Having won an unprecedented series of victories and acuired huge new territories in 1942 Germany and Japan seemed poised to dominate most of the world A year lat Just as the title indicates this is a thorough examination of how WWII the outcome of which was decidedly uncertain before late 1943 or so ended the way it did Overy is a masterful and convincing historian who over the course of 330 pages lays out a cogent argument based on everything from economy and materiel production to the warped philosophy of the Axis powers It’s impossible to distill the mass of fascinating information into a paragraph but there are a few main points that especially ring trueThe first is of course the industrial production of the USA and USSR unmatched by any of the Axis powers Overy argues that America’s capitalist society and the Soviet centralized dictatorship where ideally suited to maximize their vast resources while Hitler’s less focused competitive dictatorship failed to make the most of Germany’s limited resources A telling example is when Hitler’s armies took Soviet oil fields but then had no engineers to make the oil available to Germany so it made no change in their production Overy further argues that the Allied powers made simple reliable mass produced weapons and kept a healthy ratio of mechanics on hand The opposite was true of the Germany industrial complex which was fixated on ever newer technologies so obsolescence and difficulty of repair became issues as the war progressed Overy concludes that even Germany’s much vaunted missile program which was inarguably years ahead of anything the Allies had was “a lost cause” for these reasons impressive yes but not a war winnerThe second main theme is the rapid learning curve of the allied powers who learned from their many early defeats and focused intently on producing only what was needed to win The Germans and Japanese by contrast had a very slow learning curve and coasted on early victories believing that their militaristic will to power philosophy made victory a foregone conclusion This learning curve extended to every facet of the war – improvements in bombing defense codes and so on ensured the Allies’ early losses were not often repeatedThe final main theme that run through the whole book though it’s not made as explicit as the others is the mindset of the various leaders Churchill Roosevelt and Stalin had many philosophical and strategical differences but were able to work in lock step for the single goal of destroying Nazism utterly Hitler had no such restraint unable to maintain even the farce of an alliance with Stalin until the war in the west had been concluded Stalin for all his faults promoted reliable men wanted to hear the unvarnished truth about how the war was progressing and allowed himself to be overruled when it came to important strategic decisions Hitler famously removed officers who told him bad news and insisted on micro managing the war Perhaps the best example of how much this hurt Germany was Hitler’s insistence on treating the Normandy landings lightly thinking they were only a ruse until it was far too late In all this is an inexhaustibly fascinating book one sure to promote argument among WWII buffs for its calm reasoned analysis and sometimes unexpected conclusions
