World War II Every Day with Army Sizes

  • Am Vor 6 Monate

    ChristopherChristopher

    Hi everyone, I'm sorry for the very long wait in uploads, however, hopefully you will understand why, as it has taken me almost a year to research and produce this video.

    On September 1st, 1939, Germany declares war on Poland and throws the world into the largest conflict humanity has ever seen. I have done my best to do accurate borders, encirclements and army sizes.

    If you see any mistakes or inaccuraices, or if you simply just have suggestions, then let me kno in the comments and I will include them in my next video!

    Besides, sit back and relax, I hope that you enjoy the video!

It's irrelevant that any authorities were Jewish. You're just showing your vile Jew-hate. Sick. Pilecki was charged with illegal border crossing, use of forged documents, not enlisting with the military, carrying illegal arms, espionage for Anders, espionage for "foreign imperialism" (government-in-exile), and planning to assassinate several officials of the Ministry of Public Security of Poland. Pilecki denied the assassination charges, as well as espionage, although he admitted to passing information to the II Corps, of which he considered himself an officer and thus claimed that he was not breaking any laws. He pleaded guilty to the other charges. He was sentenced to death on 15 May with three of his comrades. Pleas for pardon from a number of Auschwitz survivors were ignored;

@Agente Real Equating the Soviets with the Germans in this context is completely wrong and contradicts historical reality! Just for comparison, the Nazi nation murdered 6 million Polish citizens and the Soviets a comparatively few 150,000. Certainly the terror of the Soviets was cruel and bloody in Poland. But that was nothing comparable to the Germans. According to the communist ideology, the Poles had to be forced to communism by force and the terror against the Poles was used to break the resistance of the Polish population. The Poles should be forced to communist happiness and certainly not exterminated. With the Germans it was very different. They also used terror to break the resistance of the population, but there was another reason because according to the Nazi nation's ideology, most Poles should be exterminated and a minority enslaved. So in all, around 6 million Polish citizens were murdered by the Nazi nation. Incidentally, this did not only apply to the Poles, but in fact all Slavs were to be exterminated according to the ideology of the Nazi nation! As explained in detail in the comment above regarding the Generalplan Ost (English: Master Plan for the East). As a result of the implementation of the plan died during the occupation of the Slavic lands indirectly and directly in 30 millions of deaths of ethnic Slavs by starvation, disease, or extermination through labor. The genocides on the Slavic nations, gypsies and the Jews were partial carried out with industrial means to murder as many people as possible in the shortest possible time. The Nazi nation also murdered or maimed many people through human experimentation. It was a gigantic murder machine. The Nazi nation responsible for the death of some 50 million by the consequences of the war and the various genocides. Whereby a large part were murdered civilians. What is decisive, however, is that they murdered millions of children in the process. The Soviets, on the other hand, mostly spared children. Nothing compares to the crimes of the Nazi nation. Also the number of victims! The crimes of the Nazi nation were unique in world history. Nothing compares to the crimes of the Nazi nation. Also the number of victims!

@mer3abec Stalin knows Hitler would attack not that early. If you know the numbers on planes before most likely a weeks before German invasion. Almost 50k artilleries and thousands of planes outnumbered Germans on the border. Stalin postponed his plans to invade Na*i Germany and I think he favoured defensive stance before even he prepared to make fortifications on the borders of Poland Na*i Germany already invaded caught Soviets on surprise of their camps and airbases.

They lost plenty in Finnish war and Germany didn't cross "original" Soviet Union border, but the one with captured between 1939-1941 Polish and Romanian territories. Plus West Ukrainians were fighting for Hitler, because he allegedly promised freedom to them, even Ukraine as the country never existed at that point, just the nation. That's why you see so much contradiction in Russia VS Ukraine conflict, West Ukraine was always Russians enemy.

Once Operation Barbarossa failed in late 1941, the writing was on the wall and the war was basically lost for Nazi Germany. The entire German strategy depended on a rapid victory (3 months or so). Given the vast size and logistical issues, there was no way Nazi Germany could have won a protracted war of attrition against the USSR.

Great video but just two issues that caught my attention - North Afrika numbers for the British are waaaay too low in 41. it seems it compared overall Axis strength vs only frontline troops for the Allies. And for Barbarossa again it seems to plot all Axis forced planned to be used for the East vs only immediately used Soviet forces. That is of course understandable but both times create the impression that the Axis were vastly outnumbering the British and Soviets but that wasnt the case.

Had they not used them the Germans would not have run into such massive logistical issues that rotted their army from the inside out. And the nazis did not kill people because they "didn't want them to suffer" LMAO. Did you forget about the many accounts of German troops literally burning entire villages alive? Or how they took food out of soviet lands to feed their people? You make it seem like the Germans were not the REASON why the soviets had to use such tactics, who wishes to burn down your own country and destroy your own infrastructure? And they literally could NOT let the Germans take Stalingrad because that was pretty much the final line of defense before the Germans took the Caucasus oil. They NEEDED the oil and one of biggest reasons Germany lost is their crippling lack of oil. WW1's relations with WW2 can be summed up as "revanchism". The Germans got angry because they lost the war and "Buh Huh bad unfair treaty" (it wasn't unfair, in fact it was much better than what they wanted to do with Russia) and then started another war...

It’s terrifying to see how quickly Germany took the majority of Europe. Also, if the Soviets had capitulated (unlikely since they had backup plans if Moscow fell) the the war likely would have been lost. The US were hesitant to get involved and the British simply didn’t have the scale to defend themselves and the oil fields from the power of the Axis, if they had lost either the Axis would have been insurmountable.

Vor Monat

​@Chris Hamilton He kept succeeding early primarily because his wiretapping agency fed him everything foreign diplomats were saying to their home offices and he knew he could play them off one another. He was an opportunist but never thought himself invincible. His general staff on the other hand constantly exaggerated their gains and downplayed their losses, to the point where because of them Hitler was making plans and giving orders based on the existence of divisions which had been destroyed. What they did equates to treason, but naturally at Nuremburg they saved their own reputation by pretending Hitler was the one who botched things. In reality the biggest tactical mistake he had any control over was his overreliance on his subordinates, such as his foreign minister who assured him the west wouldn't declare over Poland or his old WWI friend who ran their airforce so badly the British still make jokes about how he deserves an Allied medal. Basically the one man who stuck by him at Nuremberg had been imprisoned in Britain for most of the war, after flying there on what was very likely a peace mission. If it was, and I believe so, then that pretty much puts to bed any claim of a German invincibility complex as well as the assumption Germany even could have made peace earlier. It was a struggle for dominance and the British don't tend to take half measures when they get involved in those.

Vor 28 Tage

@Vlad It was more so his incompetence was metered out by his general staff who took his unrealistic goals and made them workable. Downside to this was when Germany kept succeeding this only inflated Hitler's ego and made him more extreme in his self image of a great conqueror, leading him to overextend, under-prepare and shut himself off from the words of his generals. Thus the nation was doomed. And I have no doubt his intellect was far above par, but when mixed with overconfidence and advancing age even a genius can become a moron. I am saddened by how far Germany has fallen compared to when they took pride in themselves but it was their choice and they called when they should've folded.

It's so unnerving to see comments like this. If he was incompetent what does that make the rest of us? We won only after almost six years and not thanks to any superior skill or tactics, but only because of sheer numbers and materiel. The surviving NSDAP leadership was tested for intelligence at the Nuremberg trials and all scored exceptionally well. They also agreed Hitler was far above their level. His competency is why our victory was so costly. His spontaneous decisions in the eastern front specifically frustrated the Soviet espionage efforts and his top soldier had this to say: As a former combatant on the Eastern Front I would like to make an observation: Hitler is often criticized for his stubbornness, refus- ing to order any sort of “elastic withdrawal,” as his generals had been proposing since December 1941. Hitler certainly made grave errors in his appraisal of the war situation — but primarily because he was badly informed. Almost all generals commanding divisions and commanders of corps at the front had the bad habit of understating their losses when reporting them to “above.” Their reports were further “doctored” when they reached the army and then the army group. I would like to cite one example: In the summer of 1944 my friend Hans Ulrich Rudel, our best Stuka pilot (with 2,700 combat missions), was received by Hitler and subsequently by Göring, who was under express orders from Hitler to ban him from further flying. Oberst Rudel came straight from the Eastern Front. Before Göring told him of Hitler’s decision (which Rudel disregarded, by the way), he let him in on some “big news”: “We have prepared a major offensive in your sector which will be supported by 300 tanks. Leading the attack will be the 14th Divi- sion with 60 panzers...” However Rudel had spoken with the commanding general of the 14th Division the day before. The general confessed to him that he did not have a single operational panzer. When Göring heard this he couldn't believe it and telephoned the front. He found that what the Oberst had told him was true, and that instead of the 300 tanks they had allowed for, they could commit 40 at best. This “major offensive” was called off. I myself witnessed a similar scene at Fuhrer Headquarters in Sep- tember 1944. For three days I had to be present for briefings, the so- called “noon situation” and “evening situation” (10 P.M.), in order to gain an exact picture of the situation on the Eastern Front. As always the officers of the general staff had prepared a map and drawn in the divisions available in the southeast. During the first two days of my stay I was able to observe Hitler at his “war game” and saw how he carefully considered all the information he was given. If a sector of the front was involved that did not affect several of the officers present, these withdrew to the ante-room and waited. On the first day I was thus an involuntary witness to a discussion be- tween two officers who wore the red stripes of the general staff on their trousers. “You know,” said one of the officers, “that of the three divisions in the east of Hungary two are only as strong as battalions and the third would have difficulty sending two battalions to the front. It won't do!...” “That surely won’t do,” observed the other, “and it’s not our fault!” I walked away so as not to have to hear any more. When, on the third day, Hitler asked exact and increasingly more uncomfortable questions about these three phantom divisions, it be- came clear to him that he had been deceived. “That means then,” he shouted, “that the orders I gave the day before yesterday were based on the existence of these divisions. And now I hear that these divisions no longer exist! At the front they must think that my orders are completely crazy. Why am I being lied to here, gentlemen? Why? I want to be told the truth! The lives of brave soldiers are at stake!” Hitler did not chew the carpet and nor did he climb the drapes. Only in his voice was there indignation and desperation. In any case it is certain that if he had ordered all the retreats recommended by his generals, there would be no Germany today and the Soviet Army would have occupied all of Europe. The German soldier felt betrayed since July 20, 1944, We have seen, and will yet see, to what degree he was. In the west the Wehr- macht had lost its offensive spirit by March 1945, and the terrible sight of our wrecked cities certainly did not encourage the retreating troops. Our workers did not lose their courage to the end; in the Ruhr and Silesia the enemy found the workers at their workplaces. No one can deny that the German people fought bravely for five years against the mightiest nations in the world.

Also, some version could have points in the map, telling what specifically is happening there. As is already said, this concept has great promise for historical info in an entertaining format. Especially also the audio is giving us so much atmoshpere and tension, making learning and understanding history as a narrative that much more compelling.

@Clip Even more - Soviets provoked civil wars in Hungary and Bayern in 1918. So we have at least seven conflicts ignited only during Lenin's era. Before 1939 we had three more wars with China, two with Japan, one of them in Korea. And a few anti-Soviet uprisings, mainly in collectivisation era. Soviets were preparing to a major invasion in Europe and many historicians proved this multiple times. Even the whole industrialism was concentrated mainly in arms industry. That's why Germans invaded the USSR. This was even their casus belli. Soviets did not really want to declare war on the UK and France, that is why they waited two weeks with invasion in Poland in 1939.

11:00 shows D-Day was not necessary to win the war, it shortened the war but the Soviets had the victory in the bag - 6.7M against 2.4M and advancing at a great clip. Churchill was smart - he spared his men, didn't launch his assault earlier because he would have sustained a great many casualties. Instead he bided his time, waiting for the Soviets to drive the Germans further to the West, and then he attacked the already weakened and defeated enemy, to cement his "role" in the victory and to keep the Soviets in check in case they decided to turn to the dark side and keep the liberated lands to themselves,.
