    I've searched the forum, and nobody seems to have highlighted this site. It's well worth a visit - it's huge (lots of maps):

    Excellent site, pages from it have definitely been referred to here a few times. Alex/Amvas, it's thorough and argumentative creator can be a very interesting and 'full on' chap.

    Cheers VP - the forum's search facility can be, err, idiosyncratic, and I couldn't be bothered to check all the posts to see if it's been mentioned before.

    Look, I know I said I wanted to learn more about the Eastern Front for 2007 but that site will take me all year to get through.

    Thanks for the link.

    Have you seen the illustrations in the Uniform section........bloody fantastic.
    Uniform page 1 then click on the actual picture.
    for example take a decco at this one.

    and this one would be good in the Red Army Women thread.

    Good site - thanks for flagging it up.

    Just been going through the map section - and it is excellent. One of the best I have come across for the Eastern Front.

    Thought I'd make this sticky as there is so much helpful info here.
    Any one disagree?

    It means when you click on Russia's War section this subject thread will always be at the top.

    I have a couple of books from the same author from whom these scans were taken and they are really very good.
    What are the books and who is the author & the illustrator(s)?

    Thank you, gentlemen for the interest to my "RKKA in WWII" site.
    I really try to take care about it for a long time period...
    Unfortunately less than 1% of my materials are processed and I have almost no hope to finish this process...:sorry:

    But I'm still trying my best...:358:
    This month can't promise much updates, as I'm very busy with my students, but in January I hope to have time for large update...

    regards,
    Alex

    Hi, Owen...
    If you noticed, I always give links to my sources at the bottom of each page.
    So, you can see I employed the next books:

    I. Moshchanskiy, E. Kharitonova, "Na Dalnykh podstupakh k Moskve. Vyazemsko-Brianskaya strategicheskaya oboronitelnaya operatsiya 30 sentiabria-30 oktiabria 1941 goda. Sukhoputnye Sily RKKA", Voyennaya Letopis"/Military Chronicle, "Armii mira" No. 4, Moscow, 2003

    I. Moschankiy, I. Khokhlov, "Boi u ozera Khasan 29 Iyulia - 11 Avgusta 1938 goda", Voyennaya Letopis/Military Chronicle "Armii Mira" No. 2, Moscow, 2002.

    I. Moshchanskiy, "Oborona Pribaltiki 22 Iyunia - 9 Iyulia 1941 goda", Voyennaya Letopis/Military Chronicle, Armii Mira No. 1, Moscow, 2002

    M. Kolomiets. "Boi u reki Khalkhin-Gol", Frontovaya Illyustratsia, No 2/2002

    P. Lipatov, "Uniforma Krasnoi Armii", Tekhnika-Molodezhi, 2001

    I think you can buy some of those on
    www.aviapress.com Their prices are quite reasonable

    Uniform is not my main subject, though...

    Oh yes so you did.
    Sorry for not seeing the reference. I've just bought new glasses too.
    Thanks for pointing that out.

    Btw, Recently I bought one interesting book with many colored pictures in it (not for myself, but for my pal from Slovakia). Probably I can scan and upload some new uniform pictures from it

    I think one of the problems we have in understanding the Russian view of WW2 is the cyrillic alphabet, I can read a bit of French & German but as for Russian, no chance!
    Does look good though.
