About ww2clash

THE QUEST
My goal is to provide to the military history enthusiast and researcher insightful articles on Operation Barbarossa. The intention is to motivate many "Aha! moments" in the reader by virtue of crafting a careful explanation of the causes that triggered the outcomes. 
This explanation is supported by the extensive use of hard data from recognized sources, color diagrams to explain complex ideas, and an analysis written impartially thanks to a methodological approach that helps to prevent bias or prejudice.
The reader will be able to place himself in the shoes of decision-makers to understand why decisions were made and what could have been done to change history.

Many writers have spent tons of ink recording the momentous events surrounding the Russo-German war and the Barbarossa onslaught. I am very familiar with the mainstream theories after studying them for over three decades, but more than 75 years after the events happened, I still find most of them unconvincing and shallow. For readers that dig into the subject matter and ask deeper questions, there remains this uneasy feeling of having learned half-truths. 

My purpose with this webpage (and eventually a book) is to answer three major questions that are vital to the understanding of this historical event:

• Why was the war fought at all?
• Why did the 1941 invasion fail?
• Can we make a convincing case that Germany could have won or at least not lost?

It is difficult to arrive at sound, factual, and logical beliefs. We humans fall easily into biased analyses and it takes significant effort to realize that we tend to discard evidence that does not match our preconceived views. Social scientists (i.e. Michael Gazzaniga, and Brendan Nyhan) are aware of this flaw and they have documented it extensively. 

The research and analysis that you will find on my webpage eschew any preconceived ideas and prejudice using a scientific methodology applied to history to arrive at beliefs that have solid support.

I have been updating my webpage with first-class material for over two years and I realize that the magnitude of the project is such that I need your support to complete the topics that still require an answer or explanation. My first objective is to complete several topics that are outlined on the webpage and eventually to expand the visuals and to create short videos for each topic to reach more people.

I would like to invite you to take a look at my webpage and if you like what you see, please consider becoming a supporter.

I am happy to share some of the feedback I have received from readers:

  • "I really enjoyed your site" (MP, 10/22/2020)
  • "By the way ... FANTASTIC research!" (CB, 7/15/2020)
  • "I love your website, excellent data." (DK, 12/12/2019)

Thank you for your consideration!
