  1. Really interesting and outstanding animation! Definitly looking forward to future episodes!!

  2. This article made me think how nice it would be if the writer new to read German operational orders and he was less hasty in judging
    operational concepts;Stalingrand did not feature in the operational order or 1942,it was added later by “all knowing” Adolf who,for the shake of capturing The city of Stalin divided the all too powerful ‘Motpulk’ and put a death nail into the campaign of 1942.
