This amazing render by my good friend
show Olga paying her respects at The Mamayev Monument
, a statue in Mamayev Kurgen in Volograd, Russia, commemorating the Battle of Stalingrad. Designed by sculptor Yevgeny Vuchetich, it is the largest statue in the world. The Battle of Stalingrad was the turning point in World War II, or as the Russians call it the Great Patriotic War, in which the Soviets crushed the German 6th Army and forced a massive withdrawal and decline from the Eastern Front. According to archival figures, the Red Army suffered a total of 1,129,619 total casualties
in this campaign with 478,741 men killed or missing and 650,878 wounded. For civilians in the city itself 750,000 were killed, captured, or wounded. It is unknown how many Russians were killed in the regions outside the city. On this day of remembrance it is important to not only recognize the honorable service of your own military servicemen and women, but also those who gave their lives in other nations as well.
To those veterans around the world, I salute you and thank you for your service.
