Part 3 Operation Barbarossa: stupid boy- did you forget that it is winter now, and this is my house?
stirringwind: Operation Barbarossa: stupid boy- did you forget that it is winter now, and this is my house? One of the major turning points of WW2! Hitler’s attempts to invade the Soviet Union, codenamed Barbarossa- ended disastrously and shattered the image of Nazi invincibility. They initially made good progress- until General Winter came to the aid of Russia. Still, the winter wasn’t abnormally colder than other years- plus the Soviets had to contend with the exact same conditions.
Prt. 2 On August 1991, several Soviet hardliners tried to overthrow Gorbachev, but were thwarted by Boris Yeltsin and Russian protesters. The USSR was formally dissolved on 26th December 1991.Though, the irony is that the uneven economic development today has led to discontent with the present system and some nostalgia for the past greatness of the Soviet Union. So although Ivan killed this part of him, it’s still somewhere inside his head.
Hetalia England, do want that umbrella. -- It's funny, I used a picture of that exact umbrella on my English PowerPoint last year. Weird how these things pop up.
stirringwind:... Hitler, however, was so convinced of Soviet inferiority that he believed the conquest of the USSR would be long over before the winter set in. So there was no proper logistical planning: the Wehrmacht had no winter uniforms, and were unprepared for fighting in conditions below freezing point- compared to the Soviets who were well-used to such weather and had specially adapted their uniforms, guns and tanks to the winter...
