Airport at Stalingrad

Gemini Man 1942

by Mr Jones

This exciting find (Gemini pendent?), was pulled out of a German bunker at Stalingrad (along with other military relics). The ill-fated 6th army, perished in the fateful seige of the city. Around 800,000 Axis soldiers were killed, wounded or went missing. The site of a fruitful iron harvest (military finds), was at Gumrak (pocket) airfied. Now it's Volgograd International Airport. German command, only successfully flew out 25,000 troops. A further 100,000 were captured, with only 6,000 Stalingrad soldiers, making it back home to Germany. There would have been utter chaos at these airfields, as a mass scramble onto the very few planes (like lifeboats on the Titanic); leaving the bloodiest battle, in human history and by 1943 Germany had already lost the War.

To acheive the photo I just placed the pendant on a book photo and then applied a grunge paper to age it.
