I'm not challenging you, just want to know more haha I don't post anything unless I try debunking it myself first.
I appreciate it when someone makes a humble and thoughtful request. Bravo!
The source of much of my information came from many years of schooling, and learning history in the classroom and with homework. Back in the 1960s and '70s, World War II and related history was a big deal. Perhaps this was because many of my classmates' parents or grandparents escaped the Nazis...or didn't.
A lot of my own personal knowledge about the Versailles Treaty
and its consequences came out of my own curiosity about Vietnam. (Ho Chi Minh
actually went to Versailles, hoping to gain US support for Vietnamese independence.) The treaty that was highly punitive to Germany is something that must be first understood in order to understand how a former German army corporal could end up starting World War II.
I use Wikipedia a lot for double-checking my memory. It's important to understand that I rarely use it as a primary source of information; it's not a truly authoritative source. But it's good for other things, as long as its limitations are understood. There's no substitute for a good education, learned texts, and other documentary sources.
