Operation Barbarossa

Operation Barbarossa was the German code name for the invasion of the Soviet Union that occurred along a front of approximately 1,000 miles on June 22, 1941. Although initially successful with German forces occupying thousands of miles of Soviet territory and inflicting devastating losses on the Red Army, the invasion of the Soviet Union hastened the defeat of Nazi Germany, and resurgent Soviet troops conquered Berlin in 1945.
