  • Operation Uranus Begins (1942)
    In the summer of 1941, a wave of German forces swept into the Soviet Union and proceeded to conquer a vast amount of territory.

The enormous Soviet counteroffensive, code-named Operation Uranus, overwhelmed them. Within days, their entire force at Stalingrad was encircled.

Jane was succeeded by Henry VIII's eldest daughter, whose turbulent five-year-reign earned her the nickname "Bloody Mary." Mary died childless, and the crowning of her half-sister, Elizabeth, marked the beginning of an era of stability. How long did Elizabeth reign?
