When thinking about World War Two, many people believe that the Americans “won the war” with the invasions at D-Day, but it is important to remember that there was more than just one front in the war in Europe and with the other front comes another story. Many more Russians fought and died in World War Two than Americans did. The war on the western front was also harsher than that on the eastern front. While many people recognize Hitler’s aggression against Jews, not many people think about the racial aggression he had against the slavs, their are many documented cases of Hitler describing them as “sub-human.” These views are easily seen when one looks at his policy of war against the eastern front, total annihilation of any resistance. German forces would often strip towns of food and destroy their shelter, leading to starvation, that is if they weren’t killed for opposing the German forces. The eastern front was also the only front to have Einsatzgruppen soldiers follow behind the normal soldiers to wipe out civilians. The eastern front was also brutal with prisoners, while the prisoners on the western front had some living conditions available to them, the eastern fronts’ prisoners commonly faced death on either side. While many people talk about World War Two being devastating and terrible on the western front, it is also important to note that the eastern front was even worse, with more casualties, both civilian and military, and poorer living conditions with all out destruction being the purpose of war.
