How Did Western Allies Ability To Defend Germany's Victory
By the time the Central Europe Campaign had begun, Allies victory in Europe was destined to happen. Hitler had gambled his ability to defend Germany on the Battle of the Bulge and lost. Although Western Allies still had to quarrel for victory, he no longer possessed the strength to halt Allied armies. The crossing of the Rhine, the encirclement and diminution of the

    The defeat of Germany in World War Two was due to many factors. All of these factors were influenced by the leadership and judgment of Adolf Hitler. Factors such as the stand fast policy, Hitler's unnecessary and risky decision making in military situations, for example when attacking the USSR, and the declaration of war on the US. Plus other factors, like Hitler's alliance with Italy, despite its obvious weaknesses, and the pursuit of the final solution, can all be attributed to the poor leadership and judgement of the Fuhrer, which would eventually lead to the downfall of the Third Reich.…

    As the European War progressed, early German advances and gains were decreasing by the mid-years of the war as it became evident the tide was turning against the Axis powers and in favour of the Allies. Operation Barbarossa and the entire Russian campaign can be seen as one significant turning point that helped to change the course of the war and yet it can be argued that this was not the sole and most major turning point. The Battle of Britain in the air war and the Battle of El Alamein in North Africa have also been labeled as turning points in the war due to their significance and the contribution they have equally played, along with Operation Barbarossa, in assisting the eventual Allied victory.…

    One of the main reasons for German victory over this period of time was the fact that her enemies were weak and ill-prepared for war. Holland, Belgium, Poland Denmark and Norway were all weak countries, not known for their military strength. Hitler found it easy to invade these countries as they had a fraction of the military power he had. They were all quickly defeated by a mixture of speed, co-ordination and sheer strength. They were defenceless to do anything about it as their armies were tiny compared to…

    Firstly, Germany is surrounded by nations capable of fighting Germany. Always has been that way. Oppositions were clever enough to realize Germany was strong enough to fight one mighty opponent, but might be in deep trouble if they had to fight two or more at the same time. Hitler realized that too. But he didn 't have a choice. He tried to get what he wanted little by little. Until the Allies realized there was no end to it. Hitler then grabbed Poland in a deal with the USSR: they split the country. That gave him time to fight only in the west. This worked but didn’t include the conquest of Britain. Conquering England would be nice, but not vital. The USSR was seen highly dangerous at that time as well. So Hitler decided to strike first before Stalin did it and that made it a multiple front war. At first the Germans seemed to be winning, but fighting on three fronts (defense in the west, some forces in Africa and the major offensive against the USSR) was too much. The western front was an air war with Brittan. The eastern front was with the Soviet Union. A southern front could also be included in Italy and Africa. Germany had a war on multiple fronts just like in WW I. If Germany had invaded Brittan or never started a war with the Soviet Union there would have been only a single…

    The war was supposed to start and end with the Germans properly executing the Schlieffen Plan, a pincer attack on France to neutralize the French, and dissuade the British from joining the war. Had the Plan been successful, the German military would have quickly crossed to the East before the Russians could mobilize, crush them, and return home to fanfare. That particular strategy did not happen. The German military failed spectacularly due to poor mobilization, and an over estimation of traversable roads. Instead of enveloping Paris and much of France, the Schlieffen Plan turned inward far too early, violated Belgian neutrality, and created havoc. The havoc and…

    The Ardennes

    World War II started because of the Germans, Italy, and Japan wanting to expand their borders across the world. The European powers that did not agree with the vision of the Axis powers formed what we know today as the Allies. The Allies and Axis had many long battles. Ultimately leading up to the start of World War II was full of long lasting battles. Lots of those battles ended in a stale mate. The Allies were able to gain back most of the land that the Axis had claimed. Hitler, the Kaiser of Germany, proposed a plan to his generals. Most of the generals thought Hitler was out of his mind with this counter attack but Hitler had a goal “A unification of the individual German states and tribes or even the construction of a German Empire in the sense of a unified state.” Hitler’s goal was to bring Germany back to a world power. Bringing Germany back to power it once had would mean the control of Europe. After many long battle the Allies had the Germans backed up to a breaking point. The Germans then devised a plan for a counter attack. This counter attack would be known as the Ardennes where the Panzer armies were used to strike the Allied forces and halt their advances. The Ardennes, a forest between Belgium and Germany,…

    Germany's Secret Operations Hitler and his army pounded Europe with their army, air, and naval forces during World War II with no signs of letting up. Germany appeared as though they had really pressed the offensive by attacking with numbers, numerous times with no apparent end in sight. After being subjected to the German military and it's tactics so many times, one would think that the Allies would have a pretty clear view of what Germany had and what to expect. But Germany continued to keep the opposition guessing on what they would do next. It was like a magician show. Germany had its blitzkrieg in one hand, while the other hand held the torturing of Jews, experiments on them, and looting of their gold and property at the same time.…
