We have fought during 15 days for a single house,” writes a German officer, “with mortars, grenades, machine guns, and bayonets. Already by the third day 54 German corpses are strewn in the cellars, on the landings, and the staircases. The front is a corridor between burnt-out rooms; it is the thin ceiling between two floors. Help comes from neighboring houses by fire escapes and chimneys. There is a ceaseless struggle from noon to night. From story to story, faces black with sweat, we bombard each other with grenades in the middle of explosions, clouds of dust and smoke, heaps of mortar, floods of blood, fragments of furniture and human beings. Ask any soldier what half an hour of hand-to-hand struggle means in such a fight. And imagine Stalingrad; 80 days and 80 nights of hand-to-hand struggles. The street is no longer measured by meters but by corpses...

”Stalingrad is no longer a town. By day it is an enormous cloud of burning, blinding smoke; it is a vast furnace lit by the reflection of the flames. And when night arrives, one of those scorching, howling, bleeding nights, the dogs plunge into the Volga and swim desperately to gain the other bank. The nights of Stalingrad are a terror for them. Animals flee this hell; the hardest stones can not bear it for long; only men endure.”

— Wehrmacht Lieutenant Weiner, 24th Panzer Division, as quoted in Geoffrey Roberts’ Victory at Stalingrad (2002) and Alan Clark’s Barbarossa: The Russian-German Conflict, 1941-1945 (1965).

Before they follow in the Third Reich's footsteps, let the Luciferian globalists, their idiot media minions screaming for more confrontation with Russia, and the moronic fake liberal Twitter trolls who imagine war would be a cakewalk against those homophobic, election-hacking Russian untermenschen look upon Stalingrad.

Let them contemplate there being no room in the bunkers for them, puking their guts and hair out before dying of radiation poisoning...after their own children or neighbors kids have been drafted into a war beyond reckoning...the tanks burned, the supercarriers sunk with thousands lost in an afternoon, and the vaunted 'invisible' stealth jets blown out of the sky, the GPS and drones uselessly jammed, no wonder-weapons to the rescue or proxies to bleed and die in their stead. So that it comes down to how it was 75 years ago -- man to man, squad to squad, grenade to grenade, sharpening shovels, bleeding out in the frigid, scorched ruins.... -- JWS
