Russo-Turkish war documentary 3 of 5

Russian language programme on the war of 1877-8. If, like me, you don't speak Russian there is enough going on visually to make it worth the while. There's clips from movies, old photos, reconstructions - all serves as an excellent introduction to the period. At the end a reenactor demonstrates the breechloader that the Russians were issued with. Part 1 here
