More tank vids
Das Kessel earned it's nickname that winter.
Been a busy year, but I've been here, drop by my channel and give it a paruse and you'll read the good news and bad.
As always, bud, all the best to you and your's.
Funny, I always remember the conversation we had about the proper way to cook shark steaks when I see that avi of your's.
Is that you pictured there?
Reminds me of myself when I was younger, except I had Barbarian Hair to thrash to!
Tank you for that.
Stalingrad; the chairman of the board of "Most Historically Important Battles of Recent History Inc."
It's so difficult to weigh up exactly which of the 5 or 6 most strategically important battles of WW2 was the most decisive, but I can't help thinking that it out-ranks The Battle of Britain, El-Alamein, Midway, Kursk or The Battle of the Atlantic (very close 2nd in my opinion)
Fuck, I love what our ancestors did for us....
that was gr8, cheers
All Soviet childdren grew up with the myth of Stalingrad . The myth of the brave Soviet solider fighting to save communism , from the Hilterite hordes. The reality is they fought for Mother Russia , for eternal Russia , and of pure hatred for the fascist scum .
@ComradeAgopian Actually this myth didn't exist and everbody knew their fathers and grandpas fought for their lives and the lives of their descendants.
the computer graphics remind me of my red orchestra days
Great upload. That was the definite turning point of WWII, from then on it only went downhill for the powers of the Axis.
@Valerie2007 I read about this and of the subsequent rout of Berlin in two books by Anthony Beevor....excellent........could hardly put the books down until I had finished them....Lately I have read The Great War for Civilisation......and Pity the Nation Lebanon at War...both marvellous books by Robert Fisk.....awesome....pleased I have lived my life in peacetime and eternal thanks to the brave resistance to the Nazi scum. My dads war was in Italy..shot and busted up but obviously a survivor...b More..rave brave men......the history of the planet is one of endless warring... ;( Less..
@dietcokesucks Well you did spell through correctly lol.
Interesting upload - tanks had an important role, but the battle of Stalingrad was mainly decided on other aspects: organisational flexibility, the strategic battle and street fighting in Stalingrad city.
Ze Germans lost both wars because they were never able to supply their armies. We never learned thas lesson :-(
Look how the US won WWII: Lot's of people, lots of supplies, Just in time and again fucking lots of it.
Yes, and Hitler wasn't able to supply his armies because he had over-stretched his fronts - he had way too many objectives all at once.
It was pointless attacking Stalingrad at the same time as attempting to take the southern oil fields - the German armed forces could only realistically achieve one of these objectives at a time.
I read the Russians moved their military factories to the east out of German bomber range and began producing arms before the walls were even built..in winter. That would be very harsh.
The russians moved their factories behind the Ural (look it up) and produced thousands of tanks without ze Germans being able to hit them. This was because Adolph refused to have a long distance bomber (like a B24 or B 29) developed.
1:13 what's an Abrams doing in Stalingrad?
@KarlNapf That is the introduction footage for the History Channel's show "Tank Battles". It covers great tank engagements from the development of the tank to today.
One thing is sure, went you go to bed tonight, thank your lucky stars that you were not in the fight for Stalingrad. This was WWII at its most vicious. The average life expectancy of a Russian replacement soldier in the street fighting was less then 24 hours. I've seen interviews with Russian vets of the fight for the city that had them armed with shovels to clear buildings. Literally, they would charge up flights of stairs to German positions in buildings and hack them to death with shovels. Fu More..cking crazy stuff. And the Russian vet being intervied said he was insane when he did it. He said that he had to be. So many Russians died, they still find soldier's bones when plowing farm fields on the city outskirts. Less..
good info !
Nikita Khrushchev was a commissar assigned to the sector where Stalingrad was located during the battle. He was forbidden from entering the city because Stalin was worried he would see the plight of the Soviet troops there and sympathize with them.
