>>80593 their furniture and tech were all the same. Like you could've walked into 100 apartments all over Moscow and they'll only seem to have had the furniture and rooms moved around. Only things that were unique to each househokd were things made by the people themselves.
>>80660 >OP B-but im the OP Also i remember a long time ago there was a 30+hour documentary on youtube in around 47 parts of the soviet union that went into great detail about politics, the average life and the military, i can't find it anywhere now though
Watched this guys vids about daily life growing up in the USSR a while back.
He moved to USA and became a libertarian.
watch at like 1.5x or 2x speed for time
Here's a 24 part series on Cold War where they interview a ton of top people like several US presidents, Gorbachev, Castro, Kruschev's son, top KGB and CIA guys, Kissinger, Brzezinski & other top US officials.
pic related is great new biography of Stalin based on primary sources from recently opened USSR archives including Stalin's personal archive not seen by previous biographers (only volume 1 of 3 is out so far)

Political loss, military victory.
Not about the Soviet Union in general, but I saw a pretty solid documentary series a little while ago about the history of Russian military aviation. I think it was called "Wings of Russia", I watched it on youtube.
>>84994 kill ratios do not win wars. Controlling territory does and the US/South was never able to do that effectively.

I'd try stuff like >blocks >interior >kitchen >living room >furniture etc.
Mind that many of them are stock photos and propaganda materials, so naturally they show better conditions than what the average gommie citizen could expect. One thing that sucks about old photos in general is that people only took pictures of what they deemed very pretty or very important.
>>80593 common house hold in USSR ranged from republic to republic, from city to city. Soviet Union was biggest country at the time with third largest population in the world. It had dozens of republics and about 200 ethnicities. Couple pictures can't to it justice.
