"This is an intriguing book that will surely be of great interest to students of World War II. It offers a fresh analysis of why Germany was beaten and poses reasons why it should have won." - WWII History, August 2013 "Mercatante's views might be challenged...but his scholarship is undoubtedly on solid ground, which makes this book a welcome addition to Second World War bibliography."- Jules Stewart, Military History Monthly "There are plenty of books which postulate the opinion of 'what if' Germany had won the war, but this book is different. Firstly, the opinion of the title is based on solid research to present a sound argument. The facts and figures support the case and for anyone who enjoys learning about how much oil it took to keep armies in the field and how much food to feed them will find this book fascinating. The sheer scale of the industrialisation to fight WWII was incredible and losses were frightening. For example the Soviets built 98,300 tanks and SPGs between 1941 and 1945 and lost 96,500 in battle. The author reminds the reader how costly the air war was and how Germany was able to keep going for so long by adapting to the situation. This is a book which holds the attention and makes for an excellent reference work."- Pete Moore, gunmart.netVom Verlag:
The book begins by examining topics such as the methods by which the German economy and military prepared for war, the German military establishment's formidable strengths, and its weaknesses. The book then takes an entirely new perspective on explaining the Second World War in Europe. It demonstrates how Germany, through its invasion of the Soviet Union, came within a whisker of cementing a European-based empire that would have allowed the Third Reich to challenge the Anglo-American alliance for Global hegemony
