Barbarossa Fast, Jun-Dec41 is dedicated to ...
A. The peoples of the former Soviet Union and of Poland who fought and won the biggest war front against Nazi evil.
B. The Russian people who lived in the path of the Nazi war machine and who suffered so terribly during "Operation Barbarossa."
C. to my children Rebecca, Robert, Rohan, and Johanna, in the hope that they may never have to go through a world war:
The more we learn about the Second World War, the better our chances that it will be the LAST world war.
War must be confined to history books and games.
