In June, 1944, Germany had a population of 70 to 80 million people. The Soviet Union had around 2 1/2 to 3 times as many. Hitler overextended himself by attacking a country with more people and a greater land mass

One of the Soviet Union's greatest failures is considered to be Operation Mars. 40,000 German Casualties, 100,000 Soviet Casualties. But considering populations, the soviets still inflicted more damage than they took.
I can't wait until someone splits Hoxhaism, so that there will be a 6th Generation in the esteemed Marxist-Leninist line to be sectarian about.
