More “mistakes” in Russia

I’ve found a lot more unfortunate “mistakes” by the Zionist-controlled Adolf Hitler in the invasion of the Soviet Union (Operation Barbarossa).

I´m no expert at Russia or the Soviet Union, but even I know that the very cold winters are a major problem in an invasion.
In May 1942, Winston Churchill mocked Hitler over his "blunder" of invading Russia:
Quote:
There is a winter, you know, in Russia. For a good many months the temperature is apt to fall very low. There is snow, there is frost, and all that. Hitler forgot about this Russian winter. He must have been very loosely educated.
We all heard about it at school; but he forgot it. I have never made such a bad mistake as that.
Mistake #17
Operation Barbarossa was started on 22 June 1941, by starting it 3 months earlier there would have been 3 months more to finish it before the cold, wet winter.

Mistake #18
The German commissariat had not transported enough woollen hats, gloves, long johns and overcoats to Russia. In other words: they intentionally let the German troops freeze to death.
With the result that thousands of soldiers lost limbs, ears, noses, fingers, sexual organs and/or eyelids: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/history/...he-Fuhrer.html


There were 3 German army groups to invade the Soviet Union (north, centre, and south).


Two posts ago, is information on the south group that was sent from Stalingrad to the oil fields, and back again and I’ll not add much on the successful sabotage of their mission.

Army Group Centre is the most powerful of the 3 groups.
Between 22 June and 3 July 1941 they encircle Russians at Bialystok and Minsk and catch 420.000 soldiers, 1.500 canons, 2.500 tanks and 1.669 airplanes. Many Russian soldiers escape, so “only” 290.000 are captivated.
By 10 July, they reach Smolensk, which is taken on 16 July. Germans have already advanced 650 km.

Mistake #19
Everything is going great for the German army. On 19 July, when the centre group should progress to Moscow, Hitler orders most of its panzers south-east to Kiev. As a result Moscow can’t be taken.
More than 2 months later, the end of September, the centre group continues its march on Moscow. At that time the Russian have reinforced the Moscow and winter comes quickly.

Moscow wasn’t only important for the moral.
Moscow was/is a big transport centre (railroads, roads), apart from being the administrative centre. If Moscow had been taken, the Red Army would have gotten into trouble because lack of supply. This might have made conquering (the rest of) the Soviet Union relatively easy.

Army Group North advances quickly to Leningrad.
Already on 26 June they have travelled 300 km and reached the Dvina River.

Mistake #20
Everything goes well for the Wehrmacht, but then Group north is ordered to stop for 6 days.

By 4 July, panzers are at Ostrov; only 220 km from the Dvina River. On 14 July, they are on the Louga River, 120 km from Leningrad.

Mistake #21
But again, they’re stopped for 6 days.

Mistake #22
Also on 14 July, part of the infantry is sent to the east to attack Russians at Polotsk.

Army Group South progresses swiftly from June 23 to 29.
On 9 July, they are 75 km from Kiev.
Between 15 July and 8 August they kill 200.000 Russians and imprison 100.000 more.
By repeatedly creating more groups, Hitler weakens their force.
Arguably Stalingrad wasn’t even an important strategic objective, but the oil of the Caucasus was.
Destroying the oil supply of the Russian would have gotten them into trouble.

Mistake #23
Only between 10 and 12 October, (only) Grozny was bombed. Grozny and Maykop (which had already been taken) together accounted for only 10% of oil production.
Baku (460 km south from Grozny) accounted for the remaining 90%. Germans bombers could have bombed it in August.

Mistake #24
At the beginning of November, Hitler sends a substantial number of aircrafts to the Mediterranean.

Mistake #25
In large parts of the Soviet Union, Stalin wasn’t too popular (in particular in the Ukraine).
The German army came as conquering oppressors; if they had come as “liberators” they could have used Soviets against Stalin.

Some more peculiarities...
How could Stalin be surprised by the invasion, when he knew that the whole German army was mobilized?

Hitler didn’t continue the attack in the north, but instead attacked in the south.
In the south, unlike in the north, the Russians could retreat long distance without losing crucial territories: http://hitler-the-jew-and-the-faked-...ween-1941.html

Believe it or not, but in the 1930s and 1940s most Americans didn’t want to be involved in another bloody war orchestrated by Britain.
After the (staged?) attack on Pearl Harbor, the US declared war on Japan, but not on Germany.

Mistake #26
Just 3 days after Pearl Harbor, on 11 December 1941, Hitler declared war on the US.
In doing so, Hitler effectively requested the US to help his British masters…
