The classic work on the History of Philosophy, originally written in 1893.
The versions above have been edited in the way that chapters and sections are clickable, making the book easier to work with, using a navigation pane . Some major scanning omissions have been corrected, but there still is a myriad of tiny errors. Also there is no text in italics, since the text has been taken from the plain text version. So confer with the original pdf version when quoting: The original - Scanned version is here."This history of philosophy is perhaps the best around, although published initially in 1893. It is written in a clear and well-structured way both concerning the historical and systematic aspects. It is written with a Neo-Kantian perspective, so there is reason to take causion about the (in my opinion) to positive and lenghty discussion on Aristotle and Kant, who definitely are his heroes, as opposed to Plato and Leibniz. There are some points Windelband has not grasped, like the crucial role of hypothesis in the great divide of philosophy between materialism and idealism. Nevertheless, I find the book a true must for any inquiring person."

GENOCIDE of the Ethnic Germans in Yugoslavia 1944-1948 ( Word ) From a review:
"During the last ten years of the 20th century the whole world followed, with horror and detest, the terrible events in multi-ethnic Yugoslavia. .. 50 years earlier, in this very nation, a gruesome genocide, preplanned and directed by its highest leadership, took place. At that time ethnic German citizens of Yugoslavia were the victims, but the civilized world looked the other way.
After 1944, about 500,000 ethnic German citizens of Yugoslavia disappeared from their native land. Since Tito assumed power, and up to the deposition of MiloÅ¡ević, Yugoslavian historical writings with reference to their former ethnic German citizens contained only lies, concealment of crimes and disavowal of the genocide. During more than 50 years the systematic falsification of history was also practiced by Yugoslavian writers. Only now, after they have overcome dictatorship, local people are gradually beginning to ask that the truth be told. One purpose of the book is to help them in this endeavour. It is a terrible, cruel, truth; not a pleasant, but a necessary reading.
The ethnic Germans whose ancestors had been living since 1686 in the area of the middle Danube region, then part of Hungary which in turn was part of the Habsburg Empire and since 1918 was attached to Yugoslavia, are of the opinion that world conscience cannot remain silent about the crimes and atrocities committed against them. But without knowledge, conscience cannot be raised. In order for world consciousness to learn about their fate and bring it to its awareness, the facts of the genocide and committed atrocities have to be recollected: orgies of murder, confiscation of property, disfranchisement, shipment to concentration camps, planned annihilation by starvation, epidemics, and ethnic re-education of children. â€“ For that purpose, this book attempts to fight against suppression, concealment and forgetfulness.
... over many generations the Danube Swabians, as the majority of the ethnic Germans in Yugoslavia were called, lived peacefully among other nationalities in their native homelands which were incorporated in the newly created Yugoslavia after World War I.

Keeling, Ralph Franklin. (1947). GRUESOME HARVEST. The Costly Attempt To Exterminate The People of Germany, (Word - PDF) Chicago: INSTITUTE OF AMERICAN ECONOMICS
Keeling tells us why the USA changed from the Morgenthau policy to the Marshall plans. It is called COMPETITION - from the USSR. The French-, British- and US. Morgenthau policy had ruined almost totally what was left of Germany after WW II. In 1946 US then realised that they were pushing the Germans onto the lap of "Uncle Joe", Stalin. Marshall had to initiate a new policy to rearm Germany one year after she had been beaten, in order to create a bulwark against the USSR - just like European conservatives had tried to in the 1930s - before they turned against Germany.
Preface :"The change did not arise from any newly discovered fondness for our defeated subjects. ...
Belatedly, we had come to realize that while we were busily and blindly alienating the German people by carrying out one of the most brutal and terrifying peace programs ever inflicted on a defeated nation, Russia, who had been egging us on, was quietly preparing to come forward as their champion and to offer them an avenue of escape from us through the establishment of a unified, revived, and Communist Reich to be joined to the Soviet Union. This had been made clear by Molotov in July at Paris.
Germany is more than a mere pawn in the struggle for power between world ambitious Communist Russia and the West, she is the major price. World Communism has long coveted Germany as the brightest jewel in its crown. The Kremlin knows and we know that all Europe would have to fall before the combined might of a union between Soviet Russia and a resuscitated Reich.
Such an eventuality cannot be tolerated by Britain who, with a hostile Europe at her back, would find her very existence threatened. Nor could we countenance such a threat to England, because treatment of the British Isles as our first line of defense in the Atlantic is one of the imperatives of our present foreign policy.
Union between Soviet Russia and a sovietized Germany would mean war. To prevent war, we must therefore prevent the fruition of Russia's design. Hence, it becomes necessary that we attract Germany to our side and keep her there.The situation demands a thorough review of our German program ..."

Spaight (1877-1968) had been principal secretary of Britain's Air Ministry, and was among the most prolific British writer on airpower during the first half of the 20th century.
Richman quotes Spaight in his Killing Noncombatants:
" "it was we who started the strategic [i.e., civilian] bombing offensive" with the "splendid decision" of May 11, 1940. ... the German attack on Coventry, ... occurred six months later (on November 14, 1940). ... part of the British bombing strategy was apparently to provoke German attacks on England in order to stimulate support for total war against the Third Reich. The official Air Ministry volume, The Royal Air Force, 1939-1945: The Fight at Odds (1953), stated: "The attack on the Ruhr, in other words, was an informal invitation to the Luftwaffe to bomb London."

The book deals with British domestic policy but by extension it also deals with with the economic reasons for war with Germany, (as opposed to the invented reasons such as freedom, civilisation and democracy, which should have precluded the Western alliance with Stalin). The economic reasons concern for instance Germany's foreign barter system that evaded London's as a hub of international finance. The book also deals with the illegal incarceration of several thousand political activists in Britain during WW II.

How the Allied invasion of Norway (and Sweden) was planned and promoted by the French General Staff in March 1940 (before the German invasion in April 1940):
Excerpt from the Introduction:
"This report enables you to find out what really happened in connection with the Norwegian campaign.
You will learn, may be to your surprise, the British and French Governments planned to invade Norway and seize the ports and aerodromes on her west coast, but that they were so dilatory in their methods that Hitler decided to go there first. ...
A word about the documents. They came into my possession long before the end of the war, so I locked them up. They were captured by the Germans in 1940 at the town of La Charite and reproduced with a limited circulation in order to convince the French that "the capacity for action of the Allies did not measure up to the grandeur of the plan and that (these documents) reveal to a staggering extent the incapacity of the Allied politicians and military commanders".
I am bound to say that this German criticism had substance in 1940. For example, to quote from a document I have not included in this collection, it is hair-raising in retrospect to learn that on March 16th, 1940, General Gamelin in a Most Secret Memorandum, No. 325 Cab/D.N., was outlining plans to tighten up the blockade "in order to force Germany, through a combination of economic pressure and certain military operations, to emerge from her attitude of military expectancy".
It will be found (when all the records are available)â€”I have good reasons for saying thisâ€”that Mr. Neville Chamberlain was very anxious not to incite Hitler to emerge from his waiting attitude."
Excerpt from Footnote to News-Letter No. 196 (Written in December, 1945)
â€œIn the light of the documents published in this report Mr. Churchill's remark in his speech in the House of Commons on 11th April, 1940, takes on a new and fuller meaning. He said: "I must declare to the House that I feel we are greatly advantaged by what has occurred, provided we act with increasing and increasing vigour to turn to the utmost profit the strategic blunder into which our mortal enemy has been provoked." (Hansard, col. 749.)
PROVOKED seems in retrospect to have been the operative word!â€”K-H.

Hankey, Lord. (1950). POLITICS, TRIALS, AND ERRORS (Chapter IV, on Norway) - Scanned by Arno Mong Daastoel
An open-hearted and truly revealing biography by a first rank British diplomat of the WW I and WW II period. Lord Hankey was the main strategist behind the most effective British weapon in both these wars, as it had been during the Napoleonic Wars, the Atlantic blockade. This book "speaks freely where the official Norwegians are dumb".
Excerpts regarding the Nuremberg trials and the invasion of Norway:
"... the British Government began to plan their major offensive in Norway a fortnight before the Germans. ... The whole burden then of the Tribunal's account of this stage of the Norwegian campaign is to show that the Germans were already planning an act of aggression for which punishment must be meted out. They do not mention any of the evidence that the Allies were doing the same thing at the same time, indeed did so even before the Germans! ... By the end of the year 1939 the work of planning and preÂparation on both sides was far advanced; but still we find the Tribunal piling up the case against the Germans, while forgetting to consider how far it was conditioned by the Allies. (pp.71-72)
The story of the Norwegian Campaign, as told in the NuremÂberg Judgement, â€¦ it is not the whole truth. ... By adding the part of the story that has been omitted at the Trial it has been shown that, from the start of planning to the German invasion, both Great Britain and Germany were keeping more or less level in their plans and preparations. Britain actually started planning a little earlier, â€¦ Hitler, however, â€¦, held back as long as he dared. â€¦ the Nuremberg Tribunal, by describing only the German side of the campaign, went so grievously astray.
Imagine that the situation had been reversed, that Germany had won the war and had set up such a Tribunal, with the same Charter, to try its enemies: does anyone doubt the result, so far as the Norwegian campaign is concerned? â€¦ The operation would have been declared an act of aggression and everyone concerned in it â€” members of the War Cabinet, Chiefs of Staff, Joint Planning Committees,Admirals, Generals and Air Marshals galore would,would, on the Nuremberg analogy, have beentried, condemned and executed! â€¦ Politics and legal Trials of this sort do not mix. They are grievous errors for which we all pay dearly in years of waiting - waiting for a Peace which cannot be born of vengeance but must flow from justice." (pp.78-79)
The matter is much worse than what Hankey claims. Hankey forgets that Norway was not a neutral nation in practice, since she had allowed herself to be forced into an economic alliance with Great Britain (blockade, merchant fleet etc), thereby making a Germany invasion and occupation legal according to international law.

CHAPTER 6, THE OVERRUNNING OF NORWAY

(Reynaud was France's Prime Minister in 1940. This is his memories from this crucial time in the history of France, the excerpt concerns the period before the German invasion of Scandinavia and France/Be-Ne-Lux. He states that the German invasion of Scandinavia was deliberately provoked by France and Britain - in order to pull Scandinavia into the war on the side of the Western powers, spread the German forces and easy the pressure on France. Furthermore he states that Germany was deliberately provoked by France and Britain to invade Belgium and the Netherlands. Germany was provoked into action: "As we see, our Chief Command was very eager to bring us into the position of being the attacked."... "drive Germany out of her military waiting position", "We must ... win over Germany by strangulating her.")

("The Elverum Authorization - What was it") A legal discussion of the alleged Parliament authorization at Elverum to the Labour Government - later to be the Norwegian Government-in-exile in London.
This is a legal discussion of the legitimacy of the emergency authority presumably given by the Norwegian Parliament at a gathering at Elverum in April 1940, to the escaping Labour Government, later the exile-government in London during the remaining part of WW II. The conclusion is that there was no such emergency authority given, nor could it be given as the Constitution forbids it. The acts of that government were therefore illegal, as was the trials of treason after the war.
Brochman, B. Dybwad (1940), Den 9. april - Norge og verdensrevolusjonen, ( PDF ) Bergen: Eget forlag - - Scanned by Arno Mong Daastoel
("April the 9th. Norway and the World Revolution")
This book is something quite apart from the main stream, and should therefore be of interest as a more "neutral" non-partisan opinion on the matters in 1940. Brochmann holds, however, extremely clear opinions and takes a strong side for the occupying German force - for reasons that are thoroughly debated in this book. Brochmann crucifies the illegal and unconstitutional actions by the parliament's politicians, and discusses the traditional and unholy alliance between Labour, the State Lutheran Church and the Money Power. He attacks financial capitalism and promotes a moral productive system. He positions the centre of this outmoded system of privileges in London and debates the efforts of Germany to promote a world revolution in the interests of morality and the labouring man. Brochmann was tried for his opinions after the war, and was sentenced to 3,5 years of imprisonment.
Brochmann was the leader of a Christian "revival" party, Samfundspartiet, and was a representative member of the Norwegian Parliament. Brochmann is a harsh critic of both Marxism and the Capitalist system. At his time, Brochmann was the only representative who refused to receive salary for his work in the Parliament. He defended the Jewish people and was also the only representative who voted against a forced sterilisation of the Romani people. A man of principles.

Aall, Dr. Herman Harris & Prof. Nils Gjelsvik. (1932). Revolusjonspolitikk og norsk lov - Scanned by Arno Mong Daastoel
Preface by Knut Hamsun (Nobel Laureate in Literature) Word ("Revolution Policy and Norwegian Law")
A study of the the relationship between Norwegian revolutionary movements and the Norwegian Constitution, based on a Parliamentary Report on the revolutionary movements (Stortingsinnstilling nr. 184, 1932 )
This is also an important and well documented study of the policy of the Comintern (the international Communist organisation) and therefore of Stalin's international ambitions, thereby giving crucial background information for the pre-WW II events in Europe and the rest of the world. This makes e.g. F. D. Roosevelt's policy appear as embarrassingly naive, to say the least.
Regarding of the Norwegian case, the study documents in details how Norwegian politicians, Communists and Labour and the LO trade union federation, were directly subordinated to Moscow orders, also after Labour's so-called breach with Comintern in 1923. The study furthermore documents how the LO and the Labour party were paid huge sums by Moscow to advance revolution in Norway, and make her a Soviet "ally" with Russia (on one occasion alone, one 1 million crowns, or around 30 million US dollars in the year 2007, in a country with only 3 million people).
This study therefore argues, on the legal basis of the Norwegian Constitution and the Parliament report, that these revolutionaries therefore were traitors, in the service of a foreign power, and should be treated as such. Furthermore, the study criticises the other political parties that they are too submissive to these "Moscow servants".
This is a part of history that has simply been left out of official Norwegian history writing, and similarly so in the recent "revisionist" book by Lars Borgersrud's "Konspirasjon og kapitulasjon", which only looks at the coup-plans of "the other side", and which were minor in comparison to the Moscow plans.
To these plans should be added the invasion plans of the USSR against Scandinavia and northern Norway in particular, the so-called operation 'Reindeer' or 'Poro' in Russian, starting in 1932 and rehashed in 1935/36. (See Wikipedia and Axis forum).
A true classic and a mind-buster of a book is Dr. Carroll Quigley's Tragedy and Hope . Chapters 12 and 13 explain the events leading to WW II.
(This web version consists of excerpts) Dr. Carroll Quigley is best known as Bill Clinton's professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University. He also taught at Princeton and at Harvard. His 1300 page book "Tragedy and Hope" is unique among other history books in its exposure of the role of International Banking cabal behind-the-scenes in world affairs.
sweetliberty has digitalised a number of odd books under the title "How Wars are Made. BEHIND THE SCENES ".
Many of these books are definitely not politically correct, but well worth a look. Note the German White Book from 1939, and MP. Captain A.H.M. Ramsay's book The Nameless War. Michael Walsh's book Witnes to History consists a vast amount of truly astonishing quotes from acknowledged "authorities". His recent book Round One to the Barbarians (2005) is similarly remarkable, in spite of some repetitions etc.
