Moscow Victory Celebration - 1945

I didn't really have anything to say today, or the time to think of anything. I've been reading about the Second World War recently (also, Montefiore's Court of the Red Tsar) and for the heck of it, I look for films of the various actors. While looking for footage of Marshall Zhukov, I saw this victory celebration snippet, and I was touched by the emotion on the faces of some of those soldiers. If ever a country had had a hard-won victory, it was the monstrous Soviet Union in 1945.
