As the general's second-in-command said just before the big battle scene in Gladiator, "A people should know when they are beaten."

A Roman army would have raped the men too, just to drive that point home.

The Germans got off lucky that it was Russians and Siberians, not ancient Romans or Greeks.

The Soviets would've brutalized whoever the conquered rather they fought back or not. Submission would not equal satiation.
