You are about to see the event with the eyes of one participant who was on the battlefield and in the trenches. See the previous reports: 1, 2.

The Soviet tanks are approaching the left bank of the Dnieper river. They were careful and the Germans didn’t notice anything. The Nazi spy planes detected Soviet tanks and large weapons on the previous places, but they were made from logs.

    • Sore loser?

      In America people reenact the civil war all the time. Southerners dress in grey and northerners in blue, and they go reenact some battle and then head off to the bar and have beer with each-other afterward.

    • in your dreams. Germany built six submarines for Israel at cost price. The Nazis exist to make Stalin look like a “good guy”. WW2 was the carte blanche excuse for a lot of the Allies to be scum. How many countries has the USA,UK and USSR invaded since ’45? A lot more than Germany in WW2.

  1. As a ProudAmerican I was involved in historical re-enactments here in the states and I loved it. Now I dress up on Veterans Day and give a living history demonstration.

  2. I am not trying to be a smart ass but putting those gas cans in the front of the car seems like a dumb idea. A well placed shot from a sniper rifle will turn that vehicle into blaze
