The Heer 1941 How Capable?

#2
I have always thought that the question should be, "The Allies: How Inept?" We spent 1943 slugging through Italy, but the Central European Campaign was a virtually American show. Even more than WW1, Germany ran roughshod over the French and British in 1940, putting the lie to the Conventional Wisdom that the AEF was a sideshow. Even with Roosevelt II doing everything he could to get America in the war, by the Spring of 41 Germany was master of the continent. I'd go further: by the Fall of 1940, England was down to holding out. The exclusive reason Germany didn't conquer England was a complete lack of strategic air power. The Blitz was a foolhardy attempt to accomplish strategic goals with tactical airpower.
