OK girl, so whatever is written or filmed is nothing to you unless it's written by the Poles or the Soviets between 1945 and 1989.
It's a waste of time. Case closed.
Depends, if i hear that Poland was destroyed in two weeks or that Barbarossa was so effortlessly rolling down Russia that raises an eyebrow.
I read german, english, american sources mainly...and especially with the german witnesses about the eastern front I don't get the feeling they want to defame the Russians purposely to demean their own achievements.
Again point of view, german troopers went in with the perception that they're fighting subhumans, after a few weeks they were sh*tting their pants because quite frankly Russians were superior in every respect but command.
They didnt cry out in pain, they didnt succumb to weather, they could fight hungry, tired, burned or wounded when any of us would just crumble and you wont hear it today but every goddamn Wehrmacht soldier had the Russians for subhumans, Nazi or not.
And then Russians went and kicked Germans all the way back to Berlin.
Hard to be objective when subhumans went and shat all over your warmachine like that.
My sources are in Polish mainly, i can of course find english translations or stuff by (mostly swedish) authors but the truth about WW2 is warped by political realities.
Germany had its 5 minutes while retards were running Russia, but when retards died out intelligent people were let out of the Gulags and started rolling again, these generals are not famous but Russia had dozens of them and it showed.
