    I watched all four videos with joy and despite being Russian I find “La Victoire Est A Nous” is the best but Russian clip looks also impressive but maybe I am just biased hahaha.

    Thanks for posting anyway. Good selection. +1 Rep.

    So did they kill the enemy with bayonets, or make them surrender through onion based chemical warfare?

    I'm not 100% sure, but I've read somewhere that the song comes from Napoléon who liked eating fried onions when he was on campaign. So eating these famous fried onions was like symbol for the older guard.
    But it has to be verified. Maybe there's another explanation.

    Darsh, the last one sounds a lot like the Russian Semenovsky march in the beginning.

    Loved this one since playing 'Fields of Glory' way back in the day! (Plus 'La Victoire Est A Nous' of course)
