  • For the great majority of German soldiers life in WW2 (from June 1941 onwards) meant fighting on the Eastern Front. The casualty rate there was extremely high.
  • For ordinary civilians, everyday life involved increasing hardship, and from about April 1942 onwards the RAF in particular bombed the civilian population as a matter of policy.

I've said nothing about German Jews as their fate is sufficiently well known, but as we all know the fault is Hitler. Without him, Germany wouldn't have become tyrannous.
