The biggest difference between Allies and Axis forces during World War 2 was how they controlled their Army Generals.

Hitler always interfered in military affairs after 1941 and gave no freedom to his Generals. The Allies worked the exact opposite way.

We know who won the war.
No matter how brutal Stalin was, he always listened to his Generals especially Zhukov & Vasilevsky. He even made compete with each other.

Hitler on the other hand distrusted his Generals and they distrusted him too. Halder, von Kluge, Witzleben etc.
In short, a country needs a pragmatic leader who knows his strengths and weakness rather than a blind optimistic one.

A leader who lacks military knowledge or history and yet regularly interferes in Armed affairs is a very dangerous thing for a nation.
Page 30-32 of the famous book 'Stalingrad: The Fateful Siege' by Antony Beevor mentions about 16th Panzer Division of the German Army. (The most dangerous division of the Mighty German Sixth Army)

Within the Division - Regiment, the officers used to joke about Hitler and Nazis.
What happened to the 16th Panzer Division & the Mighty German Sixth Army?

The all-conquering army group (Sixth Army) that had the strength of 345,000 elite men was annihilated at Stalingard. Only 4800 survived the war and were destined to see home (Germany) again after the war.
Keep the Army - Armed Forces, Feberal - Reserve Bank & Educational - scientific Institutions out of political Clout.

Any nation which has messed with them, has always paid a huge price. Learn from History.
