So this is a basically an appreciation thread for Saddam?
Why don't you and your friend @Weezy start a thread to praise Hitler while you're at it?

Even Hitler can be admired for his charisma and the achievements he had at a certain period during the war. I mean blitzkrieg is a genius military technique that left the world bewildered

Well technically he had nothing to do with the blitzkrieg or other Wehrmacht strategies. All these strategies came from his generals and army commanders not from him. Many books were written to show how a failure he was in term of war strategy. He was neither Saladin, nor Napoleon, Julius Ceaser or Alexander the Great. The German army could have win many lost battles and even the war itself if it was not for Hitler's poor decision makig and short-sight. It's not the main topic of the thread so not going further about this, but he was far from a military genius. durig the last years of WWII he delayed for months the use of the Messerschmidt 262, the only supersonic aircraft in the world back then, for no valid reasons except his mistrust in the Luftwaffe commanders. An early use of a supersonic aircraft could have changed the result of he war.

You can’t blame him for not trusting the Luftwaffe after their failure in Dunkirk and in the Battle of Britain. But yea I agree he made some mistake that cost him the war, specially Stalingrad.

Still though he’s credit to removing Germany from its despair after WW1 and turning it into a super power that almost changed Europe we know today.
