|The Russian Front|
|Date||September 1, 1939 - March 15, 1947|
|Result|| Decisive Allied Victory
The multinational Axis forces, consisting of Germany, Hungary, Romania, Finland, and Lithuania.
Case Nevskii (Случай Не́вский) was the Russian war plan for the assault on Germany.
Army Group North
Army Group North, and its Finnish and Lithuanian Allies, were to advance through the Baltic states, liberating them from Russian domination, and then besieged and took Petrograd. Army Group North had the most enemy resistance.
But the Tsar was not going to surrender so quickly, a deadly battle ensued.
Army Group Centre
Army Group South
Army Group South had the longest way to go, from Romania to Rostov and then into the Caucasus mountains, to cut of Russia's supply of oil. The joint Romanian and German attack went ahead against moderate Russian resistance.
Russian Winter Offensive
Fall Blau and Tsaritsyn
This battle was comparable to St. Louis for 3 reasons: they involved street to street fighting, there was a high death rate and they both ran along rivers.
Turkey and Germany
The joint German and Turkish attack on the Russian Oil fields.
The End of the Siege of Petrograd
Russian reinforcements managed to make it through, defeating the Army Group North.
The Latvian Offensive was launched by Germany and Lithuania in order to strike back at the Russians, who occupied all of Estonia and Latvia. This led to the battle of Riga, where there were massive battles between T-34/85s, Tsar Alexei II tanks against Tiger II, Panther and Panzer tanks. The Russians were forced to withdraw, and the Baltic states were under German Control, for the Moment.
Battle Of Kursk
By no means was Russia sone with defeating their nemesis.
The End in the East
The Bear tank had finally been mass-produced in enough numbers to make a difference. Intelligence Chief Lavrentiy beria had ordered a massive disinfo campaign to make it look as though the Russians were reinforcing the Caucasus as well as arrange for planting of fake intel showing Rommel, Jodl and other high ranking generals on IID payroll. The plan worked, with the OKW purged of the suspected plotters. However, this weakened overall command.
