Heinz Magenheimer examines in detail the options that were open to the Germans as the war progressed. He identifies the crucial moments at which fateful decisions needed to be taken and considers how decisions different from those actually taken could have propelled the conflict in entirely different directions. Using the very latest source material, in particular new research from Soviet/Russian sources, the author analyses motives and objectives and considers the opportunities taken or rejected, concentrating especially on specific phases of the conflict.

    Not sure what to think of this book. Basically , the author posits several changes in german policy and or stategies that might have changed the passage of the war. But the war was not conducted by a rational person, nor were the real war aims of the Nazis altogether rational. And managing to to go into to detail about Soviet Atrocities without mentioning the holocaust or the total destruction wreaked on the russian population is just sort of grotesque. This book is best when it sticks to strate Not sure what to think of this book.

This book is best when it sticks to strategies and tactics. Certainly interesting for the history enthusiast, a far read for the gamer, and maybe not worth while for the shallow divers into WWII...

    Very good general summary of the Second World War from a German point of view. Contains some interesting analyses of how the war might have evolved if different strategic decisions had been taken along the way - such as capturing Malta and Gibraltar (which could have been easily done in August or September 1940) and thus controlling the Mediterranean and North Africa. Recommended.

    Magenheimer looks at key strategic decisions that might have won the war for the Third Reich. He purposefully sets aside the "moral" issues of the war and looks at it from a military/geo-political perspective. I'd recommend only for historical junkies - not a light read.
