THE NAZI SOLDIERS

BY SAM SANTORO

THE LIFE OF THE NAZI SOLDIER

THE LIFE OF A NAZI SOLDIER WAS A VERY INTERESTING TOPIC. I THINK THIS BECAUSE THEY HAD TO DO WHAT THEY WERE TOLD TO DO WEATHER THEY LIKED IT OR NOT. THE NAZI SOLDIERS HAD TO DO MANY TERRIBLE THINGS BUT NOBODY KNOWS HOW THEY FELT ABOUT OR WHAT THEY WENT THROUGH. IT HAS SAID THAT THE NAZI SOLDIERS WERE TERRIBLE PEOPLE BUT DO YOU THINK THEY REALLY WANTED TO DO ALL THOSE THINGS THEY DID LIKE PUT THE JEWS IN THE GAS CHAMBERS,BURN THEM, AND MANY OTHER HORRIBLE THINGS. WELL I AM HERE TO TELL YOU MY PROSPECTIVE OF THERE LIVES.

THE CAMP

AT A YOUNG AGE TROOPS HAD TO GO TO THIS HITLER YOUTH CAMP WERE THEY WERE TAUGHT HOW TO DO THERE JOB AND SEE WHAT THERE SPECIALTY WAS LIKE GENERAL OR LEADER AND OTHER PLACES IN THE NAZI ARMY. BY THIS TIME THEY WERE 14 YEARS OLD TRAINING TO BECOME GENERALS AND TROOPS. AT THE CAMP THEY TAUGHT THEM THAT JEWS WERE UNFRIENDLY,UNDESIRABLE AND CERTAINLY NOT GERMANS. THE CAMP WAS HARSH OFTEN BOYS WERE WHIPPED AND TORTURED BECAUSE THEY WERE GETTING READY TO BECOME NAZI SOLDIERS. YOU DID NOT EAT VERY MUCH,YOU ATE WHAT WAS PROVIDED OR YOU DIDN'T EAT. YOU GOT LET OUT WHEN YOU WERE READY LIKE AROUND 21-25

THE OTHER THEORY

THE GERMAN MILITARY WAS SUPPLIED WITH MILLIONS METHAMPHETAMINE TABLETS DURING THE FIRST HALF OF WW2 AND OF 1940. THE DRUGS WERE OF A PLAN TO HELP THE PILOTS,SAILORS,AND TROOPS TO BE CAPABLE OF SUPERHUMAN PERFORMANCES. THE MILITARY LEADERSHIP WAS PREFORMING BETTER BUT THEY STARTED DRINKING AND BECOME INTOXICATED WHICH IS WHAT THE DRUG IS SUPPOSED TO DO WHICH TROOPS COULD ACHIEVE VICTORY. WHICH EXPLAINS THE FACT THAT THEY DID ALL THOSE THINGS TO THE JEWS.

POWERFUL LEADERS OF THE NAZI WAR

THROUGH OUT THE WAR THERE WERE MANY LEADERS IN THE NAZI ORGANISATION. SOME WERE MORE POWERFUL THEN OTHERS. LIKE HERMANN GOERING A WW1 VETERAN BECAME OBSESSED WITH THE DRUG THAT WAS POISONING THE TROOPS. HE MADE SURE THE SOLDIERS TOOK IT BEFORE EVERY BATTLE WHICH LEAD TO THE INCREASE NUMBERS IN BATTLES. ANOTHER NAZI LEADER WAS FRANZ STANGL. HE HATED THE JEWS AS MUCH AS HITLER HE WAS ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF THE CONCENTRATION CAMP.

RANKINGS OF TROOPS

THE RANKING WERE BASED ON THE BADGES OF THE TROOPS. SOME OF THE BADGES INCLUDED WERE BLOCKWART THE BEGINNING RANKING THE ZELLENWART THE MIDDLE RANKING, AND MANY OTHER HIGHER RANKS. THE RANKING WERE TO DETERMINE THE SOLDIERS FROM THE OTHERS.TO BE ON AGE TO BE THE HIGHEST RANK YOU HAD TO BE IN THE ARMY FOR 15YRS AND HAVE TO BE KNOW AS A LEADER THROUGH THE NAZI ARMY. TO BE GENERAL YOU HAD TO BE IN THE ARMY FOR 10 YEARS WHICH IS THE KREISLEITERN BADGE . THE RANKS HAD TO BE PASSED BY HITLER OR THE NAZI PARTY.

CONCLUSION

SO NOW YOU KNOW MY PROSPECTIVE OF THE NAZI SOLDIERS LIVES. THERE EARLY LIFE WAS HARD GOING TO THE HITLER YOUTH CAMP FOR MULTIPLE YEARS AT A TIME. THEN GOING TO GO OFF TO FIGHT AND KILL THE JEWS KNOWING THAT THIS WAS WRONG BUT WERE INTOXICATED BY HITLER AND THE NAZI PARTY TO DO TERRIBLE THINGS.
