Answer by Yun
He tried in the first place.
History should have shown him that fighting Russia in its own land on its own terms was suicide.
The Russians are masters of attrition and house to house fighting. Both of those things are good for beating militaries bigger than the defender, and the Russians had more men as well. The Germans didn’t really stand that much of a chance.
Answer by lucky
reason why hitler failed to defeat russia was because he was being attacked by england & usa from one side & he attacked russia in winter & his troops who were already tired by constant fighting couldn’t bear the harsh russian winter & finally they were defeated by russia . hitler always believed that german’s were invincible. it was because of this stupid belief he decided to attack russia inspite of warnings by his genrals & commanders not to do so.if he had first concentrated on defeating england & then attacked on russia, germany wouldn’t have been defeated.
Answer by S. M.
Hitler had somewhat of an alliance with Stalin, but broke it by invading Russia. However, the Nazis weren’t prepared for the severity of Russian winters, so the Russians were able to beat them back.
Answer by DON W
It was a case of a wolf attacking a lion. While the wolf has large fangs, is a good fighter and may at first gain the upper hand, the lion will ultimately win.
The Soviet Union, although caught unprepared when the Germans invaded, had huge resources to call upon: a very large population, mineral wealth, factories–you name it. Their land mass was incredibly large, extending all the way to the Pacific. Once they were able to mobilize their population and industry, they were able to push back the Germans. Aiding them was the awful Russian climate, which the Germans weren’t adequately prepared for, and the long supply lines needed to feed the German army. Plus, the Russians were fighting on their home turf, and were highly motivated to defend “Mother Russia”. The western allies also helped by launching their own offensives in Italy, Normandy, and the south of France, which forced Hilter to reinforce his western armies, pulling away resources which he needed to fight the Soviets.

22 “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow
or seen the storehouses of the hail,
23 which I reserve for times of trouble,
for days of war and battle?
Answer by Reverend Rene
Listen, and listen good. Hitler failed to defeat Russia due to many reasons, one of which was thinking that German soldiers were more than human, “superhuman. His only thought was in conquest, not all the variables that go into warfare, food, clothing, etc. He forgot one of the most important factors in warfare, the HUMAN FACTOR! Men are not machines, and machines are not men!
