World War II, or the Second World War was a global military conflict which involved a majority of the world's nations, including all of the great powers,
organized into two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis.

The war involved the mobilization of over 100 million military personnel, making it the most widespread war in history. Over 70 million people, the majority of them civilians, were killed, making it the deadliest conflict in human history.

The war was fought between the German Reich, its allies, and many pro-Nazi volunteers from occupied states, against the Soviet Union, and eventually its allies of the British Commonwealth, France and the United States.

The conflict began on 22 June 1941 as part of the Operation Barbarossa Offensive, when Axis forces crossed the borders, described in the German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact, thereby invading the Soviet Union. The war ended on 9 May 1945, and the Soviet Union soldiers gained a victory.

The Soviet Union lost their 27 million citizens.
The Soviet heroic soldiers brought the great victory and saved many peoples of Asia and Europe from the German fascist.

Later, on occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Mongolian Revolution, Mongolian sculptor Ts.Dorjsuren with Soviet specialists built a great complex of sculpture on the Zaisan memorial of Bogd Khan Mountain in order to immortalize the Soviet soldiers’ merit.
“Soviet soldiers merit was kept for ever with the fire on ground and with the sun on sky”, written by D.Purevdorj, is on a circle memorial.
