This is the first study to examine Nazi German foreign policy towards the Union of South Africa from 1933-1939. This work purports to be neither a popular book for the masses nor a synthetic look at Nazi foreign policy in toto. It deals with a fairly circumscribed period, 1933-1939, and a narrow topic: German foreign policy toward the Union of South Africa.

From Nazi Germany to South Africa. The article focuses on the political activities of a Khoekhoe prophet in the early 1900s.

Nazi Germany did a fair amount of damage to its own cause by delaying the invasion of the Soviet Union leading to death and cold in the Soviet winter. 11-09-2008, 10:50 AM. ArizonaBear. But I think we can be thankful that Germany was just too small and the world was too big. 11-11-2008, 01:05 AM. Bjorn Ironside32. The 3 powers each made some unique contribution the other two simply could not match. US contributed primarily as the arms shop of the alliance, British navy enforced the blockade against Germany and Britain itself provided a probably irreplaceable staging ground for late D-Day invasion. Russia, I guess, we all know what Russia's contribution was.

This is a list of the major periods in world history. Bronze Age (3000–1300 BCE) The Bronze age refers to the broad period of history when cultures in Europe, Asia and other parts of the world made the first uses of bronze, from mining copper and tin. Bronze enabled more powerful tools and weapons. It was an age where the first writing systems became devised and used.

This is the first study to examine Nazi German foreign policy towards the Union of South Africa from 1933-1939. Making extensive use of unpublished primary source German documents, Robert Citino focuses on the activities of the German embassy and consulates within South Africa in order to answer four basic questions: What role did race and racial theory play in German foreign policy towards South Africa? Did Germany attempt to exploit South African yearnings for international respect, and, if so, how? Did the Germans seek to take advantage of deep divisions within South African society between British and Afrikaners? Finally, to what extent was the German Foreign Office Nazified in the 1930s? By concentrating on the policies and views of German diplomatic personnel within a single country--rather than on Hitler's grandiose proclamations and speeches on world affairs--Citino offers a closer look at Nazi German foreign policy operations than is usually available.

The study is organized chronologically and begins with an overview of German-South African relations before 1933. Subsequent chapters address early tensions and South African domestic developments in the years leading up to the outbreak of war. Specific topics covered include the role played by the former German colony of Southwest Africa in relations between the two states, the hostile attitude of much of the South African press towards Nazi Germany, the boycott of German firms by the South African Jewish community, the Smuts-Hertzog fusion, the rise of Malan and his Purified nationalist party, the growth of anti-Semitism in South Africa and the concurrent growth in Afrikaner national consciousness, and South African attitudes towards the major European crises of the 1930s. Citino concludes by analyzing Germany's inability to keep South Africa neutral in 1939 and the entry of the Union into the war at England's side. Students of modern German, South African, and twentieth century diplomatic history will find Citino's work an enlightening contribution to the literature of Nazi Germany's foreign relations.
