    • @Black Knight thank you, I try to point out that he is merely reciting very basic ,very limited high school grade knowledge without any real consideration for over all military tactics as well as the influence of war time economy, the latter of which is what played the determiming factor in germany failure , not russian ineffectiveness as the russian were more then effective at making the german waste the little war supplies they had left on a desperate operation that most commander didnt want to under take

  • Promoted video, collaboration with another channel and then TRvision ads. No wonder why they took down some of your videos. If you are making publicity for a company or whatever you are not supposed to put ads because on theory the company who you are promoting is paying you, not to mention that you made a collaboration with another youtuber. I love your videos they are super well done and entertaining but of the 17min the video lasts 5 are ads or a topic different of what the video is about

  • Lets be real. Stalin kind of did a big brain thing because he knew how to point out the other dictators, and thats why he was able to push Germany back. Stalin was basically kicking his bad teammates out of the game, and putting good ones back in. Germany was basically doing all the work in europe, but Japan was so far away and couldnt flank russia from the back due to being held back by britain, china, etc. And Italy didnt even get its military stuff straight. It could only take african colonies whom were defenseless, like Ethiopia. Hitler was basically ranting about Stalin clearing out untrusted generals, As the same would of happened to Stalin when being invaded by Germany if he kept his untrustful generals.

  • This video wrong. He is not telling the complete story. The ussr tanks weren't ass well prepared becausebfucking hitler told stalin that he is not going to attack ussr but then in the late night they suddenly attacked the defenseless ussr because they thought were safe, thats why they nearly got to Moskau but didn't quite made it. Children and women needed to make weapons because ussr didn't have enough weapons because they weren't prepared at all.

    • @The Guy Under Your Bed Stalin eventually gave orders to defend the USSR even if it meant sacrificing every last Russian soldier... because he's Georgian! Why he's still held in high regard by some is an enigma. Russians died for Russia, such a great country.

    • Soviet spies in Japan and British intelligence already warned Stalin from as far back as 1940 that a German invasion is possible and even imminent. Even a day before the invasion, Alfred Liskow, a German deserter, tried to warn that a German invasion was about to happen, yet his warning fell to deaf ears. Stalin already got as many warnings as he could get, yet he was too oblivious about it and still naively believed that war with Germany would not happen. You can thank Stalin for that.

  • The main reason why the Soviets ultimately failed not just in 1941 but in total was because they were morally and spiritually corrupt. And conversely the reason why America was hugely successful was ultimately based on their Christian belief and philosophy. This according to the world famous Swiss sociologist Max Webber. Russia today after the fall of the Soviet Union has once again embraced Christianity and is doing great. American under the influence of the Democrats are displaying more and more Atheist Communist influences which will surely cause the end of America. Guaranteed.

  • I don't blame Stalin when he told his general not to retaliate. That's how diplomacy works today. Nobody wants to look like an aggressor, but the victim. Rather take 1 step back and go forward 2 steps. In the end, USSR too over and created many satellite countries.

    • Not retaliate? When the Wehrmacht were clearly invading? So they should just let the Wehrmacht to grab as much land as they wanted? Soviet retaliation is pretty fucking justified. Nazi Germany already showed itself to the world as an aggressor, not to mention Stalin already received multiple warnings by that time from Soviet spies and British intelligence that a German invasion is imminent, from as far as 1940! Stalin was just too oblivious about the cards in play and he really believed that he could prevent war with Germany.
