Czech newspaper: US troops in the Czech Republic rescued 650 horses that could end up in camping boilers of the Red Army

The Czech newspaper Aktualne distinguished itself by its noteworthy “historical"An opus. The material by Jan Gazdika talks about the "salvation" that the American troops carried out in Czechoslovakia in 1945.


The material contains a statement by Colonel Charles Hancock Reed, who commanded the 2nd Cavalry Group of the US Army. From the article:
US soldiers rescued 650 rare horses in the last days of World War II. They saved them, fearing that bad things could happen to these horses if they were in the hands of the Red Army.


The published material stated that the Americans "saved rare horses from Bohemia, because they were afraid that the Red Army would throw those into the cauldron."

The rest of the article tells how American troops, having landed in Normandy in 1944, marched through Europe and ended up in Germany and Czechoslovakia.

From the material:

Before American troops entered the territory of the Czech Republic, German veterinarians turned to soldiers of the US Army cavalry group with a request to save the horses. One of the veterans said that otherwise rare horses could end up in the cauldrons of field kitchens of the Red Army, as happened at a stud farm in Gradice near Torgau.

Apparently, in this place of the material the reader is invited to be touched by “the care of German veterinarians and American troops for animals.” The fact that the same veterinarians regularly served in Nazi formations that sent people to the oven is, of course, not mentioned in the material. There is no mention of how the “caring American army” had so far razed the German Dresden to the ground, leaving tens of thousands of civilians under burning rubble. And then all of a sudden both of them decided that it was time to save the horses from the Red Army ...

The author cites the statement of American Colonel Reed, which he made after the war:

We were so tired of war, death and destruction then that we wanted to do something beautiful.

To “save” the horses, the colonel singled out five tanks and a convoy of trucks. This technique was used "to break through the Nazi defensive order."

Among the "saved" were 250 animals from the Vienna Riding School, as well as the stallions of the Yugoslav King Peter and the Nazi Foreign Minister Ribbentrop. The total cost of 650 horses was allegedly $ 3 million (at the then exchange rate).

        Why, for some reason, my comment did not appear, I wrote that the Americans probably didn’t sell a single thoroughbred horse at an auction, they returned everything to the owners.

        Yes, the Red Army saved millions of European squirrels from falling into the hands of Americans. But look at you, one still fell into the hands of a colonel, and he gave it to a journalist .... In a word, you have to bite.

        and the young veterinarians didn’t write about the Auschwitz stoves? They feel sorry for the animals! and about the school of border dog breeding, along with dog handlers attacked the Wehrmacht infantry regiment, hand-to-hand, where were the Czechs? They brutalized everything. They have covered their conscience for SEVEN FIVE YEARS. cultural Europe

      I have two questions for the Czechs, what did the horses of the last king of Yugoslavia do in the Czech stables?
      Second, is this really the only libel you are capable of presenting to the Red Army?
      And finally, the Serbs should sue the descendants of the American colonel for robbing the horses of their former king! The Austrians should not be modest either !!!

        They stole horses so that their Soviet soldiers would not eat, what can you not read? To whom the war and to whom the replenishment of the budget. That is why they are a superpower, and all the rest are Hold'em. Mankind has not experienced such a thing yet, “Nazism” - do not tell, medicine is abruptly abrupt than any fascism-Nazism in the place taken.

      ... The procession was on the road for two days and went to the bridge, from which it was already close at hand to a safe area. But the bridge was barricaded by a group of armed people. These were Czech partisan communists loyal to the USSR.

      “You cannot take these horses out of Czechoslovakia,” the partisan commander said, pointing his machine gun at the convoy. Then, Felton writes, Lieutenant Bill Quinlivan appeared on horseback in front of the column, unbuttoning his holster along the way. “Quickly dismantle your barricades here,” he shouted menacingly. But the partisans did not obey him.

      Without getting off the saddle, Quinlivan waved in the direction of the armored personnel carrier, which noisily rolled forward and aimed the muzzle of the guns at the Czechs. He raised his hand and began to visually count to three. On the number “two” the nerves of the partisan detachment commander could not stand it. He missed the column ...
      Horses were not returned to the Czech Republic; General Patton ordered the animals to be returned to Austria.

    Great theme for blockbuster! "Salvation of the Ribbentrop Horse." For the surroundings, it is necessary to insert footage of the wild species of the Bolsheviks, savory devouring horse meat in Gradice. It is not clear why the horses themselves in horror did not run away from the Red Army? Really did not feel that something bad could happen to them. After all, the Bolsheviks can not only 2 million Germans ... that ... But they will not stop in front of horses ....
    But justice and civilization triumphed. The USA did not allow the irreparable to happen and again proved that they are rightfully considered the leader of the free world. The memory of saving horses will forever remain in our hearts.
    It bore me ... winked

      Livestock during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945
      Hitler’s invaders inflicted huge damage on the livestock industry of our country. In the regions of the RSFSR temporarily occupied by Nazi troops, the number of cattle decreased by 60% against the pre-war level, sheep and goats - by 70%, pigs - by 90%, horses - by 77%. In the Ukrainian SSR, the number of cattle decreased by 44%, sheep and goats - by 74%, pigs - by 89%, horses - by 70%. In the regions of the Byelorussian SSR, the number of cattle decreased by 69%, sheep and goats by 78%, pigs by 88%, and horses by 61%.

      The war caused great damage to livestock breeding. A significant number of pedigree cattle were driven into Nazi Germany and destroyed by the Nazis during the occupation.

      And the Czechs did not remember how many of our tribal ... appeared in the cauldrons of the Nazi troops and in the pots of German and Czech citizens when they forged weapons for these troops.

    Hmm, the Czechs are now ready to jump out of their skin just to show their loyal feelings to the United States and to spoil Russia.
    Yes, by the way, at the expense of the imaginary attempt to poison the figures who demolished the monument to Konev. The most important Czech intelligence officer said that his department did not have such information and does not have it.
    And yet, in the Czech Republic they were very indignant at the fact that in Chelyabinsk a monument was desecrated over the grave of the dead legionnaires. We immediately remembered the signed agreements and so on. etc...
    Of course, this case does not color us, but once again shows the duplicity of their modern leaders. The monument to Konev, like our other monuments, was moved or demolished from them with a reservation on the actions of the Soviet Army in 1968 ... and they thought to us who the Czech legionaries who died and buried here were for us?

    generally Slavs do not eat horse meat. But apparently the Czechs themselves do not belong to them. They have long been in the slaves of the Germans. This is clearly indicated by the complete lack of partisan movement in the Czech Republic during the years of WW2.

      Slavs eat horse meat, even as they eat. Especially dried! Although I think the direct road of those horses was to the breeding factories. Our grandfathers and great-grandfathers were not so simple. The horse at 45 played a big role both in the war and in agriculture!

        You exaggerate a little. The Slavs ate horse meat only in exceptional cases - either you will die of starvation, you will be left exhausted and the enemy will cut off your head, which is the same as you will die from hunger ... or you will be alive - so do not ...

    It would be interesting to know what happened to these horses after the "rescue" of their Americans? Is this written in the original article by a Czech propagandist? Or can we guess for ourselves what the culinary preferences of American soldiers were, and who got millions of dollars if these horses were not eaten?

                Pope Leopold von Sacher, the creator and director of the Lviv police, is from the Prague Sacher, but he was a Catholic, albeit from the Sephardim, there could be problems with Aliya.
                But Masoch is from his mother, daughter of the rector of the Lviv University, it was a well-known respected name in Lviv, steeper than Sacher, Papa Masokh was a famous doctor.
                And this one is just Franz Sacher, a Viennese pastry chef.


                But is there anything in common - you need to look at portraits. smile

          Phi is not about anything !!!
          If I’m not mistaken, Konev had 4 regiments of self-propelled artillery ISU-262 and ISU-122! Plus in the tank armies were the SU-100, SU-76M and SU-57! Plus towed artillery - a couple of dozen batteries of 122mm howitzers and 76mm guns! Plus, the BM-13 Guards Mortar Division! So the tank army of model 45 was still that steam rink !!!

        In fact, even a high-explosive shell of T-34 85mm tank guns, and even more so, the IS-2 122mm, will not seem enough. And 152mm self-propelled guns were carried, or 6 inches, such as the main caliber, not even a destroyer, but a cruiser, such a suitcase a brick house would turn into a pile of rubble.

    It is time for “pragafilm” together with Amer’s “naked wood” to remove the historical blockbuster “Save Pat Mare”, when American tankers having lost a bunch of people of Czech nationality (Amergiais do not die, because superheroes), save, from the hands of the evil Essayites - mare hate and hungry mares and wild Russian hordes, a mare at the cost of several dozen green lamas, in order to continue the happy life of a mare on a Texas ranch, which the mare dreamed of suffering in the dungeons of the Gestapo and survived thanks to a Czech guard. Well, along the way, the storyline is small - like three American tanks and a mare freed Prague))) And what, the main thing is not true, the main art is bright, good ... Oh Czechs, Czechs ...

They steadfastly kept all the siege winters, without water, electricity, under continuous shelling. They raved about food, and yet none of them even thought of eating at least a handful of grains in order to save their lives. And here are the horses laughing

    How many Europeans were saved by the Red Army by liberating Europe? How many American guys did the Red Army save by finishing off the fascist reptile, first alone, and then with every blow weakening the Wehrmacht’s capabilities in the West? And how many Europeans and Americans were saved by the Czechs ????? But how many Czechs were killed can probably be counted if you multiply the number of military equipment produced by hardworking Czechs by the approximate number of losses from fire of Czech tanks, self-propelled guns, guns, etc. in the ranks of the allies from North Africa to Norway, from Normandy to Stalingrad. Maybe it’s worth calculating, huh?

Some are white and fluffy, and at the same time they all forge weapons for the Nazis who want to cut 95-98% of Russians, while others liberate everyone and dirty and creepy want to breed horses as a species and eat all valuable breeds, and Auschwitz is by chance good labor camps for re-education of wild hordes in civilized directions.

    "Among the" saved "were 250 animals from the Vienna Riding School, as well as the stallions of the Yugoslav King Peter and the Nazi Foreign Minister Ribbentrop. The total cost of 650 horses was allegedly $ 3 million (at the then exchange rate)." That's it The main reason for American great-heartedness. The 1945 dollar and the modern buck are not just two, but ten big differences.
