    Elsewhere on the forum I was told that Nazi Germany didn't want to eventually defeat America. I found this rather amusing so I looked around for information to the contrary and I found this...

    Amerika Bomber - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Is this some kind of conspiracy theory and incorrect?

    I also read that Hitler wrote a second, unpublished book where he stated that in 1980 his successor would be able to defeat America with long range missiles.

    :eusa_eh:

    I was also told that Hitler would not have warred with England if only they surrendered. :lol:

    The Amerika Bomber is true as far as I know. History channel had a great program about WWII far-out tech and plans a couple of years ago. Amerika bomber was on there.

    He didn't want a war with England. he wanted to expand eastward and England and France got in his way (good thing) by declaring war on Germany when they attacked Poland. by "surrender" they probably meant dropping out of the war. hitler tried to make peace with england on multiple occasions.
    hitler declared war on the USA because of his pact with Japan.

    Hitler never had the capability to defeat America. Nobody ever has. To defeat the US you would have to build a massive Naval force and be able to maintain logistic supply lines in excess of 3000 miles.

    A bomber may have been able to piss us off but could never defeat us. Hitlers bombers couldn't defeat England from a hundred miles away...how could he defeat us from 3000 miles away?

    The Ju 290 was a pipe dream, it didn't work.

    The closet the Germans ever got to a heavy bomber was the HE-177, a plane so bad the Germans never bothered to mass produce it, instead they kept the bombers designed in the 1930s in service until the war's end.

    You will have to do better rav, you made quite a fool of yourself on this one.

    (Hint: when it comes to WWII knowledge, I know more about it then most people, I'm certified to teach it on a college level)

    Atomic weapons were beyound German abilty, ironically because of Hitler's racial polices, the men needed to do it had fled west.

    The key man, Enrico Fermi, had left italy because he was married to a Jew.

    The Brits were prepared to kill the only remaining man who might be able to figure it out, Werner Hisenberg:

    Britain's OSS determined he could not suceed to the mission to kill him was called off.

    The information about the Amerika Bomber came out after your article was written.

    And while it was a pipe dream, the atom bomb wasn't.

    I found this interesting.

    (of course, maybe it's just more of Stalin's propaganda :lol:)

    Still think you can one up me?

    For shame Rav, look at the date of the article, Nov of 1941.

    The USA broke international law in 1940 to send war material to Britain, and had been fighting an undeclared naval war against Germany for several months by that time.

    Try again, you still aern't even close. :lol:
