    3:54 *cough that's not the German flag, it's the Belgian cough*
    Also you might want to clarify that you are using the *current* "Bundeswehr" (Army) Symbol to symbolise the banned "Hakenkreuz"... Cause that's just mean. Some stupid people will probably think now, that it's the actual symbol and if they ever see the Bundeswehr they'll Freak Out.

    If Great Britain used their soldiers against Germans instead of sending them back in Dunkirk, if French Army attacked Germany, when Hitler's army was in Poland, Second World War would have never happened. It would be just local confict between Poland, France, UK and Germany. Probably ended in 1939.

    Qing Empire vs Taiping Heavenly Kingdom vs Britain, France

    My great grandpa fought in D Day. He was one of the lucky 300 that survived. He saw his friends blow up in his face... what’s horrible is that he fought for the USA and I actually kinda like the Nazis and Hitler. I just wish he didn’t kill Jews but I understand why he did.

      Uh, what? The UK and France were imperialistic way before they held democratic ideals, and the US wasn't very imperialistic from the get-go. Saying imperialism is something inherent in democracies, something you implied, is really ignorant.

      Because it was totally Hitler and not, you know, his generals. In fact it wasn't even the military leadership that did much special as their original plan for the Battle of France was going to go as expected by the Allies. It was only due to some unpredictable events that it didn't happen.
