The Axis had overrun much of the western Soviet Union In 1942. And going off the available evidence, it appears that their economy was on the brink of collapse.

ABOUT TIK

History isn’t as boring as some people think, and my goal is to get people talking about it. I also want to dispel the myths and distortions that ruin our perception of the past by asking a simple question - “But is this really the case?”. I have a 2:1 Degree in History and a passion for early 20th Century conflicts (mainly WW2). I’m therefore approaching this like I would an academic essay. Lots of sources, quotes, references and so on. Only the truth will do.

This video is discussing events or concepts that are academic, educational and historical in nature. This video is for..

There was a huge debate between historians regarding whether Hitler was a Strong or Weak dictator. The Intentionalist historians said his dictatorship was strong, and that he gave orders that the divided and weak State carried out. And the Structuralist/Functionalist historians said that he was a weak dictator, and that the divided State structure was what actually drove the events that we saw happen during the Third Reich. Today, we're going to discuss this and see how this debate was 'solved', and how it might be time to dig it up again...

I'm not a Fascist or anything similar, nor am I promoting said ideologies. This video is discussing events or concepts that are academic, educational and historical in nature. This video is for informational purposes and was created so we may better understand the past and learn from the mistakes others have made.

Today's question comes from Guy Andrews - Hi Tik, in regards to the Nazi State and the inner-workings of the state itself, would you regard yourself as being an 'intentationalist' or a 'structuralist' in the historical debate?

The Soviet Union was in deep trouble during the Battle of Stalingrad Campaign. Their economy was on the brink of collapse, with food rations at starvation levels. On the 28th of July 1942, Stalin implements his infamous Order 227, which is welcomed by the troops fighting at the Great Bend of the Don River. Paulus's 6th Army manages to consolidate its positions, but can it prevent Group Zhuravlev from breaking out of its pocket? Let's find out.

Season 1 of this series is over! I will now take a break from releasing Stalingrad videos to prepare for Season 2. But other WW2 related videos will still be coming out EVERY Monday at 5pm GMT (depending on season, check for British Summer Time) so be sure to come back.

The script for this video was 6,057 words.

We have Wehraboos reviewing books on Amazon and mass down-voting anything which disagrees with their Weltanschauung (world view). They genuinely believe that the Wehrmacht was "clean" and was the greatest fighting force ever in world history. Well, they're wrong.

History Romancers are a big issue, so today I tackle some of them. Romancers are people who have a fantastical or romantic view of certain periods of history. They either worship the Wehrmacht (Wehraboos), excuse the crimes of Socialism (Marxist Socialists or National Socialists), or even deny that certain historical events took place (Denialists). Their ignorance, dismissal or distortion of evidence, logical fallacies and downright hostility to the truth leads them to false conclusions and to the political extreme. Let's give them a history lesson. #wehraboos #Romancers

NOTE: Due to technical issues related to Bandicam, I had to use Sony Vegas Pro to edit this video, and Vegas has a massive issue with text scrolling in videos as I discovered to my horror... So I was unable to put Patron names in this video. This is a one-off issue, so your names will appear in future videos.

The REAL Reason why ..

The Battle of Stalingrad was the largest land battle in World War II. It was also the longest - an epic seven month campaign lasting from the 21st of July 1942 to the 2nd of February 1943. The fighting for the city has become infamous for its intensity, yet many have forgotten that the battle started outside of the city in July 1942 as Fall Blau (Case Blue) was reaching its zenith. By the 25th of July 1942, Paulus's 6th Army had broken through the 62nd Army's lines and had reached the Don Bend near Kalach. Under Stalin's watchful eye, Moskalenko's 1st Tank Army and Kriuchenkin’s 4th Tank Army were ordered to mount a counterattack in order to destroy Wietersheim’s 14th Panzer Corps. Will the Soviet tank armies be able to complete this task? Let's find out.

The script for this video was 5,363 words.

Videos EVERY Monday at 5pm GMT (depending on season, check for British Summer Time).

The first Season of this series will be three episodes (including this one), with the final video scheduled to release on the 4th of November 2019. After Season 1 I will then break from releasing Stalingrad videos to prepare for Season 2.

Today we talk about Franco and Spain during the WW2 era, specifically looking into the reasons why Spain stayed out of WW2, their active neutrality (supporting the Axis side), and talking about the Blue Division.

Many people do not know the difference between the Public and Private Sectors of Society. This is why oxymoronic terms like "State Capitalism" exist. Well, starting in Ancient Greece and Rome and moving forwards in time, we will show what the Public Sector and Private Sectors of the economy are, how they're defined, and explain what both Capitalism and Socialism are and why they are that as well. These are the actual historic definitions and meanings backed up by the sources listed in the pinned comment, at the beginning of the video, and references will be included at the bottom of the screen.

The script for this history video was 12,523 words. And yes, this is a history video. I am neither National Socialist, Fascist, Marxist Socialist or anything else like that. And as you can tell if you watch this video in full, I am absolutely NOT promoting any of these evil ideologies in the slightest.

The Red Army Air Force (VVS) was totally unprepared to resist the largest land invasion force in history. When Operation Barbarossa launched on the 22nd of June 1941, many of the Soviet planes were destroyed on their airfields, and those that get up into the air had severe disadvantages against the Luftwaffe. In this video, we'll explore some of the reasons why.

I'm neither defending nor praising either the Soviet Union or the Third Reich in this video; merely explaining the history and the perceptions some have on the events of the past does not mean I support what happened. This video is discussing events or concepts that are academic, educational and historical in nature.

The Courland Pocket formed in late 1944 as Army Group North attempted to retreat from the Leningrad Region and the Baltic States. The Soviet Red Army trapped them in Latvia and lay siege to them until the end of the war. This documentary video uses maps and unit animations to detail the events on the operational level - because that's what BATTLESTORM is all about. Who's to blame for the way this battle turns out? Let's find out!

This is all the Courland videos placed into one complete video. Good luck to all of you who marathon this, and be sure to boast about that in the comment section below!

History lies in the heart of the debate. And the debate about the Soviet treatment of German POWs continues long after World War II ended. The numbers are up for debate. The percentages are up for debate. But the fact remains that German prisoners didn't have it as bad as Soviet prisoners in WW2, as I showed in my other video https://youtu.be/OeRR100incE

Also, yes, one of the quotes was covered by one of the book covers. Sorry about that.

History isn’t as boring as some people think, and my goal is to get people talking about it. I also want to dispel the myths and distortions that ruin our perception of the past by asking a simple question - “But is this really the case?”. I have a 2:1 Degree in History and a passion for early 20th Century conflicts (mainly WW2). I’m therefore approaching this like I would an academic essay.

Marxist-Socialist Günter Reimann was hiding in Germany in the 1930s. He decided to write and publish a book about the Third Reich's economy in 1939. You can get this book (a primary source document) online as a free PDF, or purchase it on Amazon etc. In this video I discuss the document and see where it goes right and wrong, and explain the nature of Hitler's 'Vampire Economy'.

Two Questions today - 1. TinyGayPirate 04:22 asked: Could you talk a little bit about polish resistance of Armia Krajowa (Home Army) in occupied Poland and did polish resistance have any effect on german logistics at eastern front? And 2. Steve Switzer 40:43 (best to watch the full thing, but especially from 31:30) asked: Do you think Stalin deliberately held back from helping the Home army in Warsaw? The second question is a huge question which I'm not possibly going to be able to cover fully in one video, but I thought I'd give some thoughts on it today. I am sympathetic to the Polish cause, and think Stalin was evil, but that doesn't mean that the Home Army and the Government-in-Exile didn't drop the ball on this one.

Paul asked a great question - Do I consider myself a amateur historian, or a proper one? This then led me to ask a broader question - can YouTubers EVER be 'proper' historians? The theory allows it, but I'm not so sure...

When you have a historical narrative which contradicts itself, that's a sign that you've got a distortion of history. In this video, we're going to go almost line by line through three pages of the book: "Cambridge History of the Second World War" as it discusses the German economy in WW2, to see how it holds up. Spoiler alert - it doesn't.

Somewhere near 3.3 million Soviet Prisoners of Wars were captured by the Germans in 1941. And around 5.7 million total Soviet POWs were captured in the war against the Third Reich. Many commissars were also captured, which wasn't good, since the Wehrmacht had issued the infamous 'Commissar Order' in order to deal with them. So what was their fate? How did the Germans treat them? This video will tell you.

It appears that Stalin may have sought a separate peace with Hitler in WW2. Thank you to David E Dyrud for your question! Sadly, I've only really found one source which directly addresses this question, so if you know of any others that talk about this, please let me know so I can do a follow-up. Some of my books hint at peace-negotiations happening in 1944, but they are vague. To clarify a point raised in the video, I don't have evidence of negotiations before Stalingrad, but (as a bit of conjecture) I suspect that if there were negotiations in 1942-43, and possibly in 1944, then there's no reason to assume there wasn't any in 1941 or early 1942. Evidence may exist out there... so I'm certainly not ruling it out until it's confirmed one way or another.

With World War 2 drawing to a close, Axis forces trapped in the Courland Pocket had only one option: surrender. But that question remains - why didn't they evacuate Courland? Was it really "Madman Hitler's" fault, or is there more to it than that? Let's find out...

This video is the last in the series. I will be creating an all-in-one video of this series in a few weeks where I correct some of the minor errors, but otherwise that is it. The next series will be Stalingrad...

Denying the Holocaust is impossible. Holocaust Denialism is fundamentally flawed not only because it denies the historical reality, but because it contradicts itself. In this video, I will explain how to defeat the ideological motivations behind Holocaust Denialism, severely weakening the arguments against an undeniable event.

This video will no doubt by targeted by Nazis, inter-Nazis and Holocaust denialists. Ignore them. The Holocaust happened, the Holodomor happened, and their ideologies are immoral.
