Yes. Hitler fooled the Brits and French on the Polish invasion ... Brits has also failed in their assessment of Hiler's intention going by his pre war activities, propaganda and hate rate ...The first biggest mistake he made was to lie about not invading Poland despite a written promise to the French and Brits. From that time on no non-Axis power would ever trust Hitler again. And the sudden invasion of his own ally the USSR sealed Hitler's fate as an absolute liar, land grabber, ruthless warmonger who will not be satisfied until he gets the whole of Europe under German control. The Aryan race after all was supreme, Jews, Slavs and whoever else are damned.
If Hitler had not attacked the Russians with whom he had signed a treaty just a year back, he could have hold on for a longer period of time, the Americans were still reluctant to commit fully into full fledged war in Europe ...
Hitlers greed for territory and false notion of race superiority was its downfall ... Personally I feel Germans got away lightly with 10 Millions or so casualty .... The punishment should have been so heavy no others could think of such misadventure in next 1000 years ...
