► Photothread: German vehicles and "Rasputitsa"

Postby sir dude » 01 May 2010 02:43

Rasputitsa, the Russian term for the biannual seasons, when rain turned dirt roads into mud quagmires. A nightmare for the German Army, which made any movement almost impossible for that month. A term the Wehrmacht in Russia learnt to dread.
-Three examples from e-bay.
