Russian WW2 color pics

I found this online while on break at work today. I figured a few of you might enjoy some of the milsurps in the pictures as I did. I chuckled when I saw the women with mousers. Waste not, want not.

Wow. Incredible.

Most of them are, of course, posed publicity shots, but they're still incredible.

Much of America's combat motion picture footage from WW II was actually taken in color, but reproduced in black and white for distribution at movie theaters around the nation.

Ooops. Mausers. Especially embarrassing as I have two of them. In my defense I think they would do quite well on mouses though.

Bill Maudlin in his book "UP FRONT" had a cartoon with a soldier saying, "You Irishmen would have lost this war without allies like Texas and Russia" (pg. 76)

So maybe he was pointing to his allies!
