Andrew Roberts' previous book "Masters and Commanders" studied the creation of Allied grand strategy; "The Storm of War" now analyzes how Axis strategy evolved. Examining the Second World War on every front, Roberts asks whether, with a different decision-making process and a different strategy, the Axis might even have won. Were those German generals who blamed everything on Hitler after the war correct, or were they merely scapegoating their former Fuhrer once he was safely beyond defending himself?
The book is full of illuminating sidelights on the principle actors that bring their characters and the ways in which they reached decisions into fresh focus. About The Author Andrew Roberts's Masters and Commanders was one of the most acclaimed, bestselling history books of He is one of Britain's most prominent journalists and broadcasters.

Then there was Hitler's disastrous handling of operations around and in Stalingrad. His insistence that Paulus's army should fight on and die rather than save themselves and their equipment by effecting a temporary retreat consigned hundreds of thousands of Germans and their allies to their graves or to the gulag.
As Roberts emphasises, Churchill could not resist poking fun at "Corporal Hitler" for his ineptitude. Hitler had form as an inflexible commander. Large quantities of experienced German and Italian soldiers fell into captivity who could otherwise have fought the enemies of the Third Reich in Italy.

Hitler also damaged his cause through his political management. The book makes the interesting point that German Jews would probably have fought patriotically in his army if only he had not spurned them.
A feeling that Germany, after the Versailles treaty of , deserved to expand its territory again was not peculiar to the Nazi party. The scientists who invented the American atomic bomb included several Jewish refugees from the Third Reich. It is also well known that many Ukrainian villages in greeted the German invaders with the traditional welcome of bread and salt.
The Germans allowed churches and private shops, closed under Soviet rule, to be reopened. For a while, it looked as though the Third Reich was exploiting "the national question" in the USSR to great advantage. But Ukrainians soon learnt the truth about Hitler. Grain requisitioning by the Germans was as ruthless as under Stalin. Young, able-bodied people were conscripted for labour service in German factories. Mass executions of Jews, Roma, communists and other suspect groups became a routine affair.
Whether it would have been possible to govern Ukraine gently while continuing to impose a brutal occupation of neighbouring Poland is not clear. But Roberts makes a strong case that Hitler's interventions turned eastern Europe against him.
