During the Great Patriotic War against the Germans from 1941 to 1945, the Soviet Union mobilized all of its resources to defend the Motherland. Over 34 million people bore arms during the four years of the conflict, including women, old men, and youngsters. It is estimated that thousands of children under the age of 16 years old fought in the ranks of the Red Army. One of them was Sergei “Seryozha” Aleshkov, the youngest soldier of World War Two.
