The White Army - the informal name of the military-political groups who fought in the Civil War against the Soviets. Emerged after the abdication of Emperor Nicholas II in 1917. Origin of the term associated with the traditional symbols of the white color as the supporters of the “lawful order. Basis White Guard - the officers of the tsarist army; leadership - military tops (M.V. Alekseev, P.N. Wrangel, A. I. Denikin, A. V. Kolchak, L.G. Kornilov, Y. K. Miller, N.N. Yudenitch).

drittenreichkunst:

Konstantin Vasilyev “Stalingrad”
This is not a painting of a Third Reich artist, but a painting of an artist who was born on Third Reich soil. The work of Russian artist Konstantin Vasilyev certainly is unique; it is all steeped in Germanic and Slavic pagan symbolism and an overt sympathy for the Third Reich. It is hardly imaginable that Vasilyev created his works, living in the Soviet Union. In this rare painting we see a German soldier who died heroically in the fierce battle of Stalingrad. He is covered in the snow of the grim Russian winter of 1943. An eagle with spread wings is flying above him – a symbol of a free German Reich.
