As an American and the son of a Vietnam Veteran I'm fascinated with the military history of the former Soviet Union.

Recently, I came across some photos of the Soviet military while working on a project about the Vietnam War.

These images of from WWII and also of a military school in Leningrad (St. Petersburg, Russia) apparently training soldiers during the Vietnam War.
  • Soviet Russian soldiers light a cigarette while patrolling Berlin after its fall at the end of World War II. One soldier is carrying a Soviet 7.62mm PPSH submachine gun. This image is from the archive of a photojournalist who photographed WWII for the Red Army.
