The Average Ivan

I bought this book at Borders (RIP) @ Wheelock Place.

It is a revealing account of the average Ivans who fought in the Eastern Front 1941-1945. I was astounded with the ruthlessness of the Soviet military as they desperately tried to stem the German invasion.

As they won in Stalingrad, it was still an uphill struggle for the Ivans as they fought the grueling battles against the Germans.

A revealing read as I build up my motivation to paint my strelkovy!
