Well, you got to remember that we werent in war with anyone at that time
(before 1941 that is). We even embraced Nazism in some aspect just like the
british royals did before the war (remember that they ARE germans even if
they changed their name to Windsor...) We ranked up in sales in Germany,
UK, Japan, etc. So no surprise there....
