Great Patriotic War 1941-1945
German invasion into the territory of the USSR: The initial period of the war (22 June 1941 - 18 November 1942)

Great Patriotic War reasons
 Hitler's desire for world domination of the German nation (the idea of Pan-German)  Need for conquest by Nazi Germany of natural resources of the USSR, it needs to continue the war against Britain and the U.S.A.  Fatal ideological contradictions between the capitalist and socialist systems
At dawn on June 22, 1941 aerial bombardment and the onset of the German Army launched a plan "Barbarossa" . It was designed for Blitzkrieg ( Blitzkrieg ) and involves the joint action of three army groups (GA ) : "North " was aimed at Leningrad, "the Centre" - to Moscow , "South" - to Ukraine. By September, the enemy had to go on line Arkhangelsk- Astrakhan. Plan "Barbarossa" was part of a global plan "Ost" , provides for the phased establishment on the territory of the former USSR "new order" , ie enslavement and partial destruction of the Soviet population .
Causes of Red Army's defeat at the beginning of the war:  military and economic potential of Germany, to use the resources of almost all Western Europe, greatly exceeded the capacity of industry in the USSR;  Hitler's army had two years' experience of modern warfare, while the professional level of the Soviet troops, particularly commanders, after the mass repressions in the army, was low;  major flaws of the Soviet leadership: underestimation of mechanized formations, outdated ideas about methods of warfare;  Stalin's intervention in the command and control, in particular - the order of the transition to the offensive in the first days of the war, which cost the Soviet Army and the huge losses led to its disruption;  international situation, in determining the timing of a possible outbreak of the war that led to the surprise attack of the enemy.
Reasons for failure of blitzkrieg plan:  Mass courage and heroism of Soviet soldiers.  From the first day of the war more than a month defended border defenders of the Brest Fortress.  June 26 crew accomplished the feat Nikolai Gastello sent his crippled bomber on a column of tanks.  These and many other manifestations of courage Soviet soldiers dreaded enemy, deprived of his faith in victory.  Soviet generals acquired combat experience necessary to confront the latest tactics of the enemy.  Appearance on the battlefield the latest models of Soviet military equipment, vehicles surpassed the enemy (KV-1 and T-34, Il-2, rocket launcher "Katyusha").  Complex natural and climatic conditions of the western and southwestern regions of the USSR (the summer heat, dust, autumn slush).

Kirov and Kharkov plant for the production of diesel engines were merged with the Chelyabinsk Tractor for production of tanks ("Tankograd").  Accelerated construction of new industrial facilities.

Battle of Stalingrad
- the strategic initiative for the time has passed to the Red Army. As a result of the Battle of Stalingrad the German Wehrmacht suffered a heavy defeat, causing him the first time in the war, was forced to leave the huge territories captured with great difficulty in the summer of 1942.
