It is generally accepted that of the total German military combat deaths in WWII, which numbered about 3.4 million, about 75% and possibly 80% were on the eastern front. Additionally, up to June 1944 (Normandy) the percentage was even higher since there was little combat elsewhere that generated large casualties. German material losses on the eastern front were also huge representing over 80% of artillery, tank and truck losses. Aircraft losses were about 50/50 on the eastern and western front. Of course, naval losses were almost exclusively in the west, even including defensive actions taken against Soviet attempts to massacre civilians on the open seas late in the war in the Baltic. It is said that, 9 out of 10 German soldiers killed inwere on the Eastern Front.
The Soviet Union killed the most Germans of the three major Allied Powers. This happened during the large-scale fighting on the Eastern Front. German military deaths were huge on the Eastern Front, and civilian losses (missing & killed) were extremely large. Likewise, in return the Soviet Union had the largest number of deaths from the Germans as any of the Allied nations.
The language of the Jews throughout eastern Europe was Yiddish. Yiddish is in large part derived from an old form of German. When the Jews of eastern Europe were required by their local governments to take surnames during the early and middle 19th century, many of them were able to choose their own names. Often they used patronymics, nicknames, or other terms from their Yiddish language. The names of Russian Jews are often Yiddish in origin, but because Yiddish has much in common with German, the uninformed think they are German names.
Erich von Luddendorf was the chief of staff for General Paul von Hindenburg. He was responsible for the northern sector of the Eastern Front during 1914-1916. He was known for making very risky maneuvers in order to try and destroy the Russian Army. he also had a large dislike for General Falkenhayn who was in charge of all Germany's armed forces from 1914-1916, both on the Western front and on the Eastern front.
