Strategy and Tactics / Re: How To Stop A Swarm Of Soviet Troops?

Spieel has a very good strategy there.

In fact, a very good defense is offense. (General Patton's line)

I think properly-placed MGs and Mortars might do the job to pin the Ruskies, once they're pinned or busy shooting at your static defense positions, you could flank the attacking force with a platoon of infantry or maybe some 3 PzIVs or Infantry w/Stug III/IV might clear them all out. And on top of that, a swarm of Soviet Infantry can't be defeated just by flanking. Your flanking force might get flanked or pinned in too by Soviet positions behind the Soviets.Ready some troops to attack their lightly-guarded HQ.

Eastern Front / Re: Why did Germany lose on the Eastern Front

1.) Germany didn't have enough resources to supply the offensive in the East.
2.) Germany ain't prepared to launch the 'Blitzkrieg' during Winter.
3.) Hitler fought too many fronts for his Armed Forces to manage , hold and secure since 1943. Just like North Africa, Italy, Russia and the Balkans.
4.) Stalingrad, Leningrad and Moscow were not the only situation why the Ostheer lost. Since the start of Barbarossa, Germany and the Soviet Union, made several encirclements, pockets of resistance and delayed objectives. This is one of the factors why the Ostheer delayed their attack on Moscow, thus, losing enough tanks, supplies and men on the Army Group Center.
5.) Hitler focused on three different and incredibly huge fronts, some of his General's suggestions were to take on Kiev first, then Moscow, and also signing a peace treaty to Britain first. (This is why the Luftwaffe weakened on all fronts)

And for my 'personal' reason why Germany lost on the East, it's because of his obsession to Stalin, basically, Hitler's quite a douche taking a not-so-important city with Stalin's name on it and cost him 1 army. Why not call him Obsessed?
