You’re all welcome. It’s very very good. I actually fell asleep reading it because I couldn’t put it down!

Have you ever read about the Brandenburgers me lady?

I find it very interesting being this was the creation of Admiral Canaris, being as he was an anti-nazi, but he really was the creator of special forces. A pioneer in this kind of warfare

Yes in a few biographies of him. I think he was not so much anti-Nazi as pro-Abwehr. A very interesting man.

Oh he was definately anti-Nazi, but still a patriot. Which led to him still fighting for the Nazi's. He also went out of his way to save Jews and others from execution. He was just too afraid to openly stand up to Hitler, but he did much to fool Hitler

I agree to a certain extent. I should’ve said more anti-Hitler. The snobbishness of the armed forces were about this little corporal nobody who had taken power not so much about what how disgusting the policies of the Nazis were. But as time went on, I do think he was genuinely horrified and as you said tried to fight from within. He was a patriot and paid the price unlike say Speer who just wanted to look good to the world.
