Good question. One I'd like to see someone try to answer.
I know the answer. A certain megalomaniacal psychopath with delusions of godhood thought that because he fought in the trenches of WWI that made him
a military genius--he wasn't, thank goodness...Churchill was much the same, though his was South Africa during the Boer War (I think...). Churchill
had military advisers that would tell him "No, Winston, no...good PM, go lie down now." ((I wonder if anyone will catch the reference?))
The Germans did come up with some incredible stuff, no doubt...the Allies didn't need to. They came up with weapons that were good enough, and easily
built, to win the war of logistics. They got there, in the words of Nathan Bedford Forrest, "firstest, with the mostest.". It helped that they had
two unassailable, and massive, industrial bases, the U.S. and Soviet Union, to draw upon.
Logistics won the Second World War.
