After the Western Allies invaded Normandy, the Soviets, in step with the June 6 D day invasion of 1944, on the anniversary of both Operation Barbarossa and the French surrender, June 22, they began the offensive called Operation Bagration, which would finally take the Red Army to Berlin. The Soviets left occupation troops and advance guards so there would be no counterattacks. With the capital, much of Eastern Europe, and Hitler lost, the Germans decided to surrender.

by 1944, the Germans were pushed out of russia. the Germans were ill prepared for winter fighting, and got tied down into the wrong kind of war. they faced too many city fighting, where a war of attriciton suited the Russians much better. then they made poor choices like attack the Russians at krusk. the supply lines were far over stretched, and the dreaded panzers ran out of gas. but the real reason is the Russians changed their tactics, and forced the Germans to fight on their own terms, and won the war.

The Soviets finally had a victorious battle against the Nazis. This was a turning point in the Russian/Nazi war in the USSR. From then on the Soviets won the battles of Stalingrad, Kiev and the Eastern Front in European nations. The German Generals realized the war was lost at Stalingrad and their leader was terribly inadequate if not crazy.

When the Soviets marched through eastern Europe they occupied it and therefore it was communist.
