In Hitler’s opinion, German culture was superior to other cultures in the world and therefore they have the right to rule the world. Hitler in a speech in 1928 argued that brutality rather than humanity is the basis of life! Man has become master of the world through conflict and continual struggle… But mankind is not a uniform and equal mass. There are differences between races. The Earth has received its culture from elite peoples. what we see today is ultimately the result of the activity and the achievements of the Aryans (Kitson, p.1925) In fact, Hitler did succeed in conquering substantial portions of the world through WW2. Westerners initially tried to conduct negotiations with Hitler or Nazi Germany instead of uniting against the common enemy. All these developments motivated Hitler further and he started to expand his wings further and further. Many people believe that Hitler or Nazi Germany committed a tactical blunder which finally cost them victory in WW2. Nazi Germany was not much interested in attacking Soviet Union initially even though communism was indigestible to Hitler. Hitler and Joseph Stalin actually signed an agreement. not to attack each other at the time of WW2. However, the above agreement caused problems later for Hitler and finally resulted in the downfall of Nazi Germany and Hitler. This paper analyses what would have happened if Hitler attacked Soviet Union at the beginning of WW2. In 1938 an international crisis developed around Czechoslovakia, populated mostly by ethnic Germans known as Sudetenland, has started to shake the global peace and Hitler has threatened to go to war with Czechoslovakia unless so-called Sudetenland was immediately ceded to Germany.

Instead of responding aggressively to Hitler’s claims, global powers like Britain and France tried settle the issue with the help of negotiations. The dialogues between Hitler, Chamberlain and Daladier (the French prime minister) with the help of Mussolini as mediator settled the issue amicably. At least the European thought that the issue was over. However, it was the beginning of other major problems. Hitler started to make more claims up on more areas in Europe after tasting victory in the Sudetenland issue. He has realized that majority of the Europeans countries were afraid of German power and therefore he can expand German territories to more areas. At dawn on September 1, 1939, the German army launched a ferocious assault across the Polish border. By October 6, it was all over. Poland ceased to exist as a country. World War II had begun (The Nazi Occupation of Poland). The invasion of Poland was quiet unexpected to countries such as France, Britain, Australia etc. In fact this attack served as eye opener to European countries and they started realize the threat from Nazi Germans for their sovereignty. Making all Hitler’s calculation wrong, Britain, France, Australia and New Zealand declared war against Germany as Germany rejected the call for immediate withdrawal from Poland.
