What rosy glasses. The death rate on the Eastern front was what around 100 Russians to 1 German? Some had to share rifles. Yes the Russians won but look up “pyhric”. To this day Russian society has never recovered. In some places there are still little pictures of Stalin in offices — imagine that pictures of a man who killed as many Russians as Hitler himself — I never can figure that part of Russians out. Indeed Statlin could be glad that Hitler was such a genocidal racist — if not then millions of Stalins poor subjects would have gladly turned around and fought him alongside the Germans. As it was the choice of the average poor Russian schmuck was death or death.
