8:32 am
also in casualties and michael jones's new book tells the story of the reds all major in the second world war dr james thank you for talking to r.t. today now let's start from the beginning of operation barbarossa why did hitler decide to invade the look always wanted to invade the soviet union the reason he gave out was that the soviet union would actually attack germany i think the evidence for that in nineteen forty one and slights underneath that justification to his military were two main factors the first was hitler's hatred of communism. and that was what he really put out your that it was a crusade against bolshevism bolshevism was a menace that needed to be destroyed but underneath the real truth about this war was race hatred and if one reads my. book it's clear that he always
8:33 am
wanted to carve out living space. and youth experience of the people he regarded as racially inferior and when he announced operation that he told himself that it was a war of annihilation and he he he thought in terms of a war of survival. it was going to be the survival of the fittest and it didn't take i'm starting to realize the consequences of that that there would be horrific losses. and that was indeed what happened how unexpected was the invasion i mean hitler and stalin had signs the molotov ribbentrop pact making them allies on. the allies of course but allies nonetheless they were allies and the soviet union was caught by surprise and this was stalin's great. stalin was not naive but he thought that germany would not attack in nineteen forty one he thought would come later and he believed that he could use this product to develop the soviet union's
8:34 am
and sphere of influence and at the same time. the ride on me i'm transfer industry is going to be on your own mountains but in fact he got it very very badly wrong and of course the red army was cool deeply unprepared in nine hundred forty one your book is about the sort of human story behind the how did it develop militarily during the conflicts at the beginning of nine hundred forty one the red army was hunted. by the autumn of one thousand four hundred one of the last between two and three million tons of killed in this thing and captured i think few are the arm is in the world to sustain that level of punishment and still carried on fighting and it was not madness from. its high come on to believe at that point the soviet union caved and what was it that kept the red army fighting that's the sixty four thousand dollar question an extraordinary mix of. brutal leadership tough
8:35 am
leadership from stalin but it was necessary to be tough and new autum of nineteen forty one and stalin result in moscow would be to fund it and they would keep fighting but it was also true to some profound truth to say that the red army recovered from the initial crisis realized it was a battle for survival and what was at stake was not just a communist system but russia as a country and the soviet union i was in a boardroom and without and it really did become a part share of it war it was an unusual time in that developed quite a lot. during a time of calm states what do you think explains the marked difference in its effectiveness from say nine hundred forty one to for example the stalling got in which it secured a stunning victory one of course that technical reasons to the red army in the midst of war is is retraining me. it's the worst possible time to do it but they
8:36 am
are doing it and to give them credit this begins to make a difference they transfer their industry as they get them up and running and certainly by the end astonishing that better trained and better equipped but the germans still from there to both and i believe there to fight was just the science of war the technical side germany could very well have won at either a nine hundred forty run and i'm sure for you to put it with love it was this extraordinary determination to carry on fighting that the germans underestimated to hit once the short sharp shock and quick campaign was crucial but it didn't work out like the told that he thought it would all be over and he was not alone and off to the war the german generals just nonsense we were against it but at the time many of them agreed with hitler they thought he was a very quickly in three months and of course we won't make the same mistake there's no cody and we won't have a winter war because we want to do with them they were carried away by their own
8:37 am
successes their previous successes blitzkrieg lightning war and they believe that if they hum of the road from here it will be. that they are underestimated the red army and the underestimate of the soviet union i was that a turning point or was it just the concepts of the winter in the weather they just left the pipe for well the germans blame the weather. again and you could just prop seen that one coming but they were caught by surprise and they said the weather rolled them that in five i think the weather was part of the. and the other part that was much harder for them to acknowledge was that an army of the same to feed to demoralize them last in a matter of weeks and five days turned itself around and started fighting and resisting with stupendous power and the first turning point was outside moscow the germans expected to take the conflict so they were later than they thought but they
8:38 am
still thought that would on the war and it was the strength and determination of resistance that caught them by surprise how does a campaign hit was repeatedly. taking western russia would in fact be more of a drain on germany's economic resources than it would be beneficial why did he go ahead with the campaign anyway. was motivated by his own sons of leadership he believed he had a mission and almost divine mission a very dark divinity. to lead his people to great success and it was this mission that he was going to follow on on a fundamental level he was never really going to listen to advise that he perceived that the soviet union was the enemy and he also believed its resources could be plundered and used for a great teacher i me at the end of the day he was going to follow. what what were
8:39 am
the consequences of the ultimate failure of operation. well it destroyed the german army it destroyed it throughout the war the majority of its resources were concentrated on the front and even off to d.-day. in freeport it was this division of its military divisions were fighting on the eastern front so it was where the biggest battles took place because casualties took place under. the rug and it's just more casualties we could do with replace those casualties. so it became a war of attrition and also. lee it was and it could be germany that would lose that war and it was this dreaded phrase that war on two fronts wasn't. well hitler believed that a war on two fronts could work if you won the war against the soviet union quickly and of course if anyone quickly and that could well being the case but once the war
8:40 am
started dragging on into nineteen forty two nineteen forty three germany was worst and that marked which had behaved with a deal of decorum on the western front it's behaved in a completely different way in the east didn't it what do you put that down well part of the war the german claimed it was fighting a clean war and it was. the the units behind the army and it was the us that were doing all the unpleasant stuff that was i'm not sure that some soldiers on the eastern front would decently behave decently but many were infected by the race proper conduct towards the smallest was accused and the german army i participate in atrocitus atrocities against the jews against the russian civilian population and we knew they were going on. just a thought and i mean the justification was we were fighting a brutal war of survival. but war with darker than any other war in
8:41 am
the twentieth century and indeed possibly in human history the role played by the union is vastly underappreciated in the west why is. one part it's the legacy of the cold war surprisingly history is normally written they say by the victors but our view of this part of our history is very strongly by the germans because the german view became incorporated into the historical faith thinking in the in with a call. world so there was an underestimation or an unwillingness to recognize what the soviet union and to fully and i think the cold war in part was the reason for that but i think the other reason is the scale is so vast i mean we're talking about twenty seven million and times the civilian and military casualties i think
8:42 am
the other reason is simply it's so big the people the struggle to really comprehend one of the things i wanted to do in my book is to make that story comprehensible account and to give it a human voice so that people can relate so rather than just being a mass of rather overwhelming statistics that's michael james thank you very much thank you. today children play war in the old case to me. nine hundred forty one these walls when the first barrier from another troops on their way to moscow. the funders of breast cancers are dying one by one undersea
