Truth for Germany: The Guilt Question of the Second World War
By Udo Walendy. For seven decades, the mainstream historical establishment has insisted that World War II was started by Germany. But what facts exist to support this seemingly unchallengeable hypothesis?
In Truth for Germany: The Guilt Question of the Second World War, the myth of Germany’s guilt for fomenting the Second World War is refuted by famed German historian Udo Walendy.
For 21 years Truth for Germany was kept on the index for banned books by the Federal Review Office for Youth-Endangering Publications of Germany. After a trial of 21 months the book was released in 1995.
Future historical research will amplify the facts compiled in this book, but mainstream historians can no longer claim they are non-existent or irrelevant.
There is available to the public today a great number of documents, both from home and abroad, on the foreign policies of the Great Powers before September 1939, as well as a wealth of literature in the form of memoirs of the persons directly involved in the decisions that would lead to the outbreak of World War II.
Together, they make possible a mosaic-like reconstruction of the events before the outbreak of the war in 1939.
One can assume that the Victor Powers, starting in 1945, have sifted through the German archives for all the documents incriminating Germany, and during the following years have utilized and published them. It is, therefore, to be expected that the hitherto unpublished documents from the Reich government contain material possibly exonerating Germany.
The same would apply to the still unavailable secret archive material of the Allies in East and West.
This book, demonstrating in concentrated format the happenings arising from the manifold connections before the outbreak of the war in Europe in 1939, cannot be glibly brushed aside with the reproach of being “tendentious.”
“Tendentiousness” always presupposes unscientific and unscholarly workings, at random, “intuitive guesswork,” “interpretation,” insufficient knowledge of sources and the attempt of imposing a “biased” objective.
This book has been published only after an intensive study of sources, taking the greatest care to avoid all guesswork interpretations. It serves not any one particular party, nor is it meant solely for the German people; the aim, rather, is to contribute toward a new understanding and cognizance for mankind.
