Hitler launches ‘Fall Blau’ – a new attack on Russia

A German Panzer Division passes through a burning Russian village.

In the midst of this roar, the men are crossing the Tim with their little rafts in feverish haste. We are attacking on a broad front: many, many divisions are moving simultaneously across the Tim. Hundreds of thousands can now move again after the banishment of the winter, can move eastwards; we are so happy about it.
