The force that the Germans assembled for the invasion was staggering, consisting of over 3 million men. However, the decision to go to war with the Soviets and break the alliance Germany had with them has puzzled historians for decades.  It ultimately was an extremely costly failure that resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of people.  Learn more about Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the Soviet Union, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Spain, like most countries, has a unitary national government but also has a series of subnational jurisdictions.  In most countries, these might be known as states or provinces; however, in Spain, they do things a little differently.  The political divisions in Spain aren’t arbitrary lines on a map. The divisions are usually based on unique histories, as well as cultural, linguistic, and geographic differences.  Learn more about the political and cultural geography of Spain and the various regions that comprise it on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

On January 16, 1919, the 18th Amendment to the US Constitution was passed. It banned the manufacture, sale, and transportation of alcohol.  The path to the 18th Amendment was something that was almost a century in the making, and once it was passed, it was widely ignored both illegally and through numerous legal loopholes.  Finally, after being in place for almost 14 years, it was repealed with overwhelming popular support using a constitutional method that has never been used before or since. Learn more about prohibition, how it came about, and how it ended on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
