What is in your opinion Hitlers biggest mistake? Perhaps you think he should have started the war a couple of years later, or shouldn't he have let the luftwaffe take care dunkirk? Or maybe he should have invaded britain first before he started to attack the sovjet union? Should he maybe have gone for Moscow, instead of heading south to the oilfields?

The list goes on and on, but what was his biggest mistake?

Personally, I would have waited longer to invade the sovjet union and increased the number of men fighting for the control of britain, that way the subs could have total control over the atlantic and the Americans would not be able to help in the invasion of normandy (so I think Hitlers biggest mistake was the invasion of the sovjet union)

I think his biggest mistake was to keep the panzers back at Dunkirk. If he had let them move onto the beach he would of crushed the whole BEF and invaded Britian and maybe won the Second World War.

Such a long list... so little time...

1. Calling off his airforce from attacking the Dunkirk convoy. And a part is also to blame Rommel for. After Rommel defeated the last big Allied counterattack at Arras he gave his men a days rest but if he didn't do that there could have been German panzers on Dunkirk that same day!

2. Using a battered Airforce to invade Russia. Also a second front made his troops to widespread. (85% of all Axis forces were stationed on the Eastern front untill the war ended...) He should have first taken care off Britain, thus securing his rulership of Europe.

3. Declaring war on America. Alltough Japan and Germany were Allied, the partnership didn't include that Germany was forced to also declare war against America...

4. The Sturmgewehr could have reached the front by end '42 if Hitler didn't personally oppose this weapon. The Germans still tried to secretly make it under the guise of MP-43/MP-44 referring to machinepistole; an SMG. But Hitler found out and productino was oncemore halted. But by '44 they were finally able to cinvince Hitler to allow it and it was named Stg.44 oncemore.

5. Opposing jet fighters. This was probably Hitler's dumbest decision ever. Imagine, Germany could have had jet fighters that were immensly supperior to other planes way back in 1940! And later on it was Hitlers obsession and he demanded that the ME-262 would be able to carry a 500kg bomb. By the end of the war mass production of jet fighter finally began but for Germany this was too little, too late.

Hitler's biggest mistake........ buying that tacky golden viking lamp for 200 deutsch marks......

But i think it was the genocide of the jews...... after all instead of exterminating them he could've drafted them into the war effort instead.

Hmm...Hitler's biggest mistake eh?

How about this one, Thinking a corporal could do a field marshall's job? ;)

Here's a bigger one, how about never realizing that Enigma might have been comprimised and changing it completely? Heh, even the Soviet Union was using that code for a while after WWII, they didn't even realize that England had cracked it ;) But I do give credit to the British for keeping the Ultra secret, that code single handedly defeated Germany, no two ways around it. But seriously, even the most foolproof code shouldn't be used for more than a year, tops, because of the fact that it could be cracked without you knowing it, although I'm not sure how the German military didn't realize it had been comprimised, I mean hell, the British were /always/ where they needed to be once that was accomplished.
