The World at War

On this Memorial Day, I started watching the 1974 British epic documentary, The World at War (thanks to this Instapundit post). One major thing I learned from the first episode is that Germany prepared for its early invasions by creating narratives of persecution about its intended targets, setting itself up as a liberator, and thus creating an environment where an apathetic world could capitulate to Germany’s political agenda.

Wow, good thing nothing like that happens anymore.
