HISTORY OPINION POLL 3: "Were German soldiers during WW2 the best fighters in history?"

Some historians, such as British author and ex-newspaper editor Max Hastings, consider that "... there's no doubt that man for man, the German army was the greatest fighting force of the second world war". Similar views were also expressed in his book Overlord: D-Day and the battle for Normandy, while in the book World War II : An Illustrated Miscellany, Anthony Evans writes: "The German soldier was very professional and well trained, aggressive in attack and stubborn in defence. He was always adaptable, particularly in the later years when shortages of equipment were being felt"
From Wikipedia 

Many think that the German soldiers during World War Two were the best fighters history has ever seen. Do you agree?

Archduke Franz Ferdinand of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire was shout while in a parade by a radical Serbian Nationalist, Gavrillo Princip, who was part of the "Black Hand", who had been planning a large assassination. When this happened Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, because Serbian had been pissing them off in the past. In response to Austria Hungary declaring war on Serbia, Russia supported Serbian expansion and declared war on Austria Hungary. In the past Germany signed documents with Austria Hungary that agreed that they would back each other up if one got in a war. So, since that automatically puts Germany on Austria Hungary's side, Russian and all the allies declared war on Germany. Since the closest Ally to Germany was France, the Germans knew they had to quickly defeat France, in order to avoid a two front war. The reason I called France an Ally is because, France was part of the "Allies" and Germany and Austria Hungary were part of the "Central Powers."When the war was over the Allies encouraged harsh terms on Germany and attacked it as if it alone had caused the whole war. Post WW1 and Pre WW2 Germany was constantly getting beat up on, which eventually led to the rise of Hitler. Go to YouTube and watch "Becoming HItler" part 1 and 2 if you have the time. Here's the link to part 1 and here's the link to part 2 Hope you watch and learn. Thanks for taking the time to even read this.

History Quotes

May 1945 - If hell on earth existed, than it existed in Prague after May the 5th. 1945. Old men, women and children were beaten to death and maimed. Rapes, barbaric cruelties, horror-scenarios of hellish proportions - here they had been let lose.

- Ludek Pachmann, Czech Chess-Grand Master and publicist, forty years after the fact.

Snippets From History

Paulus didn't give the order to 6th Army to surrender, but his troops no longer had much fight left in them. Resistance faded out over the next two days, with the last die-hards finally calling it quits. One Red Army colonel shouted at a group of prisoners, waving at the ruins all around them: "That's how Berlin is going to look!

Points to Ponder: Why Is China Unstable?

The aim of individuals in any society is money and power. Societies that give equal chance to all its members to get them will be the most stable. That is why democracies are more stable than other systems of governance.

China after Deng's reform gave the chance to get rich but power is in the hands of an elite; the Communist Party of China. Membership to the party is at the whims of the local party bosses. This leaves out many people who crave political power dissatisfied and disgruntled. There in lies the roots of instability. The Party suppressed these demands once at Tiananmen in 1989. But force is hardly the way to deal with things like these.
