As the seat of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 and a centre of Soviet industry, Leningrad was a prime target of Hitler's Russian invasion. Supported by the Finns, intent on recovering territory they had lost in the Finnish-Soviet Winter war the previous year, Nazi forces rapidly broke through the city's lines of defence, many cobbled together by its civilian population.

This film - which features rarely seen archive footage now digitally restored - explores the Siege of Leningrad, which lasted from 1941 to 1944. It was one of the longest and most destructive sieges in history and one that claimed the most casualties.

Hitler's War The Eastern Front - ''The Death Trap''

This video is here in case other copies of it are somehow lost (eg channel closure, Youtube's strange history of taking stuff down etc). A terrible account of the last days on the Eastern Front. By this time STuGs made up a very large percentage of available German armour. But the task was hopeless and nearly every STuG was destroyed or abandoned after running out of fuel.

In the summer of 1941 German army was the strongest in Europe and was preparing to use its superiority to defeat the Soviet Union in a three-month lightning campaign. The Soviets, on the other hand, were preparing for a long war and had built up a strong war economy, but the modernization and expansion of the Red Army was still underway and its methods and organization were not yet fully tested in battle. Can the Wehrmacht damage the Soviet Union enough to prevent a recovery or can the Soviets hold until their long-term advantages start to have a strong impact on the war?

Russians Stop the German Invasion of the Soviet Union | World War 2 Newsreel | 1941

✚ Watch my WW2 in Europe PLAYLIST:


This 1941 short film – originally titled as Soviet Fights Back! Russia Stops Hitler! – is an amazing American newsreel about how the Russians stopped the German eastward advance, the invasion of the Soviet Union (Operation Barbarossa) during World War 2. It features Russian footage with English narration.

When this film was made, the United States has not yet entered the war. (The US remained officially neutral and refused to enter the war until after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.) Despite deep-seated mistrust and hostility between the Soviet Union and the Western democracies, Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941 created an instant alliance between the Soviets and the two greatest powers in what the Soviet leaders had long called the imperialist camp: Britain and the United States. Three months after the invasion, the United States extended assistance to the Soviet Union through its Lend-Lease Act of March 1941. Lend-Lease was the most visible sign of wartime cooperation between the United States and the Soviet Union.


HISTORICAL BACKGROUND / CONTEXT

Operation Barbarossa (German: Unternehmen Barbarossa) was the code name for the Axis invasion of the Soviet Union, starting Sunday, 22 June 1941, during World War 2.

The operation stemmed from Nazi Germany's ideological aims to conquer the western Soviet Union so that it could be repopulated by Germans, to use Slavs as a slave-labour force for the Axis war-effort, and to seize the oil reserves of the Caucasus and the agricultural resources of Soviet territories.

In the two years leading up to the invasion, Germany and the Soviet Union signed political and economic pacts for strategic purposes (for instance the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact in 1939). Nevertheless, the German High Command began planning an invasion of the Soviet Union in July 1940. Over the course of the operation, about four million Axis personnel, the largest invasion force in the history of warfare, invaded the western Soviet Union along a 2,900-kilometer (1,800 mi) front.

While the Germans made huge advances in 1941 occupying some of the most important economic areas of the Soviet Union, at Stalin's direction the Red Army directed sizable resources to prevent the Germans from achieving one of their key strategic goals, the capture of Leningrad. They held the city at the cost of more than a million Soviet soldiers in the region and more than a million civilians.

While the Germans pressed forward, Stalin was confident of an eventual Allied victory over Germany. In November 1941, Stalin rallied his generals in a speech given underground in Moscow, telling them that the German blitzkrieg would fail because of weaknesses in the German rear in Western Europe and the underestimation of the strength of the Red Army, and that the German war effort would crumble against the Anglo-American-Soviet war engine.

Correctly calculating that Hitler would direct efforts to capture Moscow, Stalin concentrated his forces to defend the city, including numerous divisions transferred from Soviet eastern sectors after he determined that Japan would not attempt an attack in those areas. By December, Hitler's troops had advanced to within 25 kilometers (16 mi) of the Kremlin in Moscow. On 5 December, the Soviets launched a counteroffensive, pushing German troops back circa 80 kilometers (50 mi) from Moscow in what was the first major defeat of the Wehrmacht in the war.

The Red Army repelled the Wehrmacht's strongest blows and forced the unprepared Germans into a war of attrition. The Wehrmacht would never again mount a simultaneous offensive along the entire strategic Soviet–Axis front. The failure of Operation Barbarossa proved a turning point in the fortunes of the Third Reich. Most importantly, the operation opened up the Eastern Front, in which more forces were committed than in any other theater of war in world history. The Eastern Front became the site of some of the largest battles and highest casualties for Soviet and Axis units alike.

Battle of Stalingrad 1942-1943 - World War II DOCUMENTARY

After a long discussion, we decided to start making documentaries on the modern wars, and the first one we are going to cover will be the battle of Stalingrad in 1942-1943 that was fought between Germany and its allies and USSR within the World War II. This battle is considered one of the most decisive in the second World War, as it worsened the situation of the Wehrmacht and allowed the Soviet Red Army to start counterattacking all over the Eastern Front. This battle is also symbolic, as it was one of the rare battles where the egos of two rulers - Hitler and Stalin clashed.
We are planning to release more documentaries covering the modern conflicts, so stay tuned.
