    Hitler's Greatest World War II Mistake: Trying to Capture Moscow

    "His gamble failed.

    It was Hitler's gamble that proved fatal. 1941 and 1942 would be the last years that the Germans had the luxury of waging a one-front war.

    In October 1941, the Second World War teetered on a knife edge.

    There was war in China and war in North Africa, and soon there would be war between America and Japan. But in the autumn of 1941, the only war that really seemed to matter was fought in a portion of central Russia.
