German and Soviet forces were began fighting on the Eastern Front in June 1941. Some of the fiercest battles of World War II was fought across the Soviet Union. The Soviets halted the enemy at the Battle of Moscow, then were able to slowly push the Germans west with key victories at Stalingrad and Kursk. The Soviets entered into Germany and began planning for an offensive against Berlin in early 1945.
On April 9th, Zhukov was able to rapidly redeploy his command to a narrow front opposite the heights. This corresponded with Konev shifting the bulk of his men north to a position along the Neisse River.
To support his build up in the bridgehead, Zhukov constructed 23 bridges over the Oder and operated 40 ferries. By mid-April he had assembled 41 divisions, 2,655 tanks, 8,983 guns, and 1,401 rocket launchers. Attacking again on April 18th, the Soviets began to push through the German lines, though at a heavy price. By nightfall, Zhukov's men had reached the final line of German defenses.
Charging forward on April 19th, the Soviets overwhelmed the last German defensive line. With their position shattered, German forces began retreating west towards Berlin. With the road open, Zhukov began a rapid advance on Berlin.
