Hitler’s big mistake was declaring war on the US. An arrogant move with little to be gained from a German POV given that they already had Western Europe in lockdown and were focused on fighting the Soviets in the East. The US hadn’t much stomach to get involved in Europe. He should have left them and the Japanese to go at it by themseves.
The US was worried about Soviet hegemony, although the increasing influence of Japan in the Pacific was also a concern. They didn't really give two shits about western Europe.
No they weren't, that is bollocks.
