Aerial Footage. Volgograd (Russia)

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Seen here in this excellent drone video by VadimUshka, the Russian city of Volgograd lies on a southern stretch of the Volga River.  During World War II, when the city was known as Stalingrad, it was the site of one of histrory's bloodiest battles.  The Battle of Stalingrad was joined in August, 1942 when the forces of Nazi Germany reached the outskirts of the city; it ended a little over five months later when these forces were encircled and annilhilated by the Red Army.  The battle marked the decisive turning point in the conflict.
