Adolf Hitler and the Army of Mankind

Wow, page two. When we began this project I thought we might have trouble filling one
page, let alone two, since the subject material is exceedingly hard to find, after all. But it is
out there. Every day the internet is unveiling more information and photos. Although it is
spread throughout a virtual swamp of garbage and the usual system propaganda, parroted by
the usual brainwashed drones. The flow of information on the internet is uncensored for most
of us, for now. But it's only a matter of time until information like what is presented here is
censored 'for your protection.'
Page two reveals pictures and information previously unknown to even me, and I've been
studying this topic for years. Seeing black Africans proudly wearing the iconic eagle and
swastika on their breasts speaks a thousand words. Or various Asians, like Indonesians, Thai,
Chinese, and even Koreans, all sporting the Swastika and an Axis uniform, nearly shocks the
eye in bewilderment.
Men and women of all races fought against one enemy. What a criminal shame that their
deeds and deaths have been hidden from us today. But no more, one can hide the truth, but
not forever, eventually, it will surface.
Of course, the enemies of truth could say 'well, they were forced by the evil Germans to
fight for them.' But that lie, like all their lies, won't hold up to scrutiny. Especially since the
majority of the pictures you see here of non-whites, like their European counterparts,
are volunteers. It is up to you to educate yourself further. These pages are only a glimpse of
the rage, sorrow and wonder that awaits you, if you decide to look deeper. It will be a long
journey, but we're all on it together. The journey of a lifetime, that's for sure.

But, as always, pictures speak louder than words!

+ CROATIA +
Croatia was a member of the Axis from 1941-1945. It was led by Ante Pavelic (July 14,
1889 December 28, 1959). His ruling political party and movement were called the 'Ustae'.
In 1941 Pavelic formed the Croatian 369th Reinforced Infantry Regiment, a regiment of
9,000 volunteers to help fight the spread of communism. This regiment fought bravely and
was eventually involved in the Battle of Stalingrad.

The British Free Corps was composed largely of ex-prisoners of war from the British
commonwealth. There were volunteers from Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand
and Scotland.

[Above: British volunteer for the 'British Free Corps' unit of the Waffen SS, which was
formed in the spring of 1944. The details of this unit are scarce, but most historians put its
number between 60-100 volunteers. In the closing days of WW2 these gallant men were
joined with the SS Division Nordland, many of whom died in the Battle of Berlin.]

+ CHINA +

[Above: Chiang Wei-Kuo, son of Chang Kai-Shek (the President of China), in his National
Socialist German Army uniform. He trained in Germany at the Munich Military Academy
(Kriegshochschule), where he completed his training and later earned the coveted
Gebirgsjger Edelweiss sleeve insignia.
Wei-kuo actually commanded a Panzer unit during the 1938 Austrian Anschluss! He led a
tank into Austria and was subsequently promoted to Lieutenant of a Panzer unit and awaited
being sent into Poland. But before he was given the mobilization order, he was recalled to
China. ( To take part in the Chinese civil war, where the communists would eventually take
over the country)
Upon being recalled from Germany, Chiang Wei-kuo formally took part in the National
Revolutionary Army. There he became a Major at 28, a Lieutenant Colonel at 29, a Colonel
at 32, and later, a Major General. During the Chinese Civil War, Chiang Wei-kuo employed
tactics he had learned while studying in the German Wehrmacht.
Interesting eh? Those racist Nazis, training an Asian in warfare, adopting him into their
armed forces, giving him rank and awards, and then letting him command a tank unit. yet
another shining example of what we've been taught about WW2 has been lies.]

[Above: Romanian soldiers on the Eastern Front. Until the fiery end days of WW2, Romania
was a staunch ally of Germay and the Axis. Eventually, like all of Eastern Europe, the
communist death machine would pour into the region, resulting in utter chaos and treachery.
Many Romanian and German soldiers would have to fight their way out of the country as the
communists gained control and ordered that Romanian guns be turned on their former Axis
allies.]

[Above: Knut Hamsun (August 4, 1859 February 19, 1952). Amazing Norwegian author
who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920. Over a period of seventy years he
published more than 20 novels, poetry, short stories, plays, a travelogue, and essays. His
classic 1890 novel 'Hunger' being one of my all-time favorites. Hamsun was a father and
pioneer of many styles of writing. Ernest Hemingway even stated that 'Hamsun taught me to
write'.
During World War II, Hamsun strongly supported the German war-effort and even met with
Adolf Hitler several times. After one occasion of meeting with Hitler he told an adjutant 'Tell
Hitler we believe in him'. In 1940 he wrote that 'the Germans are fighting for us'. Hamsun
also met with Joseph Goebbels, whom had a deep respect for Hamsun. Upon returning to his
native Norway, Hamsun sent his Nobel prize to Goebbels! Saying that he deserved it for all
his work. Hamsun also met with soldiers on various fronts, including U-boat crews.

On June 14, 1945 Knut Hamsun was arrested for 'the commission of acts of treason'. Since he
was such a famous and beloved author, and due to his advanced age, he was committed to
Grimstad, which was basically an insane asylum (see Ezra Pound). I guess if you're too
famous to be thrown in a dungeon they like to throw you in an insane asylum, after all, you'd
have to be crazy to have a different opinion than those in power, right? In 1947 he was tried
and fined an absurdly huge amount of 575,000 Kroner. The powers-that-be effectively
destroyed this great author's name for many decades after WW2. Only in recent years have
Norwegians been given 'permission' to enjoy his timeless works again. Having an opinion in
a democratic country can be very dangerous...]

+ IRAN +

[Above: Another little known supporter of the Axis cause was Iran. Like its neighbor Iraq, it
even joined sides with the Germans, but was invaded shortly after by the British, who wished
to retain its colonial enslavement of the region. Although the pictures seen here are from
post-WW2, there were many National Socialists in Iran during the war (and still are to this
day). One of the most notable was Dr. Davud Monshizadeh, who may have even fought in
the Battle of Berlin! Monshizadeh would later help form the National Socialist Iranian
Workers Party called 'SUMKA' (from the acronym of 'Hezb-e Sosialist-e Melli-ye Kargarane Iran' in Parsi language).]

[Above: Dr. Davud Monshizadeh]

+ HUNGARY +
Hungary's contribution to the Axis war effort was considerable. Below are figures, researched
by the historian Antonio Munoz, detailing this.
1) 150,000 men of the 'Arrow Cross' and 'Levente Youth Organization.'
2) 310,000 Honved (Hungarian Army) personnel
3) 17,000 Hungarian personnel of the police and Gendarmerie.
4) 42,000 men of the 25th SS and 26th SS Infantry Division.
5) 14,000 men of the 22nd SS Volunteer Cavalry Division 'Maria Theresa.' 6) 8-11,000 men
of the 31st SS Volunteer Grenadier Division 'Batschka.'
7) 3,500 men of the 1st Hungarian Battalion.
8) 5,000 men of the SS Brigade 'Ney.'
9) 250,000 Hungarian ethnic Germans.

+ SLOVAKIA +
[Slovakia gained its independence from Czechoslovakia with the aid of Germany in March of
1939. The Slovaks, like the ethnic Germans of Czechoslovakia, were not being represented in
local or national government and being discriminated against in education, jobs, and the
distribution of public funds. To illustrate Czechoslovakia's 'nationalities problem', consider
this 1930 census of the country. This showed a total population of 14,730,000, made up as
follows:
Czechs - 7,447,000
Germans - 3,218,000
Slovaks - 2,309,000
Magyars (Hungarians) - 720,000
Ruthenes - 569,000
Poles - 100,000
Others - 266,000
This sort of ethnic, cultural and religious diversity caused chronic problems and conflict.
Technically the Slovaks shared with the Czechs the status of 'people of the state', as distinct
from other minorities. When the Slovak people finally got their own independent state it was
short-lived, a mere six years (1939-1945). The invading communist armies merged Slovakia
with Czechoslovakia once again. It wasn't until January 1, 1993 that Slovakia would be a
country again.]

[Above: An extravagant German American Bund rally.]

[Above: Letters from Americans not wanting to get involved in a European war poured into
the senate mail room at a rate of more than 200,000 a day! Americans were overwhelmingly
pro-neutrality during the first years of WW2. In 1940 president Roosevelt won reelection on
the promise: "While I am talking to you mothers and fathers, I give you one more assurance. I
have said this before but I shall say it again and again and again. Your boys are not going to
be sent into any foreign wars." But he lied. The powers-that-be wanted nothing more than to
destroy Germany. Like usual, the American government and media did everything they could
to get America involved in the war, eventually instigating the bombing of Pearl Harbor
(which it is now admitted the president knew about before hand.)]

[Above: Here a giant postcard bears the peaceful sentiments of 700 Iowans who signed it and
sent to their senator.]

[Above: Ezra Pound (October 30, 1885 November 1, 1972). Often called the 'Father of
Modern Poetry', although born in the territory of Idaho, Pound lived in England during WW1,
where he was outraged and disgusted by the millions of senseless deaths of the war. He
blamed the war on usury and international capitalism. He moved to Italy in 1924 and
throughout the 1930s and 1940s he supported Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler. He also
wrote articles for the publication 'Action' which was owned by British Fascist Oswald
Mosley. In Mosley's newspaper he wrote that the English were a slave race governed by the
Rothschilds since Waterloo.
Pound got a job as a broadcaster working for the Italian government during WW2, where he
made hundreds of broadcasts. Pound wrote in 'The Japan Times' that 'Democracy is now
currently defined in Europe as a 'country run by Jews'.

[Above: Ezra Pound's mugshot after being arrested by the Americans.]


Pound was arrested for treason by the United States after the war. He spent many months in
detention in a U.S. military concentration camp in Pisa, where for twenty five days he was
locked in a 6X6 foot outdoor steel cage lit up all night by floodlights. There in what was
known as the 'death cells' he endured isolation in the unrelenting heat, denied exercise, his
eyes inflamed by dust and dirt, no bed, no belt or shoelaces, and no communication with
anyone, not even the guards. This barbarous treatment triggered a mental breakdown and he
was deemed unfit to stand trial. He would spend the next twelve years locked away in St.
Elizabeths psychiatric hospital, released in 1958.
On May 8, 1945, the day Germany surrendered, while in captivity, he told the Philadelphia
Record that Hitler was 'a Jeanne d'Arc, a saint'...
One cannot sum up the life and doings of Ezra Pound in a few paragraphs, volumes and
volumes would be needed. But I'll end this with a quote from Ernest Hemingway about
Pound: 'The best of Pound's writing... will last as long as there is any literature."]

[Above: Sir Oswald Mosley]


The British Union of Fascists, founded in the early 1930's by Sir Oswald Mosley. He left
his postitions as a member of British parliment and chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster to
form the B.U.F., which became a popular and formidable party.
Quite a few notable personalities of Britain joined him, among them:
Major General J.F.C. Fuller, historian; Francis Yeats-Brown, the author; Lord Rothermere,
the publisher of popular newspaper the Daily Mail; Sir Willian Morris, owner of Morris
Motors; Sir Henry Deterding, chairman of the Dutch Oil Company; Viscount Lymington;
Admiral Sir Barry Domville; B. Philby, a famous explorer; the Earl of Glasgow and Walter
Runciman, both brothers-in-law of Sir Thomas Inskip the Minster of Defense.
Not to mention the great William Joyce, who became his propagandist.
Mosley met with various heads of state, including Adolf Hitler.
It is said that King Edward the VIII was a large financial supporter of the British Union of
Fascists.
'Not on grounds of race or religion, but on the fundamental principal of Fascism, we declare
that we will not tolerate an organized community within the state which owes allegiance not
to Britain, but to another race in foreign countries... We shall not fight Germany again in a
Jewish quarrel.' -Oswald Mosley, October 1934, at Albert Hall

[Above: Sir Oswald Mosley addresses a meeting held in Albert Hall April 22, 1934.

meetings ever held.]

+ SWEDEN +
There are several different estimates by historians regarding the numbers of Swedish
volunteers to the Axis war effort. Most estimates place the number between 150 and 330.
These brave men, leaving behind the safety of their neutral country, served in the 5th SSPanzer Division Wiking, the 11th SS-Freiwilligen Panzergrenadier Division Nordland and

the 23rd SS-Freiwilligen Panzergrenadier Division Nederland. Valiant Swedes were even
amongst the last defenders of Berlin.

+ SWITZERLAND +
Between 700 and 800 Swiss volunteers served in the Waffen-SS, approximately 300 of
them being killed in action. Most served in the SS-Panzer Division Wiking and SS-Standarte
Kurt Eggers, which was a war reporters' unit usually assigned to report on the activities of

their respective national kinsmen. Kurt Eggers was a former editor of the famous SS
magazine 'Das Schwarz Korps' who was killed in action in 1943 while serving in Wiking.

[Above: Even Switzerland had its own Nazi party, the NSSAP. Here is an postcard of the
NSSAP with governmental swastika ban stamps. The Swiss government banned the use of
swastikas and other political group's symbols. Here stamps have been applied by the
authorities to block the swastika imagery. They basically say that the 'hakenkreuz' is
forbidden.]

+ ALBANIA +
Over six thousand Albanian volunteers made up the 21st SS Division Skanderbeg. This
division was a Waffen SS division set up by Heinrich Himmler in March 1944, officially
under the title of the 21st Waffen-Gebirgs Division der SS Skanderbeg (Albanische Nr. 1). It
was named after Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg, the national hero of Albanian who resisted
Ottoman invasion for 25 years.

Iraq was an Axis ally led by Rashid Ali al-Gaylani, who was first appointed Prime Minister
in 1933, and again on March 31, 1940, and yet again in 1941, after a successful coup d'tat
against the British puppet government. The Iraqi people fought the British but were
unsuccessful and the puppet government was returned to power. Rashid Ali al-Gaylani fled to
Persia (Iran), which was also soon invaded by Britain and the Soviet Union, whom were
intent on removing the pro-German government there as well. Eventually al-Gaylani fled
with his family to Berlin, where he was received by Adolf Hitler and was recognized as the
leader of the Iraqi government in exile.

+ TURKEY +
Turkey was an ally to Germany in World War One, and was an important raw materials
trade partner with Germany during World War Two, only stopping after being threatened
repeatedly by the Allies in 1944. Turkey and Germany signed a Treaty of Friendship in June
of 1941. In the picture below Germany's ambassador Franz von Papen visits Turkey.

Austria, Turkey and Bulgaria, whom were allies in WWI. The bottom of the stamp pledges
their enduring alliance.]

+ BRAZIL +
The Fascist movement in Brazil was founded by Plnio Salgado and had widespread
support from not only Italian immigrants and the large Portuguese community, but also from
lower and middle class Brazilians and the military. The movement's paramilitary arm wore
green shirts and conducted highly organized marches and demonstrations. The Roman salute
was accompanied by the word 'Anau', which means 'you are my brother'. The Greek letter
sigma was the movement's official symbol.

[Above: Plnio Salgado (2-22-1895 12-8-1975) was a Brazilian politician, journalist, writer,
and theologian. He founded and led an organization called the 'Brazilian Integralist Action' a
political party inspired by the Italian Fascist movement. Salgado was active in politics until a
year before his death. He wrote several books, including a novel in 1926 titled 'The Stranger'
and 'Literature and Politics' shortly after.]

+ PHILIPPINES +
It is little known that there were many Filipino people who welcomed Japan as liberators.
There were popular movements for Filipino independence from American colonial rule, of
which Benigno Ramos, an ex-teacher and politician, was at the forefront.

[Above: Benigno Ramos (1893?) headed the Sakdalista movement and in May of 1935 he
led over 20,000 of his followers in a revolt against the Quezon puppet government. The
uprising ended in failure and Ramos went into exile in Japan. He returned to the Philippines
in 1938 and became the leader of the Ganap Party. After the Japanese liberated the
Philippines from American rule he formed the Makapili, a militant youth movement. One of
the aims of Makapili was to provide Filipino soldiers for Japan. In late December of 1944 his
followers and those of his ally Artemio Ricarte were armed by the Japanese. Unfortunately it
is not known how, when or where Ramos' died. Some say he died in a plane crash with
retreating Japanese soldiers.]

+ CHILE +
In 1932 Jorge Gonzlez von Mares founded the 'Movimiento Nacional Socialista de Chile'
(National Socialist Movement of Chile). On September 5, 1938 Mares organized a failed
coup attempt which ended in 58 young people being shot to death by police. This was later
known as the 'Seguro Obrero Massacre'. National Socialists in Chile today, and those
worldwide remember these young National Socialists as martyrs. Famed Chilean author
Miguel Serrano speaks reverently of these martyrs in his books. Mares was sentenced to 20
years imprisonment for his role in the coup attempt, but was later pardoned by President
Aguirre.

a Chilean political figure and author.]

+ CANADA +
Canada had a considerable Fascist movement during the years proceeding WW2. The most
notable figure is Adrien Arcand, a journalist and leader of a series of Fascist political
movements. On May 30, 1940 he was arrested in Montreal as a 'security threat' and detained
for the duration of the war. Arresting and detaining anyone with an opposing viewpoint was
very common amongst the Allied nations during World War Two, and in the case of the
Japanese in America, an entire race was sent to concentration camps. As per usual in the
democratic Allied nations, Arcand's organization, the 'National Unity Party' was banned.

[Above: Adrien Arcand (October 3, 1899 - August 1, 1967). After the war Arcand ran in
several elections, garnering 39% of the vote in one. It is said that he was a mentor of the
highly persecuted Canadian author Ernst Zndel. On November 14, 1965, just two years
before his death, Arcand gave a speech before a crowd of 650 people from all over Canada at
the Centre Paul-Sauv in Montreal. Arcand was a fervent supporter of Adolf Hitler, never
wavering in his beliefs.]

[Above: A swearing in ceremony of The National Unity Party, circa 1939. Before official
party meetings, the following oath was proclaimed:
'Moved by the unshakable faith in God, a profound love for Canada, ardent sentiments of
patriotism and nationalism,
a complete loyalty and devotion toward our Gracious Sovereign who forms the recognized
principle of active authority,
a complete respect for the British North America Act, for the maintenance of order,
for national prosperity, for national unity, for national honour, for the progress and the

happiness of a greater Canada,


I pledge solemnly and explicitly to serve my party. I pledge myself to propagate the principles
of its program. I pledge myself to follow its regulation.
I pledge myself to obey my leaders. Hail the party! Hail our Leader!']

+ FREE CORPS +

[Above: This photo was taken by Heinrich Hoffmann (whom would later become Hitler's
official photographer) in May 1919. It is of 'Mohamed Husen' in Munich. Husen was a highly
decorated officer who served in East Africa with the Germans and later with a Freikorps unit.
The inscription on the photo reads in part 'To the battles: Munich. A loyal East African
fighter.' It is surprising and very interesting that blacks were amongst those World War One
veterans fighting for change amidst post-war Germany/Austria.]
