As for your enemy …

“Do not count days; do not count miles. Count only the number of Germans you have killed. Kill the German – this is your mother’s prayers. Kill the German – This is the cry of your Russian earth. Do not waver. Do not let up. Kill.” – Ilya Ehrenburg, quoted in Stalingrad, by Anthony Beever.

Ruthless. Certain. And the German believed the same about the Russian.
