100,000 at the most. Not that either way it means that Poland was an occupied country.
I can't find a stat. I know by '89 there was 40,000 Red soldiers left.
So you would consider that GDR was for all of its existence an occupied country? There were more than three times as many foreign troops there than in Poland.
It's not the number it was the efficiency of control I was pointing to and that they had a presence as part of a feedback system.
However my entire point on occupation is that the nation that controls the military is the occupier. Just rhetorically, as a percentage, how big was the Raj in India.
