When Hitler gave up on the battle of Britain and redirected his attention to Russia is where he lost the war. He couldn't beat the brits in the air, but if had continued with his invasion force, Britain could have done nothing to stop it.
I'm truly glad he gave up his ambition for the island. That is what saved the rest of the world.
The facts we aren't often told about the war, 600,000 civilians were killed in the bombing of dresden. The World )ewry declared holy war on germany in 1934. 2million elderly women and children were raped for weeks at a time by the allies after the war was over. over 1million germans starved to death because the americans and soviets wanted them to suffer. millions more in POW camps were murdered. The members of waffen SS were brutalised until they confesed then they were often murdered. The germans resisted the allies for 3 years after losing, for every ally killed they would kill 10's of german civilian. If you were suspected of being a rebel, you would be shot on the spot. If you killed 1 soviet person, 200 germans would be killed. Absolutely atrocious. A little strange that an even labelled as "fact" can lead to a lengthy prison sentance if you question it.
However the election of Obama changes all that.
This is nonsense to you because you reject the Bible
Hitler was an evil genius.
Also perhaps if Japan had attacked the Soviet Union from the East

It sure appears to me Hitler won the war.
I do after all live in a nation that some how, some way, managed to end up with something called a Homeland Security Department?

The panel was supposed to draw the line between scientists who had joined the Nazi party to avoid persecution and ones who truly believed in it, but the ugly truth was that much Third Reich research had itself been a war crime. The Dora concentration camp had supplied slave labor for the Nordhausen missile works, where prisoners had been fed a single piece of bread a day and literally worked to death by the thousands. Aviation doctors had suffocated gypsies in pressure chambers and force-fed Jews nothing but seawater for weeks to determine what pilots could withstand.
A tug of war began between two sides in the U.S. government—one angling to import German scientists and one readying to try some of the same men at Nuremberg. In the end the Paperclip panel ignored or cleaned up the backgrounds of several scientists they believed too valuable to send to prison. One historian estimates that as many as 80 percent of the 765 scientists imported between 1945 and 1955 were Nazi party or SS members. Three later fled or were deported under suspicion of war crimes, including Arthur Rudolph, who was instrumental in developing the rockets that powered the Apollo missions.
But Paperclip, which continued until as late as 1973, left behind another, darker legacy. The program’s architects were sometimes willing to build on the results of often deadly Nazi research on captive human subjects. Working with Paperclip scientists, researchers hoping to develop a truth serum at the Edgewood Arsenal, in Maryland, tested psychoactive drugs on almost 7,000 unwitting American soldiers between 1955 and 1975. Those experiments, and Paperclip itself, were among the first manifestations of what became a guiding principle of the Cold War, that the ends sometimes justified the means.
Intelligence and government officials faced a delicate moral quandary in 1945—whether it was worth it to give American homes to men who had invented weapons to kill American soldiers, men who in some cases subscribed to beliefs that hundreds of thousands Americans had died to eradicate. In the end they decided it was, if these men could help the United States defeat the Soviets.

It is funny how his generals so brilliantly planned the first year of the war, and then he goes and interferes and makes all the military decisions (the wrong ones). He didn't plan for a long war and turns around and DOW's Russia and the US in the same year. They started out with a huge lead in technology and were a year away from a nuke at the end, and likely would have it in 45 if he didn't take on the entire world.
We were lucky he was such a fool.
