It is a fact that under equal conditions, large-scale battles and whole wars are won by troops which have a strong will for victory, clear goals before them, high moral standards, and devotion to the banner under which they go into battle.
-- Quoted in The Military Quotation Book (2002) by James Charlton

Nazis did not expect Soviet resistance to be so strong. The deeper they moved into this country's territory, the more fierce it became. When Hitler's armies approached Moscow, every man and woman here thought it imperative to resist the enemy. And that resistance grew by the day. The enemy was sustaining heavy losses, one after another. In fact, Hitler's best troops perished here. Nazis believed the Red Army was not capable of defending Moscow, but their schemes failed.
-- Quoted in The Voice of Russia (2005) by Olga Troshina

Zhukov was the only person who feared no one. He was not afraid of Stalin.
-- Marshal Timoshenko (1895-1970), Soviet military commander
