In June 22 1941 hitlers army invaded the Soviet Union. Stalin was shocked. He thought that Hitler wasn't an idiot to be fighting on two fronts. His officers and German detectors told them that it was going to happen. They even had the date correct. History states that Stalin had a nervous breakdown and refused to allow his soldiers to fire back. He went to be by himself for almost a week. What do you think the reason for his inactivity? Some historians believe that he acted like his idol Ivan the terrible. Waiting and lurking to see if any of his officers would take control. But perhaps he wanted to act like tsar Nickolas when Napoleon Bonaparte invaded the Soviet Union. That being to do nothing. To starve them out and let general January and general February to do its work. Any opinions on this?
