Hey, I actually remember noticing that Russian maps of Afghanistan were remarkably better than anything else we had. I always just chalked it up to the fact that they'd been there for 10 years quite a while before we even showed up.

Russians didn't win WWII. The Soviet Union fought Nazis after being happy for Hitler to destroy national integrity of countries and helped the Nazis conquer Poland only fighting the nazis after being invaded. I know you must hate hearing it but The USA Turned the tied of war.

@Bence Baracsi You cite Barbarossa. That was the German invasion of Russia in 1941. The Battle of Britain was fought in 1940. The most vital battle of WW2. It denied the Germans the ability to invade the UK. This led to the British mounting continuing bombing raids into Germany so tying up vital arms and manpower. But don't argue with me. Ask Albert Speer. He said the biggest mistake the Germans ever made was not defeating the British. And where were the D Day landings launched from..Learn some REAL history...

So if someone would have asked me last week if i liked maps i would have said 'hell no!'. Yet i seem to have binged loads of videos on this channel over the last few days. The comedy mixed with facts and the ad skits are strangely intriguing. I may have become a map facts fan. Good Job with these videos! 😊

There is a great 1970s Russian map of Wellington NZ. It has every building in all the Quarters and the Parliamentary Precinct, all the companies that were in that building, and even little notes on what you could buy from shops at every location. Someone in the Soviet Embassy really really liked maps and spent a lot of time doing it, and updating it.

They do say the Russians have the best spies in the world. They even managed to get one into extremely high up in the Japanese forces during WW2 who told them they had no intention of invading through China. Freeing up a LOT of specially trained and equipped troops to stall and then drive back the German advance in the middle of the Russian winter
