  4. XD World war two is never a war of Good vs Evil, unless you count the differing perspectives.

    for instance: Hitler did not believe the allies were the good guys, right? No, and if he did, I would question my philosophical views.

    A war for resources makes MUCH more sense.

  6. Excellent, as always.
    Only one point I don't agree with.
    WW2 was not a war of 'good' vs. 'evil'.
    It is more accurate to say that it was a war between 'evil' and 'pure mega-evil'.
    The western Allies fought for the status quo of their system of colonialism, the exploitation of a billion people for the benefits of the controlling power, hardly a good cause.
    And Stalin's SU, …weeeelll….commentary superfluous.

    Where do you but the poster? How much is it?

  15. The Second World War was a war between evil and evil. No side can claim moral or ideological superiority.

    Remember, had Hitler won the war, we would be taught that the war was one between good and evil, but the 'good' would be Nazi Germany.
