During World War II, Germany ran under a fascist government led by Hitler and Mussolini. Germany appeared to be powerful, but after an attack on the Soviet Union, the Soviet Red Army began to defend their country and target Germany to defeat fascism. Along with allies such as America, Britain, and Italy, the Soviet Union destroyed German cities, fought a bloody battle on June 6, 1944, on the beaches of northern France in what is widely known as D-Day, and took over the Nazi capital of Berlin. With Germany overwhelmed by the Allies, both Mussolini and Hitler faced a gruesome defeat. In the spring of 1945, Hitler committed suicide, officially defeating fascism.
