A reference that Hitler believed that Britain would fold? Just because some may think he actually had no way of directly defeating the British doesn't mean he didn't think, in his own mind, they(the Brits) were done for. Hitler believed the democratic nations weak and vulnerable, as evidenced by the fact that he had no reservations on acquiring and reacquiring foreign land and building up the German military directly against the treaty of Versailles. He assumed no direct military action would be taken and until Poland was invaded, he was correct. His quick work of the British expeditionary force and the French forces only had to reinforce his mind that defeating the democratic nations was just a matter of time. Also, isn't attacking the red army without Britain defeated evidence enough that he was not worried about Britain as a true problem? I will cite the documentary I posted above again but this time clip 9:37-10:01. Weather or not it is credible I suppose is debatable. If you deem the documentary "World War II in Colour" by Martin not accurate. I would love to see your sources that contradict what is discussed as that is the point of me being involved in these forums in the first place.
