comment Can we classify holocaust as Hitler's war time strategic mistake?
@Lennart Regebro no, Germany persuaded their allies to kill Jews as well, even where Germans were not living. Germany continued killings when they were retreating as well, and in the face of defeat.

@Lennart Regebro without a war they could exterminate Jews only in Germany where there was only about 100000 of them, while Hitler wanted to exterminate Jews globally or at least, in Europe.

comment What is the earliest known account of the modern military salute?
@Pieter Geerkens it is not dating to Ancient Rome. Actually Mussolini took it from a fiction novel which was not historically accurate.

I would also add that at the presidential election Hitler lost to Hindenburg, who was supported by all anti-Nazi forces. This clearly indicates that the people did not support the Nazi cause, and it was only the betrayal by Hindenburg of his voters that paved the way to the Nazis.

@Vector free verse in not just something without rhyme. It is something without meter as well. I do not know about Homer writing something without meter.

@Vector following the link I see rhymed poetry to my impression. Anyway, it would count.

The Henry's speech would count if it was not from a play by a poet, lol.

Sorry, I am not interested in "free verse". I am interested in true poetry.

comment How did Germany produce such an impressive portfolio of officers for WW2?
@T.E.D. this sounds very much strange to me, here Eastern Front is known very much better, to a very wide circle of people, including general public, enthusiasts and students, while other fronts are virtually unknown. As such, the problem lies definitely not with accessibility of archives or time, but with language barrier and focus of propaganda/education. And I am well sure the total number of films about Eastern Front far outnumbers the number of films about Western front, possibly by orders of magnitude.

@Lennart Regebro I suggest you create a new question for this matter.
