  8. Polish people says:

    In Poland we had a lot of work to shot them all in 1920. Unfortunately in 1939 they were in cooperation with germans and it was to much for only one young country.

    Is it just me or are a couple of the photos(A rifleman, 1920-1921, A soldier of frontier troops, 1937-1941) reversed? It looks like the bolt handles on their rifles are on the left side. Or do left-handed Mosin Nagants actually exist?

  14. Gordon says:

    Is the Soviet Tanker uniform just the infantry uniform with coveralls over it? I can see the collar of another uniform and I can’t find anywhere that tells me what it is.
