    Some views to the Reichstag from the Moltke Brueke , the Russian 150 and 171 Rifle Divisions assaulted across the bridge into the Diplomatic quarter and the Ministry of the interior which was situated to the right of the Bridge , they then fought towards the Kroll Opera House in the open area in the foreground of the Reichstag which at that time was stil lbeing defended by KoenigsTiger from s SS Panzer Abt 503.

    They were also under heavy fire from the 88 Flak guns firing from the Zoo Flak Turm which is why the final assault on the Reichstag itself was carried out at night !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
