Removed the following from the Conspiracy example:

  • While the Nazis were the main characters in this film, they were portrayed as bad guys. So whether or not this film qualifies as an example depends on whether a protagonist is considered to be the main character or a good guy.

Protagonist are generally considered to be the person the story is about, not if they are the hero or the villain.

Is Erwin Rommel a Nazi Protagonist? I can't remember if he had membership.

Wehrmacht personnel were forbidden to join political parties during their service, despite the Non-Indicative Name given to them on this wiki, though of course many had previously belonged to the Nazi Party. Rommel however never joined the party, so that example should be removed.

Generally, a clean-up of this page is in order. There are a number of other examples (e.g. Stalingrad) whose protagonists are merely Wehrmacht conscripts, and it's never made clear whether they have ever actually been Nazis. Putting those examples down veers into All Germans Are Nazis territory, which the page expressly warns against.
