    the arctic convoy runs must have been truly horrific, especially with the constant non-stop ice build-ups, horrifically cold weather & limited to non-existant daylight.

    Probably 95+% of everything on those ships had "Made in U.S.A" written on it…. But it was only the English and canadians who helped save Russia.🤔

    Let me get this straight. We supported the Soviet Union (I guess cause Hitler was actively seeking to rule the world) so the Soviets gobbled up almost all of Eastern Europe for have half of a century…maybe that is why BHO thought he should help ISIS so they could take over Iraq, Syria and everything else they could get their hands on.

  21. T. 'Wild' Weasel says:

    Running the gauntlet in these hostile conditions.. much respect!!

  22. xXE4GLEyEXx says:

    I always wonder how the man of today would hold in situations such as this… for me all the people who took part in WW1 and WW2 no matter the side are heroes…. I myself would have never been able to accomplish any of the hard work and though situations that these man went trough… I worked on a ship on the Danube repairing and upkeeping buoys… was not easy or safe but it was far far from anything like any of this

    We supplied the Soviets with $11 billion worth of lend-lease goods during WWII, only for them to become our most feared and hated rival on the world scene right afterwards…

    This Video touched my deeply. The heroic struggle of these Sailors and Seamen made me realise again the price we have to pay for our Lives, collectively speaking.

  28. really sick of all this pro-russian fake ass propaganda

  29. keith pierce says:

    applause. well done on the video series

  30. ham descendants of ham says:

    did I just saw a Jamaican flag?

  31. William Cox says:

    A very well done segment, with interviews shared between the men of the countries involved. We were allies in those days . . . let's hope it happens again, despite all the bellicose rhetoric we hear of late (on both sides).

    Thanks for posting, Wargaming.
