Our magazine is a continuation of the newspaper that had been publishing during the Great Patriotic War 1941-45 by the Major Political Department of the Red Army in Russian, Ukrainian and German languages.
"Frontline illustration" was propagandistic magazine addressed mostly to frontline
soldiers, workers, collective farmers, or even to German POWs...
"Frontline Illustration" informed them about the latest news from
battlefields, the Red Army's victories, about Soviet heroes helped in
discussions about combat experience and even sometimes was giving a
pack of humor.
After finishing of the war, publication of FI was stopped.
Almost after 55 years, in 2000, "Strategia KM" publishing house
started publication of illustrated magazine with the same title.
This new magazine is a modern type of periodical containing numerous
photos, drawings, blueprints, maps, figures and other info about past
conflicts, battles, history of weapons and vehicles.
New "Frontline illustration" is intended mostly for the fans of military history which
are interested in detailed modern info about specific aspects. But
also we are trying to preserve traditions of our wartime predecessor.
Our authors tries to give information in the most reliable and clear
form using raw archival data. This makes our magazine interesting for
a large number of readers both in Russia and abroad.
