Invasion of Soviet Union/Barbarosso
By: Maham, Ashlesha, Saloni, & Alina
It began on the 22nd June, 1941, and ended on 7th January, 1947.
The Invasion of the Soviet union happened "in the wake of Germany's stunning success against the western allies in France". Germany thought the Soviet armed forces weren't strong enough and thought that they were weak. According to Hitler "We have only to kick the door and the whole rotten structure will come crashing down." Joseph Stalin however, was not prepared for the invasion. Stalin didn't want to believe that an invasion against the Soviet Union was being planned therefore the soviet union was unprepared.
