Stalingrad itself is Cliche now, lol. Movies, games, etc.

I mean there was Kharkov, Leningrad, Kiev, Warsaw, Bucharest, Sevastopol, etc.

Also, I don't know why, but I want to see a Katyusha truck.

4tran, did you mean the Cossacks?

The Eastern front was the most brutal of the European theaters and could even rival the Second Sino-Japanese war(The Chinese theater of WWII).

The Pacific War was brutal, but not in the since of savage combat and more into the fact the Americans shot everything that moved and sometimes didn't move.

I also agree, when WWII shows are made by Japanese studio it does have a bias, but I guess the same can be said for Western versions of wars, etc.

*One last thing, I could think of a few more infantry weapons that were iconic. The M1928 and M1 Thompson was iconic for the British as the commando weapon(Early war), the Sten(mainly Mk.I) was iconic as the resistance weapon, and the M1 Garand was iconic as the best semi-automatic rifle. The MG42 was also iconic as a defensive weapon.
