That Helmet Isn’t the Only War Artifact Embedded in This Russian Forest. The Neva Bridgehead Is a Must See.

When German troops occupied Saint Petersburg during World War II, Russian troops mounted an offensive at the Neva River – and this forest is what’s left.

Even today, so many veterans around the world need help – the comfort of home, the love of a friend. You can share hope, faith, and love through the comfort of a care package! Be an angel this Christmas!

Outside Saint Petersburg, Russia, is a relatively small field still to this day littered with unidentified skeletons. It’s kind of creepy when you think about it, but it is also beautiful in a way: see, in World War II, German troops had laid siege to Saint Petersburg and cut off all communication with the outside world. The Russian army fought long and hard to reestablish communication, specifically at a crossing at the Neva River. Hundreds of thousands of casualties mounted on both sides for months on end.
