The most important thing in military affairs is the ability to look at the situation through the eyes of the enemy. Zhukov had to figure out how they felt in Berlin, knowing that the only subtle thread connecting the distant Swedish ports with the German metallurgical base could be cut by the Soviet fleet at any moment?

... Stalin was friends with Hitler. There were mutual courtesies. Congratulations on your birthday. There were vows of loyalty. Comrade Stalin drank champagne with Mr. Ribbentrop, and the hammers with Hitler. but to the vital resources of Germany, Stalin was ed very impudently.
Zhukov, if he was a strategist, should have warned Stalin of the danger of Germany's sudden and crushing retaliatory actions.

It can not exist unless it is surrounded by high walls, by watchtowers and by guard-dogs, for people always want to escape from any socialist regime, just as they do from a prison. If you continue your attempts to establish a model society you will need to build walls around it. You will be forced to do so sooner or later by the flood of refugees..More Viktor Suvorov quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
