For Ann

In 2016 a bio of Robert Von Greim was published in Germany according to theaerodrome.com book section. I believe you asked me about him. It looks like it might be a good one but its in German only.

Another book I just finished "Histories Greatest Heist The Looting of Russia by the Bolsheviks" Sean Mcweekin  How the Bolsheviks were able to stay in power by selling the loot they took from the Romanovs, upper and middle classes foriegners, the church ect and the people in the west who helped them launder and sell it.

Romannovholics might want to know the crown Alexandra wore at her wedding was sold at Christies in 1927

Two more books of interest:
A Sentimental journey Memoirs 1917-1922 Viktor Shklovsky revolution  and civil war memoirs by a future Soviet writer. He was in Petrograd when the feb/mar revolution broke out.
Artillery in the great war Paul Strong & Sanders marble dealing with the artillery of all the major armies of WW I and how well they performed or in the Russian case how they often failed to perform.

not books but photos of Russia taken by the Germans mostly during WW II go to:

axishistory.com forum section life in the third reich and weimer republic a posting Civilian Life in occupied Soviet Union photos and documents lots of pictures in color and black and white

missinglynx.com Allied vehicles section 5 may 2017 posting period east front color pictures from http/dambiev.livejournal.com

looking at some of these photos I would say in many of them they were scenes the IF would have seen and would have been familiar with.
