Response to Ocelot II (Reply #4)

9. Many of those losses were due to the way Russia fights wars, where soldiers are treated

as completely expendable, and are simply thrown at the enemy en masse. They also treated their own POWs as traitors, so had no agreements with the Germans for humane treatment, and shipped the survivors straight to Siberia, where many more died.

When you have no regard for the value of human life, it pretty much guarantees huge losses. They even managed to lose around 200,000 soldiers in a few months of war with Finland.

The losses were from a combination of both Hitler and Stalin, though I know that goes against their official narrative.
