  • Because he wasn't, really.

    He invade Poland while entering a pact with the Soviets. So how is that fighting Communism given Poland wasn't communist?

    He invade a lot of people's countries. He killed a lot of people.

    Only some of them were communists.

    You're a failure.

    Because it wasn't that simplistic:

    "Everything I undertake is directed against Russia. If the West is too stupid and blind to grasp this, then I shall be compelled to come to an agreement with Russia, beat the West and then after their defeat turn against the Soviet Union with all my forces."

    I doubt fighting Communism was his reason for invading Russia. He did believe Russia was a backwards country and at the time it was no where as industrialised as Germany and was being held back by Stalin and communism. He saw it as a resource rich country which if he controlled would give him huge deposits of oil and metal ores he could use to manufacture and drive his plans for world domination. He saw the people as subhuman and not ready for war and ideal for slavery to built his 1,000 year Reich. Before WW2 Russia was no real threat to any other country, but by the end of the war it had become a militarily strong country and that is when communism became a real threat to other countries as it now had the power and confidence to be a threat to any country in the world.

    Ah why indeed, maybe because it was expected of you to be able to work that little bit out for yourself, along with his fighting against the democracies and just about anybody else he happen to take a disliking too.

    Actually, to be more correct, it was Marxism, and apparently you went to a school where they didn't teach much history and they didn't encourage you to do outside reading. It isn't like you couldn't find a copy of Mein Kampf easily enough and read it yourself. I read it when I was 15 or 16, I think. The high school library had a copy.

    Because the USSR was part of the Alliance forces, and hence on the side of the "Righteous".

    Actually, they do, since communists (or some versions of communists - bolshevists, petrovosts, Leninists, and about a dozen other groupings -- were being gathered with jews, gypsies and other "undesirables".

    That wouldn't make him any less of an a-hole.
