Pronin's web site. He has terrific
artistic photography of Russia and other places. Anatoly recently supplied a
striking photo of the Kopor'ye fortress you can now find in the section on that
place. We have recently added more photos not only to Kopor'ye but also
Ivangorod, Pechora monastery, Izborsk and Pskov fortresses. There is now a new
section with photography of the Russian Central Army Museum in Moscow. See the
index for links. We added a fascinating collection of Old Believer Brass
Icons. We also now have the full text of
the U.S. Army's manual on the Red Army of WWII - Handbook on U.S. S. R Military

Tsekhgaus - Arsenal the
excellent Russian military history magazine - click above to have a look at the
cover and table of contents of issues 11,12,13,14,15,16. We have been buying
and distributing this super publication since the first issue in 1991 but
generally in insufficient copies to make translation worth while. Mark Conrad

email us at Xenophon for details.
