I was distinguished graduate for my Corporal's Course class. I'm now done, and I can claim the title Corporal of Marines. Time to get back to my life and reorganize it, or at least pick up some of the good bits I left off when I went away.
I came across this and I thought it was cute both accurate and pretty entertaining.
Guderian: "Hey, we need a lot more tanks if we're ever going to go on an offensive in Russia"
Hitler: "Well, let's just split up the tank divisions, this way we'll have TWICE the number of tank divisions, with the stroke of a pen"
Guderian: "But then we'll have half the number of tanks per division, and double the need for supply lines and logistics"
Hitler: "Who's der Führer?"
Guderian: "you are..."
Von Rundstedt: "Hey, we can totally capture the entire british expeditionary force, and a large portion of the french army about to evacuate to Britain"
Hitler: "that's fine and dandy, but I promised my mate Göring some share of the glory, he will totally destroy them with a couple of dive bombers, trust me, he told me so in a drug fuelled stupor"
Albert Speer: "Hey, i've got this idea how to increase arms production tenfold"
Hitler: "Why don't you make some pretty propaganda lights instead? You're an architect after all, while I was a corporal in WW1, which makes me an expert on absolutely everything related to armed forces"

Rommel: "Hey, we've got to beat the brits in Africa if we're ever going to win this. We need those oil fields, and we have them on the run."
Hitler: "No, i'm going to attack Russia soon, but take these fifty tanks, and hold Sirte"
Rommel: "I used those fifty tanks and took half of North Africa, but it's not enough, if we don't push the brits out, they'll regroup and throw us off the continent."
Hitler: "You disobey orders?"
Dönitz: "Hey, if we wait to wage war on Britain until we've got a sufficient submarine fleet, we can totally starve them out"
Hitler: "No, use these thirty subs, so the Brits will have time to learn our weaknesses, and so that we'll never inflict any real damage on their shipping."
Hitler: "And I'm going to make Raeder your superior, even though he's a surface fleet commander, and the Kriegsmarine has almost no surface fleet compared to submarine fleet"
Some Ukrainian civillian: "Hey, thanks for liberating us from the Sovjet union, we'll totally follow Romania and Hungary's example and join the axis. You need all the manpower you can get.
Hitler: "only good slav, is a dead slav"
Paulus: "Hey, this Stalingrad thing is not looking too good, they're about to encircle us, but if we pull back, we'll save our entire army."
