Cossack history, Russian Civil War, World War II.

This name is familiar not only to historians, but in general everything. Movies, books on the history and even the name of the square in Paris have the name Stalingrad.
Bloody battles, destruction of the city led to the fact that from Stalingrad almost nothing left. Only a few houses survived. One of them is named Pavlov. There is also a large memorial “Motherland” images even in Soviet rubles. There is also a historical museum.
Our club provides an opportunity to see more. These space battles. To do this, our friends – members of military history clubs show real space battles. Until now, the battle fields are remnants of equipment and other artifacts of the time.

Some days per year Volgograd still named Stalingrad (during the celebration of the Battle for Stalingrad)

In 1919, the Russian White Army led by General Wrangel, with allies advanced on Tsaritsyn against the Bolsheviks. Tsaritsyn also called “Red Verdun”. In the attack on Tsaritsyn involved British tanks MK V ‘Rombus” with Russian and British crews. British tank crew for the capture of Tsaritsyn got a lot of Russian awards.
