The Hitlerites in the early days of the war realized that there would be no “blitzkrieg” in the USSR

1941 year, the very beginning of the war - the non-healing wound of the domestic stories. The question that historians have been discussing for many years is related to whether the Soviet Union could have done less in the first weeks of the war, could it be better prepared for the enemy invasion than was done?


The Hitlerites in the early days of the war realized that there would be no “blitzkrieg” in the USSR


In the early days and months of the war, the Red Army suffered crushing defeats - it would be strange to deny this today. But at the same time, Hitler’s “machine” for the first time since the beginning of World War II (and its beginning can be considered the invasion of German and Polish troops in Czechoslovakia) experienced tremendous opposition, the fortitude of the soldier of the enemy army. Indeed, before the start of the war against the USSR, the advancement of German divisions in Europe more closely resembled something similar to the parade march: individual states surrendered to Hitler for several days.

In one of the programs on the Day TV channel, the first stage of the Great Patriotic War is discussed. The problem was raised due to the fact that in our country the general public about the first months of the war is much less known than about periods of future victories (for that moment). But if the Soviet troops were defeated at the first stage of the Second World War, this does not at all reduce the public interest in the events that took place at that time on the fronts, this does not mean the absence of the feat of the Red Army soldiers of that period of warfare.

The air presents the opinion of the columnist of the journal "Historian", doctor of historical sciences Oleg Nazarov. The program also presents important quotes from German sources.

German General Edgar von Butlar:
As a result of the stubborn resistance of the Russians in the early days of the fighting, German troops suffered such losses in personnel and equipment that were significantly higher than the losses known from the experience of campaigns in Poland and the West.


The Nazis in the early days of the war realized that the promised “blitzkrieg” would not work - victorious march on paper was one thing, real battles with the Red Army were another.

    In fact, the endurance of the Soviet troops and the problems of the German in the early days and months of the war are clearly visible from Halder's diary. The German commander very quickly realized that this would be a completely different war ...

      At the beginning of the war, the Red Army usturail the Wehrmacht in the main: The Red Army hopelessly lost to the Germans by the number of troops simultaneously entering the battle. That is, a German machine debugged in two years of war primitively smashed the "raw" units of the Red Army in parts. Unfortunately, we were doomed to lose in the initial period of the war.

        The Red Army hopelessly lost to the Germans by the number of troops simultaneously entering the battle

        This is called a "strategic initiative." The advancing side chooses where to strike. The enemy is forced to respond, i.e. always losing at least one pace.
        It is for this reason that the mechanized corps were lost, which were thrown either in one direction or in another. And a significant number of cars, mostly heavy, were simply lost due to damage to the chassis. The same newer HFs had problems in this part. This is well described in the materials regarding the battle of Brody, Exactly, although this was not a one-time operation, but a series of counterattacks.

        Only a counterattack can seize the initiative. That’s why they threw not deployed, not finished units into counterattacks - there was no time. And it was precisely this that made it possible to complicate the implementation of the Wehrmacht plans as much as possible and to gain time for preparing the second echelon of troops.

        The second significant factor is the almost zero radioification of units, primarily armored. In the attack, the tank unit was poorly controlled. Only the commander’s vehicles had walkie-talkies, some of the vehicles had only receivers, the rest, before the attack, the commander said “do as I do”. German gunners quickly learned to identify command vehicles. It is not difficult to guess what happened to the operation when the commander died.

          Tank and mechanized corps were also lost due to an imperfect staff: a small number of vehicles, motorized infantry and repair and evacuation services. Plus the lack of air cover.

            Plus, the almost complete absence of such vehicles as ARVs in the Red Army, and the hulls themselves were formed very recently, therefore, on the one hand, there was no time to debug the control of these hulls, on the other hand, all tanks were driven into the mechanized corps, depriving the tanks of infantry, which The result was greatly weakened.

          This is called a "strategic initiative."

          This is precisely what is called lead in deployment, when there are more troops on the battlefield than the enemy.
          The initiative is the next item.
          The radioification of parts ... I would not call it a serious drawback compared to the imperfection of the MK staff, the unpreparedness of military personnel, the lack of state-owned vehicles, weapons and other property.

            A little bit wrong. The passive side, even turning around, cannot know where the strike will be delivered. The troops are forcedly “smeared” along the front. The active side does not need to think about defense, because it can concentrate its forces in the chosen direction of impact, even with a general parity of forces.
            The Wehrmacht used the tactics of "ticks" - converging strikes, encircling and destroying troops or mechanized groups went to the rear, smashing warehouses, airfields, etc., and the infantry entered the breakthrough.

            But this tactic also had weaknesses, which the Soviet commanders had already quite learned to use by the end of the 41st — a counterattack. Often - in another place, but nearby. And the Wehrmacht had a dilemma - to ignore the counterattack and lose there, but win here or abandon the operation and transfer forces to stop the threat.
            It was possible to counterattack on the flank by the advancing, but for this, forces had to be “stored up" in advance, which at first were not very special.

            As for radio communications .... yes, a trifle, when, for example, a tank attack ended in the death of almost the entire unit, only because an undetected camouflaged anti-tank battery opened from the flank and snapped the cars one after the other, and the crews of the wrecked vehicles, at least and the living could not report the threat. And when they understood what was happening, then there was already no one to fight.

              A little bit wrong

              According to pre-war standards, the outfit of forces for an army defensive operation in the main direction assumed 12-15 SD, 1-2 TD, 4-5 AP RGK on the front 100-120 km. Due to the lead of the SD, it was 5-8, and they were not in the trenches, but were placed in the RPM with regiments and battalions to a depth of 40-60 (individual parts up to 100, for example 5 A KOVO) km. Given the superiority of the Germans in areas of breakthroughs (initiative) -without options.
              As for the radio ....

              Suppose this happened during the attack of the TK / MK / TA model 1943-1945. In addition to tanks (of which far from all are equipped with radios) in the building of 6 battalions of machine gunners and 1 motorcyclist, in the MSBr MinDn, LADn, in the building of the MinPolk, LAP, the division of the guards mortars (SAP do not count). During the battle, the commander of the brigade is required to attend the commander of the MinP / LAP (division) to organize artillery support and support the attack.

          An equally important factor is the lead in deployment. The fully mobilized German army attacked the peacetime army, which did not receive mobilization from the national economy: tractors, cars, people. And that is why the effectiveness of counterattacks of the mechanized corps was low — some tanks attacked, but people and artillery did not keep pace with them. Well, the connection ... I want to cry when you imagine how tank commanders climb out of the hatch during a battle and indicate the direction of attack with flag signals. Eternal memory to these heroes, who in such conditions delayed the Wehrmacht for minutes / hours / days / weeks, allowing them to complete the mobilization and evacuation.

          The armored forces of the Red Army were better radiated than the Germans, and indeed, the events near Brody - Exactly can still be attributed to surprise. What can you say about the battle of Senno in early July, more than two mechanized corps were perfectly prepared and equipped.

            I don’t know how much you are in the topic of the characteristics of German radio stations, and the training of signalmen in the Wehrmacht, but I only note that we did not reach the level of German signalmen until the end of the war, so your statement only indicates that you’re in communication with the spacecraft do not know.
            By the way, a large number of captured German radio stations were installed on our aircraft because of their better quality and wider range of use, and I knew a person who developed adapters for their connection to the on-board network and was engaged in their installation in our aircraft.

            In the sense? What is the advantage of the radioification of our mechanized corps? The Germans on every penny-two, koi and tanks with a stretch can be called, the radio was in the infantry in each platoon. In the Red Army, only at the battalion level was equipped with walkie-talkies. Communication in battle is one of the keys to success.

          To deliver a counterattack, it is necessary to concentrate forces, tightening reserves and exhausting the enemy in defensive battles. Only nobody really allowed to defend the Red Army - they threw forces in parts, striking with spread fingers.

        On 22.06.1941/5/7 the Red Army in general was significantly inferior to the Wehrmacht in terms of numbers (about 8 million people against XNUMX million people (I recall from memory, without specification)) and in the east of the country more troops had to be held than Hitler could afford to leave in the west . Plus Finland, Hungary, Romania (the Italian corps (later the XNUMXth army) arrived at the front in July-August, i.e., the Italians did not participate in the June battles). The forces of Army Group Center initially exceeded the forces of the Western Front by at least three times. Of course, in places the command plugged holes randomly and threw everything that was at hand into battle on the move. But from the first days of the war the Reserve Front was formed along the line of Zap. Dvina - Dnieper, on which, unfortunately, it was also not possible to manage to concentrate sufficiently large forces. But he nevertheless played a certain role in slowing the advance of the Wehrmacht (battle of Smolensk). So it seems that Sergey’s comment is somewhat inaccurate.

        “The German people looked to the future, full of bright hopes: the war seemed over. How bitter were the losses in German families, they should be considered quite tolerant, given the grandeur of the success achieved. 27 people were killed, 074 were missing (only part died), 18 people were injured. " (K. Tippelskirch, Chief Quartermaster of the IV General Staff of the Ground Forces of the Third Reich. "History of the Second World War." Published in Germany in 384. Published in the USSR in 111 under the editorship of Lieutenant General V.F. Vorobyov.
        Exceptional accuracy! Tippelskirch does not provide data on the loss of tank troops.
        As for the Kursk arc, which hohol95 calls "notorious", the venerable general generally avoids these words and does not mention the loss of the parties at all. And they are famous. During the defensive phase of the Battle of Kursk (for the Red Army), the Wehrmacht suffered irretrievable losses (i.e., killed, captured and seriously wounded, who cannot return to duty) of 94-96 thousand people. The losses of the Red Army in this phase of the battle were comparable. The irretrievable losses of the Wehrmacht during the Oryol operation of the Red Army - about 92 thousand people, the losses of the Red Army - about the same. During the Belgorod-Kharkov operation, the irrecoverable losses of the Wehrmacht are estimated at 109-114 thousand people, the losses of the Red Army - about the same.
        So, during the battle on the "notorious" Kursk Bulge, the Wehrmacht's irretrievable losses amounted to about 300 people. For the entire "Battle for France", considering that approximately 000% of the wounded are included in irrevocable losses, they do not exceed 20 people. It is generally accepted that the Wehrmacht’s losses in armored vehicles during the entire battle amounted to about 70 units (about a quarter irretrievable), the Red Army — about the same, but irretrievable losses — up to half. It is interesting how, having inflicted 000 times less losses on the Wehrmacht during the entire “Battle for France” than the Red Army during the Battle of Kursk, the French managed to destroy more German tanks than the Red Army in the “notorious” Kursk, i.e. not less than 1600!
        Tippelskirch did not disclose the number of German troops and tank forces at the time of the invasion of France. But according to Wikipedia (sorry, sir), and sometimes it can be generally trusted, the Wehrmacht forces on the Western Front (i.e., before the invasion of France) had 2488 tanks.
        Thus, hohol95 believes that the Wehrmacht from June 5 to June 14 (the capture of Paris) lost at least 2/3 of the tanks. So why did he still enter Paris? The French were supposed to enter if not in Berlin (far away), then at least in Munich and Hanover!
        So.
        Keitel’s replica at the sight of the French delegation at the Nuremberg trials is quite understandable: - And did these also defeat us?

          Dear Nicholas! It's good that you left quotes for the word - the notorious!

          As for the Kursk arc, which hohol95 calls "notorious", the venerable general generally avoids these words and does not mention the loss of the parties at all.
          According to the journalist, in this battle, the Soviet army could not win, so the Victory Monument on Prokhorovsky Field, which was erected in memory of those killed in a tank battle near the village in July 1943, should be "immediately" demolished. “Recent research, based on undoubtedly real photographs, confirms that Prokhorovka had neither a Soviet victory, nor even a grandiose tank battle,” Kellerhoff wrote.

          Thus, hohol95 believes that the Wehrmacht from June 5 to June 14 (the capture of Paris) lost at least 2/3 of the tanks. So why did he still enter Paris? The French were supposed to enter if not in Berlin (far away), then at least in Munich and Hanover!

          I also noticed that in such an important topic, a respected historian did not touch on this issue. Everyone was happy and surprised at the miscalculations of Russian emigrants, mathematicians and other German specialists. But what did not analyze such massive miscalculations and reality? Why such a mismatch?

          The Nazis did not simply encounter a Russian soldier. Remaining Russian, it was already a Soviet soldier - therefore the emigrant miscalculated. And the fierce rebuff, meaningless from the German point of view, was not only because Moscow was behind. Behind was still the Soviet, popular power and socialist system. I don’t know how in WWI, but in WWII every soldier knew that if something happened to him, his family would be warmed by popular power and fed. Do not be lost in one word. And this is already a lot - to die with a light heart, knowing that nothing bad will happen to family and friends.

          The topic is very correct, I approve. It is necessary to fill this gap. And most of them only know about the feat and fortitude of the Brest Fortress. And there are thousands of them, nameless heroes who, in fact, saved both the country and all of us living now. That's what movies and TV shows need to be made about, and not what they show on TV.

          Here, only one thing was superfluous - there was no need to drag religion into this subject. None.

            U.I. Mukhin in a series of books "The War and Us" made an interesting comparative calculation of the courage and resilience of the Russian troops in the 1st MV and the 2nd. The ratio of killed, wounded and captured soldiers and officers of our army is investigated. Conclusion: in World War II, the courage and stamina of commanders increased 10 times, and soldiers 4 times. It seems to me that this is not far from the truth.

              Yes, I read. It seems to be the name "If not for the generals."

              According to other sources (without dividing into soldiers / officers), the ratio of killed / captured was as follows:
              RI in PMV for 1 killed 1,6 prisoners
              USSR in WWII for 1 killed 0,5 prisoners
              Those. the army between the two world wars became three times stronger.

              Andrei., The author to whom you refer, is of course a patriot, but he is never an expert in such topics. A primitive method of calculating his "research" is puzzling ..
              Yu.I. Mukhin is not even a military historian, but a publicist raising patriotic themes. "Calculations" is not his topic.

              So what is courage measured in? And heroism in what units?

                Not courage, but stamina. Feel better?

                Mukhin, yes, he is not an archival historian, and sometimes he goes too far in something. But he does it not from evil, and the excess is not in the wrong direction. I don’t like it, so what’s the problem - take it and spend five years in the archives and determine for yourself how many hundredths of a percent who made mistakes and where.

                  Alexander, in vain do you think that, as the saying goes, “I decided to pat the Lord for the beard.” Moreover, in general, I don’t have antipathy for Yuri Ignatievich Mukhin. It doesn’t matter what numbers he came to based on what he personally had at the time of the calculations. His methodology for this "calculation" does not hold water. But there will be followers of this "theory" with their initial data and will compare the courage of the Nazis, Finns, spirits, etc. with our soldiers. Comparative evaluations will appear, disputes from whom more precisely. Do you offer this to me? As a participant in the B / D, I see the idea of ​​such "calculations" as wild.

                    There is nothing wild here. There is no other way to determine the resilience of troops.

                    I have already cited data on how the army’s resilience increased from WWI to WWII. Our army. But look at other armies:

                    France killed / captured
                    - PMV ratio: 2,7: 1
                    - 1940 ratio: 1:18
                    As you can see, the resistance with a very high fell, and very much. Even in Poland, the ratio in 1939 was less: 1: 6,3

                    Of course, there are errors. Surely among those killed there were those who would gladly go over to the side of the enemy an opportunity, and among those who were captured, there were those who would never do it voluntarily (for example, they were unconscious). Nevertheless, this is the only way to understand the degree of army resilience, its readiness to stand to death at the frontiers.

                      Alexander, in fact, there were many authors of such calculations. Figures for every taste. In my opinion, Sokolov was blasted for low performance, and for the highest score of another author, he was taken to heaven. This is me about the objectivity of information. Anyway! I looked at the book of memory of our region. The layout is approximately the following. Of all the 279397 people called up during the B / D period: 1/3 survived, 1/3 died, 1/3 went missing. How is courage, coefficient, ratio, durability, efficiency etc. calculate?

              You would have less savory yellow cranberries from the 90s. By the way, and how does this vomit taste?

              From order No. 270, dated August 16, 1941:
              I order:

              1. Commanders and Political Workers, during the battle, tearing off the insignia and deserting to the rear or surrendering to the enemy, considered malicious deserters, families of which are subject to arrest as families of oath-destroying and betraying deserters.

              To oblige all senior commanders and commissioners to shoot on the spot such deserters from the commanders.


              Go ahead, the liberals haven’t told you that, right? And then there’s something! It turns out it was only about the families of commanders and political workers. And besides, not shooting - arrest.

              It does not even occur to all of you who have grown up in the present foul time that families of the kind mentioned in the order would have shot their own such “heroes” themselves, if only they had the opportunity. Then the whole country was as one Taras Bulba, well, remember - "how I gave birth to you ..."

              Be ashamed!

                What is arrest in those years - I am sure you know very well. What does this mean for man - too.
                And after all this, such a copper-headed pathos. It is at least dirty.
                Be ashamed.

            It seems that there are documents that Stalin intervened, for example, banned the withdrawal of troops from Kiev and we received hundreds of thousands of prisoners there. Who's guilty? Stalin. But fortunately, by the end of the war, he realized his mistakes and began to listen more to the generals.

      Well, the command of the border districts seems to be not responsible for the preparation of troops and raising them on alert - so what is your statement to understand?
      It's easy to blame everything on Tymoshenko and Zhukov, although I do not justify their indecision at a meeting with Stalin, but then the question arises why Zakharov, the district chief of staff, did what the commanders Pavlov and Kirponos could not do already on June 22.
      Maybe you should not so primitively evaluate the actions of the leadership of the Red Army on the eve of the war in order to understand why the 1941 tragedy happened?

                besides all the problems associated with multiple superiority in tanks and aircraft? Zhukov decided it is easy, do you need to talk about plans for a counter strike?

                      if there was such a document - not to demolish Zhukov’s head, but otherwise it’s difficult to explain the concentration of troops in the southwestern direction,

                      Do you know that the density of troops per kilometer of the border in ZAPOVO and PribOVO was higher than in KOVO? What "concentration of troops" are you declaring here, if you take into account the total number of troops in the KOVO on June 22 and the territory of the district?
                      Strange, but it seems you are not at all in the subject, and are trying to advise me to read something else from the literature. Here is how things were with the density of troops on June 22:
                      "Table 6. Compounds planned for the cover and defense of the USSR state border as of May June 1941 {97}"

                      http://militera.lib.ru/h/1941/02.html
                      From the table, the ratio of ZapOVO and KOVO divisions is 44 and 61, respectively, and this ratio is approximately 1: 1,4. With a border length ratio for these districts of 1: 1,8 (470 and 860 km, respectively), even a first-year cadet will realize that in KOVO the concentration of troops per kilometer of the front was lower than in ZAPOVO.
                      So in which “three volumes” did you see the “concentration” of troops in the KOVO on June 22?

                        We lost the border battles primarily because the troops of the three districts did not take up positions on the cover plan at least an hour or two before the Wehrmacht attack. And there is a lot of evidence that many units woke up after an artillery bombardment or bombing, and this suggests that we could not even raise our troops on time. Why did Cherevichenko and Zakharov avoid such losses, did not think?

                        Martirosyan did not serve in the army, so he hardly knows how everything is arranged in it, especially in the higher military bodies. It would be better if he wrote why the NKVD did not cope with the task of liquidating German agents in the pre-war period, but for some reason no one wants to investigate this painful issue. And because of the sabotage and espionage of German agents, we suffered so many losses in 1941 that we sometimes wonder if Beria really was a foreign spy, which he was accused of in 1953.

      Given the date of his appointment as chief of the General Staff, and the fact that he was the commander of the district for a little more than six months, many of the accusations against Zhukov generally look ridiculous, if only because he had no experience at all in the central office. Who pulled him to this post, of course, is an interesting question, and who told Stalin that he would manage, is also important. But I consider hanging all dogs on Zhukov for the failure of the Red Army in 1941 just mean-spirited, although he could have influenced the decisions made. Only who would listen to him with such experience as the leadership of the General Staff, and given the fact that he actually succeeded Shaposhnikov after six months from the moment he left, and that was authority for Stalin. Those who have experience in the service are well aware that such a career takeoff of Zhukov could not but affect the activities of the General Staff, and the decisions made in the People’s Commissariat of Defense, and this all subsequently affected our losses.

The removal of sights, all 122 x mm howitzers, it’s not just a kondachka, it needs permission from at least GAU RKKA, and Yakovlev had to coordinate these actions with at least Zhukov!

      Why didn’t they gain her then? They even had four months in reserve. It was not for them to fight with the Westerners, where they surrendered without a fight, but here in the first blows, they already got the shot. And immediately all of their grandiose plans came to fruition.
      For a longer period, the Nazis did not have the means.
      They just had the money, but there was no ability to fight in large territories and with a huge number of people. Since the Westerners practically did not fight with them, but voluntarily surrendered (Except for the British).
      And the Germans held out until 1945 due to the ability to fight.
      They survived due to the fact that they were supported by other countries and provided with everything necessary.

        What about a large number of people? .And estimate how many MILLION “goodwill” from among Russian, Ukrainians. Baltic states. Poles (including voluntarily surrendered) fought on their side, for example, the Lokot Republic.
        And the same French lost, first of all, because of the “fifth column”, which penetrated the ministries. Headquarters. And you think from a good life Hitler agreed to the Vichy Republic. And Beria was forced to lead the defense of the Caucasus with the formations attached to him from former border guards and the NKVDshnikov.
        By the way, back in 1942, the British considered Timoshenko the best commander, whose fault in the failure of the Kharkov-Barvenkov operation was minimal.

          in the fourth month they already "stalled".
          So it was practically, they have already received pugs. From this they did not win. And no three months there would help them win the war.
          And figure out how many MILLION "goodwill" from among the Russians, Ukrainians. Baltic states. Poles (including voluntarily surrendered) fought on their side, for example, the Lokot Republic.
          I figured it out! With the help of these forces and reinforcements, they lasted until 1945.
          And the same French lost, first of all, because of the “fifth column”, which penetrated the ministries. Headquarters.
          Nobody fought there to lose or win, without a fight they surrendered their country (with the exception of the partisans), hiding behind the fact that they allegedly did not want to destroy their country.
          By the way, back in 1942, the British considered Timoshenko the best commander, whose fault in the failure of the Kharkov-Barvenkov operation was minimal.
          As a strategist and colonel, he was good, but ordinary soldiers always win victories and assaults.

            We figured it out by 1944 and take it away. Only the Hungarians stood to the end.

            Partisan movement. As a real force, there were only in Yugoslavia and in Greece.
            By the way, I recommend everyone to read: Georgy Ivanov-Shainovich - the Russian-Polish national hero of Greece.
            The assaults are won by real soldiers, yes, but with an EXPLANATORY commander, little blood.
            Take the assault on the most powerful land fortress of Keniksberg in the shortest possible time and (a unique case), when the losses of the attackers were much less than those of the defenders.
            I think that very few website visitors could communicate with participants in the Second World War (and not only), for example, 20 years after the end of the war.
            They (then boys). Having begun reading N. Shpanova, sincerely believed that we would be in Berlin two weeks after the start of the Second World War.
            By the way, Moscow was thoroughly mined (just in case), which also says a lot.
            And last, Tymoshenko was a marshal, not a colonel.

              So be it Nikolay hi and I’ll explain these words too.
              Estimated, and by 1944 and take it away.
              What to take away? If possible, in more detail.
              And I don’t believe in the tales of General De Gaulle about the French poppies - there were several sabotage groups led by the British.
              It is not clear what you wrote? hi If you had guerrillas introduced, then yes, the British sponsored them (with everything necessary), and the strike force consisted of the French. Whoever stands there and directs these movements, but their country, they surrendered without a fight and this is a fact. Their partisans, at least somehow tried to resist, than to sit idle at all.
              Partisan movement. As a real force, there were only in Yugoslavia and in Greece.
              Yes, of course, the Frenchman was very far away for them, well, at least they tried to resist it.
              By the way, I recommend everyone to read: Georgy Ivanov-Shainovich - the Russian-Polish national hero of Greece.
              After the 1917 revolution, there were a lot of such heroes who moved to live in other countries.
              The assaults are won by real soldiers, yes, but with an EXPLANATORY commander, little blood.
              Yes, this also exists, only those who, together with the soldiers, sat in the trenches and led the operation on the front line, and not from the headquarters in the rear.
              I think that very few website visitors could communicate with participants in the Second World War (and not only), for example, 20 years after the end of the war.
              What’s this all about? many still have grandparents who went through this war. Well, I understand that what you had to introduce, partly it is.
              They (then boys). Having begun reading N. Shpanova, sincerely believed that we would be in Berlin two weeks after the start of the Second World War.
              So it was, the morale of the soldier, always needs to be maintained. I hope you understand what I had to introduce.
              By the way, Moscow was thoroughly mined (just in case), which also says a lot.
              There was, but in time the Germans, got cuffs and fled immediately back.
              And last, Tymoshenko was a marshal, not a colonel.
              Reply

        Well, yes, the limes were simply screwed from Dunkirk on all available craft and gave it as the greatest help!
        Rommel (not the most talented general) drove them across Africa as lousy in a bathhouse, until they cut off the supplies of ammunition to the German-Italian troops by sea and brought a cloud of armored vehicles to themselves.
        In Southeast Asia, the Japanese inserted an enema after an enema of Brita, drove to Singapore, where they eventually heroically ... capitulated.

            They just got lucky - they stayed behind a puddle. If it were not for the English Channel, they would have repeated the fate of France. At the beginning of the war, the British did not even have a decent tank. But Hitler did not dare to transfer troops across the strait. Yes, and Goering pissed him off, promising to bring Britain to its knees by bombing. But the limes here fought fiercely, that's a fact.
            Plus, radar was already in its infancy and they learned about the approach of the bombers in advance, which gave time to raise the planes to intercept. In this situation, they had an advantage. And Goering retreated.

      They would have fought a lot if all of Europe, including neutral Sweden, hadn’t worked for them, and even here they kind of recalled that the striped type Ford also threw them, but they were led past Nuremberg. No army is capable of anything without rear support; these are not the Middle Ages.

        Intoxicated by the victories and conquests in Europe, the nation of "supermen" imagines itself to be more exceptional and has the right to oppress, enslave, humiliate, rob and destroy other peoples. When the USSR realized their true intentions, then our people began to gather with all their will for a fierce confrontation and began to smash these "supermen".

    There was another nuance here, the Nazis were going to destroy us and not just win, it became clear from the first days of the war, the executioners from the SS very clearly demonstrated this.
    The world of capital brought in an irreconcilable battle, the bloody regime of the Nazis, for which he indirectly advocated both himself and the World of the Communist International, expressed by the world's first socialist state-USSR.
    So the battle was really not comparable with the Hitlerite military Blitzkrieg in Europe.

The capitalists of the world were afraid of communist ideas, national socialism was closer to them, they turned a blind eye to the many cruelties of the Nazis, the clash of two systems it was inevitable, but the winning prize - the territory and resources of the USSR would be huge, it was not in vain that Hitler tried to agree with Britain on an alliance against the USSR. The British were safe and probably not in vain, believing that the two systems would weaken and destroy each other, leaving all their laurels to the Anglo-Saxons, otherwise the Red Banner would probably have been in London, on the parliament building .., Hitler scared away many with his treachery and manners of a tyrant ...

                  Remember: wars, except civil ones, are waged either for resources, or for territories, or for spheres of influence. Everything else (ideology, religion) is just an excuse. Bolshevism, a bloody dictator like Hussein, "fraternal peoples" - this is nothing more than an occasion. Further: in the late 30s, the standard of living in Germany was far ahead of the Soviet and the ideas of National Socialism were much closer to the Germans than communist ones. And leave the tales about capitalists - communists to young pioneers.

                    In fact, the reactionary forces pulled out the executioner's old tool from dusty chests, and the fact that large global industrial and financial corporations are behind this, I have no doubt that essentially politicians are only talking heads, this main component of the current world order.

    Of course, they understood that, despite the whole mess in the army, which led to the loss of almost all aviation in the west and retreat, they could not even cross the border in the north, and they rushed to the ears of the Romanians in the south. One Brest fortress gave them reason to think, not counting the rather strong resistance of the border outposts. In the first two weeks of the offensive, the German generals were very puzzled.
    Indeed, none of the historians really analyzed the battles of the first two months of the war with all heroic positives and we will not be hypocrites, negative manifestations of our soldiers and commanders. At my very place, three uncles went to the front, only one returned, the rest were missing.

As the late Pole said, this will be done by themselves and at their own expense. Therefore, they prepared, actively encouraging their greed and unscrupulousness, and then used the country's leadership, the intelligentsia, actively encouraging the conversion of power into loot. For the successful implementation of the strategy, the role of the Communist Party, the state security organs, the educational system were introduced a system of educational services that stamps “advanced consumers” without honor and conscience, social and international ties of society and the common community of people are destroyed, estate inherited relationships are created, historical and cultural-moral values ​​are replaced, the issue is resolved, the state is destroyed. So these same people who killed the country and betrayed their ideals and oath, all of them are still in power, at the “feeding trough” as part of the colonial administration, so the country’s robbery continues, demographic collapse, the territories are being cleansed, so the seemingly obvious ones are not resolved questions hostile to the existence of the state; there is no such purpose to make a great country out of neocolonies. This will be monitored and not allowed through external management organizations such as the Central Bank and the Higher School of Economics, for this Gref also “drowns” for digital total control of all activities of each person and country without exception (it would seem where is Sberbank and where is IT technology, only Sberbank Central Bank and beyond the chain overseas), however, the overseas "masters" in the metropolis, seemingly being the trendsetters of everything and everything in IT technologies, do not even stutter about this, this applies only to the lackeys who are untimely.

    It is necessary to restore all the names of those who died in the early days of the war. And those who went missing. The border guards feat is well known to everyone. When there was an Arab-Israeli conflict, our head of the outpost built and warned. He must open the package. And then we must join the ranks of the Soviet Army. This was a new vision. We still do not know where our fathers, uncles, grandfathers died. My uncle went missing in the first days of the war. Another uncle was awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union (posthumously). Uncle himself showed me the newspaper. "As you see, I turned out to be alive. And I was awarded the Order of the Red Star." And he thought it was the right decision.

      The Red Army and the Wehrmacht, the only ones had an understanding of how the future maneuver war would be waged. Defense is a counterattack in the first place. The Germans thrashed Franks and Angles with their defensive gaze into dust in 3 weeks without superiority in the quantity and quality of equipment. And all of these defensive orders in our 41st Germans stupidly traveled a couple of tens of kilometers and we got another boiler.

And the fact that the united Europe in the 41st opposed the USSR, no one noticed.

    The Soviet people in the Second World War defended their lifestyle, political system, their ideals. The people, the army and the party were indeed united. God forbid there will be a Great War now, whether the people will defend a regime whose officials regret the lack of a license to shoot citizens, or dealers sitting on a gas-oil pipe, is a big question. If the people do not support the government, then the Almaty, Poseidon, Prometheus will not help.

          They fought because they saw that Stalin's two sons were also on the front line, shoulder to shoulder with ordinary people, and the sons fought other leaders. In this matter, the country was united.

    - "The Nazis in the early days of the war realized that the promised" blitzkrieg "did not work - one thing was a victorious march on paper, another thing was real battles with the Red Army."
    - Many details of the battles of several dozen border outposts are still unknown, as well as the fate of many border defenders. Among the irretrievable losses of border guards in battles in June 1941, more than 90% were “missing”
    Not a single outpost (NONE) has wavered, stepped back, or surrendered!
    During the month of the war with France, Germany lost 90 thousand soldiers, and in the first day of the war with the USSR - 360 thousand.

    At the beginning of the war, the Red Army usturail the Wehrmacht in the main: The Red Army hopelessly lost to the Germans by the number of troops simultaneously entering the battle. That is, a German machine debugged in two years of war primitively smashed the "raw" units of the Red Army in parts. Unfortunately, we were doomed to lose in the initial period of the war.

    The units of the Red Army, commanded by miracle personnel officers who survived after the reprisals, even fought very effectively in the first weeks of the war.

      God, what other repressions, and without them there were imaginary problems? The number of the Red Army since 1938 grew explosively, stupidly there weren’t enough officers, plus the low level of basic education of the Soviet population of those years - there wasn’t anyone to cook from (I don’t even say who to plant for tank aircraft). The Americans "in a partisan way" (in the sense of stupidly without frills and fantasies took the mass) in the 44th they fought (and just that - see the Ardennes rained down), because there was a similar problem, there were more divisions in the 44th than battalions in the 40- m

        According to the mind, after so many signals about the possible start of the war in May-June 41, the spacecraft should have been fully armed in the trenches since spring, with a supply of weapons, ammunition, fuel, and ammunition. Tanks were supposed to be pulled into the border and near areas (we had 25 thousand of them, almost 20 thousand were operational), at least 10 thousand. Moreover, with a supply of fuel and ammunition for a lot of gas stations. The same with aviation, artillery, etc.
        So that the troops could fight, and not throw tanks without fuel and shells ...

          Well, they would have pulled it even more ... and what (you might think, they didn’t pull it or didn’t try)? The directions of the main blows didn’t really reveal, just would have surrounded even more at the very beginning. Plus, when it was necessary, the Germans broke through any defense on the forehead, that Maginot, that the Isthmus of Istria ... When the Germans in France only took more trucks than in the entire Soviet national economy, they could not be "maneuvered". But the bare tanks do not channel ... only at the expense of them and their loss and hitting them back and forth the Germans could not completely destroy the Red Army in the border battle.
          In the 41st there was no solution to avoid defeat .... for this, another country was needed (industry, population, army, etc.).

            In the first month, the spacecraft lost more than the Germans destroyed.
            In addition, I did not write that "focus on the border."
            Essno, to concentrate both at the border and in the near and far border areas with fuel and shell reserves.
            But then we had T-34 and Kv-1 and Kv-2 in total more than their T-4.

          And thus, they would give German intelligence a complete picture of our positions and forces involved in the cover plan to repulse the attack. I'm not saying that when troops sit in the trenches for such a long time, this not only dampens, but also disrupts the entire educational process. The trouble is not that the troops did not take up positions in the spring, but that a few hours before the attack they did not appear where they should have been located according to the plan for covering the district. This was the biggest tragedy of the first hours of the war, with which the chain of tragic events of 1941 began.

    Marshal Malinovsky’s recently declassified diary speaks well of the big losses in the first months of the war, saying that the Red Army commanders from the regiment commander to the front commander had no idea how to conduct combat operations, there was a mess around. In my opinion, this is one of the main causes of colossal losses at the beginning of the war.

        Of course, we do not know about the Tukhachevsky conspiracy. Not a lordly thing is to know. Well, think about it - he was preparing a coup. What a trifle! Should we liberals worry about such trifles, we will eat sweetly under any authority. So?

        If we compare the composition of the Red Army with other armies, it turns out that the Red Army was the richest military commander. In 1939, there were 1 privates on the 6st officer of the Red Army, 29 in the Wehrmacht, 15 in the English army, 22 in the French, 19 in the Japanese.

        But if it weren’t for Stalin’s repressions, then we would have 6 officers per ordinary. And then Hitler would not dare to attack - an officer with a rifle is much worse than an ordinary. Valuable thought, strategic. You would secretly inform her current MO. And what - 6 generals per fighter and all - who lift the tail against Russia, pulling it and whining run away.

          In my opinion, you simply do not take into account that we had a large number of formations and units of reduced composition, including in the border districts. The country could not afford to keep all the spacecraft deployed deployed in full time, even in peacetime — no money was pledged for this in the budget. Yes, and 1939 is not typical of the Red Army, if only because it was at that time that a sharp increase in the armed forces of the USSR began, and growth continued constantly until June 22.

    Few people know that, under the direct instructions of Stalin, the foundations of future workshops and factories, which should have been evacuated in the event of war, were already laid deep in the rear. And not just evacuated, but deployed and launched as soon as possible in order to uninterruptedly supply the front with ammunition, weapons, tanks, airplanes.
    Over the 30 years, at the initiative and insistence of I.V. Stalin, the process of moving industry to the East was organized, the Northern Sea Route was mastered, a network of railways and highways was built, strategic channels were built, new air routes were developed, the Northern and Pacific Fleets and world's largest submarine fleet
    it is possible to deny that Stalin was an authoritative person for millions, either by meekness or by malice.

    1. The pogrom in the Red Army in 1937-1938 is the main cause of all the disasters of 1941-1942. When the units are led by people who have jumped through 3-4 steps, do not wait for good. Figures for retired personnel today, thank God, are in the public domain (a completely egregious picture has developed in aviation). True, no one has yet done an analysis of the level of commanders that took shape on June 22, 1941. Indirectly, one could evaluate by analyzing data on their official growth over the past 4-5 years.
    2. This also includes the total absence / fear of initiative (including repressions) and flexibility at the regiment level and above. This problem remained relevant for almost the entire first half of the war (including 1942). Here we must add the actual dual power at the time of the outbreak of hostilities (July 1941 - October 1942)
    All other problems, for example, the lack of normal, well-functioning interaction between the arms of the armed forces, primarily aviation, infantry, artillery, and armored forces, are again based on the first 2 points. Poor communication, lack of ability to maneuver troops (concentration and flank coverage), lack of a quick assessment of the current situation - all this would be resolved if there was a properly trained command staff.
    At the first stage, of colossal importance was the lack of reliable air cover of troops from the actions of German aviation throughout the entire depth of the database.

    For those creatures who are now starting to tryndet about the benefit of purges - about the tragedy of the Red Army is well written in the famous book of O.F. Souvenir "1937 Tragedy of the Red Army"
