It was near Voronezh in the summer of 1942, General Lizyukov died in battle, during which he tried to inspire tank fighters with his personal example. From the memoirs of Konstantin Rokossovsky:
In these battles, the commander of the 5th tank Army General Lizyukov. He moved in battle formations of one of his formations. To inspire the tankmen, the general rushed forward on his KV tank, burst into the enemy’s position and folded his head there.

Historians argue about the details of the death of the general and what prompted him to directly participate in a tank battle.

      Sasha, he is a Soviet general. hi
      The future general Lizyukov was born in the Belarusian city of Gomel on 26/03/1900 in the family of a rural teacher, who later became the director, Ilya Lizyukov. The family had two more sons: the eldest Eugene, who later became a partisan commander, and the younger Peter, who also rose to the rank of Hero of the Soviet Union. Mom died early, Alexander was only nine years old. Perhaps partly this was the reason for the unambiguous choice of the military field. On April 7, 1918 he voluntarily entered the Red Army, the future general Lizyukov continued his studies. He began with the artillery courses of the commanding staff in Moscow. The rifle division of the 12th army of the southwestern front - this was the first appointment that the future general Lizyukov received. The hero’s biography during the Civil War was full of new appointments and victories in battles against General Anton Denikin and Ataman Simon Petlyura. In 1920 he was appointed the artillery commander of the Kommunar armored train. He participated in battles in the war with Poland, which ended in 1921. During the war, the train was captured by the Polish army. Then the future general Lizyukov took part in the suppression of the uprising in Tambov. A little later, in the fall of 1921, he was sent to continue military education in Petrograd. In 1923 he graduated from the Higher Armored School. After graduating from the armored school, he received a new assignment - to the so-called Trotsky train. In September, he assumed the post of deputy commander of an armored train in the Far East. For several years, the future General Lizyukov served on several more armored trains. A little later, he continued his military education. In the fall of 1924, Alexander Ilyich entered the Mikhail Frunze Academy, which trained senior officers. The study lasted three years, during which he tried himself both as a writer and publicist, and as a poet. In the overwhelming majority of his journalistic works, he devoted military-technical topics. In addition, he took part in the preparation and publication of the magazine Red Dawns. In his poetic works, he mainly expressed revolutionary views and an unequivocal attitude to the overthrown power. The following lines can be quoted from the printed verses: “Our homeland of the workers / And the fatherland of the peasants / Will not strangle, will not undermine / Neither bourgeois, nor arrogant pan!” As soon as Alexander Lizyukov graduated from the higher military academy, he tried himself in teaching. During the year, he taught cadets the armored skills in Leningrad. Then he worked for another year there as an assistant in the training part. Then he was transferred to the Dzerzhinsky Military Academy to teach tactics at the faculty of motorization and mechanization. After that, he was appointed to the propaganda department of the technical headquarters of the workers 'and peasants' red army, where he was responsible for the editorial publishing house. Two years later he received a new appointment to the Moscow Military District, where he was appointed commander of a tank battalion. A year later he was entrusted with a whole tank regiment. However, at this career stage, he not only commanded a regiment, but was fully responsible for its formation.

    General A.I. Lizyukov is very grateful. A dinner spoon is good for something.

    It is somehow strange to read: General Lizyukov’s Order of Zhukov ... They were allies, that is, they fought at the same time.
    There were three brothers Lizyukova: Alexander, Peter and Eugene. Peter Ilyich, like Alexander Ilyich was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union, died in 1945. Evgeni Ilyich after a serious wound became a partisan, the commander of the detachment. He died in 1944.
    Here is such a family of Lizyukovs. In Gomel there is a street of the Lizyukov Brothers.
