"They gave out boots with windings and sent them near Rzhev": from the story of a military doctor about the war

When they talk about the heroes of the Great Patriotic War, they traditionally talk about the fighters who fought on the front lines, about the partisans who derailed the Nazis, about the scouts who acted behind enemy lines. With all this, of course, we must not forget about those heroes who were such, without firing a single shot in the war, nor transmitting a single secret radio message. We are talking about doctors, whose efforts and dedication have saved hundreds of thousands of lives - both at the front and in the rear.


The very role of military doctors, paramedics, medical instructors, nurses can hardly be overestimated. Sometimes fragile nurses literally carried several wounded soldiers from the battlefield on their shoulders in the course of one battle - under whistling shrapnel and a hail of bullets. 17-year-old slender girls endured soldiers, whose body weight was sometimes 2 times their own. On the ground, through fields plowed by explosions, through rows of barbed wire.

The cycle of programs "I remember" on the channel of blogger Dmitry Puchkov tells история Anna Moleva (married - Belenkaya), who went to the front after graduating from the Ivanovo Medical Institute. Anna Georgievna found herself in a real meat grinder - near Rzhev.

From the narration on behalf of Anna Moleva:

They gave out a gymnast, boots with windings and sent them to the North-Western Front - near Rzhev.

The full story about the service of the girl who saved many lives, was wounded herself, reached Berlin:

    Near Rzhev, they grabbed everything to the fullest, and it is better to shut up and not speculate on this topic, but just bow our heads and be silent.

      Under Rzhev from blood, grass turned red for ages,
      Near Rzhev, nightingales are still singing crazy
      About how near Rzhev, under the small town of Rzhev
      Great, long, hard battles were.

      Near Rzhev, guys are in a hurry to see the girls,
      In the district, perky, sonorous songs sound.
      Sometimes I can't even believe that with the songs next to
      To this day, fragments stick out in the broken earth.

      Near Rzhev, battles did not cease both night and day.
      And the enemy was clothed and shod and strong and cruel.
      Under Rzhev, the encirclement ring was compressed, compressed,
      And ours fell from their feet from bullets and from hunger.

      There are swamps under Rzhev, swamps and swamps are everywhere,
      Bog, bumps, holes, and rare willow trees.
      And in these swamps without an account, without an account, without an account
      The heroes of our desperate attacks crashed.

      Near Rzhev, already on the threshold of the birthplace,
      With the last effort they tried to keep the enemy.
      In the cruel, terrible autumn of forty-two
      The war has reaped its countless harvest.

      Near Rzhev, in a bloody, leaden continuous whirlpool,
      The glorious children of the native land did not flinch
      We rushed into the breakthrough of the environment of the Valley of Death
      And in this valley they found their immortality ...

      And now a grain field sways in the valley,
      And now a triple harvest is being taken in the valley.
      And there, under the ground, in three layers, in three layers, in three layers
      Soldiers, soldiers, soldiers of Russia are lying.

      And at home everyone is still waiting for them, everyone is waiting,
      An unfinished battle is in full swing in the hearts of relatives
      And at home they all believe, hope - suddenly yes they will return!
      Even in songs, even in thoughts, even in fairy tales they will return home! ..

      Under Rzhev from blood, grass turned red for ages,
      Near Rzhev, nightingales are still singing crazy
      About how near Rzhev, under the small town of Rzhev
      Great, long, difficult battles were ...

      Do you call the memory of those losses speculation? Isn't it a shame?

        Isn't it a shame to shoot cheap cranberries like "Rzhev"?

          In those places there was a bloody mess ... Or do you think about the victory marches? Defeats must be admitted, and not looking for the guilty in the environment of oneself, and even a loved one ... Do not agree?

              Dear, the story was about a nurse (a half-educated doctor), who I didn't want to see. I don’t know how it turned out for you, but I have a completely different opinion about this and based, by the way, on REAL participants of the Second World War, my grandfather’s sister went to the front as a nurse at 17, attributing a year to herself ... And she plowed the whole war, dragging peasants on yourself .... Try, drag 100 meters of your neighbor, and then say ..... And the film, but Hollywood has not been canceled. And now there is no cinema censorship ...

    There was a lot of tragedy in that war.
    The immense heroism shown by our people cannot be measured at all.
    Thanks to everyone and eternal memory to heroes and workers, our ancestors.

    I don't remember who wrote about how many people worked for one soldier. Whether the one who performed the feat, or who died without heroism, maybe even without killing the enemy: a seamstress who sewed a uniform for him, and a shoemaker, a gunsmith and a cook, a military commissar and a teacher in training. And there were also transport workers who took him to the front, and doctors who are ready to treat his wounded man.
    The awarded heroes are only a few, hundreds, well, thousands. And there are tens of millions of ordinary heroes-workers.

    From the heroes of the past
    Sometimes there are no names left.
    Those who have taken mortal combat
    They just became ground and grass ...
    Only their terrible valor
    Settled in the hearts of the living.
    This eternal fire, bequeathed to us alone,
    We store in the chest.

    So much blood is poured, so much heroism in people - in ordinary soldiers. Eternal memory to them and eternal glory to them. And what is the merit of our commanders? ...

    Look at the awards for sanitary instructors, especially in units that fought near Rzhev. There are no 17-year-old girls, only men. One of the most awarded categories was medical instructors. Before the attack, the fighters especially paid attention to their presence in sufficient numbers, since a person quickly dies from blood loss, especially in winter. The girls were mainly in medical battalions, assembly points, which are quite close to the front line. Of course, there were exceptions, the photographers liked to shoot them, and therefore the image of a sister was created for the layman. You can minus. But I know the battle of Rzhev in great detail and every year, usually on May 9, I go there to see my grandfather.

      The laws of the genre.
      More has been written about one women's night bomber regiment than about the other night bomber regiments combined, of which there were up to 70 at the same time.

    Again, someone minuses ... go to the Feat of the People, in the advanced search, fill in the column where he served 30 A, i.e. 30th Army of the Kalinin Front, in the column the rank of medical instructor. Yes, there are women there, but there are no 17-year-olds, they were not called up at that age. For 30 men, there is one woman and then either a joint venture or a sanitary-disinfector. A woman would not pull a man on herself, there was even a military specialty - a porter, he accompanied the medical instructor, the healthiest men were appointed there, as it was necessary to carry them out of the battlefield with weapons. Please, do not be lazy, look at the awards, you will have a different look at the war.
