Tough question...  I would point to three incidents that led to the fall of Hitler.  I guess you could say that the one that came first was the beginning of his fall.

To me, there are three major points that lead to Hitler's fall.  They are:

  1. The failure to win the Battle of Britain.  By not defeating Britain, Hitler allowed Britain to remain as a potential haven for enemies and staging ground for an invasion of Europe.
  2. Invading the Soviet Union.  This took too many resources and ended up depleting them without any benefits.
  3. Declaring war on the US.  Hitler didn't need to do this.  When he did, he made an enemy of a country with huge resources.  This ended up dooming him.
