  • I would rather die in battle than being taken as prisoner of war. Its worst

  • There was a lot of humping going on, on both sides.

  • I think we all know what happened to them….

  • Stalin's Trollopes

  • You meant to say the woman were passed around after capture first then immediately executed after those had their way. Sad but true..

  • Even if not shot the Soviet male prisoners were starved, frozen or died of disease. If they survived they had to face interrogation by the commissars

  • No wonder the Soviet soldiers so often fought to the death.

  • Films like this reinforce my dislike of Germans.

  • Then people wonder why Russian soldiers did the things that they did when they reached Germany.

  • Germany will never brush its past away because its so horrific .Glad i am not a german what gilt to live with

  • I would have to call them son-of-a-b**** has, I hope all those that were responsible were hung

  • Right wingers try to seize on the word "socialist" (gratuitously) appearing in the NAZI name to push their revisionist notion that Nazism was an ideology of the left (never mind that they sent union leaders, true socialists and LGBTs to the gas chambers). But the patriarchal views of that society are just another of the many points they had in common with today's conservative movement - to go along with the racial supremacist sentiment that's become a mainstay of the Right.

  • Ah true equality women subjected to the horrors of wars

  • I was under the impression they were treated much better than the captured men. Maybe that occurred later.

  • collectivism by any name, socialism, communist or fascist always leads to this tragedy. Just say no.

  • Falsely implicated I when I went down status report please both you her face was disgusted

  • Spoiler alert: They were shot immediately. Some were sexually assaulted. Took 8 minutes to tell us what we already knew.

  • One full minute of BS before the thing even starts? Seriously? Skip to 1:11 everyone and give a thumbs down for that nonsense!

  • Truly an excellent video. Part of history that is often not spoken about. Thank you Dr. Mark Felton!

  • It's what's in the person, not side not even the thinking how the government wants you to think. When the Germans started entering Serbian villages, passing to their location, they did enter houses and didn't do any harm to the household members nor the animals but just seeked shelter to sleep for a day. And then, some Soviet troops and Partisans also were passing through villages and raped the female population and butchered and took the chickens and pigs. Before some immature lad who's too lazy to read this to the end cries over this, it isn't if someone is Wehraboo, Fascism supporter or whatever else, anything that a human does for politics gain is evil and forced, you can still find a good in a person.

  • German army and Russian army had no love for each other.Both sides were wrong in treating the enemy.Bolcheviks did however show their brutality as well towards German woman after invading Germany from the east.

  • Its too bad Germany and Russia weren't completely obliterated with no survivors during WW2. There is no place in this world for such despicable monsters.

  • Can you do one about Sleepy Joe Biden, his worthlessness as an incompetent halfwit and the morons that were stupid enough to vote for him?

  • I haven't seen it yet but at a guess? With strict adherence to basic standards of human decenc..... I mean, we all know they got treated with calculated evil. Like the 3rd Reich Germans treated anyone nit in their insane little club.

  • Isn't this what Soviets did to their POWs as well?

  • 777

  • Supposedly the female bomber pilots in their little cropdusters were such a pain that shooting one down was rewarded with an Iron Cross.

  • im sorry but for an Ideology to view women and men as equal even for War is complete idiocy

  • The good doctor using the term Nazi...what a good little shill.

  • No wonder why the Soviet troops when they got to Berlin raped every woman they could see when they got in German territory. It wasn't right but it was payback.

  • I still see no mention of treatment of German women by enemies in WW2 from you Mark.

  • As you know well, Soviets treated German women at the last as the revenge... It was very fair...

  • I believe the first woman enrolled in an Army as acting soldier and, late,r became officer ( Second Lieutenant) was Ecaterina Teodoroiu in WW1. Died leading her all male platoon in the battles at Marasesti Mountain pass.

  • A stark testimony against the fallacy of Collective Guilt & Punishment.

  • This video is about as pointless as can be.. the Nazi's treated everybody terribly, men and women alike. Uniform or no uniform, combatant or not..

  • Soviets raping German women nothing new here !

  • Stories like these show us that sending our daughters, sisters and mothers to die in war is a horrible idea.

    • Remember Lyudmila pavlichenko

    • @Sharpitar I don’t think so. Just war brings men earthly possessions, transcendental knowledge, eternal glory, and eternal life. The Bhagavad Gita, for example, showcases that man ought to fight to uphold its principles, as well as to appease the gods and defend their divinity. War is inseperable from humanity, sicut vita est militia super terram.

    • *and men also, war is terrible but i think you mean that is self explanatory

  • This seems a very short sighted policy. The Russian women soldiers would learn about this and fight to the end. Also it would encourage the men to carry on fighting to protect their female colleagues. The female soldiers of Kurdistan have recently shown how effective women soldiers can be. But of course, Hitler and his mob adopted many policies that were very counter productive.

  • The woman in the second picture is insanely pretty, really hope she made it anyone that harms something that pretty should suffer the most.

  • You should do a video on how the conquering Soviet army treated German women in east Germany from 45-47.

  • The same way Russian soldiers treated german woman.

  • The Only Kind of Woman that i Respect besides Myself .

  • They were very brave

  • Wehrmacht the anti-simp

  • The FIRST one minute and 12 seconds just made me sick. Before this, neither of us existed for the other. After this, it ensured the same is absolutely true.

  • But the regular German army fought a clean war..........

  • The Germans weren't the only ones who thought woman shouldn't be soldiers. Pretty much the only female soldiers in world war 2 were SOVIETS. No other military in the world was forward thinking when it came to women.

  • Este cuento debe obedecer a la propaganda Rusa, los Alemanes no asesinaban mujeres soldados en uniforme.

  • Humans are the worst

  • War is Hell on Earth, anything and everything goes...

  • I wish I could capture me one lol

  • Habt Ihr vergessen was die Sovjets ein Jahr lang mit Ihren Gefangenen gemacht haben ?

    • Ich frage mich, ob dieser Geschichtskanal auch die grausamen Massenmorde und Massenvergewaltigungen durch die Rote Pest an deutschen Kindern und Frauen durchninmt.

  • Great stuff as usual!!! Produced with Hollywood clarity and style.. 10 outta 10...😇

  • I would call those female soldiers "the Red Katyushia's" such bravery fighting women they were. Long live the Soviet Union.

  • It's astonishing that these murders were done by regular Army officers, not just Nazi fanatics. Mark may be right in saying they were indignant that ladies should invade a men's world, but that would hardly be what the senior officers used as a rationale. How did they SAY they justified the action?

  • War is terrible, both sides are guilty of horrible acts, we go spend days going into what soviets did, hell even us Americans/Brits were no better.

    • World war 2 proved alot of things like the moral high ground is a lie.

  • Would love to see some videos on partisans dogs Dr their battle experience

  • Mark Last 2 years I have watched practically all your videos since a kid I was always very keen on knowing WWII thanks again.

  • And what did the Red Army do to German and Austrian women for nearly 3 years after the war?

    • He will never answer, but many people know...

  • humans will always be humans.

  • Much more interesting would have been a video of the Red Army's war crimes, how they killed and raped peaceful Europeans, women. Also about the heroic deeds of the Red Army in Prussia in the mass extermination of the population there. it would also be interesting to hear about the heroic deeds of the English air force, the bombing of cities with peaceful inhabitants, etc .. German crimes are already adequately covered, it is no longer interesting ..

    • 2 thing to add. Stalin was very distrustful of the Jews and just before he died or was killed who really knows which he had plans drawn up to build Soviet style concentration camps for all Jewish citizens in Soviet Union. Nazi style Soviet built. Plus the Americans already laid the ground work the Nuremberg laws were just Jim crow laws they just replaced blacks with jews.

  • New SS birth machines

  • And Russian soldiers raped German women and Polish women when they defeated the Nazis

  • What is your source for the German soldiers throwing the bread "for fun"? They didn't have more to give, so they gave them what they had.

  • At the front the Romanian soldiers were probably the worst towards Soviet POWs and deserters, because they often goaded them to come over, and then shot them dead and had a laugh about it. This is from several books written by various nationalities who fought for Germany (ie Degrelle's "The Eastern Front"), which probably contributed to less Soviets surrendering/deserting & coming over. Yes, Soviet POWs starved in German captivity, but that wasn't necessarily being malicious, it was a logistics thing, especially early on. And German soldiers weren't in the habit of slaughtering them when they surrendered, either. Even though they witnessed PLENTY of cruelty committed by Red Army personnel, both on their advance and on their retreat. The reason for the fighting in the East being so much more brutal was less racial and ideological, it was because the soldiers were both subjected and witnessed cruelty from the start of the Poland campaign onward, and then later on in the Soviet Union far more frequently, than was the case when fighting ie in Denmark, Norway, France, etc. For example they found downed Luftwaffe personnel in Poland, with their eyes gauged out and their testicles+penis stuffed into their mouths. Or they found captured men of their own tied naked to a tree, in the middle of winter... or staked to the ground naked, with ice water poured over them... or mutilations... Also I know for a fact, that ie pilots from the night bomber regiment ("Night Witches") downed and captured by Romanians were subject to gang grape... I spelled that wrong on purpose...

  • WHat's wrong with executing female soldiers? is this sexist thing?

  • I wonder how does the Japanese treat Soviet Women as POWs?

  • Thank you for specifying that this was the regular german army, not the Nazi party or the SS. I think it's important to correct the notion out there that the regular army didn't participate in the atrocities.

    • Nazis really believed in what they were doing. The regular German army were just following orders i think that makes it even worse they knew better but did what they were told.

  • Better than the soviets treated German noncombatant women I'm guessing during the curiosity intro

    • @MATT CYPRESS very true

    • Just more proof in war there is no moral high ground.

  • Slavic women are tough as nails

  • The Eastern Front was made worse because it was fought by 2 Different Utopian Ideologies that believed they were so right they would fight to the death at any cost. Unfortunately Utopianism is very much abroad today.

  • War is over. What year is it???? Wow. I didn't feel a thing. Let's talk about natural things.

  • Careful what you wish for, ladies

  • I'm gonna guess not great

  • any documentary on western atrocities against woman and children?

  • This show how evil communist truly where no consent to women hood. The regular Germany army were very apathetic about women in Russia army.

  • Their ancestors are now destroying Europe again.

  • Also make video on mass torture of german women by red army after the later marched into berlin

  • Much respect for women red soldiers of the Soviet who didn't backed down from their duty to serve their country rather than sitting back at home ........ while realising the consequences what they'll face on being held prisoner............. R.I.P.

  • In Russia : people don't make à différence in between the methods of the German Invasion ... the methods of Napoléon Invasion ...for them : there were just Invaders... what ever their méthodes ... for us, the Germans were bad because of nazism ... for Russians there were bad just because they Invaded them.

  • In my senior year of high school and still haven't heard a damn thing about ww2 history in my classes glad I have the curiosity to learn myself thanks 😊

    • You never will hear that part of history in h.s.

    • Did anyone forced you to go to that schools ? No !

  • YOU WANT TO FIGHT LIKE MEN , THEN GET KILLED LIKE MEN !

  • And the German women wondered why they were treated so well when the Soviet went to Berlin

  • Fighting against your brothers and sisters. And fighting rich men's wars. Killing two birds with one stone. Depopulations and lots of shekels for the rich.

  • HOPEFULLY TREATED ADMIRALLY AND KINDLY WHEN JUDICIAL WAS JUST TOO FIERCE AND REINFORCED BLOOD RELATIONS ACROSS MULTIPLE LANDS AND NATIONS. PEOPLE WERE NOT NICE. VERY UPPER LIPPED AND STERN WITH ONE ANOTHER. MUCH LESS OF IT IN TODAYS WORLD.

    • ALTHOUGH SOME CONSTANTLY DWELL AND REMENISE IN THE OUTDATED HISTORY FROM NOW.

  • I am a millionaire and I am really thinking of offering this guy a job

  • I like how Wehrmacht hated Soviets more than they actually hated the Jews. War is hell, but I don’t think differently of Wehrmacht for their treatments of women, ok maybe the sexual assault, but rest is to me fair. If the women was equal men in the eyes of Soviets, surely they should get an equal treatment. This is only how Germany treated female soldiers, but from my knowledge they were far more easy going on the civilians. Unlike Soviets who attacked everyone they came upon, civilian or enemy soldier alike. Soviets we’re the truest evil in WWII, even general Patton suggested to side with Germany and beat the Soviets. Think about it, that must say something. I think it’s something Mark should look into, not many knows of the Soviets treatments of Germans (soldier and civilians) and the suggestion from General Patton.

  • Hello good evening.sleepwell.

  • The treatment of Soviet female prisoners is abhorrent! Very, very sad!

  • Thank you for pointing out so clearly that all those atrocities were largely commited by regular German army troops. It never ceases to amaze me how many people still regard Wehrmacht a formation exhibiting high morale and attrribute all war crimes in the East to SS units or Einsatzgruppen.

  • If you think about it, this wasn't too long ago. I have a sudden need to be thankful for all the amazing females in my life.

  • @7:37 said many soviet women were horribly sexually assaulted before they were killed ! Any legitimate and verifiable claim exists ! The Wehrmacht was in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland and and and, all at the same time while in Russia, never heard (of any significance) of their female populations made such claims during or after the war. Russian soldiers in Berlin, over 2 million women were raped regardless of age and often one woman gang raped.

    • @Денис Лютанов Yep, Germans left Paris and all of France intact, wish I can say the same about German towns and cities pulverized night and day with no mercy and done so after the war was practically won and over with ! Most of the cities levelled had little to no military significance.

    • @genesis1 There is no need to compare the attitude of the Germans towards the French and the Soviets. The Germans never called the French Untermesh, and not one French city was destroyed.

    • @Денис Лютанов It’s not talked about in “any” country or culture, not just Russia. The German army was in Paris as if it was Berlin, nine happened, they even were required for purchases, food, clothes, toothbrush etc etc

    • If you were raped, would you also tell everyone around about it? In Russian culture, it is not common to talk about this.

  • "Partisans" is just Lügensprache for criminals.

  • bile i geroi bile i Iude spasaushie svou chkyrky i one esti i budyt do skonchania vremen

  • After all that immense cruelty that Soviet people faced, it's to wonder how some people nowadays claim that Soviet response, once they entered Germany was a barbaric one, indeed was a barbaric one, no wonder, but again who started all this.....?

  • definitely alpha behavior here.
