Germany invaded the USSR after it conquered Poland.
Gettysburg. And the bloodiest one-day battle was Antietam.
Kursk in July 1943 was the last throw of the German dice in the east, the final aggressive movement of the panzer forces. 2 long years later.....but the distances are vast & t…he forces involved are immense.

The Nazi-USSR Non-Aggression Pact was signed on 23 August 1939.
The affect it had on WW2 was that it sealed the fate of the Nazis. Had Hitler held his uneasy peace with the USSR then it is difficult to project the course of History. …The war in the east was horrendous, the casualty list long, the imprisoned on each side devastated by the predation of slave labour camps. But the thought of the co-existance of Hitler & Stalin, although unlikely to remain allies, is a chilling one
They lost the war. the Russians won the war not the US
Because they had opposing viewpoints. Like most countries who go to war.
Probably not, the soviet union was just as heavily militaristic as Germany and if given enough time to strenghten its weakened militairy leadership after the purges and move i…ts crack troops from the border with Japan they would have just gobbled up more territory and eventually attack Germany. However if Germany didn't attack Germany all the masses of men and materials could have been used to defeat Great Britain which had been already weakened by the battle of Britain and the blitz, all the masses of men which would have been used on the eastern front would simply overrun the British and force a surrender which would have allowed the Germans access through the British empire and convince nations such as Spain and turkey to join the axis, all these extra men and materials could be used in a much better invasion of the ussr and put the Germans in a very good position to aid Japan in their war against the US, the combined forces of Germany, Japan, Italy, France, Britain and their colonies would have simply overrun the Americans which would be stretched to the limit in the pacific and the Atlantic. Germany dispised the soviet union and would have attacked sooner or later but if they waited a few more years and focused more on forcing a British surrender or attacking British colonies and enticing more countries to join their cause a German victory would have been far more likely. the USSR was the main reason Germany lost. they were for fault of Hitlers suicide and conquering of Berlin. I think its funny how so many people support Americans in the war when if the soviets had not entered the remaining men in Germany's army would be more than tripled. plus Japan would be saved by Germany, and then the Axis could launch an invasion during the summer, which might defeat Stalin.
The greatest battles of WWII in Europe/Asia were fought in the Soviet Union. The German Army was so badly beaten by the Soviets that only a token force of the German Army rema…ined to face the Normandy Invasion of 1944.
Germany needed to capture Stalingrad (now renamed Volgograd) but failed. You see Stalingrad was the the city sanding between them and Moscow. If the they captured the city the…y would have a road leading to Moscow! (Oh snap!) But it was a epic fail. Then the Russians regrouped and push back the Germans. The Germans and Russians was not all ways enemies. When the were allies Russia trusted the Germans but a surprise invasion was under go. Russians out numbered the Germans 10 to 1 but if the Germans were to invade Russia and capture their capital city they would surrender. Fail. But they almost succeeded. Of course the Russian army was scattered through out the Mother land but when the attack failed most of the Russian army were now sent to the front lines. The Russians were in Berlin by spring.
No. The Soviet Union did enter World War 2 but on the other side. Germany invaded and then forced the Soviet Union into the war
battle of midway
Because the Soviets simultaneously invaded Poland from the east, dividing the country between them. At the time, the USSR also coveted eastern European territory. Rememberin…g their disastrous defeats in Austria by the Germans in World War I, they sought to negotiate with Nazi Germany and divide the intervening territories among themselves. The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, signed just a week before the invasion of Poland, was a non-aggression pact that ironically supplied Germany with all of the materials they needed to eventually attack the Soviets in 1942.
The Eastern block America controlled the West. Or you can simply watch it on youtube lol
Russia defeated the German Army at the Battle of Stalingrad (February 2, 1943) .
