Summary

Hitler's disastrous invasion of the Soviet Union, during which the previously undefeated German forces met their match as they battled the seemingly endless resources of Stalin's war machine. By the end of 1943, the Red Army's offensives successfully removed the Germans from Russia's historic homeland, and continued by pressing west into Poland.
