Download PDF for this date

Eleven of Hitler’s former generals and admirals have published a book saying that Hitler’s lack of strategic insight caused the loss of World War II and blaming him for not invading the Middle East, including Palestine.

The book, entitled “Balance of World War II,” appeared here today as a work containing the collective views of some of hte Third Reich’s top military and civilian experts. The book was seen by observers to be aimed at outlining mistakes to be avoided in future German military campaigns.
