WW2: Moscow

Troops march through Red Square to mark the Revolution, November 7, 1941.  These soldiers marched straight out to the front line against the Germans.  It was a grim anniversary.  No crowds, no celebrations, just Stalin and a few cronies to watch.  The future of the Soviet Union came down to the performance of these soldiers in the city's outer suburbs over the next few weeks.
