Not to mention he HANDPICKED Rommel and Manstein from relative anonymity and propelled them into limelight as field marshals! He was right about French being lazy and tired despite having equivalent Army etc. He was lucky as he escaped 30 or so assassinations. He had hadn't forgotten to marry Braun in last days of life. He let everyone go (Himmler, Goering, Speer...) from surrounded Berlin although he didn't have to and addressed Speer as gentlemen wishing him farewell. Then it must have come as a great surprise to him to realise that he was losing the war in the last couple of years before he, no coward, committed suicide because he couldnt face the reality crowding in on him as a spectacularly unsuccessful war leader.
