Quote of the Day: General Friedrich Paulus, Commander of the 6th Army, Charged with Taking Stalingrad

“I believe in victory. But you know what? There’s something quite senseless and unnecessary about the whole struggle for this city . . . we shall capture the Tractor Factory. But that won’t help us cover our flank. The Russians are going to attack — von Weichs is quite sure. None of our bluffing will stop that.”

— life and fate, p. 382
