I agree info
Yes, Stalin wasn't fit to command a single troop, let alone all the forces of the USSR. Zhukov, nonetheless, did well to carry out his orders and keep the city for 900+ days. The cost of life was high (I've read estimates are around 800,000) but please don't get me wrong, I have no admiration for Stalin, nor do I agree with his kind of politics. I just think it's a tribute to human spirit that the unprepared and unsupported men and women of Leningrad did so well to keep the city in their impossible position. There's no worse scenario than being shot by both sides, as Zhokov himself was to find out in later life.
Thanks for the background.
