I notice alot of people are saying bad stuff about ww2 but then why is every one interested in it?
You are joking right?
Can't we be interested in stuff that we think were terrible? If not, why do people read and write about war, disease or famine at all?
If you did not have any killings no one would be very intrested. ww2 had ended after poland not to many people would be very intrested. If Great Britian and France had not gotten involved they would not be very intrested in the history of the war. The same goes to the USA.
My uncle was a WWII veteran.He told me once that "There will be no more wars like that."
my 2 are
brutal and tank
In the sense that: a) nobody before 1939 could imagine what it would be like and b) noboby who didn't see it with his/her own eyes can really imagine what it was like.
I doubt I spelled that one right.
You spelled it right but a little explanation could be useful? How exactly was it barbaric? What is barbaric, in your view?
Ah - people spent 5+ years kiling each other by any means possible...
That's war, I was wondering if there was anything particularly barbaric about WW2 that made him describe the whole war in that one word.
German concentration/death camps, for example. Tearing down cities with the use of every (then) possible weapon and killing 100s of thousands of people not directly realted to the military operations. That's my guess.
Retribution for killed soldiers by partisens, it was around 100/Whermacht Soldier in Warsaw.
I'am reading a book my Martin Gilbert "The day the war ended" and it said that the Germans killed 6million Polish people, and half a million of those were jews. I am wondering if those numbers are correct, wether they added the people killed death camps/ labour camps/ retribution/ killed in uprising. 6million out of 30 million is a very large number. I also know of Polish peopel being deported by teh Russians
