Standing with other general officers on a Budapest street. Size approx. 6" x 3 ".

Slight discoloration towards the bottom of the obverse, mostly on the right side.

While the orders and medals on his uniform are not sharp enough to verify with complete certainty that central figure is indeed Rokossovsky, the shape of the face and the officer's posture would indicate that it is, in fact, him.

Interestingly, the generals are wearing a variety of uniforms. Only Rokossovsky is wearing the new 1945 uniform. (This situation could be seen with some frequency throughout Central Eur

Interestingly, the generals are wearing a variety of uniforms. Only Rokossovsky is wearing the new 1945 uniform. (This situation could be seen with some frequency throughout Central Europe in the late spring of 1945: Moscow had issued new uniform regs but very few of the new uniforms had made their way from the quartermaster stores to officers "in the field.")
