    Germany could have beaten Russia if they had set Moscow as their sole objective. Treating the conquered locals properly would have placed immense human capital at their disposal.

    They lost the war in 1941.

    But don't get me started....

    russia used the only things at its disposal at the time (1941), manpower and a huge country. they ceded land while drawing the nazis deeper into russia as fall/winter approached and bought time...

    ya, russia was a logistical nightmare for hitler.
    i used to have a german woman clean our offices & she was a young girl back in post war germany. she told me that when the russians were in town, they raped & pillaged & everyone feared & hated those assholes. she said that when the american boys got there it was fucking awesome & those guys would do all they could to help the local families & communities.:cool:

    they were so close to conquering russia,but my point is they should have stayed allies.together they had all of europe,part of africa,once they got the uk together with japan would have overwelmed america eventually

    I think you are forgetting about the atomic bombs that the US developed. All of that still would have happened and Germany was not even close to developing theirs.
