  • that guy at 2:40 got put on his arse by the muzzle flash. damn near took his head off. hectic.

    can't imagine the world will ever witness a war on the scale of the eastern front ever again.

  • I find it remarkable that Russia was able to survive that war despite the tremendous loss of life and the destruction of much of its industrial base and then even challenge the US that was left completely untouched by the most distructive war the world has ever known.

    • your own government killed many of those people as millions were liquidated ahead of the German advance- anyone who would proove sympathetic to the Nazis- which were entire countries. The people of Ukraine, Latvia, Estonia etc had been getting staved , deported and murdered for decades. Hitlers biggest mistake in Ww2 was failing to ally himself with the massive anti communist movement in the occupied countries.
      Much of that infrastructure was also destroyed by the Russian army itself as it retr More..

    • No doubt that was impressive. But the massive investment in military rebuilding after the war... did not improve civilian economic life as quickly as in the west. And we know where that went.

    • Maybe more "Soviets" than Hitler. Nobody really knows. Certainly, Stalin was directly responsible for the loss rate the Red Army suffered during the war. I can tell you this-his madness and paranoia led to the deaths of countless millions. Forget the numbers game. The reality is-Stalin was a disaster for Russians, Ukrainians, Belaurussians, Uzbeks, Georgians, Azerbajianis... ect.

    • The Nazi's wasted no time brutalizing the Russians and enslaving soldiers that would have gladly fought against Stalin.
      Hitler, Himmler and all the other asses have only themselves to blame for their blind ideology.

  • this is where ww2 was decided- by the time D day came around the German army was but a husk of it's former self. Over half of the Germans " soldiers' killed by allied troops in Western Europe were draftees from ages 16-60. The bottom of the barrel. As Hitler said twords the end of the war ' the best have already been killed"

    • Do you think we, Russians, had better life during that 40 years that you described? It's fault of Germans that they started invasion and gave chance to communist come to Berlin.

    • ur right, it would be better we had waited for stalin to invade the german areas, as he planned. it would sound better today that we fight back the communist. immagine how the 40 years would be under german control, who knows? maybe all of u driving mercedes and have plenty of food?

    • Not true at all. The Hitler regime was unsustainable. Hitler's mental and physical health was in decline which would have left a rather chaotic power vacuum. Most scholars agree that while it would have spread further, it would after collapsed in on itself within a few years after Hitler's death. Without Russian and Western opposition, more of Europe would likely speak German, but it would have never left Europe.

    • I don't remember the authors, I just retain knowledge from the dozens books I've read over the last decade on this topic. Up until a few years ago I was on a WW2 kick. But do you really need an expert to tell you that America would be speaking German and/or living German in culture if not for the Russians? Really?

    • No. I'm talking about your assertion that the Nazis would have collapsed on themselves if they had won. Where did you hear that?

    • Again, I cannot recall specific citations of 1 or 2 books out of dozens that I read several years ago. It was a book I found on Amazon though, so you could probably find it through them or Google.

      What I specifically remember reading about, was a book on Hitler's leadership and the struggling populace. This book went into detail illustrating examples of how regime and policy faltered without direct oversight. The author went on to make an educated claim that the Nazi regime would collapse under More..

  • Zhukov was demoted after the war by Stalin but his popularity saved his life. The leadership of Leningrad during he siege were killed by Stalin after the war. In regards to the question about how Trotsky would have handled it, probably not well - he had a very high opinion of Germany and a low opinion of Russia (expressed by himself and other high ranking Bolsheviks in their complaints about the low quality of human capital in Russia) and explicitly advanced the opinion that the USSR was no mili More..
