Very interesting idea.  Seems like it would be pretty tough to get the perspective perfect unless you could somehow hook your camera up to your computer and have some sort of “live view” and overlay the historical picture with lots of transparency. There must be some programs available to do that… trial and error would just be too tedious.

Never before in history have active-duty American troops been invited to march in the Victory Day parade, according to the United States military. The occasion is the 65th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II, a date that carries an almost sacred meaning in Russia.

Ukrainian and Russian sailors wearing in World War II-era Soviet soldiers’ uniforms march during a parade rehearsal in the central Ukrainian city of Sevastopol, the main base of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

Anyone know what make / model guns those are?

The story that is before the picture set talks about the controversy surrounding the historic “Flag Raising” picture (shown on left) which was taken atop Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, on Feb. 23, 1945.  The photographer, Joe Rosenthal, won a Pulitzer Prize for the picture.

It is a German Half Track.  Pretty awesome…
