The wars in 1812 were primitive. In the battle of Borodino in the area a few hectares per day killed 100,000 Russians and French. In 1941, there are many more opportunities for a maneuver war. The Germans captured millions of Russians, bearing minimal losses.Stugbit wrote: ↑09 Sep 2018 16:25Answering Jesk about the Hitler being a Soviet agent:
I have seen many weird things in history, so I would not discredit completely even that assumption. But I got to tell you, this is highly unlikely.
This account almost for Stalin giving a gun to a stranger put in the back of his head.
Hitler was an Austrian, he fought WWI, he had a background. How would you trust something like the German Military power to just a person, an agent? Even trusting Sorge it took the Soviets many time, as initially they considered him not trustable.
Even so, Hitler pointed the gun and reached almost Moscow. It was not an easy thing reaching that far in Russia. Still, there was a precedent invasion developed in the same way. The Napoleon`s one...
You can argue that Napoleon himself was an agent of the Russian Empire. But what would be the mathematic probability of having two narcissistic disordered, low stature megalomaniacs working as agents for Russia?
Hitler did wrong. I have not been interested in talking seriously about stupid things since that time. Hitler's errors in practice are sabotage, rather primitive.
I did not write about the Soviet agent. Stalin needed him as a scarecrow, for protection from which Europeans led by the United States will unite. Hitler was an agent of the European Union. He dreamed of a democratic Europe with a single European currency.
