Very interesting Mehti, thank you for sharing! I've never heard of him before.
Here's Mannerheim in his Russian Imperial Guard's uniform.
Very impressive image, thanks Aleks.
Here's another one - Mannerheim leading the coronation procession of the Russian tsar Nikolay II in 1896.
Very nice, I haven't seen that before! The guards uniform is aesthetically stunning.

A Very dignified and intelligent man, Mannerheim was. His defensive tactics and strategies successfully kept the Soviet Union at bay not once but twice. And he was able to keep Hitler at bay as well. A remarkable man by any means.
