    German Funeral Respect.

      I agree.
      They gathered not only Germans, Romanians, Italians, but also Soviet soldiers.
      From whom documents were found, information about those can still be obtained from the archives of Germany.
      Yes, and a deadly iron medallion with an embossed personal file number is still more reliable than a scrap of paper filled with a pencil.

      When did they manage to dig so many graves? Although the murdered soldier, that personal grave, that fraternal in the funnel, but such an attitude towards the fallen is respected.

        So they did if there was time, if not, they simply dumped everyone in one funnel, if they retreated, they did not bury anyone at all. At your leisure, read an interview with former Wehrmacht soldiers, ordinary people. This is their standard answer.

      Pay attention, it is in the photo with the banner.
      and by the way, they gave him an assault rifle specifically for photography, since he has pouches for rifle cartridges on his belt.

      this is not in spite of the photo, it just caught my eye.

        Because for our infantrymen of the Second World War, the Mosin rifle (three-ruler) was much more reliable than the PPSh, again, the firing range, accuracy, and the same bayonet attached to it in extreme cases

        In appearance, a man over 50. From WWI to WWII, about 30 years old, could not get George at age 20?

      This is not George, according to the charter it is supposed to be worn on the left side of the chest. It is most likely some kind of allied cross.

        Natural George, only without a block, but they probably forgot about the charter of the tsarist army in the war. wink

          Even in the charter of the Crane Army, awards with pads should be worn on the left. Loss of pads on the status of the award does not affect. (And it is unlikely that a person who fought in the tsarist army and deserves George will forget which way to wear it).
          1. romul
            romul 3 July 2013 19: 35
            Yes, and the cross, if not mistaken, is enameled, but there weren’t any such Georgians. (Silver, gold).

              I think that here the issue is not the statutes of awards, simply a person could not wear the Tsarist Russia award on the left side, and they simply did not pay attention to its presence on the right.

              As far as I reviewed, it is not enameled.

                Definitely "George" without a shoe, by age - could well have been a member of WWI. By the way, K.I. Nedorubov wore St. George's crosses together with the Star of the Hero.

    for some reason, always when I look at such front-line photos, the next moment draws attention to myself is the cheerfulness and thirst for life on the faces of our fighters, there is war around, sometimes defeat, death, blood, but there is faith in Victory and a bright future. Truly, this is a state of mind and a way of thinking of a Russian person! Nobody can ever defeat us!
      SASCHAmIXEEW 3 July 2013 12: 52
      Very rightly noticed !!! Cheerfulness in spite of everything !!!! And since we beat all the "global enemies", it means MOTHERLAND-MOTHER in the first place !!! And all the dreams of the Zionist adversaries will not be destroyed without beginning !!!

    I looked at the photos with pleasure! The most pleasant and bright feeling left. I can imagine how these photos fed the hope of the Soviet people! The man looked at such photographs in the newspaper and the spirit cheered up, it means our army is not broken, it means stretched out, it means we will win.

    When I look at the photographs - at the smiling faces of our soldiers - it immediately becomes clear that you cannot defeat us because you cannot psychologically break us! A terrible war is going on, and people continue to smile. But looking at the photographs of German cemeteries, the words of the adolfik immediately come to mind: "I promised you land and glory - now you have both!"

    Few came back from the field ...

    German crosses and gallant Soviet soldiers ... "At the request of the workers."
    Photo 2: German soldiers bring agitation ... Yeah. According to reviews of Wehrmacht soldiers,, death is better than Siberia. Photo propaganda smells.

    The radio operator is asking for "porridge" not for a shoe, but for a canvas boot! Thanks for the selection! Glory to the veterans!
