Axis Europe 1941


Axis Europe, 1941


“On the eve of the German invasion of the Soviet Union, the Germany-Italy axis bestrode most of western Europe by annexation, occupation, or alliance–from Norway and Finland in the north to Greece in the south and from Poland to France. Britain, the Soviets, a number of insurgent groups, and, finally, America, had before them the long struggle of conquering this Axis ‘fortress Europe'”.
