This from a Russian Blog. Don't worry, this is the English version. Many thanks to Larry Parker for turning us onto this.

What a great collection. I'm so glad there are Kodachromes out there to give us such a vivid palette to our otherwise B&W war. As an "action film" it was not suitable because of the low speeds, but the color is out of this world I think you would all agree after seeing these scans. It looks like these were recent pictures shot with re-enactors. Phenomenal!
