Victory is not defined in purely military terms, but above all – in terms of the economic advantage achieved as a result of war – once the dust and smoke of the battles settles. That’s why the US was clearly an economic winner; Europe continued to struggle in order to survive and pay for land-lease, while American GDP rose from $88.6 billion in 1939 to $135 in 1944, America then was enjoying practically 100% employment, with unemployment declining from 8.1% of the population in 1940 to the lowest ever of 1.1% in 1945, income of farmers increased 160%; the Golden era began. Although feminists do not like this period of full employment, fair wages, burgeoning middle class, and happy marriages, most Americans who have any knowledge of it are quite nostalgic, especially so women.

As a British journalist
wrote about the first American troops arriving in
“But then the Americans arrived. We had never seen anything like it. Massive, well-fed men marching sloppily through our streets with enormous bottoms waggling. Their supply stores sounded like Aladdin’s caves and they showed generosity with Hershey chocolate bars and chewing gum. Here was the best-fed army in the world. For them the war was ‘the good war’ which pulled their farms and industries out of recession and into unprecedented prosperity. They were fighting for ‘The American Way of Life’. It seemed mainly to consist of enormous amounts to eat.”
British women, young and
on a war-time diet of strictly rationed food, were the prettiest in the world

Not surprisingly, other folks had a different opinion – some 60,000 British women became American war brides. The language differences alone were the cutest. Cynical as it may sound, researchers find direct correlation between female sexual attraction (and satisfaction) and the size of… the suitor’s bank account;  in WW-II it was the size of GI’s food rations and payroll allowances. Do not blame me for this opinion, blame “evolutionary science” researchers. They get government grants for this. By British standards GI’s rations were obscenely huge and by American standards British girls were immensely alluring.
But going back to Ms. Collingham’s calorie-centric analysis of the greatest conflict in the world’s history, it is scholarly, well-researched, convincing … and unsettling in its honesty. In contrast to the Nazi’s ideology of social Darwinism, it can be said that WW-II was the survival of the fattest.
The pre WW-II Germans
remembered quite well the experience of WW-I, when the British Royal Navy’s
The messy Revolution lead
to the abdication of Keiser Wilhelm, establishment of a liberal democratic
government (Weimar republic) and the June 1919 Treaty of Versailles, with its
reparations, which many Germans would eventually come see as not only
oppressive, leading to massive inflation and hunger, but punitive, humiliating
and insulting to their national pride. In a remarkably short time after 1918, many
Germans deluded themselves to think that they had not really lost the war. The
military elite mounted a successful campaign in the 1920’s to attribute the
collapse of the Germany’s military to a “stab in the back” theory, by “enemies
at home,” socialists, liberals, communists and Jews. They conveniently obscured
a simple truth that if peace treaty were not signed, many more millions of
soldiers and civilians would have died, and
The “stab on the back” theory was a convenient replacement of the historic facts with absurd political mythology. The facts were: German people circa 1918 were on the brink of starvation – the result of the British naval blockade; German armies lost on the battlefields in the summer of 1918; Germany’s Austrian, Turkish and Bulgarian allies had crumbled and exited hostilities; German defenses at the Hindenburg Line, considered Germany’s impenetrable defense of last resort, by November 1918 had been completely broken and overrun by the British 1st, 3d and 4th Armies, which included Canadian, Australian and American troops, and by the French First Army.
The British Fourth Army's commander, General Henry Rawlinson wrote: “Had the Boche [Germans] not shown marked signs of deterioration during the past month, I should never have contemplated attacking the Hindenburg line. Had it been defended by the Germans of two years ago, it would certainly have been impregnable…”

Ludendorff to save the face of the Imperial Army and throw the responsibility

It was a clever political move by the military elite seeking to preserve its
prestige, pay, privileges and political future. Thus, the myth of the
“Stab-in-the-back” was born that the army had not failed, only the civilian
democratic government. Emperor Willhelm II abdicated and fled to the
The historical facts were
easily distorted to pamper the egos of the German military, especially in the
late 1920’s as Weimar republic faltered and Hitler began rising to political
prominence, riding high on the back of the “stab on the back” mythology and
promises of employment, food, and geopolitical expansion. A little known fact
is that it was German women who had overwhelmingly voted for Hitler, bringing
him to power through democratic elections. The blue-eyed charmer drowned

Germans, after the 1945 Nazi defeat, would become in a sense the new Jews, symbolizing all that is wrong with humanity, often dehumanized, although arguably not nearly as much as Nazis dehumanized the Jews, but unlike the dehumanization of Jews – with Germans, there was a reason: during WW-II they burned down tens of thousands of villages killing and burning their dwellers in the Soviet Union alone, as well as in Poland, Czechoslovakia, Greece, and France.
Having made the myth of the “stab
in the back” highly popular, Hitler united

Again he banged the table. “Symbolically? No! It's the sheer simple undiluted truth. Two worlds face one another—the men of God and the men of Satan! The Jew is the anti-man, the creature of another god. He must have come from another root of the human race. I set the Aryan and the Jew over against each other; and if I call one of them a human being I must call the other something else. The two are as widely separated as man and beast. Not that I would call the Jew a beast. He is much further from the beasts than we Aryans. He is a creature outside nature and alien to nature.”
Hitler seemed to have more to say. But words failed him amid the onrush of his surging thoughts. His face was distorted and working. He snapped his fingers in his excitement. "It's an endless subject," he spluttered. >>Â
Prominent in the Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda was the concoction of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, a purported “Zionist text” describing an alleged plan to achieve global domination by Jews. The text was a propagandistic fraud. Following its first publication in 1903 in the Russian Empire, numerous independent investigations have demonstrated that the document was a hoax; notably, a series of articles printed in The Times of London in 1921 revealed that most of the material in the alleged “protocols” was directly plagiarized from earlier works of political satire. The Protocols is entirely a work of fiction, written to blame on Jews a large variety of societal ills. The folks who continue to distribute it claim that it “documents” a “Jewish conspiracy to dominate the world.” The conspiracy, its alleged leaders, the so-called Elders of Zion, never existed.
Hitler was a major fan and proponent of the text. The “text” was studied, as if factual, in German classrooms
after the Nazis came to power in 1933, despite having been exposed as
fraudulent years before. Hitler used the “Protocols” as a “justification” for
initiating the Holocaust — his “warrant for genocide.”§
And he had staunch supporters in the good ole’
Ford, American industrialist, financed the printing and distribution of 500,000
copies of the “protocols,” circulated throughout the
Cross of the German Eagle, the Nazi regime's highest honor for foreigners. There are many verified sources of all of the information regarding Henry Ford in this paragraph, but all of it, including the verbatim quotation above is well summarized in one article, Ford and the Führer, by Ken Silverstein; January 6, 2000, The Nation (http://www.thenation.com).
“Protocols” purports to document the minutes of a late 19th-century meeting of
Jewish leaders discussing their goal of global Jewish hegemony by subverting
the morals of Gentiles, by controlling the press and the world's economies. It
is still widely distributed today, often offered as a “genuine” document. Not
unlike Nazi Germany, in the
To understand how the Holocaust of Jews became possible, one does not need to go as far as the time when Roman Catholic Church in order to establish itself as a legitimate religion in Rome, where it was outlawed, falsified original gospels. Instead, it is enough to realize the influential role played by Darwinian biology of the time. There was a growing sense, particularly since Ernst Haeckel, that there were those in society who were “biologically” inferior and that for the civilization to survive and thrive, those who were 'unfit' should be done away with. Minorities were declared “unfit,” particularly those who were quite fit to compete for jobs. Real-life attempts to “breed” super-humans failed miserably, often resulting in such “achievements” as genetic disease, alcoholism and drug addiction and other unexpected, undesirable “side effects.”
But at the time there was
an unspoken sense that humans should take matters into their own hands. Today’s
dirty little secret is that many hues of Eugenics were very popular as
“science” in the
This fact is a key to understanding how a number of factors converged to create the nightmare of the centuries, and allow annihilation of 6 million Jews, and millions of other innocent people, just because they were not ethnic Germans. “Biological inferiority” is subjective today, as it was then. In Britain, for example, many Social Darwinists, especially those active in education and academics, were so impressed by the achievements of Jews in schools, universities and exact sciences that they concluded that they were a “superior breed” ... Ironically, this view was echoed in Nazi conspiracy theories, which painted a picture of diabolically cunning Jews, outsmarting the honest, hardworking Germans in all aspects of social life. At the cradle of Fascism of 1920’s, the French, Italian and Romanian nationalists declared their respective national archetype “superior.” Today, the small but vociferous and virulent nationalist parties and groups in Russia, Ukraine, Poland, former Yugoslavia, Germany, Latvia, UK, and US assert theories that whomever they are – they are a superior “race,” as do nationalists of every other place where history is neither taught nor learned, so certain groups of people have lived under the rock, putting them at least 100 years behind in their intellectual development.
In the US and Britain, when “progressives” of 1900’s-1920’s, 30’s and 40’s discussed the “lower races”, these included African Americans, anyone from Southern or Eastern Europe (from French, Italian and Spanish to Poles and Ukrainians), the Irish and Scottish who were considered to be inferior to their English counterparts, not to mention all colored races from Asia and middle East. By nature of their “race,” these groups were argued to be “unfit”.
It was argued that if
these “unfit” were already in the country, public policy of the
The late Democratic Senator Byrd, whose KKK membership seem to have assured his Senatorial seat for life till his death on June 28, 2010, wrote in 1944 to segregationist Mississippi Senator Theodore G. Bilbo:
“ I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
— Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1944, 
America’s reverse racism of today and its politically correct public policies only underscore the arrogance and absurdity of its ruling political elites, in whose hands public policy is a pendulum of “social justice,” tossing the country from one extreme to the other, so the country’s president of today better be black, Muslim and a woman, no matter how ridiculously poor the candidate’s qualifications.
The true political
nobility, such as Pres. Theodore Roosevelt (not to be confused with FDR), were
far and few in between. A true intellectual and staunch supporter of law,
President Theodore Roosevelt made public a letter he wrote to Governor W.
“ My Dear Governor Durbin, ...permit me to thank you as an American citizen for the admirable way in which you have vindicated the majesty of the law by your recent action in reference to lynching... All thoughtful men... must feel the gravest alarm over the growth of lynching in this country, and especially over the peculiarly hideous forms so often taken by mob violence when colored men are the victims – on which occasions the mob seems to lay more weight, not on the crime but on the color of the criminal... There are certain hideous sights which when once seen can never be wholly erased from the mental retina. The mere fact of having seen them implies degradation... Whoever in any part of our country has ever taken part in lawlessly putting to death a criminal by the dreadful torture of fire must forever after have the awful spectacle of his own handiwork seared into his brain and soul. He can never again be the same man…” (Signed in Oyster Bay, N. Y., August 6, 1903.)
Pres. Theodore Roosevelt, an officer and a gentleman, did not trade his deep humanitarian convictions for Southern votes, which he thus lost.
Another dirty little secret is that the Nazi regime had financed its rise to political power and the war it waged by astronomical loans from the American and English banks (in addition to “regular” means, such as by raising taxes, by printing money and, above all, by the brutal exploitation of the conquered European continent’s resources.) But that’s another discussion altogether.
Regarding the food

By diverting the grain supply from the occupied cities, towns and villages of Eastern Europe and using it to feed German armies instead, the indigenous populations of Poland and Russia could be decimated, the German army well-fed and fertile territories cleared off for German colonists, all in a single logistical sweep. Hitler often spoke of Russia as Germany’s equivalent of the American West; Drang nach Osten (German for “yearning for the East”, “thrust toward the East”, “desire to push East”) as an equivalent of the American manifest destiny — “drive towards West”, and annihilation of the Russian, Polish, and Ukrainian people in the east, as a German equivalent of the annihilation of the American Indians.

Herbert Backe (photo of whom is shown here), appointed the Reich Minister of
Food in 1942 (he was the de facto Minister prior to that), and appointed
Minister of Agriculture in April of 1944. This Nazi functionary, whose name is
less familiar to an average reader than those of Goebbels, Himmler and Goering,
was no less evil, although in the 2nd tier of power. Herbert Backe
was an agronomist who in early 1941 devised, as part of the Plan Barbarossa,
the “Hunger Plan” that concentrated on using the Soviet Union fertile
lands to solve the problem of
The city dwellers were
‘useless eaters’. The people in the cities who relied on the country for its
grain and livestock were to starve to death. When denied food, the body begins
to consume itself ─first it burns fat and muscle,
then the intestines and last, the vital organs. There is intense craving
for carbohydrates and salt and uncontrollable diarrhea before a final torpor.

Herr Backe was the very picture of German respectability: clean-shaven, with thin-rimmed spectacles, neat collar and tie, dutiful and attentive – a bureaucrat who went home in the evenings to his loving wife and children, good dinner, and an occasional night out to the theater or cinema. It can be said he designed the most destructive weapon of WW-II, starvation.
Food production and consumption had always been the primary reason behind Hitler’s plans for seizing Lebensraum (Living Space) in the east, and Backe’s short-term plan would solve simultaneously two of the problems formulated by the Fuhrer: it would annihilate the estimated number of Russians, while feeding the estimated number of Germans – a clean, scientific, efficient approach to procuring strategic supplies of food for the Aryan race.
The third leg of the plan was to move German pioneer families into

Seizing the agricultural produce in the Ukraine for the purpose of feeding the Reich, required brutal measures: a) annihilation of superfluous populations, such as Jews, intellectuals, the population of big industrial cities and cultural centers, such as Kiev, which did not receive any supplies at all; b) extreme reduction of the rations allocated to Ukrainians in the remaining cities; c) decrease of the food permitted to be kept by the food-producing farming population.
“Altogether the regime’s agrarian vision for the East generated plans to murder up to a hundred million people,” Collingham wrote.
Backe argued that German
agriculture alone could never produce the 3,000 calories per man per day needed
by Wehrmacht, which at its peak numbered 9.5 million men, a staggering
one-seventh of the German population. In the course of war,
Hitler had made it clear to his generals that he wanted a complete physical destruction of the major Russian cities, with the populations killed off. German Army’s Chief-of-Staff, general Halder wrote in his diary:
