Hitler Stopped by Franco


Documented historical fiction. Yes, fiction. But only because it reads like a short novel, with suspense, intrigue, political twists... all the ingredients that make an absorbing and fast read.

Documented for sure, just check it out and see all the extra documents in the last pages, the recorded audio-conversations, etc that were used to compile the information here. Authentical 100%.

Historically relevant, very important stuff. Literally Franco saved more than 60,000 Jews during WWII from going to the extermination camps. This needs to be told. We can't say the same about many people during those days: the Jews were prevented from returning to their ancient land in Palestine by the British, and were thus retained for the gas chambers.

The book makes for a good picture of the whole European situation in those turbulent times. No need to be an expert on historical issues. Just plain facts tell it all, and here they are. Judge for yourself.

"Little" Franco was the cleverest political mind of his time. Amazing how he played the Allies against the Axis, just to keep his beloved country out of another war. He made us avoid the Communist Iron Curtain for 75 years. We didn't share a dollar of the Marshall Plan, we lived poor -blessed be the poor- but at least in peace, and the Soviets didn't invade us like East Europe. He saved lives. If that is a bad thing, then he is guilty of it. Although a dictator who didn't belive in democracy, he was was not a mad person the likes of Stalin, Hitler or the many East European communist leaders behind the Red Curtain.

"Es cierto que el Romano es libre de hacer todo lo que quiera. Pero también lo es que tiene que soportar las consecuencias de sus actos. No importa que se haya equivocado, que le hayan engañado o incluso forzado: un hombre no se deja forzar: etiamsi coactus, attamen voluit. Es libre; pero si distraído, imprudente o atontado, prometió pagar una determinada cantidad y no puede pagarla, se convierte en esclavo de su acreedor."

Rudolph von Ihering

“Slavery, protection, and monopoly find defenders, not only in those who profit by them, but in those who suffer by them.”

Frédéric Bastiat

On the true nature of the Castro Revolution in Cuba: "The revolution was a cover for committing atrocities without the slightest vestige of guilt ... we were young and irresponsible. We were pirates. We formed our own caste ... we belonged to and believed in nothing -no religion, no flag, no morality or principle. It's fortunate we didn't win, because if we had, we would have drowned the continent in barbarism."

Jorge Masetti -In the Pirate's Den

La anarquía, es decir, la ausencia de fuerza estatal, no es una forma de Estado, y cualquiera que acabe con ella por el medio que sea, el usurpador nacional o el conquistador extranjero, rinde un servicio a la sociedad. Es un salvador, un bienhechor, porque la forma más insoportable de Estado es la ausencia de Estado.

Rudolph von Ihering
