Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Acquired by the present owner directly from the photographer

    Baltermants, D., Selected Photographs (Moscow: Planeta Publishers, 1977), unpaginated
    Von Laue, A. & T. & Baltermants, D., Faces of a Nation (Golden, CO: Fulcrum Publishing, 1996), p.71

    'When first published, Baltermants's photo of charging soldiers was criticised as it depicted "half-a-man" and was thus inconsistent with social realism. It has since become one of the most enduring war photos ever taken.' (Von Laue & Baltermants, p.71)
