Episode 9: Fox Killed in the Open

Like a tower built on a poor foundation, Hitler’s empire was not sustainable. First off, the Battle of Britain was a failure, the British were not defeated and remained as indignant as ever.

For whatever reason a protracted war of attrition did not interest him so he turned his gaze away from the islands and toward Russia.
