Analysis of key problems of the Great Soviet people's Victory over Nazi Germany was and still is very important. Special research focus is made on not investigated problems of start, run and end of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. In particular, the paper analyzes so called «white» spots of World War II in the scientific literature. The article addresses such issues as repression of commanders of the Red Army; contradictions of military theory on the eve of World War II, designed to justify the offensive nature of the impending war; treatment of non-aggression pact with Germany, August 23, 1939; suddenness of the German attack on the USSR despite numerous intelligence reports; enormous loss of life and others. In this context, the author emphasizes the fact that though the seventh decade after The Great Patriotic War had already finished, the number of «white spots» in its history has not diminished. In the article these spots have been analyzed basing on a specific factual material.
