The size of the march was staggering. Even though they marching at a fast pace and twenty men abreast, it took ninety minutes for the whole column to pass by
Poor bastards. Undoubtedly they all met a brutal end at the hand of the Commie
The Nazis deserved any humiliation they got. Over 20 million Russian casualties? The Eastern Front was a slaughterhouse.
Nice post. I never knew of this parade.
//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_crimes_of_the_Wehrmacht – Sometimes the ignorance and nazi worship on this sub is disgusting.
The Japanese needed this as well, but they got theirs in the form of the A-bomb
How embarrassing, I would die on the spot if that was me, or shortly after
Son, when you grow up Would you be the savior of the broken The beaten, and the damned?
Is the parade they fed starving German PoW hot cabbage & had they had to relieve themselves during the march?
Any historians here with a bit of background on this event? What was it like for the soldiers being paraded here? I can imagine part of them were real nazi believers, others were probably average joes who were professional soldiers or just drafted conscripts? Were they just happy the war is over and just going with it to get home as fast as possible? How did the spectators treat them? Were they just watching, were they throwing vegetables,…?
Just incredible how it gives some perspective of how many god damned people were fighting. It’s almost boggling to think that the German army had to replace these losses somehow to fill the frontlines.
Wonder how many of them ever returned home, if any?
Really hard to see that this sub is full of people without any respect or consideration for the people that suffered this war. Nearly nobody of these men was going east out of their own will. Many of them were Nazis, many were not, many of them were part of war crimes, many of them were not. Getting enjoyment out of scenes like this just shows again what’s wrong with america: celebrating war and violence because they never actually suffered it, as Europe did. I hope you don’t have to go through what Europe did go through to come to the realisation that war is something tragic and futile, nothing to be celebrated.
Thanks. Had never heard of this parade.
Furthermore, a prime example of this is Kursk. The Battle of Kusrk in 1944 had over 6,000 tanks, 2,000,000 troops, and 6,000 aircraft.
Thats enough for an entire conflict/war alone, many times over in fact. Mindblowingly large.
