An in-depth and listenable scholarly rebuttal of the West's long-held belief that Nazi Germany was defeated solely due to Soviet weight of numbers and Hitler's meddling in military affairs. Beliefs coloured by postwar German memoirs shown to be inaccurate, the paucity of postwar material from a necessarily totalitarian Soviet state, plus the Western Cold War reflex to repudiate Russian WW2 competence and battlefield superiority. So the myth of Wehrmacht military superiority took firm root in the public consciousness. This revision of that misperception is a fascinating explanation of how this came about.
