Season 142 - Day 14 of 14
World War II
After the failure to knock the USSR out of the war during Operation Barbarossa, the Germans realised they were now in a war of attrition.
Because of that the German Armed Forces’ plan for the 1942 strategic summer offensive in southern Russia was to capture the oil fields of Baku, Azerbaijan to re-supply their low fuel stock.
What is the name given to this operation that took place between 28 June and 24 November, 1942?
It consisted of a two-pronged attack, one from the Axis right flank against the oil fields of Baku, known as Operation Edelweiss, and one from the left flank in the direction of Stalingrad along the Don River, known as Operation Fischreiher.
