Hi all;
I ordered this set of books from the Russian embassy after the end of the Cold War and was wondering if any of my Russian friends out there had ever heard of them. Each year of the GPW is covered by a hardcover book and the shots are astounding to say the least. Here is a link with some of them; http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.vor.ru/55/Photo_Exhibition/9-7.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.vor.ru/55/Photo_Exhibition/Pic_eng.html&usg=__RBROnUU2-liI6xodsdNQwNJjiHk=&h=278&w=400&sz=33&hl=en&start=18&tbnid=I0vkMZVwtgblDM:&tbnh=86&tbnw=124&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dthe%2Bgreat%2Bpatriotic%2Bwar%2Bin%2B photographs%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN

I also took some liberties with some of these fantastic shots-under the assumption that they were in the public domain- but if this is not the case and anybody has any objections I will certainly remove them; http://news.webshots.com/album/561982405kxMprl?vhost=news
