WW II thread

I'm reading Frederick Taylor's 'Exorcising Hitler', and found out that the Nazi Germany not only contributed to Greek's wartime famine which killed 300,000 people, but also didn't return the gold in the Bank of Greece
(Greek Deputy PM Theodoros Pangalos said the latter in Feb 2010, commenting on modern GER's lack of generosity)

p 154; In WWII, 60% of Soviet prisoners died by Feb 1942(At that time, 800,000 Germans died because of naval blockade-hunger)

In WWI, a mere 5.4 % died in German captivity.

Also, the Germans DELIBERATELY failed to advance into Leningrad; the reason? THEY DIDN'T WANT TO FEED THEM.

So, in the 1st 11 months of the siege, around 650,000 citizen is reported to have died.
