Russia has been forced to fight off invaders and plunderers for millennia. The West has attacked her directly (Napoleon, the Nazis), or by proxy (The Turks in the 1850s Crimean War, egged on by the French and British) almost every 50 years. Russia has always prevailed—or survived—but at huge cost in lives and suffering. Image: Relief of the (British) Light Brigade, National Army Museum.
