When German forces crossed the Russian border in 1941, Hitler expected a short and decisive campaign. It almost succeeded, but the heroic defense of the huge Soviet armies stopped the Nazi advance. It was the simple Russian soldier, called “Ivan” by the Germans, who made it. Brave, steadfast and loyal, these soldiers withstood terrible battle conditions. Their equipment was simple but functional, as were they themselves.
The bloody fighting in Finland taught the Red Army hard lessons, with thousands of its men suffering from frostbite. Cold-weather gear issued later was warm and comfortable, often padded or lined, and was envied by shivering German troops in their thin overcoats.
These hardy men could lie in the snow for hours before launching their attacks. Urrah!
