Soviet soldiers as seen by German artist

German artist has seen Soviet soldiers in 1920s-1940s and made his artistic work depicting them. A nice view on the Red Army from the other side. Let’s see a few of his works. The one on top is a junior lieutenant of air force in 1943. Before 1940s the Soviet Army officers didn’t have shoulder straps and used only sleeve stripes as you would see on the next pics.
