Paul Herman of the USA asks, Wednesday, May 23, 2007, why Hitler never used his nerve gases
Hitler did not use Sarin; why?
BIG fan. Loved Hitler's War and actually I quite liked War Between the Generals. Besides your books I think Table Talk and the Stenographic Military Conferences [Hitlers Lagebesprechungen, also Hitler Directs his War] are fantastic reads into Adolf Hitler and his gigantic struggles in that war.
His speech to division commanders at the Adlerhorst in Dec 1944 before Watch on the Rhine [the Ardennes Offensive] is a marvellous recap of European history and their struggle at their present time (late 1944).
If Hitler was such a "madman" why do you think
he never used Sarin gas [a nerve gas of
which the Germans had stockpiled 30,000 tons, never
used] against the Soviets? Why do people
who call him a psychopath never mention this? Also
what do you think about the progressive government
policies that were put in place in the 1930's in
Germany. Why is the good that those policies
brought to Germany never given respect? I guess the
war years are supposed to wipe out any good that
David Irving comments:
VALID points. Many of modern Germany's current laws go back to the Nazi era -- for example a quaint rule that newspapers are not allowed to review the first performances of plays and films overnight, but must wait one or two days before rushing into print.
