It sounds more like the Royal Navy's style: "...kill an admiral from time to time to encourage the others."

That is a misquote from a Frenchman of all people...

Hitler didn't execute a lot of the people he personally removed (Generals etc.), he just sacked them which meant they lost their living and status of course.

A lot of lower ranks were executed, sometimes for the most bizzare reasons, during the early part of the war. The account by Rudolf Hoess (the commandant of Auschwitz) details the first execution in his book.

I recommend Hoess' book only because the world needs to know what he did and thought, and so similar thoughts can be identified and opposed. Proceeds of sales go to charities too.

Why can't they just sell rolling shells! Why!

Vaporware. So many things point to malarki. I think positively of this, but I accept [my] reality that this will never be. I won't let them disappoint me.
