Armageddon it (WW2 remix)

I came across an interesting quote this weekend:

At present, the prophecies of Nostradamus, a sixteenth century physician who uncannily saw through time, are of growing interest. The predictions of this man have amazed millions because of their accuracy in foretelling, among other things, the present war and its outcome.
--from a book review in the January 1942 issue of Military Review

Fascinating. Other books reviewed in the magazine featured titles like Hitler Cannot Conquer Russia and My New Order (the latter a collection of Hitler speeches). I love history.
