Adolf Hitler’s FULL excerpt on Operation Barbarossa. October 3rd 1941.
Historians have debated whether Stalin was planning an invasion of German territory in the summer of 1941. In the 1980s when Viktor Suvorov published a journal article and later the book Icebreaker in which he stated that Stalin had seen the outbreak of war in western Europe as an opportunity to spread communist revolutions throughout the continent, and that the Soviet military was being deployed for an imminent attack at the time of the German invasion. This view had also been advanced by former German generals following the war. Suvorov’s thesis was fully or partially accepted by some historians, including Valeri Danilov, Joachim Hoffmann, Mikhail Meltyukhov and Vladimir Nevezhin.
The fiercest battles of World War Two took place along the Eastern Front. The Front reached back to Germany through the Soviet Union, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, the Balkans, Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, and the Baltic States. Throughout these sombre landscapes, where Europe’s best gave their lives to free Europe from the scourge of the Bolshevik-London-Washington DC alliance.
Some Background Information:
With the world preoccupied by the war in Europe:
Stalin violated the Soviet-Polish Non-Aggression Pact by invading Poland in 1939
Stalin violated the Soviet-Finnish Non-Aggression Pact by invading Finland in 1939
Stalin violated a provision of the Soviet-German Non-Aggression Pact (Ribbentrop-Molotov) by invading Lithuania in 1940
Stalin grabbed a piece of eastern Romania in 1940
Hitler believed that Stalin, in secret collaboration with the British, was planning to totally break the Soviet-German Non Aggression Pact by launching a massive surprise attack upon anti-Communist Germany. The Allies were willing to let the Communists plunder Eastern Europe rather than Germany show the world how to break free from the International banker[s]. As history would have it, Hitler’s fear of Stalin’s collaboration with the British and to overrun Europe was irrefutable.
The attack on the Soviet Union was a counter attack as Hitler had no other choice, Stalin was about to strike western Europe. Even if Germany had an army 5 times larger than that of the USSR, Germany was, due to its much smaller size than the USSR, in a strategic disadvantage, as the Red Army could have reached Berlin in less than a week through a surprise attack. Germany is smaller in size, hence less ground to defend, less ground to use as strategic advantage i.e. no where to retreat unlike the soviets who could have retreated within the vast landscapes of the USSR and reorganize to counterattack. Germany didn’t have strategic territory that the USSR had.Germany had a bigger industrial base than the USSR. Hitler knew that Germany must strike first and defeat the USSR by 1942. Therefore he did not order the German economy to be totally mobilized for war. It was a strategic mistake that cost, among other reasons, the war.
Germany was the world’s second largest industrial power (after the USSR). The Soviet Union had the third largest industrial base (about 70% of Germany’s size) while the British Empire had the fourth largest economy. Despite Germany being more powerful in terms of production capacity (about the same power as France and the Soviet Union combined) than the USSR during the first years of the war Germany’s war production was smaller than that of the USSR, since unlike the Soviets and the allies Germany’s war economy was not set to “total war” mode until 1943 i.e. too late. In 1944 Germany’s war production, despite allied bombings, was larger than that of the USSR and Britain and second only the the United States.
In the end … Poland, for whose liberty the West had supposedly gone to war, ended up with none at all. On the contrary, she was handed over to Stalin, along with the whole of Eastern Europe, including a part of Germany. Even so, there are some people in the West who continue to believe that the West won the Second World War. Stalin became the absolute ruler of a vast empire hostile to the West, which had been created with the help of the West. For all that, Stalin was able to preserve his reputation as naive and trusting, while Hitler went down in history as the ultimate aggressor. A multitude of books have been published in the West based on the idea that Stalin was not ready for war while Hitler was which is ignorant to say the least.
The great sacrifice of Germany and the 500,000 foreign SS Waffen volunteers from Europe and abroad prevented the Communists from taking ALL of Europe, including the Russians who fought to retake their Motherland from the Marxist butchers
