Great pics and narration. I had no idea of the incredible sacrifices made by the Russian people in WWII until I took a course on Russian history in college (and that was during the cold war). The stories of the Russian female snipers were phenomenal too. I'm glad Russia remembers the heroes that repulsed the nazis with all those memorials,
My son is in the currently in the US Navy studying the Russian language at the defense language institute. He speaks many languages but Russian appeals to him the most.
