Many historians believe Germany lost World War I because they had to fight two frontlines, one on the east with Russia, and one on the west with England and France. Another reason cited by historians is that when the German U-boats began sinking supply ships the English people were better prepared to deal with shortages. The English created ration programs and the woman’s army to help with food distribution. However, when the German ports were blockaded, the Germans did not handle the supply shortages as successfully as the English. Eventually, the German people and soldiers were starving, had little clothing or cleaning supplies and were suffering from all sorts of diseases. Their will to keep fighting was broken.
Germany lost World War II because Hitler made poor decisions such as invading Russia and abandoning Field Marshall Rommel in Africa. Also, Germany’s military equipment was complex and hard to manufacture and maintain. Hitler would never retreat, wasn’t prepared for resistance, and was so cruel his enemies would stop at nothing to destroy him.
