Very Thorough but

Very thorough but not sure I needed this much depth leading to the war. It’s been a long road and sense we’re still a ways off. Ha!

Great info and detail

Can’t wait until the Battle of France. Also hoping for some good detail on the Dutch and Belgian forces.

They Cannot Help It

The mental and linguistic gymnastics that this program does to distance fascism (as it appeared in the Germany and Italy of the period) from modern socialism- seems simplistic and perhaps uninformed. You only realize intentionality when the author(s) perform the same gymnastics to conclude that the fascism of the era parallels modern conservatism.
The writing is a few years old now and may simply fall into the “end of the world is now” mentality of that moment.
There is a WW2 day by day presentation on YouTube that does a much better job of presentation of facts.
