Operation Barbarossa caused a few problems for the Germans. Here are some examples of them;

  • The axis had 4 Million troops with 4,300 Tanks whilst the USSR had 5.5 Million Troops and 25,700 tanks.
  • Germany had to try to maintain a huge front of a size of 1,800 Miles.
  • By the end of the Battle of Kiev, Germany ran out of reserves and that was what they needed.
