1630 x 840 mm
The enemy is suffering loss after loss. However, he is not yet defeated. Hitler’s bandits, seeing their approaching death and the inevitability of revenge for the monstrous deeds they have committed on our land, are resisting with the fury of doomed men. They are throwing their last forces and their last reserves into battle, clutching onto every last meter of Soviet land and every single advantageous position.
(From the order of the Supreme Head Commander, comrade J. V. Stalin, February 23, 1944)
