June 22

Today's the anniversary of Operation Barbarossa in 1941.

Also, therefore, the anniversary of Operation Bagration in 1944, which culminated in the Red Army's pushing the Germans back to about where they'd started.

Oddly, neither anniversary came to mind last night, when I received a welcome Father's Day present of Axis & Allies. Which looks to be glorified Risk, but at least playable, compared to this for instance.
