20 years later and he looks like Goering.

Well I agree with your sentiment that this isn't exactly something you should want to be a part of, you have to remember that they were people.
Ignoring the SS, I tend to see the bulk of the Wehrmacht this way: Imagine your country was fighting a nationalistic war that's started to fall apart. You love your country, and no matter how abhorrent your government is, you're not fighting for your government, but for your country.
Pretty much imagine the post-9/11 bloodlust/patriotism, followed up by all of that falling apart on itself, and your home itself being directly threatened.
Assuming you're American, look at it this way. Say Obama/Bush/your party's antichrist gets us into a war and fucks up, and now foreign troops are directly threatening America. Sure, your government might be terrible and you may hate it, but you still want to protect America from the enemy.
Will post what few I can find, since I've been trying to motivate myself to organize my pic folder.
I would imagine that he would be comparing it to enlisting in the Marine Corps or some other sort of other armed forces branch after having had lost a family member / friend during the events of 9/11, believing "we're going to take the fight to them and kill us some sandniggers", when in reality they're getting a thumb up their arses to fight in a country who pleaded for help, then grew angry with us and made us leave, then when we left they claimed they needed us more than ever after the fucking 'trained' police forces were corrupt or too afraid to actually enforce the laws there.
If you really want to fight for 'your country' or 'family', you'd best be waiting on your couch with favored-weapon-of-choice pointed at the door to blast the unfortunate tweaker who decides to pay you a visit.
Hey! This isn't the Kriegsmarine thread! Its the Wehrmacht thread!......got any more?
>This isn't the Kriegsmarine thread! Its the Wehrmacht thread!.
Then by definition, it is also a Kreigsmarine thread.
>you will never ambush a cruiser with a converted merchantman
Needs to include the fact that Germany got completely bent over the barrel following the Armistice's signing. They went from having a solid empire to a pretty poor excuse of a republic. Not even considering the whole "stabbed in the back" theory, they were looking for any person/party/idea to reinvigorate their weakened national image and overall sense of pride. That coupled with the war debt, followed by the depression, which made the mark practically worthless, gave rise to the man who seemed to have the plan.
Even the less fervently nationalistic Germans who were skeptical of Nazism probably saw Hitler's rise as a better option than continuing the Weimar Republic
Slightly on topic, if anyone here hasn't seen Generation War, they need to go do that now.
You can refer to the Heer and Werhmacht as the same. Heer just means the whole German force. Like if you said, the US armed forces encompasses the Navy/Air force, Muhrines, army...
Come on, everybody loves kittens!
You are confusing "Heer" and "Wehrmacht".
