How many made it back :unsure:

 

Roughly half. And a fair number were still prisoners into at least the 1950s.

 

Soviet losses were appalling. Over 800,000 kia. Over 3 million wounded. And over 3 million captured. And over 21,000 aircraft and 20,000 tanks destroyed. Soviets taken prisoner by the Nazis had something like an 80% mortality rate.
