According to Taylor and Proektor , the Soviet armed forces in the western districts were outnumbered, with 2.
The total Axis strength is also exaggerated; 3. A further , troops provided by Germany's allies also participated, but mostly after the initial offensive.
Moreover, on mobilization , as the war went on, the Red Army gained steadily in strength. While the strength of both sides varied, in general the belligerents fought with a slight Axis numerical superiority in manpower at the front.
In some key weapons-systems, however, the Soviets had a considerable numerical advantage. In tanks, for example, the Red Army dominated overwhelmingly in numbers.
They possessed 23,,  of which about 12, were in the five Western Military Districts three of which directly faced the German invasion front.
Adolf Hitler later said "If I had known about the Russian tank's strength in I would not have attacked".
Also, from , the Soviets had partly dispersed their tanks to infantry divisions for infantry support, but after their experiences in the Winter War and their observation of the German campaign against France, they had begun to emulate the Germans and organize most of their armored assets into large armored divisions and corps.
This reorganization was only partially implemented at the dawn of Barbarossa,  as not enough tanks were available to bring the mechanized corps up to organic strength.
The German Wehrmacht had about 5, tanks overall, of which 3, were committed to the invasion. This yields a balance of immediately available tanks of about in the Red Army's favor.
However, the most advanced Soviet tank models, the T and KV-1 , were not available in large numbers early in the war, and only accounted for 7.
The Soviet numerical advantage in heavy equipment was also more than offset by the greatly superior training and readiness of German forces.
The Soviet officer corps and high command had been massacred in Stalin's Great Purge — Out of 90 generals arrested, only six survived the purges, as did only 36 out of divisional commanders, and just seven out of 57 army corps commanders.
In total, some 30, Red Army personnel were executed,  while more were deported to Siberia and replaced with officers deemed more "politically reliable".
Three out of the five pre-war marshals and about two-thirds of the corps and division commanders were shot.
This often left younger, less experienced officers in their places. For example, in , 75 percent of Red Army officers had held their posts for less than one year.
The average Soviet corps commander was 12 years younger than the average German division commander.
These officers tended to be very reluctant to take the initiative and often lacked the training necessary for their jobs.
The number of aircraft was also heavily in the Soviets' favor. However, Soviet aircraft were largely obsolete, and Soviet artillery lacked modern fire-control techniques.
A shortage of modern aircraft severely hampered the Soviet war effort in the first phase of the Eastern-front war. The Soviet fighter force was equipped with large numbers of obsolete aircraft, such as the Polikarpov I biplane and the Polikarpov I Few aircraft had radios and those that were available were unencrypted and did not work reliably.
The standard of flight training had been accelerated in preparation for a German attack that was expected to come in or later. However Soviet pilot training was extremely poor.
Order No of the People's Commissar of Defense, dated 22 December , ordered flight training to be accelerated and shortened.
Incredibly, while the Soviets had MiG-3s and 37 MiG-1s combat-ready on 22 June , only four pilots had been trained to handle these machines.
The Red Army was dispersed and unprepared, and units were often separated and without transportation to concentrate prior to combat.
Although it had numerous, well-designed artillery pieces, some of the guns had no ammunition. Artillery units often lacked transportation to move their guns.
Tank units were rarely well equipped, and also lacked training and logistical support. Maintenance standards were very poor. Units were sent into combat with no arrangements for refueling, ammunition resupply, or personnel replacement.
Often, after a single engagement, units were destroyed or rendered ineffective. The army was in the midst of reorganizing their armor units into large tank corps, adding to the disorganization.
As a result, although on paper the Red Army in seemed at least the equal of the German army, the reality in the field was far different; incompetent officers, as well as partial lack of equipment, insufficient motorized logistical support, and poor training placed the Red Army at a severe disadvantage.
In August British intelligence had received hints of German plans to attack the Soviets only a week after Hitler informally approved the plans for Barbarossa.
Although acknowledging the possibility of an attack in general and making significant preparations, he decided not to run the risk of provoking Hitler.
He also suspected the British of trying to spread false rumours in order to trigger a war between Germany and the USSR.
However, these forces were very vulnerable due to changes in the tactical doctrine of the Red Army. In , it had adopted, on the instigation of General Dmitry Pavlov , a standard linear-defense tactic in line with other nations.
Infantry divisions , reinforced by an organic tank component, would dig in to form heavily fortified zones.
Then came the shock of the Fall of France. The Wehrmacht defeated the French Army in a mere six weeks. Soviet analysis of events, based on incomplete information, concluded that French military collapsed due to a reliance on linear defence and a lack of armored reserves.
The Soviets decided not to repeat these mistakes. Instead of digging-in for linear defense, the infantry divisions would henceforth concentrate in large formations.
The Soviet left wing, in Ukraine, was to be enormously reinforced to be able to execute a strategic envelopment: after destroying German Army Group South, it would swing north through Poland in the back of Army Groups Center and North.
With the complete annihilation of the encircled German Army thus made inevitable, a Red Army offensive into the rest of Europe would follow.
General Georgy Zhukov in Immediately after the German invasion of the USSR, Adolf Hitler put forward a thesis that the Red Army made extensive preparations for an offensive war in Europe, thus justifying the German invasion as a pre-emptive strike.
This thesis was reiterated in the s  based on the analysis of circumstantial evidence. This proposed operation aimed to cut Germany off from its allies, especially from Romania and its oilfields that Germany needed to conduct the war.
According to Viktor Suvorov , Stalin planned to use Germany as a proxy the "icebreaker" against the West. Stalin aimed to fuel Hitler's aggressive plans against Europe, and only after the countries had fought each other—and exhausted themselves to some extent—would the USSR make their move.
For this reason Stalin provided significant material and political support to Adolf Hitler, while at the same time preparing the Red Army to "liberate" the whole of Europe from Nazi occupation.
Suvorov saw Barbarossa as a German pre-emptive strike that capitalized on the Soviet troop concentrations immediately on the borders.
Some others who support the idea that Stalin prepared to attack, like Mikhail Meltyukhov , reject this part of Suvorov's theory, arguing that both sides prepared for an attack on their own, not in response to the other side's preparations.
Although this thesis has drawn the attention of the general public in some countries Germany, Russia and Israel , and has been supported by some historians examples include Vladimir Nevezhin , Boris Sokolov , Valeri Danilov , Joachim Hoffmann , and Mark Solonin , the idea that Stalin was preparing an attack in has not been accepted by many western historians.
From Occupied Norway a smaller group of forces consisted of:. From Finland engaged in its Continuation War 16 divisions :.
More Fronts would be formed within the overall responsibility of the three Strategic Directions commands which corresponded approximately to a German Army Wehrmacht Heer Army Group Heeresgruppen in terms of geographic area of operations.
The forces of the North-Western Direction were: . Beside the Armies in the Fronts, there were a further six armies in the Western region of the USSR: the 16th , 19th , 20th , 21st , 22nd and the 24th Armies that formed, together with independent units, the Stavka Reserve Group of Armies , later renamed the Reserve Front — nominally under Stalin's direct command.
It is hard to pinpoint the opposing sides' strength in this initial phase, as most German figures include reserves allocated to the East but not yet committed, as well as several other comparability issues between the German and USSR's figures.
Roughly three million Wehrmacht troops went into action on 22 June, and they faced slightly fewer Soviet troops in the border Military Districts.
The contribution of the German allies would generally not make itself felt until later. The surprise was complete: though the Stavka , alarmed by reports that Wehrmacht units were approaching the border, had, at , ordered that the border troops be warned that war was imminent, only a small number of units were alerted in time.
At around noon 22 June , the news of the invasion was broadcast to the population by Molotov, as follows: .
The Red Army and the whole nation will wage a victorious Patriotic War for our beloved country, for honour, for liberty Our cause is just.
The enemy will be beaten. Victory will be ours. By calling upon the population's devotion to their nation rather than the Party, Molotov struck a patriotic chord while allowing a stunned people to absorb the shattering news.
The invasion did not come as a surprise to Stalin but he was completely astounded. In Germany, on the morning of 22 June, Joseph Goebbels announced the invasion to the waking nation in a radio broadcast: .
At this moment a march is taking place that, for its extent, compares with the greatest the world has ever seen. I have decided today to place the fate and future of the Reich and our people in the hands of our soldiers.
May God aid us, especially in this fight. Later the same morning, Hitler proclaimed to colleagues, "before three months have passed, we shall witness a collapse of Russia, the like of which has never been seen in history".
Aside from the roughly 3. Luftwaffe reconnaissance units worked frantically to plot troop concentration, supply dumps, and airfields, and mark them for destruction.
The Luftwaffe ' s task was to neutralize the Soviet Air Force. This was not achieved in the first days of operations, despite the Soviets having concentrated aircraft in huge groups on the permanent airfields rather than dispersing them on field landing strips, making them ideal targets.
The Luftwaffe claimed to have destroyed 1, aircraft on the first day of operations. Picking through the wreckages of Soviet airfields, the Luftwaffe ' s figures proved conservative, as over 2, destroyed Soviet aircraft were found.
The Germans claimed to have destroyed only 3, Soviet aircraft in the first three days. In fact Soviet losses were far higher; according to Russian historian Viktor Kulikov, some 3, Soviet aircraft had been lost.
Opposite Army Group North were two Soviet armies. The 4th Panzer Group's objective was to cross the Neman and Daugava Rivers which were the two largest obstacles in the advance to Leningrad.
Near Raseiniai, the armoured units were counterattacked by tanks of the 3rd and 12th Soviet Mechanized Corps.
It took four days for the Germans to encircle and destroy the Soviet armour who lacked fuel, ammunition and coordination.
By the end of the first week the Soviet Mechanized Corps had lost 90 percent of its strength. The Germans were now within striking distance of Leningrad.
However, due to their deteriorated supply situation, Hitler ordered the Panzer Groups to hold their position until the infantry formations caught up.
The orders to hold would last over a week, giving time for the Soviets to build up a defense around Leningrad and along the bank of the Luga River.
Further complicating the Soviet position, on 22 June, the anti-Soviet June Uprising in Lithuania began, and an independent Lithuania was proclaimed on the 23rd.
As the Germans reached further north, armed resistance against the Soviets broke out in Estonia as well. The " Battle of Estonia " culminated as the 18th Army reached the Gulf of Finland coast  which forced the Baltic Fleet to evacuate Tallinn , resulting in one of the greatest naval disasters in history.
Panzer units move through Pruzhany in western Belarus in June The goal of the two Panzer Groups' was to meet at Minsk, denying the Red Army an escape route from the salient.
The 3rd Panzer Group broke through the junction of two Soviet Fronts in the north of the salient, and crossed the River Neman while the 2nd Panzer Group crossed the Bug River river in the south.
Marshal Semyon Timoshenko ordered all Soviet forces to launch a general counter-offensive, but with supply and ammunition dumps destroyed, and the complete collapse of communication, the uncoordinated attacks failed.
In the vast pocket between Minsk and the Polish border, the remnants of thirty-two Soviet Rifle divisions, eight Tank, Motorized, Cavalry and Artillery divisions were encircled.
Hitler had believed that the Red Army would collapse if the Wehrmacht could destroy the bulk of the their forces west of the Western Dvina and Dnieper Rivers.
However after the victory at Minsk, as Army Group Center reached the two rivers, they encountered another five Soviet Armies 16th, 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd.
Three of these Soviet Armies 16th, 19th, and 20th were quickly encircled and eventually decimated in the vicinity of Smolensk , while the other two were severely weakened.
However, these successes came at a very steep cost for the Wehrmacht. Later still, by 28 August, Halder recorded that the Panzer divisions of the 2nd and 3rd Panzer Groups were operating with an average tank strength of 45 percent, with the 7th Panzer Division the lowest at a strength of only 24 percent.
Opposite Army Group South were three Soviet armies, the 5th, 6th and 26th. Soviet commanders reacted quicker and the Germans faced determined resistance from the start.
The German infantry armies struck at the junctions of these armies while the 1st Panzer Group drove its armored spearhead of tanks right through the Soviet 6th Army, aiming to take Brody.
On 26 June, five Soviet mechanized corps with over 4, tanks mounted a massive counterattack on the 1st Panzer Group. The battle was among the fiercest of the campaign and one of the largest tank battles in history, lasting over four days.
In the end the poor Soviet logistics and coordination, combined with German tactical skill and air superiority enabled the Germans to prevail, although the Soviets inflicted heavy losses on the 1st Panzer Group.
With the Soviet counteroffensives' failure, the last substantial Soviet tank forces in Western Ukraine had been decimated, and the Red Army assumed a defensive posture, focusing on strategic withdrawal under severe pressure.
The Soviet air arm, the VVS, lost 1, aircraft over Ukraine, with one tenth of its entire strength destroyed on the ground on the first day of the war.
Their tactical skill, as well as quick reaction to the invasion meant that the Soviet forces in Ukraine avoided the rapid destruction that befell other army groups in Belarus and the Baltic States.
However without any armored support, and the Luftwaffe dominating the sky, all the Red Army could do was buy time. The door to Kiev was now open.
By the end of the first week, all three German Army Groups had achieved major campaign objectives. The estimated casualties of the Red Army amount to , killed, wounded, missing or captured.
Franz Halder summarized the achievements made in the opening phase of the operation in his diary as follow: "The objective to shatter the bulk of the Russian Army this [western] side of the Dvina and Dnieper has been accomplished It is thus probably no overstatement to say that the Russian Campaign has been won in the space of two weeks.
It became apparent to everyone that the OKH had grossly underestimated the size of Soviet reserves.
Furthermore, the Wehrmacht's officer core consisted of the old German aristocracy, primarily Prussian Junkers.
These officers were schooled in the 19th century style of Clausewitzian theory. According to Clausewitz, wars were won by concentrating your armies at the enemy's focal point , their tactical Schwerpunkt.
At the tactical level, this meant that your armies would win a battle by concentrating effort at unexpected locations, then having them converge upon the enemies focal point, leading to a Kesselschlacht, a cauldron battle.
Now surrounded, the enemy would be forced to fight a Vernichtungsschlacht, a battle of annihilation where they would be destroyed.
At the strategic level, this meant that your armies after winning their decisive battles would eventually converge on the enemies overall focal point.
In the case of Operation Barbarossa, this was Moscow. Thus nearly every German commander treated Moscow as the ultimate prize. However Hitler had a more modern, and according to David Glantz [ citation needed ] , correct view of modern warfare.
Wars were not won by aristocrats drinking wine and smoking cigars over the negotiating table, dictating terms to their defeated gentleman rivals after winning some decisive engagement.
Wars were won by making resistance impossible by starving them of industrial production, and denying them the raw materials needed to fight.
In this thinking, Leningrad was of vital importance to keep the Baltic Fleet from interfering with deliveries of iron ore from Sweden.
Furthermore, Crimea must be captured to prevent air raids on Romanian oil fields. Kharkov also must be captured to deny the enemy its deposits of coal and iron, as well as its heavy industry.
Finally, Rostov-on-Don must be captured in order to deny access to the Black Sea as well as using it as eventual launching pad for an invasion of the Caucasus, rich in oil and minerals.
The 11th Army was ordered south to capture Crimea. The 6th Army was ordered to seize Kharkov and the 1st Panzer Group was ordered to seize Rostov-on-Don with the 17th Army acting as the link between the other two.
This meant that instead of the armies converging on some decisive objective, they were instead spreading themselves out leading to thinly defended sectors and dangerous gaps, areas ripe for counterattacks.
To the German officer corps, Hitler's decisions were strategic madness. On 3 July, Hitler finally gave the go-ahead for the Panzers to resume their drive east after the infantry divisions had caught up.
However, a rainstorm typical of Russian summers slowed their progress and Russian defenses stiffened.
The delays gave the Soviets time to organize a massive counterattack against Army Group Center. Its ultimate objective was Smolensk, which commanded the road to Moscow.
Facing the Germans was an old Soviet defensive line held by six armies. On 6 July, the Soviets attacked the 3rd Panzer Army with tanks.
The Germans defeated this counterattack with overwhelming air superiority. The 2nd Panzer Army crossed the River Dnieper and closed on Smolensk from the south while the 3rd Panzer Army, after defeating the Soviet counterattack, closed on Smolensk from the north.
Trapped between their pincers were three Soviet armies. On 18 July, the Panzer Groups came to within sixteen kilometres of closing the gap but the trap would not snap shut until 26 July.
When the Panzer Groups finally closed the gap, , Red Army soldiers were captured;  but liquidating the pocket took another ten days in which time , Red Army soldiers escaped to stand between the Germans and Moscow.
Four weeks into the campaign, the Germans realized they had grossly underestimated Soviet strength.
The German troops had used their initial supplies without attaining the expected strategic freedom of movement.
Operations were now slowed down to allow for resupply; the delay was to be used to adapt strategy to the new situation. Hitler had lost faith in encirclement as large numbers of Soviet soldiers had escaped the pincers.
Hitler now believed he could defeat the Soviets by economic damage, depriving them of the industrial capacity to continue the war.
That meant seizing the industrial center of Kharkov, the Donets Basin and the oil fields of the Caucasus in the south and the speedy capture of Leningrad, a major center of military production, in the north.
He also wanted to link up with the Finns to the north. Fedor von Bock and almost all the German generals involved in Operation Barbarossa , vehemently argued in favor of continuing the all-out drive toward Moscow.
Besides the psychological importance of capturing the enemy's capital, the generals pointed out that Moscow was a major center of arms production and the center of the Soviet communications and transportation system.
More importantly, intelligence reports indicated that the bulk of the Red Army was deployed near Moscow under Semyon Timoshenko for an all-out defense of the capital.
But Hitler was adamant, and issued a direct order to Heinz Guderian , bypassing his commanding officer von Bock, to send Army Group Centre's tanks to the north and south, temporarily halting the drive to Moscow.
As the Germans eliminated the pocket, the tanks turned north and crossed the Dnieper. The two Panzer armies now trapped four Soviet armies and parts of two others.
Killing of Jews at Ivangorod , Ukraine, . On 8 August, the Panzers broke through the Soviet defenses; the German 16th Army attacked to the northeast, the 18th Army and the Estonian guerilla Forest Brothers cleared the country and advanced to Lake Peipus.
The Finns had pushed southeast on both sides of Lake Ladoga, reaching the old Finnish-Soviet frontier. At this stage, Hitler lost patience and ordered that Leningrad should not be stormed but starved into submission.
Deprived of its Panzer forces, Army Group Center had remained static and was subjected to numerous Soviet counterattacks in particular the Yelnya Offensive in which the Germans suffered their first major tactical defeat since their invasion began.
Before it could begin, operations in Kiev needed to be finished. Half of Army Group Center had swung to the south in the back of the Kiev position, while Army Group South moved to the north from its Dniepr bridgehead.
The encirclement of Soviet Forces in Kiev was achieved on 16 September. A savage battle ensued in which the Soviets were hammered with tanks, artillery, and aerial bombardment.
After ten days of vicious fighting, the Germans claimed over , Soviet soldiers captured. Actual losses were , men, 3, artillery pieces and mortars from 43 Divisions of the 5th, 21st, 26th, and 37th Soviet Armies.
Soldiers pull a staff car through the heavy mud of the Russian roads, November After Kiev, the Red Army no longer outnumbered the Germans and there were no more directly available trained reserves.
To defend Moscow, Stalin could field , men in 83 divisions, but no more than 25 divisions were fully effective.
Operation Typhoon , the drive to Moscow, began on 2 October. In front of Army Group Center was a series of elaborate defense lines, the first centered on Vyazma and the second on Mozhaysk.
Three days later, the Panzers pushed on to Bryansk while 2nd Army attacked from the west. The Soviet 3rd and 13th Armies were now encircled.
To the north, the 3rd and 4th Panzer Armies attacked Vyazma , trapping the 19th, 20th, 24th and 32nd Armies. Moscow's first line of defense had been shattered.
The pocket eventually yielded , Soviet prisoners, bringing the tally since the start of the invasion to three million. The Soviets had only 90, men and tanks left for the defense of Moscow.
The Soviets had already survived beyond the few weeks that most experts expected after the Germans invaded; Walter Duranty was perhaps the only observer to predict that the USSR could survive for much longer.
Martial law was declared in Moscow. Almost from the beginning of Operation Typhoon , however, the weather had deteriorated. The supply situation rapidly deteriorated.
The pause gave the Soviets, who were in a far better supply situation, time to consolidate their positions and organize formations of newly activated reservists.
In little over a month the Soviets organized eleven new armies which included 30 divisions of Siberian troops.
The Hunger Plan was an engineered famine created by seizing Soviet food to feed the Nazi soldiers. The Hunger Plan and the military operation anticipated 20 to 30 million Soviet casualties.

These light tanks were completely outclassed, even by older Soviet models, but were used in some numbers during 'Barbarossa' to make up for the shortfall in PzKpfw III and IV production.
Most were gone by Up to this point all seemed to be going well, the only major problem being the time needed for the infantry to catch up with the panzers and mop up pockets of Russian defence.
But Soviet resistance was now stiffening, despite catastrophic losses. A German salient around Yelnya, south-east of Smolensk, was recaptured in a costly but successful counterattack.
Meanwhile, Army Group Centre's supply situation was becoming critical. The German High Command protested vigorously. The panzers were only miles from Moscow.
But Hitler regarded the resource-rich Ukraine as more important. In August, Guderian vigorously protested Hitler's decision to halt the advance on Moscow and divert his forces south towards Kiev.
The Soviets were completely fooled by German moves. As usual, Stalin refused to sanction a withdrawal before the pocket was sealed.
By the end of September Kiev had fallen and over , Russian troops killed or captured. In October Kharkov fell, but by now the Germans were exhausted.
The fighting had severely depleted their ranks and supply lines were stretched to the limit. For now, the southern front stayed where it was.
In the north too, German forces had reached their limit. In September, with the aid of their Finnish Allies, they cut Leningrad off from the rest of Russia, but lacked the strength to take the city.
Instead, Hitler ordered that it be starved into submission. The epic siege would last days. Despite heavy losses, morale remained high until the autumn when the advance lost momentum, and the weather turned for the worse.
Hitler now decided to resume the battle for Moscow. On 2 October he unleashed Operation 'Typhoon'. He believed the Russians had been fatally weakened and lacked the strength to defend their capital - one more push would see it fall and victory would be his.
But the Red Army had been reinforced. Almost a million Soviet troops were in place, although they had few tanks and aircraft left.
A multi-layered ring of defences had been thrown around the capital and its citizens had been mobilised. The German offensive was carried out by a reinforced Army Group Centre, comprising three infantry armies and three panzer groups - 1 million men and 1, tanks.
However the Luftwaffe was weak after over three months of sustained operations. And the weather was beginning to turn. Once again the initial assault was a success.
The Russians were down to about 90, men. But as they reached the approaches to Moscow, the German formations slowed to a crawl.
Autumn rains had turned the dirt roads into rivers of mud. The Germans chose to temporarily halt operations. Despite the huge upheavals as industrial plants were relocated eastwards, Soviet war production expanded dramatically during the second half of In mid-November, with the temperature dropping and the ground now frozen hard, the panzers attempted a final pincer attack around Moscow itself.
The delay had given the Soviets time to bring in further reinforcements, including reservists and troops from Siberia and the eastern borders.
The northern German pincer was the most successful and got within 12 miles of the city. German officers could see the Kremlin buildings through their field glasses.
The Germans also tried attacking in the centre, along the Minsk-Moscow road. On 2 December a reconnaissance unit got within 5 miles of Moscow.
Though tantalisingly close, this was the limit of the entire advance. The depleted German units were exhausted and frozen into inactivity in the deep snow.
On 5 December the Soviets launched a surprise counter-offensive. The Germans were forced into a retreat, despite Hitler's call to defend every foot of ground.
Guderian and several other senior generals who advised withdrawal were sacked. The Russians succeeded in crushing various German formations in encirclements of their own.
The Luftwaffe struggled to operate but performed vital work ferrying supplies to cut off units and harrying the Russian advance.
Army Group Centre was pushed back up to miles from Moscow. The graves of German dead are marked with a simple cross and their steel helmets.
The Germans suffered over , casualties during Operation 'Barbarossa', with some , men killed. By comparison, 30, died during the campaign in the west in Operation 'Barbarossa' had clearly failed.
Despite the serious losses inflicted on the Red Army and extensive territorial gains, the mission to completely destroy Soviet fighting power and force a capitulation was not achieved.
One of the most important reasons for this was poor strategic planning.SchlieГlich wird eine Wette wahrscheinlich Wiesbaden Kleines Haus, wird der Betrag innerhalb Voraussetzungen verbunden, wie zum Beispiel gutgeschrieben und der SpaГ und vom 50 Freispiele Casilando Einsatz.
