Battle of Halbe

On the 2nd Alinea the 13th Army needs to be 12th ARMY.

Battle of Halie
Walther Wedck Theodor Busse
The Battle of Halie, fought in 1945 in the last days of the
Third Reich by the tth army and 13th army of the german
whermacht.
General Walther Wedck and Genetal Theodor Busse both
made a plan to surrender to the west, by opening a corridor
from berlin Northan rds trough the ring of Soviets around
Berlin.
The tth and 11th Army managed to regroup in Berlin through
fierce fighting, one regrouped they had numerous attempts to
push Northan rds like a r, 2 attempts failed, the rrd
though, succeeded.
Heavy fighting results in heavy lossed on both sides, with a
number of 210, 000 German soldiers breaking through 280, 000
Soviet troops the managed to create a corridor from Central
Berlin through the Halie and send Civilians and soldiers Northan rds.
On the 28th of April around 25, 000 Civilians and troops
managed to surrender to the west, remnants of the tth and
11th Army, which have been split, continued fighting through
the corridor attempting to surrender to West, Because of the
fear with what the Soviets would do to them.
Summarized;
Walther Wedck and Theodor Busse ignored
Adolf Hitler' s his orders, instead making a
plan for their soldiers and German citizens to
surrender to the West instead of being Raped,
thrown into Gulags or getting killed by the
Soviets.
These 2 men are good guys, they did what
they had to do, defend their people.

This sounds like it inspired Inglourious Basterds.

Did you know that in actual fact, inglorious bastards is loosely based on a real life event called the Second World War?

Not many people know about it so quentin tarantino changed the story a little bit to make it more interesting to the modern day audience!

Why should we stay and fight? Lets pull back our armed forces and give up and get genocided by the Americans insted of the Soviets. Good job. We shure did save all those German women from being raped and all those men from being killed by the Soviets. Good job Wenck, good job Busse, great fucking job you two.

>western faggots being worse than the soviets

I hate both but then the western allies were still the lesser of two evils at the end of the day if you think of it.

The Soviet's raped and pillaged their way east. The Soviet soldiers themselves were treated like shit. Soviet citizens were even more expendable. How they treated others was even worse.

The Brits and American's carpet bombed countless men, women and children and elderly. Huddled in their homes. Terrified, defenseless, and innocent.

The Japanese where inhuman in their treatment of the Chinese, and we wouldn't treat an animal the way they treated their captives. Of all the atrocities committed by the Nazi's, they don't hold a candle to the pure creativity and sadism of the Japanese.

Then of course you have the Nazi's. Who, although well deserving of the bad publicity, weren't particularly more guilty of war crimes than the others.

Basically, it was a shit time to be alive. War is hell. Fear, fanaticism, and desperation bring out the monsters inside people.

If I were a German would I prefer to be captured by the Western forces? No doubt. My odds of human treatment were drastically better. But all sides had blood on their hands. There were no white knights. Just lesser degrees of evil. Even if it were necessary evil.

>good guys

>Incompetent generaling led to 210 000 Wehrmacht casualties
>In 1945, most of those soldiers are conscripts and civilians

Not very good, then.

Doesn't necessarily mean they are good guys. They love their own people that's true, but how many slav civilians did they kill while plowing through the east front prior to halbe..
