Paul Craig Roberts ‘Rescuing the History of World War II’: Wear vs. Suvorov

“In contrast to Hitler, Stalin had all the resources needed to overrun Germany and all of Europe in a real blitzkrieg. Stalin had militarized the economy. Hitler had not. Stalin had prepared the Soviet Army, Navy, and Air force only for offensive operations. The army had not been trained how to retreat…”

Germany’s War, Chapter 4: The Allied Conspiracy to Instigate & Prolong WWII

By Paul Craig Roberts

The fourth chapter of John Wear’s book, Germany’s War is now posted. The evidence is overwhelming that it was Roosevelt and Churchill who were determined to have war with Germany and not Germany who wanted war with the Anglo-Saxons.

Hitler made many peace overtures to the British government both before and after he conquered France and drove the British out of Europe. On August 14, 1940, during the Battle of Britain, Hitler called his field marshals into the Chancellery and told them that victory over Britain must not lead to the collapse of the British Empire. Hitler told them that

“Germay is not striving to smash Britain because the beneficiaries will not be Germany, but Japan in the east, Russia in India, Italy in the Mediterranean, and America in world trade. This is why peace is possible with Britain—but not so long as Churchill is prime minister. Thus we must see what the Luftwaffe can do, and wait a possible general election.”

It was Churchill’s determination to keep the war going that destroyed the British Empire.

I have reread Viktor Suvorov’s book, The Chief Culprit, published by the U.S. Naval Institute Press in 2008. Suvorov believes that Stalin is responsible for WWII by encouraging, even luring, Hitler into moves that would put Germany at war with Britain and France. Stalin had long planned to take advantage of Europe at war when his massive and fresh armies would dominate the field.

By subversion or invasion. Communist aggression internationally has been relentless for more than 100 years.

In June, 1941, both Hitler and Stalin had assembled on their border large armies for invasion. Stalin’s army was many times larger and much better armed than Hitler’s which Suvorov reports had resources for only two months of war. Stalin knew that German forces were assembled on the border. Stalin had excellent intelligence, and it was the excellence of his intelligence that resulted in the Soviet army being caught off guard. Stalin knew that Hitler had assembled troops but lacked the material resources that he needed to support an invasion of Russia. He assumed that Hitler and his generals were rational [or fearful?] and would not attack until they were properly prepared.

In contrast to Hitler, Stalin had all the resources needed to overrun Germany and all of Europe in a real blitzkrieg. Stalin had militarized the economy. Hitler had not. Stalin had prepared the Soviet Army, Navy, and Air force only for offensive operations. The army had not been trained how to retreat. The high speed Soviet tanks were designed for the roads of Western Europe, not for use in the mud, snow, and ice of Russia. Everything Suvorov has uncovered about the Soviet armed forces proves it was assembled for an invasion of Western Europe, which if the Soviets had struck first would have been successful.

The forward positions of the German and Soviet armies made them vulnerable to whoever struck first. As the Germans were not prepared, Stalin was convinced the initiative would be his. In forward position, there are no defense positions. All the ammunition and weapons are on the border. There is no time to move anything or to fall back.

Suvorov believes that Hitler knew Stalin was about to attack and struck first. In contrast David Irving reports that Hitler said that if he had known of the size of the Soviet army, the superiority of its weapon systems, and the Soviet ability to turn out far more and better tanks, cannon, and aircraft than Germany, he would not have attacked.

My conclusion at this time is that Suvorov is correct that Stalin was on the verge of invading Western Europe which required only the defeat of Germany, whose armed forces were greatly outclassed by those of Stalin. By striking first Hitler captured the vast stockpiles of offensive weapons and entire Soviet armies prepared for offensive, not defensive war, and thereby prevented the Soviet conquest and occupation of Western Europe from which no Normandy invasion could possibly have dislodged them.

Hitler attacked unprepared because he believed the war would only last 3 months, which gave him two months to come up with the resources for the third month. I don’t see the evidence that Hitler knew he was about to be attacked*. And it is certain that the British and Americans had no inkling of Stalin’s plan to conquer Western Europe.

It is a paradox that it is the demonized Hitler who saved Western Europe from communism, and it is ironic that the British and Americans were so incompetent that they were focused on the German non-threat and not on the Soviet threat.

It seems clear enough that both Wear and Suvorov are correct. World War II was caused by Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin, not by Hitler.

*Editor’s Comment: With the greatest respect, I believe Paul Craig Roberts is being circumspect in his statement: I don’t see the evidence that Hitler knew he was about to be attacked.” Perhaps the words “sufficient” and “yet” might have been useful clarifiers. Adolf Hitler knew that Josef Stalin was about to attack all of Europe, and this is why Hitler attacked the Soviet Union first. Viktor Suvorov makes this clear in his book The Chief Culprit, and John Wear makes this clear in Chapter One of Germany’s War.

However, WWII is an extremely challenging subject. As Paul Craig Roberts stated in the prior chapter review:

“A couple of readers corrected me about Hitler’s march into Russia. The German invasion of Russia was not a folly, they said. It saved Europe from Soviet conquest. The readers said that Hitler had no choice as Germany was faced with Soviet invasion. Their contention seemed implausible to me.”

It no longer seems so implausible to many readers, and that is the purpose of Germany’s War, to bring history into accord with the facts, without fear or favor of the ‘narrative’.

    After Stalin lost much of his offensive military capability in 1941 the Americans replaced it. It was American economic power which destroyed Europe and ensured that the eastern part became enslaved by communism while the western part became a puppet of the US. The British had to sell their empire to pay for American assistance but the Soviets never had to repay a cent. The end result was not accidental.

      From watching Europa: The Last Battle, I thought the major contribution to the Bolshevik revolution came from the Jew Jacob Schiff. After listening to Anthony Sutton, I was amazed at all the other ‘aid’ we gave to Stalin! WTF!!!!

  5. bifurcatio says:

    I can’t help but wonder what would have happened if Hitler didn’t invade Russia, but waited for Stalin to attack all of Europe. Would not Britain and France have begged Hitler for help to defeat the Bolsheviks? Wouldn’t have America falling in with Germany, Britain, and France to beat Stalin? Is it possible that the rest of the Western world would have acknowledged Hitler’s financial success and followed suit? Might we now be living in a debt free world outside of the Jewish Rothschild banking system? ‘Europa: The Last Battle’ on bitchute.

    I find the editor’s comment rather non-researched. At the Kangaroo court hearings called the Military Tribunal At Nuremberg practically every high ranking German officer stated that Operation Barbarrosa was an action that beat the Soviets own invasion by weeks or months. The defendants were fighting for their lives against the absurd charge of ‘crimes against peace.’ It obviously never occurred to the Allies that they started the war.

    • Editor says:

      You misread the comment. PCR was still learning and working his way through the book. My point was he should not have been so final in his statement. The fact he has an open mind is a great start to learning the real story of WWII. There was no need to insult him if he was to read that post when we put it up.

  7. Anon says:

    There was a hunch by many, based on Molotov’s brusque and churlish demeanor after signing the pact. Classified documents around Gehlen’s agents behind the lines in the East may lend support to the thesis. There’s Churchill’s suggestive ‘we were compromised’ remarks, alluding to issues about dealing with Stalin, and negotiations around Operation Keelhaul ‘repatriations’. Half of the Hopkins & White Venona duo handling FDR had a ‘heart attack ‘before being required to testify to the Senate on nuclear plans and materials intercepted in port en route to Vladviostok with undocumented “do not inspect” orders post war– perhaps this, or slow rolling opening the Balkan/French fronts caught up with them, with Allied prisoner exchanges in the balance.
