The first decades of the 20th century saw a sea change in European politics and culture, while two world wars altered the shape of the continent for ever
Europe 1900-1945: Kerch, Crimea, January 1942
Kerch, Crimea, January 1942

Operation Barbarossa, Hitler’s invasion of the Soviet Union launched on 22 June 1941, flung some 150 divisions and 3 million men into battle along an 1,800-mile front from the Baltic to the Black Sea. Here, seven months later, at the southern end of the front, at Kerch in the Crimean peninsula (now part of an independent Ukraine), families identify the Soviet dead. Barely one week later, on 10 January 1942, Marshal Zhukov launched the great Red Army counterattack on the central front that forced the Germans to retreat for the first time.
