Some times ago I read a very interesting article about Odin's Role in World War II,and the role of Odin in Hitler's downfall.
The most interesting figure is that of Colones Claus Philipp Maria Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg.Von Stauffenberg was born in Jettingen in 15/11/1907.Stauffenberg was a war hero in World War II,thanks to the loss of his left eye,2 fingers of his left hand and his right hand.
Strange ,but Odin,the Allfather also lacked an eye.And Tyr,the Norse God of War lacked his right hand that was bitten of by Fenrir.
Let us make a simple numerology about Stauffenberg:
-He made his Coup'd Etat in 20/07/1944.
That's 2+0+7=9 also 1+9+4+4=18.
9 is a sacred number for Odin.And 18 is 9x2 or better say,another 9 to the first 9.
-Claus died at the age of 36,in 21/07/1944.
His age was 36,3+6=9.
And the day he died was 21,2+1=3.3 is also a sacred number of Odin. 3x3 or else 3^2 are equal to 9.(9,is,actually,3 times 3).
On my opinion,Stauffenberg had became,without his free will,a messenger of Odin and Tyr sent to Hitler.For some reason,Hitler,that was a fanatic Odinist during WW1(there are some poesies in his ,betrayed Odin in some way and payed for it.But I think it's Odin's style to make him fail in an exemplar way,by destroying every single thing Hitler built(remember Germany right after the end of World War II),and let him survive the 20 July plot,to see this epic defeat.
The 2 possible betrayals are:
-Holocaust(Maybe Odin didn't want the genocide)
-Religion(Maybe Odin wanted Hitler to change Germany's religion to Asatru)
What's your opinion regarding the topic and,what I'm more interested,do you know any other cases of Odin making his appearence through history?
