    That’s why you shouldn’t make pacts with Nazis to invade and divide up your neighbors. It may come back to bite you

      Actually today most who studied WWII agree that Stalin knew this. Also he knew that the germans would attack the USSR, it was only a matter of time. But after what he (JS that is) had done to the red army in the 30:s he was willing to go a long way to buy time for rebuilding the army and the “Ribbentrop-pact” was one way of buying time, large shipments of grain and strategic materials to Germany was another, but the fact that Germany would sooner or later attack was clear to Stalin and the Stavka all along. They were just trying to make it later to give time for educating new officers and building more KV1:s and T34:s

    • Dan Carter says:

      The USSR made numerous attempts during the 1930s to make a pact with France and the UK to contain Germany. After the western countries brushed them off over and over, they finally decided they might be better off buying time with Hitler. No one’s hands are entirely clean here.

    Well,it is happening today.
    The diference,is that the soldiers are profesionals.
    They are payed from oil trasts.

      the difference is that now a war is fought by a thousand of professionals, not a million of cannfodder. at least we can hope that every war will take less blood that way…

    Hitler was the best friend of Stalin and vice versa these days

    • cokoll says:

      they both played best friends. like later stalin and trumen. both friendships ended in war, first one in real one, second in cold war. and both parties later revealed they planned the war from the beginning
