 1941: OPERATION BARBAROSSA
In retrospect, Barbarossa has to be considered fatally flawed, but based on information available to the German planners in the fall of 1940, after the sequential fall of every country Germany had targeted, they had every reason to expect that Barbarossa would be another Blitzkrieg success.
Barbarossa was planned as a ten-week campaign that would start on 15 May 1941, allowing for many months of favorable weather.
Operation Barbarossa was finally launched on 22 June 1941, with three Army Groups (North, Center, South) consisting of nineteen panzer divisions, 114 infantry divisions, fifteen motorized divisions, plus Finnish, Rumanian and Hungarian units, a force of more than 3 million soldiers, 3500 tanks, 7200 artillery pieces, 2000 planes and three-quarters of a million horses.

 Operation Barbarossa
The preliminary planning of 'Barbarossa', the German invasion of the USSR, began as early as August 1940 when General Marcks presented a plan for the defeat of the USSR in 9-17 weeks, using 110 infantry, and 24 Panzer divisions.
They operated some 60 miles ahead of the infantry and encircled the Red Army units by long range pincer movements and then wheeled inwards leaving the infantry to complete the encirclement.
This delay was crucial as it meant that 'Barbarossa' was extended until December and the German Army had not been prepared to fight in winter conditions.

 Operation Barbarossa: The Rape of Russia
Barbarossa was the largest military campaign of any time, and the sheer numbers defy believe, the Germans had assembled almost 140 divisions, including 17 panzer (Tanks) and 13 motorized.
It is important to remember that, by now Barbarossa had been in action for more than three months and despite the horrible loses suffered by the Russians and despite the fact that the 'door had been kicked in' in Smolenks and Kiev, the Red Army was far from being annihilated.
Operation Barbarossa was over with more that 10,000,000 death, Russian and Germans alike, but now the Germans would have to endure the same winter which broke Napoleon's back.

 PARAMETERS, US Army War College Quarterly - Spring 1999
Looking at the campaign as a whole, the significance of operations toward Leningrad at this point was not whether the city would capitulate, but whether as a supporting effort the attack through the Baltics would divert substantial forces away from the defense of Moscow, the true aim.
Supreme in the air, dominant on the ground, with all the advantages of the initiative and unchecked success, the final operational bound from Smolensk to Moscow against a shaken and demoralized Red Army was surely within their grasp, as the German generals themselves argued so vehemently.
In Barbarossa we see not only the potential for decisive victory, but also the terrible consequences of failure when soldiers and their political masters diverge.

It would be the duty of the operational group behind the first tactical zone to attack the flanks of the enemy army as it advanced farther east, exhausting the opponent and draining his strength while awaiting the proper moment for committing the third echelon, the strategic reserve, in an all-out counteroffensive maneuver{26}.
It was hoped that the operational echelon could exert enough pressure on the flanks of the Army Group, from around Gomel east of the Pripet and from Velikie Luki north of the Dvina River, to force the Germans to halt their advance along the Dnepr-Dvina line.
The operational echelon was also well positioned to fulfill its mission of weakening the main body of the German offensive north of the Pripet Marshes, mainly by flank attacks, and of arresting the eastward progress of the Wehrmacht at Smolensk in the central area.

 Barbarossa
To one of his generals he said, "We have only to kick in the door and the whole rotten structure will come crashing down," but shortly later he also stated, "At the beginning of each campaign one pushes a door into a dark, unseen room.
Stalin also announced a "scorched earth" policy to deny the Germans "a single engine, or a single railway truck, and not a pound of bread nor a pint of oil." He also announced with "a feeling of gratitude" the offers of assistance from Britain and the United States.
So desperate did the Russians become during the early stages of Operation Barbarossa to gain any support and assistance, they even signed an agreement with the Polish government-in-exile, with whom they were not in speaking terms since the Russian occupation of Eastern Poland in September, 1939.
