If both Axis powers have surrendered and the point spread between the highest score and the lowest score is 16 points, the player who goes first always wins for any amount of the dice, right?

Thank´s

Hard to roll less than a 1, so yes...

So, the condition 1 could be:
"If both Axis powers have surrendered and
the point spread between the highest score and the lowest score
is 16 (not 15) or less, then the player with the most VPs wins the game".
Is that right?

Yes. Essentially, any score difference of 16 or less will be an auto-win for the higher scorer.

I suppose the rule could've been written differently so that a difference of 16 VPs could be handled as a special case, but it would've unnecessarily complicated the wording.


Interestingly, here are the probabilities of the high-scorer winning the game with a Condition 2 victory, depending on the delta between the highest and lowest scores:

Score Difference & Probability of a win (Condition 2)
≤16 = 100% Probability of winning
17 = 83%
18 = 67%
19 = 50%
20 = 33%
21 = 17%
22≥ = 0%
