Russia played a major role in defeating the Nazis during WWII. The Battle of Moscow, the Siege of Leningrad, the Battle of Stalingrad (now Volgograd)— the echoes of all the grand battles spread across Russia. Travel to Volgograd to visit the places where Hitler was first stopped and then defeated. But at a heavy cost; over thirty million lives were lost. Now, seventy years later, we can follow the famous paths, and imagine what was it like when the hell of the largest's battle in history was unleashed.
