    There is another instance when the author "over-credits" the Soviets in this book.

    He claims that the GL (People's Guard) received air drops from the Soviets during 1942, but in reality that too is false.


    The GL did not receive a single air drop from the Soviets (or anybody) during entire 1942.

    There was a single air drop by the Soviets into the occupied Poland at the end of 1941, before even the GL was even founded (during early January of 1942); several people were parachuted (the future leaders of the GL) together with a very small quantity of firearms and ammunition, and I think also a radio transmitter. After that there was nothing for the entire 1942; the Soviets did not made their first ever air drop to the GL until 1943.





    The first ever Soviet air drop to the GL (People's Guard) only took place in September of 1943, and it was extremely small; only three machine pistols together with some ammunition.

    You can read about it here:


    "Podczas zgrupowania dowództwa obwodu we wrześniu 1943 roku w lasach parczewskich został utworzony, między innymi okręg Gwardii Ludowej nr 5 południowej Lubelszczyzny. (...).

    Podczas zgrupowania GL w lasach parczewskich otrzymaliśmy mały zrzut broni. Z niecierpliwością oczekiwaliśmy na ten zrzut, który właściwie był pierwszym zrzutem dla oddziałów partyzanckich GL. Nie spełnił nam naszych nadziei, ponieważ grupa otrzymała tylko trzy pistolety maszynowe z pewnym zapasem amunicji."

    Nah, they just had great post-war PR, in order to appeal to the "greatest generation". Bf 109 was a death trap post 1942, FW-190 variants were outmatched at all altitudes by appropriate opposing fighters, Me-262 had terrible engine reliability and tendency to kill pilots, those specialised bomber destroyer aircraft were sitting ducks for Allied and Soviet fighters. Really, German aircraft engines were primitive compared to British and American ones. They held out because they utilised their best pilots without rotation, but, due to attrition and losses, it left them with increasingly poor pilots in the long run. The same way it was bad to form something as stupid as Panzer Lehr.

    Red Army could win whole Europe as the most authoritative scholars on this matter in US confirm. Nuclear bomb in 1945 and 1946 have not been the weapon which could stop this theoretical advance.

    The Great Patriotic War took so heavy toll on Soviet demographics that by early 1945 even this large manpower reserves were drying out. Deployment of additional 500,000 troops to the eastern front would be catastrophic for the Red Army.

    I disagree about the term "catastrophic" but there is no denial that mobilization strain was immense.

    The Soviet union had ~57 mln reservists, drying out... certainly not.

    They also suffered a huge shortage of troops by the end of 1941 when a large portion of their most heavily populated western territory was occupied by the Germans... didn't really stop them from fronting up each year with new troops.

    The western militaries were in much worse shape by the end of the war and they had Europe to rebuild.

    The ten or so million Soviet Troops killed was comparable to the number of people killed in Germany during the war... many of the 20 odd million Soviets killed were women and children and the elderly.

    The first Russia/US meeting on the Elbe photo to get back to US HQ. Pretty dangerous as well. Apparently there was three meeting that day, the one before the official photo opportunity.
