I have often wondered if George Lucas knew more than he ever revealed, when in 2001, he wrote Episode II of the Star Wars saga ‘Attack of the Clones.’
The movie bears a striking resemblance to a true event that lives on as one of the most striking images of recent history.
But, putting the imagery aside, and looking beyond the mainstream historians version, some quite astonishing questions have started to surface.
I shall leave it to the reader to draw their own conclusions, but anything they can imagine is probably nowhere near what I believe to be the truth.
At the close of World War I in 1919, and under the terms of the Versailles Treaty, Germany as a country was allowed to keep only 100,000 men in the Army and 15,000 in their Navy.
They were not permitted to have submarines nor military aircraft.
This situation remained stagnant for the next 14 years until Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, and then, in March of 1935, he began instituted conscription and renewed military training in open violation of the treaty.
To achieve his goal of a new, independent and unified Germany, it would need a bright new army of young, efficient, well-trained storm troopers numbering in the millions.
In 1933 that seemed like an impossibility, since the army then consisted mainly of 100,000 ageing, dispirited veterans of WWI, and a handful of recruits with little or no battle experience.
It seemed especially hopeless in view of the depressed economic conditions in Germany at that time.
Yet, by September of the next year, only six months before conscription began, at the Nuremberg Nazi Rally of 1934, over 160,000 stalwart German soldiers with backpacks, helmets and rifles stood silently at attention in precise ranks.
Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler and SA chief Viktor Lutze were filmed walking down the wide center aisle towards flaming columns bordering a gigantic wreath honoring German soldiers killed in battle.
This awe-inspiring scene was captured in the now famous documentary, ‘Triumph of the Will’ by legendary film photographer Leni Riefen-stahl.
So Where did those 160,000 physically perfect young soldiers come from?
In October of 1935, Hitler supplied an answer of sorts to that very question, when he made it public that he had kept 21 infantry divisions “under wraps” in 1934, and he announced that they would now become the core of the new German army……The Wehrmacht.
So that explains where the 160,000 troops came from, but where did the 21 divisions come from?
An infantry division can be as many as 20,000 troops, so it seems that somehow Hitler had got his hands on an instant army of about 500,000 soldiers, with no explanation of where they came from or how they had been trained.
He further announced that an additional 21 divisions would soon be added.
Bearing that in mind, my question is, how was it possible for all this to be accomplished in just one year?
It has already been established that the planning for World War II probably began in the early part of the century.
It is also a matter of mainstream historical record, that Germany were far more technologically advanced than any nation on earth, and many ‘secret projects’ were acquired by the Allies following Hitler’s defeat.
Many of these projects were not just futuristic weaponry designs, but also human experimentation decades in advance of anything the Allies had even believed possible.
So my original question remains.
Was Hitler’s brand new army secretly growing up in secret locations in Germany, at the same time as soldiers of many European nations were dying by the millions on the battlefields of Europe?
Or is the real answer locked away in highly classified files and laboratories of the victorious countries and still being utilised for a similar purpose ?
