Russia played a major role in defeating the Nazis during WWII. You won’t find a family in Russia that wasn’t affected by humanity's greatest war. The Battle of Moscow, the Siege of Leningrad, the Battle of Stalingrad—the bloodiest in history—-...the echoes of all the grand battles are here, in Russia, 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 how it felt here when hell was unleashed on ordinary people. Feel the history of the greatest battle ever, pay your tribute to the fallen.
