War on the Eastern Front: Leningrad (Soviet Documentary) | Timeline

Eastern Front of WWII animated: 1941

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?

Eastern Front of WWII animated: 1942

The initial Axis invasion of the Soviet Union had ended with their forces being overextended and the Red Army counterattacked them during the winter. The fighting eventually became a stalemate. During the summer of 1942 both sides planned to undertake a major offensive in order to inflict a decisive defeat on their opponent. The question was - who would be able to gain the initiative first.

Eastern Front of WWII animated: 1943/44

As 1942 ended, it became clear that Germany would not be able to defeat the Red Army. The question was, now that the resources of the Soviet Union had been greatly reduced and the Germans had the defensive advantage, did the Red Army have the strength to push the Germans back and avoid a stalemate?

Why doesn't this series use the Nazi swastika symbol? James explains:
____________
In June 1941, Nazi Germany launched an attack upon the Soviet Union. The German Reich had been building up forces along the Eastern Front for a long time, but the sudden aggression caught Soviet forces unprepared. Many troops were captured and the Germans quickly conquered territory from the Soviet states. But the Soviets reorganized, improved their communication structure, and pulled together a defense at Smolensk. Although they lost again, they critically slowed the German advance and halted their race towards Moscow. Instead, the Germans tried to lay siege at Leningrad, only to be struck themselves by insufficient supply lines and a brutal winter that claimed the lives of many soldiers. With that, the Wehrmacht withdrew and redirected its efforts towards Stalingrad. Josef Stalin refused to let them take any land further than the Volga in Russia, and mounted a stiff defense. Even when the Luftwaffe, the German air force, reduced the city to rubble, Soviet soldiers continued to wage war from the debris. Meanwhile, the Germans were so focused on their offensive that they let their defensive lines collapse, and in October 1941 the Soviets managed to surround and pin down the German 6th Army. Their commander refused surrender terms because he didn't want to displease Adolf Hitler, but the 6th Army's resistance inevitably collapsed in February 1942.

Operation Typhoon and the 1941 Battle for Moscow - John Suprin

John Suprin visited the Dole Institute of Politics to discuss the Battle of Moscow and the German strategic offensive, Operation Typhoon.

The Battle for Moscow, which took place between October 1941 and January 1942 during World War II, involved Germany's attempts to push into the Russian city of Moscow. The German offensive strategy, named Operation Typhoon, planned to weaken Moscow's defenses by using tanks to sever key Russian railway systems while the main force moved directly on the city. The Russian army was able to successfully defend Moscow, and enacted a counter-offensive, which pushed the German Army back.

Did the Russian Winter beat the Germans? And more... TIK Q&A 2

Many people believe that the Russian Winter stopped the Germans outside Moscow. Historians no longer think this is the case. In this video, I discuss many topics, including German logistics, Russian or Soviet sources, the Operation Barbarossa Plan, whether it was a viable strategy for the Germans to retreat to the 1941 pre-Barbarossa borders, and more! All these questions came from my Patreons who pledge $5 or more.

This video is discussing events or concepts that are academic, educational and historical in nature. This video is for informational purposes and was created so we may better understand the past and learn from the mistakes others have made.

History isn’t as boring as some people think, and my goal is to get people talking about it. I also want to dispel the myths and distortions that ruin our perception of the past by asking a simple question - “But is this really the case?”. I have a 2:1 Degree in History and a passion for early 20th Century conflicts (mainly WW2). I’m therefore approaching this like I would an academic essay. Lots of sources, quotes, references and so on. Only the truth will do.

Victor Davis Hanson: World War Two-Then and Now (May 2, 2018)

Presented at CU Boulder on May 2, 2018

The Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy presents:

Victor Davis Hanson: World War Two-Then and Now
World War II was the most lethal conflict in human history. Never before had a war been fought on so many diverse landscapes and in so many different ways, from rocket attacks in London to jungle fighting in Burma to armor strikes in Libya.
Drawing on 3,000 years of military history, Victor Davis Hanson argues that despite its novel industrial barbarity, neither the war's origins nor its geography were unusual. Nor was its ultimate outcome surprising. The Axis powers were well prepared to win limited border conflicts, but once they blundered into global war, they had no hope of victory.

Why Franco & Spain stayed out of WW2?

Today we talk about Franco and Spain during the WW2 era, specifically looking into the reasons why Spain stayed out of WW2, their active neutrality (supporting the Axis side), and talking about the Blue Division. This is in response to my Patron, Dan Reed, who asked this question - Can you talk about the Spanish Blue division? The Spanish were quite good at straddling the fence between England and Germany.

WW2 in Estonia animated: 1941

For three and a half months in 1941 Estonia became a battleground between Germany and the Soviet Union. Being on the left flank of the German drive on Leningrad the country became split between the German forces and the Red Army in mid July 1941. After that both sides attempted to capitalize on the limited maneuvering room to encircle and destroy each others forces as Germany attempted to capture the Soviet naval bases in Estonia while Red Army did everything to retain them.

Data from the The National Archives of Estonia was used to create the map.
This video is based on assets originally created for the Estonian War Museum.

Operation Barbarossa was the name for the Axis invasion of the Soviet Union, which started on Sunday, 22 June 1941, during World War II. The operation stemmed from Nazi Germany's ideological aims to conquer the western Soviet Union

In the two years leading up to the invasion, Germany and the Soviet Union signed political and economic pacts for strategic purposes.
over four million personnel of the Axis powers – the largest invasion force in the history of warfare invaded the western Soviet Union along a 3000 kilometer front. In addition to troops, the Wehrmacht deployed some 600,000 motor vehicles, and between 600,000 and 700,000 horses for non-combat operations. The offensive marked an escalation of World War II, both geographically and in the formation of the Allied coalition.

The Eastern Front - Rainer Buschmann PhD

The USSR in the Cold War Years - Professor Polly Jones

After Stalins death in 1953, successive leaders tried to find ways to revitalise the Soviet regime and rethink its promises to the Soviet people. Life within a system no longer based on terror and intense industrial transformation (yet still striving to reach communism) offered citizens strange alternatives.

The commemoration of Bolshevism hampered attempts to enthuse the population about the Soviet future. Khrushchev, Brezhnev and Gorbachev tried to re-infuse the spirit of revolution as well as to stave off disillusionment with Soviet ideology, demonstrating the complex legacy of the Russian Revolution.

The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:

Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 2,000 lectures free to access or download from the website.
