On the June 22 preceding the start of his world war in Year 24, Napoleon / Hitler launched an unprecedented surprise land invasion of Russia, the world's largest land-based empire, using the biggest invading army ever assembled. This eastward expansion of his European empire marked his most ambitious military campaign and most stunning provocation of a world war.

  • Breaking the treaty he had signed with the Russian dictator, this openly treacherous invasion initiated Napoleon's / Hitler's infamous "total war" policy, a war strategy that dedicated the bulk of his empire's resources to a campaign of unrestrained aggression against Russia's military and civilian targets. As the world's most feared army traversed the main Eastern European roads from Warsaw to Moscow, the Russians confronted the greatest foreign threat to have ever faced their country, a menace that would reap the worst destruction of any calamity to date.
