turn against German which was already in war with Great Britain. Adolf Hitler had a strong army concentrated on both fronts of the war. The non-aggression pact treaty was meant for dealing with the Soviet Union just for about six months due to the strong ammunition possessed by the German troops ( Edele 94) . The Soviets retreated by deploying inexhaustible troops which prolonged the war for more than three years. Since Hitler, though he would defeat the Soviets within the shortest time possible, the war took long diverting the concentration of German troops in the western front. The Soviets troops played a significant role in weakening the German troops. The Soviets proved the German troops inferior after killing most of them and outdoing their plan to invade the Soviets completely.

German troops could have captured Moscow by early 1941 before the winter sets as Stalin could have requested terms on armistice favorable to the Germans such as occupying the Caucasus region which s rich in oil. Hitler did not predict the harsh climatic conditions during the winter where most of its troops died during the 1941- 1942 winter due to frostbite ( Edele 97) .

Despite Russia having a strong, they could not intervene between the German battles with the allies ( Walters 127) . That gave German an upper hand in winning the war against the allies. The weak territories such as Poland had already been weakened and occupied by the German troops. By the year 1940, German troops were the most powerful in the world as they conquered Denmark and Norway, Belgium, Netherlands, and France. They had also driven the British military from continental Europe. The German troops had also overpowered Greece and Yugoslavia.
