Thanks, Ike. A tremendous series of photos. My question is, how come Carl doesn't already own them?

certainly a great site.

I like the picture of the aerobatics on the tank entertaining the men, these days that would never be allowed, it is always amazing how the world has changed in 60 odd years, how sub conscious we are of human life.
For want of a nail the shoe was lost, for the want of a shoe the horse was lost, for the want of a horse the rider was lost, for the want of a rider the battle was lost, For want of a battle the kingdom was lost, and all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

Robert,

Guess this is the Soviet version of a USO show. Glad y'all liked the site.

I find 2 photos interesting. The second photo of the tanks(??), they look like czech chassis that the Germans used for their pzkfw38. Parading captured vehicles perhaps? The fourth photo where they are harvesting grain, Look in the back and there is a German sign, Brandenburg.....hmmm.

Great Pictures! Especially of the dead Just lying there and no one really cared. What a Shame, shows the horrific seen and the reality of War! Hard Times Indeed.
