In this article, the writer notes that as a wartime leader Hitler did things right at the beginning, but made major mistakes later on that led to the destruction of his nation. The writer then looks at some of Hitler's military considerations and calculations. The writer looks at Hitler's greatest errors and miscalculations, making use of different relevant works of literature. The writer maintains that Hitler's greatest error, besides underestimating the ability of the Allies to beat him back, was probably the invasion of Russia.
From the Paper:"During the years between 1933 and 1938, Hitler just wanted to build up his arms while he was cutting deals to revise the Versailles agreement and keeping the Allies from pinning him down. His diplomatic strategy at that time was that he didn't want to rattle too many cages or cause too much concern among the New Conservatives in Germany, at first, so he kept to the anti-Bolshevism theme which old-time leaders in Germany agreed with; that is, Germany will take over the Soviet Union one day. Also, France was an enemy of Germany, and the old-liners agreed with Hitler that "reconciliation" with France would never be possible."
"The Germans had tried since 1918 to maintain good relationships with England, but Hitler "despised British democracy"; the United States didn't enter into Germany's immediate plans, but Hitler thought the U.S. was being dominated by "Jews and blacks." Hitler believed Italy was a natural ally, and he was right, Orlow wrote."
