This Week in World War Two History:

Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact
On August 23, 1939 Germany and the Soviet shocked the world when they signed a non-aggression treaty which would come to be known as the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact. In the pact the two countries publicly agreed to not attack one another or aid an enemy of the other country, this included Japans war with the Soviet Union in Manchuria. However, secretly the pact established zones of influence in Romania, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland. The secret intentions of the Pact where made apparent to the rest of the world when, on September 17, 1939, the Soviet Union invaded the eastern half of Poland and then occupied the Baltic States. The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact remained in effect until Germany launched operation Barbarossa on June 22, 1941 and invaded the Soviet Union.

The Battle of Stalingrad Begins
On August 23, 1942 Germany began its air assault on Stalingrad.  The fires and smoke from the air raids wasso thick that it turned day into night and large portions of the city were leveled.  The Luftwaffe bombardment of the city would last six days and more than 40,000 civilians would be killed because the Soviet Government would not evacuate the city.
