Notes

On June 22, 1941, the German army began a three—pronged invasion of Russia. They reached the gates of Leningrad and Moscow, but, as with Napoleon before him, superior forces, and the might of the Russian winter of 1941-1942 prevailed. Germany was now fighting of two fronts, a war that it could not win.
