Brickmania’s Barbarossa 41 Theme Launches with Limited Edition Battle Pack + Free Shirt Offer Thru 9/18
On June 22, 1941, Adolph Hitler’s top secret invasion of the Soviet Union was launched. The invasion, codenamed Operation Barbarossa, was the largest military operation ever attempted. A combined force of over 3.9 million men from Germany and other Axis countries achieved total surprise and quickly overwhelmed the frontier defenses of the Soviet Union. Spearheaded by lightining fast advances of the elite Panzer forces, the invaders conquored Soviet territory at an astonishing rate, and would find themselves at the very gates of Leningrad and Moscow by early December. The onset of the harsh Russian winter and Soviet reinforcements from the east combined to halt operation Barbarossa in its tracks and eventually result in the total defeat of the Axis nations over the next four long and bloody years.
Brickmania has adopted the name “Barbarossa 41” to identify a who new series World War II themed kits based on the early years of World War II in Europe, particularly on the Eastern Front. To launch the series we are combining the first two tank kits into a special Battle Pack. The kits are the German Panzer II and the Soviet T-26, both prominently participating in the opening months of the conflict. The pack also includes an exclusive Soviet 53-K 45 mm Anti Tank Gun, whose crews played a heroic role in slowing down the Axis advance. And finally there are three bonus minifigs, including commanders for the tanks and a Soviet soldier.
