T he Soviet Union’s power o f resistance, which, at enormous sacrifice and despite serious initial errors by the command, caused the foundering of the German leadership’s operational and economic aims towards the end of 19 41, dispelled Hitler’ s illusion o f being once more able to conduct a war on one front only. By the end of the year all that was beyond discussion for the top leaders in the O KW and the O K H . This meant basically that—in spite of later partial successes and in spite o f subsequent upswings in the war economy— the decision had already gone against Germany.

Even then he did not tie himself down to a final timetable; by November, however, the separate elements o f his estima tion o f the situation had hardened into a definitive decision.

Warning voices carried no weight in the German Führer system: they were effortlessly supplanted by optimistic forecasts. Careful study o f the sources has revealed the extent to which military and economic or technological inadequacies mutually conditioned and magnified each other.
