Red Army Psychological Warfare

The following steps were taken to encourage troops of the Ninth Army to capitulate:

* 1st Ukrainian Front dropped some 4 million propaganda flyers.
* Hundreds of loudspeakers positioned just behind the front line blared out invitations to surrender.
* Turncoat prisoners of war working for the Red Army against their former comrades were often sent back to the German lines incite and agitate.
* Specially trained civilians from the battle zone, men and women, were sent to infilrate German positions (a total of 861 prisoners were sent to the German side. Some 477 of these went back to the Russians taking with them 8,816 defectors).
* So-called Seydlitz units (supposedly operating on behalf of the National Committee for a Free Germany) were present, wearing Wehrmacht uniforms.
