Yes, but in his defense you struck first. The most damning thing you could say is that his tactics were ineffective, unlike the US dropping the atom bomb on Japan for example.

I think there is a difference between bombing military targets, like Germany did, and deliberatly targeting civilian population

No. In total war, civilians are resources, killing them damages their morale and the war machine.

rules of war are just means to have a reason to get rid of the leaders of a defeated country to control it when the war is over. This is a farce.

>>
>>55011330
from the nazi point of view, jews were tratiors and allies of the bolshevism

Not really

Exterminating Jews was higher priority for Germans than winning the war
>>
Was he a war criminal?

No.
>>
>>55011250
Nazis started the whole thing, they're guilty of that. killing civilians of defeated countries is "wrong" unless you have a reason and that reason is eugenics and future exploitation of the clay you conquered but, not everybody can be open minded to understand this :^)

Their reason for killing civilians was fighting partisans

Not true at all.
Killing Jews was not as important for Hitler as hollywood movies make it out to be.
It was more of a sidenote. I mean, he planned killing tens of millions of slavs, so why not kill 6 million jews aswell

>>
>>55011450
You and me both know it's a lie. the bulk of the civilian casualties were not related to partisans.
The eugenic tendencies of the nazis support that those were massacres.
>>
>>55011510
Why did Germany waste so much resources (both matériel and pesonnel) if they could be deployed in a war effort, even when Soviets were in an offensive then?
>>
>>55011640
Well, the strategic long tern plan of nazi was making Germany independant of food imports by conquering enough farmland in the east. And since that farmland couldn't support both Germany and the local population, the hunger death of the latter was calculated.
And since the civilians were gonna die anyway, Germans took a lot of liberties when fighting the partisans
>>
>>55011450
You're moving the goalposts
>>
>>55011716
It wasn't so much resources, really.
There were a lot of people who were not qualified to serve at the eastern front, but could be still used for killing jews.
Also, using the people in the concentration camps as slave labour was kinda productive, aswell
>>
>>55011551
When nukes become obsolete
>>
>>55011779
Elite SS units couldn't have been used on the Eastern front?

Germany didn't have much resources in the end and it chose to spend them on this
>>
>>55011874
You will always need some units to secure the supply train and fight local resistance. You can't just have all of your forces on the front
>>
>>55011900
Germany also chose not to exploit anti-Soviet sentiment in Ukraine and the Baltics for ideological reasons

It could've utilised local population
>>
>>55011965
Yes, that was pretty stupid.
But their end goal was to basically eraddicate Ukrainian population anyway
>>
>>55011724
yeah exactly you were genocidal dicks who deserved everything you got
>>
>>55011965
When you think about it, it was Hitler's ideological rigidity and fanaticksm that lost you the war
>>
He did nothing wrong

Allied bombing of civilian targets was justified

The nuclear bombs saved lives too
>>
The Holocaust is a lie, Hitler was right, he wanted the best for all European people, Wehrmacht was the most honorable and dignified army to have ever existed, Poles used partisan armies so the Wehrmacht had to attack the so called "civilians", all of Europe and even USA lost their connection to heritage because Hitler lost the war, if your ancestors knew what the outcome of the great war would be, they'd fight for Hitler.
>>
>>55012077
I am not excusing Germanies warcrimes.
But I don't think one warcrime justifies another, or would you disagree?
>>
>>55007842
He was a total bro
>>
>>55012174
Civilisn bombing was justified because fanatical German people supported the worst barbarities imaginable

You started the storm and now you're crying because it blew up in your face

German forces raped and killed more women in USSR than Red Army ever did
>>
>>55012149
this. both firebombing and nuclear bombing saved allied soldiers lives.

What Hitler and his brown shirts started in the days of Weimar the whole German people later carried on with. We tried to reverse the irreversible, ending national socialism is the original sin.

Yes and the international court of human rights and Nürnbeger trials made it clear to the whole world that you can no longer get exculpation by saying """""""""""it was just his job""""""""""""", it's also a case of macro criminology.
>>
>>55012762
Mate the Japanese government were already in the verge of surrendering, and even sent a letter to then president Roosevelt as early as 1944 via mcarthur. Roosevelt pretty much ignored the proposal, despite the fact that the content was almost identical to the terms indicated int eh Potsdam declaration (except for retaining the emperor). If the murricans really wanted to save lives, they would have accepted the surrender notice in 1944. No battles of Okinawa and Iwo Jima would have happened. The nukes were just used to experiment on human subjects (hence why no bombs were dropped in hiroshima and nagasaki prior to the nukes, and 2 different types of nukes were used), and to scare off the russians.

>I ... assume that the view under consideration is something like this: no doubt in the past we were justified in attacking German cities. But to do so was always repugnant and now that the Germans are beaten anyway we can properly abstain from proceeding with these attacks. This is a doctrine to which I could never subscribe. Attacks on cities like any other act of war are intolerable unless they are strategically justified. But they are strategically justified in so far as they tend to shorten the war and preserve the lives of Allied soldiers. To my mind we have absolutely no right to give them up unless it is certain that they will not have this effect. I do not personally regard the whole of the remaining cities of Germany as worth the bones of one British Grenadier
