I was recently watching a documentary in which it was asserted that in 1943, LW General Milch stated that: "Of 8 million soldiers [in the Wehrmacht] barely 260,000 men are in the frontline in Russia."

Milch mhad mention only frontline soldiers - rifleman, machineguners, mortarmen. In this case it make sense.
