But Germans have won in 1954: the soccer world cup! Unfortunately for Germans, they didn't have general "von Yamamoto" to tell the bitter truth: "Mein Führer, I can run wild for six months … after that, I have no expectation of success". There are certain conspiracy theories that Hitler has won and lost the war even before Perl Harbour. The truth is that Germany waged a lost war from its begining. Everything else are sour grapes of beaten German generals.
