World War 2 the Complete History :The stumble to War 1/6

This is a preview for a series on WWII, and that deserves more credit than that pitiful air time it had on PBS 10 years ago. Unlike other series on WWII such as the famous World at War series, it offers no interview, no war stories. It look at the big picture of the war from the view of macro history, and its impacts on us. I’ll upload the first episode on the interwar years, and the final episode on consequences of the war to get you started. The war itself however, you’ll have to discover yourself. This series is hard to find now, but is its still possible. If you own the copyright to this content, just PM me and I’ll take it down. Just please make it more available.

Nerve Agent History WWII

First discovered accidentally during the 1930s by industrial chemists in Germany conducting pesticide research, the nerve agents Tabun (GA) and Sarin (GB) were developed into chemical weapons and stockpiled by the Nazi regime. Fortunately, Hitler did not order their use during World War II because German intelligence believed–incorrectly–that the United States and the Soviet Union had developed similar weapons. After the war, the victorious Allies competed among themselves for the secrets of the Nazi nerve agent program. In the early 1950s, British industrial scientists accidentally discovered a second generation of nerve agents that were even more toxic than Sarin and were dubbed “V agents” because of their venomous (skin-penetrating) properties. During the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union pursued a chemical arms race in which they produced and stockpiled various nerve agents in the thousands of tons. For a detailed history for the general reader of the discovery, development, proliferation, and control of nerve agents such as Tabun, Sarin, Soman, and VX, read the 2006 book, War of Nerves: Chemical Warfare from World War I to Al-Qaeda, By Jonathan B. Tucker. During the 1960s, ocean dumping, openpit burning, and land burials were the US Armys method of destroying chemical weapons. In 1969, the National Academy of Sciences recommended that ocean dumping be avoided. In the late 1960s President Nixon halts the production of chemical weapons. In 1972, the

My Weekend was spent watching some great docos on History. Here they are neatly packaged in a video with annotation links. For it is important to know history and how it is still applied today. World War II: The Lost Color Archives World War II has been seen as a black and white war… until now! The scenes are authentic. The color is real. www.youtube.com Hitler in Colour This is a series of home movies and other color film showing the period of 1933 to the end of the war in color. The narration is mostly made up of quotes from diaries and speeches from the time. www.youtube.com The Last Secrets of the Axis Fascinating documentary about who was really pulling the strings for the Nazis and the Japanese in the second World War. The secret societies, the black dragons and spies in Pearl harbour www.youtube.com WORLD WAR 2 IN COLOUR This miniseries makes a point of presenting WWII in period color only, as opposed to the wealth of b&w material we have seen www.youtube.com The World At War The most compelling documentary series ever made concerning war. It’s tone offers a stark contrast to the often gung-ho attitude towards World War 2 that the media exhibits. Rather than opting for screaming about the horror of war, it allows Sir Laurence Olivier’s quiet voice to take a back seat to the true images of war www.youtube.com Dealers in Death 1934 Dealers in Death was a mid-1930s documentary designed to forewarn the public that a second World War would mean the end of civilization
