I don't understand the poor rating on this video. I think it showed you a classic war and how bad it was handled. It was so bad that even Hitler did the same mistake of attacking Russia during winter. Always bring supplies and warm clothing if you're going to invade Russia!

Every time I see this guy, his bulging eyes, his sickly mouth and teeth, and listen to his irritating drawl, I just want to throw up.

That's a nice visual aid, and also a reminder that Russia, historically, is the anvil that wore our many hammers, the would be world dictators, even unto this very day. I hope she keeps strong for a lot longer to thwart any present and future attempts at world domination by any one world power.

#1, I don't consider Hitler's attack on Russia as a mistake, it may have shortened the war and saved lots of people lots of misery!

#4 I don't get what you mean. Do you mean this mistake weakened the German army and shortened the war, or something different?
