I can't imagine the amount of training and rehearsing and practicing across thousands of people it took to do these parades, this is amazing. Thanks for uploading

I've been searching for this parade since I watched footage of it on a documentary on the Soviet Ice Hockey Team called Red Army. Thanks for uploading this historical document.

And at 3:39, you can see future US President and 5 star Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, Dwight D. Eisenhower...watching a Soviet parade! Strange bedfellows, indeed...

Beautiful Atheletes! I wish there were more films of the Soviet Chess tournaments from the 1940's to 1960's. I collect those chess set from then.

Here is the most famous female pilot ace in world history Lydia Litvyak
"White Rose of Stalingrad"
Best of the Best pilot of the world.She was an incredibly skilled but humble pilot.
Litvyak flew her first combat flights in the summer of 1942 over Saratov. In September, she was assigned to the 437 Fighter Regiment, a men's regiment fighting over Stalingrad. On 10 September she moved along with Yekaterina Budanova, Mariya Kuznetsova and Raisa Beliaeva, the commander of the group, and accompanying female ground crew.
Senior Sergeant Inna Pasportnikova, Litvyak's mechanic during the time she flew with the men's regiment.And we never must forget the Jewish heroes who fought in the Red Army against the fascists and who fought their way to Berlin and liberated Auschwitz and other concentration camps together with comrades

This is in the same vein as that parade in '41 while the nazis advanced... defiance. The same "We're not going to be destroyed or beaten down by you."
