This is bloody hysterical!!! Positive rep awarded sir! Not eveyone, only the misinformed.... Your personal opinion is in contradition with one of Germany's top brass... Gothard Heinrici. He has pointed out why Barbarossa had failed even before the battle of Moscow. Have you even read his reasons which I had posted? Yes, the Germans made remarkable progress in the first 6 months. However everything started to slowly unravel from then on.
