CAVEAT: This is not a wartime picture. It is instead a modern re-enactment of the Battle of Stalingrad by Italy's Progetto 900. Its legend—visible above—is typically removed from the bottom of the image so that it can be incorrectly captioned "German soldier running through mud in city fighting", or the like. It was taken in March 2011. If photos look too good, close, sharp, or well-composed to be true, they usually aren't.
