Operation Barbarossa is upon us...<edit> Operation complete!

operation barbarossa failed because the invading team couldn't handle playing out in the elements where the defending team was trained and primed

 

if this is history repeating itself the saints will charge hard in the first half, stagnate in the third quarter, and then freeze, die, and implode for the final 15:00

Barbarossa didn't fail because of the elements. That was a factor, but they could have taken every russian city if they'd wanted to. Hitler was just obsessed with symbolic victories and let Moscow slip through his fingers. If he'd just taken Moscow and her factories when he had the chance the US would have never been able to invade.

End the war quickly and the weather never becomes a factor. Hell, just dig in and not attack fuging Kursk and they could have still fought off the piddling Americans.

A better historical comparison would be Napoleon in Russia. His entire military strategy was based around quickly maneuvering his artillery. He was unable to do so in the russian snow/thawing soil.

The same could be said for past few games as well as the next few games. Most important game is the upcoming one. Plain and simple

Does anyone else read plain and simple now and think it just sounds straight retarded??

Simple and plain my friend. Simple and plain

I'm a bit of a history buff and I'm impressed with your post. The only thing that isn't correct is Hitler wanted Stalingrad, not Moscow

If you use the term "rise up" then you've obviously never been to the crap-hole GA dome. I was with you until I read that part.
