      Unfortunately, in the strategic plan, that is, in the lengthy time, the Germans defeat us. To do this, just look at the map of the Slavic state of the 8-12 centuries and the current one. We lost all of Europe, although before it almost all belonged to us, the Slavs. And the Saxons were our allies. But in the tactical, that is, in the short-term, we always beat them and we will beat them.

      We lose because we are too fragmented and rarely unite together and because we are too disorderly. But this is our strength for tactical victories.

      In general, only the Russians, that is, the descendants of the Eastern Slavs led by the Slavic Slavs of the Rus, were able to create a state that has more or less resisted the Germans for 13 centuries. And the history of the USSR shows that just Russians think strategically, therefore they are quite capable of resisting the Germans and their current incarnation - the so-called Anglo-Saxons (although neither Angles nor Saxons are among them :)). If not for this eternal indifference of ours ...

        you wrote some kind of porridge

        1 Germany, as we know it, was actually created by Bismarck under the leadership of the enemies of Russia and as its potential adversary, before Bismarck it is some kind of mess from a pile of small states

        2, unlike Europe, in Russia there is a really working mechanism for creating a multinational state, I somehow do not see the German-French or Austrian-Italian state
        these are different nations
        but the state based on the countries that emerged on the site of the destroyed USSR, I quite even see, maybe we are similar to each other mentally, we have gathered for centuries into one state entity, the easiest way is to call the republics of the USSR with the words "Russian world"

            "Khrushchevs" were built much later (for the sake of historical truth).
            But the revival of Stalingrad began IMMEDIATELY after the expulsion of the German invaders and their satellites. The whole wounded country helped the revival of the hero city.

            Plans to build affordable housing emerged under Stalin. Khrushchev simply implemented this project in a simplified form. Pay attention to the 12-storey towers that look like "Khrushchevs" - they began to be built under Stalin. Khrushchevs is a simplified design of these towers.

            In general, this idea, as I understand it, was taken from the Germans. They built their living quarters for the workers like this. As a temporary solution, as intended, there was a good solution to resettle people from the barracks and basements. But the temporary, unfortunately, became long-term because of Khrushchev, who destroyed the Stalinist model of the economy. Only under the late Brezhnev did they begin to build high-comfort housing with great speed and create plans for the resettlement of people from the "Khrushchevs". Did not make it. In Moscow, Luzhkov partially fulfilled this plan, but in extremely insufficient numbers. And now they completely abandoned it - suddenly the bourgeoisie won't have enough money for Kurshaveli;)

                The answer is not correct. The idea is French, I agree. But the story is like this - Stalin learned about the construction of cheap housing in France and called Professor Karasev from the construction industry and set the task of going to France and see what was happening. and then the construction of factories for the production of panels began. But, by the beginning of the construction of houses, the Great Man died. And this "bald asshole" Nikita rightly attributed the authorship to himself ... Such cases

        So the same Japanese do not hide that they adopted the Stalinist model of the economy. It was she who helped them make an economic breakthrough. But Khrushchev abandoned it and the political system, concentrating power in the hands of the nascent partocracy, so the country rolled into the abyss.

        By the way, the Stalinist model of the economy came up with Ascension. And it was his death (some believe that he was intentionally killed with the participation of Beria, Khrushchev and Malenkov, although Voznesensky was undoubtedly guilty, but not so much as to shoot him, and Stalin did not want to) that became a turning point in the sunset of the USSR, as I now seen.

      As I understand it, they also knocked out the color of the people at the beginning of the war, as we do. It is not for nothing that the British and Americans pushed us together with their foreheads — precisely so that we would destroy each other. And in war, the strongest people always die, so the gene pool is knocked out. Any war is genocide, in modern language. For him, it is necessary to punish more instigators, not performers.

      Do not compare a real war with a feature film, this is at least stupid. I repeat, THIS IS A FEATURE FILM, not a documentary !!! The film is called "Stalingrad", not "The Battle of Stalingrad". And this film is very popular and beats all ratings. a person is not difficult, it is difficult to take and shoot a good film.
      In the Rambo film, one soldier killed almost the entire Soviet army, and everyone looked and smiled at nothing.
      Have you ever been to the cinema at this film? I was honestly with me, an adult man got a tear, women came out with tears, I saw it personally !!! If you show how it was in reality, not all of it will stand ..

        I fully support you! Bondarchuk’s film is not primarily about the battle, but about the people who participated in this battle one way or another, about a small episode in this colossal battle. Moreover - the film is framed as a retelling by the Russian rescuer of those memories that his mother shared with him! By the way, he continues the bright tradition of old Soviet films about the war, which were actually about people in the war, and not about the war itself.
        And then - at the beginning of the film they show, albeit very briefly, a panorama of the burning city, which, incidentally, is one-to-one that copies what we see in the photographs in this article, the question remains - what do people not like?

        So the whole point is that when the word "Stalingrad", the concepts of "love", "relationships between people", etc. do not pop up in people's heads. "The bloodiest battle" pops up in people's minds. Therefore the result: disappointment. IMHO.

          That you are right, BUT! Is it strange that people don’t have an episode like Pavlov’s House? But the analogy with the naked eye is visible!

          And as for me, so "bloody battle" can be perfectly seen in any plotless American action movie.
          And personally, as a representative of the younger generation, I am already disgusted with films about "Shooting, Explosions and Guts" and I want to watch films that would show the characters of people, because war is the best way to reveal a human character!

        ......................................................
        The fact is that the air defense during the defense of Stalingrad was very significant and flying low was not only not safe, but also forbidden. Our German partners (as it’s now customary to say), very punctual people, it’s said that they didn’t fly below 5 thousand, they didn’t fly, but this is already in progress ... And at the very beginning near Stalingrad they suffered such losses from dense anti-aircraft fire from the ground that they didn’t think enough.

          They flew a lot. A bunch of materials on this topic, including photos of diving Junkers-88/87. The most massive bombing of the city of August 23 is known. About 2000 sorties of the 88th and 87th !!!
          And the decrease in German air activity by October-November 42 was explained not by powerful air defense, but by the outline of the front edge, which simply could not be guessed or marked in the city.

          Somewhere there, with my back to the Volga, near Beketovka, my father is in the 62 army.
          About the dive of German planes: according to my father, the Ju-87 attacked our positions, including from minimal heights, and how. Since that time, he had an injury to his little finger on his hand - sitting at the bottom of the trench with a degtyarev light machine gun, he tried to drive off the Yu-87 diving on them in a long line, aiming at the very "sniffer" along the route. At the same time, unsuccessfully, in the heat of battle, he grabbed the machine gun so that the bolt handle hit the finger during firing. German fighters also scoffed, sneaking at low level. Our planes were practically not seen until December 1942. They defended themselves from German aviation, mainly by anti-aircraft guns, where they were, and more with their small arms.
          I noticed how the wounded German officer, who was awaiting evacuation, was packed and equipped. All his belongings are neatly stacked nearby. Ordnung, however! We can conclude about their medical service.

            During World War II, Hitler was very "concerned" about the health of his soldiers on the Eastern Front. Maybe that's why the German army fought three Russian winters in demi-season overcoats. Each soldier of the Wehrmacht was given monthly bags of dust, so that bedbugs and lice would not distract them from the main one, and a pack of condoms so that the brave descendants of the knight dogs would not pick up a “French cold”.

            But Dust absolutely did not take a small bloodsucker. Nimble parasites could only be overcome by a Russian bathhouse with its one hundred degrees and a frying pan for disinfection of uniforms.

            However, in the German army the state did not even have a hint of the bath and laundry units that were in the Red Army. But the Germans had available mobile sausage, where they smoked sausages. How can you fight without them ?!

            But the presence of gluttonous creatures in German riding breeches was half the trouble. Lice are known to be carriers of the rash. The German army throughout the war was a huge breeding ground for typhus and other infections. So, in one of the secret orders for the 9th Army (Army Group Center) dated December 15, 1942, it was stated: “Recently, in the area of ​​the army, the number of cases of typhus has almost reached the number of wounded.” In peak Wehrmacht, the Red Army went through a war without epidemics of infectious diseases.

        Mmm, can you ask - where is the debauchery? Just so no "strawberries" and did not show, which is undoubtedly a big plus. And what was shown - so sorry, how else to show that the German "animal" raped the poor girl?

            But this is just designed for the Western viewer - let him see how the "noble Teutonic knights behaved without fear and reproach"! Let the Gayropeans see - their nowadays praised overly brave civilized soldiers of the Wehrmacht are animals. Do not forget that the film will be shown at them, and poking their noses in their own G is the right move.

        Dear Dovmont - let me ask you - have you watched the film? It's just that I just saw in this film the undisguised trolling of the Germans - which is what only the captain, twice almost alone and with nothing to do with the failed assault on the house, in which a handful of our fighters sat down! It is clear from the film - that nemchura is capable of blaming the civilian population with a bang, but when faced with the courage of ours, he instantly gives in, and why say "vomit"?

    In the photographs there are two fairly fascist pilots:

    ERNST KUPFER - On 6 on November 1943, the Non-111H-6 bomber with Kupfer (as a passenger) on board flew from Thessaloniki back to Germany, but by the appointed time he had not arrived at the airport. Only on November 17 were its fragments found on the slope of Belasica Mountain, 60 km north of Thessaloniki. All six people aboard the Heinkel, including Lieutenant Kupfer, were killed. The commission that conducted the investigation found that the most likely cause of the disaster was that, in bad weather conditions, the Heinkel pilot deviated from the course and the plane crashed into a mountainside.

    BOININ HUBERTUS - December 15 1943 was shot down in battle with the Yak-9. A plane in 13.39 crashed 7 km east of Gorodok, and von Bonin died.

        Yes, you are right - the current actors cannot compare with the actors who played in "They Fought for the Motherland", but in "Stalingrad" they really try to play their roles, and most importantly, they play MUCH better than all these Bezrukovs, Mashkovs, etc. .d. which play themselves, and do not even try to get used to the role. And by the way - no one sparkles with genitals in the film, there are no pink snot either.
        Of course, "Stalingrad" cannot be compared with the old Soviet films, BUT! - it is AN ORDER better than all our modern films about the war, and most importantly - it perfectly conveys the atmosphere, so I strongly advise you to watch it, especially in 3D - here it really works, you directly feel yourself next to ours "in the same trench"

    the German in the photo competently holds the MP-38 for the fore-end, it was just as recommended to hold this weapon, and not as in the Soviet films for the store.

        They didn’t want to open the butt of MP-40 in Soviet cinema. It is possible that a submachine gun pressed to their face would not hide the brutal expression on the face of the fascist ... and in the new “Stalingrad” (judging by the trailer) they do not want to open the butt.

        this is understandable, since the caliber of 9 mm gives tangible returns, without a spread butt, aiming shooting is impossible. That is why the MP-41 was designed. By the way, the shoulder support of the MP-39 migrated unchanged to AKMS, copy to copy.

    Unfortunately, in the strategic plan, that is, in the lengthy time, the Germans defeat us. To do this, just look at the map of the Slavic state of the 8-12 centuries and the current one. We lost all of Europe, although before it almost all belonged to us, the Slavs. And the Saxons were our allies. But in the tactical, that is, in the short-term, we always beat them and we will beat them.

    We lose because we are too fragmented and rarely unite together and because we are too disorderly. But this is our strength for tactical victories.

    In general, only the Russians, that is, the descendants of the Eastern Slavs led by the Slavic Slavs of the Rus, were able to create a state that has more or less resisted the Germans for 13 centuries. And the history of the USSR shows that just Russians think strategically, therefore they are quite capable of resisting the Germans and their current incarnation - the so-called Anglo-Saxons (although neither Angles nor Saxons are among them :)). If not for this eternal indifference of ours ...

      the truth through the eyes and lens of our photographers.

      And then this "truth" was settled in a prisoner of war camp in the small town of Krasnogorsk near Moscow, but not in a common barrack, but in a separate house, my grandfather, being a boy, repeatedly saw the "truth" while walking under an escort of machine gunners, albeit from afar ...

        hi Eugene ,
        It’s good that we preserved this truth to Nuremberg, because we thought that the worms were already eating Paulus, but no, get it and sign it.

          Well, we don’t mean evil people at all, we well contain prisoners: here, grandfather recalled how they tattered little boys with small and terribly sour apples from wild apple trees (there was a former landowner garden, they’ve already cut it all out) and threw prisoners behind the camp’s fence, also often they threw frogs there (the prisoners ’meat could be said to have no meat at all), and the prisoners threw them in response - CHOCOLATES !!! So, so the captured Germans and samurai lived in captivity with us.
          Or here's another story - great-grandmother and great-grandfather lived in the same city, the Germans built houses for them (they still stand - purely "European"-looking houses laughing ) and one German who was running the stove and they turned out to be a military doctor, and when my grandmother's sister had an abscess on her finger, he cured him very quickly. And when the "Fritz" was already leaving home for Germany, the great-grandmother gathered vegetables for him, crackers, in general, not such a frail "ration" and this German just knelt in front of her, so this is the kind of people we are smile

            I agree, we are a hardworking people.
            The same Paulus when asked at the N. process of nutrition in captivity said:
            - I eat better than Soviet children.

    With a shudder, bitterness and pain, he looked at the photo where the Nazis roamed the ruins and refugees left the war zone. I lost my many relatives during the war; they defended our Motherland. After the 7 class, he began to study at a military school and already in 19 years he was a lieutenant. The school was taught a course of aircraft engines by specialists who prepared our TB-3 in July and August 1941 of the year for the bombing of Berlin. We young cadets still could not understand why the Supreme Commander I.V. Stalin instructed simply to use high-explosive bombs to bombard the capital of these monsters, and not to destroy them with biological weapons that were in the USSR. Then there would not be these terrible photographs where our compatriots are represented in suffering. The fascists for their atrocities and for the attack on the USSR would have to be all destroyed. I will not cite facts about our retaliatory strikes; some of them are worthy of respect as retaliation.

    There is also a purely German film "Stalingrad" in several episodes. There is generally shown hell. If the Germans make such films about themselves, then they have been applied very well.
    About Bondarchuk's "Stalingrad". I will watch on TV. I understand that this can be a modern film language. That it is now necessary to shoot so that young people understand. But there is one but. Here are everyone who went and looked, what is the main feeling you have left after the painting? The abundance of colorful scenes and special effects break through the psychological defense of a person and the idea hidden behind them freely penetrates the subconscious. Judging by the way the viewers come out, the psychological impact was very strong. So, what idea remains in the minds here? Tell those who watched.

      in the German film Stalingrad the image of the German soldier is too romanticized, heroized, more like something like All Quiet on the Western Front, this film is biased and overly pompous.

      The idea is simple - we won’t win! - this is the main idea! We will fight for a simple house more fiercely than the enemy for our own capital.
      In general, there are many "ideological layers" in the film.

    The selection of photographs is excellent, although it tells of the most terrible watches experienced by our people. Volgograd residents, you not only live in a beautiful corner of Russia, but, indeed, in a heroic place. I regret that I did not travel with my parents along the Volga Mother. They say indescribable beauty!

    PieS: it only remains to add that I, personally, grew up in the Oktyabrsky district of Minsk, on the street of Lieutenant Kizhevatov - the hero of the USSR - the defender of the hero-fortress Brest, and our street ended in cliffs, steep as the banks of the Volga near Stalingrad. Now I live in Melbourne, Australia, and I have flour warehouses in my area - just like in these photos, it should be added that the neighboring area is called Totenham - consonant with the German tank division Totenkompf. And then there is an abandoned power plant in Perth, this is already in Western Australia - well, very similar to the one in the photo in this article. Well, or like in the movie "Conspiracy Theory" with Mel Gibson.

    By the way, my family, one might say, was attacked by the Baska bar (const. Stuck - the Styx River - the border between the dead world and us - the knock, shorter than a half ter-geis-?), Even almost knocked out, but in time I pulled the trigger on the trigger, so that all crews safely, not emergency landed, knocked out by the Nazis, but successfully landed under the guidance of our command!

    Again, the army and the people of Red Square is full,
    And the sea of ​​people is noisy, a wave is following the wave.
    Together with her mother - Moscow, at the ancient walls of the Kremlin
    Gathered, came to the holiday all of Soviet land.

    Chorus:

    Go ahead, in spite of adversity!
    Friendly pressure, stronger rise!
    I am sure the Leader with such a people,
    Mighty people with such a Leader!

    Recall the years of fire, recall the forty-first year,
    In the days of great trials, our people were a hero
    And now, as before, he is unanimously following Stalin,
    Heroically fulfilling a plan of unprecedented work.

    Chorus:

    Go ahead, in spite of adversity!
    Friendly pressure, stronger rise!
    I am sure the Leader with such a people,
    Mighty people with such a Leader!

    Defeating all obstacles both in work and in battle,
    We carry, like a banner, our sonorous song.
    And it sounds sweet in a chorus, wide and good,
    Our truth, our strength, our brave soul.

    Chorus:

    Go ahead, in spite of adversity!
    Friendly pressure, stronger rise!
    I am sure the Leader with such a people,
    Mighty people with such a Leader!

    Well, our ASIA brand would like to say: give me a crab, a seraphim, or do you have them connected as a stadium (K) AAI on West Laiki?

    Our legendary IL-2 fly on a combat mission!

    Now, if so, and consumer goods with the Russian auto industry knew how to keep secrets on the head of the enemy, like a military man, you see, the German auto market would not be 32 percent full (full in Belarusian also means "taken prisoner") Japanese women, and our high-quality and not hostile-knocking and drumming auto consumer goods.

    PiS: By the way, it has nothing to do with the TV series "Soldiers"; besides, it is unlikely that by a miracle (!) there will be surviving paratroopers hanging out "not orientated" neo-Slavs from 9-floor balconies, so that they, urgently, recall the hymns of the Great Power!
