_ The Initial Attack on Russia (which broke the Non-Aggression Pact) on June 22, 1941 Led by Von Paulos
Although Stalin was warned, he did nothing and was caught off guard
The first attacks were masterful and the Soviets pushed back
They Captured Leningrad/Keiv, 50 miles from Moscow and Russians retreat to Moscow, and started to practice the scorched earth policy
Then the Russian Winter hits.
It is the Coldest in 50 years
German Machines all freeze
Germans are basically not ready for winter
Thousands of Germans end up died from the cold
The attack on Moscow fails (50miles) Reason: Siberian soldiers and weather
Germans attack on Russia. Because the Germans had to help Italy with their invasion, time was set back two moths. This forced them to fight through the winter. Germany lost. If Germany won some say they would still be in power today.
