This is just rediculous.All 3 army groups in Barbarossa had eisenbahn truppen battalions following the combat divisions and they started converting the russian rail from day 1 of the offensive.the germans had to either modify their locomotives,or modify the russian rail network.
Rubbish!The rail lines were converted at the rate of 20 klms per day on the way to Minsk.extremely time consuming tasks
Wrong!The Wehrmacht had around 600,000 vehicles.the Wehrmacht was supported by a fleet of 70,000 vehicles...
Inaccurate!Only during the Rasputitsa and severe winter did supply services break down.the germans could not supply bothsufficient fuel to their armoured spearheads andsufficient food for their infantry
