in 1941 the United States joined World War two and war was declared between America and Germany but why did the Nazi army never invade the States hello and welcome back to you life's biggest questions where today we are continuing our world war series I'm Rebecca fell gage and today we're imagining what if Germany had invaded America during World War two Germany was pretty busy in 1941 by this point it was already fighting a war on two fronts the Red Army to the east and the French and British armies
00:30
to the west fighting on a Third Front at that time would have been practically impossible it is clear that the Germans considered America to be an eventual target with Hitler often hoping to team up with the British to eventually attack the States as a team however hopes of this quickly died when the UK declared war in 1941 Germany did still hope for military success they chose their moment to declare war on America just days after the fellow power axis ally Japan hit the United States soil in the Pearl Harbor attack if anything they were
01:02
hoping that Japan could focus on the American threats however there were some vague plans to attack the United States lands when the army wasn't so occupied they would have entered through Canada via planned capture of Greenland then eventually down the fifth column they also saw Pearl Harbor as key and have they destabilized the Red Army they would have sent troops over the Russian land to Alaska and down into the rest of the States but of course this was all just a pipe dream had Germany decided to invade America by land it would have divided up their already dwindling
01:32
troops along with water both the east and west in Russian France Germany had troops in Denmark Norway the Netherlands and Belgium even if Germany could muster up the manpower if they tried to invade by the Atlantic the Kriegsmarine would have been squashed by the much more powerful British Royal Navy but let's pretend that they were able to get past the British Navy there is no way that the reasonably limited German fleet could tackle the 1941 US navy by this point to the American army was growing by 1943 they
02:05
had almost 7 million men which is over 6 million more people than ever saw battle these soldiers would have been ready to defend the state along its vast yet very defendable coastline in short if Germany had tried to attack by sea and/or land they would have been vastly outnumbered and their men obliterated this would have weakened them significantly when they were still under a two-pronged attack in Europe had this happened perhaps the defeat of the Nazi army would have been quicker for the Allies well not exactly invading Germany could
02:37
have launched an aerial attack on the states in fact the Luftwaffe were considering a strategic transatlantic bombing and started to develop the America bomber project to create planes capable of going the distance and striking these plans were abandoned in 1942 again because of the mounting tensions from the two-pronged war in Europe however had they struck and succeeded I can only imagine Germany could have met with the same fate that Japan did in the horrendous bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima it took the Japanese a very long time to recover
03:08
from those attacks but it would have totally devastated Germany whether or not the states chose to hit back with a nuke or not they would have come back somehow which again would have been another premature of game ender for Germany on a much smaller scale Germany did try and invade with spies during Operation Pastorius in 1942 here saboteurs were supposed to plant explosives at key targets including hydroelectric plants at Niagara Falls however this too was unsuccessful and had any actual damage being done once
03:39
again American retaliation would have been too crippling for the Third Reich to handle the only successful invasion Germany could have hoped for was an ideological invasion which they were kind of working on in 1939 there was a pro-nazi rally by the German American Bund in New York City this had over 20,000 a10 these however the buns never really grew to threat level I guess America was founded on wildly different ideologies than that of Nazi Germany that it would never be impossible to invade the American mind
04:10
and much less possible to invade their land ultimately if Germany had attempted to invade America during World War two they would have suffered heavy heavy losses which is probably why an already stretched German army never seriously considered it there would have been vicious retribution - which would have crippled an already struggling regime thank you so much for tuning in to this episode of life's biggest questions what do you think would have happened if Germany had in tempted to invade the United States do you think the states could ever be invaded by a different country in the future let me know in the
