10h 4min, jun 1, 1941 y - Germany Attacks the USSR
Possibly Germany's fatal mistake, Germany attacks the USSR in 1941, breaking their non-aggression pact. The German offensive pushes deep into the USSR, using the same blitzkrieg tactics that conquered Poland and France. By January 1943, the invasion had ground to a halt, the fierce northern winter crippling the German army. After the battle of Stalingrad, the Soviet army began pushing back.
