I've been reading other posts and pages and came across the following statement:
While this may or may not have been so I'm interested in who would have been present at such a meeting. It seems a huge decision to make without others being involved whether among those who traveled with Hitler (BTW who would these be?) or those from Army Group Centre.In Borisov on August 4, 1941, Hitler stayed only two hours, participating in a meeting of the leadership of Army Group Center.However, these two hours seriously affected the course of the entire Wehrmacht campaign in the east, and therefore had an impact on the history of the Second World War, which could have had a completely different character.
The fact that the Nazi leader of Germany was in Borisov in August 1941 became known long ago from the memoirs of German military leaders and close associates of the Fuhrer published in the 50-60s of the last century.
This fact was first recorded in Soviet cinema 35 years ago. In the second film of the epic “Battle for Moscow” there is an episode showing this meeting and marked with the credits: “Borisov. Army Group Center. August 4, 1941."
The details of the memories of this event differ among memoirists, but in the end, some Western historians, in particular, Alfred Turney, tend to believe that the day of August 4, 1941 was the turning point in the German campaign in Russia.
If this is a dumb question I apologise although I have searched this forum as best I can, however my main area of interest is the British Army so my depth of knowledge is pretty shallow.
Thanks for reading this.
