Ivan's War: The Red Army at War 1939-45 Part One

They died in their millions, shattered by German shells and tanks, freezing behind the wire of prison camps, driven forward in suicidal charges by the secret police. Yet in all the books about the Second World War on the eastern front, there is very little about how the Russian soldier lived, dreamed and died.

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.

BATTLE OF LENINGRAD Trailer (2019)

Official Battle of Leningrad Movie Trailer 2019 | Subscribe ➤ | Mariya Melnikova Movie Trailer | Release: 3 Dec 2019 on Digital, Blu-Ray & DVD | More
September 1941. On the Eastern Front of World War II, Kostya and his fellow Russian cadets are tasked with evacuating thousands of civilians out of war-torn Leningrad, to safety aboard Barge 752. While Kostya’s commander initially worries that the barge may be too outdated to safely sail across Lake Ladoga, the evacuation is completed, even allowing Kostya time to smuggle his fiancé, Nastya, aboard the barge to join him on the journey. But catastrophe quickly finds them… An unrelenting storm strikes that evening, and Barge 752 begins to breakdown and leak, threatening to sink. Kostya, Nastya, and the rest of the ship occupants are hopeful for a rescue the next morning, but instead find themselves in even great danger when the first responders are not rescue planes…but enemy aircraft, ready for attack.

Battle of Leningrad (2019) is the new drama starring Mariya Melnikova, Andrey Mironov-Udalov and Gela Meskhi.

Why No German Reinforcements at Stalingrad?

Sixth Army was starved of reinforcements at Stalingrad, but it wasn't because the Germans had run out of manpower. No, they had the replacements - they just didn't send them to 6th Army! But why is this the case? Let's explore this.

Red Road From Stalingrad: Recollections of a Soviet Infantryman Part One

This is his extraordinary story. His vivid inside view of a ruthless war on the Eastern Front gives a rare insight into the reality of the fighting and into the tactics and mentality of the Red Army's soldiers. In his own words, and with remarkable clarity of recall, he describes what combat was like on the ground, face to face with a skilled, deadly, and increasingly desperate enemy.

Lend Lease to the Soviet Union, the Soviet and German Economies, and more... TIK Q&A 3

American Lend Lease has often been seen as vital to the Soviet Union for winning WW2. But is this really the case? This is related to the fragility of the Soviet War economy, especially in coal mining, which is explored in the video as well. In addition, numerous questions were asked by my Patreons related to the Eastern Front of World War II, including German oil problems, the Stalingrad and Caucasus campaigns, Kursk, and other battles elsewhere like the Battle of Sicily.

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.

6th Army's Rations at Stalingrad

How bad were Sixth Army's rations at Stalingrad? The answer is - very bad. They were existing on half-rations right from the beginning of the siege, and it only got worse from there.

At Leningrad's Gates: The Memoirs of a Soldier with Army Group North Part Two

William Lubbeck, age nineteen, was drafted into the Wehrmacht in August 1939. As a member of the 58th Infantry Division, he received his baptism of fire during the 1940 invasion of France. The following spring, his division served on the left flank of Army Group North in Operation Barbarossa. After grueling marches amid countless Russian bodies, burnt-out vehicles, and a great number of cheering Baltic civilians, Lubbeck’s unit entered the outskirts of Leningrad, making the deepest penetration of any German formation.

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?

The Rations and Fate of the Civilians at the Siege of Leningrad

The city of Leningrad was under siege for 872 days. As a result, the rations were cut to starvation-levels. Even so, the food almost ran out! Confitions were terrible for the civilians, who suffered horribly. Technically, the siege of Leningrad was a Soviet victory. However, for the civilians of city of Leningrad, victory came at a huge price, as we will discuss in this video.
