Uh...no. The Nazis tried to expand their country by marching into others, killing or reducing the inhabitants to peons, selecting certain groups that they didn't like, especially Jews, and reducing them to slave labor or fuel for ovens. The US expansion left a lot to be desired in regard to how we treated Natives, but nothing we did came close to being an industrialized infrastructure of death. World history is full of awful events, but the Nazis are special.I've read a lot of books about WWII in the past year, spanning from the end of WWI, the economic troubles, the war itself, and the aftermath. I unfortunately do not know anyone who has any interest in history, so I have no way of bouncing my thoughts off other people. The more I've read about the third reich, the more it seems to me that they tried, but failed to do what America did with its westward expansion and killing of the indians.....
