The necessary summing-up is best left to one of the later volumes—when accounts covering the eastern front, events in the Balkans and northern Europe, operations in Italy, and the war at sea have been given—before dealing with the advance of the Allies into Germany and the collapse of the Third Reich.

After suffering substantial setbacks on the eastern front, the German armies managed to stabilize the situation for only a short while. At sea, the stark imbalance between the Kriegsmarine’s own losses and the Allied shipping sunk meant that the U-boats had to be withdrawn from the North Atlantic; the Luftwaffe revealed its inability not only to mount any major operations against Britain and give adequate support to the war on land, but also to protect the homeland against the massed attacks by enemy bombers; the war in North Africa was lost, with heavy German and Italian casualties.
