Germany Naval power was never going to catch up because of WW1 and fact the bulk of Germanys Navy and Navel power got scrapped after WW1.

Remember a huge bulk of the ships in the Navy of the UK, France, USA anf
And japan where built just before or during WW1. Something like 50% could be older ships. This was especially true due to the Washington Naval treaty that futher put restrictions on naval fleets.



They were sinking British supplies by the the hundreds. So no, they had the U-boat advantage which gave them the Naval advantage. U-boats were the most deadliest ships in that era because no much ships can really match them(killed them, not even battleships).

Plus Germans were getting infiltrated by night and day. Their docks were being destroyed. Germany had no proper troops vessels.

The "over the air" thing at Bletchley park with the touring "bombe" probably didn't help much either.
Was Rommels book written by Nietchze?
Some tank thing that will never be explained because Rommel took the secret to the grave.

Good points about how close we were run by Germany at sea & land during that 6 years of WW2, i had a grandfather who served in the Navy during that time frame and explained the hell those people went through on Arctic convoys and the Malta runs where he was on 1 of only 3 ships to get there .

If Germany had built all those submarine pens and hollowed out mountain factories , Rather than try it while being bombed stupid and having a idiot high command who opened up 3 fronts at once south.greyfalcon.us...

They didn't really lose the Air superiority thing until they started invading Soviet Union, German had enough aircrafts to deal with Brits alone. But, when they start fighting Soviet they had to move all their aircraft away. Germans were too distracted in multiple fronts.

Your source is irrelevant as it is merely a catalog of equipment lost by each warring party. Try supply some real sources to back up your completely inaccurate statement.


The Battle of Britain marked the first major defeat of Hitler's military forces, with air superiority seen as the key to victory. - Alan Putland Battle of Britain 1940: Britain Prepares for War.



Irrespective of whether Hitler was really set on this course, he simply lacked the resources to establish the air superiority that was the sine qua non-of a successful crossing of the English Channel. A third of the initial strength of the German air force, the Luftwaffe, had been lost in the western campaign in the spring. The Germans lacked the trained pilots, the effective fighter aircraft, and the heavy bombers that would have been needed. - Richard Evans Immoral Rearmament The New York Review of Books, No. 20, 20 December 2007.
