secret communications between the Soviets and their American agents during the war and the opening of Soviet Archives after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that FDR was virtually surrounded by pro-Soviet spies, dupes, operatives and agents of influence.

I always thought there was a lot of communists in the government. There still is. We have one in the White House now. Not much has changed.

The memoirs of the highest-ranking German resistance survivor, Fabian von Schlabrendorff, back this up. For example, Canaris was sent to Spain to call in Germany’s favor and join the Axis; instead, he warned Franco to stay neutral. Imagine trying to invade North Africa with Gibraltar in Nazi hands.

Admiral Canaris and his organization play a big part in W.E.B. Griffin's Honor Series (7 books so far).

The Gestapo were tipped off that Canaris might be involved in saving Jews. They planted marked bills as part of his budget he would use to facilitate various deeds for the Reich and when those same marked bills turned up in possession of Jews, Canaris was instantly implicated. That's one of the most emphatic bits of evidence for Canaris' consideration as Righteous gentile".

While Colonel Stauffenberg was the major impetus behind the plot, in the aftermath of the failure he was apprehended and shot on sight, his children taken away from his family, while living with their grandparents and separated, given to Polish families. After the war, his children were located and reunited.

Not so fortunate were the those plotters who survived the attempt. They were jailed, put on trial, horribly tortured, executed by having been hanged by piano wire to extend their agony, and filmed in their death throes for Hitler's private screening, gloating. One conspirator had his testicles ripped off. While Canaris was executed by hanging, he was not allowed to die with dignity as he was hanged naked, without any clothes.

My opion on this, "Why then did FDR refuse to help these anti-Nazi Germans end the war as they were reaching out as early as 1943" , has always been that the allies didn't want Hitler dead because he was Germany's own worst enemy . He was to predicable on his military strategy , after all he was as his generals called him "the corporal"

He stated that an armistice with a German provisional government would include the complete withdrawal of Germany from occupied Europe and a holding of a line against Soviet aggression by Germany on the eastern front with the help of the allies.

IOW, the Allies would abandon their announced policy of unconditional surrender, betray their Soviet ally, switch sides and help the Germans retain all their immense gains in Eastern Europe, abandoning the Poles, Balts and others to their fate.

This would be in return for Hitler as an individual and withdrawal from Western Europe, conquest of which was not originally part of the Nazi plan anyway.

Other than under Coolidge and Reagan, the communists had high-placed people in every aspect of government, all the while they were trying to reassure the public that we were fighting a cold war.

I love history, and would love to have access to all these things to read. I read Witness, by Whittaker Chambers and I read The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Schirer. Now that I’m retired, I’d like to start reading more. Any suggestions?

According to his biography on Wikipedia, Canaris was never a member of the Nazi Party. The Abwehr existed before the Nazi takeover. Wouldn’t it be more accurate to call him a German admiral rather than a “Nazi admiral”?
