Description

English

This photograph shows a military unit marching through the Albanian mountains. The panoramic overview shows the harsh conditions through which the army and civilians had to pass, fleeing in the wake of a superior enemy.

It was taken by Russian war photographer and artist Samson Tchernof, who is particularly remembered for his remarkable testimonials from this, the Great Retreat.

Serbian

Још једна фотографија Самсона Чернова, руског фотографа, који је остао посебно упамћен по упечатљивим сведочанствима из периода повлачења.
Овај панорамски преглед терена довољно говори о тешким условима кроз које су се пробијали војници и цивили у повлачењу пред надмоћним непријатељем.
