Aleksandr Sokolov (Russian conscript)
was a watchmaker's apprentice on the outskirts of Stalingrad before the German
invasion. As the enemy began to overrun the city, Aleksandr was rounded up with
all other able-bodied men on his block and pressed into service in the 13th
Guards Rifle Division. Commissars, shouting through bullhorns, herded the throng
of raw recruits into makeshift uniforms (some still with bullet holes from their
previous owners) and onto trains bound for the river docks.
Pavelovna (Russian sniper)
Tanya knew little of the war in
Europe, even after the Germans invaded the Soviet Union in 1941. Her home
village of Pitomnik was small and isolated, cut off from the everyday realities
of what would become known to all Russians as The Great Patriotic War.
year later that all changed. In the middle of the night, German tanks rolled
into Pitomnik, securing the village so it could be used to supply the assault on
Stalingrad. Tanya was separated from her parents as tank shells scattered the
villagers and she was forced to flee into the woods beyond the village. Her
parents were never seen again.
While escaping a German patrol, Tanya

Union, leaving his wife and newborn son, Josef, in the care of his
His background as a mechanic in a Leningrad tractor factory made
him an ideal choice for tank duty and he was assigned to the 24th Tank Corps. He
soon showed an aptitude for disrupting enemy assaults and was given command of
his own tank. When the Germans began their assault on Stalingrad, he was one of
the first to volunteer to fight.
Despite living in a constant state of
near-exhaustion, Nikolai always has a wide smile for his fellow Russian soldiers
and an unwavering stare for the German invaders. He has an enduring belief in
the strength and superiority of the Soviet Union, and lives to see the day
Russian tanks crush Berlin under their tracks.

Charles Walker (American
Charles S. Walker hails from Cleveland, Ohio, where he
made a living as a building contractor and school bus driver. Over the strong
objections of his sister, Sally, Walker joined the army right after Pearl Harbor
and shipped out to England.
Walker has fought with the 26th Infantry
(attached to First Army, the Big Red One) through most of the war, including
landings in North Africa and Sicily, the invasion of Normandy on D-Day, and the
pursuit of Axis forces across France and Belgium.
As a grunt on the front
lines, Walker knows he's not fighting for some greater purpose. He's fighting to
save his own life and the lives of the soldiers around him. That means he's got
to kill the Germans before they kill him. It's a simple as that. Fighting with
the Big Red One has taught him that you win a war by surviving
Sam Rivers (American tank)
Sam rushed to
enlist in the army at age 18, after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Almost everyone
he knew from his neighborhood in Chicago joined him, including his best friend,
James Wilson. He married his high-school sweetheart, Margaret, barely three
hours before catching the train to basic training.
During training, Sam
was assigned to the 761st Tank Battalion, one of three battalions consisting
almost exclusively of African-American soldiers. The training was hard, and the
761st had few supporters, but Sam and his fellow tankers proved themselves again
and again during maneuvers. General George Patton himself watched the 761st in
action and demanded they be sent to Europe and attached to his
Sam and the 761st arrived in the ETO in the fall of 1944. They
were assigned as a floating battalion to Patton's Third Army, going where it was
needed, and soon distinguished itself as a capable and hard-hitting
As young as he is, Sam realizes the importance of his presence in
the war with the 761st Tank Battalion. He knows he's fighting for something
greater than just the defeat of the German Army. Every man in the 761st has
something to prove to everyone back home. For Sam and his fellow tankers,
victory has a double meaning.
