Ive been to the Moscow and visited the "Great Patriotic War Museum".

If there was one thing that museum conveyed was the vast carnage of war that was inflicted on Russia and the immense casualties they suffered.

There was one section of the museum that i call "the room of the dead". It had at least two dozen "huge" books on display that listed every single one of their war dead. I couldnt read cyrillic, but some names had a few sentences, some had a paragraph or more.

I just had to shake my head in the wonderment of it all.
 
Good, good, pics 8)

The Russians suffered outrageously in the war, before the war, and after it. The amount of people that died in Stalin's time (1924-53) was something like 50 million excluding the people that actually died in the war.... He directly, or indirectly ended up as the worst killer in History, worse even than Hitler...
