I have always been curious as to how Nazi germany could have had a better chance of beating the USSR in WW2.
Some of my thoughts are:
Implementing a broad based manufacturing sector operating at a war footing.
Strategic bombing capability.
Increased production of more tanks and assault guns per month particularly with long 50mm and 75mm barrels for the pz3, pz4 tanks before invasion.
Nazi racial policy more realistic to the circumstances in the USSR ( a remote chance I believe).
I realise of course lack of resources and oil were critical factors but surely things could have been organised better instead of the myriad of competing interests increasing waste and delays.
What do you think could have been done different to realistically improve their chances of winning or at least a negotiated settlement?
Just for the record I am in no way a Nazi sympathiser or racist, just have an interest in military history particularly WW2.
