What happened in operation barbarossa?

The main causes of German failure were the underestimated capabilities of the Soviet Union and the fierce resistance of the Soviet Army, and planning of the war turned out to be faulty from the lack of coherent mutually supporting phased goals, to the hugely inadequate logistical scheme. The grave situation in which the beleaguered German army found itself towards the end of 1941 was due to the increasing strength of the Red Army, compounded by a number of factors which in the short run severely restricted the effectiveness of the German forces. Chief among these were their overstretched deployment, a serious transport crisis affecting supply and movement, extreme weather and the eroded strength of most divisions. The infantry deficit that appeared by 1 September 1941 was never made good. For the rest of the war in the Soviet Union, the Wehrmacht would be short of infantry and support services. Parallels have been drawn with Napoleon's invasion of Russia.
