          >Suvorov, born Vladimir Bogdanovich Rezun, comes from a military family of mixed Ukrainian-Russian descent; his father, Bogdan Vasilyevich Rezun, was a veteran of WWII and a Ukrainian, while his mother Vera Spiridonovna Rezun (Gorevalova) is Russian. According to his own statements, Suvorov considers himself, his wife and children to be Ukrainians. He was born in the village of Barabash, Primorsky Krai; raised in Ukraine's Cherkasy, where his father served. The family subsequently settled in Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic after his father's retirement.

          Slav comes from Slovan, which is what Slavs call themselves. And Slovan comes from slovo, which means word. Slovan could be roughly translated word-er (as in runner, climber, etc). On the other hand, Germans are called Němci/Niemci, which pretty much means mutes, or "the mute ones". So Slav means "one who speaks words", IE someone who speaks the same language as me.

          Slave is a derivative of Slav, all you need to know. Also real men do Turbofolk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN1oZifRv28

              From Middle English, from Old French sclave, from Medieval Latin sclāvus (“slave”), from Late Latin Sclāvus (“Slav”), because Slavs were often forced into slavery in the Middle Ages. The Latin word is from Byzantine Greek Σκλάβος (Sklábos), see that entry and Slav for more.

          Even better: read "Russia in 1839" by Marquis de Custine.
          Especially funny since he originally thought the west became a bunch of degenerate liberal gays, went to Russia to get material to remind Europe how proper aristocracy needs to work, then hit the wall of Russian corruption and general shitshow and got heavily disillusioned.

            >"In Russia, everything you notice, and everything that happens around you, has a terrifying uniformity; and the first thought that comes into the traveler's mind, as he contemplates this symmetry, is that such entire consistency and regularity, so contrary to the natural inclination of mankind, cannot have been achieved and could not survive without violence."
            >"The nature of its Government is interference, negligence and corruption. You rebel against the notion that you could become accustomed to all this, yet you do become accustomed to it. In that country, a sincere man would be taken for an idiot."
            >"A wealth of unnecessary and petty precautions here engenders a whole army of clerks, each of whom carries out his task with a degree of pedantry and inflexibility, and a self-important air solely designed to add significance to the least significant employment."

                Rooskies are seditious motherfuckers to the core. Subversion is a state-approved outlet for their own frustrations. A sort of ongoing two-minute hate, any qualms they have regarding their own government is projected onto an outside force, and the crab in the bucket syndrome that is prevalent in Russian society means that they are only happy when others are reduced to their level, IE, that of a slave.
                The Russians simply love their chains because it makes their environment predictable, or in other words, ordered. For your average Ivan, to live in a damp cell for an entire lifetime with regular bread and vodka gibs, is deemed preferable to having to fend for yourself in a scary and chaotic world. And thus, Russia is the autocrat's paradise. The Mongols managed to scar an entire bloodline and made Russians pathologically terrified of any hint of disorder and thus innovation.

              Kadyrov is less of an islamist and more of a cult of personality autocrat puppet. He’s under the facade of a devout Muslim to satisfy the very conservative Islamic Chechen republic. Much of the Chechen opposition against kadyrov and his boss Putin are in fact Islamists and other Jihadi types. Unlike other post-Soviet states and republics, places like Chechnya and Dagestan dropped secular ism and doubled down on Islam but some might say they never fully adopted secular Soviet rule in the first place.

            It is legitimately one of the most depressing things I've ever read and that's saying something
            I think the highlight for me was when Y.H.N found an abandoned apartment he basically 'played house' in for a few days, pretending like he was back in the civilian world, had a stable job and a wife and a lovely apartment to come home to, and eventually had to abandon it when his unit got moved around again. Very poignant.

              One of the big take aways from it is that there's very little unit discipline and everybody is more or less looking out for themselves, even to the point where a water truck has to be guarded by another unit because the older mobiks hoard all the water for themselves and sell it to others. Ammo routinely goes missing, was sold to Chechens, etc. Just general crazy shit or things that would make sense if they were isolated incidents but instead are endemic to every day life.

Seeing as the only people who ever bother even trying to actually improve life or speak out against injustice in that miserable excuse for a place are garden gnomes, Balts, Ukrainians, Belarussians, Germans, Georgians, Chechens, or Asians.

                Russians are indeed morons. Individually they might be fine - like, if you have a couple of Russians in a mostly Latvian class, or at a mostly Latvian office, or a mostly Latvian friend group, more than likely they'll adapt and act civilized. But any Russian dominated space is a degenerate shithole. Russian schools are where pretty much all of the teenage gangs reside, Russian-dominated districts have pretty much all the crime and urban decay, if you see a group of people chimping out on the street it will invariably be composed of Russians and Russian-adjacents (churkas)

                Alexander III did this as well. He was an undereducated reactionary who was keen on secret police but even HE looked around, said "blyat, Europe and the nips are going to eat us alive if we keep wallowing in shit" and oversaw the expansion of the trend of improvement and investment that his father had kicked off and which were leading to Russia having double-digit annual GDP growth throughout the back half of the 19th century, lessening corruption, great strides in industry, urbanization, infrastructure and literacy, improving trade relations, etc.

              Ethnic Russians themselves have lived under mentally retarded, brutal and authoritarian leadership for such a long time that I'm beginning to theorize that the yearning for freedom and desire to improve's one life, instead of miserably resigning one's self to his doomed existence, is a genetic component. Thus the Russians have, through artificial selection, "evolved" into the most servile, brutal and uncaring people you can possibly have.

So far until one of these mobster groups emerges supreme as the new king shit. Most infamous of these episodes was the last russian civil war which ended up with the bolsheviks gangsters securing power with all of the pain and terror that followed.

                The fundamental problem with russia is that their history has essentially landed them in an inescapable hole. It's a gigantic country, most of which is relatively sparsely populated and severely underdeveloped, leading to extreme dysfunction and internal strife. But those far flung regions wouldn't be functioning states on their own, because they have no economic potential to speak of and they would be double or triple landlocked with only the trans-siberian railway acting as their lifeline. Russia is essentially an empire in perpetual collapse that can never actually collapse

Even if they present themselves as Russian (notice how most patriots from Russia tend to be asiatic, turkic, etc in origin), in actuality, their ethnic background is dotted from all over Europe and Asia. Russia has been multiethnic for a damn while, and with the USSR, it only made mixing easier. This might be obvious to some, but its retarded to see people looking for “Russian” Russians when there are almost none. Every Russian is some kind of *insert ethnicity*-Russian.

              I know in Ukraine officers were getting fragged all over the place during the opening days/months of the war. There was a vid posted here not too long ago of a vatnik officer beating the mobiks for carrying wounded back from the front, he had his bodyguards hold them at gunpoint while he beat them. I bet officers in the Chechen war did the same thing, there's always that one guy who might pull a knife or a grenade when his boss gets in his face for not dying horribly so Putin can bump up his net worth.

                Patton committed a dramatically lesser offense of slapping a pair of soldiers who were hospitalized for illness that he mistook for malingerers and when this came to light, there were calls by a number of number of Congressmen and US Army officers to have him immediately removed from command. While Patton's career was not immediately threatened (both Eisenhower and Marshall agreed that his talents were too indispensable for him to be fired over what was essentially a PR scandal), it, along with his involvement in the Biscari massacre (which was honestly a far more disturbing lapse in judgement), did contribute to his being passed over for Omar Bradley as commander of Operation Overlord and he spent most of the next year in command of a phony army as part of pre-Normandy ruses. It also caused a rift between Patton and his mentor John Pershing that effectively ended their decades-long friendship. The Slappening was nonetheless a demonstration of Patton's impulsivity and occasional but shockingly poor judgement that arguably made him unfit for any higher levels of command such as the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

          Russians lack neuronal capacity and have no morals, thats why they are subhumans and all invaders should be shot.

          Sure and you share blood with everyone from Quebec to Mexico. What are you, some third-gen Amerimutt who's a third Irish and a third polish or some vague nonsense? Get fucked with your lack of identity.

          There's a world of difference between Slavs and generic off-brand mongol mystery meat. If you can't see it, you're probably just as mystery meat yourself and subconsciously try to deflect.

          And who the fuck do you share your blood with? You're a mutt, yet that has nothing to do with how you behave. Fucking racialist gays. Do you realize how far Slavic inhabited lands stretch anyway? How many different peoples were assimilated and synthetsized into current ethnic geoups. Russians are a mix of previously Finnic, Turkic and Iranic groups and yet look at them now.

      I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Slavs, is in fact, Wends and Slavs, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Cultured Europeans and Asiatic Barbarians. Slavs are not an ethnic group unto itself, but merely a linguistic group made somewhat useful to humanity through Wends, a vital group thanks to which Europe exists.

      Many in the uninformed public users mistake Wends for Slavs every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the Wendish peoples are often called "Western Slavs", and many are not aware that those are the Wends, a Central European core people. There really are Slavs, but Wends are no part of it. Wends are different, much more civilized, individualistic and ingenious. This is essential for you to realize. Slavs are often thought to include Wends, but basically it's Slavs with Wends added. All the so called "Western Slavs" are really Wends.

          They took over this little barn in the mountains from another, more fucked up group of vatniks, and there was a badly neglected cow there. They tried to feed it and nurse it back to health but it wasn't working and the cow was clearly suffering and sick so they took it to the edge of a cliff and shot it, and felt really bad about it.

So when she realized what was going on, she closed her eyes and turned her head down to her shooters as if she was accepting her fate. Fucking brutal.

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

        Slav comes from Slovan, which is what Slavs call themselves. And Slovan comes from slovo, which means word. Slovan could be roughly translated word-er (as in runner, climber, etc). On the other hand, Germans are called Němci/Niemci, which pretty much means mutes, or "the mute ones". So Slav means "one who speaks words", IE someone who speaks the same language as me.

What reason would literally every slav nation, including half of europe and half of Asia have to call themselves "we are slaves lol". Anon

        is probably close to the truth.

        No beef with brits here but for some reason I always see brits and mutts post the slav(e) meme on pol, no idea what their obsession with that is.

          Slave comes from Slav, not the other way around. The word slave is derived from the notion that Roman and Muslim rulers would mostly take Eastern Europeans as slaves and bring them around their empires, so those Slavs got changed to slave through slang and shit.

      Ukraine itself actually had a fairly serious problem with street children up until the 2010s, but even then it seems they at least tried to address the problem with social welfare and charity rather than just ignoring or exploiting them as the Russians did.

          Yeah, plus pilots are expensive and time-consuming to retain so the service wants to retain them so it'll do what it can to prevent conditions that will make them want to quit. The author actually mentions dedo being a big problem among officers as well, and the main reason the Russian military is fucked, it's not quite as bad as among conscripts but bad enough that it drives any decent officers out of the service before they get to any kind of senior ranks and it results in a whole military where everybody above Captain or maybe the occasional Major is a total piece of shit, but even they realize that you can't afford to have people like them flying your expensive and tactically/strategically important airplanes.

          Another reason might be that treating soldiers like shit when they have the means to fuck off to another country is a proven bad idea
          Just look at the Belenko MiG-25 incident for example

      Ok, Anon, I'll share some books I like with you.
      One of my all time favourite war memoirs is "Quartered Safe Out Here" by George MacDonald Fraser.
      At times poignant, and at other times quite funny, it is one of the best accounts of the Burma Campaign from the point of view of the ordinary soldier that I have yet to read.

        If you want a detailed rundown of a modernish battle, I would highly recommend "We Were Soldiers Once...And Young" by Lt. Gen. Howard Moore which gives the overall commanders understanding of the battle from both the perspective of the US soldiers and their NVA opponents; as well as accounts from the grunts and the support staff as well.
        It's a lengthy read, but if you want a real in-depth analysis of what it is like to conduct a modernish battle, I can't think of any better books.

          If you want something more academic, then I would suggest "Armies of Sand" by Kenneth Pollack which goes into detail about why Arab armies struggle to compete against everyone in the modern world and looks at their performance from 1945-2018.
          NGL, it's a bit of a slog in places, but if you stick with it, you'll have a much better understanding of why the Middle East always seems to be one giant clusterfuck where no one really has a firm grasp on anything.

          I'll finish this with perhaps a quite controversial opinion: With The Old Breed had a terrible editor that ruined the trustworthiness of the book.
          After having this book hyped up for me for years, I was really disappointed that it was written in such a way that it made Sledge seem like a unreliable narrator; especially towards the end of the book.
          It's full of moments where something terrible happens, like a sentry falling asleep which leads to a couple of marines getting killed or a wounded civilian being mercy-killed and the way it has been edited makes it seem that Sledge was the one responsible for it, but he passed the blame onto someone else to avoid being punished for it.
          Also the numbers given for casualties or the numbers of tanks involved in a particular engagement will change, sometimes even on the same page, despite Sledge continually writing throughout the book that he has studied the records extensively and gone over the numbers involved multiple times.
          It's a shame, because for a book written from half-remembered memories and diary scraps from 36 years ago, it's a really solid tale and I believe that the man himself is being honest and truthful about what he experienced. It was just poorly handled by whoever had the job of reading through the final draft to make sure it was ready for print.

    Here are a few
    >Vietnam
    I've read several, but Chickenhawk (nonfiction) is by far the best. It's an account from a helicopter pilot, and hence fragmentory, but really good. Apparently beloved by all US helicopter pilots, but great even if you don't care about helicopters.

    >Pacific front of WWII
    Fires on the Plain (fiction). A starving soldier wonders around the jungles of the Philippines near the end of WWII. Great if you like suffering. His nonfiction Prison Diary (nonfiction) is also good, but it's mostly about how 'hey, why are Americans this nice to their PoWs?' It's an account of the authors experiences as a PoW (captured during the retaking of the Philippines), and about how well Americans treat their prisoners for some reason and his coming to terms with the war ending. Both from a private's perspective.

    >Spanish Civil War
    Mine Were of Trouble (nonfiction). A British volunteer on the Nationalist side. Not 4chanwank, since it's pretty clear that Franco's side aren't very pleasant (e.g. the author has to execute a PoW). The author is an officer, so small unit tactics are described.

    >Syria
    Desert Sniper (nonfiction). British volunteer helping the Kurds. Mostly deals with how incompetent yet passionate they are. Also a small segment showing how unlike the US, Russia does not care about civilian casualties.

    >Other
    Beasts, Men and Gods (mixture of fiction & nonfiction). Recount of the authors escape from Russia during the Russian Civil War. More of an adventure novel, but very engaging. Encounters 'the Mad Baron' Roman von Ungern-Sternberg who sees himself as the reincarnation of Genghis Khan and thus is leading an army to liberate Mongolia from both the Bolsheviks and the Chinese.

        He's the highlight of the book
        >Fifteen miles further on we crossed a battlefield, where the third great battle for the independence of Mongolia had been fought. Here the troops of Baron Ungern clashed with six thousand Chinese moving down from Kiakhta to the aid of Urga. The Chinese were completely defeated and four thousand prisoners taken. However, these surrendered Chinese tried to escape during the night. Baron Ungern sent the Transbaikal Cossacks and Tibetans in pursuit of them and it was their work which we saw on this field of death. There were still about fifteen hundred unburied and as many more interred, according to the statements of our Cossacks, who had participated in this battle. The killed showed terrible sword wounds; everywhere equipment and other debris were scattered about. The Mongols with their herds moved away from the neighborhood and their place was taken by the wolves which hid behind every stone and in every ditch as we passed. Packs of dogs that had become wild fought with the wolves over the prey.

    Read Picrel (Chickenhawk - Robert Mason) or your mother will die in her sleep tonight (in Minecraft)

    I'd recommend to both military history types, as well as anyone with an interest in rotary wing aviation.
    Excellent account of what it was like to fly Huey ass-and-trash missions in 1966 Vietnam.
    Stories include hunter/killer missions, acting as a command ship during Linebacker II, flying in a state of near-delirium due to back to back missions.

    Towards the end Mason discusses his struggle with PTSD. He elaborates on this in the follow-up Chickenhawk - Back In The World, which I would also recommend.

    The Centurions and The Praetorians by Jean Larteguy
    Fictional account of the French wars in Vietnam and Algeria written by a combat correspondent who was embedded with the Paratroopers.
    It's not super heavy on actual combat for the most part but is a fantastic story of the soldiers having to fight for a country that they feel is degenerating heavily.
    The part that stuck with me the most is one officer talks about the recurring dream he's having where he's a soldier in a dystopian future for a walled city where the only two types of civilians it has are those who do nothing but have drug fueled orgies and those who are hermits who never leave their house and contribute nothing to society. The city is besieged by barbarians and he constantly wonders why he even bothers fighting to defend it but he can't get rid of his sense of duty to fight for it.
    They also made a movie of it and it looks pretty good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVr-Fjef8wo

    As the quote goes "no nation, no people carry chains of slavery as a symbol of pride". Thats russians (moskovites) for you.
    Also, cult of death and misery (that is perverted and twisted Orthodox Christianity, to which they are apostates).

      It's hard to explain, even having just read the book, but I think it was basically PTSD mindfuckery. He had a hard time adapting back to civilian life, felt like everything was pointless compared to war, felt like everybody was fake as fuck, etc., and wanted to be back in the shit with the bros where shit made sense to him despite being completely nonsensical and miserable most of the time. Seems like the second time around was enough for him, though he did go on to be a journalist covering stuff that put him back into dangerous situations.

    Armies of Sand is pretty legit. Analyses why Arab armies are consistently so shit. The gist of it is pretty similar to the Russians, nobody wants to take the initiative because anything outside of total subordination to the state/local warlord is taboo and gets you punished. Everything has to be directed upwards to the one guy in charge, and by the time the artillery pieces get their orders they're firing at empty fields miles away from the front.
    The Butcher's Trail is pretty interesting. It's about the hunt for war criminals after the breakup of Yugoslavia. At one point in the story most of who they're going to capture are behind bars and awaiting trial. Some high ranking Croats, Serbs and Bosnians are all stored in the same facility and share the common areas. Most of them got on really well. They had football teams, cooked together etc etc. It really drove home how little most of the people orchestrating the massacres really cared. I also liked a story in the book where some Bosnian says "fuck it" and moves back to his border village after the war. He was taken from it and placed in a camp while his property was burned down, so he built a new home in the same spot as a big middle finger. The guy he bought the steel from building his new house was an ex-camp commandant, while his new postman was one of his camp guards

    >He gives us another triumphant look and no one challenges him. This sort of conversation is typical for the army. No one, from the regimental commander to the rank-and-file soldier, understands why he is here. No one sees any sense in this war; all they see is that this war has been bought off from start to finish. It has been waged incompetently from the very beginning, and all those mistakes by the general staff, the defense minister and the supreme command have to be paid for with the lives of soldiers. For what purpose are these lives being laid down? The ‘restoration of constitutional order,’ the ‘counter-terrorist operation’ are nothing but meaningless words that are cited to justify the murder of thousands of people

      He completely avoids talking about the rape side of things. He also makes a point that he never does any form of dedovschina himself and mostly associates with other soldiers who think it's retarded as well, especially in the second war where he's a contract soldier and has the clout and legal ability (since he can cancel his contract and go home at any time he wants) to avoid the guys who do it and squad up with other guys like him. He could of course just be lying but his disgust with the practice is really the theme of the whole book so I kind of believe it.

      I read that a while ago and it felt like 95% of that book were about traveling all over Europe while opening and closing various bank accounts and transferring money. And the last bits of genuine mercenary action at the very end were disappointing.

      That book should be called The Dogshit of War.

        Just like finding out fighting a war is mostly sitting on your ass, or traveling, rather than fighting?

      Can't go wrong with Le Carre. The Spy who Came in From the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy are excellent, but all his books are heavily immersed in the espionage world. Watch the Tinker Tailor and Smiley's People tv series too, starring Alec Guinness. Those two are among the best there is.

      with Le Carre
      Also the aforementioned Suvorov with "GRU" and "Aquarium"
      and maybe "Comrade J" by Pete Earley

      Red Sparrow by Jason Matthews. The guy was a genuine CIA operative who was trained in and did all the things he writes about in his book.

    Makes you wonder what similar books russians will write about the current war and what stories they will tell.

    Read pic related recently.

    Started off really fascinating, but the last 4th of the book or so he became a fucking boomer blaming violent media as the reason for why there's so many school shootings and shit.

    Once you get to the ptsd parts stop reading.

    I see this book often. This is something like a "Blood Meridian" but in reality?

      Yeah, absolutely inconceivable (to the average westerner) squalor, depravity, violence, cruelty and despair throughout the whole book. I read it once but I cant bring myself to read it again because I know it wont do my depression the least bit of good.

        Bugmenot?

        Also try searching for an epub version, often much easier to find without false positives than a PDF.

    That implies that they're normal outside of war.
