    That is truly a remarkable achievement.

    I would love to see the entire war done in that fashion. What a great teaching tool.

      Translation:

      Winners – the soldiers of Great War

      In the year of 60th anniversary of the Great Victory we want to thank by name the soldiers of the Great War who lives now and to tell about their feat.

      Now we are able to say “Thank you” to more than a million veterans living now. Our list contains 1,009,573 real names.

        I agree completely. Even without understanding Russian the pictures and maps are incredible.

                Hey Boonie, you might want to put a link to this site in the Maps and Topography section in the reference area. A lot more folks might see and appreciate it there. Just a thought.
