Delay, failure, and, ultimately, defeat: those were the results of these 16 crucial mistakes by military and political leaders. From Hitler's postponement of the invasion of Britain, to ineptitude in the Western desert, from errors in the Battle of the Atlantic to the Japanese mistakes in the Pacific, see how an entire army's downfall can hinge on one momentous decision.
