Hi everyone, I'm sorry for the very long wait in uploads, however, hopefully you will understand why, as it has taken me almost a year to research and produce this video.

On September 1st, 1939, Germany declares war on Poland and throws the world into the largest conflict humanity has ever seen. I have done my best to do accurate borders, encirclements and army sizes.

If you see any mistakes or inaccuraices, or if you simply just have suggestions, then let me kno in the comments and I will include them in my next video!

Besides, sit back and relax, I hope that you enjoy the video!

This new concept has lots of potential. It gives more insight on how powerful countries actually were. Usually, you only have country sizes, which can easily be deceptive. Of course, there’s still a lot more to it than that.

@Николай Сон Correction: the EU did not exist at the time. Instead, there was the Axis. Other than that, I suppose you're right. The USSR did win the war without needing much external help.

@Mr. Spartan Keyser Söze Macbeth Junior that isn't 100% true, as Armee Norwegen and Gebirgskorps Norwegen (i believe they were part of said army) fought in Finland during the war an example is in Operation Platinum Fox as well as Silver Fox, where they tried and failed to take the port of Murmansk

@Mr. Spartan Keyser Söze Macbeth Junior That's true, but the Finns attacked on June 22nd together with Germany. Maybe it was better for them if they were neutral.
Mr. Spartan Keyser Söze Macbeth Junior
@M Z I think the Finns were shown separately since they could hardly be called a part of axis when they didn't really get any support from Germany outside of a few planes. I admit that I'm very biased about this since I'm Finnish myself.

Seeing the ebb and flow, the victories, defeats, retreats, halting, stalemate, counter offensive, and seeing the changing of territory really shows how bleak the war started and how it shifted towards the favor of the Allie’s. Seeing how thin Germany was stretched, it’s no surprise they lost

Your quite right this video does indeed show alot & provides a much greater perspective of the scale of things, but in regards to Germany's defeat it gets a little more complex than what a video like this can depict, things like strategy, tactics, resources, technology, manpower, logistics, politics, etc. Germany throughout the war fielded a very effective war machine that used many new combat doctrines & later more advanced technology unseen before but as the war progressed, specifically with the USSR they began to face an enemy that in time began to hugely outnumber them from a scale of 4: 1. This issue in combination with the fact Germany was running short on crucial resources, particularly oil, while not immediately apparent but in the end ultimately sealed their fate, the introduction of the Western allies only just accelarated their defeat because the truth is even before D-Day Germany was already on the retreat & wasn't capable of conducting major offensives anymore, Their last one in the east was the Kursk offensive in 43 which was ultimately a huge disaster they lost way too many forces just right after their catastrophy in Stalingrad, Their last offensive was the Ardenne Offensive in Dec 1944 & in all truthfulness was just a last ditch effort to regain some kind of advantage/initiative over the Western Allies which ultimately came to nothing. But in my opinion what caused ultimate defeat for Germany was ironically what caused the war in the first place, it was their ideology. Their ideology & their firm belief in it is what I believe ultimately caused Germany to engage in conflicts that despite their particular advantages were too risky, extremely foolish, & realistically had no hope of succeding but chose to do it anyway because of the firm belief in Endsieg(Final Victory) which only proved to prolong their suffering & ultimate defeat not save them from it.

Wow. Insane. This is fantastic. 3 of my great- grandfathers fought in WW2. My American side (I have a Russian side of the family) great-grandfathers were a cook and a machine-gunner and bomb dropped on the back of the plane. My Russian great-grandfather fought at Stalingrad. Miraculously, all three survived. In their honor, I learned about WW2. Including watching this video.

It’s terrifying to see how quickly Germany took the majority of Europe. Also, if the Soviets had capitulated (unlikely since they had backup plans if Moscow fell) the the war likely would have been lost. The US were hesitant to get involved and the British simply didn’t have the scale to defend themselves and the oil fields from the power of the Axis, if they had lost either the Axis would have been insurmountable.
ManFrost 6 gün önce
@Ixsalit It's funny to read. The best German units fought on the eastern front, quantitatively and qualitatively there were always more of them. Reservists and boys stood on defense against the Western allies. On average, Western assistance covered 10 percent of those produced in the USSR, not quite a decisive contribution.

@Xeno The Soviet union wouldnt have won without the allies. The sheer amounts of steel, food, trucks, valuable information from allied intelligence agency, the installing of radios in tanks, and many more, without all of that they would have lost.

It's crazy how quickly the germans invaded the western front! It barely lasts 17 seconds (from 1:37 to 1:54), which is merely 2% of the entire video's length. Also it's nice to have included North Africa on the map. The allies were not attacking on the western front because they were already busy reclaiming their colonies down there, crushing the German forces at the South of the USSR, which was in trouble due to Operation Barbarossa. Eventually that allowed them to reach Italy through the Mediterranean sea and take back the west.

The Operation Barbarossa section gives me chills every time. The music, the gigantic numbers, hundreds upon hundreds of thousands encircled. 80% of men born in the USSR in 1922 would be dead by the war's end, and those three months reflect it wholesale. The air raid sirens and general chaos of the music really drive home how barbaric it was.

However, they were pretty brutal in most if not all the places they invaded. It is, after all, an invasion. They are there to conquer and not really to make friends.)

If this can be done so precisely (as WW2 is the most well documented event in all of history) I would like to see one of these videos done like this on the locations and of the people that shant be named, during the events that shant be named; The alleged events that seem to run so parallel to WW2, as it where to the point that the two are absolutely inseparable. There must be enough proof to pull it off; surly there is, I've seen a picture of a pile of shoes, at school, and been reminded literally every single day since. Would be great if it were to start well betimes. That would be wise. Looking around at the world and our nations today - we can at least be thankful we aren't speaking German..

Once Operation Barbarossa failed in late 1941, the writing was on the wall and the war was basically lost for Nazi Germany. The entire German strategy depended on a rapid victory (3 months or so). Given the vast size and logistical issues, there was no way Nazi Germany could have won a protracted war of attrition against the USSR.

Great video but just two issues that caught my attention - North Afrika numbers for the British are waaaay too low in 41. it seems it compared overall Axis strength vs only frontline troops for the Allies. And for Barbarossa again it seems to plot all Axis forced planned to be used for the East vs only immediately used Soviet forces. That is of course understandable but both times create the impression that the Axis were vastly outnumbering the British and Soviets but that wasnt the case. (In the desert at least not after operation compass)

Always comparing the years and calculating how old my grandfather was back then and what I did at that age. I am lucky to be alive, because he, despite beeing German, never had to see any combat action. He was just serving wine to the officers while beeing in Italy and then he tricked the docot into believing he has heart issues (he drank huge loads of coffee before examination).

The move towards the caucasus seems to have been the move that turned the war around. But even so in the long run it's very unlikey Hitler could have captured and held Moscow for a longer period of time.

i research WW2 almost for almost half of my life and i still think it's unbelievable the success of Germany at the first half. it's not like past wars that fight for several years to gain a little land. BOOM-your land is ours-BOOM-your land is ours and so on.
thehazard1 6 gün önce
@D M I mean this can be applies to the second half of the war too. The allies vastly outnumbered everything the axis had. Like in every single category. So how is the war a success from the allies side? The French had a very strong army with great weapons and tanks, its just their strategy that failed them terribly. All the other countries they invaded besides the soviet union and poland, were simply because they were either forced to do it as a consequence of a war declaration, strategically, or because it made an attack easier. Dont forget, germany never wanted to go to war with the west. They were basically tricked into the war, with the secret guarantee on poland by the british.
D M 6 gün önce
Most of those nations were just their much smaller and weaker neighbours. Norway, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands... Ofcourse Germany easily rolled over them... The only real succes they had in my opinion was France... But that was more because of France's weaknesses at the time.

@Edgelord Priestess Of Waifustan Plenty of manpower? That wasnt the advantage. Industry? The soviet unions tank production exceeded everyone. But natural ressources was the biggest disadvantage, together with the vast country size difference, and manpower. In this video it seems like the Red army is constantly smaller, which is true, but that is because they got defeated so fast, and sent in reinforcements as fast. But there were way more soldiers on the soviets side in 1941 (ofc later too, but that can be seen in the number of the standing army). The standing army was just smaller because of the losses.

to be fair germany spent 10 years on their technology and their artillery was 10 times better, better guns, better planes, they had the upper advantage, hitler just played his cards stupidly fighting his war on two fronts on opposite sides of his country, fighting two lions with one stick eventually one’s going to bite you in the ass and that’s what ended up happening
TheDGP17 29 gün önce
A great exercise, congrats, but you should check your figures: for France, the Soviets and the Germans, it seems to be the number of effectively fighting soldiers (and not the total number of men, which is right, since only part of all men did fight at the same time, each army needs reserves, logistic, administration etc.). The same for Allied forces in North Africa, then Italy. But the Allied forces in France since June 1944 seem completely oversized: in total, when the South of France allied forces join the main North forces coming from Normandie, Allied forces in the West never had more than 80 complete divisions, i.e., with a systematic reinforcement, maximum 1,2 millions soldiers, certainly less. How do you reach the 2m, then 2,5... and even 4m at the very end!?

The absolute scale of research done for this video is amazing. The animation quality is really clean and with this new addition of showing the army sizes, something previous everyday videos have not done, I can definitely see this becoming the main video people go to for representing world war 2 from the map perspective. I'm curious as to how you animated all the movements, It would be awesome to find out for future map videos that I or other people may create. Keep it up bro.

Some major decisions contributed to the outcome of the war, on this maps you can see the effects. Like changing from bombing airfields to terror bombing cities in the UK, that made the nazi's loose the air war over the UK. When invading Russia, spreading out too thin, focussing on land in stead of objectives ( like moscow). Fighting a war on several fronts at the same time. The effect of the USA joining the war. Breaking the Emigma code also had a major contribution to the outcome of battles i think even in the USSR. like a major tank battle when the weather was bad and the range advantage the nazi's had had little effect. On this video you can also clearly see the disarerous effect of not allowing a tactical withdraw for the nazi forces in the east. And the slow response after the inicial landing in normandy by the allies. What is interesting to see it also the uprising in Yugulavia and how quickly the number or soviet troops rose. Germany had around 80 million people, Russia / the USSR at that time 200 million, Russia recruited a lot of people, while a lot of german soldiers where either fighting or lost elsewhere or occupied in other countries like france/ greece / italy. Also a rather large number was lost in africa, while there was not so much to gain over there.

This is an appeal to our friends in US and UK, who say that the second front had a decisive contribution to the victory. The Allies landed in Normandy when the war was practically won, just to prevent Europe from becoming completely communist.

@gger gger japan had a non-agression pact with soviet union, tokyo couldn't fight with china that had the whole japanese army on the asian front, and soviet union at the same time, japanese army, that fought only in warm chinese climat, wouldn't do nothing in cold siberia and far east of russia, also, their provocation on the japan-mongolian border wasn't successful. that's why japan didn't attack the soviet union.

You are not right. Don't forget about Japan and the US, without the US if Japan attacked USSR from the east it would be very difficult to fight at the same time with Germany and Japan, you also forgot about Africa, where British solders freed a lot of countries there and blocked OIL and other resourses there so Germany could not get them for its war machine, approximately 20% of german tanks, cars aircrafts could not be at fights because Germany didn't have enough oil, since 1943 year, also Brits with Americans destroyed almost the whole Hamburg where they had a lot of factories and also continued to bomb germany and destroyed during the war many oil storages in Germany, it all helpet a lot beside their land lease, also I noticed Russians never think about where were all those battles at the sea? Germany had a good fleet and again Brits mostly had foughts there. And from the other side Brits and Americans wouldn't win without USSR. Not USSR won the war, Not Brits and not Americans alone, the war was won by all of us.

@Clip Even more - Soviets provoked civil wars in Hungary and Bayern in 1918. So we have at least seven conflicts ignited only during Lenin's era. Before 1939 we had three more wars with China, two with Japan, one of them in Korea. And a few anti-Soviet uprisings, mainly in collectivisation era. Soviets were preparing to a major invasion in Europe and many historicians proved this multiple times. Even the whole industrialism was concentrated mainly in arms industry. That's why Germans invaded the USSR. This was even their casus belli. Soviets did not really want to declare war on the UK and France, that is why they waited two weeks with invasion in Poland in 1939.
