reaction was concession (so Hitler can be pleased – food, oil, metal) Stalin wasn’t prepared for Operation Barbarossa – heading towards major cities (3 armies) Big ideological struggle – Hitler said that the Bolsheviks were almost as bad as the Jews Germans didn’t really like the Russians Stalin knew his regime would struggle if the USSR lost the war – was willing to do anything to win it – Germans didn’t have winter clothing but that’s b/c they thought the war would end sooner (Russians were used to it) Russians under Stalin started to push Germany back Threw all their resources in the Battle of the Buldge – December 1944 – Americans lost (but barely) Stalin’s dictatorship was essential to the outcome of WWII There was no official end to the war, but there were just lots of resignations (no treaty) 25 million civilian casualties; over 10% of the Russian population died; WWII – systematic extermination of races and religions – German soldiers were told to rape as much as they could…wtf – agriculture stopped – Great Britain was okay rationing started in GB after the war – lots of food production problems – American economy was booming – just what they needed to escape the depression work for everyone, even women In Europe, there were a lot of refugees – 4 million Germans who had to relocate

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
