The history of World War II 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 Führer 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 the cracks began to appear. The war machine became vulnerable. 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 mobilized opposition their homicidal ineptitude was large.
Told through expert interviews with historians, sociologists, and military strategists, How the Nazis Lost the War will shed a new light on how we view World War II.
