Enemy retreats from Moscow, re-enactors party like it's 1942

reenactingOkay, this is kind of great.

On February 23, Defenders of the Fatherland Day (née Red Army Day), 22 employees from the Vadim Zadorozhny Technical Museum and activists from the Motherland’s History Milestones reenacted the momentous occasion when, in February 1942, the Red Army pushed the German Wehrmacht back 250 km from the capitol. Ten of them played the Wehrmacht, 12 played the Russians.

And the resultant video is amazing. Watch it here.

One Response to Enemy retreats from Moscow, re-enactors party like it's 1942

    It looks like the Soviets are using a jeep. Don’t think American Lend-Lease vehicles would have reached the front in December 1941. Also looks like that little tracked vehicle is – I think – a British Bren carrier. I’m surprised Soviet reenactors would use foreign equipment instead of made-in-Russia.
