Perfect Storms: EPISODE 6

Hitler's Frozen Army

The Battle of Moscow in 1941 has been called the largest battle in the whole of human history. Seven million soldiers engaged in brutal warfare over three months, and the stakes could not be higher. If Hitler captures the city, he could win World War II. But two obstacles stand in his way: the tenacity of the Soviet Army and the harshness of a Russian winter. Discover how this Nazi attack was thwarted by heavy rains that transformed battlefields into swamps and sub-zero temperatures that literally stopped the German Army cold.
