Land Hitler Conquered (in blue)

Here's the next page on Hitler. It's all about Hitler's attack on Russia. As I am reading a book about Hitler by Albert Marrin, I will write some information about him, chapter by chapter and use the same chapter headings. I have appreciated reading this book and have used it as a source for my summaries. This book is over 200 pages, and it is really worth the read.


Hitler backed stabbed Russia. After defeating Poland together, Hitler wanted to expand 'Just a bit more,'.. NOT. He planned the attack very carefully. Three armies: the major one attacked Moscow the Capital of Russia, the second took after Leningrad itself, the last army attacked Stalingrad.


MOSCOW


The Fast War technique was used again. The Panzer Tanks rolled across the Russian plains defeating all the little towns quickly. All the Armies that stood in there way was destroyed or fled quickly. The road to Moscow was pretty clear for the Panzers. When they reached Moscow, the attack came to a standstill. The inhabitants had built tank traps, big trenches and machine gun posts. The Inhabitants fought for Russia and for freedom. Stalin Russia man of steel couldn’t believe that Hitler had attacked the capital. He made the Russians fear him more than the Germans all traitor’s ready to give up, were killed.

Everyone waited for the Winter, There hope was in the GENERAL, General Winter. He was the General that defeated Napoleons army, In Napoleons great march. He doesn’t fight with men his fights with the temperature of the Russian winter. When that set in the Germans where dieing much more. And the Russian’s came out of the town in white coat. They lay on the ground with their rifles. If a German came near in their black uniforms, they would easy targets for the invisible Russians in the snow. In the Sub-Zero temperatures the Germans didn’t have fur coats like the Russians and froze to death. In the End the Germans never took the city. The campaign was called of and they retreated to a warmer place.

STALINGRAD


This campaign was to conquer land, lots of land. The Germans charged right up to Stalingrad but then the winter set in. The Germans pushed and pushed. The Woman like the British Woman held fast, flew planes and manned machine guns. The Germans paid very dearly in every step they took. The German forces pushed and pushed. The people of Stalingrad Used every inch of the defense, fought behind walls, in ruins, in houses on every floor. The German General asked to retreat but Hitler told them to keep attacking and made the General a Field Marshall. The highest point in the army, other Field Marshall never retreated. So if he did he would be the first to. But he still did. The little bit left of the Army was sent to Russian Concentrating camps.

LENINGRAD


Very similar was the attack on Leningrad. The Fast War technique was used again. The Panzer Tanks rolled across the Russian plains defeating all the little towns quickly. All the Armies that stood in there way was destroyed or fled quickly. The road to Leningrad was pretty free for the Panzer’s. When they reached Leningrad, the attack came to a standstill. Leningraders had built concrete walls in the city. They built tank traps and big trenches. The Germans were paying for every step in blood and lives. The General asked Hitler plenty of times to retreat. The answer was always the same, “Germans never retreat”. The Germans were dying terribly fast. The people were dying quickly also. For food they needed tickets and ticket thieves were very common. People killed to eat that person’s food. The starvation was terrible. There hope was in the GENERAL, General Winter. He was the General that defeated Napoleons army, In that great march. He doesn’t fight with men his fights with the temperature of the Russian winter. When that set in, the lake froze over (the biggest lake in Europe) and provisions where sent into the town. The Germans Froze also. They had to withdraw from the city
