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.
