A Woman In Berlin, 3

Here the author is writing about the Soviet soldiers in Berlin. 
For the most part they have no ability to assess the value of things. They snatch the first thing they see and have no concept of quality or price -- why should they? They've always just worn what they've been allotted; they don't know how to judge and choose, how to figure out what's good, what's expensive.
