    What, I believe decided the EUROPEAN WAR was Operation Barbarossa

    Everything else following that strategic mistaken is detail.

    Germany's decision to invade Russia was as stategically misguided as Japan's decision to attack Pearl Harbor, and for very much the same reason.

    When you attack a very superior force with a surprise attack, you'd best kill them outright.

    Whatever you do...don't shoot Mongo!​

    Agree there. IF Hitler had honored his treaty with Russia until the battle for Western Europe was over, he may have won the war. Luckily for the world he was a ego maniacal tyrant and not a military genius.

    As for Japan, we just got lucky there, had our aircraft carriers been in port at the time, we would have been out of the Pacific war before it even began.
