comment Was von Manstein's Lack of Success at Leningrad (and later Stalingrad) due to the failure of German military intelligence?
@PeterDiehr: Shirer is not good for "hard" history. But as a journlist, he was good at picking up "scuttlebutt" such as rumors of underestimation of Soviet strength. Even Chief of Staff Franz Halder admitted to such underestimates.

I asked for the views of "historians" or other experts. Reputable Historian A believes this, or HIstorian B argues that are "facts," or "references" (about the historians), not opinions.

comment Did the Germans have enough bombers to conduct “strategic” bombing of the Soviet Union?
@Matt: I'd say that "prioritize" means "put into production." Prototypes don't really count.

@JonCuster: Your comments basically answer my question. Why not put them into an answer so I can upvote, and possibly accept them.

@JonCuster: That's a good reason not to undertake strategic bombing. So apparently, Germany didn't "prioritize" this.

comment How does Upton Sinclair's The Jungle contribute to Historiography?
@SamanthaHutto: To use Dukakis' framework, I link "politics" to ideology, and "regulation" to "competence." tt's true that regulation has a political component, but this was the province of more "centrist" political policy makers. Sinclair was more of an "extremist," that is "socialist" rather than liberal or even "progressive." In this regard, his book failed to win many converts to socialism, but instead, became a rallying point for centrist "good government" types.
