Nazi Germany invaded Russia in June 22, 1941.
Hitler wanted to crush Russia, burn Moscow to the ground, and probably would have exterminated five times more Russians than Jews were killed in WWII.
At the end of WWII, 27 million Soviet citizens had been killed, more than 20 million of those deaths were Russians.
The modern, technologically advanced and powerful Nazi military swept into the Russian heartland in the summer of 1941. Bombing and burning all structures, and massacring people (suspected Communists, Russian Jews, Russian intellectuals and liberals, and resistance fighters) as they moved at lightening speed.
It was a blood bath, and the Russian military was unprepared for such an onslaught. They were finally able to deploy and stabilize their forces near the outskirts of Moscow and around their holy city of Saint Petersburg.
Hitler was angry that Moscow was still free. He ordered his forces to take the city and burn it to the ground, killing everyone.
Stalin, who led the Soviet Union, had killed many of Russia's best generals in the 1930's. Their replacements were neither capable nor able to hold off the final push by the Nazis to Moscow. Stalin reluctantly brought in General Marshall Georgy Zhukov, who he despised, but he had not killed, instead had sent him to Mongolia in the 1930's to hold of the Japanese from taking Russian territory in the Far East.
Marshal Zhukov, brought in Mongolian troops to defend Moscow. Telling the soldiers they must die to protect the city.
The Mongolian soldiers, who had great respect for Zhukov, vowed never to let Nazi boots step onto Moscow streets....unless it was covered in their blood.
Zhukov and his Mongolian contingents pushed back the Nazi advance. The tenacity of the Mongolian soldiers and the brilliant strategies of Zhukov, shocked the German High Command and sent Hitler into an angry tirade.
Zhukov was now put in charge of the entire Soviet military.
When Berlin was surrounded in April 1945, the US, Britain and Soviet Russia conferred about the battle that would be one of the bloodiest of the war. It was estimated that over 100,000 soldiers would die trying to take Berlin. The US could not afford to lose that many soldiers. Neither could Britain. Russia had already lost over 20 million people, yet with the US and Britain afraid of battling the Germans in the capital city, Zhukov was ordered by Stalin to plan and commence the Battle of Berlin.
The Russians spent 15 days battling Nazi forces in Berlin, avenue by avenue, alley by alley. When the Russians were less than a mile from Hitler's Bunker, he killed himself along with his new wife Eva Braun. Final death toll: 30,000 Russian soldiers (considerably less than the estimates, but still too high for the American or British public to accept had it been their own soldiers). The German High Command began to negotiate with Zhukov, they wanted a conditional surrender. Allowing German administration of the city.
Zhukov refused, saying after 20 million Russian deaths, the Russian people would accept nothing less than an "unconditional surrender." On May 8, 1941, the commander of all the forces of Nazi Germany, Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel, signed an unconditional surrender document in the presence of Marshal Zhukov. The document ended the worst war in European history.
Today the Russians call the end of WWII, "Victory Day." It is also called, "the day with tears in our eyes."

What precisely do you propose by using effectively? the ingredient to undergo in suggestions is that for the time of one in each and every of those case we won't be able to enable the uncomplicated principals to alter. meaning no treating the conquered human beings nicely (via fact the Nazi plan for them grew to become into extermination and/or dying by using slave hard artwork. It additionally means the Nazis proceed to be in cost as all of us else does not have stricken till the conflict interior the West grew to become into over. apart from, the two-front conflict ought to proceed to be as Britain isn't purely going to interrupt down without invasion (and because Sealion grew to become into exceptionally plenty the dumbest theory ever concieved it won't be able to take place.) stress an armistice similiar to that for the time of WWI? particular, they very just about did that for the time of OTL. Have the Soviet wintry climate offensives fail in '40-one. Stalin might panic and sue for peace. it might final consistent with probability a decade till now the Nazis moved to end them, even though it might technically be a successfull invasion. gain Hitler's objective and take eu Russia... nicely, definite. Have the above no longer take place, and make the Soviets lose Moscow, then Stalingrad. The mixed flow of having the Germans take the two his capital (and center of the rail community), and the city named in his honor (plus a brilliant business base) might force Stalin to slaughter his maximum appropriate commanders. If he does so then the pink military interior the West is doomed. At this factor the Soviet government might nicely carry close at any words they are able to get. and that they are going to be undesirable, very, very undesirable. (i might advise searching for an cyber web replace background tale called the Anglo-American/Nazi conflict in case you like one in each and every of those situation performed out to the fashionable-day. Take each and every of the Soviet Union to the Pacific... F**ok no. Russia is purely too massive and has too many human beings. Marching the German military into Siberia may be a dying sentence.
