Small offering

WW2 Russian Army Commissar and bodyguard
15 mm




Commissars were political officers responsible for maintaining loyalty in Russian Army units. Their methods ranged from shouting motivational slogans in battle to purging "counter-revolutionary" officers and machine-gunning troops who retreated against orders. Not one inch of Russia to the Fascists!

  2. I'm pretty sure British accents were considered counter-revolutionary. Workers, exercise eternal vigilance against bourgeois backsliders!

  3. Please, the British accents came over to Russia with the land lease program along with tanks and planes.
