Re: "Ivan's War, 1939-1945"
I'm not sure it mattered to some of them WHICH order they used...especially with sometimes several groups of twenty or more soldiers "standing in line" over individual women laying on the side of the road with their pants down, and an "officer" "directing traffic..." while the main column moved along the road...
The quote that "It was so easy, you just stuck the Nagan (sic) to the side of their head and they would lie down and let you do anything to them" kind of stuck in my head when I read it...
The underlying theme was that it was usually NOT for pleasure, and many Russian soldiers didn't like to "have to" do it...it was PUNISHMENT and REVENGE....that "had to be done..."
But the OTHER shoe was if a Russian soldier DID survive the war, there was better than a 90% chance he had some sort of VD....
The problems we face today are
there because the people who work
for a living are outnumbered by those
who vote for a living.
