Yes he did and he didn't take into account Russian winters. His

troops went into Russia unprepared to fight in winter or to fight

the Russians. There was hand to hand combat in places like

Stalingrad and the Russians took many Germans as POW's. His main

purpose for attacking Russia was for the oil. His massive war

machine was in need of more gas and oil supplies.
