There are still many unexplained things about World War 2 like where is Blutfahne and how is the Nagasaki Arch still standing? Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 4. Nagasaki Arch On August 6, 1945 Americans dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, completely leveling the city in the process. And not long after was Nagasaki. So how in the world did this arch survive an atomic blast? The object known as a torii in the photo is commonly found at the entrance of a Shinto shrine and is normally made of wood or stone. It was unknown exactly which of the two cities this photo was taken. The entire city of Nagasaki was reduced to rubble and the Japanese surrendered not long after. Some sources claim that the arch was only 1 kilometer away from the epicenter of the blast. Arches are known to be sturdy but what do you think happened here? 3. Operation Mincemeat One of the biggest mysteries of World War II happened during Operation Mincemeat. This was the allied plan to dress up a dead body as a British officer who carried fake invasion plans in order to deceive the Nazis. Knowing that the fake documents would eventually end up into the hands of the enemy, the allies said they were going to invade Greece next in order to draw enemy troops away from where they really wanted to invade; Sicily. But who exactly would they use as the dead body decoy? Most people say he was just a homeless Welsh man who died after drinking rat poison. Many firmly believe that this wasn’t the case and the people behind the operation wanted it to be as realistic as possible. They needed the body to look like it crashed at sea. Some claim the used the body of a dead sailor, John Melville. It still remains a mystery of which body they actually used. 2. The Nazi Angel of Death A Nazi doctor by the name of Joseph Mengele conducted human experiments at Auschwitz, had the sole mission of uncovering genetic mutations found in twins. He wanted to use these discoveries to expand the Aryan race birthrate in Germany and maybe elsewhere...He felt that finding a way a mother could produce more twins would be key. After countless cruel experiments, Joseph fled to South America when the Red Army was making their way to invade. Historians claim Joseph used what he learned from researching twins, when he settled in a small town in Brazil which soon became highly populated with twins and blonde haired blue-eyed children. He became known as the town medic and would especially help pregnant women. This would give him the nickname angel of death when they uncovered he was a Nazi war criminal. Many still believe he carried out his genetic experimentation on the city Candido Godoi. As many as 1 in 5 births in this city resulted in twins. Skeptics claim it was just something in the water. What do you believe? 1.Nazi Temple of Doom This sounds like somewhere you might want to avoid. The Nazi temple of doom was Heinrich Himmler's personal fortress and many bizarre rituals took place here that remain a mystery. Located in the northwest part of Germany, it was also known as the Wewelsburg Castle and legend has it; accused witches were tortured and executed within its walls during the 17th century. Himmler was also obsessed with the supernatural realm, possessing rare artifacts associating with Celtic culture. A jeweller in Munich was instructed to create an elaborate cauldron with Celtic carvings made of 22 pounds of pure gold, specifically for this castle. This was found at the bottom of a lake on the opposite of Germany in Bavaria so allied forces couldn’t plunder it. He also built his own round table and attempted recreate the legendary scene of King Author. He appointed 12 high ranking SS officers to serve as his Knights. Cult like ceremonies were believed to have taken place here, as well discussing battle plans, SS weddings, and spiritually preparing SS officers for the battle ahead. The details of what exactly took place still remains a huge mystery..
This video is part of History Lessons, a series dedicated to exploring historical events and examining their meaning in the context of foreign relations today: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLF2F38E5941910270 The Munich Agreement is one of the most criticized diplomatic agreements in history. In 1938, Adolf Hitler turned his sights on absorbing the Sudetenland, the part of Czechoslovakia dominated by ethnic Germans, into Germany. With tensions rising, British prime minister Neville Chamberlain rushed to Germany in September for talks to keep the continent at peace. Without consulting with Czechoslovakian leaders, he agreed to Hitler's demand, a decision that was ultimately formalized when Germany, Britain, France, and Italy signed the Munich Agreement on September 30. Chamberlain returned from Munich proclaiming that he had achieved "peace for our time." He was wrong. Less than a year later, German troops invaded Poland. The Second World War had begun. James M. Lindsay, CFR's senior vice president and director of studies, highlights the lesson learned from the Munich Agreement: Appeasing an adversary's demands may defuse a crisis, but it can also increase the chances of war by emboldening that adversary to demand more. Chamberlain thought that if Germany gained the Sudetenland that Hitler would finally be satisfied with the status quo in Europe. But Hitler instead viewed Munich as confirming his belief that Britain and France both lacked the will to stop German expansion. Lindsay invites his audience to consider on what issue or conflict the United States might repeat Chamberlain's mistake. For more analysis from James M. Lindsay, visit The Water's Edge blog: http://blogs.cfr.org/lindsay/
This is the FULL announcement of Declaration Of War made by Neville Chamberlain on 3 September 1939. It was broadcast on BBC Radio at 11:15am, 15 minutes after the British deadline for Germany to withdraw from Poland had passed. After Chamberlain speaks, church bells ring for a short time and then Government public service messages are broadcast.

PLEASE SEE my FAMOUS SPEECHES playlist http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL78ECFC002828B841 On September 1, 1939 German troops swarmed across the Polish border and unleashed the first Blitzkrieg the world had seen. Hitler had been planning his attack since March - ever since German troops occupied the remainder of Czechoslovakia. The Poles suspected as much and readied their defenses. Unfortunately the Poles based their defensive strategy on the experiences of World War I. Mobility was crucial - mobility provided by cavalry troops the Poles considered the best in the world. Indeed, their horsemen were probably the world's best - but horses offered little defense against tanks. Britain and France had sworn to defend Poland. Honoring these obligations, the two countries sent ultimatums to Hitler demanding his withdrawal from Poland. Hitler declined to respond. On September 3, Prime Minister Chamberlain went to the airwaves to announce to the British people that a state of war existed between their country and Germany. World War II had begun. Unfortunately Chamberlain's action was little help to the Poles. German troops advanced steadily. The final blow came on September 17 when Soviet forces under terms of a secret agreement with Germany marched into Poland from the East. Warsaw surrendered on September 27. By October 6, it was all over. Poland had ceased to exist as a country.

Neville Chamberlain is one of the most reviled figures of the 20th Century. His story is fondly repeated, and is treated as if it is universally applicable. Every foreign policy challenge is related back to his failure to be tough. This week we let the man himself explain why this is crazy.
