There is a very interesting and well explained theory by the Russian historian Andrey Fursov about how Hitler tried to avoid war with the Soviet Union.
There are many reasons to believe that Adolf Hitler did not want to invade the USSR, yet he was pushed to do it by the Brits.
Not because he was some peaceful man, of course, but because he needed more time. He wasn’t ready and that’s why he tried to delay it as long as possible.
September 1st marks another anniversary on the official beginning of World War II (even though there are historians and military experts who rightfully believe that the war had started earlier). And to understand what really happened we should look at the events that had led to Hitlers invasion of Poland on that date.
You should also check our previous post in which Yakov Kedmi explains Poland’s role in WW2 to get even better understanding.
Fursov explains some things that give better clarity of the events, however his statements are not really popular because they reveal facts that hurt the perception of the World War 2 that’s widely spread in the West.
In the short video that we have included he basically covers the events between 1939 and 1941 that suggest that Nazi Germany was pushed to begin a war by Britain.
