1941 Operation Barbarossa - invasion of the Soviet Union
June 2021 marks 80 years since the launch of Operation Barbarossa (22nd June 1941):

Operation Barbarossa was the code name for Nazi Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II. Only two years earlier, the Germans and the Soviets had signed a non-aggression pact. The eventual failure of Operation Barbarossa was Hitler's first major defeat on land, and marked the beginning Nazi Germany's downfall.
