For the Record: History of Great Victory: T-34 Commander
Hello everyone, Wargaming RU released another WW2-themed video from the “History of Great Victory” series. This time, it’s the memories of Dmitry Mikhailovich Malyshev, a wartime commander of a T-34/85 tank. Do watch it, the memories of veterans are always interesting and actually, we should record as much as we can, as these men and women won’t be around for much longer. English subtitles are available. The video is of distinctive “Russian” style, but still, worth watching. * * In the video, Dmitry Malyshev explains how they trained, recieved their T-34/85 tanks, liberated Brest and captured a German Waffen SS general. He continued to Hungary, where he describes an event how he and other Soviet troops knocked out a Panther and a Tiger. He was wounded in October 1944 and remained in Moscow for the rest of the war. Do expect many more of these videos this year, as the 80th anniversary of the end of the war approaches. One thing is absolutely sure though – no matter what you think of Russians these days, these men were simple soldiers and real heroes. It takes guts to go and fight for your country.
