    M-au intristat aceste imagini din al 2-lea razboi mondial.Ma gindesc, ca acum, se pot evita asemenea anomalii datorita saltului tehnologic care trebuie sa aibe loc in toate domeniile.

    Unfortunately the picture of the “Kursk Arch” is not Russian soldiers under German tanks…especially considering the road wheels are that of either a BT-5 or a T34

    How sad. Now I know what my father went through, being in the direct path of the Kursk battle, Germans took him back to Germany, never to see his family again.
