What if the German Armed Forces had not been so inept? Pick your favorite gripe with the German Armed Forces and their leadership; Heer, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, SS. Tell us your opinion on one engagement, a campaign, or the entire war. Was it their equipment, their officers, their staff, their training, their logistical organization? Let's leave Hitler pretty much out of the discussion. We all know that he had the biggest role in the defeat of Germany during the war. What would the forces themselves and their command have done that would have saved them from being considered inept? I'll get it started with an opinion or two below. Might even play devil's advocate just to see if I can ge tsome juice flowing.
