When the German surrendered in World War II, there were still 7 million troops, why not fight

During World War II, Britain's V1 and V2 missiles caused Britain a lot of pain

As we all know, in the Second World War, the mention of Germany was a powerful synonym, and it has successively overturned several European established powers with its own strength. France fell, the Charles de Gaulle government was forced into exile, and Britain was even more miserable in the confrontation with Germany. If it were not across the strait, the fall of Britain would be a matter of time, but in the end, Germany would fall into the mire of the Soviet Union. The war failed.

German troops invading the Soviet Union were basically elite

Although Germany was defeated in World War II, the loss of its real strength was not very serious. According to authoritative statistics, the total force of German deaths in World War II was about 4.85 million, only about half of the number of Soviets killed. In fact, until the defeat of Germany, Germany still had a very powerful living force, about 7 million people. Many people are more puzzled. Since there are so many troops, why should Germany surrender? There are three most important reasons.

The first is the issue of strength. The so-called 7 million living force army is actually a lot of water. Although only 4.85 million people were killed in Germany during World War II, all the soldiers killed were veterans who had been strictly trained before the war. It was a very heavy loss for Germany. The later army was all inexperienced rookies, rather than cannon fodder. If we continue to fight, Germany will follow in the footsteps of the Soviet Union, and a large number of adult men will be eliminated on the battlefield, which is not conducive to the subsequent development of a country. In fact, there are already many baby soldiers who defend the German mainland at the end of World War II.

The blitz launched by Germany in World War II required extremely high tactics and weapons.

The second point is the issue of supplementary equipment. In World War II, Germany and a number of powerful countries were enemies, and they won successively, relying on the cooperation of advanced technology and equipment. Without a large amount of advanced equipment, Blitz will be impossible to talk about, but since 1943, the United States and the United Kingdom began a strategic bombing of Germany (it has begun in 40 years, but before it was small), often with hundreds of bombers. It dispatched and bombed Germany's important military and civilian targets, such as bearing factories, railway transportation hubs, etc., which forced Germany's advanced equipment production capacity to drop significantly. This so-called 7 million army does not even have basic decent weapons, and the most basic infantry light weapons have severely simplified production.

Third, because Germany has a small territory and its own products are not abundant. During World War II, Germany and Japan shared a common idea, that is, raising war through war, and continuously plundering the strategic resources of other countries to war for themselves. Blood transfusion. By the time the Soviet Union attacked Berlin, the place Germany had occupied was almost liberated, and its strategic resource reserves were scarce. Even if the factory was intact, it could not produce enough weapons and equipment.

In contrast, the Soviet Union is much better than Germany. This is the advantage of the vast land and resources. Basically, all types of minerals and fossil fuels can be self-sufficient. At the same time, they have a great strategic depth and can be consumed slowly with Germany. Although a large number of living targets were eliminated by Germany, it was relatively easy to mobilize to join the army in this state of war. These newly added soldiers have already become veterans when they hit Berlin from the Soviet Union. In fact, the Soviet soldiers at the end of the Second World War were almost devastating to Germany. This is also incomparable to German recruits, so Germany had no choice but to surrender.
