The Great Patriotic War

For post soviet countries, with Kazakhstan being one of them, the Great Patriotic War is the period from 22 June 1941 to 9 May 1945 when the countries fought on many fronts of the eastern campaign of World War II between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany with its allies. There is a difference between the Great Patriotic War term and the World War II, as the term denotes only the war between Germany and its European allies, and the Soviet Union. The war with Japan (including the invasion of Manchuria) and the war on the Western front are not referred to by this term. Nor does it cover the Soviet Union's 1939 attacks on Poland, Finland, the 1940 invasion of the Baltic states, or the 1941 invasion of Iran.
