If you want to discover the captivating history of Operation Barbarossa, then keep reading…
On June 22nd, 1941, Nazi Germany launched Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union. In the time since the end of the war, the world has become familiar with the number of deaths sustained by the Soviet Union (also known as the USSR) during the conflict—twenty-million.
And that’s likely low, given the size of the country, census taking at the time, and the damage done to the bureaucracy of the country. Adolf Hitler invaded the Soviet Union with over three million men.
The Soviets had just under that number in the western section of their country to meet them, as well as millions more elsewhere, which was something Hitler did not count on and grossly underestimated.
The struggle between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany was one of the largest and deadliest conflicts of all time, a war of elimination between totalitarian nations led by two of the most ruthless leaders in the history of the world.
