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 just don't drink their vodka thats Helga comment not Kozlov )

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.
