The 6 Most Gigantic Everything in the History of War | Cracked.com
#6 is insane
More insane was the battle of Kursk.
Simply amazing stuff..
Kursk was a monster bloodbath that decided the war
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!
It only pisses him off
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.
