    In Downfall the Russian Army cornered the remaining Germans and the SS in a particular region of Berlin. How historically accurate was that?

  6. The cake is a lie says:

    2:42 Not gonna lie, objectively speaking it's pretty epic when a leader remains till the very very end to die along with his nation, like "If my whole world is gonna disappear, I'll vanish with it". Reminds me to the last battle of Byzantium and the fall of Constantinople.

  7. Funnily enough my partly Jewish grandfather as there fighting to keep the soviets from touching our sacred capitol.

  8. Glidescube says:

    Patton was right. We should have helped the Germans push back the Soviets to their border. We would have avoided the tje cold war and Russian wouldn't have built the Easter bloc.

    Not for a stratigic purpose per se but in order to keep the western allies out

    Wait is he even sitting in a armchair .?

  19. Andres Herrera says:

    "Our grip tightens around the black heart of Berlin. The Fuhrer demands all to shed their last drop of blood. The old, the young, the weak. If they stand for Germany, than they will die for Germany. Building by building. Room by room. One rat at a time"-Sgt Reznov Call of duty World at War

  20. My grandfather defended berlin when he was 12. He survived. he claims he took out 4 soldier and helped take out 1 tank

  21. John McKay says:

    Why did himmler lie about the soviets? Did he want to lose the war or was he just wrong?
