Battle of Stalingrad (1942-43)

  • čas přidán 15. 02. 2017
  • As the Germans advanced towards Stalingrad in the Summer of 1942, the war came to the locals of the city and evacuation was slow to the speed of the Wehrmacht’s advancement.
    Because the city bore Stalin’s name it was of a high importance for the morale of the Soviet forces to hold it.

    I hate the Soviet Union as a country, but I have a lot of respect for many of the red army soldiers who fought in WW2.

    I think my biggest question is why did the Germans not fight with Russian weapons as they began to run out of ammo? You’re literally surrounded by dead Russians carrying rifles and sub machine gun, most of them still with all of their ammo, and you can’t just pick it up and use it?

      I think it's a matter of pride in some way. Last I checked the Nazis thought the Russians were really primitive, like when they saw the t-34 tank was just like a bunch of pedals and a stick they were thinking, How were these Primitives able to do anything. They were part of a large army that prided itself and having the best uniforms and weapons best country overall really so it might not be too surprising.
      Also I think that maybe the differences in the weapons also made it a bit tougher to actually want to use the Soviet weapons, they were trained to use an MP40 not a ppsh. They were trained to use a Luger not a Tokarev. Maybe it's just the fact that they were different weapons they really didn't want to take the chances of using it and being even less effective because they can't aim it correctly. Those are my two guesses.
      But in the end I doubt it really would have mattered to be fair.

    ...Stalingrad was an industry capital of Russia like Moscow. Stalingrad was used for producing tanks bombs and guns. It was essential for the ussr to maintain its war stance. The fact it shared stalins name and that being the reason it was vital is still heavily debated

    As a Russian I’ve got to say thank you Americans and British and the west for helping. My great uncle died in 1943 in Leningrad. And my great grammas baby was bombarded by the Germans. Because of the west and for the generals of Russia and for the red army that defeated Germany. Thank you for my peace
