    We in Germany "learned" at school that we can´t say "Tribunal". It´s the "Nuremberg Lawsuits".
    And we can´t set off the people killed by each side. Our dead civilians don´t count. That is what we learned at "school".

    I guess you probably shouldn’t have started the war then. Ya think?

    Exactly. They didn´t attack and they became Stalin´s ally who also attacked Poland.

    By any humanitarian measure Stalin was a much worse tyrant than Hitler, whose main territorial goals were to recover German territory (including Poland/East Prussia) which were confiscated by the Allies after WW1. The gruesome discovery of German concentration camps at the end of WW2 has wrongly allowed historians to place the entire blame for both World Wars on Germany, while ignoring British/French machinations and Soviet atrocities.

    I've always found the intervention, if you will, by Admiral Nimitz on behalf of Admiral Doenitz very interesting.

    The Avalon Project : Judgment : Doenitz

    In view of all the facts proved and in particular of an order of the British Admiralty announced on the 8th May, 1940, according to which all vessels should be sunk at sight in the Skagerrak, and the answers to interrogatories by Admiral Nimitz stating that unrestricted submarine warfare was carried on in the Pacific Ocean by the United States from the first day that nation entered the war, the sentence of Doenitz is not assessed on the ground of his breaches of the international law of submarine warfare.
