Program Notes

Operation Barbarossa was the code name for Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II. It was named after Frederick Barbarossa, the medieval Holy Roman Emperor. Begun on June 22, 1941, the invasion, the largest military operation in history in both manpower and casualties, was ultimately stymied by the fierce Russian winter and better prepared Siberian soldiers, and was called off in December.
