Story: When Hitler started World War 2 he was able to drive out the Allies and conquer all of Europe. But in 1944 Eisenhower led the Allied armies and they invaded Europe and forced the Nazis to eventually surrender. Fifty million people died in the war because Hitler thought that Germans were meant to rule the world as they were the "Aryan Race" and all others were inferior to them and only fit to be their Servants and workers. A sort on Untermensch as they arrogantly liked to call Jewish people. The Nazis were a depraved bunch. 004962
