As I recall, Germany did not attack us first in World War II. I believe that the first time that Americans and Germans clashed in World War Ii, it was during an American "sneak attack".

And while the Germans never killed a single American civilian. the U.S. deliberately targeted, and killed, hundreds of thousands of German civilians. I suppose the theory was that they would then not support the war, and thus vote their politicians out of office).

We've wandered pretty far off-topic.

yeah. They were attacking U.S. shipping to Britain long before Germany declared on us as part of the Tri-Partite Pact.

The first U.S. attacks against Germany took place long before Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese and war was declared on Germany. The first American attack on Germans forces was on April 10, 1941 when the USS Niblack attacked a German U-boat. And U.S. forces attacked again in September, when the USCGC Northland on September 14, 1941, destroyed a German weather station in northeast Greenland. These attacks by U.S. forces took place before any German attacks on U.S.-flagged ships.

Fascinating.

The American Bund was active on Long Island where I lived for more than 50 years. In fact, they purchased land out east (I think in the eastern part of the Town Of Brooklhaven) to build some sort of "camp" and named the roads after prominent German Nazis. Although the camp was never built, the maps with those names is still on file with the Town Clerk.

Also, in a famous incident, a German U-Boat landed German sabateurs on Long Island, and they rode the Long island Rail Road into the city to commit their foul deeds (they were all captured by the F.B.I.)

And William Patrick Hitler,(nephew of you-know-who) lived a few blocks from me on Long Island until his death. Two of his four sons still live in the house. I was very surprised to learn this just a few years ago (I'm an amateur WWII historian), They live just 3 doors down from a friend of mine whom I used to hang out with at The Bunk House. Awhile ago, there was a tv show about them on The Discovery Channel, although they didn't specify exactly where they live.(Their address is not difficult to find on the web).

Their influence extended well into the U.S. educational system in the form of Deutsche Vereinen through the volksdeutscher.

Against 11,000 tanks and a, by then, fully industrialized Russia? They beat us to Berlin.

Your dad and his buddies should have drunk less beer.
