    Britain vs Dutch, Germans, and Boers?

    The Dutch and Germans were sympathetic to the Boer cause, and apparently threatened war at one point in the second Boer war. Had they made good on their threats, what would have happened?

    What papers were Germans required to carry under the Nazi regime?

    Whenever I watch a WWII movie with the SS or Gestapo, they are always asking to see "your papers please". What exactly were those "papers"?

    Protestant Germans under Napoleon's Confederation of the Rhine

    Greetings! I am researching my family history and I was hoping to collect some opinions about why my family might have immigrated to the United States when they did. I have reason to believe that my ancestors immigrated from Germany to the U.S. some time between May 10, 1806 and May 9, 1807...

    Germans in Allied Countries during WWI/WWII

    What happened to the Germans who lived abroad, in Canada/America/Britain or (most intriguingly) in France during the Wars ? Deported ? Sent to camps ? Put on trial ?? Hated by the General Public as being public enemy #1 ?

    Could the Germans have won at Stalingrad?

    This question has, I'm betting, been asked a million times before. Could the German army have beat back the inevitable Russian counterattack at Stalingrad and held the city long enough to eventually slice off Russia's Caucasus oil supplies, devastating and ultimately defeating the Red Bear? I...

For this project I must write an essay of approximately 5000 words and deliver a short presentation but unfortunately I am stumped as to where to begin. I had planned to...

    When did Germans realize Hitler was the evil one?

    I was just watching a movie called Valkyrie, which is about one of the failed attempts to kill Hitler. That got me thinking, everyone knows that Hitler was the leader in germany back in the II world war period. But when did the germans realize how evil he actually was. Obviously its possible...

    German Superiority?

    I've been wondering lately about how the Germans held out against Russia, Great Britain, and the French during the bloody years of the First World War. Are there any logical explanations on why they were able to? The Central Powers were at a horrible disadvantage in terms of manpower. I hope you...

    What if the Germans won Stalingrad?

    The Battle of Stalingrad was obviously a turning point in the Eastern Front and maybe the war in general. Seeing as both sides lost tremendous amounts of men in the war, what if the Soviet counterattack failed? If the German 6th Army broke free from the encirclement and took control of...

    Were the Germans accountable for WW2

    Were the German people responsible for the rise of Adolf Hitler, the extermination of the Jews and World War 2 in Europe? This is a hypothetical question that has a bearing on current events. Are the citizens of a country accountable for the actions done in their name? Are...

    How did the East Germans stop rural defectors.

    Hi all, I apologise for my naivety... I have searched the net to find an answer, but nothing pops up that easily describes how the border between east and west germany was enforced during the split. Most queries return the Berlin wall... Was there patrols at border roads only? or was there a...
