Among the many questions which beset German Air Force commanders when Russia was invaded on 22 June 1941, and throughout the war, none was more important than that of possible Russian reactions to the applications of German airpower. Luftwaffe operations during the war in the East were decisively influenced by the inherent nature and disposition of the Russian soldier, his formal and military education (or lack of it), his equipment, and his combat tactics, many of which were derived from actual experience in specific areas. In the eyes of the German commanders, their Russian opponents appeared to be a mentally lethargic lot, inclined toward stolid insensibility sometimes contrary, while at other times taciturn and crafty. The Russians, often so communicative and trusting, had a strong latent tendency toward excessive ambition and extreme ruthlessness.
