26 The Reconstruction of One Bloody Battle of 1942

The Reconstruction of One Bloody Battle of 1942

Posted on August 17, 2011 by team

German soldiers throw grenades at the fortifications of the Red Army.


Only several dozens of meters remain!

But the “Maxim” bangs away with no break.

And only when German soldiers have already captured all the fortifications, “wise” commanders and political instructors give a reserve group with an armored car an order to leave the birch grove and strike the Germans from the rear.

The Red Army men who witnessed the battle know that the order was given too late.

Still orders are orders and must never be discussed…


The Red Army men pursue the Germans.

Grenades are in the air again but this time it’s the Red Army which storms the fortifications of its own comrades.

And the Wermakht is now forced to defend the hospital of the RKKA.

German soldiers completely gone crazy after such a turn fire back using pistols.

Even though it’s obvious the Red Army has the numeral superiority.

An awful mess in the Soviet rear.


The end is so close… Hold on!

The result of any war is well known to everybody…

    I’m really curious what they actually fire and blow up? Blanks and light explosives for show? It all looks awfully cool, but I can’t really imagine it working the same as airsoft for example…

  2. testicules says:

    Are those authentic tanks or are they replicas? Germans had really cool uniforms and equipment

  3. John says:

    Whether 1942 or 2011, still better to be on the German side!

    I want the track bike!

    What is this reconstruction for?

  6. Otis R. Needleman says:

    Interesting reconstruction. A good deal of effort went into this. Happily, after this was over everyone got up, shook hands, and had a party. In real war…not.

    Comrade politruk, I understand your forehead is falling on the front page of “Collected Writings Of Comrade Stalin, The Greatest Leader, The Wisest Man, The Best Skier And Tractor Driver Of All Times” after 200 grms of vodka, but it is 2011, not 1942. Did the comrades from NKVD mention something like “liquid nitrogen” after the toast?

  8. Chac Mool says:

    Yes, the german outfits and gear still look cool today. I can’t imagine how hard was for the Russians to reach Berlin. This was a very well done and cool reenactment. Great set of pics for WWII fans.

    Years ago I owned a board game “Russian Civil War 1918-1922”; always had to play solitary (no one else had any interest)… always made sure the Reds won. My only knowledge/interest in “reenactments.”

  10. Yves St. Cyr says:

    I don’t think I would have enjoyed fighting in this war the combatants on either side were entirely too vicious.

  11. Montesquieu says:

    Luftwaffe had some of the worst ground combat troops in the war. Paratroops excluded. While well equiped, they were ill trained and lacked motivation. Least of all the lack of logic behind ground troops serving the air force.
