Isn't it kinda ironic that the winter is against the Russian army for a change?

Germany’s supply lines were cut and the winter in russia was harsh. Soviet troops also suffered in the winter during ww2. They werent immune to the cold. Sub zero temperatures dont pick sides. The russians are going to struggle as an invader but ive been worrying about the winter for ukranians since the war began. Without proper shelter their people will also suffer especially the old.

Germany was stretched out and didn't get resupplied. The Luftwaffe was supposed to resupply the army, but Hitlers head at that time was too far up his own ass, and refused to listen to his generals.

The Luftwaffe also told Hitler they could supply the army when they couldn't, probably because they were scared that saying no would lead to them being shot or something.

The fact that Putin has people of influence speaking out against him now tells you how crazy shit has gotten.
