WWI soldiers launched their final offensive after being fatally poisoned by a gas

For nearly a year the Fortress on the Russian border with Prussia was besieged by the German army. Russia’s soldiers displayed extraordinary courage and resilience, holding their ground even being fatally poisoned by a gas. To commemorate the centenary of the start of World War I and to honour the soldiers who fell, hundreds of experts and enthusiasts from all over Europe joined forces to re-create that memorable battle.
