A grand parade was held in Volgograd: hundreds of servicemen, dozens of vehicles, and for the first time aviation, all in honor of the 75th anniversary of the landmark victory in one of the most important and decisive battles of the entire Great Patriotic War - the Battle of Stalingrad.

A great victory for the Soviet people and a crushing defeat for Germany. The lesson of history is to honor pacts made and do not invade other countries!

No, I was referring to WWII Germany. After all that is a big part of what the thread is about.

Although I see you never miss an opportunity to attempt to smear the USA!  :coffeeread:

Very few of those who fought during this time are still with us. We should remember what they achieved and those of there comrades who died.

As for commitments and pacts the United States only became involved in the 2nd World War less than a year before the battle of 'Stalingrad' began. Further the United States honoured its pacts and upon the conclusion of the 2WW did not enslave and subjugate large areas of Central and Eastern Europe.

Thank you, Annushka

For those who haven't been, the museum dedicated to the siege and Mamayev Kurgan - memorial and tomb of the unknown soldier are well worth visiting
