Soviet Soldiers As Nazis Saw Them

Posted on May 17, 2011 by team


When World War II just broke out, the Germans didn't expect at all their enemy would resist so much. Their soldiers, brave, initiative and dedicated, faced the great endurance and incredible strength of the Russians. But not only these qualities helped the latter win the war....

Here's what German soldiers said about their enemies.

      Amen bracie. Nigdy nie zapomnę jak mi Dziadek opowiadał co ta dzicz robiła w Polsce. Kradli, gwałcili, zabijali. Polak dla tych skurwieli był wrogiem. 17 września gnoje nas napadli zamiast pomóc. Rusek nigdy nie będzie przyjacielem dla nas!

    The real truth, tho, is that Russian soldiers were a bunch of wild cavemen, drunk on vodka, whose first contact with western civilization was often when they fought against Germans or when they attacked Poland or Finland. Also, the Russians were not really that brave – first of all, they were drunk most of the time, and second – there were special NKVD officers in the back of their lines (especially during attack) who would simply shoot anyone running in the wrong direction. So the soldiers ran to confront the enemy as this gave them a slim chance of survival. Running away meant death either instantly or in the camp/gulag later on. Also, please remember that Russians would loot, rape and destroy eveyrthing they saw on their way. When they crossed Poland to get to Germany, they simply robbed everybody unfortunate enough to be on their way. Also, in Germany they not only fought Nazi soldiers, they also raped every woman they saw and robbed every person.

      Many Russians were very good soldiers. For example, my father knew gentleman who destroyed 7 !!! nazi tanks with one 76-mm cannon only during short-term german atack. By the way, the last 3 he ruined, being badly injured. Just imagine !!!

      Thanks for pointing this out. Everyone should bear this in mind. These are propaganda photos, nothing more. Russians habituially overrate themselves, always boasting, which surely points to a deep inferiority complex. They really still don’t know who they are: Europeans or Asian hordes bent on conquest. They also seriously underrate the Allies contribution to the war.

      • alibi says:

        Thats funny, the germans had said a few things about their worst enemies the russians and the whole bunch of the polish nerds went berserk screaming about those f king russians bragging about themselfs. Jeez kids comeon u re drooling, and BTW – it were the germans’ thoughts here not the russians’

    Simply and effective army.

    No other people made as much of a sacrifice as the Soviets during WW2.

    • Jeff Pigden says:

      Considering the mess Stalin made of the military with the purges, its a wonder Russia recovered enough to finally expel the Nazis.

      • Exadios says:

        Soviet front, army and division commanders where, on average, much younger than their German equivalents. Possibly Stalin did not make as much of a mess as you believe.

        • traffic says:

          Yes, they were younger because Stalin had executed all his older, more experienced generals. You really think that just because they were young, they were better commanders? The German commanders had spent years developing their new tactics while any Soviet commanders which had done the same in the years leading up to 1939 (there were many high-ranking Soviet commanders who proposed tactics that were similar to the German mobile warfare tactics) were executed in the Great Purge of 1939. The Soviet Union did not recover until the turning point at the Battle of Stalingrad in Winter of 1942-1943. Germany invaded in June of 1941. That is a 1 1/2 years of failure. Soviet soldiers were encircled many times, either face with death, surrender, or retreat to their lines. This would have resulted in their death because of the Barrier troops. Stalin personally ordered friendly retreating troops to be shot (stavka directive no. 1919).

          Stalin chose to ignore repeated evidence from his spies that Germany wanted to invade. He told his units to not retaliate. After the Germany invasions began, he pretty much disappeared for upwards of a weak because he was so stunned of Hitler’s “betrayal.” (Despite their signing of a cooperation pact (Molotov-Ribbentrop Act), Hitler had been building up troops on the border and multiple spies had suggested that Germany was to invade: Stalin hoped that Germany wouldn’t invade since the Soviet Union was not ready and chose to ignore the substantial evidence.) Complete disaster was only avoided by his commanders who had seen what was coming and made what preparations they could with Stalin’s interference.

          Bottom line is this: Stalin was not the one commanding his troops. His officers were. And if he hadn’t purged his more experienced ones in 1939, then the Soviet Union could have broken the German attack faster and launched their counterattack earlier, saving countless lives. However, if you are a Stalin supporter, then maybe you don’t give a shit about lives, just like Stalin.

    The real truth is Russians know how to be soldiers. They’ll bring you pain in the third degree. They’ll give better than they get every time. Don’t let the delusional rantings of politicians throw your life away next time. The hole that guy over there is digging isn’t for him, it’s for the next bunch of fools who want to try something with Mother Russia.

  11. YJ says:

    A sacrifice and victory forced by their political officers.

  12. Dennis says:

    Well, were not Germans doing the same: raping, killing, burning alive…..
    It’s war and every means to defeat the enemy morally and phisically works.

  13. Bonkajs says:

    Both armies where great!

  14. vbnbcn says:

    bunch of drunkards and rapists, they raped half of Europe. You better read what it was really said about the soviet soldiers, that their army was almost medieval with cossacks fighting on horse and equipment transported on mules and donkeys.

    Closet nazis are going berserk seeing this pics.Nice job of showing which of the commentators,who are blabbing about freedom and democracy and evil commies,are actually neo nazi sociopaths deep in their harts :)

    There is little doubt about it, the fighting spirit and courage of the Red Army soldier was a decisive factor in the German defeat. Hitler thought it was going to be a replay of WWI. The Germans thought that it would be a walkover. By the end of 1941, the Germans had achieved only one of the four objectives of Barbarossa, the weather had closed in on them and they were at war with the U.S. Many German officers began to realize that they were now locked in a war they couldn’t win and they couldn’t afford to lose.

  18. vspar says:

    The initial push into Russia by the
    German army destroyed the Russian army.

    Only thing that saved Russia was:
    1.Supplies and armament’s from America
    2.The dividing of the German army with the
    Western allied fronts
    3.Re-enforcements of the Russian army
    from Eastern Russia (With American supplies)
    4.The Russian weather.

    Without all of these, Russia would have lost.

  19. oldeafcoot says:

    The Nazis thought that the Soviet Union would collapse like a house of cards. They certainly did not expect the Soviet soldiers to fight as hard as they did. It was true that some units in the early days surrendered quickly, but most fought to the best of their ability. All the while the fighting was going on, General Winter was on his way. General Winter showed the Nazis what Russia was all about.

    the germans were well trained cowards.
    they only won against countries who didn’t know they were in a war until it was too late.
    the germans ran like cowards.
