War Crimes: USA Part 2
by Lt. Col. Gordon "Jack" Mohr, AUS Ret.
In spite of everything which has been written about Eisenhower which
makes him out to be a hero, there seems little question that Dwight
Eisenhower meets all the qualifications of a certified war criminal,
even if Bacque's figures are off a bit. (If Germany had been the
winner, there is little doubt he would have been tried and found guilty
of the most heinous crimes against mankind.)
Many veterans will get upset with this appraisal of a man they looked
on as a "bona fide" American hero. But the proof for these accusations
can be found in what happened to those Germans who were fortunate
enough to surrender to the British and the Canadians some two million
of them. The evidence shows that "almost all continued in fair health
and many were quickly released and sent home or transferred to the
French, to help in the post-war work of reconstruction.
Bacque specifically commends General Patton for behavior towards his
POWs it a civilized manner. His Third Army freed vast numbers of German
captives during May 1945, to the dismay, no doubt, of the Zionists who
Both General Omar Bradley and J. C. H. Lee, Communications Zone
(ComZ) Europe, ordered the release of prisoners within a week of the
war's end. This SHAEF order was countermanded by Eisenhower on May IS,
While German soldiers from the British and Canadian zones were quickly
regaining strength and were helping rebuild Europe, Germans taken by
the Americans were dying by the hundreds of thousands - emaciated
figures in diarrhea smeared clothing, huddling pitifully in watery
holes with perhaps a scrap of cardboard over their heads and a rotten
potato for supper. At times many of them were reduced to drinking urine
and eating grass.
Did all this happen because of one supremely unprincipled and
influential man named Eisenhower? Or was Ike in turn influenced by a
small circle around him or by his superiors in Washington? Historians
will be probing this question for decades to come.
Here are the principle dates by which this infamy will live:
1944: Eisenhower told the British ambassador to Washington that the
3,500 officers of the German General staff should be ''exterminated.''
He also favored the liquidation of perhaps 100,000 prominent Germans.
Soon after, he wrote to his wife, Mamie: "God, I hate Germans! Why?
Because the German is a beast!" Eisenhower said he was ashamed to bear
a German name.
August 1944: The North American wheat surplus was greater than at any
time in history, nearly one billion bushels. The U.S. corn surplus and
potato crop also reached a new high.
March 10, 1944: A message sent from Eisenhower to the Combined Chiefs
of Staff (CCS) of Britain and the U.S. recommended the creation of an
entirely new class of prisoners, Disarmed Enemy Forces or DEFs. At a
press conference in Paris, this same day, Ike said: "If the Germans
were reasoning like normal beings, they would realize the whole history
of the United States and Great Britain is to be generous towards a
defeated enemy. We observe all the laws of the Geneva Convention.''
March 19, 1945: Eisenhower's special assistant, General Everett Hughes,
visited the American supply depots at Naples and Marseille. In both
places, he writes, there are ''more stocks than we can ever use. (They)
stretch as far as eye can see.''
Spring 1945: The International Red Cross had over 100,000 tons of food
stockpiled in Switzerland. At one point, it sent two trainloads into
the American Zone of Germany, but the food was sent back. The
Morgenthau Plan for a ''Carthaginian Peace'' in Germany, to use the
words of Military Governor Lucius Clay, is implemented through the
directive JCS (Joint Chiefs of Staff) 1067, which specifies to
Eisenhower the policy he must adopt towards every institution in
Germany. The directive is largely the work of three of Henry
Morgenthau's underlings in the Treasury Department Harry Dexter White,
Frank Coe, and Harry Glasser. White and Glasser were both Jews and all
three were Communist ''fellow travelers.''
April 11, 1945: On the eve of his death, FDR told Morgenthau in Warm
Springs, GA: "Henry, I am with you l00%" When Truman took over, he
continued Morgenthau's "Carthaginian Policy" towards conquered Germany.
April 17, 1945: The Americans opened their enormous Rheinberg Camp, six
miles in circumference, with no food or shelter whatsoever. As in the
other big "Rhine meadow" camps, opened in mid-April, there was
initially no latrines and no water. In some camps, the men were so
crowded they could not lie down. Meanwhile, at Camp Kripp, near
Remagen, the half-American Charles von Luttichau determines that his
German comrades are receiving about 5% as much food as their captors."
Complaining to the camp commander, HE SAID: ''Forget the Geneva
Convention. You don't have any rights."
Late April 1945: Heinz Janssen, a survivor of the Rheinberg camp,
described conditions as they were at the time. "Amputees slithered like
amphibians through the mud , soaking and freezing. Naked to the skies
day after day and night after flight, they lay desperate in the sand of
Rheinberg or sleep exhaustedly into eternity ill their collapsing
April 26, 1945: The Combined Chiefs of Staff sent a message to
Eisenhower, urging him not to take any more German prisoners after VE
Day. He ignored it. The CCS approved of Ike's proposed DEF status, but
only for certain types of German prisoners. The British refused to go
against the Geneva Convention. The CCS orders the illegal DEF status to
be kept strictly secret. By this date, Eisenhower's Quartermaster
General of ASHAEF, Gen. Robert Littlejohn, has already twice reduced
the rations to German prisoners. A message to Gen. George C. Marshall,
signed by Ike, mandated: ''No shelter'' for German prisoners, despite
an unusually cold and wet March and April.
May 4, 1945: The first German POWs were transfer-red to DEF status.
Mail to and from all German prisoners was banned for more than a year.
May 8, 1945: Germany surrendered unconditionally. The U.S. State
Department wasted no time dismissing Switzerland as the official
Protecting Power for German prisoners, contravening the Geneva
Convention. State also informed the International Red Cross that, with
no Protecting Power to report to, there is no point in sending
delegates to the camps. From this day forward, prisoners held by the
U.S. Army had no access to any impartial observer. The British and
Canadians also removed the Swiss protectors, but continued treating
their POWs decently.
May, 1945: The American Red Cross reported that more than 98% of
Americans captured by the Germans will be coming home safely, thanks in
part to the food parcels sent to them during the war, which were
promptly delivered by the Germans.
May 15, 1945: Eisenhower and Churchill talked about further reducing
the rations for the German POWs. Churchill was informed that the POWs
have been getting 2,000 calories per day (compared to 4,000 for
American troops) and that 2,150 was regarded as an absolute minimum
required for sedentary adults living under shelter. Eisenhower failed
to tell Churchill that the U.S. Army was not even feeding many DEFs,
and that they were feeding others, much less than 2,000 calories per
Mid-May 1945: The Bingen camp, near Bad Kreuznach in the Rhineland, was
now holding between 200,000 and 400,000 German POWs, with no shelter,
food, water, or medicine. The death rate for prisoners in these U.S.
camps were now about 30% per year, according to a U.S. medical survey.
June 2, 1945: The European Theater Provost Marshal issued two reports.
One, the last in a series of daily reports, logged 2,870,400 POWs on
hand. The other, the first report in a weekly series, dated the same
day, logged only 1,836,000. At one point in mid-June, the prisoner
strength on the ration list is given as 1,421,559, despite the evidence
of Gen. J.C.H. Lee and others that there were about 4 million. This
bizarre bookkeeping persisted throughout 1945 in all branches of the
occupying army. The apparent purpose was to obscure the death toll by
means of an indecipherable mass of conflicting Statistics. (One of
Bacque's greatest coups has been to decipher them.)
Mid - June, 1945: British "Tommies" took over the huge Rheinberg camp
from the Americans, saving many thousands of German lives. The final
act of the ''Yanks" before the British took charge, was to bulldoze one
section flat while the men were still living in their holes in the
ground. Meanwhile, a team of doctors from the U.S. Army Medical Corps
completed a survey of some of the smaller Rhineland camps, holding some
80,000 POWs (not DEFs). They found a death rate 80 times higher than
anything they have known in their professional career.
July, 1945: Eisenhower becomes military governor of the U.S. Zone in
Germany. He continued to turn back all relief teams from Switzerland,
the U.S. and elsewhere.
July 10, 1945: A French Army unit under Gen. Rousseau, took over the
Dietersheim camp (near Mainz) from the Americans. He found 32,000 men
and women of all ages in a moribund (dying) State. Another French
officer Capt .Julien, was taking command 17 days later and found a vast
mire ''peopled with living skeletons, male and female, huddling under
scraps of wet card board ." Horrified, Julien wrote: 'This is just like
the photographs of Buchenwald and Dachau.
July 20, 1945: Gen. Littlejohn received a memo stating, "These men,
German POWs are authorized a maximum of 1,150 calories for the
non-workers and 1,850 for workers.'' (Remember, it takes 2,000 calories
of keep a sedentary adult alive.
July 26, 1945: The International Red Cross proposed restoring mail
service to German POWs. Fearing that the reality of the death camps
might come to light, the U. S. War Department rejected the idea.
August 4, 1945: Eisenhower ordered that all remaining German POWs be
stripper of their rights, thus reducing them to DEF status.
August 27, 1945: In a long memorandum, Gen. Littlejohn informed
Eisenhower that 1,550,000 Germans who supposedly were getting U.S. ARMY
RATIONS, WERE RECEIVING NOTHING. Ike turned a deaf ear to his report
and the death rate continued to climb.
August 30, 1945: Max Huber, head of the International Red Cross, wrote
a stinging letter to the U.S. State Department about American
interference in efforts to save starving Germans. Some months later, an
evasive response, signed ''Eisenhower,'' arrived in Washington, falsely
claiming that giving Red Cross food to enemy personnel was forbidden.
Thousands of train cars loaded with decaying food were sent back to
Geneva arid to sources in Paris and Brussels. Huber apologized for
tying up the French rail system because of the food which was being
returned by the Americans.
By this time, more than 2-million German men had been discharged into
American custody, including thousands of priests, ministers, doctors,
and professors. Not one single camp commander or guard was questioned
by the Allied press corps and the controlled media of the U.S.
concerning conditions in these hell holes.
It might be well, to stop right here and ask this question: ''Is anyone
who reads this horrifying account, so naive as to believe that the
American people would have put up with these barbaric actions by its
chief military men if they had known about it? Do you think that the
politicians who were in the forefront of those who kept these facts
from Americans would have lasted very long in office, if the truth had
been known? Do you think that millions of Americans would show such
concern for the Holocaust of the Jews, if they knew that it was Jewish
hatred for their fellow kinsmen, that were killing over a million
Germans? I sincerely doubt it! That's why these facts have been kept
from the American people for almost fifty years.
Late Summer, 1945: Jean-Pierre Pradervand, head of the International
Red Cross delegations in France, told Henry W. Dunning, an American Red
Cross official, that conditions in the French camps are worse, in many
instances, than anything seen in the former Nazi camps. Pradervand
showed Dunning pictures of the living skeletons. Dunning explained all
this to the American Red Cross in Washington, which informed key
government officials. Nevertheless, the cover-up continued. Pradervand
also informed Charles De Gaulle that one-third of the prisoners handed
over to France by the Americans will die soon without a radical change
in treatment. De Gaulle showed no interest and the prisoners continued
September 27, 1945: Pradervand's pictures of German living skeletons were shown to Eisenhower in his office.
September 30, 1945 - October 1: The French newspaper, Le Monde, ran a
story which began: "As one speaks today of Dachau, in ten years people
throughout the world will speak about camps such as Saint Paul
October 11,13, 14, 15, 20: The New York Times ran a cover-up report of
the death camps by star newsman Drew Middleton. Interviewed by Bacque
in 1988, Middleton admitted that he never actually visited any of the
50 U.S. camps located within 40 miles of his Frankfurt desk, but was
only 'driven by,' as he was being debriefed by the military."
December 1945: Eisenhower returned to the States and the U.S. Army
allowed the first relief shipment to enter the American sector.
1947 - 1950's: Nearly all the surviving records of the Rhineland death
camps were destroyed. The West German government concluded that
1.7-million German soldiers were alive at the wars' end, and who were
known to have been in fair health, and disappeared. The Western Allies
pinned virtually all the blame on the Soviets.
1950: The first German edition of ALLHERERTE KRIEGSVERBRECHEN is
published. Never translated into English, the book gives eye-witness
descriptions of the conditions which prevailed in the American camps.
1960s - 1972: The West German Foreign Office, under Willy Brandt
subsidized books denying the atrocities in American POW camps and the
high death rate.
1980: The International Committee of the Red Cross refuses to open its
archives to James Bacque and other investigators into Allied
atrocities. To this day, the ICRC has remained silent on the subject,
despite the visits of Pradervand and other Red Cross delegates to many
September 1989: James Bacque's book on the American death camps, "Other
Losses," published by Stoddard, a Canadian Publishing House, was
released, after being refused by more than 30 American publishers.
Saturday night, one of Canada's most respected magazines,
simultaneously published a summary of this book as its lead story and
within days Canada was buzzing about Gen. Eisenhower's war crimes. Why
is it that we have heard little or nothing of this in the United
As American citizens, many of us who served in the American Armed
Forces during World War II, and a great many of us who are of German
heritage, should demand of our leaders in Washington, D.C. that the
truth about this War be made known.
With accurate information of what really happened, instead of Zionist
propaganda, just possibly we might be able to avert World War III,
which is now being planned by these same One Worlders.
It is interesting to note, that it has been proven in recent years,
that many of the pictures taken in Germany during WW II, purporting to
be Jewish victims of ''racial extermination,'' were actually pictures
of German civilians who had died under American war criminals.
