Absurd. These counts were not done for any propaganda purpose. They were just count totals.Karl Heidenreich wrote:
No one is claiming they are fake. They could have been politically manipulated but not fake. My point is that more recent studies, with more material and calm study, shows different results.
Why would the SHAEF Intelligence section lie about the number of POW's? What would they gain?
Perhaps they were stealing the rations issued for the phantom (you claim) prisoners!
Obvious to you because you simply can not accept the reality of mass surrender of German troops. I note the complete lack of anything resembling a checkable fact.Karl Heidenreich wrote: It´s obvious that those that made these studies have gone through the primary information, which is why people as Glantz, House, Beevor, Keegan, Mosier, Krivoshiev have been allowed to publish their results in prestigious universty editors.
Using the data supplied in a post above:
There were 9,580,000+ men in Wehrmacht Service in 1942.
There were 9,701,000+ men in Wehrmacht service in 1945.
You would be claiming no German POW's taken between 1942-45, no dead and no wounded.
That is how flawed your argument is.
Several people have tried to point this out to you but you plough on with your obstinate refusal to face facts.
Let me remind you of the German POW totals by the nation holding them:
Great Britain 3,640,000
