You can add that the Russians asked for the flow of German supplies, such as they were, to be cut off, getting supplies though a city with its building laying in the streets is impossible. "Reap the whirlwind" comes to mind.

Good post to review Sir.
Technology really took over now a days, the Air Force is the only branch I know that would drop a 1000# bomb to kill one guy.
I did hear from Vietnam veterans that the Air Force did, and had, drop a whole load of bombs from a B-52, and wiped out a whole herd of water buffalo's. Lol
The technology then was called, Heat Signature Identification Instruments.

Yes, we did make quite a few swimming pools for monkeys with our B-52 strikes.
