Katz Maxim. “The Tragedy of 1942. History of WWII”.
January 1942 saw the Battle of Moscow conclude. In July, the Battle of Stalingrad began. These two wins are separated by six months of major failures and a string of tragedies that are rarely brought up in the WW2 conversation. This episode of our docuseries follows the buzz of the Red Army’s first win almost leading to an overall defeat. Besides, it documents the nation-wide adaptation to the new normal, with occupied provinces, evacuated factories, and mass defection.
