1941. Intelligence on enemy corps headquarters


The following abbreviations are used in the article: AK - army corps, IN - military district, GraA - Army Group, Spacecraft - Red Army, u - motorized housing Goals Difference - intelligence materials, Ro - intelligence department of the headquarters RU - Reconnaissance of the General Staff of the spacecraft, TGr - tank Group.


In the previous part RM were examined about the headquarters of the field armies and TGr, which came to the leadership of the USSR and spacecraft in 1941. The reliability of these RMs was unsatisfactory. Intelligence was not able to detect a relocation to the border of the TGr headquarters in the same way as the deployment of the North, Center, and South GRA headquarters at the border. Information on the deployment of army headquarters on the territory of East Prussia and former Poland was also unreliable. Not all the headquarters were discovered by intelligence, and their relocation on the eve of the war directly to the border was not recorded. In this part, we will consider the Republic of Moldova on the headquarters of the corps, which arrived in 1941.

Is information about corps headquarters and corps groupings important at the border?


The absence of large headquarters at the border was likely to indicate that war was not expected in the near future. So they had to think in the upper echelons of spacecraft control. This point of view was reinforced by the absence of a significant number of troops at the border (according to intelligence), concentrated on the territory of East Prussia and former Poland. A detailed review of the Republic of Moldova on the enemy forces concentrated against PribOVO, KOVO and ZAPOVO was presented in the first 4 parts intelligence articles.

A version appeared that the top leadership of the spacecraft did not care about the RM about the presence of enemy fronts, armies, corps and motorized groups at the border. The main (allegedly) for our command was the number of enemy divisions. Only the German command needed information on the deployment of troops, headquarters and mechanized groups. As an example, below is a fragment of a German map with printed intelligence information about our troops.


The German command paid much more attention to the efficiency of command and control of its troops in an attack than the authors of this version. The two fragments of the German map below show that by the start of the war large headquarters of all levels moved closer to the border. The problem was that all our intelligence services did not record the movement of these headquarters.

1941. Intelligence on enemy corps headquarters



Later, when intelligence data became more complete, not only German divisions began to appear on the maps of our army headquarters headquarters and fronts of the General Staff, but their affiliation with the corps (armies) was also indicated. Famous locations of large German headquarters began to be applied to maps.




Insufficiently complete and inaccurate RMs on the deployment of large German headquarters are likely to be associated with countering the leakage of information from the German command and carrying out mass misinformation of all possible sources of our intelligence.

Intelligence on the deployment of German troops


The most complete RM content on the deployment of German troops (to Slovakia), which are published, is Summary No. 5 of RU dated 15.6.41. It includes rather detailed data from the regional border military organizations as of 31.5.41. The reports often ask the question: "From which RM does the author cite data on the deployment of German troops and headquarters?"

I will provide information from the RU report dated 15.6.41 for readers interested in this topic.












The report was prepared according to RM, received on 31.5.41. Information in the RO for RU was to be prepared on May 29-30. Since a significant part of the materials came from time-delayed sources due to their transfer through the mailbox and messenger system, the RM actually reflected the situation somewhere on May 26-28. Check the reliability of these RMs in terms of information on the deployment of corps headquarters.

In accordance with the RU report, the headquarters were (verified information): the 7th AK in Tilsit, the 12th AK in Insterburg, the 8th AK in Koenigsberg, the 6th AK in Ciechanow, the 9th AK in Warsaw, the 32nd AK in Lublin, the 20th AK in Danzig, the 21st AK in Poznan.

AK headquarters with unknown numbers (reliable information) were located in the cities: Letzen, Allenstein, Miedzyzenec, Byala Podlaska, Lodz, Zamosc, Klemansuv, Rzeszow, Ivonic, Tarnow and Krakow.

Requiring verification by the RM about the headquarters of the AK: 24th (Lancut), 5th (Petrukov), 38th (Katowice). The RM also reported on the presence in Kielce of the headquarters of the 2nd AK. This data requires verification, as Earlier there was marked the headquarters of the 1st AK. In other words, the very location of the headquarters of the corps in Kielce is not in doubt. The only question is the number of this AK headquarters.

The reliability of information about the location of the headquarters of the 7th and 12th AK will be considered in the next part.

The RMs on the deployment of the headquarters of the 20th and 21st AKs were previously considered. Our intelligence confused them with the headquarters of the 20th and 21st HE. The VO headquarters, in contrast to the AK headquarters, could not be redeployed to the border and in their structure did not correspond to the AK headquarters. Observation of them did not reveal the fact of relocation to the border before the attack of these headquarters and their troops.

Reliability of RM about license plates


The figure shows data on the deployment of headquarters in the cities: Kielce, Ciechanow, Koenigsberg, Warsaw and Lublin. The information is used from the German map with the deployment of troops as of 27.5.41 and from the map of the ZAPOVO headquarters with the situation on 21.6.41 prepared on 23.6.41.


Information on AK numbers in four out of five cases is incorrect. Accurate data on the location of the 9th AK became unreliable a few days after the relocation of this headquarters closer to the border. RM remained unreliable until June 21. All five headquarters, according to intelligence, had not been relocated to the border by the start of the war. Just like army headquarters.

To understand how the German command acted, hiding the movement of its mobile troops, I propose to consider the data on the 32nd AK. Intelligence "saw" this headquarters, rechecked information about it, recorded its location from May 1940 (at least) until the outbreak of war. RM repeatedly checked and testified to the presence of the headquarters of a non-existent AK. This cannot be a mistake, because in the summer of 1940, the headquarters of the 3rd AK was redeployed to Lublin, which was not discovered by our intelligence before the war. Someone carefully portrayed the headquarters of the 32nd AK.

In March 1941, the headquarters of the 3rd AK was reorganized into the headquarters of the 3rd MK (III. Armeekops (mot.)). But for some reason not one headquarters of our intelligence was discovered. Intelligence obtained some data about the deployment of AKs, but there was no information at all about the presence of microns or TGr. There is a pattern in this matter. The German command was able to completely hide all information about the presence of large mobile groups from our intelligence.

At the end of May, the headquarters of the 3rd MK and the headquarters of the 55th AK are in Lublin. After 19.6, both headquarters will move to the border, but our intelligence will still be sure that there is some AK headquarters in Lublin before the war. This AK is present on the maps of the ZAPOVO and KOVO headquarters, with the situation on 21.6.41. As well as several other AKs, which are supposedly located in places of constant deployment. Intelligence data about this will pass through the RO VO, through the leadership of the spacecraft and the leadership of the USSR. Looking at these RMs, we can say that there is nothing terrible yet: after all, the enemy troops and headquarters for the most part are quite far from the border. The headquarters of large mobile strike groups have not yet arrived in Poland and East Prussia.

We continue consideration of the RM. Our intelligence reports on the presence of AK headquarters in the cities of Allenstein and Zamosc.


There is no AK headquarters in Allenstein itself. There is only the headquarters of the 4th TGr, which the Germans did not particularly hide, using its closed name in correspondence. In the correspondence for the other three TGr, their coded names were used. But the headquarters of the two mk near Allenstein were not again discovered by our intelligence. As well as the headquarters of the 3rd mk ... The same situation with AK in Zamosc. It is detected, but not found to be microns.


Of the five locations of the buildings, only information about the location of the 13th AK in Lodz is reliable.


Of the four locations for AK headquarters, only the headquarters in Krakow is reliable. However, this is an inferior corps: of a reduced composition and without troops.

Next, consider unverified information that has the right to be false. In two cases, it coincides with the locations of the corps headquarters. However, the 14th AK is MK.


Regarding the headquarters of the 7th and 12th AK, we can say for sure that the information on their location is false.

Thus, out of 23 AK headquarters locations, only in eight cases do the headquarters locations match intelligence data. In some cases, intelligence did not find that the headquarters belonged not to the AK, but to the army corps (motorized). As of 27.5.41, seven mk were located in East Prussia and former Poland: the 3rd, 14th, 24th, 39th, 41st, 48th and 57th.

In his memoirs, the former chief of RU mentions the presence of 22 corps and the knowledge of half of the numbers of corps headquarters.


The summary refers to the numbers of the twelve corps headquarters. The reliability of this information can now be judged by the readers themselves. In fact, by the 22.6.41 g. There were 43 corps headquarters near the Soviet-German border.

    Very interesting stuff, thanks!
    But is there any similar information that the German special services knew about the deployment of our troops in the western military districts?
    The summary refers to the numbers of the twelve corps headquarters. The reliability of this information can now be judged by the readers themselves. In fact, by the 22.6.41 g. There were 43 corps headquarters near the Soviet-German border.
    It can be assumed that, given the Soviet specifics, the Germans knew much less than ours.

      Comrade и Same Lech , Thanks for the kind words!
      The absence of such words leads to the fact that it was simply not interesting to write. Thanks again!

      Comrade, maps with German intelligence are. Only they are limited to the end of May 1941 and reappear only after the war. As with the intelligence reports of the General Staff of the Spacecraft ...

      Another article is planned in spring (from 3 ... 4 parts) about the German mobile forces (cavalry, motorized infantry and tanks). There will also be many links to maps, correspondence, etc. There in the last part I will give links to sources in which there are archive maps. I apologize, but if you put them earlier, it will be uninteresting to read. Yes, and these materials can be used by those who write faster than me ... I will give a few fragments of maps.

              Thanks! I know it. I suggest in the future, after publishing links to dig into them ourselves.
              The fact is that many maps are fully visible either on a very large scale (when it requires a lot of scans) or on the smallest - and there you can’t see anything ... Therefore, I reduce everything to small fragments. I apologize for this. request

                  There was no general amnesty - some commanders were tried even in the fifties. True, not only for the outbreak of war, but also for later sins. By the way, even Sorge was under suspicion that it was he who, with his thoughtless actions, led to the failure of the group, and precisely because of this, he was not represented in the title of Hero of the Soviet Union.

            Army Center Center Intelligence Map for the same period

            This is the only source that the author cited, and on which the coordinate grid is visible, but there is not a single link whose map this is and who made it. But this is not even the point, but the fact that it refutes the author’s lies, because it does not indicate the Wehrmacht’s compounds, and most importantly, the intelligence parts of the Abwehr are not indicated, i.e. the map alone cannot indicate that the General Staff of the General Staff submitted incorrect data about the Germans. So, by primitive manipulation of documents, the author tries to impress a gullible public that he has studied thousands of documents that he can be trusted, although a professional just needs to look at the map to understand that the author of the articles understands them as a well-known character in oranges. Not only that, this map could have been created not by Wehrmacht officers, but after the war for some historical research, as we did, for example:

      All this can be found in Franz Halder's War Diaries.
      Who read them, for this article is practically nothing new.
      Franz Halder (German: Franz Halder; June 30, 1884, Würzburg, Bavaria - April 2, 1972, Aschau im Chiemgau, Bavaria) - German military leader, Colonel General (1940). Chief of the General Staff of the Wehrmacht in 1938-1942.

        Not only is there nothing new, so the author simply perverts many facts for the sake of his version. For example, the author states that
        Intelligence was not able to detect a relocation to the border of the TGr headquarters in the same way as the deployment of the North, Center and South headquarters at the border.

        However, he cites the data for June 1, 1941, which he uses from report No. 5, and he ignores the whole array of information that the General Staff received three weeks before the war, as if nothing had been mined in intelligence at that time. Although any literate person understands that the head of the RU was personally reporting to Tymoshenko and Zhukov on a daily intelligence basis - such was the order in the General Staff always.

      Yes, they also had far "no fountain", from the diary of the beginning of the General Staff Halder 22 June 1941:

      Russian motorized Pskov group (operational reserve) discovered 300 km south of the previously assumed area of ​​its concentration. It is located south of the Western Dvina! It is only beneficial for us.

      Nothing to imagine a mistake in ... 300 km!

      From the same diary, an assessment of the correlation of forces (also errors) June 20, 41

      .................................................. ..... Germ / USSR

      Infantry divisions + mining infantry 102 * / 154
      Tank divisions ................................ 19/10
      Motorized divisions ............... 14 ** / 37 mechanized brigades
      Cavalry divisions .................... 1 / 25½


      And here is what he remarked absolutely correctly (June 22):
      In recent days the enemy completely passively watched behind all our activities

      Which, among other factors, led to the tragedy of June 22, incl. to such crimes (in my opinion):
      Halder: Border Bridges over the Bug and other rivers everywhere captured our troops without a fight and in complete safety.

      There are no words .... negative

      But in general, we knew the situation well, but the ASSESSMENTS were erroneous, from the TASS statement from 13 June 41 g:
      The USSR allegedly rejected these claims in connection with which Germany began to concentrate its troops near the borders of the USSR with the aim of attacking the USSR

      TASS states: Germany also adheres steadily the terms of the Soviet-German non-aggression pact, like the Soviet Union, which is why, in the opinion of Soviet circles, rumors about Germany’s intention to break the pact and launch an attack on the USSR are devoid of any soil, and the recent transfer of German troops freed from operations in the Balkans to the eastern and northeastern regions of Germany bound, presumably with other motives that have no relation to Soviet-German relations

      And what motives ?!

      It was impossible to make a more contradictory assessment of glaring facts.

      And what a relaxing, instead of mobilizing, effect it had on the people and the army, there was no question: how much bitter bewilderment about this Statement is in the memoirs and front-line soldiers and others ...

      Thanks to the author for the HARRY and meticulous work in the desire to sort out the situation on the eve of the war hi

        But in general, we knew the situation well, but the ESTIMATES were erroneous, from the TASS statement of June 13, 41:


        Vasilevsky A.M. "The work of a lifetime"

        "Some readers are inclined to consider it a document that played an almost fatal role in our preparations for the war, which dulled the vigilance of Soviet people at the most important and critical moment in the life of our country.

        If we consider this message in isolation from the foreign and domestic policies of the Communist Party, we can probably draw some negative conclusions. But to do so would be reckless.

        The TASS report of June 14, 1941 is, on the one hand, a military-political probe, which has clearly shown that Germany is heading for a war against the USSR and the threat of war is approaching. This stemmed from the deathly silence of the fascist leaders on the request addressed to them by the Soviet government.

        On the other hand, this statement showed the desire of our government to use every opportunity to delay the start of the war, to gain time to prepare our Armed Forces to repel aggression.

        Thus, I believe it is correct to consider that the TASS report of June 14, 1941 is evidence of the concern of the party and government about the security of our country and its vital interests.

        The fact that this message is a foreign policy action is evidenced by the continued implementation of organizational and mobilization measures, the transfer of military units to the west, the transfer of a number of enterprises to fulfill military orders, etc.

        For us, the staff of the General Staff, as, naturally, for other Soviet people, the TASS message at first caused some surprise. But since no fundamentally new directives followed, it became clear that it does not apply to the Armed Forces, nor to the country as a whole. [110]

        In addition, at the end of that day, First Deputy Chief of the General Staff General N.F. Vatutin explained that the purpose of the TASS message was to verify the true intentions of the Nazis, and it no longer attracted our attention. "

          If we consider this message in isolation from the foreign and domestic policies of the Communist Party, we can probably draw some negative conclusions.

          And the peasant, the worker, the Red Armyman, the commander, HOW to make out true meaning of TASS Messages? belay

          After all, unlike also "surprised" Vasilevsky, First Deputy Chief of the General Staff, General N. F. Vatutin NOT clarified"that the purpose of the TASS report was to verify the true intentions of the Nazis, and that it no longer attracted our attention ".

          They took the “TASS Message”, naturally, at face value and brought irreparable harm.

          Zhukov also testifies directly opposite to Vasilevsky:
          13 June S.K. Timoshenko in my presence called I.V. Stalin and insisted on asking for permission on bringing troops of border districts on alert and deploying first echelons for cover plans.

          I. V. Stalin said:

          - Now this should not be done, we are preparing a TASS message and publish it tomorrow.

          - Well? I asked.

          I ordered the newspapers to read tomorrow, - S.K. Timoshenko said irritably

          On June 14, a TASS message was published in our press.

          When the Soviet people read this optimistic TASS message, fascist generals, gathered in Hitler’s office, reported to him about the complete readiness of the German troops to attack the Soviet Union.

          The next day, we visited JV Stalin and reported to him about the alarming mood and the need to bring troops into full combat readiness.

          We have a non-aggression pact with Germany- said I.V. Stalin. - Germany is head over heels bogged down in the war in the West, and i believe in that Hitler will not risk creating a second front for himself by attacking to the Soviet Union. Hitler not such a turak

          Hitler was not a fool ... Konstantin Simonov book "Through the eyes of a man of my generation"

          "In many memories about the first period of the war I read about the TASS statement of June 14, 1941 and that disorienting effectthat it had.

          So it turned out in practice. .


          And only after the war, another thing was thought:
          Although nowRereading this TASS statement, I think that it can be considered as a document, which, under other attendant circumstances, could not only reassure, but also alert "

          By the way, the TASS message was not at all lonely: Molotov at the 7th session of the USSR Armed Forces:
          We can confirm that, in our opinion, at the heart of the existing good-neighborly and friendly Soviet-German relations non-random considerations of a opportunistic nature lie and fundamental state interests both the Soviet Union and Germany. ”

              On June 10, 1941, the commander of the Kiev district, Kirponos, arbitrarily ordered the troops to occupy the forefield, the front line of the fortified areas. On the same day Zhukov became aware of this, and he demanded that Kirponos cancel the order.

              Only on June 13, 1941, the command of the Kiev district received an order from the General Staff to advance formations from a depth closer to the border. Their nomination has begun June 17-18.But they should have arrived in the designated areas already ... June 27-28.

              Therefore, it did not help .-no one had time and reached

              The cover plan was never introduced. neither in Kiev, nor in other districts. Cover troops did not occupy the foreground. AND the German army burst into the USSR without much difficulty.

              PS I emphasize once again the obvious: before the war no one (even minor) question not decided by the General Staff Red Army and the People's Commissariat of Defense without the sanction of Stalin.

                  The implementation of the measures provided for by the operational and mobilization plans could be carried out only by special government decision. This special decision followed only on the night of June 22, 1941, and even then not completely.

                  There are a lot of questions to Zhukov, but he just doesn’t need to hang up what he was least concerned with, if only because the 1941 plan, where these 30 mechanized corps were laid down, was developed long before his appointment, and not only that, based on opportunities of our industry, their formation should have ended in 1947, as one author correctly pointed out. And it was not Zhukov who pushed the foundations of the theory of motor-vehicle war, but the leadership of the Red Army’s ABTU, that's where the legs of this reorganization of the tank troops grew from. Therefore, the newly appointed Zhukov, without authority in the People’s Commissariat of Defense, could not quickly change something that other commanders had developed before him — you, as a professional, must understand.

                    In June 1940, it was finally decided to form the MK (so far 9). They ripped off the Germans (although we already had it). Well, in general, it’s right and commendable (after the French campaign, rip off to the winner). TG = Ud. Army, and mech.korpusa with them.

                    But with this we gouged all the armored forces. We removed all tanks from the SD and SK. Their brigades began to make divisions. And where to get frames? And where is the structure for maintaining the equipment in the appropriate technical condition? Where is the base for the combat training of the "double" brigades, and the formation of new ones (tankodromes, shooting ranges, training fields)? Yes, just a barracks fund where?
                    What could they do. commanders, often (and in most cases) recruited from other military branches. and how could they train troops?
                    The Germans, doubling their TDs, did not create more than one new tank regiment (they halved the armored brigade, and in principle divisions can only be called tank divisions). They understood that it was impossible to create. something working from scratch.

                      You are mistaken - the first mechanized corps appeared much earlier, long before the French company:
                      March 11, 1932 The Revolutionary Military Council decided to form two mechanized corps.
                      In April 1932, the Defense Commission at the Council of People's Commissars of the USSR, on the report of the Revolutionary Military Council, adopted a resolution on the formation of mechanized corps. The first mechanized corps was deployed in the LenVO on the basis of the 11th Red Banner Leningrad Rifle Division (SD) in the autumn of 1932. The 11th MK included 31, 32 ICBMs and the 33rd SPBR. At the same time, in the Ukrainian Military District, on the basis of the 45th Red Banner Volyn SD, the formation of the 45th MK (133, 134 ICBMs, 135 SPBRs) began.

As for the newly created buildings, in 1941 the exercises really simply could not be physically carried out - there were neither personnel nor equipment, which is why we did not have time to do this by the beginning of the war.

                        This, in principle, cannot be — there are no two identical armies, and therefore, if they take someone else’s structure, then basically when there is the same type of armament and the command staff is trained in the same science at higher educational institutions, as it was, for example, with the Warsaw Treaty countries, where all higher military men studied in the USSR.

                        Of course the military - they also developed the theory:
                        Commander Triandafillov. The man who invented the blitzkrieg.
                        And in 1926 this experience of the Civil War was analyzed and summarized in the book "The scope of operations of modern armies." And, almost immediately, ideas were developed in the book "The nature of operations of modern armies."
                        Based on these works, the theory of Deep Operation was developed. The essence of the theory: "the simultaneous suppression of the enemy’s defense by all available means of destruction to the full depth, a breakthrough in the chosen direction with the subsequent rapid development of tactical success in the operational way by landing airborne assault forces and the introduction of a powerful mobile group into the battle, the basis of which are tanks; the main condition for success is the interaction between all means of struggle. "
                        The second half of the 20s. There are simply no tanks in Germany yet. The main mobile forces of the European armies, as before, are cavalry.
                        And the author writes about the breakthrough by airborne forces and the development of success by tank groups!
                        None of the headquarters of the world has ever worked anything like this before.
                        Vladimir Kiriakovich Triandafillov.

But the Germans' TPs are usually 2 battalions (less than 3), we have 4. The Germans after France TD consisting of 2 brigades (Tank and motorized rifle - exactly like that). halved the tank brigade., transferring the TP to other PDs and turning them into tank ones (immediately doubling).

I can’t assert that only Zhukov is to blame, because firstly Tymoshenko was his boss, and secondly Zhukov was only a few months the commander of the district and a few months of the NSS, as a commander of the scale of the armed forces, he was weak.

          As for the events of spring-early June 1941, it really could not be done here, because there was a hope that the war would not start this summer, and it could be postponed for next year. But what prevented Zhukov and Tymoshenko in the evening of June 21 at a meeting with Stalin to obtain permission to introduce a plan for covering the districts, at least for the border armies in the form of a short order, rather than give birth to a directive, is still the subject of controversy for military professionals, who, unlike various historians are well aware of what this led to later.

          The PS will emphasize once again the obvious: before the war, not a single (even insignificant) issue was decided by the General Staff of the Red Army and the People’s Commissariat of Defense without the sanction of Stalin.

          He jerked - Stalin did not go into combat training at all, and even plans to cover the districts were prepared without any instructions from him. So Stalin can be blamed for something that the military could do, either ignoramuses or liars, because in fact, until June 22, the leader trusted everything in our military, and did not meddle in their affairs with petty tutelage, and this is a fact. And only the beginning of the war made him delve into the essence of all issues of military planning and providing troops - but that was already a completely different matter.

              Figovo was told to you, because the situation was completely different, and it happened not through the fault of Zhukov, who on the eve of the war became the NSS, but by completely different officials. You first understand what the "operational plan" was, and only then hang all the dogs on Zhukov:
              1941 Lessons and Conclusions
              One of the conditions for the timely and planned deployment of the Armed Forces was their reliable operational cover. The planning of all these activities was the basis for the development of the operational plan. The situation, however, was complicated by the fact that in the prewar years, among the leadership of the People’s Commissariat of Defense and the General Staff there was no single approach to understanding the operational plan and the strategic deployment plan. Often these concepts were identified or replaced by one another. This situation eroded the focus of planning and, of course, reduced its quality.
              Analysis of a large number of archival documents allows us to state that the operational plan, as the main document of the war plan, consisted of a set of documents ensuring, during their implementation, the organized deployment and engagement of the army and navy in accordance with the goals and objectives of the first [52] strategic operations. It included: a government directive on the basics of the strategic deployment of the Armed Forces; a note developed by the chief of the General Staff and approved by the USSR People’s Commissar of Defense on the procedure for the strategic deployment of the Armed Forces (tasks of fronts and fleets) with an appendix of a map and a summary table of the distribution of military formations, aviation and units of the Red Army across fronts and armies; strategic transportation plan to concentrate the Armed Forces in theaters of military operations; strategic deployment cover plans; plan for the rear and material support of the army; plans for communications, military communications, air defense, etc. In contrast to the operational plan, the plan for the first operations and tasks of the fronts were not determined in terms of strategic deployment.

              The operational plan is only part of the war plan, and we didn’t have it close. So what can we talk about if it wasn’t worked out before Zhukov, and at that time, what remained before the start of the war, if they even created such a plan, they still wouldn’t have time to implement it.

            That is, at 1.30, ALL districts MUST play a combat alert !!

            Was this done - to declare a BATTLE alarm and to raise troops with bringing to FULL BG? NO! EVERYONE CONTINUES to sleep except OdVO! and separate divisions in ZAPOVO!

            And at 2.30 there is a command to OPEN FACTS !!))

            What do you think - if EVERYTHING had been woken up at 1.30 by the BATTLE alarm and packets would have been opened at 2.30 - would it somehow matter that at 22.00:XNUMX Stalin would not have allowed to enter the PP yet ??)))

          Perhaps you should not once again retell the tales that were imposed on your teeth. It is enough to read orders 00229 and 0052 PribOVO from June 15 and 19, 1941 to understand that everything possible has been done by the General Staff and, if you insist, Stalin, has been done. Colonel General P.P. puts everything at its place, in particular, the report (make the difference between the report of the performer and Zhukov's "memories") Poluboyarov Commission Pokrovsky (1953). Anticipating the question: why then ..., I will answer with prose - the numerical, fire and mechanized superiority of the Wehrmacht in the directions of its main strikes. There is not even 3: 1, but much more. To this it is worth adding gouging (some consider betrayal) the leadership of ZAPOVO. However, the latter were punished in hot pursuit.

    The position of the military leadership of the country to this Statement, as well as to everything else that was published by Pravda in Soviet times, is absolutely precisely stated. And at a later time, all sorts of political events, such as the Helsinki meeting or the signing of strategic offensive arms, did not in any way affect the performance of daily combat missions, unless some directive instructions were sent to the troops from the Minister of Defense. And if they acted, they usually consisted of common words - to increase, strengthen, achieve, etc.

    Did you want TASS to say that it’s time to “prepare tomahawks and go on the warpath” in order to provoke an German attack?
    The TASS statement of June 14th was indeed made in order to clarify the position of the German leadership. After it became known that Hess had flown to England.
    And it should not have any relaxing effect on the army. The army should always be ready for reflection, and it should not respond to any statements, except direct directives.
    A directive to all military districts and fleets on putting troops on combat alert was given on June 18, 1941. So do not put a shadow on the wattle fence.

        Firstly, I want to remind you that the First World War began with a provocation - a shot at Sarajevo, for Russia the German war also began with a provocation - mobilization. And the Second World War began with a provocation - the defeat by the Germans of their own radio station, dressed as criminals in Polish uniform.

        Secondly, the further fate of the USSR then depended on a factor: who will attack anyone? We were not going to attack, but they could have made us aggressors artificially. And if Stalin “went on the warpath,” then the anti-Hitler coalition might not have existed.

    Thank you Eugene for an interesting article ... it would be nice to supplement it with an article how information was collected by transcendental intelligence and specific names of intelligence officers and intelligence units. hi
    I already said once that before the start of the war the Germans managed to confuse our command with their actions to misinform the enemy .. the further course of events after June 22, 1941 clearly showed the unavailability of the Red Army operational command, with rare exceptions, to repel the Wehrmacht’s strike ... contradictory orders to repulse and the attack on the enemy headquarters of the Red Army indicate the lack of command by the commanders of information about the real balance of forces in the main directions of the Hitlerite strike.
    I look forward to continuing the cycle of such articles ... a lot of details ... very interesting for thought.

      And the fact that they slip you a linden does not bother you?
      Do you even pay attention to the cards or clippings from them - you will not find on anyone whose card this is, who developed it, and how much you can trust it, because even at the district headquarters, all the heads of the services of the card are different and may not reflect the details about the enemy.
      For example, this false researcher states:
      Comrade, there are maps with German intelligence data. Only they are limited to the end of May 1941 and reappear only after the war. As with the intelligence reports of the General Staff of the Spacecraft ...

      If this is a map of GERMAN reconnaissance, then parts of the Wehrmacht cannot be printed there in detail — the map of the reconnaissance chief reflects only the general configuration of his troops, and only the positions of reconnaissance units on it are reflected in detail. It was from such mistakes that all his articles were created, but you are apparently not able to understand this. I'm not saying that all his speculation revolves around Intelligence Report No. 5, about which he said that these were supposedly the latest intelligence materials before the war. Although any literate person will find intelligence reports from June 21 and earlier, they are on the network, because intelligence reports are compiled in peacetime EVERYDAY, and they are reported to the country's top military leadership. Already on the basis of this, you can throw all his fantasies into the bin. Like his example with a map of the Reserve Front, created in September 1941 with the situation applied, any military specialist understands that the data on this map was not received by the front itself, but transmitted from other structures, because reconnaissance of this front could not fully conduct it. But it is noteworthy that he gives our details, but he is afraid to refer to foreign cards under a ridiculous pretext:
      I apologize, but if you put them earlier, it will be uninteresting to read. Yes, and these materials can be used by those who write faster than me ... I will give a few fragments of maps.

      I think that the reason is different - judging by one of the cards, it was made not before the war, but much later, and apparently specifically for the author, justifying the defeat of Germany.

    The absence of large headquarters at the border was likely to indicate that war was not expected in the near future. So they had to think in the higher echelons of spacecraft control. This point of view was reinforced by the absence at the border of a significant number of troops (according to intelligence), concentrated on the territory of East Prussia and former Poland.


    Protest!
    Firstly, the author draws conclusions for our command, attributing to our leadership a methodology of thinking invented by himself (the author).
    Secondly, the lack of information about the deployment of headquarters is not identical to their absence in principle. The presence of large divisions at the border automatically indicates the presence of higher-level headquarters over them. Such a conclusion will be made by any competent military man, and even more so, a military historian should know this.
    Thirdly, the author’s claim about the absence of a significant number of German troops is not clear, while intelligence until the last day reported on the concentration of Wehrmacht troops near the border.

    Only the German command needed information on the deployment of troops, headquarters and mechanized groups. As an example, below is a fragment of a German map with intelligence information about our troops.


    For the Germans, this information was more important because they were planning an offensive operation. And the disorganization of the enemy’s controls is one of the important tasks coming.
    For various reasons, we could not fully reveal the detailed location of the Wehrmacht controls. There are objective circumstances for this:
    it’s always more difficult to find a headquarters than a combat unit;
    it’s even more difficult to find out the level of headquarters (corps, army), and the attitude to a certain type of troops;
    uneven agent density on the other side.

    The two fragments of the German map below show that by the start of the war large headquarters of all levels moved closer to the border. The problem was that all our intelligence services did not record the movement of these headquarters.


    This is quite natural, the author himself writes about the time delay when transmitting intelligence information. Given that the headquarters of the corps and armies began moving several days before the outbreak of war, there is no blame for intelligence.

The main (supposedly) for our command was the number of enemy divisions", - such as information about the deployment of 200+ enemy divisions near the border, this is complete garbage, the main thing is where it has the brain of the corps, army and group levels (on the Atlantic coast, of course) laughing

      You correctly noticed that heresy that the author of statistics on the work of intelligence on the eve of the war has been carrying for many months. Naturally, it is more important for our command to know FIRST of all precisely the composition of the enemy’s combat potential, and not the command structure of these forces, which is why intelligence threw all its forces into identifying the presence of Wehrmacht connections at our borders in 1941 in order to understand the intentions of the enemy. No one denies that it is desirable to know where the headquarters are, but they themselves do not go into battle, and cannot pose a serious danger to our cover units. But the author of these fantasies is so far from a real understanding of military affairs that he imagined what data the intelligence MUST present in 1941, and on the basis of his stupid conclusions he decided to evaluate its effectiveness. Although any competent person understands that if Golikov was not punished after June 22, but on the contrary entrusted to work at a higher level, as a representative of the government of the country at the most important negotiations, it means that he coped with the duties of the head of the RU
      GS in the pre-war period.

          The structure of the concentration of enemy forces must be known in two possible scenarios: the first is what you have designated ("reveal the intentions of the attack on us"); the second - to deliver the correct preemptive strike by ourselves, as Vatutin actually formulated in the latest edition of the Plan of Considerations ..., that is, to "preempt the enemy in deploying forces" to strike first.

            After the Great Patriotic War, for almost fifty years, we had deployed and concentrated five armies of ground forces and one air force in the Northern Fleet, conducted active reconnaissance in all directions, and for some reason during this time, even during the exercises, we did not work out the attack first - how it fits with yours " scenarios, "if the NATO group stood stronger against us than the Wehrmacht in 1941?

If you also think so, then it hardly makes sense to explain something to you based on the text of the Directive b / n, where, on the basis of the intelligence, the EXACT date of the attack on the USSR was June 22-23. And the approximate grouping of German troops on June 1 was brought to the entire highest military command of the USSR in the form of MONTHLY intelligence number 5 for the month of May. What intelligence information do you still need to evaluate what our commanders will have to face in the event of a war?

    Thesis. At the beginning of the Second World War two points should be remembered: 1) The spacecraft was not preparing to repel aggression; 2) All our intentions in the upcoming campaign considered only one form of influence on the enemy: SUDDEN ATTACK, which would begin the so-called “border echelon”, including directions, calendar dates and forces involved. The word "cover" should not introduce anyone into discussions about strategic defense measures - there were none in our plans for war! Obviously, the picture of the concentration of enemy forces was more interesting to us than the location of its headquarters. By the way, in 1939 the plans of the Polish General Staff of the war with Germany also considered a line of surprise attack, and not an echeloned defense against an aggressor attack. Including, we have nothing to be shy here!

        And what are the "objections"? The actions of the cover echelon suggested both types of warfare. On threatened areas (on the flanks of the advancing troops) - defense (but not strategic!), Even with the use of SD-s.

            I’ll consider that I really didn’t “understand”, and not “play the fool” ... A reflection of aggression involves the creation of a layered defense in the alleged areas of enemy attacks (remember the preparations for the Battle of Kursk - a vivid example of strategic deliberate defense), the evacuation of the population, values ​​(including factories, warehouses, museums, etc. in the pre-war period), support bands, mining of roads and bridges, the creation of hidden bases for the deployment of partisan and sabotage activities in the alleged rear of the enemy, the creation of war reserves in the depths of the defended territory and the corresponding structure of the location of forces and means, armament and training of troops according to the nature of defense tasks, etc. Compare the map of the German-Polish border of 1939 and those cited by the author of this article.

              Therefore, I wrote that I “slightly object”, that we were not preparing for the defense.

I have not seen a more fundamental and frank study of the issue of our readiness for war among historians. The section "Soviet military planning" is especially interesting: this is where explanations are given of what should be understood by the terms "cover forces" and "active defense". The options of our plans for waging war with Germany and its allies in the European theater are analyzed in detail: North, North-West, West, South-West, South versions of this plan. The development began on September 29, 1939 and took its final form in mid-June 1941, moreover, the deployment of troops corresponded to the option chosen according to the results of the headquarters games of January 1941 (the South-Western version of our strike with the forces of the "cover echelon"). In general, read - everything is available.

      In the summer of 1941, "thanks to" the organizational itch of the General Staff, the Red Army was absolutely not ready for hostilities.

          They did not do this either. And they parked the parks and covered them with barbed wire.
          I am an officer in the past, and assessing the scale of organizational activities of that time, I unequivocally declare that the BP was completely absent.
          The nature of the hostilities in 1941 (when the number of prisoners was six months or 40% of the total during the war years) shows that the bosses didn’t miss (in 1942 they made no less than them, and there were less losses of this plan for the year), but the absence of platoons, mouth , and battalions, as combat units and collectives (and which, with a mild blow, crumbled).
          As soon as the Siberian divisions appeared (and these formations were not less than 3-4 training), an offensive near Moscow occurred.

          Judge for yourself. Well, the troops of the first operational echelon of the front were defeated. 3-5% of the Red Army’s equipment is lost. but then there is no further surprise. The second strategic echelons arrived, and the same thing was a rout. with a huge number of prisoners.

          As an example, I will give the actions of 316 SD (8 gv.sd). 1073 joint venture after leaving Volokolamsk. was replenished by 50% (already much washed out, the original composition). 1 battalion (Momysh-Uly) only 30%. After the advance of November 16.11.41, 250, 3 people remained from the regiment. Momysh-ula didn’t move away (he held the defense according to the order for 600 days) and then brought out more than 60 people (there were strangers there) with the wounded. having lost up to 70 fighters. He and the regiment commander were appointed (senior lieutenant, just like that).

          And the division itself, after 3 months after the formation, held the front for 42 km and retreated only 15 km. And already behind Volokolamsk (after replenishment), it held a front of 16 km, and then retreated to 50 km (of course, this is not only the fault of the division, but anyway the combat efficiency dropped sharply ..

            The combat training of the troops was manifested at Halkin-Gol, in the Polish campaign of 39, in the “winter” war with Finland, in the lightning-fast Bessarabian operation. And the first days of the Second World War showed the ability of front-line troops to seize and hold bridgeheads at the border. Blind counterattacks of the spacecraft in the conditions of a really unexpected attack of the enemy are the subject of proceedings. Such a small nuance as the complete absence of topographic maps of one’s own territory does not contribute to the successful operations of the troops in defense in any way. "Siberian divisions," you say? In what place in Siberia were they located? 40 divisions is a noticeable force ... Divisions were withdrawn from the Far Eastern Front, having carried out a whole operation to misinform the Japanese. These were the same personnel personnel spacecraft. Poorly trained personnel for defensive operations - I agree, the rest is very controversial. The enemy acted very inventively and rationally - the amount of forces at his disposal obliged to this. What was not particularly observed in our actions in the conditions of vast territories and resources.

                “General Apanasenko played an extremely important role in strengthening the defenses of the Far East during the critical months of the war. The famous Soviet song about the war contains the words“ Siberians saved Moscow. ”At critical moments of the battle for Moscow, divisions with combat experience in battles were transferred on Khasan and Khalkhin-Gol. From June 1941 to July 1942 he sent 22 divisions from the Far East to the army. Apanasenko manned the bare front with imprisoned servicemen from the Gulag, including from Kolyma camps.
                Berlin, demanding that Tokyo begin military operations in Manchuria, informed Japan of the deployed divisions. But Japanese intelligence did not detect the redeployment of troops. As General Pyotr Grigorenko wrote: “... during the first year of the war, there was a serious skirmish between the Japanese and Germans. German intelligence claimed that the Soviets "from under the nose" of the Japanese withdraw the divisions and transfer them to the West. Japanese intelligence insisted that not a single Soviet division left its places of deployment. It is hard to imagine how events would unfold in the Far East if a human executor commanded there. He would send all the troops, as Moscow had demanded, and would not have formed anything, since unauthorized formations are strictly prohibited. One remaining division, three army headquarters and one front headquarters, even with border guards, not only defend, but also observe the vast extent of the border of the Far East. Apanasenko showed the state mind and great courage in this matter. ”
                In late autumn 1941, the first ten Far Eastern divisions, along with a thousand tanks and aircraft, were deployed along the Trans-Siberian Railway to Moscow. Many Siberians in the late fall of the forty-first year witnessed a fantastic spectacle [2]. Along the Trans-Siberian Railway, picking up whirlwinds of snow and locomotive dust, military echelons swept west from the Far East with double traction and courier speed. On separate stages, the oncoming traffic was blocked and the hurricane of echelons, accompanied by an incessant hum, intensified the unreality of what was happening. One by one, within sight, the Far Eastern military units, staffed by military personnel, were in a hurry to help Moscow. "(See: https://dergachev-va.livejournal.com/94665.html)

                  There would be a corresponding B.P. before the war, the Germans would begin to fight with the Red Army level of 42 with combat platoons, companies and battalions. although with shitty (yet) commanders of regiments, divisions, and to commanding fronts. And most importantly, without losses in 1941.

                    It would be foolish to say that it would be “stupid,” but the spacecraft was “sharpened” for actions outside its territory, and the enemy imposed a completely different story with his attack ... My father didn’t get tired of repeating in life: war. Just as were ready! " Participant of the Second World War "from call to call". "Not long before the war, regular trips to the very border (with Romania) with the aim of reconnaissance on the ground: where it is better to organize firing positions for artillery on the other side." "In the very first days of the battle, they seized a bridgehead on the other side of the border and held it until a withdrawal order was received." Here are just a couple of points from the stories of my war veteran.

                      You won’t believe it, but the SA of my time was sharpened in the same way (the solution of the defense problem is a decisive attack, until the enemy is completely defeated.) And only this way (the attack is the main type of database. Moreover, in the 70s and until the 90s we had tremendous superiority. but the war did not start.

                      But talking about the lack of training in defensive combat in the Red Army causes a smirk to any professional.
                      This statement was born when some historians decided. that they can become strategists.
                      What is the point? When the tank brigades and military personnel in the MK were taken from SK and SD. Rifle corps are already extremely weakened for defensive operations (there is no strike nucleus for counterattacks, and cover for retreat - all this is according to the Combat Charter of 1939 ..). AND
                      here MK is an unambiguous machine for the offensive. And immediately the conclusion with a clever look - "we did not prepare the troops to conduct defensive actions." And we really got into the war problems in the defense because of this. MK disbanded. But already for conducting offensive operations near Moscow, the need naturally arose for these formations. and at the beginning of 1942 they began to form again (though. they were already slightly different TCs.)

                      And so, after filling MK equipment (although 30 MK is higher than my understanding and understanding0, both SK and divisions should have tanks (no one canceled the charter at that time. Because any attack always involves a transition to defense by all the rules.

And they torn off the OShs at them (but inattentively). Generally wise. (And MK we already had. Early 30s). But they created a hard-to-control monster for a thousand tanks.

By the way, then they were abolished for the first time. Now many believe that this was a major mistake. So what ? Before the Nazi attack they again restored - the war showed "the same rake"! In any case, all these blunders of the organizational order to consider the inability to fight - too far-fetched reason. Not brilliant, but they could fight. Who else in the world had so many armada of armored vehicles?

                        Doctors say there is no poison or medicine, there are quantities.
                        So it is here. Yes. knowing how the events of 1941 unfolded, it was better not to create MK. Then the durability of our SC would significantly increase. We had TD for tank counterattacks. Naturally for the offensive, and MK is designed to enter the breakthrough after the defeat of the corps reserves, TD will not be enough. But by any measure, the organizational itch of our generals would lead to the creation of mechanized
                        divisions (2 joint ventures + 1 TP). The structure is excellent, but at least 100 such divisions would be created immediately (corps TBRs were disbanded into battalions that needed to turn into regiments). And these are the same Faberge. as MK. The same BP failure. One advantage. they would not have perished so quickly (and stupidly) as MK.

                        I know how to do it, but it's not fair. This is afterglow, with appropriate education.

                        I rely on what, if you created a structure, check how it works. A year has been for it. If (after all they could) having driven MK, he would immediately notice that TP is not capable of performing raid tasks. It came to war, it would have reached landfills. And then the structure known to us would appear (it appeared in real life as well). TP-3 battalion, with 3 tank platoons. All. TP - 94-96 tanks. (like now). MK has 5 TP - about 475 main tanks + 120 combat support tanks. Total 600 tanks, and not more than a thousand. And instead of 20 TB, only 15. And not even 30 MK (by the way, Meretskov at the meeting in March, although he objected weakly).
                        But unfortunately the increase in the number of formations (and swift), was the mania of our generals. Hence, there is no quality of troops.

                This question is controversial, because the main reason was the huge losses of armored vehicles and the lack of the required amount of fuel and tankers so that rational use of mechanized corps could be organized.

            I don’t know your level of military education, but I’ll ask you a question about your thesis - how did you plan to launch an offensive outside our territory if all of our long-distance wired communications were provided by the People’s Commissariat of Communications (civil organization) without its own nodes abroad, and when radio communications organizations have dead zones after 50 km and up to 90. How are you going to manage a huge mass of troops, if we didn’t have field long-distance communications equipment at all, but there was a radio phobia even at the level of command of formations?
            So what about our general readiness for war cannot be judged by the recruits of the front-line soldier - one must at least understand at what level all our armed forces were in order to conclude whether we could fight in foreign territories or not.

              This question should have been asked to "Marshal of Victory." He was the Chief of the General Staff, he had to take care of communications and brilliantly anticipate the problems of a future war, seek the introduction of advanced means of communication, convince the leadership of the country and subordinates in this, right? And so, as always with Zhukov, someone is to blame for something, but not him. Here is a typical explanation: "At the beginning of the war, some of the combined arms commanders overestimated the wired connection and did not always believe in radio. Such an attitude to radio communication at the beginning of the war received a very accurate definition -" radio fear ". Unfortunately, this" disease "in 1941-1942 Many commanders and staff officers of rifle units and formations suffered during the years, even front-line officers continued to regard the telephone as the main means of communication for a long time after the outbreak of war, and a broken line often amounted to a loss of communication with subordinate troops. Radiocommunication in the Red Army was far from being fully utilized, although radio-phobia was not observed in aviation, in armored and mechanized forces, and also in the Navy. commanders and commanders. no matter the front commander or army commander, a personal radio station should always be with him. Together with the radio operators, the officer of the operational department and the encryption officer must have been at the radio station. This decision was very important and played a large role in improving troop control. And already in the second half of the war, cases of underestimating radio communications or the misuse of various means of communication were rare. "But there were radio stations in the troops. As they say here. Is it enough or not - the question is all the same to the Chief ... The Germans did not have winter lubrication , warm uniforms for the campaign against the USSR, banal motor resources of armored vehicles for such distances, and much more, but they fought quite successfully ... Nobody wants to talk about the readiness / unpreparedness of the Wehrmacht, but the KA was no good!

              I don’t know what the roots of your claims to Marshal Zhukov are, but in this case you simply don’t know that until March 1941 the communications department was not subordinate to the NSS, but was an independent structure of the people's commissariat of defense on the basis of control, i.e. Zhukov was simply unable to fix anything. Especially when you consider that the People’s Commissariat of Defense didn’t have its own landline or field wired communication system. And what could Zhukov have foreseen if he took the first significant post in the armed forces in the summer of 1940, becoming the commander of the district. I think that your claims to him are not entirely justified, at least from the understanding that upstarts do not have authority in the military environment until they prove their superiority over the others. When, in your opinion, could Zhukov do this if he was only a half-year non-vocational school before the start of the war?

              Of all the above, only the fleet had the most trained radio communications specialists, but this is due to the fact that there is no other connection with the ships. As for airplanes and armored vehicles, it is better for you not to remember this - everything was sadder there than you might think. It may be a great discovery for you that in cavalry divisions radio stations were transported on carts at the beginning of the war, and this says a lot to experts.

But if we could make the army better, the question is very complicated, given the fact that industrialization was taking place in the country, and we were saving on the army, which is why we were not ready for the war in 1941.

              To this can be added the general level of education of the population of the two countries, as well as the technological superiority of Germany, which received not only loans for the development of industry, but also advanced American technologies of those years. Even in communications technology, they were so far ahead of us that already during the war they used radio relay stations (cryptographic equipment, short- and medium-range missiles, jet aircraft, radar stations, submarines, etc.) that we had in 1950 :
              Work on the creation of mobile radio-relay lines for military use was launched in Germany in the late 1930s and in the United States just before the outbreak of World War II. Several modifications of American stations were developed, but nothing is known about their use on the fronts.
              We had to face the first German military radio relay stations during the Great Patriotic War. Meter stations were called “Michael” (DMG-5A, DMG-7A) and provided single-channel or two-channel communication up to 150 km with a single interval length of up to 40-50 km. At the end of the war, Rudolph and Stuttgart radio relay stations appeared. Our experts carefully studied the captured equipment, conducted a number of studies on the creation of more advanced radio-relay equipment for the Soviet Army, and already in recent war years, a sample of the domestic Comet radio-relay line “Comet” was tested on the Western Front.
              The highest army leadership recognized the prospect of using radio-relay communication lines in almost all military command and control links, and immediately after the war, in early 1946, work began on creating radio lines with pulse modulation “Rubin” and “Disk”. Both works were later combined and received the name “Disk Rubin”. The stations were commissioned under the index P-400 in 1950.

              I think that these are ordinary verbiage, with a couple of years of military service behind them and no more, because they do not know what it means to train personnel, and after what time a civilian becomes a soldier. They will never understand why in Germany the educational process is much easier to organize and get better results in training military personnel than ours - they simply never bother with this, which is why they carry nonsense about preparing the Wehrmacht and the Red Army on the eve of World War II.

      "Bike" in what? What near Moscow entered the battle of the Far Eastern divisions? Yes, probably, the part numbers did not correspond to their Trans-Baikal values. But where did the forces for counterattack come from then? All reserves by that time were exhausted. There were no noticeable troops in Siberia - the "Siberian divisions", indeed, were a Soviet-era bike.

        From June 1941 to July 1942 from the Far East he sent 22 divisions to the army. ....
        One remaining division, three army headquarters and one front headquarters, even with border guards, not only defend, but also observe the vast extent of the border of the Far East. Apanasenko showed the state mind and great courage in this matter


        This bike is about one division. Yes, and to see about the camps, too.

        22 divisions are redeployed in stages throughout the year.
        With the composition of the troops of the Far Eastern Front in 23 divisions, one division could not stay there. Considering that about 41 divisions were transferred to the West in the fall of the 7st, at least a dozen should remain in the Far East. In the locations of the departed divisions, a new replenishment was carried out. For several months, new divisions were being prepared, and so on.


        And about the rushing trains generally keep quiet.

        On separate stages, the oncoming traffic was blocked and the hurricane of echelons, accompanied by an incessant hum, intensified the unreality of what was happening.

          There are authors who write stories, mixing truth and falsehood. And to make such stories attractive, they add all sorts of sauce, spices, etc.
          If the whole story were true to the end, then poetry would be appropriate.

    Some “historians” often use memoirs instead of facts, extolling details and not seeing the whole picture. By the way, my father back in 1939 was sent to the Pacific Fleet with his entire graduation from the Perm School, and stayed there the whole war, although their regiment of naval aviation completely landed three times in echelons with equipment and weapons, and they waited a day or a little more, and Then an order came to cancel the dispatch - he himself told me that. Moreover, the pilots were the most worried - they were eager for war, but no one let them go, and only in the war against Japan did they participate. Although of course this is also just a small touch to understand the events of that time, and where the reserves came from.

    And then, under Khrushchov, they picked up the thesis about surprise and opposition to the deployment of Stalin
    It’s interesting how Khrushchev himself describes the pre-war days.
    I saw that there was nothing for me to do in Moscow, and Stalin did not let me go because he was afraid of loneliness, he wanted as many people as possible around him. Finally, on Friday, June 20, I turned to him: "Comrade Stalin, I have to go. The war is about to begin and may catch me in Moscow or on the way." I pay attention "on the road", and go from Moscow to Kiev one night. He says: "Yes, yes, that's right. Drive." I immediately took advantage of Stalin’s consent and left for Kiev. I left on Friday and was already in Kiev on Saturday. This suggests that Stalin understood that the war was about to begin. Therefore, he agreed that I should leave and be in place, in Kiev at the time the war began. What reasoning can there be about a surprise attack? For whom and in the name of what is this version now created and strengthened? It is only necessary to justify itself. These authors themselves are responsible.
    If all the husk is removed, the dry sediment remains that Khrushchov and Stalin knew for sure that the war would begin on June 22, 1941. Not the fact that in the morning of 22.06.1941/22.06.1941/XNUMX, but it was XNUMX/XNUMX/XNUMX.

    Firstly, the author draws conclusions for our command, attributing to our leadership a methodology of thinking invented by himself (the author).
    Secondly, the lack of information about the deployment of headquarters is not identical to their absence in principle. The presence of large divisions at the border automatically indicates the presence of higher-level headquarters over them. Such a conclusion will be made by any competent military man, and even more so, a military historian should know this.

    In the summer of 1941, "thanks to" the organizational itch of the General Staff, the Red Army was absolutely not ready for hostilities.

          The truth, to some extent, was reflected in the articles of Eugene ...
          Among critics, something is not a refutation of the facts in a numerical, so to speak, reflection. For example, since the fall of last year, you threatened to refute something there.
          I participated in the discussion then and saw that everything was clarified by Eugene, and you wrote something unreasonable there ... And you won’t refute everything ... Can't you?

          Now they ranked themselves, Kozinkin and Milchakov, as a proud constellation of the military, which everyone knows ... So tell me the lieutenant colonel that you discovered Evil. Maybe I also laugh, but not hysterically ...

          For now I can only shake my head in bewilderment. Well, what are these three arrogant or stupid.
          One of them, the great couch theorist, cannot figure out the cards. Well, he did not work with them in the service, but so verbose something is broadcasting stupid ... He does not need to read the article carefully ...

          Another quotes only quotes. A sort of walking quote from Mao ... He constantly says that the location of the headquarters of the corps, armies and army groups is not important. It does not matter the presence of motorized corps of tank groups ...
          How did he get such a thought in his head, he himself does not know. He cannot cite a quote from the memoirs of the military that these headquarters did not interest them.
          Yes, none of the military commanders will say such stupidity and drunkenly .... And Kozinkin can. He writes not such nonsense in his science fiction ...

          The third of the military couch’s couch thoughtfully broadcasts something there, but how does Kozinkin have no facts ... Few know ... Have you even found and read Sergei Chekunov’s two-volume?

          The opinion of such a military is of no interest to the site. They should be in the service more interested in military affairs and the classics of military theory. And so they turned from the former military into an ugly trinity of sofa experts ... At which everyone laughs and do not accept their words ...

            If you didn’t notice from my comments, my claims to Eugene are not so much in the factology on which he relies, but on the conclusions he draws.

            Yes, it’s hard for me to object to Golikov’s statement about 288-296 divisions. I honestly counted all the divisions in German sources and reached the same figure as that of Muller-Hillebrand, about 210 divisions. But neither I nor Eugene know which sources Golikov relied on. Perhaps he meant the additional armed forces of Finland and Romania. If you include them in the calculation, you get a similar figure.
            And only Eugene allows himself to draw the "right" conclusions.

            None of us can, neither Eugene, nor you, nor as you put it couch experts, clearly judge where there was a lack of intelligence data, and where there was misinformation.
            No one will say that.
            And only, you see, Eugene is sure that all the inaccuracy of intelligence is a consequence of German misinformation.

            I am silent about the fact that he has data corruption.
            For example, Belov's fake memories, to which he could not argue anything, but only sent me to hell.
            Or the false message of Mars dated May 15, 1941.

            Eugene to a certain extent, the continuer of the author’s case in Victoria about the first days of the war. I don’t know if they work together.
            Well, she found a link to the memoirs of the division commander, who disappeared without 23.06.41.

            The audience of such authors is a reader who does not understand the topic, and takes everything on faith.

              In this case, the discrepancy is due to the methodology for assessing the military potential of Germany on June 22. Muller-Gillebrand counts the actual number of divisions deployed on the eve of the war in full staff, i.e. what military people say is “standing under arms”. Military intelligence materials are required to include not only those divisions that have already been deployed, but also those that will appear in the coming months, which will go to make up for losses - this is required by the Operational Department so that they have the opportunity to make decisions taking into account the enemy’s mobilization reserve. I cite once again a scan of a document on how the RU’s capabilities in Germany were taken into account in 1939 (before the WWII), and even then the total potential was estimated at 180 divisions:

            Well, what about the lieutenant colonel, it’s sad, but you have to haul you with a face, since you climbed to teach those who understand you more in military affairs.
            So, the author presents a fragment of the map and writes:
            As an example, below is a fragment of a German map with intelligence information about our troops.

            The map is dated May 20, 1941, and there is not a single Wehrmacht unit on it — how can it be used as evidence that our intelligence has not been taken into account, especially since the map is not clear when it was drawn up and to whom it belongs. No way, but you won’t understand this, because you have not gone far from the author of the article, not to mention that there are no Wehrmacht parts on it, which is already suspicious for those who look at another map where these parts are plotted:
            The two fragments of the German map below show that by the start of the war large headquarters of all levels moved closer to the border. The problem was that all our intelligence services did not record the movement of these headquarters.

            So can you explain why such a difference in the design of the cards? Not only that, and these fragments do not carry information who made these cards, when and at what time the situation is plotted, and there is no data where they performed, which already says a lot. I do not exclude that it was compiled after the war for some memoirs - these two cards differ too much.
            Well and further the author gives the third card with the words:
            Later, when intelligence data became more complete, not only German divisions began to appear on the maps of our army headquarters headquarters and fronts of the General Staff, but their affiliation with the corps (armies) was also indicated. Famous locations of large German headquarters began to be applied to maps.

            Moreover, this amateur cites the September map of the Reserve Front, and judges from it that before the war we had no cards with the situation. In this lie, you lieutenant colonel, believed that he said once again that your knowledge was not far removed from the knowledge of this dreamer, if only because the intelligence report of the intelligence chief of any level is PRESENTED with the applied situation, and this is a fact that amateurs do not know about. To disprove the lies of both of you, I present a simplified diagram of the deployment of German troops from the famous book, which was compiled on the basis of the map that was attached to Bulletin No. 5:

          The most important thing is that professionals, reading his opuses, immediately see that the king is naked, and so that he does not drag here, it is immediately clear that he is not at all in the subject. By the way, I studied a lot of different versions about why we suffered heavy losses in the first weeks of the war, but not one of the researchers stated that it was precisely because of the lack of clutter about the Wehrmacht in the General Staff and at district headquarters. In general, the new version of the next amateur in military affairs is so unique that I can not find at least the predecessors of this nonsense to understand where he ripped it off. I think you correctly noticed - we will soon come to new "discoveries" of this silk operator, indicating that intelligence has not opened all the Wehrmacht battalions.

              How else can a teacher-level person speak with an elementary school student who is trying to prove something inarticulate!
              For example, you have already written more than once about Evgeny’s lies about the words of General Belov.
              But Eugene correctly pointed to the low level of your knowledge about the initial period of the war. At the beginning of the article (in the part where he wrote to you) there is a link to parts of the Victoria cycle, which lists all the statements of the divisional commander regarding General Pokrovsky’s questions that were near the border. And you not only did not look at the material from the link - this is not a nobleman’s business. I already know everything ...
              But even when I wrote to you about the two-volume S.L. Chekunov You did not understand that you do not know much ...
              The same self-confident person as Milchakov. Similar people are attracted to each other.
              Well, if you don’t want to flip through hundreds of thousands of documents on the website “People’s Memory”, then read the series “Unexpected War ...”, which contains almost all the information on the eve of the war on documents and up to 70-80% of the memoirs of war veterans. You are not going to do this!
              Only hysterical laughter ... It's a pity not for my low level of awareness ...

              I personally read Victoria’s cycle three times and now I am free to navigate in the materials and immediately see the stupidity of Yevgeny’s opponents ... And most importantly, you have such a hasty know-it-all behavior. I’m watching that you wrote a question to Eugene about the settlement “Rymachi”. You looked for it in the computer - it is easy to do. But to read a fragment in Boltunov’s book is already laziness ... And it says that on the eve of the war the radio station was relocated to the territory of KOVO. He had to return to the territory of the okrug (which had already become a front) only at the beginning of July 1941. And here one should not look for the mythical mistakes of Eugene, but simply increase his awareness and level of awareness !!!

                And knowing in what circumstances they answered these questions, it’s clear to me, that’s why some didn’t answer at all, and many referred to forgetfulness. So what did you find there, along with Madame, that should have surprised me?

            You’re lying, as always, because in the first place the maps are not completely presented, without indicating when they were drawn up and to whom they belonged. Secondly, the latest map was made a month before the start of the war, i.e. in May, and to judge her that our intelligence knew about the enemy on the eve of June 22 can only amateurs, like Madame. Moreover, in the operational department, each officer has cards, so it is important to know who the card belongs to - the head of the department or the dispatcher, whether it is working or prepared for the exercises.

        This lie is easily refuted if you carefully read what this verbiage writes:
        Insufficiently complete and unreliable RMs on the deployment of large German headquarters, probably, They are connected with counteracting the leak of information from the German command and carrying out mass misinformation of all possible sources of our intelligence.

        Firstly, earlier it was impudently lying that precisely because of the disinformation of the Germans, our intelligence could not reveal the composition of German troops on the eve of the war. When he was caught in ignorance, he immediately began to use the word "PROBABLY", like high-likly, by analogy with the Skripal case, i.e. the author signed in the complete absence of facts that our intelligence believed disinformation. And this is indeed so, because the composition of the German group was indicated absolutely precisely, with a discrepancy in the number of 1-2-3 divisions, according to various sources.
        Secondly, because Since the author of the articles is an absolute layman in the field of intelligence, he does not understand that on the eve of the war many German headquarters were in permanent deployment centers, and in the places of their deployment before the war only operational groups of several officers could be located - this is a common practice for all armies of the world. And this is primarily due to the fact that before time does not reveal the secret deployment area of ​​the headquarters of the corps, army, army group or front. So to send agents to search for headquarters in peacetime it can only come to the head of an ignoramus, if only because the headquarters columns are too small, and do not have distinctive signs by which to judge their affiliation, and are well guarded.
        I'm not talking about the fact that the headquarters column of a large headquarters can consist of several dozen cars, and until the Dortmund signal is received, it is generally located in a place of constant deployment and there is no way to move. So the author’s delusions that intelligence “probably” didn’t reveal something are built on his fantasies, for which amateurs like you are bought.
        For example, the author stated:
        The absence of large headquarters at the border was likely to indicate that war was not expected in the near future. So they had to think in the higher echelons of spacecraft control.

        On what grounds is he asserting this if Stalin had a meeting on June 21, and as a result of which a b / n Directive was issued? And the words, “you had to think so” once again shows that this layman does not understand what the commanders of that time thought, if only because Tymoshenko and Zhukov asked Stalin for permission long before June 21 to give permission to mobilize and deploy parts of the Red Army. This is how false researchers pervert our military history, and many readers have noticed it.

            Of course, if you want and carefully study the new materials that have opened, you can seriously analyze the intelligence of those years and make a competent analysis. But this requires basic knowledge, and the author of the articles does not have it from the word "in general." That is why, no matter how much he puffs up, nothing serious can come out from under his clave except lies and speculation. Poor people who believe in his "research" and thereby prove themselves completely ignorant of the issues of achieving military intelligence on the eve of the war. I will only say this - judging by the fact that there are no serious claims from all the participants of the war against Golikov, he organized the case at the right level, and our leadership had all the necessary materials about the enemy. Even now, studying the open documents of those years, one wonders how they could have obtained such a thing, knowing the level of intelligence resources of that time, and this is respected by professionals. Well, the opinion of different silk-screeners is hardly necessary to take into account - in our country there are all the "experts" in football, medical treatment and now military affairs ...

Units were built in a small parade ground adjacent to the forest. After the command, "quietly" Gromov came out of the grove, received a report and went around the line. Several times in mid-June 1941, the regiment commander personally organized and conducted marches with the withdrawal of military equipment, weapons, and rear supplies. This usually began with an alarm, followed by a regiment exit to the assembly area and a 10-15 kilometer march. Thus, the command of the regiment sought in a short time to carry out combat coordination of the unit. About a week before the war, the units of our unit were given ammunition, some of which were placed in motorcycles, while the rest were loaded onto cars. In the units and in the whole regiment, the internal guard duty was strengthened. Tension was felt in everything. On June 22, 1941, at about 5-6 o’clock in the morning, our regiment was alerted and organized, as it was during training, went into the concentration area in a pine forest, located 7-10 km from a permanent location. Units occupied the areas allotted to them, the commanders organized observation, and rear cars stretched along the road going from the location to the regiment's concentration area. Everyone thought that this was another training session, but even before the official announcement of the start of the war, everyone saw a German plane with black crosses in the air, probably a scout who made circles over the concentration center of our regiment. Heart tremble - war.
      About 10 hours on June 22, the company commander Tverdokhlebov announced the beginning of the warriors. There were no constructions. A meeting of platoon commanders took place, at which Tverdokhlebov set tasks for the protection and defense of the occupied area and disguise.

      It turns out that just before the service began, tension was felt before June 22, and the colonel did not expect anything - something is hard to believe in this.

    rebnev A.I. - commander of the 374th joint venture of the 128th SD. Volume 1, pp. 226-241.
    For an attempt to slip away from the source again - minus.

    And other commanders wrote OTHER - as they were informed on June 17 that the attack would be on June 20 and they took measures)))

      Well here, yes. We need to look at the total number of respondents and the proportion of those who answered in the spirit of Grebnev. It is no accident that Victoria stuck the memories of him in the initial part of the article so that the reader immediately formed the necessary attitude.
      Also later, Eugene refers to Belov in the introductory part of one of the articles and further unfolds his "idea" on this.

    I have neither one nor the other.
    What is available to me, I study.
