there were no good sides in WW2, they were all shit except maybe a few bumfuck partisans around the place

Meme harder. Sure, he was involved in the July plot, but that's after riding Hitler's coat tails for years; shooting Nazi propaganda films, volunteering to head his bodyguards when on international trips, appealing to the Fuhrer to override his Heer superiors when guys like Halder told him he had dumb ideas. The guy was hardly a political innocent.

That's a bad person that was on the good side.

But some where better than others. Some didnt try to exterminate entire nations.

>>675993
Montgomery qualifies for that spot too
>>
>>676006
zthe lesser of two evils is still evil, and a nation's just an imaginary line
the kids that died in Dresden and Hiroshima probably wouldn't take it as much consolation that their nation wasn't being exterminated
also you can make the argument of the Holodomor, that the allies condoned what some believe to be the planned extermination of Ukrainians, Cossacks and others

also just adding onto that, Winstin Churchill's role in the Bengal famine

I wouldnt call the US, UK and Canada evil, they liberated France/Holland/Netherlands/Denmark/Austria/Italy/Parts of Czechoslovakia from Germans who were actively oppressing the civilian population, but of course there were inhumane incidents.

Holodonor happened before the Allies were the Allies, but they condoned shady shit like selling Poland out to the Soviets.

He was fighting in fucking Northern Africa, of course he wasn't rounding up jews. Still a part of the Third Reich whether you like it or not.

What did they replace it with though? That's the most important part and the part that makes it a real liberation.
>Holodonor happened before the Allies were the Allies
that's even worse, because if it was happening at the time they would have had the excuse to not trust reports

>using 'good side' and 'bad side' unironically

How's high school treating you?

You got me there m8, the way europe looks now it makes me wonder if it was worth it

>that's even worse, because if it was happening at the time they would have had the excuse to not trust reports
the western allies still wouldnt have done anything about it. They didnt want to piss off Russia until the end of the war, they let the vatniks get away with so much shit

Admiral Wilhelm Canaris was way better then fucking Rommel. Canaris, actively encouraged his spies to work against the Nazis. One word to them otherwise and all the Spies the British figured were easily duped would have turned fucking hardcore.

>"I die for my fatherland. I have a clear conscience. I only did my duty to my country when I tried to oppose the criminal folly of Hitler." -upon receiving his death sentence from the People's Court

>"Badly mishandled. Nose broken at last interrogation. My time is up. Was not a traitor. Did my duty as a German. If you survive, please tell my wife..."- Final message to Colonel Landing, in the cell next to his.

Selling out Poland was better than WW3, Stalin was never going to back down because his focus was on security and Poland was the most important nation concerning that security.

>Selling out Poland was better than WW3
Selling out Poland was also better than WW2, Hitler was never going to back down because his focus was on security (and getting rid of the Versailles treaty) and Poland was the most important nation concerning that.

But the allies still jumped that shark. Why? WWI was not that long a go either.
