Why Germany Nearly Won PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Why Germany Nearly Won free pdf Why Germany Nearly Won challenges today's conventional wisdom, which explains Germany's Second World War defeat as inevitable primarily for reasons of Allied economic or military brute force created when Germany attacked the Soviet Union. Taking an entirely new perspective on explaining the Second World War in Europe, and its outcome, at its core Why Germany Nearly Won offers the reader three interrelated, unique, and potentially ground-breaking arguments. First, qualitative differences between the combatants proved more important in determining the war's outcome than have the quantitative brute force measures so commonly discussed in the past. Second, attacking the Soviet Union represented Germany's best opportunity to win a war that according to commonly cited measures of military potential, should have been completely out of Germany's reach. Third, for reasons frequently overlooked and misunderstood Germany came far closer to winning the war than has previously been recognized.
