Hitler's attack on the USSR began in the early morning at 3 hours 15 minutes. On June 22, 1941, thousands of German guns opened heavy fire at previously explored targets on Soviet soil. German aviation invaded Union airspace to a depth of 250-300 km from the border and bombed airfields, railway junctions, naval bases and major cities. Wehrmacht shock groups invaded Soviet territory. The war was declared by Berlin after the invasion began. Finland, Hungary, Romania and Italy also entered the war with the USSR. Thus began the Great Patriotic War.
The main instigators of world war
The crisis of capitalism (the absence of new territories for plunder) and the incompleteness of the First World War, after which the owners of the West failed to build a New World Order, led to the beginning of the Second World War. The new global war, according to the plans of the owners of the West, was to end with a total plunder of the Japanese Empire, Germany (and Europe as a whole, placed under the full control of London and Washington) and Russia-USSR. With the participation of part of the elite of continental Europe, the hosts of Britain and the USA should not have left competitors and rivals on the planet.
Humanity was expecting global slavery. The model of the New World Order was frankly shown by Hitler and his ideologues, who clearly copied the methods of British and American figures. This racism, eugenics, the destruction of the "inferior", the transformation of the remaining "subhumans" into slaves and servants. Thus, most of the population of Eurasia, Africa and America had a sad future - death in giant concentration camps or slavery. The "black sun" was supposed to receive full power on the planet.
But for this it was necessary to crush the Soviet Union, the Soviet (Russian) civilization, which presented the world with an alternative project of the future of humanity - the solar civilization, the society of creation and service. Where a new person who has thrown off the shackles of slavery and ignorance, physically and intellectually and spiritually developed, will be directed towards the stars, the bright future.
therefore the masters of the West gradually raised three centers of war - fascist Italy, Nazi Germany and militarist Japan. Also so-called. “The world behind the scenes” (“financial international”, “golden elite”, etc.) actively supported other projects, but on a regional scale - the great power, extreme nationalism, anti-Sovietism, Russophobia in Finland, Poland, the Baltic Limits, Romania, Hungary. At the same time, most of Europe was given to Nazi Germany, in order for Berlin to have the opportunity to mobilize all the forces of continental Europe against the USSR and had a calm rear. They sacrificed not only Czechoslovakia, but also Poland, which was previously not averse to attacking the Soviet Union together with Germany, and even France, which had the strongest army in Europe. The Czechoslovak, Polish and French leaders simply surrendered their countries, apparently submitting to the will of the masters of the West.
England, however, secretly guaranteed that she would not seriously fight with Germany, giving her the opportunity to crush the USSR. The mission of "the shadow of Hitler" ("Nazi number 2") R. Hess was just associated with these negotiations. In 1948, the Resident Director of the Office of Strategic Services in Bern during World War II, the future Director of the CIA (1953-1961) Allen Dulles admitted to this: “British intelligence in Berlin made contact with Rudolf Hess and with his help found a way out to Hitler Hess was told that if Germany declared war on the Soviets, England would cease hostilities. ”
Thus, Hitler received direct access to the USSR border, control over the resources of most of Europe, quiet rear and a guarantee of security from England, while the Germans were fighting with the Russians.
The reason for the Anglo-Saxons' hatred of the Russians was that the Russians were the only ones who could defeat them in the Big Game, where the stakes were on the planet. Having won the First World War, the owners of Britain and the United States could not accept the fact that in Europe and the world there exists the only state beyond the control of the global Anglo-American parasite - the Soviet Union. Since the XVIII — XIX centuries. England made a lot of effort to crush the Russian empire, turning it into its own raw materials appendage, and the Russians into “cannon fodder”, which would assert the Anglo-Saxons domination in the world. The Russian-Turkish wars, the anti-French coalitions, the Eastern Crimean War, the Russian-Japanese war, both revolutions are all links in one chain aimed at eliminating Russian statehood and civilization. In 1917, the Western masters, who skillfully used the internal contradictions that had accumulated in Russia, almost succeeded in destroying Russian civilization. An open invasion began to divide and plunder Russia, which was divided into spheres of influence and semi-colonial "Bantustans." But The Bolsheviks, among whom the core of the Russian statesmen was formed, were able to outplay the powerful enemy by creating the Soviet statehood and the Soviet project, which embodied the age-old aspirations of the Russian people about social justice. Stalin began his Great Game, violating the plans of our geopolitical "partners" of the enemy.
Then the owners of England and the United States already in the 1920-ies began to support and sponsor the project "Hitler". Moreover, Adolf Hitler himself was not against the "onslaught to the East." Hitler's Germany was turned into a "ram" to crush the USSR, the Soviet project as a whole, which threatened the domination of the West on the planet. For a view, England declared war on Germany, but in reality France and England did not fight while the Hitlerite hordes invaded Poland (“strange war”). And when Hitler turned to the west, France threw out the white flag, and the British quickly rolled over to the island, without putting up serious resistance, creating an image of “invincibility” of the Wehrmacht and the Third Reich. From here, Dunkirk, when the Germans pressed the British expeditionary forces to the sea, but did not destroy them and allowed them to evacuate with insignificant damage.
In this way, England showed Hitler that the way to the East is open and an equal partnership is possible in building the New World Order. 10 May 1941, Rudolf Hess made his famous flight to Britain. Obviously, he received certain guarantees. The British promised not to open a second front in Europe and not to interfere with Hitler's troops to conquer the Soviet Union. In addition, it was about the participation of the British Empire in the war against the USSR. Soviet writer, historian Lev Bezymensky believed that "Hess was instructed to make the last attempt to create a unified pan-European coalition" against the USSR. However, in a direct war with the USSR, London wisely did not get involved, as usual using someone else's "cannon fodder" in their own interests, this time the Germans. Until 1943, when it became clear that the Soviet Union had survived and a turnaround occurred in the war, the British did not prevent Germany from fighting in the east, limiting itself to affairs on the periphery.
Thus, the owners of Britain and the United States pushed Germany and Russia together for the second time and hoped to eventually divide the “skins” of both Russian and German bears. Hitler was a "ram" for the crushing blow to the Soviet (Russian) civilization. The masters of England and the United States act according to the principle of "divide, control, and conquer," preferring to use other people's resources and forces to achieve the desired goals. Similarly, in modern times, the masters of the West, with the support of regional eastern satellites, created the “Caliphate” project, which launched a new world war and opened the Middle Eastern front of a global war. The “ram” of Islamic radicalism unleashed a civilizational war into which the Islamic world, European and Russian civilizations had already been drawn. According to the plans of the owners of the West, the whole of Eurasia should become a battlefield.
The situation before the attack of Nazi Germany on the USSR
The flames of war, which in 1930-ies covered one country after another (China, Ethiopia, Spain, etc.), in September 1939 flared up across Europe. Hitler's Germany captured Poland, most of Northern Europe, occupied France. Then the Balkans came under attack, in April 1941, the Germans captured Yugoslavia and Greece. The fighting took place in the Atlantic, the Mediterranean and in Africa. In Asia, the Japanese Empire continued its offensive in China, seeking to establish itself in French Indochina. By June 1941, the global war had drawn into its networks about 30 states with a population of more than 1 billion people and swallowed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
German block. Hitler Germany in Europe achieved impressive success. The old rival of Germany, France, was partially occupied and subordinated. The Nazi "new order" was established in Poland, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway, Yugoslavia and Greece. Berlin created a strong aggressive bloc. Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, puppet states Croatia and Slovenia joined the Tripartite Pact of Germany, Italy and Japan. Finland entered the military alliance with Germany. The Finnish leadership dreamed of “Great Finland” at the expense of the Russian lands and planned to seize Karelia, the Kola Peninsula and a number of other regions of the USSR.
Germany had the most powerful economy in Europe (not counting the USSR) and one of the strongest in the world. The economy was militarized. By redistributing human, industrial and raw materials in favor of industries that worked for the war, upgrading industrial equipment and enhancing the exploitation of workers, including the use of labor resources in subordinate territories, Hitler’s leadership in 1940 managed to significantly increase industrial output in the first half of 1941. products, especially military. In addition, the material and human resources of the occupied European countries, almost 6,5 thousand enterprises that worked for the Wehrmacht, fulfilling military orders for 4,6 billion marks, were at the disposal of the Third Reich. 3,1 was poured into German industry by foreign workers, mainly Poles, French and Italians, which made up about 9% of the total labor force of the Reich. At the same time, Germany made extensive use of the economic resources of its allies. For example, Romania reimbursed about 60% of the needs of the Reich in fuel. Hungary supplied bauxite and food, Bulgaria became an agricultural colony. Strategic raw materials came from countries that retained neutrality: Sweden, Turkey, Portugal, Spain, etc.
Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Switzerland and Sweden tried to maintain neutrality, although they supplied Germany with strategic raw materials and military materials. Switzerland and Sweden became the “banks” of the Reich to “launder” and preserve the loot throughout Europe, and then in the USSR, good (gold, jewels, etc.). Spain rendered assistance to Germany with a limited military contingent, but refused to participate in a full-fledged war. Spain and Portugal were the “gate” of Germany for the supply of some resources from America and other regions. Turkey also avoided direct participation in the war, but allowed Germany to gain access to the Black Sea through the straits. The Turks, like the Japanese, were waiting for the decisive success of the Third Reich to start a war with the USSR and seize the Soviet Caucasus. Strong was the influence of the Germans in Persia, which de facto turned into an ally of Germany and a springboard for a strike on the USSR and the possessions of Britain. After winning the war with the USSR, Berlin planned to turn these countries into its allies or to send troops into them. So, there were plans to seize Switzerland, Sweden, the introduction of troops in Spain and Portugal.
Fascist Italy, due to its defeat in Africa, experienced serious difficulties and an acute shortage of raw materials. However, receiving some support from the Third Reich, Italy continued to show some success in developing the economy, especially in the military sector. The Mussolini government concentrated its main efforts in the Mediterranean, North Africa and the Balkan Peninsula, but the Italians planned to take part in the war with the USSR, for which the expeditionary force was allocated.
By the middle of 1941, the German bloc in Europe had great power, which was based on the German Wehrmacht. The personnel of the German armed forces had two years of combat experience (and the officers, basically, had a great experience of the First World War behind them) were ideologically brought up in the spirit of Nazism, racial superiority, anti-Sovietism, and psychologically processed. As a result, the Wehrmacht was a single combat unit, with a high fighting spirit. In total, the armed forces of the German bloc numbered 10,4 million, and together with the border troops and other militias, more than 13 million people. Of these, about 70% was in Germany, 17% was in Italy, the rest were in Hungary, Romania and Finland.

Japan. The Japanese Empire at that time continued its offensive in China and made every effort to prepare for a big war in the Pacific basin. Thus, direct military spending in 1941 increased by 1,6 compared to the previous year and amounted to 12,5 billion yen. Japan tried to maximize the use of available resources (in Korea, Manchuria and China) and rapidly expanded the production of military equipment and weapons. Secretly preparing a strike against powerful naval powers - the United States and England, which the Japanese logically regarded as the main competitors in the Asia-Pacific region, the Japanese empire paid special attention to the increase in the naval fleet and aviation. In 1941, compared with 1940, Japan almost 1,8 times increased the production of ships and aircraft. The growth of ground forces continued. By the end of 1940, the number of Japanese armed forces reached nearly 1,7 million, of which 1,3 million were in the ground forces. The Navy had 202 warships of the main classes, including 52 submarines, and more than 1 thousand aircraft.
The Japanese military-political leadership adhered to the course of establishing its dominance in the Asia-Pacific region. Japan’s efforts were aimed at creating a huge colonial empire, with a metropolis on the Japanese islands and based on the resources of the subordinate territories. The second military-industrial base was created in Manchuria (Northeast China). The leadership of Japan was maneuvering away from specific commitments to Berlin, and was not going to go to war with the USSR at the first request of the Reich. The time of the beginning of aggression against the USSR. The Japanese Empire put it in dependence on the success of Germany in the "onslaught to the East."
England. The English leadership at this time rather calmly transferred the economy to "war rails" and deployed armed forces. By the middle of 1941, the danger of the invasion of German forces in England had virtually disappeared. Even the massed bombing of German aviation almost ceased. Germany focused all its attention on preparations for a war with the Soviet Union.
At the same time, the material and financial support of the United States, as well as the resource base of the vast British colonial empire and currency reserves, gold of the countries occupied by Germany, which had been transferred to London in advance, played an important role. An informal, legally unformed union was established between England and the USA. Both great powers exchanged scientific and intelligence information, developed military cooperation. The American fleet guarded the maritime communications in the Western Atlantic, replacing British ships there. American shipbuilding capabilities were used to repair British ships. Plans were made for the advancement of the American military machine to the line of Iceland, the Azores, and Martinique. American and English headquarters held meetings to develop a common strategy, after the entry of the States into the war.
By the summer of 1941, the number of British armed forces reached more than 3,2 million people: 2,2 million people in the army, more than 600 thousand - in the Air Force, about 400 thousand - in the fleet. In the English army there were 33 divisions (including 9 armored), 29 separate infantry brigades. The Navy numbered around 400 warships, including 15 battleships and battlecruisers, 7 aircraft carriers, 68 cruisers.
The British leadership planned to use the clash of two titans - Germany and the USSR, in their own interests. London hoped that Germany would crush the USSR, but it would be greatly weakened, it would expose its rear. After that, it will be possible in alliance with the United States to finish off Germany and establish its New World Order. Or to support the leadership of the Reich opposition to Hitler (part of the senior officers), eliminate the Fuhrer, who began to show independence and relied on an equal partnership with Britain in the post-war world. Thus, the Anglo-Saxon elite planned to establish full control over the planet following a global war.
USA. The United States, with its enormous military and economic potential, gradually moved away from the policy of neutrality, teaching the population to think about the need to participate in the war. Therefore, the government of F. Roosevelt assisted England and planned at the first stage to refrain from direct participation in the fight, while building up its military power. Washington was counting on the results of the war to spread its domination in Europe, on the ruins of the shaky colonial empires of its "partners" in the Pacific. Britain was waiting for the fate of the “junior partner” in the new world.
The American leadership took into account the increased threat to its interests in the Pacific from the Japanese Empire. Therefore, the American government was actively preparing for war in the framework of the “undeclared war”: it passed a law on military service, sharply increased spending on military spending and increased military forces, expanded military production, etc. Military production was stimulated by extensive government orders and orders from England. The total number of armed forces in just one year — from June 1940 to June 1941, increased 4 times (!) And amounted to 1,8 million. The US Navy consisted of 340 ships of the main classes, including 113 submarines. At the same time, the army and navy continued to grow rapidly.
China. China was one of the largest states on the planet, but its position was very difficult. The Chinese state was extremely weakened by a long period of semi-colonial existence, when the Chinese people were plundered by the European powers, Japan and the USA, as well as local feudal, military and criminal "elites". The economic backwardness, terrible corruption, the occupation of about a third of the territory by the Japanese, where important industrial centers and a significant part of the population were located, the threat of a new civil war made China a victim that could not restore independence and territorial integrity without external support.
In June, 1941, China had a large military force: about 2,3 million soldiers led by the bourgeois nationalist Kuomintang party and up to 900 thousands of partisans and soldiers who fought under the leadership of the communists (CPC). However, almost all of them were poorly organized and armed, had low discipline and training. The Kuomintang Chiang Kai-shek and the Communists often clashed, which complicated the struggle with Japan. Therefore, the Japanese troops relatively easily smashed the Chinese.
