Germany had strategy and leadership that was unmatched at the time. If Germany had sought only for balance to post-war reparations to France, rather than complete take over and genocide, the country may have been able to make a point that they were tired of the oppression after WWI. However, the ideologies German used were rooted in hate and imperialism. The military strategies and compelling leadership in Germany were misguided by hatred for the Jewish Community. The need for complete domination of Europe frightened other powers throughout the world, the Allies and ultimately led to the strengthening of the Allied alliance and intervention. Had Germany not been insatiable and tyrannical and murderous, perhaps the Third Reich could have achieved something different. Japan was under the impression that after Pearl Harbor the U.S. would lean toward a strategy of peace and succumb to the kamikaze strategy. This was naive. Japan likely would not have been able to triumph without support of many other nations. The country could not have achieved success without important negotiations. Abandoning the idea of compromise led to the nuclear bombings and ultimately their loss.
