Fall 1941

The Tide of War Turns in Front of Moscow

From: The Myth of the Good War


Anaylzes Germany turning on Moscow in 1941 and how this was the turning point of the war. It was in front of Moscow, in December 1941, that the tide turned. Indeed, it was there that the blitzkrieg failed and that Nazi Germany was consequently forced to fight, without sufficient resources, the kind of protracted war that Hitler and his generals knew they could not possibly win.
