    What type of unit are the guys portrayed in this movie?

    PS: Anyone else feel sorry for that German guy between 36-41 min?

    I am sure every German they captured was not SS and was totally innocent... the entire west german army was made up of such people very rapidly...

    The thing is that the Soviets kept losing soldiers right up until the end... perhaps if the Germans weren't so keen to kill so many Soviet soldiers they might have gotten better treatment.

    These are certainly scout/recon type soldiers... could not say more alas.

    They could possibly be the Soviet airborne troops.

    They did operate at times deep inside the Axis territory.


    You can read about some actions of these Soviet airborne troops in the German-occupied northern Poland on here:

    Do the Germans feel sorry for this?

    From what I can deduce they downplay and white-wash the whole thing.

    Yes, there were 4 454 "forced adoptions" but there were also at least around 12 000 ethnic Polish children from Zamojszczyzna murdered in different ways by the Germans.

    Soviet Recon in WW2:

    Essentially only an order of battle data, and I think it might be only for 1941.

    A BBC documentary on WWII was insinuating that German atrocities against Soviet civilians were justified by the death of
    invading German soldiers.

    Step back and marvel at the brain rot "thinking" in that one.

    Well the BBC did employ Jimmy 'Salivating' Saville, so their 'moral-compass' was almost as fucked as Jimmy's interest in daycare centers.

    When the Germans invaded they justified their barbaric and inhuman behaviour by stating that the Soviets had not signed this or that convention on war or the treatment of prisoners/occupied territories so they could therefore do as they pleased.

    It was the Soviets they called savages and barbaric... yet when the Soviets entered their territory they demanded civilised behaviour from their enemy after four years of denying them the same courtesy...

    With talk from German defence ministers talking about spending money on defence so they can negotiate from a position of power with the Soviets it is pretty clear they remember and understand nothing... yet they claim to be civilised and cultured and a beacon of democracy and peace for the world to follow.

    Well the BBC did employ Jimmy 'Salivating' Saville, so their 'moral-compass' was almost as fucked as Jimmy's interest in daycare centers.

    They bent over backwards to protect assholes like this guy and others... just like the Catholic Church did... purely to protect their own reputations... no first let alone second thoughts for the children.
