The Rest Is History

182. Operation Barbarossa

The Rest Is History

What military parallels does Putin's invasion of Ukraine have with Hitler's attempt to invade the Soviet Union?


On today's pod Tom and Dominic are joined by historian - and brother of Tom - James Holland to discuss Operation Barbarossa and the Nazi invasion of 1941, whether it was doomed to fail, and the role it played in the escalation of the Holocaust.
