Answer Because her enemies had at least five times her population, not even counting Britain's empire, and perhaps as much as 20 times her industrial capacity. Against those odds victory was virtually impossible. Then to top it off Adolf Hitler assumed personal command of the German armed forces, a position for which he was utterly unqualified, with the result that the Germans, on his personal orders, made one disastrous strategic mistake after another. Even if the allies had been poorly led they still would have won but they weren't poorly led. They had excellent political leaders and military commanders. Comment In both World Wars the real surprise was that Germany managed to keep fighting for so long. As the above answer indicates, Germany had taken on a vast alliance with immense human, material and industrial resources.
