In 1941, Hitler embarked on the assault of the Soviet Union, a nation that he felt responsible to crush for the purpose of securing Germany’s Eastern flank, as well as for the liquidation of the Jewish tainted Bolshevism of the land. He was convinced, or perhaps he convinced himself, that a country such as the Soviet Union, administered by Godless Jews, was a lumbering giant, prone to fall at the slightest breeze.

At the same time, Hitler declared war on the United States, determined to back Japan in a war against what he considered as a fight between the pure spiritualists of Japan against the Jewish controlled America. Positive that the Soviet Union would fall like a domino, Hitler had made very little preparations for a long drawn winter campaign; and more alarmingly, despite the resources he had, he had not mobilized Germany’s economic and manufacturing capacity for a long-drawn war against the Allied nations.

Initially, the German forces won a succession of significant victories, providing cannon fodder for the Nazi propaganda machine. Hitler may well claim a measure of the credit for the early acclaim won by the German forces’ bold stratagems, but the Allies soon wised up. And that was as far as it went for Hitler, as suddenly, under pressure, his tactical decisions grew progressively more disjointed, and reactionary.

In Russia, he spread his forces to thin and his armies had problems following his whimsical and erratic orders. Interestingly again, Hitler was not willing to wage a political war against the Soviets’ Communist system by restoring to Russian peasants the private title of their land, as he was convinced that these peasants were also contaminated Jewish sub-humans.

In 1943, 3 German battalions yielded at Stalingrad; another German-Italian force capitulated to the British and Americans in Northern Africa, and from then onwards, the German’s might waned, until Germany tottered into disaster. As the Allies eventually poured into Berlin and after a failed last-ditch defense efforts by the army, Hitler committed suicide in his underground bunker, together with his newly wedded wife, Eva Braun on April 30th 1945.

Hitler death - April 30, 1945

A failed artist, a poor leader, an insipid military tactician, a demented soul – Adolf Hitler will forever be remembered as the very personification of evil itself. While his death will never ease the pain borne by the millions and the surviving families of the dead, there is a certain comfort in knowing that after all said and done, he died as a coward.
