I never thought about that in regards to Yugoslavia. That’s a great point though. It all goes back to the failed Italian invasion of Greece I think. Amazing that even von Ribbentrop tried to talk him out of it since von Ribbentrop is often reported to be one of the dimmer Nazis and a Hitler yes-man.

As much of a bootlicking imbecile as Ribbentrop was, I think it penetrated even his rather dull mind that declaring war on the USA would most likely produce the same outcome as WWI - ie, defeat.

I was talking about historical figures, and I showed my class a photo of Stalin as a young man - the girls swooned.

Until they found it who it was, LOL.
