And Hitler was lucky. France and England simply lacked the willingness to stop him when he violated treaties and his word and entered the Rhineland and Austria and Czechoslavakia. His own generals believed Hitler would be swatted down on any of these occasions, but he was not and was thus encouraged to go on and on.
At Dunkirk he could have wiped out the British and French armies. Instead, he stopped the tanks. Some historians have speculated that he consulted his phrenologist or his astrologer and was advised to be cautious because the stars were in the wrong alignment. In Russian he ordered wrong moves and timing. He eschewed the jet fighters that could have defeated the RAF, in favor of rockets that did not work so well against British targets. And so it goes.
This video uses evidence from men who were there, men who saw the errors as they happened and knew that Hitler was no mad genius. Mad, yes--genius no. Rather he had convinced too many Germans, through his voice, to be afraid of crossing him. They paid dearly for their fear of him--in lives, in destroyed cities, in loss of respect from a more civilized world.
If you do get a better, higher ranked, documentary, I would suggest adding this one to the cart simply because of its value. I will add no more as there are several lengthy reviews giving you the details of the doc.
BUT - let's face it, you have made it here - so you have interest in the topic. It will be hard to beat the value here anywhere.
