If they hadn't of been delayed by moving into the Balkans then they would have conqured Russia without a doubt. As Waddel mentions, their treatment of the people was another factor as to why they lost. Many people actually fail to realise just how close they were to victory. One night Moscow was deserted and had they made on last thrust it would have been all over.
Maybe, but the reason he attacked the SU was to make Britain sue for peace. That is one explanation as to why he left the invasion anyway.
Interesting. Just an alternative viewpoint I chanced across.
Hardly: the attitude in Britain up to 1939 was to let Hitler and Stalin fight it out, but it had changed by 1941.
I'd just like to agree with the above point, his views were indeed disgusting, but I'm not sure I can agree with the endorsement of Hitler being the one to come and magically save the country from the Weimar dragon, as it were. The allied reaction to WW1 at Versailles was just as important as the weaknesses of the Weimar system; the Weimar republic did not create all, or even most of the "damage" you talk about, it was the result of the first world war and its aftermath. And saying that he did a lot for the lower socioeconomic classes? I can only imagine you mean repairing the economy after the depression (as opposed to, say, the terror of the gestapo, or indoctrination of their children), and since this was due to rearming the country to plunge it into an even more ruinous war than the last one, sending off many of the lower socioeconomic classes to die, I can't really see how that did much for them.
Hitler was a sociopathic genius, like many geniuses.
yes, i suppose his views were more than a tad off.. but atleast he didn't like communism!
