Stalingrad. Signs in Hell
An entry from the German officer’s “Stalingrad” diary: “None of us will return to Germany unless a miracle happens. Time has shifted to the Russians. ” The miracle did not happen. For it is not only time that has shifted to the Russian side ...
In August 1942, Hitler ordered "not to leave a stone unturned" in Stalingrad. Happened. Six months later, when everything was over, the Soviet government raised the question of the unreasonableness of rebuilding the city, which would have cost more than building a new city. However, Stalin insisted on the restoration of Stalingrad in the literal sense of the word from the ashes. So, so many shells were dropped on Mamayev Kurgan, that after the liberation of the whole 2 years the grass did not grow on it.
from the author of the site: I liked everything, but not only Russia fought, but the whole Planet ... Let's not forget about it!
In Stalingrad and the Red Army, and the Wehrmacht for an unknown reason, changed the methods of warfare. From the very beginning of the war, the Red Army used tactics of flexible defense with waste in critical situations. The command of the Wehrmacht, in turn, avoided large, bloody battles, preferring to bypass large fortified areas. In the battle of Stalingrad, both sides forget their principles and enter the bloody felling.
A start was made on August 23, 1942, when German aviation carried out a massive bombardment of the city. 40,000 people died.
This exceeds the official Allied air raid on Dresden in February 1945 (25,000 casualties).
Under the city itself was located a large system of underground communications. During the fighting underground galleries were actively used by both Soviet troops and Germans. Moreover, even local battles took place in the tunnels. It is interesting that German troops from the beginning of their penetration into the city began to build a system of their own underground facilities.
Work continued almost until the end of the Battle of Stalingrad, and only at the end of January 1943, when German generals realized that the battle was lost, the underground galleries were blown up.
For us, it remains a mystery that the Germans built. One of the German soldiers then ironically wrote in his diary that he had the impression that the command wanted to go to hell and call on demons for help.
War of the Planets
A number of esotericists claim that some of the strategic decisions of the Soviet command in the Battle of Stalingrad were influenced by practicing astrologers. For example, the counterattack of the Soviet troops, Operation Uran, began on November 19, 1942 at 7.30. At this point, the so-called ascendant (the ecliptic point rising above the horizon) was located in the planet Mars (the Roman god of war), and the planet Uranus set the ecliptic point. According to astrologers, it was under the auspices of this planet that the German army was located.
Interestingly, parallel to the Soviet command, another major offensive on the South-Western Front, the Saturn, was being developed. At the last moment, they abandoned her and conducted Operation Small Saturn. Interestingly, in ancient mythology, it is this god (in Greek mythology Kronos) who sediments Uranus.
Alexander Nevsky vs. Bismarck
Military operations were accompanied by a large number of signs and signs. Thus, in the 51st Army, a detachment of machine gunners under the command of Senior Lieutenant Alexander Nevsky fought. The then propagandists of the Stalingrad Front launched a rumor that the Soviet officer was a direct descendant of the prince who defeated the Germans on Lake Peipsi. Alexander Nevsky was even presented to the Order of the Red Banner. And on the German side in the battle took the great-grandson of Bismarck, who, as you know, warned, never to fight with Russia. The descendant of the German Kaiser, by the way, was captured.
Timer and tango
During the battle, the Soviet side applied revolutionary innovations of psychological pressure on the enemy. So, from the loudspeakers installed at the front line, the favorite hits of German music were heard, which were interrupted by reports of victories of the Red Army in the sectors of the Stalingrad Front. But the most effective means was the monotonous knock of the metronome, which was interrupted after 7 strokes with a comment in German: “Every 7 seconds, one German soldier dies at the front”. At the end of the same series of 10-20 "timer reports" from the loudspeakers rushed tango.
Many German soldiers and officers who had many battles behind their shoulders recalled that in Stalingrad they sometimes had the impression that they had fallen into some kind of parallel world, an atmosphere of absurdity, where traditional Germanic pedantry and rationality evaporated.
The German command often gave absolutely meaningless orders.
For example, in street battles for some secondary sector, the German generals could put a couple of thousand of their own fighters. One of the most absurd moments was the episode when German aviators, “suppliers”, dropped from the air the fighters closed in the “bloody cauldron” fighters instead of food and uniforms.
