Not sure I agree with that. Blitzkrieg was a huge success, Germany did not fail because of the weather or the Red Army it's self, they failed because the Russian network was inadequate and they were extremely optimistic with regards to logistical planning. Had ACG had just two more Eisenbahn
regiments things could have been very different.
