http://www.95thrifles.org/ - Information from a re-enactment group. Plus a catchy song to listen to :)

http://www.hymn.ru/index-en.html - Every russian national anthem ever written in handy mp3 format (including a 1943 english version)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:S ... _divisions - List of Divisions that fought in WWII.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snipers_of ... viet_Union - Snipers of the Soviet Union.

http://www.battlefield.ru/index.php?opt ... 08&lang=en - If you thought Enemy At The Gates was a reasonably historically accurate film read this site of a Russians take on the film. Enlightening.

Thats all I can think of for now. Feel free to add any more

From a post listing links on wwii reenacting by Kozlov.

Units

http://2ndguards.com - 2nd Guards (UK) (note I've met and drank with this lot, they are more than willing to help airsofters with questions about kit, well they helped me :oops: just don't drink their vodka :lol: thats Helga comment not Kozlov :lol: )

http://13guards.bravehost.com - 13th Guards (UK)

http://www.reenactor.se - 63rd Guards (Sweden)

Dealers

US based...
http://www.ostfront.com
http://www.tridentmilitary.com
http://www.collectrussia.com (pricey but it's all what he says it is)

Eastern Europe..
http://www.aboutww2militaria.com
http://www.russianarsenal.com (uniforms are mostly repro and some items are a bit dodgy)
http://militaria-centre.com/ St Petersburg based

Research

http://www.battlefield.ru - The Russian Battlefield. If you interest is tanks then this is the place to go. The 'I Remember' section has lots of veteran memoirs too.

http://www.iremember.ru - The Russian original for the section mentioned above. Has more biographies but you'll have to put them through a translator first - unless your Russian is better than mine!

http://www.redarmystudies.net - What it says on the tin. Lots of useful articles and links on the Red Army at war many from the Voenny Istoricheskii Zhurnal - all translated of course.

http://rkka.ru - all in Russian but a good site on the Red Army

http://www.mannerheim-line.com - a site maintained by our comrade from North Front, Bair Irincheev, on the Finnish Defences of the Winter War.

http://www-cgsc.army.mil/carl/resources/csi/csi.asp - lots of online books not just about the Red Army

http://rkkaww2.armchairgeneral.com/

The site owner seems to be a patriot so some of his opinion pieces are...interesting, but the data & pictures are good.

In my opinion the clip contains all the best parts of the series. the rest is not quite up to standard.

Lyube has a lot of great patriotic songs.
