Gotta Love Military Vehicles
« on: May 27, 2008, 03:31:10 AM »
Some pictures of Soviet armour. Taken in my study-abroad semester in The Ukraine in May 2006.
During my stay in the former Soviet Socialist Republic, I took it on myself to tour the former Soviet monuments as well as military centers.

Military history and history in general is a personal hobby, the off time I had in the country allowed me to completely engross myself in local history, discourse and nationalism.

The best part in my experience in Eastern Europe would have to be the people and their vibrant history. Truly there is a difference between reading history in books and discussions in class from actually being there, living and breathing as well as seeing history before your eyes.
