The Russian Front

Post by Larry » Sun Feb 15, 2009 6:36 pm

A TESTIMONIAL EXPRESSION OF GRATITUDE FROM A PEOPLE (THE RUSSIANS) TO THOSE WHO SERVED IN THE DEFENSE OF THEIR MOTHERLAND DURING THOSE DARK DAYS OF NEED. WHAT A HELL IT MOST HAVE BEEN.

I HOPE EVERYONE WHO VISITS THIS SITE WILL LEARN AND BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT THE SO CALLED EASTERN FRONT WAS ALL ABOUT. THIS AMAZING PRESENTATION WILL CERTAINLY HELP WITH THAT EFFORT. IT HELPED ME AND I THOUGHT I WAS PRETTY WELL INFORMED.

ADLERTAG -THANKS (TOO SMALL A WORD) FOR SHARING THIS.

I'm not sure if it is allowed to post titles of books in here. If not, please let me know and Ill remove or edit this post (or the admin may feel free to delete it).

If interested in the Russo-German war you might also read "Russia's war" from Richard Overy.

The Russians really cracked the German war machine and the free world owes them a lot of gratitude, although I'm very happy that my part of the continent was not "liberated" by the Soviets, but by the Poles, Canadians, British and Americans (and all others I forget to mention).

The amount of suffering and bloodshed on that part of the front are unimaginable (without putting aside the bloodshed and suffering in other parts of the war theater), also because in the east the war had some other gruesome dimensions, foremost the racial aspect of the Nazi regime, and was between two scrupulous totalitarian regimes for which the human live had no real significance at all.

If any of you don't listen to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History Podcast I highly recommend it. Particularly the 4 part Ghosts of the Ostfront. It is the story of the Soviets vs the Nazis and it is the single best podcast on the 'net.
