# 3018 – Russian winter, 1941 (three figures, horse and sledge)
# 3589 – German Feldgendarm, 1941
I can say that I really like this horse-winter theme. On wartime photos we can see so many scenes with German soldiers and true Russian winter features. Especially in first Ostfront winter when Blitzkrieg was broken and Wehrmacht showed that army totally didn’t ready for real winter conditions.
German soldiers had to took old-fashioned peasant’s horses and sledges and wore traditional Russian furcoats and captured winter hats because frost and snow were almost ready to broke army’s ability to fight.
