    You had to use a PS1 image to show the castle? Wouldn't a Return to Castle Wolfestein pic worked just as well?

    Well this is absolutely better than anything the history channel has shown me.

    "How do you have to be smart to orchestrate the Holocaust?" If you have to ask that question then it seems unlikely you even understand what the Holocaust was or how it was implemented. I'd have simply not bothered commenting.

    Liked the article. I love history and some of that WWII stuff was new to me.

    wow way to make one of the worst things to happen to the world sound like a joke.

    @Schuultz: You're absolutely right; thanks for pointing out the errors, and for doing so constructively. I appreciate the corrections. However, the "doubtful" thing regarding the Spear was deliberate understatement on my part. Also, whether or not Himmler was the brains behind the Holocaust, he nevertheless oversaw it, so the distinction is iffy. At any rate, the article's about his occult fixations, not his role in the slaughter of millions. Again, thanks for reading and for helping with the fixes.

    It's obvious a lot of effort and research went into this article. Great work. The more I hear about the Nazi the more they sound like fictional supervillains than an acctual army.

    This had some great tidbits in it! Awesome article.

    Sorry, Mikel, but there's a couple of things in your article that simply aren't right: Regarding the Spear of Destiny: You wrote that it is 'doubtful that he started the war to get it'. Well, it's not only doubtful, it's impossible and unnecessary, as he had already annexed Austria before the War ever started. There are, however, accounts that claim that, when Hitler it, he believed that the spear had ordered him to conquer the world. But that's years before he ever even became the Dictator of Germany. 2. The Thule Society did not turn into the Nazi Party. They supported the DAP, the party which would much later turn into the NSDAP (which are the Nazis), in an attempt to turn them into 'Believers'. But with a few exceptions, that didn't work. (Himmler wasn't one of these, he got these ideas by himself) 3. Women were allowed to fight, though not as frontline troops. They were part of the Air Guard, which consisted of Women, Hitler Youth and Elderly, and was handling the Anti-Air weaponry. Later on, these Anti-Air weapons, namely the famous Flak 88, would often be used as an Anti-Tank weapon, by these people, too. 4. Nowadays, many historians agree that Himmler actually wasn't smart enough to orchestrate the Holocaust. This crime goes to Heydrich, who was Himmlers closest advisor. (A common joke back then was: 'Himmler's Hirn heisst Heydrich', meaning 'Himmler's brain's called Heydrich). Heydrich was killed during the war by two British-hired Polish assassins. That's all. Congratulations to anybody who made it through my wall of text, and even though there were some small flaws in it, it's still a great article!
