Hitler lost.

History is proverbially written by winners, with the interesting exception of the War Between the States.

I'm of the opinion that this adage hasn't been true since the middle of the 20th century.

In the case of the US Civil War it never was.

Winston Churchill wrote a five (or is it six) volume exhaustive history of WWII himself.
And while you won't find any pro-Axis serious historical works these days, there are plenty that are not so nice to Winston.
