As you will read in the attached article, a column composed of an assortment of letters removed from the thousands of bloodied feldgrau-clad corpses piled-high outside the city of Stalingrad, life on the German home front was harsh:

"There is a sort of gloomy competition between the soldiers and the folks at home...'Remember how well I looked, what rosy cheeks? Now I look old, pale, sad. I can tell you that it isn't too pleasant to be on the home front either.'"
