The German dilemma was expressed neatly in an OKW
memorandum from May 1942:
Although the entire Army Group B was most definitely desperately overextended, to explain the defeat of the 6th army purely as a result of insufficient support from Berlin (which was partially caused by misleading reports about the Russian resistance sent to the OKW

will strive to facilitate all of the German players' needs.

Fifty-five years ago the Red Army--at the staggering cost of 350 thousand killed--took Berlin, cleared Hitler's Reichskanzlei, unfurled a Soviet flag over the Reichsrag, and jointly with the other Allied forces accepted the unconditional surrender of the Third Reich from OKW
