Hard History

Just finished listening to Dan Carlin's "Ghosts of the Ostfront," which goes in depth into the German-Soviet war front in WWII.


I don't know if I want to go home and load one of my old Nazi-killer WWII games up or just sit in a corner in the fetal position.  That was not a happy time and place.

You really should go over there and give it a listen, if you have the time.  That is some history we do not want to repeat.

If you're interested in that period and place in history, I'd suggest reading Bloodlines -

It details how both the Soviet and German governments tried to pretty much exterminate a huge chunk of the civilian population of Eastern Europe. Not a very happy read, but an excellent book.

I think I'm probably Ostfronted out for now, but I'll keep it in mind!
