later the Nazis and European henchmen turned into reality. Everything has been described in sufficient detail and without any equivocations so dear to tiligents.

        That's because Mein Kampf is banned here, and we have similar studies. This anti-human ideology should not be prohibited, but studied, starting from high school and universities, with the involvement of veterans ...

        Today, an article appeared in the administrative code banning the demonstration of the symbols of fascism - the swastika. Already there is a convict for posting in social networks as our winners throw fascist banners to the mausoleum ...

        A bit about the technology of changing consciousness.
        There is a phenomenon. There is an image of this phenomenon. A word (code) is assigned to this image. When we hear the word, an image arises in us, we understand the phenomenon. By distorting and prohibiting the images of fascism, we (the young generation) become confused about a phenomenon that without any difficulty enters our lives. Thus, the silence in Soviet times about Vlasov and his symbol - a three-light banner, allowed them to make him a symbol of a whole country, and we accept it as something new, original. The result of this is known to all of us.

        Today it’s forbidden to talk about it, tomorrow it will be forbidden to show it, after tomorrow it will be our everything. Of us make Ivanov not remembering.

        ps
        Swastika is an ancient symbol. The symbol of fascism is on a red panel, a white circle, inside which is located a swastika. Only together these components are a symbol of fascism.

And the idea of ​​the inevitability of Germany's defeat due to limited resources, which has been heavily driven by "pravdyuk" since the 90s. The idea is false. Our ancestors could not stand in the hell of Sevastopol, Leningrad, Moscow and Stalingrad - the further history of the world would be written by the fascists. All the values ​​of "democracy" and Western industry would be destroyed by the German army (if desired). And European, Turkish, African resources would be enough for Hitler to finish off the "Western democracies". The French and Czechs voluntarily worked on Hitler's war plans. The "stinking slaves" about which the author writes were not the basis of the European economy of the Nazis.

          Germany to 41 broke France, Poland, Norway, Denmark, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Belgium and Greece! Separately, offensive operations took from 1 day (Denmark) to three weeks (Poland)! In fact, only Britain sat behind the Channel! The rest of continental Europe lay at the feet of Germany, however, like its industry, human and raw materials.
          The victory over the USSR trite put a logical point, who would be the hegamon in Europe for the next 100 years! So the “cus” was worth the candle. Germany took a chance and lost!
          I am not a supporter of conspiracy theories or protrusion of the role of factors that finally broke the ridge of Nazi nits !!! Let me just remind you that our Fatherland paid the most expensive price in the victory won by Nazi Germany - 27 million people! My opinion is precisely this “fundamental assessment of the contribution of our grandfathers and great-grandfathers to our common and most important victory” !!!

    Halder, of course, was modest in his description of the enemy and forgot to focus on the high quality of Russian weapons
    and this is September 1941 (the main tank bt, the main fighter I-16, etc., you can continue for a long time) "mosinka", "maxim", "dp" ... - he had nothing to focus on. the economy of germany could not stand ( why Hitler did not even consider a protracted war). If the Germans did not climb into the USSR immediately, but began to milk Europe better, it would be much more difficult for us to win.
    Germany needed a manpower - by the end of the third year of World War II, the country had practically no male population aged 20-30 in the manufacturing sector. Losses at the front now had to be replaced by older workers of military enterprises - in the following year several hundred thousand men went to the army, which was very difficult to replace. At the same time, there was no need to count on help from the female population - it already accounted for 34% of the workforce, which was the highest value among Western countries. And German industry required millions of workers ...
    and we had it differently? we had children (and not just women) collecting shells, but there was nothing to say about pensioners over 60 years old - the country was overwhelmed by forging (probably not the right word) victory.

    In the book “The Price of Destruction. The Creation and Destruction of the Nazi Economy ”Adam Ace collected and systematized a unique material that makes you take a fresh look at the history of World War II. The Hitlerite project of colonization and forced modernization turned out to be utopian in many respects for the banal reason of lack of calories and muscular strength.
    The author should have thoughtfully read the book itself before writing the article about the book, since the book is not at all about the calories and muscular strength of the Third Reich. The book is about much more serious issues.
    According to the author, the main task of the book is: "If we want to understand the terrible deeds of the Third Reich, we must understand the motives of those who committed them."
    It is to understand the motives why Hitler and his supporters involved Germany in the second world war for less than one generation, the author analyzes the economic foundations of the Third Reich and comes to the following conclusions.
    1. The economy of the Third Reich completely did not meet his imperial plans, and Hitler understood this.
    2. Even an understanding of the discrepancy between economic opportunities and aggressive plans did not stop Hitler from starting a war.
    In turn, the author explains the completely illogical actions of Hitler as follows.
    Hitler based on current economic trends as early as the 1920s. he understood the threat to Germany and to all other European powers that the US becoming a dominant global superpower hid in itself predicted that the European powers only had a few years to rally in order to confront this inevitable outcome.
    Hitler, instead of reconciling to the place occupied by Germany in the global economic system with its dominance of wealthy English-speaking countries, sought to mobilize the dissatisfaction that had accumulated among the population in order to challenge the epoch-making system.
    In addition, Hitler believed that the threat to the Third Reich from the United States was not reduced to the traditional rivalry of the superpowers. This threat was existential in nature and was closely linked to the fear of a worldwide Jewish conspiracy, which he saw manifestations in the “Wall Street Jewry” and in the “Jewish media” of the USA.
    It was this fantastic interpretation of the real balance of power, according to the author, that served as the reason for Hitler's unexpected, risky decisions. Germany simply could not come to terms with the role of the rich satellite of the United States, since this would mean surrendering to the worldwide Jewish conspiracy and, ultimately, the death of the German race. Given the inability to protect oneself from Jewish influence, which manifested itself in growing international tension at the end of the 1930s, future prosperity in the framework of capitalist partnership with the Western powers was simply impossible. War became inevitable.
    One can argue with the author’s conclusions, but, nevertheless, some points are very similar to the present and the current geopolitical situation, so the book deserves attention.

      Thanks. I read the book carefully. I agree with you that the author's conclusions can be argued for a long time. Accordingly, Ace decided not to write about the "existential character" and other reflections. But it's worth talking about hunger and slave labor, as a consequence of Hitler's adventure. In my opinion, there is nothing more important than the death of so many people, mostly peaceful. It's about yours -

        Is the fact "about hunger and slave labor as a consequence of Hitler's adventure" a discovery and is it the first time this book is told about it? Tons of books have been written about the crimes of the Nazis, including the use of forced labor, and the book in question does not add anything to this list and does not set such a goal.
        If you decide to remind once again that you should not forget about it, then mentioning the above-mentioned book is generally out of place. Agitation must also be able to write.

      This is an obvious bust, if only because in the 20s there was no one to call Hitler, and he could hardly get to a serious analysis of the development of the world economy at that time. He may have grasped intuitively the future leader, and whom he should be afraid of, but nevertheless remembered the ocean dividing the continents. As far as we know, even the Japanese leadership did not look very much at the United States at that time. Therefore your conclusion

In fact, if we consider Hitler as a politician, then in my opinion there was more impulsiveness in him when making decisions, i.e. he made decisions based on the operational situation, not as a result of well thought out in-depth analysis. At least the attack on the USSR was a manifestation of his monstrous incompetence in terms of assessing the USSR as his enemy, and this best characterizes him as an ordinary politician.

There is nutritional value, there is a source of proteins (they are important in case of increased physical activity, especially leucine, there are also ulevodov, the cost of production is minimal, Well, can't such a by-product be called "marmalade"?

              In April 1953, two months before the uprising, there was an increase in prices for public transport, clothing, shoes, bread, meat and sugar-containing products. At the same time, the lack of sugar led to a shortage of artificial honey and marmalade, which served as one of the main components of the standard breakfast of most Germans. According to the participant in those events, this already caused a wave of indignation among the German workers. Outrage over the rise in price of marmalade was confused and misunderstood by the Soviet leadership, who had no idea about the role of marmalade in the nutrition of German workers, and was perceived as a "marmalade riot." In Russian historical literature, there is a thesis that the beginning of the development of the 1953 crisis was largely “the marmalade rebellion”. But most Russian historians, as well as historians of other countries, do not use the term “marmalade revolt”.

                Oh well. Wiki, riot ...
                And what is "marmalade"? Life or a product made using a specific technology?
                Take the word "sea", the islanders of the Pacific Ocean have 70-80 meanings and words for writing different versions of our "sea".
                So is the "marmalade".
                Have you ever used a homemade water extract from a sugar beet grown by yourself instead of sugar? Try it. Be amazed at the taste. The fact is that before the invention of refining from a solution, such a "shmurdyak" was normal in any village in the south of Russia. Adding the skin of a pig there and trimming made .... a long-lasting product.
                Call it "gadget" at least, the meaning does not change. Well, the gasns called it marmalade .... one caveat - ours forgot to scrupulously clean it of dextrans and sprinkle with vanilla)).
                Remember the school. The revolution has a reason and a reason. Reason - at least call marmalade, if there is a reason it will foam.

                  I didn’t have a chance to eat the products from buryak described by you, but I heard stories about its cooking and slicing into pieces! And that’s it. And these pieces for the military and post-war children were the sweetest in their then life!
                  You still remember the shag - you will not find it now in the afternoon with fire! And used to be sold in every newsstand! Erzatz tobacco!

                    Well, if we talk about the Second World War then shag must be remembered.
                    By the way, she is not an ersatz at all. This is a separate type of tobacco plants, which in taste was considered a little worse than tobacco. And in life, tobacco was separated from the mahra by its softness and more gentle effect on the body, that is, tobacco was considered a more noble product.
                    And he disappeared because of the Ministry of Health, which began to look askance at the chemical composition of shag. Makhorka has more psychoactive ingredients, which are only traces of tobacco. And the effect of shag differs from tobacco.
                    If you took an unambiguous ersatz, then they made a mixture of maple leaves and tobacco dust "bucklen" was called. And the soldiers themselves were doing real yad)), this is a mixture of the bark of a young oak and some types of moss. Himself in the army, experiencing a tobacco hunger and went along the path of comrades, smoked tea (this is 90-92 years.) But realizing the entire emptiness of this procedure, he began to ask older people (some were on the outskirts of the Ural town), so they talked about bark and moss, well muddied this product .... super! really better than tea, it breaks instantly to a tear, and the main thing is to twist the second goat's leg in two hours, when the negative from the experience falls below desire and drags on vigorously ...
                    And marmalade ...
                    About the riots of the Germans from the lack of marmalade, you can write a separate article. But take it wider, for example, Czechs and bagels with beer, Poles and a shunka with butter, French and croissant with wine. .... In Russia I remember salt riots, anti and about alcoholic fights, grain riots it is clear, there is hunger which is not an aunt.
                    What can destabilize them, and what us, when and under what global conditions?
                    Although I admit honestly, I only read about marmalade riots after your post. But the topic is simply unique to the sociology and psychology of conflict.

But while there is still an army and such soldiers, they are afraid of Russia, even with a second-rate GDP.

    Already in early September 1941, Germany felt the cold breath of a distant war. Reichsbank released a report in which it noted the increase in inflationary pressure on the market. The shelves in the stores were empty, the consumer basket was shrinking, the money supply in a short period grew by 10%, and the mass of buyers rushed to the black market. Barter unprecedented since the post-war era has appeared.

    Actually, problems with food in the Reich began even before the invasion of the USSR. However, there is nothing surprising - the mobilized army, as a vacuum cleaner, pulled people, including people from the agricultural sector, who began to consume them instead of producing food.
    General Osterkamp: Difficulties in supplying meat. The number of pigs decreased from 27 to 20 million heads. Cattle should not be touched. Therefore, you need to reduce consumption. It is necessary to reduce the consumption of meat in the ground forces before the offensive. In the armed forces, the norm is reduced from 1500 to 1350 grams, and for the civilian population, from 500 to 400 grams [per week].
    © Halder. War diary. Record of May 12, 1941.
    The grain situation in 1941 in the Reich was even more "fun" - without the plunder of the USSR, the grain balance did not come together.
    The Green Folder is Herr Thomas, who is a “military economist,” who composed it. Available in the original in the Bundesarchive / Military Archive. The "economic" measures in the occupied territory are being painted. In particular, from the USSR, in any situation and any mood of the local population, it is expected to receive 2.5 million tons of grain, which the USSR promised Germany from the 1941 harvest and which are already included in the Reich's food balance (without them in any way), 3 million tons of grain per army food (if you drag it from the Reich, there is not enough rail capacity) and about 2 million tons more for Germany’s obligations to Romania, Hungary and others. Total approximately 8 million tons of grain. Herr Thomas did not build rainbow illusions and clearly stated that this plan can only be realized if the current agricultural system is preserved, including mainly in the form of collective farms (if you start extensive experimentation with the forms of ownership, you can drive past the 1941 harvest with songs) and severe non-economic coercion regarding the seizure of grain. It also says that when implementing this plan, millions of indigenous people are expected to starve to death, but the Reich should not be bothered, since the occupied territories are required as a source of raw materials, not a highly developed industrial area, and the peak of mortality will be in industrial areas that and so are not able to provide themselves with agricultural products.

    By the way, it was the food shortage in the Reich that served as one of the reasons for the failure of the Reich's negotiations with Spain on the alliance: the Reich was not able to replace the Spaniards with food imports from America, without which a massive famine would have begun in the devastated Spanish Civil War.

      It is highly doubtful that famine would begin in Spain, if only because it is a sea country off the coast of which there are so many fish that it is possible to feed it to the entire population even in ruin. And agriculture in that climate is much easier to develop than, say, in our regions of the European part. I think that Spain’s relative neutrality is due to the fact that there they perfectly understood that they would primarily rake from the USA and Great Britain if they dare to openly side with Hitler. This fear was the main reason that they limited themselves to sending a volunteer division to the Eastern Front.

    2,5 million Jews who died during WWII - an adequate assessment.

    The non-existent Zionist propaganda from 1945 all year buzzed about 6 million Jews - victims of the Holocaust, despite the fact that in 1980 the post-war table in the largest German concentration camp Auschwitz with the number of people killed in 4 million without noise and dust was replaced with a new one with the number 2 million killed


    The Israeli Holocaust historian Yehuda Bauer stated in 1989 that the 4 million deaths at Auschwitz is a notorious myth. In 1990, the Polish Auschwitz Museum in Poland, together with the Israeli Holocaust Center Yad Vashem, officially announced the number of people who died in 1 million people. The famous British Holocaust historian Gerald Reutlinger estimates the number of deaths in 700 thousand, the French Holocaust historian Jean-Claude Pressack - in 800 thousand, including 630 thousand Jews.

    German industry actually switched to the war footing in 1943 after Goebbels talk about total war.

    According to information available on the Internet, Germany's motive for WWII was revenge for the defeat in WWII under the guise of the slogan of the struggle against communist expansionism in the person of the USSR. This goal has been warmly supported by all European countries since the advent of the war party led by Hitler. Immediately after the 1933, the WWII winners in Britain, France and the USA renounced the right to recover reparations from Germany, lifted contractual restrictions on the creation of the German armed forces, issued multi-billion dollar loans, transferred military-technical technologies in large quantities, including complete equipment for aviation and engine-building plants, etc. .d. etc.

    In addition, Germany was consistently allowed to occupy the demilitarized Ruhr region (the center of the German military-industrial complex), annex Austria and the Czech Republic with great industrial potential, and occupy Poland (by refusing Britain and France from their allied obligations). But Hitler’s plan in one single point did not coincide with the plan of his Western sponsors - Hitler did not want the WWII situation with the German war to be repeated on two fronts, so he first took control of all European countries (with the exception of Britain), and only then began military operations on the eastern front.

    Hitler made only one mistake - he did not finish off the British Empire before the attack on the USSR, which Stalin did not expect from him, who logically predicted the beginning of the war with Germany in the 1942 year (after the completion of the German occupation of the British Isles).

    Germany needed the consolidation of the resource, industrial and agricultural potential of Europe in order to achieve multiple economic superiority over the USSR - all countries of continental Europe, including Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and Sweden, worked shockingly on the German Reich. Therefore, in principle, Germany could do without the slave labor of Soviet prisoners of war and extradited residents from the occupied territory of the USSR.

    But the calculation of the German economists (who advised Hitler) turned out to be erroneous - the economy of the USSR (taking into account the help of the Allies in Lendlis) was sufficient to defeat the economy of all Europe (with the exception of Britain).

    The fact that the USSR did not sign an agreement on the treatment of the military, the Germans closed the whole war

    You are mistaken - the Geneva Convention on the Treatment of Prisoners of War from the 1931 of the year, which Germany signed, obliged all parties to the convention to extend its effect to prisoners of war countries that did not sign the convention. In case of violation, criminal liability ensued.

    The military-political leadership of the German Reich, including the command of the Wehrmacht, were criminals under the Geneva Convention. However, before the start of the Nuremberg trial, the USSR concluded an oral agreement with the United States and Britain on the removal from criminal prosecution of the German armed forces command in return for the complete non-mention of the USSR during the pre-war process of liberating the western territories of Ukraine and Belarus, the Baltic states becoming part of the USSR, and collaboration the population of the occupied regions of the USSR during the war, etc.

    And fuel ... and some types of metals without which you can’t make weapons?
    The Germans during the war began to catastrophically miss this ... it is not surprising that they often abandoned purposeful tanks and planes for the commonplace reason of lack of fuel.
    War is primarily the state’s resources ... natural, human, economic, military.
    Hitler overestimated the possibilities of Germany in a protracted war with Russia.
    Now, looking at these history lessons, I look at the capabilities of our opponents in the war against us ... USA, NATO ... now they are not able to fight with us for a long time.

    Hitler wrote his work long before coming to power ... But why do such * studies * appear in RUSSIA?

    That's because Mein Kampf is banned here, and we have similar studies. This anti-human ideology should not be prohibited, but studied, starting from high school and universities, with the involvement of veterans ...

    Today, an article appeared in the administrative code banning the demonstration of the symbols of fascism - the swastika. Already there is a convict for posting in social networks as our winners throw fascist banners to the mausoleum ...

    A bit about the technology of changing consciousness.
    There is a phenomenon. There is an image of this phenomenon. A word (code) is assigned to this image. When we hear the word, an image arises in us, we understand the phenomenon. By distorting and prohibiting the images of fascism, we (the young generation) become confused about a phenomenon that without any difficulty enters our lives. Thus, the silence in Soviet times about Vlasov and his symbol - a three-light banner, allowed them to make him a symbol of a whole country, and we accept it as something new, original. The result of this is known to all of us.

    Today it’s forbidden to talk about it, tomorrow it will be forbidden to show it, after tomorrow it will be our everything. Of us make Ivanov not remembering.

    ps
    Swastika is an ancient symbol. The symbol of fascism is on a red panel, a white circle, inside which is located a swastika. Only together these components are a symbol of fascism.

    the swastika has nothing to do with fascism, and fascism as an ideology was born in Italy long before Hitler and also has nothing to do with it. In general, the swastika, in fact, is the cross of Shiva, a symbol of Hinduism. All other characters similar to it are called and look different, and they are constantly confused by illiterate people.
