Yury Selivanov: The Sinister and Non-incidental Coincidences of World War II

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard



The latest anniversary of the attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler on July 20th, 1944, gives a reason to impartially consider the logical interrelation of the main events of World War II…

For a start we will consider the number of strange coincidences in the historical chronology that still don’t have convincing official explanations:

  • Hitler’s deputy Rudolf Hess arrived in Britain on May 11th, 1941. It isn’t known if he agreed on anything there, and if he did, then it isn’t known what it was exactly. But here is what is curious! The first time period of Germany’s attack on the USSR according to the “Barbarossa” plan is May 15th, 1941.
  • It is possible to assume that this coincidence wasn’t incidental, that in reality Hitler knew everything about the mission of the allegedly crazy Hess, and that it was he himself who prepared it. It is precisely for this reason that the first time period of the strike against the USSR was dated for his flight.

  • This can mean that secret negotiations between Berlin and London had been conducted over a long period of time. It is possible that they started immediately after the defeat of France in 1940 and the well-known stop order of Hitler, who spared, as a sign of reconciliation, the British forwarding corps in Dunkirk.

  • Britain at that moment really was on its knees and actually had no army even for self-defense. Negotiations with Hitler were the only chance that it had.

But there is an important question. Why were these negotiations necessary for the Fuhrer if Britain all the same posed no threat to his “European fortress”? And it was possible for Germany to not be afraid of a blow from the West for another 3 years, until the moment the Anglo-Saxons had gathered their forces – which is what actually happened – and to quietly finish off during this time the Soviet Union in order to subsequently not fight on two fronts, which for the Germans was the equivalent of an inevitable defeat.

Everything that happened afterwards also fits into the scheme of there being no official negotiations. Hitler ordered to sink everything that floated in the Northern Atlantic in order to minimise the flow of military freight to Britain and to delay as much as possible the readiness of the Anglo-Saxons for a new jump to Europe. And the latter, in turn, ruthlessly bombed the Reich in revenge for these attempts to paralyse the Atlantic communications.

At the same time, about three years were indeed necessary in order to create a 3-million group of troops with all equipment and infrastructure, should there be a need to transfer it across the ocean.

Although the British tried to probe the Germans even before this time period – with the unsuccessful landings in Dieppe in 1942, which could’ve been real reconnaissance-by-battle, and not an ostentatious simulation of their own powerlessness done especially for Stalin, which the Soviet version of events insists on.

So, it can be said that there weren’t negotiations and a secret plot between the Anglo-Saxons and the Third Reich?

Proceeding from an exclusively military-strategic point of view, this can’t be said. Britain at that time had no physical arguments against Germany. Its military power had a vanishingly small size. Its large fleet had no value in terms of overland war in Europe. In this sense, London had absolutely nothing to sit down with at the table of equal negotiations. And in such a situation in principle there can’t be successful talks and, even more so, favorable agreements.

And even if the Anglo-Saxons formally promised Hitler to not open a second front in Europe for at least 3 years, they actually were selling him hot air, because they couldn’t do it anyway. And the Fuhrer wasn’t a fool at all. And he would never buy hot air, i.e., to reach an agreement on what was already in his hands – a strategic pause in the West for war in the East.

So it turns out that Hess indeed was a turncoat and a loony, and flew to the Brits on his own foolish initiative?

But why then was “Barbarossa” scheduled exactly for the moment of his arrival in Britain? It’s a mere coincidence? Perhaps.

Let’s, however, continue to list similar coincidences.

  • The first time period of Operation “Overlord” (the disembarkation of allies in Normandy — the opening of the second front in Europe) was also scheduled for May 15th, 1944. Exactly three years after Hess’ arrival to England!

  • It is curious that three years is the approximate time period of the collapse of the Russian Empire and the disintegration of the Russian front in World War I, which the Anglo-Saxons were perfectly informed about.

  • The pause taken by Britain and the US before opening the second front in Europe lasted three years too.

  • I.e., this deadline confirmed by history was indeed most likely allocated to the Reich by the Anglo-Saxons for the defeat of the USSR and the maximum bleeding of Germany.

  • By this time period the West was finishing its preparation for active actions in Europe and anyway was switching to a general offensive against Germany, in order to appropriate the fruits of its possible victory in the East, to return control over Europe, and to force to its knees a Germany that had completed its mission of being a blind tool of the Anglo-Saxon’s plans.

It is necessary to pay attention to one more eloquent coincidence that, in my opinion, is significantly underestimated in official history. It is that along with the invasion of the Anglo-Saxons in Western Europe, the highest German generals, in their vast majority, betrayed the Fuhrer and staged a plot against him. In fact, as a result of this betrayal the Western front had initially been disintegrated and France was handed over to the enemy, and there was an attempt to blow up Hitler on July 20th. The Fuhrer was obliged to shoot or jail half of his highest officers and to put actual power over the army into the hands of the SS in order to restore control over the country.

Isn’t this curious – for three years in a row, in the conditions of the most difficult war, the German high command served its Fuhrer truthfully and faithfully and fulfilled any of his orders when it concerned mainly the fight against the USSR. But as soon as the invasion of Anglo-Saxons in Normandy started, there were no traces left of the German military elite’s readiness to fight. What it is – banal psychological shock and fatigue from prolonged war? Or a plot with the enemy strictly coordinated in time, which was the result of the aforementioned West’s activisation of an alternative strategy for Europe and Germany that was predetermined in 1941, and the preparation for the realisation of which, including in the German rear, went at full speed during all these years.

Of course, no formal documents or, even more so, agreements were signed concerning this. It’s not appropriate to put trust in committing such things to paper in principle, especially during wartime. It’s not a coincidence that Hitler, even being in a desperate situation at the end of war, wasn’t able to publish anything on this topic, although the publication of such explosive materials about the secret plot of the Reich with the Anglo-Saxons could influence for certain very seriously world politics of that time and even on the war course. As for Churchill, if such documents had come to the surface, he would’ve finished his final days on the gallows for sure.

And it means that there weren’t and couldn’t be such documents. But, nevertheless, in 1941 there was a moment of objective coincidence of the highest strategic interests and opportunities of the Third Reich, on the one hand, and the Anglo-Saxon coalition, on the other hand. The former sought to use a temporary pause in the West to give themselves a free hand in the East, having finished off the USSR. And London and Washington very much wanted Hitler to leave them alone for the period of time that they needed to properly prepare themselves for arrival at the feast of winners.

Anyway, at least 20 million excess victims from our side became the price of this “objective coincidence of the interests” of two parts of the divided-at-the-time West, which wouldn’t have happened if the Anglo-Saxons had met the wishes of the Soviet Union, which already in the 1930’s suggested to create a system of collective security in Europe and to nip in the bud any attempts by Hitler’s Germany to dictate its will to the entire continent.

But London and Washington didn’t opt for this. Back then they were much more concerned about the search for a rather effective tool to finish off the alternative-to-capitalism social order of the Soviet Union, which they fairly considered to pose the main and lethal threat to them. And they insistently pushed Germany towards making the corresponding steps, having thus made the situation irreversible and having actually put Hitler in front of the inevitability of invading the USSR.

In fact, the Anglo-Saxon West acts against Russia in accordance with precisely this referential historical model today too, trying to steer the potential of today’s Western Europe towards a confrontation with the Russian Federation, which, although it stopped being the communistic Soviet Union, continues all the same to be what instills superstitious fear in the West due to its incorrigible otherness. This fear is mixed with the immemorial aspiration of a swindler businessman to solve their problems at the expense of others. We should remember these lessons of history so that the “objective coincidence” of western interests – lethal for us – doesn’t become an accomplished fact again.
