Operation Barbarossa

22nd June 1941

Over 4.5 million troops of the Axis powers invaded the USSR along an 1,800 mile front. The planning for operation Barbarossa took several years prior to June 1941; the clandestine preparations and the military operation itself lasted almost a year, from the Spring of 1941, through the Winter of 1941.
