Photos of Soviet Soldiers

Hold on to your hats.  Shannon found a fanTAStic webpage FULL of photos of Soviet soldiers, red cross nurses, tanks, mortars, etc.  It is like a Paullina Simons novel come to life.  Except for the fact that everyone seems to be smiling...so they must be propaganda shots.  They're even in color, which the webmaster explains was very expensive at that time.  Take a look.

  1. Ha! Did you see the one where they are pointing to America on the globe? 'Look, Shura, this is where Tatiana has bought you acres and acres of land. If only we would let you leave, perhaps you could go there some day.'
