He would shoot any solder that retreated!
Did I read (or misunderstand) someone calling America ‘primitive’?
The country that put the only men on the moon and all other countries want to be like us… yeah, we are primitive!

I remember on several occasions the father would get angry at me for what reason I could not determine. later I found out thru a friend that he had lived thru the Siege of Leningrad as a small boy – and had lost his sister and I believe his father to starvation. What he was angry at me for was, as an American, I was not finishing all the food that his wife cooked for me.

The scars from things like that follow a person all their lives. Imagine eating sawdust. That’s what they did to survive. I’d be angry too.

I love the movie, Come and See by Elem Klimov.

It’s no Hollywood-American movie, thankfully. It’s much more realistic of the suffering and effort put forth, far before the Allied response, and far-far before the US response.

One day my wife and I hope to visit Russia!

As far as ‘maintaining the population’ goes, given Hitler’s opinion of the slavs, I doubt he would bother his head over maintaining them. Check out how slave labor was “maintained”.

It is probably correct to observe that Hitler did not throw as much of his forces at Leningrad as he could have. But that is because his primary target was Moscow and he was in a hurry to get there. Luckily, he didn’t make it.

Even more fortunate was his postponing of the starting date for the Russian campaign over the objections of the General Staff because he wanted revenge on England (London) for the minor, but symbolic bombing of Berlin. It also resulted in the destruction of aircraft that would have been handy in Russia. If he had followed the General Staff’s advice, General Winter might not have stopped him short of Moscow.

My Father inlaw was 8yrs old during the seige of Leningrad. He worked with a well known Professor from the Acadamy of Zoology in St. Petersburg. The Professor’s widow has the head and a foot from this Elephant in her house. It is very interesting to hear the stories of those who survived the seige. Thanks ER for another great post.
