You can see on the east front that germans didn't like the winter while the russians did :)

It's very hard to really understand how large nazi-Germany become during those years. And all the battles around the world at the same time. I hope we never ever will see wars like that on our planet in the future.

Finland had it's own war with Russia during the winter 39-40, impressive how they managed to defend themself. If you have the time, watch some of the movies about the Finnish winter war.

#2 I'd like to hope that we never ever see wars like that too. Unfortunately the stage is being set for the next world war even at this very moment.

Both german and russian regimes did a lot of harm to my country. 5:51 you can see Courland pocket forming, where soldiers (germans+latvians) fought reds and were unbeaten till the end of the war. Thanks to them a lot of people could escape the russian occupation.

Although Sweden remained neutral, there were almost 10 000 Swedish volunteers fighting on the Finnish front. <3

If you wonder how Finland managed to defend herself against a superior enemy, one must know that USSR didn't want to use local troops because they feared the men would not fight. Just imagine the poor unexperienced guys from more or less temperate climates, far far away, entering the freezing cold (-30C) forests, following leaders that were accustomed to fighting on open ground.

#6 + Stalin killed a lot of armies leading officers and instructors. They had KV tanks sent to the Finnish front and the crue had like 1-2h learning experiance. Same goes to the other troops.

This video is a lie. Azores Portugal was given to the Allies in 1943. Putting Portugal with the Allies prior to 1945, even they were working with the Germans and the U.S. from day one. I have proof through video.

This vid shows clearly that A.H. attempted to *sit wider than his arse could reach* and lost - as result many nations were left defenceless for decades from the red terror. Also the hope of having good healthy Europe for europeans died on 15. May 1945. Nowadays A. Merkel is forced to admit: Multi kulti ist tot. Sad.

It is a shame that Stalin was not interested in freeing German occupied European countries, but instead planned on subjugating and controlling many of them under his murderous rule behind his iron curtain.
