World wars

The British enjoy deceiving their enemies. When the Prussian strategist Carl von Clausewitz defined war in 1833 as ‘those acts of force to compel our enemy to do our will’, he missed out the dimension that the British political philosopher Thomas Hobbes had spotted nearly two centuries earlier: ‘Force and fraud are in war the two cardinal virtues.’ [vc_row][vc_column width='3/4'] ‘The British...

Nineteenth century British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli commented that the world is governed by very different people from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes. Dr. Carroll Quigley who taught at Harvard and Princeton and at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University wrote about this network of "insiders" who govern from behind the scenes in...

Major Klimov's book is an unusually valuable contribution to the very difficult problem of understanding what is going on inside Soviet Russia. He gives a frequently dramatic description of his own process of development, and of his very rich experience and observation, which should be studied by all who have the future of the West at heart. Russia's internal development...

He plays a small role in the story about the disappearance of Otto Maier and Maier files, Martin Bormann. In May 1941 Martin Bormann was made Party Chancellor of the National Socialist Party, a position he utilized to become the Third Reich’s principal bureaucrat. He was also Hitler’s right-hand man, his personal secretary and his bookkeeper, and stood with the Führer...

In his excellent thesis, The Babylonian Woe, David Astle stated: "It seems that almost none of the scholars make any serious effort to throw light on the real meaning of  private monetary emission, and the disastrous effects that it has had, and in finality, will have, towards the defining of the remaining period of time of man upon this earth,...

WAR IS OLDER THAN HISTORY. Battle axes of polished stone found in late Neolithic culture, and the arms of war have appeared in every society since, escalating from cavemen’s weapons of personal destruction to nations’ weapons of mass destruction. Vicious fights evolved into nation-versus-nation and culture-versus-culture wars. Covered within every war is a secret war whose actions may never be...

For those who are familiar with the Maier files already know that the BND and the secret services are  playing a significant role in the huge storyline. As it is a golden rule if you want to find out what’s really going on, one must always go to the source. So, General Reinhard Gehlen's memoirs is a good start, an...

Everything is economics and war is indeed no exception. Not many figures will be necessary to remind of Germany's unprecedented economic expansion after her unification in 1871. The following may suffice: Production in coal between 1871 and 1906, quadrupled; between 1875 and 1913, it increased from 48,530,000 to 273,650,000 tons. Production in pig iron, between 1871 and 1901, quintupled. Production in...

Gehlen's memoirs are an interesting read and a remarkable view behind the scenes of the eastern front and the fully idiot decisions imposed by politicians (read Hitler), overruling the best military strategies. But don't expect dangerous revelations. Although there's an intriguing claim that Martin Bormann, chief of the Nazi party organization, was a Soviet spy personally protected by Hitler. Also...
