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.
Also in going to a massive movie premier on Thursday where I'll meet all the telagu movie industry people.
And I'm tollywood, not bollywood. Every major religion (5 or so) has its own hollywood type thing. Telagu has 70 million speakers in India, and its movie industry is actually the largest. Each state's movie industry is a little bit different. Mumbai is the most westernized, while the one I'm in is just absolute nonsense the entire time.
Goa is the one that has all the bad ass fight scenes.
