my own thoughts on the July 20 plot

Post by Princess Perfume » 19 Apr 2018 20:05

the conspirators thought Germany could keep Austria, Danzig and the Sudetenland among other things in a peace settlement.

They also thought Germany could avoid a military occupation.

Mind you, the Japanese thought that they could keep Manchuria, Korea and Taiwan.

The July 20 conspirators were living in total fantasy land.

One knock-on effect of the coup succeeding will be that those Weimar-era politicians that were executed in the after-math will survive and be part of the post-war political world, which will have odd effects on the Bonn Republic and the GDR.
