Example text

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.

That war was Hitler’s real war. This judgement agrees with that o f those authors who are willing to see a link between ‘ programme’ and realities while, at the same time, conceding that there can be no question o f compulsive implementation o f a programme.

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.

It has become clear that political, military, and economic expectations in this war, which outclassed all prior misplannings in German political and military history, had been illusory. 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.
