Adolf Hitler’s military experiences from the First World War in no way qualified him for supreme command. Yet by July 1940, he had conquered Europe. The Fuhrer of Germany had personally ordered his army, air force and navy to attack and quickly overpower Poland, Czechoslovakia, Holland, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and France. Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania had quickly become allies along with the acquiescent military powers of Benito Mussolini’s Fascist Italy and General Franco’s Spain.

These achievements prompted the Wehrmacht Chief of Staff, Field Marshal Willem Keitel to pronounce the Fuhrer of the new Third Reich, to be ‘the Greatest Commander of all time’

Hitler’s blind ideology, racist hatred and single-mindedness had, by an astonishing run of good luck, given him his early string of political and military successes, as well as his many escapes from sex scandals and assassination attempts on his life.

But, the author concludes in this meticulously researched and highly readable book, from 1941 onwards, Hitler’s downfall was entirely attributable to the big military mistakes that he alone made.
