      Posting this in order to get my Curious Mind badge as well as because it combines two things I really like:  History & Data Visualization.  Hard to believe this was done in MS Paint!

      From the Video Summary on YouTube:

      This video shows the changing front lines of the European Theater of World War II every day from the German invasion of Poland to the surrender of Germany.
      Maroon: Axis Power members, their dependencies/colonies, and annexed lands.
      Burgundy: Areas militarily occupied by the Axis Powers.
      Red: Axis puppet states.
      Pink: Axis gains during that day.
      Blue: Allied powers and areas occupied by the allies.
      Light blue: Allied gains for that day.
      Purple colors (left to right): Finland, occupied by Finland, and Finnish gains that day.
      Dark Green: The USSR before it joined the allies and annexed lands.
      Green: Areas militarily occupied by the USSR before it joined the allies.
