Dept. Of Historical Understatement:


From Robert Messenger's essay on the eastern front: 

The Germans also made little attempt to win the hearts and minds of the Russians, diverting all resources in the captured territories back to Germany, executing hundreds of thousands, and leaving the rest to starve.

 No, not a very strong attempt at all.
