Hitler’s Lost Battles

In 1944, the British considered assassinating Adolf Hitler. But then they decided that he was such a useless warlord, he was more useful alive than dead. The Battle of Britain, the Battle of Stalingrad, the offensive at Kursk and the Battle of the Ardennes all rank among the disastrous decisions taken by Hitler. Caught up in a frenzy of anger, paranoia, drugs or fear, he often went against the advice of his generals.
