Lesser of Two Evils:
Germany in a Draka World
The following is an excerpt from Globe in Chaos: The Interbellum Years:"They say that we are doomed to be nothing. They say that we are only a second rate power, doomed to fight for a distant third behind the continent-states. People of Germany, will you let them say these things to you? Will you let them spread these lies about the Fatherland? No! We will show them. In the end, it is our nation that shall rise above! It is Germany that shall span not one, but all of the continents!"
--Adolf Hitler, 1932
. . . rise to power, Hitler began rearming Germany. He meant what he had said while a minority party, and while he was in power, he would not allow Germany to be simply a second-rate power. Interestingly, as he rose to power Germany was only a second-rate power, at best: along with Japan, France, and increasingly Britain, Germany was second rate to the so-called "continent-states" of the United States of America (North America) and the Domination of the Draka (Africa, some of Asia) (see Fig. 1). In terms of total land area, these two nations did indeed dominate the globe. . .
