    Impressive. I’m sorry to have seen so few war memorials in Europe, let alone those of the "other" side.

    Nice shot, Ian. I’m only a bit concerned with something which clearly seems to be a ballistic missile, in the upper right corner of the picture! 😉

    A most impressive monument, definately imposing and I can only guess, quite powerful in its presence .. having nearly 300 soldiers buried within I would find intimidating and saddening.
