Red Army soldiers sit on the ruins of the German Reich Chancellery in Berlin looking through boxes of German medals that would never be awarded following the Battle of Berlin and the of defeat of the Third Reich, May 1945 by Evgeniy Khaldei.
While doing some Third Reich research, I found Erwin Smith’s real life counterpart, Reinhard Heydrich. Both had features Hitler described as Aryan: blonde hair, blue eyes, tall, and physically fit. Another similarity includes: Erwin is skilled with blades, and Heydrich is skilled at fencing. Both deal with a type of sword. However, Erwin kills titans, and Heydrich kills innocent people.
