The publication is dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Victory in the great Patriotic war and the 50th anniversary of the awarding of the title “hero City”to Moscow. In the language of photography it tells about the events, people and military equipment, without which it is impossible to win and defend their Homeland.

The book will be a gift to veterans who did not spare themselves in battle, and the younger generation, as the successors of their cause and the defenders of their country.

The first part of the impressive edition tells about the war years 1941-1945, when Photo A. Sokolovmillion people gave their lives for the independence of their country and the right to decide their own fate. The idea of serving the Motherland and its protection was continued by the second part “Man, patriot, legend”, which is dedicated to the designer-gunsmith Mikhail Kalashnikov, with whom the author was familiar for more than 20 years.

With his world-famous machine gun, the silhouette of which is depicted on the coats of arms of a number of States, Kalashnikov entered the top three most famous, along with the inventors of the first plane and the first car.

The logical continuation of the book were the chapters devoted to the military-Patriotic education of the younger generation and military service. The final “chord” of the book was a solid volume of the Chapter on the combat power of Russia and its Armed Forces, which is equipped with modern weapons and military equipment.

One of the main thematic lines of the book is the idea that the key to our great Victory was the unity of the weapon and the person with whom he is ready to go into battle and sacrifice himself. This is facilitated by a large number of photos from the personal archive of military service veteran Arkady Chiryatnikov, the author of the book.
