THE FUNDAMENTAL ROLE OF MILITARY COMMUNISM IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR
The USSR was the only country in the world whose Communist Red Army stopped and then routed the overwhelming force of Nazi Germany. The United States came to Europe after the crushing defeat of the armies of Germany and its allies in the USSR, when the enemy had huge, irreparable losses in people and equipment and retreated under the blows of the Red Army. The United States dealt with the undeveloped remnants of the monstrous force that fell upon the USSR in 1941 and 1942.
It is enough to remind all detractors of the USSR that the armies of Germany and its allies, which in June 1941 were twice the size of the Red Army, by 1943 were less than the size of the Red Army.
It’s natural to ask everyone who is trying to redraw world history in their favor, all the vindictors shouting about the insignificant role of the USSR in the Victory in World War II: “Who in two years of the war reduced the number of troops of Hitler Germany and their weapons to the extent that they are already were not able to conduct not only offensive, but also defensive operations? USA, England, or maybe France? ”
No, the number of troops of Germany and its allies was reduced to the point where they could no longer advance and keep the defense on the Soviet-German front, the troops of the Red Army of the Soviet Union.
The second front in 1943 had not yet been opened, but the Nazi German government was already forced to carry out a total mobilization in the country in 1943, having drafted even 50-year-old men into the army, since the German army had huge losses on the Soviet-German front. But 1943 was only the beginning of the mass extermination of Nazi invaders who stopped the retreat at the end of 1942 by the Red Army.
By the way, it should be noted that the USSR, deprived by the middle of the war of vast territories and residents living on them, had no advantages over the enemy in the free possibility of replenishing its troops with soldiers and officers. This suggests that already in these two years, the German armed forces had huge losses in people.
The losses of German troops were so great that by the summer of 1943, despite total mobilization, Germany was not able to bring the number of its troops on the Eastern Front to the level of spring-autumn 1942, which at that time amounted to about 6.2 million people and by 1.1 million people exceeded the number of troops of the Red Army. Germany was able to bring the number of its troops on the Eastern Front to only 4.8 million. In addition, 525 thousand people included German satellite troops.
By the summer of 1943, there were 6.6 million people in the army of the USSR. In the summer of 1943, for the first time in the entire war, the number of Soviet troops exceeded the number of enemy troops. Two years before this, the Red Army fought, having a strength less than the enemy on average by 1 million people.
On February 23, 1943, on the day of the Red Army, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief I.V. Stalin issued an order stating, in particular, the following: “20 months have passed since the Red Army waged an unprecedented heroic struggle in history against the invasion of Nazi hordes. In view of the absence of a second front in Europe, the Red Army alone bears the brunt of the war. Nevertheless, the Red Army not only resisted the onslaught of the Nazi hordes, but also became a thunderstorm for the fascist armies during the war.
In heavy fighting in the summer and autumn of 1942, the Red Army blocked the path of the fascist beast. Our people will forever keep the memory of the heroic defense of Sevastopol and Odessa, of stubborn battles near Moscow and the foothills of the Caucasus, in the Rzhev region and near Leningrad, of the greatest battle in the history of wars near the walls of Stalingrad. In these great battles, our valiant fighters, commanders and political workers covered the Red Army military banners with unfading glory and laid a solid foundation for the victory over the Nazi armies. Three months ago, Red Army troops launched an offensive on the outskirts of Stalingrad. Since then, the initiative of military operations has been in our hands, and the pace and striking force of the offensive operations of the Red Army have not weakened … ”
And how could they defeat her if during the war against the Red Army up to 70% of all divisions in the army of Hitler Germany acted on average. The same can be said of the armies of the allies of Germany. The length of the Soviet-German front ranged from 3,000 to 6,200 km, the North African and Italian – 300-350 km, the West – 800 km. It was on the Soviet-German front that Germany and its allies lost more than 70% of their personnel, 75% of aviation, 74% of artillery and 75% of tanks and assault guns. Given that the Germans, tens of thousands without resistance, sought to surrender to the Americans, not the Russians, because they were afraid of retaliation for crimes committed on the territory of the USSR, it becomes quite obvious whose contribution to the great victory in the Second World War over fascism, – much more significant.
And how did the USA and its allies fight? For example, at the same time, when millions of soldiers and officers of the Red Army fought bravely and wisely near Stalingrad and on other fronts of the Great Patriotic War, the Allies carried out the only operation on the European continent, insignificant in the number of forces and means involved.
On August 17, 1942, a landing force of 5 thousand Canadians was landed in the area of the French city of Dieppe. The Germans then quickly defeated the Canadians: 900 Canadian soldiers were killed, about 2 thousand were taken prisoner. Such operations only raised the spirit of the Nazi army, but did not affect the battles on the Soviet-German front.
The Canadians are not better than the results of the Canadians participating in the war against fascist Germany, and the results of the British in Egypt and Libya, where at first they successfully opposed the troops of Italy. But at Rommel’s first strike in March 1941, the British were forced to retreat in a panic. In less than a week, the British retreated more than 200 km from the position held on the western border of Cyrenaica. In less than two weeks, the British had already moved to the eastern border of Cyrenaica and the western border of Egypt – more than 400 km. Only the encircled garrison in Tobruk remained, consisting mainly of people called up in Australia.
From book to book, historical revisionists in Europe and the United States write that the Germans took advantage of the fact that the British had only one, and even that weakened, armored division. In reality, the bloodless 2nd Armored Division nevertheless had three tank units, compared to two at Rommel, and had a quantitatively favorable ratio for cannon tanks.
The British were able to drive back the Germans from Egypt only when they ensured superiority over the Germans in the number of troops and in the number of tanks by almost 3 times, and aircraft – by more than 4 times. They were able to do this due to the fact that Stalingrad did not leave the Germans reserves for Africa.
We are not talking about the low combat effectiveness of the Anglo-American troops. The point is the scale of the military operations of our allies. All operations carried out by them in terms of the number of troops involved are at the level of operations of several Soviet divisions. Operations of this level could not affect the outcome of World War II. And they can not go in any comparison with the scale of operations of the Red Army.
If we return to the operations of the Allies in northern Africa, we note that if the parts of the German Army Rommel opposing the Allied forces totaled a maximum of 100 thousand people, and 5.5 million soldiers of Germany and its allies crossed the USSR border in 1941. Only near Moscow, in order to carry out a plan for capturing its capture, the German command concentrated in the band of Army Group Center, east of Smolensk, 1 million 800 thousand people, 1700 tanks, over 14 thousand guns and mortars, 1390 aircraft.
In the summer of 1942, on the Soviet-German front, Germany and its allies had 6.2 million people, 3229 tanks and assault guns, up to 57 thousand guns and mortars, and about 2.2 thousand combat aircraft. The number of forces and means involved in the Second World War of Germany and its allies against Western countries does not enter into any comparison with the number of forces and means employed by Germany against the USSR. This clearly indicates that the Soviet Union defeated the army of Germany and its allies.
But the falsifiers of history created a completely different opinion. As a result, the Western world is well aware of the battles of the British troops in El Ageil, where England defended its colonies, the Tobruk fortress and Cyrenaica, but few people in the world currently know and remember the Moscow, Stalingrad, Kursk battles. It was these battles in 1941-1942 that foreshadowed the decline of the German army, and in 1943 put it in front of a catastrophe. Unfortunately, very few people in the world today know that in May 1945 it was the Red Army that stormed the capital of Germany by entering Berlin.
The world glorifies the armies of the United States and England, despite the fact that they did not learn how to conduct military operations in 1944, when the Red Army saved the retreating, often panic-fleeing armies of the United States and England.
Neither the United States, nor England, nor France, nor Canada, nor any other Western country, or the combined forces of these countries, were able to crush the German army. Moreover, the allied forces in comparison with the USSR carried out an insignificant number of military operations against Germany. Losses of the three millionth American army in the war with Germany for 11 months amounted to 8351 people. According to historical facts, once, at the end of 1944, the Germans counterattacked the Allied forces in the Ardennes. The Americans and the British fled in panic, asking for help from the USSR, from JV Stalin. He, as we know, gave orders to the Soviet troops on the offensive on a wide front on January 12, 1945, thanks to which the troops of the USA and England were saved. But already in 1965, Eisenhower said: “Germany suffered a complete defeat after the battle in the Ardennes …” Please note, not after the 4-year war against the USSR, but – “after the battle in the Ardennes.”
The vast majority of all German forces fought with the armed forces of the Soviet Union – that is, they were involved on the Eastern Front. They were so busy in the war against the USSR that even when the American and British troops landed in Northern France, they did not significantly counter them. On this occasion, Eisenhower during the war said: “The invasion of Normandy through the English Channel in June 1944 began under light conditions and passed without much resistance from German troops on the coast, which we simply did not expect. The Germans did not have that defense here, about which they shouted to the whole world. ” But, apparently, they had powerful forces at that time on the eastern front, with which the Red Army soldiers were exhausting bloody battles? And they simply did not have the opportunity to throw more forces into northern France, when their fate was decided on the eastern front?
What exactly was the “Atlantic Wall”? During this “rampart” there were no more than three thousand guns of various calibers. On average, this is slightly more than one gun per kilometer. There were few armed reinforced concrete structures, and they could not serve as a serious obstacle to the enemy.
For comparison: in 1943, on the Soviet-German front, in the direction of the main attacks, the opposing sides installed up to 100 guns per kilometer of the front. During the assault on Berlin, the artillery density of the Soviet troops in the main strike section was up to 270 barrels with a caliber of 76 millimeters and more per kilometer in front, and on the Atlantic Shaft a little over 1 barrel per kilometer of the front. Colonel General F. Halder, the former chief of the general staff of the German ground forces, frankly admitted the weakness of the “Atlantic Wall”.
The main difficulties in invading Normandy, according to D. Eisenhower, were not in the resistance of the German troops, but in the transfer of troops and their supply through the English Channel.
But quite a bit of time passed, and the Americans began to write and speak exactly the opposite of what they wrote and said in 1941-1945.
Moderate falsifiers of history, being aware of the fact that the United States, Britain and other Western countries lacked military operations that could affect the outcome of the war – and they write about the huge supplies of industrial products and food during the war from the Western countries to the Soviet Union. However, they forget, even this participation, which the Soviet soldiers on all fronts had been waiting for so long and unsuccessfully, was not free: the USSR paid for these deliveries, as when performing trade operations with any other countries.
Allegations of the supply of a huge amount of products to warring and bleeding in the Second World Soviet Union are not true. The share of industrial supplies of industrial products by the Allies during the Great Patriotic War amounted to 4% of domestic production, and the import of grain, flour and cereals, in terms of grain – 2.8% of the average annual grain harvest in the USSR. Based on the data presented, it is obvious that the supplies of the Allies, of course, helped us, but they made up a small part of production in the heroic rear of the Soviet Union. The belated opening of the “second front” promised before the end of 1942, due to its insignificance, could not affect the outcome of the war with the powerful forces of Nazi Germany. There was no other country and other people in the world capable of crushing the armies of Germany and its allies. Moreover, England and other countries remained independent states thanks to the Soviet Union. But instead of gratitude, they slander our country, the heroic past of our army, and deny the decisive contribution of the USSR to the victory over Nazi Germany.
Therefore, we can declare with full responsibility that only communist forces were able to defeat fascism. Representatives of which in European countries, whose governments were helpless in front of German Nazism, organized a heroic Resistance; as it was in France, in Italy, and in other countries.
We, the Communists of the World, who together are victors in the Second World War, who have overcome the “brown” threat, are now again called up and obligated to triumph over the ungrateful forces of the West, already in the new Cold War. During which a new wave of neo-fascism is quietly, implicitly being prepared in our world. Nazification, which has now begun again in many countries of Europe and America, has become possible only thanks to a distorted picture of history. Today we must convey to the world the truth about the great feat of our ancestors, the peoples of a beautiful country – the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, which defeated Nazi Germany in 1945 and brought freedom to all countries and peoples of the anti-Hitler coalition.
