The soldiers of the Red Army frequently demonstrated their lethality in close quarters assaults. Fighting to rid the beloved Motherland of the fascist invaders, they show little mercy. they were not permitted to stop and take cover for fear that they would not advance again. Stalin purged the officer corps before the war, removing any officer even remotely suspected of hostility to the regime. Combined with the terrible losses suffered during the first few months of the war, this left the Red Army desperately short of trained officers. To compensate, their tactics were reduced to blunt frontal assaults. Commanders dictated how, where, and when their subordinates would attack, and tolerated no argument. They then expected their attacks to be carried out until successful — or until there were no soldiers left to attack.
