    Soviet Women Soldiers of WW2: Snipers, Night Witches and Women's History

    You know there is no forum here dedicated to female related history. I find it kind of surprising as almost every professor I had in the past years really tried to dab the historic content towards female related history. There's a lot of stuff out there that people generally have never heard of...

    WW2: how many Soviet soldiers died in 1943 in the battle of Kiev Kyiv?

    This might be one of the bloodiest pages of the WW2. Apparently, no one had an accurate account of what was happening during the 1943 battle of Kyiv. There are publications showing that during 1-2 days of November 1943, approximately 1 million Soviet soldiers drowned in the River Dnieper...

    Why are the Italians so underrated?

    Almost every culture has had an empire and a high point. The Italians had it in the ancient Roman Empire. Even without being unified for another 1200 years, the Italians were still formidable and were absolutely untouchable because of the Pope. So why does 1 war where they got invaded by the...

    Did the USSR use Bazookas in WW2?

    I like to play an RTS called Company of Heroes 2. In it, the Soviets do not carry anything like bazookas, being restricted to PTRS AT rifles to bring down light tanks and vehicles. I don't think this game is realistic, but it made me wonder if the Soviets used any anti-tank weapons like bazookas...
