Personas from the world’s greatest saga as WWII heroes.

There are probably hundreds, if not thousands of fan fictions about the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie, so I've also decided to look at its main characters with my own eyes and use a bit of a different approach. What if the Star Wars events unfolded not in a galaxy far far away, but in the recent past – during World War II with the Empire as the Axis and the Rebels as the Allies. I think you can figure out the rest. 

Here are 7 central characters from the new movie presented as Soviet soldiers.
