The riflemen of Lieutenant Rogov’s Red Army unit (64th Army, Lieutenant-General M. S. Shumilov) are fighting for the Barricade plant (Battle of Stalingrad).

The photo of Red Army unit is rare due to the presence in the frame of a self-loading rifle Tokarev SVT-40 in a sniper version. Sniper version of SVT-40 was inferior in accuracy and effective range to the Mosin sniper rifle model of 1891/30.
