A Tour in The Central Armed Forces Museum in Moscow

If you can’t make it to Moscow to visit The Central Armed Forces Museum (Russian: Центральный Музей Вооруженных сил) also known as the Museum of the Soviet Army near the Red Army Theater to view some of its most interesting WWII material, here is a little sneak tour in the images below.

The most prized display is that dedicated to the Great Patriotic War, which includes the Victory Banner as well as all of the front banners and the captured German ones that were used during the Victory Parade in 1945.

The Great Patriotic War differs from World War II in that it began on 22 July 1941 with the German invasion of the Soviet Union. World War II (in Europe), started on 1 September 1939 with the co-ordinated attacks of Germany and the Soviet Union on Poland.
