"During the battle of Stalingrad,... to increase the pressure on their opponents, the Soviet commanders ordered continual raids to be carried out by night. They did this partly because the Germans lacked protection from their air force at night, but mainly to induce exhaustion among the enemy. To augment the night raids, the Soviets fired flares indicating that an attack was imminent even when it was not. Their air force also attacked German positions every night. The Soviets kept up the psychological pressure throughout the night, with loudspeakers blaring out propaganda broadcasts, surreal tango music, or the sound of a ticking clock."

- Paul Martin, ‘Counting Sheep’, (2003)
