- That reminds of a slogan that Germans in the 6th army said. From the brutality of The Siege of Stalingrad on the eastern front, German soldiers adopted the phrase "The Fuhrer will get us home." Every single man in that 6th Army was either killed or captured. Edit: Not every man, some made it out.
- aw shit, I'll never forget Nazis were people too.
- Not every German soldier was a nazi. Remember that too.
- I didn't, I'm talking about the drafted soldiers.
- Its like saying every US soldier is a Democrat.
- Sage advice coming from /u/I_FIST_CAMELS .
- That's where I get all my life advice.
- Please don't think I'm a Nazi sympathizer or anything from posting that. I just thought it was a relevant historical tidbit.
- I don't think anyone thought that. If anything, you did make the point that German soldiers were, indeed, human beings with human emotion.
- Yes. I think it could actually be harmful to demonize Nazi Germany and its people to the point that we forget that the Germans at the time were mostly just regular people, because things like that could happen again in the future if we let it.
- Or is happening now in North Korea
- Kind of different, really. There are plenty of rapidly growing xenophobic nationalist movements in the west, though.
- what? they ARE people who have thoughts and dreams and families, not evil killing machines like we paint them to be
- Nobody thought you were a nazi sympathizer. Grovelling with this unnecessary apology lost you some respect though.
- Groveling? Lol ok.
- I've always wondered, the common solider on the front likes who knew little or nothing of the holocaust , where they really full fledged nazis. Sure they may have been racists to a point but where they really bad people?
- Of the 90,000 or so soldiers who were captured, 5000 still made it back. Many others in the 6th Army who were wounded were evacuated before the Army was encircled. Some still even after it was. Not sure where you get every single man in the 6th Army was killed or captured. Read more comments
