Re: Hand Grenade of the Month May 2017 - The Hitler Problem

Being mildly interested in this subject, having just read the post about Hitler and his aversion to military uses of gas but not civilian populations, to obtain his objectives, do not think any reason here to post further depth analysis or argument or discussion on the question.

It seems fairly presented on the points. There are a couple of other matters, related should like to set forth. Probably because this is military history, should not attempt to comment on the foreign policy issues, as per editorial request as well, they are not here central.
