Hitler secretly planned to invade Ireland

A dossier containing secret Nazi plans for an invasion of Ireland is to go under the hammer today.

Even though Ireland took a neutral position during World War II and allowed German U-boats in its waters it appeared that Hitler still considered the country a potential invasion target. The dossier contains photographs, maps and notes detailing strategic cities and locations in Ireland that would have made good targets for capture. The plans were ultimately abandoned however once it became clear that the German Luftwaffe had failed to defeat the British RAF.

Entitled 'Militargeographische Angaben uber Irland' the dossier is expected to fetch over $1000 at the auction to be held at Ludlow Race Course in Shropshire.

"While Ireland remained neutral during the war, it was seen as a potentially important strategic location for the German military whose U boats were allowed into Irish waters."

Makes sense to me that he would consider it a target for invasion. Its close proximity to England, Scotland and Wales would've made it ideal. A back door into one of the Allies countries. I think he had a plan to take over everyone lol.

No way he would have taken Ireland the fool. They would have came ashore to be beaten to death by Irish women like Beckys Mom.

I think he had a plan to take over everyone lol. Actually, not. He wanted the Ukraine for food production and the Caucasus for oil and some overseas colonies for raw materials, but his ambitions were - somewhat - limited. That might not have lasted, of course.
