First part of article is of a usual taste. We today (and for, like, 40 years before, after much of WWII-vets already passed out) just can`t take into mind, what situations was that times, how 'normal' people actually acts then and the true scope of leaders moving figures over world checkerboard there. All of it is not fit to our generally peaceful and prosperous lives, so we cant`t understand many things, like how poor austrian painter, wheelchaired person, lieutenant of British army and not finished his education priest came to power and take their warthrones in 1941, command a million nations to fight which humanity never saw before, and, i'm still try to wish, will never seen once again. So we tend to search for simplifications and contractions, which in simple words will solve the complex puzzles of history. Narcotics and alcohol are common traces of attempts of simplifications - 'they just was constantly high, by all the nations'. Well, don`t be surprised when our current history soon will be described with same simplifications, like 'Trump win because of marihuana legalize' or 'Putin`s political longevity was possible because of cheap vodka in Russia'.
