Told through the lens of the bumbling generals and paranoid Fuhrer who had hit the big time by tragic accident.
Hitler’s war machine was feared and ruthless - at least for a time. It cut a swathe through Europe and North Africa and threatened to overrun Russia. From 1939 into the early 1940s Hitler’s dream of a Third Reich and dominance over all of Europe was a distinct possibility. But then cracks appeared. The war machine became vulnerable.
The history of WWII is usually told through the eyes of the victors - but How the Nazis Lost the War is told through the lens of the bumbling generals and paranoid Fuhrer who had hit the big time by tragic accident.
For the first time, How the Nazis Lost the War tells the decline of Hitler’s empire from the inside out - showing how a dysfunctional, bloated, poorly led gang of thugs managed to fool Germany, then take Europe by surprise.
The Nazis were murderous victors by mistake - and when faced with a mobilisedopposition their homicidal ineptitude was writ large. These stories are told through expert interviews with historians, sociologists and military strategists.
