Marshals of the USSR - Marshals of the Great Victory

44

On June 24, a parade dedicated to the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War will be held on Red Square in Moscow. The parade is notable for the fact that it is held against the backdrop of well-known problems with coronavirus infection, which made almost all countries of the world reconsider their attitude to reality. Russia was no exception.


The transferred Victory Parade is already attracting great attention. Especially in reference to how it was 75 years ago, when the banners of the defeated Nazi Germany flew to the foot of the Lenin Mausoleum. Now the Mausoleum is "for seven posters."

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense launched a large-scale documentary project “Eternal Patriotic”. One of his series tells about the legendary Soviet marshals who made a huge contribution to the victory. The plot also touches on preparations for the June 1945 parade - about the legendary horse riding of the marshal’s composition of the country of the Soviets.

The film is dedicated to the Marshals of Victory - George Zhukov and Konstantin Rokossovsky. These names to this day cause respect and awe. After all, these people didn’t just go through the most bloody stories mankind’s war, but they were also able to put a bright point in it - the point of the victors.

    The generals of 1941 ... the hardest year for the USSR ... those who went through this test are worthy of the highest praise.
    I have great respect for both Zhukov and Rokossovsky ... thanks to them for the conquered Victory over Nazi Germany. hi

      Yes, undoubtedly, these military leaders made a very significant contribution to the common cause of the people in breaking the ridge of Nazi Germany and, do not forget, its satellites, who gave Hitler around 1,5 million soldiers throughout the war to help Hitler.
      It's a pity that neither K.K. Rokossovsky nor G.K. Zhukov was allowed to tell the truth about the war ... It was not that time, however ... But the fragments of Rokossovsky's memoirs "Soldier's Duty" removed in Soviet times have now been published. many thoughts of G.K. Zhukov were made public thanks to K.M. Simonov and ... the bodies that followed the disgraced marshal.
      These small-scale testimonies of two authoritative commanders provide answers to many questions about the past war.

      1) They worked under the leadership of Generalissimo Stalin and under the control of Marshal Beria. 2) Why do you call the Victory "conquered"? 3) Of course, they would be pleased to know that you are still the same and treat them "with respect" (respect?).

    Historical joke:
    Beria reports to Stalin:
    - Comrade Stalin, Rokossovsky had a very beautiful lover. What we are going to do?..
    Stalin, lighting a pipe:
    - What to do, what to do ... Envy budem!

    Konstantin Rokossovsky is simply a genius commander. The defeat of the Germans at the Kursk Bulge was exclusively the result of his foresight, planning and leadership of the battle. And he would have taken Berlin with much less blood, but, as Stalin said, "Berlin should be taken by a commander with an exclusively Russian surname." Politics...

      Is this confirmed in any way, for example, in the memoirs of the eyewitnesses?
      Or folk tales, as well as taking cities to certain dates in the calendar?
      PS Replacing a surname with another in the USSR was not a big problem
      - Litvinov would confirm.

        Why tales? Because you didn’t find confirmation on the wiki? laughing
        If you have a desire, look further yourself, I will not do this for you. hi

      You hurried it lol
      On the Kursk Bulge, KK Rokossovsky commanded the troops of the Central Front, on the northern front, if you remember, and the Voronezh, Stepnoy, and Bryansk Fronts also took part in the battle.
      As for the capture of Berlin, the verbiage on this issue began even V.I. Chuykov in old age. Participants in the events answered him in the discussion, including Rokossovsky, no one supported Chuikov.
      Losses in the Berlin operation (70 thousand irretrievable) are divided into three fronts, Zhukov, Konev and Rokossovsky and are not extremely large given that the troops, especially the 1 Belorussian Front, had to destroy more than a million German troops in a continuous fortified area and a huge fortified city.
      KK Rokossovsky would undoubtedly manage in the place of the commander of the main front in this operation, which, moreover, he commanded until November 1944, but the speculation that, then, the losses of troops would have been less because a lot depends on the personality of the front commander, but not everything in the war. G.K.Zhukov himself for criticizing decisions himself K.K.Rokossovsky never criticized, he honestly pointed out the sometimes rude nature of G.K., lack of it, due to the prosthetic origin of education. But such shortcomings were not uncommon among Soviet military leaders and even party secretaries

        You hurried it

        With what and where?
        It was on the northern face that the Germans were stopped and rolled back. And in the South, German soldiers from "Greater Germany" and "Leibstandart" could not understand why they were ordered to retreat when they had not lost a single battle.
        Or do you think that the tank battle near Prokhorovka is a convincing victory for the Red Army? If so, then there’s nothing to talk about.
        And with regard to the smaller losses in the Berlin operation, I will say one thing: none of our commanders was so careful with their subordinates as K.K. Rokossovsky. I was familiar with two senior officers who served at different times at the headquarters of Rokossovsky, their opinions on him completely coincide, and I judge the marshal from their words, and not from wiki articles. By the way, both of these people worked in different headquarters during the war, different commanders and they had with whom, and with what to compare. hi

          You hurried up with the statement that the defeat of the Germans on Kursk was due to K.K. Rokossovsky, but he commanded only one section of this great battle, albeit successfully. In my personal opinion, he commanded better than N.F. Vatutin, but, I repeat, not only the Central Front took part in this battle.
          I hope that now you understand. As for the business and human qualities of Marshal Rokossovsky, I completely agree with you.

            Not at all. I am not a fan of alternatives. but if we imagine for a second that instead of Rokossovsky this front would be commanded by a man with Vatutin's "abilities", then the Germans would probably have occupied either Kursk, or Oryol, or both of these cities at once.

        You correctly described the situation, and if my memory serves me right, then the Central Committee had to intervene in this story in order to suppress the speculation that Berlin could be stepped on in February.
        Any mature person understands perfectly well that there will always be different opinions about historical events and their own role in them, which is why insults and rumors arise even among great people. It is simply pointless to compare Zhukov and Rokossovsky, given the fact that Stalin himself evaluated and decided who to appoint to which fronts. In my opinion, Rokossovsky was a more reserved person and looked more like officers of the tsarist army in behavior than Zhukov himself, whom many did not like precisely because of his manner of communicating with his subordinates. Yes, and the events of the beginning of the war spoiled Zhukov’s reputation, although he could hardly radically change our armed forces, not to mention his participation on the side of Khrushchov in the overthrow of Beria. In general, this topic will be discussed over and over again, although in principle everything is clear, and therefore it is simply ridiculous to settle scores.

    I can’t understand what bourgeois Russia has to do with Victory Day. After all, the victory was won by the country of the USSR, a socialist country under the control of the Communists. How can you take the victory for yourself without having a single side to it?

      And I can very much imagine ...
      Do you really think that only communists forged the Victory ... after all, the non-party and party and atheists and believers fought with the Nazis and their satellites ... all our people ... Without his support, there would have been no victory.
      Almost every family in the country had died or died on the battlefields of the Great Patriotic War ... this memory of the losses of their near and dear ones will be kept in the memory of our people for a long time ... I believe that it is from this point of view that the Great Victory of our people over the strongest enemy ... it was about the survival of our civilization in principle.

    These names to this day cause respect and awe. After all, it was these people who not only went through the most bloody war in the history of mankind, but were also able to put a bright point in it - the point of winners ...


    Like a film about G. Zhukov.
    K. Rokossovsky showed that the glorification of the ambiguous personality of G. Zhukov is not too noticeable.
    But there were other marshals, for example, A. Vasilevsky, I. Konev ...

    Whatever commander G. Zhukov was, but here he was simply no politician.
    His exorbitant pride was noticed even in the West and cleverly played on it at the end of the war,
    offering to stay in Germany after WWII, the commander of the GSVOG

    On the site "Military Review" article
    "For which Stalin dismissed" Victory Marshal "Zhukov (documents)".
    https://topwar.ru/1657-za-chto-stalin-snyal-s-dolzhnosti-marshala-pobedy-zhukova-dokumenty.html

    In addition, G. Zhukov twice saved Khrushchev, and then also helped to get to power.
    Actually, this is precisely why Zhukov claims.


    And also from the Internet.
    "... On August 23, 1946, the Minister of the Armed Forces N. Bulganin sent a memorandum to Stalin, in which it was reported that 7 cars were detained near Kovel, in which there were 85 boxes of furniture. When checking the documents, it turned out that the furniture belonged to the Marshal According to the inventory of property that arrived from the city of Chemnitz, there were 7 carriages: 194 pieces of furniture for the bedroom, living room, study, kitchen, etc.
    Particularly distinguished furniture for the living room, made of mahogany.
    This was the last straw that overflowed Stalin’s patience, to which information on the exorbitant number of trophies exported by Soviet military leaders had reached before. It was necessary to restore order, especially among senior command personnel.

    The craving for material led to the degeneration of the Soviet elite, turned it into a bourgeois class with philistine psychology. The Soviet project was based on building a society of creation and service, and here the rudiments of a consumer society appeared.

    After the death of Stalin, it is precisely the rejection of the pursuit of the ideal of a society of creation and service and the orientation toward the material that will lead to the fall of the Red Empire.
    Stalin instructed the MGB and Abakumov personally to figure out which of the generals took out the most, exceeded the limits of reason and punish them in order to stop the decomposition of the army. This is how the "Trophy Business" (1946-1948) arose.
    As a result, three generals: Kulik, Gordov, Rybalchenko were shot. Generals: Telegin, Kryukov, Terentyev, Minyuk received from 10 to 25 years in the camps. In total, 38 generals and admirals were punished for the crimes related to the "Trophy Case". Most are stripped of their high ranks.
    And the most shocking thing was that the involvement of the Marshal of Victory - Zhukov in the "Trophy Case" in which he played the main role was proved ...
    ... As a result, Zhukov's accomplices, generals: Kryukov, Telegin, Terentyev, were imprisoned, but Marshal Zhukov was punished only by being sent to command a non-prestigious, rear and relatively small Ural military district instead of the large and significant Odessa military district. ... "

    To everyone who went through the crucible of war HONOR & RESPECT, from privates to marshals.
