Instead of just posting random pictures in Mir I thought it might be of some interest to post those images of Red Army soldiers which I occasionally find into a thread of their own.


Image

WWII Soviet Sniper Julia Petrovna. Killed 80 Germans.


Image

WWII Soviet Sniper Liudmila Pavlichenko (over 300 confirmed kills, 36 of those - snipers)


Image

Vova Egorov, 15 Year Old Scout for the Red Army. WWII, April 1942.


Image

Red Army soldiers wait in a trench as a Russian T-34 tank passes over them in 1943, during the Battle of Kursk.


Image

Feel free to add any good ones of your own discovery. Try to mention any information about who it is or when it was taken (if possible).

I apologize if the caption translations are inaccurate. The originals (and much more) can be found here. I have selected mainly 'human interest' photos but there were plenty of more military hardware type photos for the interested.
