140 years ago, Kliment Efremovich Voroshilov was born, statesman and military leader, Marshal of the Soviet Union. A man who has come a long way from a simple worker to the People's Commissar of Defense of the USSR, always devoted to the Motherland.

Revolutionary


Born February 4, 1881 near Lugansk in the family of a poor worker. Clement knew hunger as a child and begged for alms with his younger sister. From a young age he worked as a shepherd and miner. He had no opportunity to get a good education - two years in a zemstvo school. Became a worker. Since 1903 in the Bolshevik Party. Leader of the Lugansk Bolshevik Committee and the Lugansk Soviet.

The usual career of the then revolutionary: organizer of strikes, prison, training of military squads (during the First Revolution), underground activities, multiple arrests and exile.

After that, he commanded the Tsaritsyn group of troops, together with Stalin distinguished himself in the defense of Tsaritsyn.

People's Commissar of Defense and Marshal of the Union


From 1925 to 1934 - People's Commissar for Military and Naval Affairs, Chairman of the Revolutionary Military Council of the Republic. From 1934 to May 1940 - People's Commissar of Defense of the USSR. Since 1935 - Marshal of the USSR. Since 1938, chairman of the Main Military Council. In August 1939, he headed the Soviet delegation at the negotiations of the USSR, England and France.

Under the leadership of Kliment Efremovich, a tremendous amount of work was done to reorganize and build the Armed Forces of the USSR. He carried out work on technical re-equipment, development and expansion of the military education system, training and education of troops. He took part in the pre-war "purge" of the army.

During the years of the dominance of liberal myths, repression in the Armed Forces was assessed only negatively. However, then detailed, factual materials appeared that show that the "purge" of the army led to the improvement and strengthening of the USSR Armed Forces. The military opposition (part of the "fifth column"), which, during Hitler's attack, was supposed to raise a rebellion against Stalin, was eliminated, and the cadres were rehabilitated.

The Soviet command made a number of mistakes in the training of troops, including in their technical readiness. This affected the course of the Finnish campaign of 1939-1940.

For his mistakes in May 1940, he was removed from the post of People's Commissar of Defense. But he did not fall into disgrace, Stalin appreciated Voroshilov's loyalty. Appointed Deputy Chairman of the Council of People's Commissars (SNK) of the USSR and Chairman of the Defense Committee under the SNK.

During the Great Patriotic War, he was a member of the high command: a member of the State Defense Committee (GKO), Headquarters, led the troops in the northwest direction, the partisan movement.

He did a lot for the development of the partisan movement, improved the guerrilla control system. The central headquarters of the partisan movement through the efforts of Kliment Voroshilov became a powerful governing body. He solved many supply problems, aviation transportation and training of partisans.

From April 1943 he headed the Trophy Committee. The trophy service played an important role in the collection of captured equipment, weapons, ammunition, fuel, scrap metal and other valuables, as well as in helping the population freed from the Nazis.

After the war, Voroshilov continued to be a member of the top leadership of the USSR.

He died on December 2, 1969.

He was buried in Red Square in Moscow near the Kremlin wall.

Even during the life of the Marshal, Lugansk - Voroshilovgrad was named after him, two Voroshilovsk and Voroshilov (Ussuriysk) appeared.

Twice Hero of the Soviet Union, Hero of Socialist Labor, awarded 8 Orders of Lenin, 6 Orders of the Red Banner, Order of Suvorov 1st degree, etc.

Opinions of contemporaries about the marshal


Lenin met Voroshilov in 1906.

The leader of the revolution had a low opinion of

"Village head"

"Voroshilov-Balalaikin".

Obviously, the difference in the social origin and living conditions of the two revolutionaries affected. Clement was a beggar in childhood, begged, then a proletarian, did not receive a good education. However, Lenin valued Voroshilov for his unwavering proletarian loyalty to the party, communist ideals and the people. It did not have a "double bottom" like many revolutionaries who came from abroad. In boots, a cap and a blouse under a cheap coat was a devoted man, a favorite of the workers and a bright orator from the people.

Stalin's Foreign Minister Molotov was not a friend of Voroshilov, but he also noted the loyalty of the People's Commissar of the Party and personally to Stalin. Although Kliment Efremovich could express his personal opinion, as it was in 1927 about the policy in China. He was distinguished by bright and crushing peasant-proletarian simplicity in speeches.

Marshal Zhukov believed Voroshilov

"Dilettante in military affairs."

Stalin's choice in favor of Voroshilov when he was appointed head of the USSR Armed Forces is quite understandable.

He followed Lenin's logic. Joseph Vissarionovich knew Clement well, was disposed to him. Unlike the same Frunze, Voroshilov did not have a political instinct, a talent for a commander and military erudition. But unlike Trotsky, he was devoted to Stalin, the party and the people. He helped to defeat the "fifth column" in the country, which was one of the main reasons for the Great Victory.

He made up for the shortcomings with great dedication, energy, efficiency and hard work. Having made his way from a simple worker to the People's Commissar of Defense, he retained his simplicity and sincerity, while greatly growing intellectually. He created the country's new Armed Forces, traveled among the troops, conducted exercises and conferences. With all his might, he consistently and methodically built up the might of the Red Army. The troops respected and loved him.

The cavalry myth


In perestroika and democratic Russia, a myth was created about

"Stupid cavalry"

Voroshilov and Budyonny, who allegedly clung to the outdated experience of the Civil War, fettered the development of the USSR Armed Forces, hindered their mechanization and put “outdated” cavalry in the first place. That was one of the reasons for the most difficult defeats of the Red Army in the initial period of the war.

In particular, Voroshilov was quoted at the 1934th Party Congress in January XNUMX:

"It is necessary ... once and for all to put an end to the wrecking 'theories' about replacing the horse with the machine."

However, this is a phrase taken out of context.

In addition, the People's Commissar spoke about the horse population in agriculture, and not about the army. The point was that, despite the mechanization of agriculture, the need for which no one denied, a horse is still needed in the village.

And in the section devoted to the Red Army, Kliment Efremovich said something different: not a word about cavalry. And a lot about

"War of motors".

The People's Commissar noted the need for forced motorization, mastering the production of new motors.

In 1940, there was a large reduction in cavalry in the army: in 1937 there were 7 cavalry departments, 32 cavalry divisions (of which 5 mountain cavalry and 3 territorial), 2 separate cavalry brigades, 1 separate and 8 spare cavalry regiments.

The number of red cavalry in peacetime states was 195 thousand people. In 1940, it was planned to leave 5 departments of cavalry corps, 15 cavalry divisions, 5 mountain cavalry divisions, 1 separate cavalry brigade and 5 reserve cavalry regiments with a total number of 122 thousand sabers.

Instead of the disbanded cavalry divisions, they created tank and mechanized.

In early 1941, the People's Commissar of Defense Timoshenko and the chief of the General Staff Zhukov presented Stalin with a note outlining the scheme for the mobilization deployment of the Red Army. On its basis, on February 12, 1941, a draft mobilization plan was prepared. According to it, the army had 3 cavalry directorates, 10 cavalry and 4 mountain cavalry divisions, as well as 6 reserve regiments.

The total number of cavalry was reduced to 116 thousand people.

This plan was even exceeded. And by the beginning of the attack of the Third Reich, only 13 cavalry divisions remained in the Red Army.

The war showed that the reduction in cavalry was rushed.

The importance of cavalry in the modern "war of motors" has been underestimated.

In Russia, with its vast expanses, the lack of good roads and large forests, it was the cavalry that turned out to be a very effective branch of the army.

Horses were transport (horse-drawn) that perfectly suited Russian conditions. They had better cross-country ability than German cars and armored personnel carriers and did not require fuel. They could act in muddy roads and snowfalls.

The cavalry was used for reconnaissance, raids on the rear of the enemy, violations of communications in order to disorganize the control and supply of the enemy, and to strengthen the partisan forces.

Also, in the conditions of the weakening of the armored forces in the first period of the war (heavy losses), mobile units were required to develop the first success of offensive operations, break into the deep rear of the enemy, create "cauldrons".

Zhukov already on July 15, 1941 proposed to form light cavalry divisions (3 thousand sabers).

By the end of the year, there were already 82 light-type cavalry divisions (without tanks, divisional artillery, anti-tank defense and air defense, sappers and rear services).

In 1942, the cavalry divisions were reduced to corps, which (in the place with tank corps and armies) played a large role in the defeat of the Wehrmacht.

Tanks and cavalry complemented each other perfectly.

In addition, the cavalry corps, which did not require many tons of ammunition and fuel, could advance deeper than motorized formations.

And finally, they could easily do without good roads. Moreover, they even knew how to fight without them at all.

A man is not a horse, feed that regularly it is necessary ... and not straw, oats and hay ...... Starter !!!! Tell us what year the cavalry units were left without rolling stock ... were withdrawn from the Armed Forces and transferred to the border detachments ...

    We are the red cavalry
    And about us
    Epic epics
    Lead the story:
    About how clear in the night
    About how rainy days
    We are proud
    We go boldly into battle

    Chorus:

    Lead us, Budyonny, bravely into battle!
    Let the thunder rumble
    Let the fire all around:
    We are all selfless heroes
    And our whole life is a struggle!

    Budyonny is our brother
    All the people are with us.
    Order: “Do not hang heads
    And look ahead! "
    After all, Voroshilov is with us,
    First red officer
    We will be able to shed blood
    For the USSR.

          Here is the beginning of this Act you are talking about, dear Hagen.

          "1. The approved regulation on the People's Commissariat of Defense, approved by the Government in 1934, is outdated, does not correspond to the existing structure and does not reflect the current tasks assigned to the People's Commissariat of Defense. Newly created departments:
          Main Directorate of the Red Army,
          Department of Military-Technical Supply,
          Supply Office, ... "
          And so on ...
          Colleague Hagen, this document only says that in those days people very quickly learned from the identified shortcomings of the management apparatus and instantly corrected them to the best of their understanding of how and what to do. Here we say: The Civil War ended in 1919. This is if I'm not mistaken about the end date. But it is not over! Those who believe that it is over are mistaken, it simply passed into a latent phase, taking on an outwardly peaceful form and manifesting itself only in repression. And in the conditions of the latent phase of the Civil War, someone learned faster, and someone more slowly. But time was running out! It was moving inexorably towards the date when the united West would unleash the terror on us, which we call the Great Patriotic War.
          Because it was like this: you do not have time to understand how to do here, now, at this historical moment, so I will replace you, not doubting that soon you will understand that I was right. This is how statesmen worked then. Therefore, each year of that time went down in the history of our country as a significant contribution to its future victory.

            You are not a military man, you are forgivable. I accepted and handed over positions (not with such acts, of course - the People's Commissar is a god of the last level laughing ), and therefore I will tell you that this act can be called devastating and destructive. But the time was such that Stalin needed a person who was personally devoted to him in this position. Because a significant part of the generals and senior officers were previously very seriously associated with the figure of Trotsky. And the issue of conspiracy in the ranks of the Army and Navy is not an anecdote, but the harsh realities of those days. But the Winter War showed Stalin the ability of the Red Army in business and both horrified him, and also inspired Hitler. Therefore, extraordinary measures were taken. This is, if only briefly.

              Dear colleague, I agree with you! I know about this conspiracy - it was. Heads flew in 37th. Here, at VO, two years ago we discussed this topic with regards to Tukhachevsky. And there was no time to correct punctures by the forces of the person who allowed them or did not see them. If you cannot, do what is available to you, and make room for the more far-sighted. And if you are to blame, you will answer as it should. How far from our reality is this approach!
              And I keep thinking about how difficult it was then, in the era of the secret phase of the Civil War.

                I completely agree with you. In addition, it is necessary to take into account the inevitability of a war between Germany and the USSR. Therefore, I am extremely struck by the lightness of the negative assessment of Stalin's work from both Medvedev and Putin.

                  Well, you see, some people tend to increase their own importance not at the expense of personal achievements, but by lowering the self-esteem of others. But this is in everyday life. Statesmen should not do this with the past of their country. From this, the industry of today's Russia will not hesitate. Hiding a country's past will not raise its status in the eyes of the rest of the world. It seems to me that this is a policy of fitting into world capitalism. The signal sent by Putin and Medvedev abroad, they say, do not hesitate, we are with you. They have to do this in conditions when society and the population are still very Soviet in terms of mentality. Abroad they see this, and it becomes the basis of mistrust in our leadership. After all, there is an understanding that the mentality is such a state of the people, from which one can get out into another mentality only after centuries. Or even stay the same. And this understanding is extended to Putin and Medvedev ...
                  I read a long article by Putin about the Second World War. Everything is said there correctly, but he did walk around Stalin. Like, repression. He did not understand that the country had not yet emerged from the confrontation with the past, with which it was necessary to tie up as soon as possible on the eve of a big war. Or maybe he understands everything, but curtsies have to be done.
                  It didn't seem to help him.
                  And further. Shortly before the publication of Putin's article on VO, a large discussion took place on the Great Patriotic War. And what? I began to read the president's article, and it turned out that she reproduced the discussion literally from the comments. Presidential speechwriters didn't strain too much))))

                    I will support YOU. I agree. Personally, I am generally surprised how a country divided by revolution and civil war, almost destroyed, was economically able to industrialize and enter the Second World War, and win this war. Whoever said anything and compared tsarist Russia with the RSFSR and the Union, but the economic breakthrough was made, a tremendous one. For reference: many of the weapons were ordered by the tsar abroad. Even the legendary cruiser Varyag was built in the USA. With regards to Marshal Tukhachevsky, with all due respect, but the nobleman Tukhachevsky should have understood that in the workers 'and peasants' army, there is no place for nobles. I personally know about his general "talents" only "successes" in suppressing peasant revolts.

          This act was drawn up by Voroshilov himself, he knew that he was going to another post and the People's Commissariat of Defense had been preparing this act for two weeks, which described all the existing problems so that Tymoshenko would quickly get into business .. This speaks of Voroshilov's high honesty and partisanship.

      It is on his conscience that the blockade of Leningrad took place so fast and so disastrous.

      August 17, 1941. - occupied Narva. It is 134 km in a straight line from Leningrad. Stalin to Voroshilov:

      "It is quite possible to eliminate this danger, since the Germans have little strength here, and the new three divisions thrown in to help, with skillful leadership, could eliminate the danger. WITHTavka cannot put up with the mood of doom and the impossibility of taking decisive steps, with conversations that everything has already been done and nothing else can be done. "


      Voroshilov responds ... by creating volunteer labor battalions with antediluvian weapons. The militiamen were supplied with outdated rifles,ikami and daggers. , introduces the election of commanders.
      Leads to ... attack

      The huge potential of the artillery of the fleet is NOT used at all, artillery defense is not organized.
      Stalin Voroshilov, 22 Aug:
      Such a defense cannot be considered satisfactory ... We think that the defense of Leningrad should be primarily artillery defense. ... If you don't have enough army artillery, you could remove the artillery from the ships and install it in the entire encirclement of Leningrad.
      ... The link to your congestion is ridiculous. We are no less overloaded than you. You are simply disorganized people and do not feel responsible for your actions, which is why you act as on an isolated island, without reckoning with anyone.


      The indiscriminate rapid retreat continues, but the city lives as in peacetime, there are almost no measures to evacuate people, enterprises, and Stalin urgently sent a Commission to organize it: due to the inaction of the local leadership, he is forced to lead manually
      Stalin, August 29:

      “If this continues, I'm afraid that Leningrad will be surrendered stupidly stupidly, and all the Leningrad divisions risk being captured. What are Popov and Voroshilov doing? They do not even report on the measures they think to take against such a danger. They are busy looking for new lines of retreat, and in this they see their task. Where did they get such an abyss of passivity and purely rural obedience to fate? "

      Stalin Voroshilov and Zhdanov ::

      "In Tikhvin there are 2 air divisions 39 and 2, both are at your disposal, but they did not receive assignments from you"
      .

      These two divisions, fighter and bomber - Voroshilov and Zhdanov "forgot" about their existence
      September 9, Stalin to Voroshilov:
      "We are outraged by your behavior, which is expressed in the fact that you only inform us about the loss of this or that area by us, but usually you don't say a word about what measures you have taken in order to stop losing cities and stations. ... What is your aviation doing, why does it not support the actions of our troops on the field? "


      Voroshilov was recalled in disgrace and Zhukov was sent to Leningrad to save the situation.

      On April 22, 1942, the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPSU (b) adopts a resolution on unsatisfactory performance K.E. Voroshilov during the period from the Finnish War to the Second World War.

      "... Comrade Voroshilov did not cope with the assigned task and could NOT organize the defense of Leningrad... In view of the above, the Central Committee of the CPSU (b) decides:

      1. To admit that Comrade Voroshilov did not justify himself in the work entrusted to him at the front.

      2. Send comrade Voroshilov to the rear military work "

          The counterstroke near Soltsy (July 14-18, 1941) is one of the first successful counterattacks against German troops, inflicted by Soviet troops in the area of ​​the city of Soltsy. As a result of the counterattack, the German army was thrown back 40 kilometers. This counterattack, as well as the subsequent defense of the Red Army near Luga, delayed the enemy's advance on Leningrad by almost a month, which allowed the Soviet command to gain time to prepare the city for the upcoming defense.
          There, a bunch of secret documents were seized, including the use of tanks by the Germans.

                  Defense of Leningrad. 1941-1945. Documents and materials ... Moscow: Political Encyclopedia, 2019

                  Stalin on that Politburo:
                  1. The war with Finland in 1939-1940 revealed a great disadvantage and backwardness in the leadership of the People's Commissariat of Defense. In the course of this war, it became clear that the People's Commissariat of Defense was unprepared to ensure the successful development of military operations. The Red Army did not have mortars and machine guns, there was no correct registration of aircraft and tanks, there was no necessary winter clothing for the troops, the troops did not have food concentrates. Great neglect was revealed in the work of such important directorates of the People's Commissariat of Defense as the GAU (Main Artillery Directorate), the Combat Training Directorate. Directorate of the Air Force, low level of business organization in military educational institutions, etc. All this affected the protraction of the war and led to unnecessary casualties.

                  Comrade Voroshilov, being at that time People's Commissar of Defense, was forced to admit at the plenum of the Central Committee of the CPSU (b) at the end of March 1940 the revealed inconsistency of his leadership.

                  Taking into account the state of affairs in the People's Commissariat of Defense and seeing that it is difficult for Comrade Voroshilov to cover such large issues as the People's Commissariat of Defense, the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party (Bolsheviks) considered it necessary to release Comrade Voroshilov from the post of People's Commissar of Defense.

                  2. At the beginning of the war with Germany, Comrade Voroshilov was appointed commander-in-chief of the North-Western direction, which has its main task of defending Leningrad. As it turned out later, Comrade Voroshilov did not cope with the assigned task and was unable to organize the defense of Leningrad. In view of all this, the State Defense Committee recalled Comrade Voroshilov from Leningrad and gave him work on new military formations in the rear.

          Zhukov was a good performer, with an iron will. He could demand and achieve the impossible. But Stalin, knowing Zhukov, did not give him the opportunity to make decisions on his own. At least at the beginning of the war. Therefore, Stalin entrusted the South and South-West with Tymoshenko, away from himself, because he knew about Tymoshenko's ability to make independent decisions. And he kept Zhukov close at hand, and through his head contacted someone. armies and even separate divisions and clarified the situation, gave orders. And, understanding the state of affairs in the West. the front is better than Zhukov, he did not give Zhukov the reserves he required, but bank them for a counteroffensive. And if Stalin had followed Zhukav's lead and squandered the reserves, it is not known how the battle of Moscow would have ended.
          Therefore, Zhukov, possessing such a character, was often the representative of the Headquarters on serious fronts. He was "Stalin's fist". It was later, when Zhukov gained sufficient experience, Stalin entrusted him with the front.

            What Stalin is not clever, but he physically could not think for everyone.
            It was just that Stalin realized that Budyonny, Voroshilov and Timoshenko did not correspond to modern warfare. How else to explain that they were no longer placed even on secondary sectors of the front.

              Have you deliberately distorted the essence of my post?
              When Stalin had a need to choose who to entrust the South and South-West, he chose Tymoshenko, realizing that he, unlike the then Zhukov, would not break the wood. And he kept Zhukov "with him", next to him, so that he could react quickly to Zhukov's decisions.
              By the way, I doubt that instead of Tymoshenko, someone would have been better able to lead the direction. With all that happened there.

                With Stalin's assessment of Zhukov, it is more difficult: we personally have not heard, but Zhukov himself naturally "praises himself". Moreover, the first edition of Zhukov and the last one are different. Konev had his own "graters" with Zhukov. Rokossovsky is not a cheat

                  If not for the Polish "tail" of Rokossovsky, he would most likely have been a "victory marshal." Zhukov "got his mind" by the end of 43, and there was no equal to him, except for Rokossovsky. Therefore, he became the "marshal of victory"
                  Quote: vladcub
                  It is more difficult with Stalin's assessment of Zhukov: we personally have not heard

                  There was such a phrase of Stalin - "Zhukov fights better than Konev, and no worse than Rokossovsky"
                  Tymoshenko and Meretskov graduated from the Academy of the General Staff of Germany. The same Meretskov who conducted "defeatist conversations" with Pavlov.
                  Say, if the Germans attack and win, they will still create a Russian army and they cannot do without us. Something like this. But Stalin forgave Meretskov.

    By the time Zhukov appeared in Leningrad, the front had already been stabilized by Voroshilov.

    Voroshilov was removed on September 11, 1941. On September 13, Zhukov arrived in Leningrad.
    By the time Zhukov appeared in Leningrad, von Leeb had bitten the bit, sent to hell with Directive No. 35, and, instead of forcing the Neva and connecting with the Finns, threw the 4th TGr into the suburbs of Leningrad to cut off the defending regular units of the Red Army from the city (von Leeb wanted to have time to take Leningrad like Berlin-45).
    On September 13, the German infantry joined the offensive. On September 16, the Germans made their way to the Gulf of Finland and isolated the Oranienbaum patch. On September 17, Pushkin was captured.

During which, for example, it was not possible to find about one and a half thousand tanks and tankettes. The industry handed over their army, there are no certificates for cancellation - and the armored vehicles themselves are not available either.

                  he denigrated himself and exposed himself to general ridicule, while others do not need to make efforts:
                  Voroshov: Gluboko realizing that huge harm, which the anti-party group of Molotov, Kaganovich, Malenkov and others could inflict on our party and the country, I strongly condemn her factional activities aimed at turning the party off the Leninist path. I fully understand the seriousness of my mistake, toWhen I supported the harmful actions of members of the anti-party group.
                  lol

                  And HOW he changed his shoes in flight even earlier, in 1953, in general, he takes it in a hurry:
                  Voroshilov: The report of Comrade Malenkov, the speeches of the members of the Presidium and the Central Committee are enough fully revealed all the criminal abomination of the traitor Beria, gave an exhaustive and vivid description of this criminal adventurer.

                  First of all, comrades, in answering this question, I must emphasize, from myself I will say - Beria is a type of an insidious, cunning enemy, a type of a complete adventurer, an intriguer, who knew how to deftly enter into the trust of the leader, who knew how to hide his dastardly plans for a long time and wait for a convenient moment for himself. All this vile and the traitor's crime has been solved, well understood and suppressed in time.

                  During the life of the great Stalin, Beria was impudent, rude, arrogant, impudent, He strove everywhere and everywhere to show his "superiority" over others, did not take into account the human dignity of the people around him and especially the people subordinate to him, whether they were ministers or scientists, or his comrades at work - he treated everyone.

    In childhood and adolescence, I talked a lot with veterans of the Second World War, my mother is a participant in the Second World War, I will say that I heard from them.
    .. Voroshilov did a lot to improve the shooting training of the Red Army. He introduced: "People's Commissars".
    Regarding: "he solved many supply problems" comrades, do you think it is very difficult for a member of the Politburo to help with air travel? I think very much. For some reason, and: Kovpak, Saburov, Vershigor ALL praised Ponamorenko, but I don't remember Voroshilov. Who read Starinov? _ He must have detailed information about the Central Broadcast Center, I read a long time ago
    About Budyonny on the site there were materials that as a commander he was weak. My grandfather, by my mother, was in the Marine Corps, defended Sevastopol. Not censored about S.M.
    Why is that? By the way, the author "forgot" that Stalin criticized Budyonny before the war, and Stalin was an EXCELLENT understanding of people. If he was sure that S.M. could defend Moscow, why did he put Zhukov in command?

    As a child, my friend and I read the exploits of Voroshilov during the Civil War. And all about him. And quite a bit about Budyonny. Over time, I realized that commanders bear the main responsibility for the armies, production facilities. And sweet myths are created about others.

      For the commanders of the Civil War, who were stuck in those times, Pomnitsa, walked well leader and teacher at the meeting on the results of the SPV.
      So, what prevented our commanding assembly from waging a war in Finland in a new way, not in the type of civil war, but in a new way? In my opinion, the cult of tradition and experience of the civil war interfered. As our command structure is regarded: have you participated in the civil war? No, I did not participate. Go away. Did he participate? Participated. Give him here, he has a lot of experience and more.
      I must say, of course, the experience of the civil war is very valuable, the traditions of the civil war are also valuable, but they are completely insufficient. This is precisely the cult of the tradition and experience of the civil war that must be put to an end, and it prevented our command personnel from immediately reorganizing themselves in a new way, on the tracks of modern war.
      Not the last person we have is comrade commander, the first one, if you want, in terms of the civil war, he has a lot of experience, he is a respected, honest person, but he still can’t adapt to a new modern way. He does not understand that it is impossible to immediately conduct an attack without artillery processing. He sometimes leads the shelves with a bang. If a war is waged like this, it means ruining the matter, whether it will be personnel or not, the first class will ruin anyway. If the enemy sits in the trenches, has artillery, tanks, then he will undoubtedly defeat.

      The traditions and experience of the civil war are completely inadequate, and whoever considers them sufficient will surely die. The commander who believes that he can fight and win, relying only on the experience of the civil war, will die as a commander.

    Lenin uniquely characterizes Voroshilov, in his usual boorish manner, the culture of speech of the leader of the world proletariat, of course, left much to be desired.
    Well, at least he didn't call him something like (from Ilyich's lexicon) - a horse dealer, or an archdryan and the like.

                    The fact is that Lenin really called Voroshilov that way - according to the recollections of party comrades, but this could not have happened in the PSS, since until his last days Voroshilov was a prominent statesman and so on. and leaving such characteristics in the MSS would be silly.
                    Lenin, who hated Russians and Russia, see PSS Lenin volume 36 - I don't give a damn about Russia, had an impeccable musical and literary taste, traveled a lot throughout Europe, knew a lot about good food, read a lot of all kinds of philosophical books, etc., and so on.
                    Kliment Efremovich was a typical Russian peasant, starved and beggarly in childhood, three years of education, all he could do was play the balalaika well, it is unlikely that he was well versed in Marxism-Leninism, as it is not difficult to guess.
                    And, therefore, Lenin treated Voroshilov with such disdain, given Lenin's own disgust for everything Russian.

    The usual career of the then revolutionary: organizer of strikes, prison, training of fighting squads (during the First Revolution), underground activities, multiple arrests and exile. He spent several years in exile in the Arkhangelsk and Perm provinces.
    Why did this man, who did not work anywhere, eat deliciously and sleep well?

    В
    During the First World War, he worked at the Tsaritsyn artillery plant, was exempted from conscription.
    During the war, he dodged the draft, dodged the army, but conducted anti-state propaganda and speeches.

    What would have happened to him for this in 1941?

    People's Commissar of Defense and Marshal of the Union

    Not a day did not unlearn at the Academy of the General Staff, but took the highest military post and rank in the army and was not at all embarrassed that The General Staff Academy is named ... after himas well as ... Naval Academy belay

    Under the leadership of Kliment Efremovich, a tremendous amount of work was done to reorganize and build the Armed Forces of the USSR. He carried out work on technical re-equipment, development and expansion of the military education system, training and education of troops.

    The huge work on the collapse of the USSR Armed Forces is very clearly described in "The act of acceptance of the People's Commissariat of Defense of the USSR Timoshenko S. K. from Voroshilov K. Ye. "Dated May 8, 1940

    It is generally impossible to read it without swearing, but reading it you clearly understand that the wrong people were shot in 1937-40.

    By the way, this Act clearly states ALL causes of the 1941 disaster
    led the troops in the northwest direction
    Leningrad almost gave up.

    Stalin's choice in favor of Voroshilov when he was appointed head of the USSR Armed Forces is quite understandable.

    Voroshilov on the Stalinists:
    Deeply aware of the enormous harm that the anti-party group of Molotov, Kaganovich, Malenkov and others could inflict on our party and country, I strongly condemn her factional activities aimed at turning the party off the Leninist path.
    lol

    Few people know, but not Khrushchev (he had no right), namely Voroshilov, as Chairman of the USSR Supreme Soviet, transferred Crimea from Russia to the so-called. Ukraine.

    Where this man turned out to be "capable" is in the repression of his comrades-in-arms, Ukrainization and loyal service to the top leaders, and it does not matter whether Stalin, Khrushchev, or Brezhnev.

    Lenin about him: "Voroshilov balalaikin"

    So not a myth about a cavalryman, no.

    It is not necessary to reduce everything to personal loyalty to comrade STALIN. Voroshilov showed himself well during the Civil War, and a member of the RVS 1-Horse. He was not a bad organizer. When creating the Red Army, he relied on the opinions of military experts, especially B.M. Shaposhnikov, with whom they jointly fought against Tukhachevsky's quirks. No one is immune from mistakes and shortcomings, and all the failures of the Finnish war should not be blamed on him. There, the command, at the army, corps and divisional levels, was not up to the mark, the leadership of G.Sh. did not heed the recommendations of B.M. Shaposhnikov. So not only K.E. Voroshilov is to blame for the failures of the initial period. By the way, at the meeting on the results of the Soviet-Finnish war, J.V. STALIN did not personally reproach the former People's Commissar. Zhukov's opinion is subjective, K.E. Voroshilov began to command the North-Western Front in the difficult time of 1941. Nevertheless, it was on this front, and under the command of Voroshilov, that the first and most sensitive counterattack was made against the Army Group North in the region of the Soltsy mountains, which Manstein reluctantly recalls in his “lost victories”. , forgotten in favor of the certainly inflated offensive of Zhukov under the mountains. Yelnei. And throughout the Second World War, K.E. Voroshilov was in full view. I.V. STALIN knew what this or that managerial worker was good for, knew how to select personnel.

      He NEVER commanded anything, and when he started, he led to a quick and catastrophic blockade of Leningrad, which was noted: on April 22, 1942, the Politburo of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks took the decision on the unsatisfactory work of K.E. Voroshilov during the period from the Finnish War to the Second World War.

            At the same time, from the reserve of the Northern Front, the 237th rifle division was sent to the Luga line from the Petrozavodsk direction, and the 70th rifle division from the Karelian Isthmus. From here, the control of the 10th Mechanized Corps was transferred from the 21st and 24th Panzer Divisions. However, all these forces could fully concentrate on the Luga line only by mid-July. In addition, Voroshilov, having assumed the post of commander-in-chief of the direction, immediately decided to transfer these forces from the Northern Front to the 11th Army of the North-Western Front. According to the then chief of the engineering service of the Northern Front, BV Bychevsky, “when Major General DN Nikigiev [chief of staff of the front] found out about it, he almost got a blow. For the Luga line of defense again there were no necessary forces, and at the same time we weakened ourselves in the north. " [58]

            You can understand the offense of the front command, from which with one stroke of the pen they took the troops torn out of Karelia with blood - but in fairness it should be said that it was thanks to this decision of Voroshilov that a shock fist was created, which was later used in the counterstrike near Soltsy. It can be assumed with a high degree of probability that otherwise these forces would have been used without much effect in the defense of Luga and the Leningradskoye Highway, while there would have been no obstacles for Manstein's breakthrough to Novgorod.
            I didn’t prepare at all - I only distributed my forces .. Oh yes, this is "And he directed the direction directly"

                      You "Act of May 8, 1940" for a start - read.

                        If you are really so impartial and fair, then you can actually find some kind of act "dated 1934" so that you can compare what is actually collapsed and destroyed. And then you can speculate about "conscience" ...

                        I did not understand: Voroshilov - from November 6, 1925 to June 20, 1934 - People's Commissar for Military and Naval Affairs and Chairman of the Revolutionary Military Council of the USSR; in 1934-1940 the People's Commissar of Defense of the USSR. Total BIroshilov spent 15 years at the head of the military department, longer than anyone else during the Soviet period.

                        What does it have to do with ... 34 years old?

                        The 1940 Act was read (list of crimes), no?

    Only Voroshilov has nothing to do with him: everything was conceived, planned and assembled for the offensive BEFORE him.

    He is an extra who was present at the impact

    Yes, they developed and planned the headquarters, but Voroshilov made a decision and took responsibility upon himself, both in cases of success, as in the failure of a counterattack, for this one must have the will and determination, he had it.
    Quote: Olgovich
    He NEVER commanded anything, and when he started, he led to a quick and catastrophic blockade of Leningrad

    Military science is simple and quite accessible to the common mind of man. But it is difficult to fight as Clausewitz used to say, Klement Yefimych has nothing to do with the blockade of Leningrad, then such a situation developed at the front. And in general, it is necessary to learn a simple truth, in 1941 the Wehrmacht was the most powerful army in the world, and it was not necessary to invent all sorts of versions this way, or maybe this way. When Prussia in 1870-71 quickly rolled France, all of Europe understood one thing, now Germany is different. That in WWI, that in WWII, there was no one to compete with the German Reich, from the word at all. All European countries began to conclude alliances, specifically against Germany. And even the Anglo-French alliance could not stand the power of the Wehrmacht. Only the USSR had to confront the power of the German Reich alone for three long years. To think that the General Staff and the generals of the Red Army could, in 41, outplay the German General Staff and the generals, where they are strong, fly in the clouds. 41 years will pass after him 42 years, and the time will come when we will beat the Germans. There will be other generals, other names for K.E. Voroshilov will find other things to do. But it is impossible to forget who in difficult times held back the Germans.

        Also under Voroshilov, the reorganization of the training of military personnel was completed. During the reform, military education was divided into two main types: secondary (after graduation from a normal military school) and higher (after graduation from the academy). - this was again prepared by others, but he only commanded the direction ..

        So Zhukov did not graduate from academies, but Marshal Kulik studied at the Frunze Academy, and somehow he did not shine. The generals of the Wehrmacht did not graduate from any academies at all, the same Keitel, Model, Schörner and others, which did not prevent them from commanding the armies. The topic of the academies of the branch of the military, a separate one, for which they were created and whether they are needed at the present time, there will probably be an article on V.O.

            Be careful with the words about lies. The courses of command personnel of 1921-24 were initially focused on retraining the command personnel of the civil war, leveling the general level of his knowledge, to give him theoretical training. So, the Higher Cavalry School in Leningrad (by the way, gave the Red Army such commanders as G.K. Zhukov (1923), A.I. Eremenko (1923), K.K. Rokossovsky, I.Kh. Baghramyan (1923-25) , D.G.

This is what courses are. Voroshilov at that time was at the party work enough to do.

                    No need to cross the border, there will be no warnings. As a representative of the nationalities, whose relatives were pressed by the Soviet power, you make exaggerated demands on that power. During the period that Voroshilov was in the post of People's Commissar, a lot has been done, but you can't change everything, you can't jump above the bar. And the mess in the army was always difficult to correct, whoever served he knows. It is not necessary to refer to the act of acceptance, Tymoshenko did not fall from the moon, he knew perfectly well about the shortcomings of the Red Army, since he was in command positions. It is always easier to talk about shortcomings, and when he himself became People's Commissar, I realized that things were not going well. The main thing is that at that time more than one army in the world could not reach the level of the Wehrmacht, and the Red Army is no exception. To press charges against the officer corps of the Red Army that they are not like the Germans is natural stupidity. There were those who were, and so they met the war.

Besides, traditions, caste rules of the Prussian General Staff officer corps since 1816. Not one country in Europe did not have this. Why should the USSR be an exception?

Such articles would be broadcast in schools and on TV, it would be enough to drive young people about the backward union. The USSR is something that today's Russia never dreamed of.

      J. Ya. Kotin named the tank KV because he was married to Voroshilov's adopted daughter. Well, how can such a father-in-law not do a good thing. And the memory of the dead Kirov had to be immortalized - hence the QMS.

              That was a long time ago laughing One of our elders in the year of "replacement" in another district of the NSh slapped 6 "stricters" - well, this is nonsense in itself, but what position will he be "replaced" with with such a personal matter? Party comrades decided to help. A party meeting was held, where, in addition to the NSh, they invited comrades from the higher party organization. Debriefing: This officer is characterized by colleagues and commanders as a principled communist and highly professional specialist. The whole problem is that NS has a personal dislike for him. It was decided: to ask the higher party organs to check the professional activities of the NSh, who dishonor the party with his behavior. Well, something like this. As a result, the reprimands were removed, the starley left for a major position, and the NSh got a "strogach", was replaced by an equivalent one. The party was useful, it was!

But it was you, the lecturers, who had to explain to the immature brains of the students the essence of the disagreements at the congress, what could have happened if the congress had accepted another, not Lenin's proposal. And if the students understood what is the essence of the disagreements at the congresses, what is the essence of non-Leninist proposals, then Gorbachevism would not have happened.

                      Why did you get a higher education? Is it not so that you yourself will learn to think and understand what you have read,

                      Yes, read ... BUT WE DIDN'T READ IT. You can understand READ. And how to understand NOT READ, when Trotsky's books were FORBIDDEN, and Hilferding, and Bernays, and Pareto - the theory of elites, and Orwell - everything was FORBIDDEN. And can a person with incomplete knowledge be considered educated?
                      After all, every five years they were sent to advanced courses ... [/ quote]
                      It means not to feed the horse, since you yourself were not able to deal with Trotsky's ideas.
                      So they figured it out themselves - they opened a textbook, the same from Kaliningrad to Chukotka and read ...
                      And what am I writing to you? All troubles are from INCOMPLETE KNOWLEDGE.

That - there was a single textbook, a single program and an army of thousands of assistants, Art. teachers, associate professors and professors who could not step aside from the program. And they paid us not for our faith, but for how and what we gave to the people. And you know, it's nice to hang around and see how nice people are. How did we know it was noodles? So all the claims are against the CPSU Central Committee. We only did what we were told. And they did it well! Those who were bad were quickly kicked out. Why pay mediocrity?

    Under Stalin, the best 40g tank in the world would never have been named after the (stupid cavalier) KV!

    I recommend that you familiarize yourself with the letter from the military representative of Kalivoda regarding the KV tank. Churchill's statement about the tank of the same name immediately comes to mind. smile
    Moreover, the plant did not take any measures to eliminate the shortcomings of the tank even after the visit of the Mehlis commission. And so he continued to drive into the troops a 47-ton tank with a suspension and transmission designed for 40 tons, with twisting shafts and "balding" gear wheels, with an engine cooling system already boiling at 20 km / h, with an air filter that requires cleaning every hour and a half, with wedge brakes, with a barely rotating turret (the drive to the 7-ton unbalanced KV turret was taken from the 3-ton T-28 turret), etc.

        There was only one reason - the plant hoped to correct all the shortcomings in the new KV-3 (that way, by 1942, if possible - because in 1941 the tank could not even drive normally). And therefore, he considered the KV tank to be "passable" and temporary, without taking any measures to eliminate the shortcomings that the army men had repeatedly reported.
        In short, in 1940 and 1941, LKZ drove marriage, receiving money for it. Moreover, even with the marriage there were problems - to fulfill the plan, the acceptance certificates had to be forged (and even the factory workers failed, forgetting to remake the dates of the forms).

            Is there a consumer complaint, the commander of a tank regiment (division, corps, etc.) for the products manufactured by the plant?

            There is even better - a letter from Mehlis to Stalin and Voroshilov on the results of work at the LKZ of the special commission of the People's Commissariat of the State Control:
            In connection with a letter sent to me by a military engineer comrade Kalivoda (former military representative of ABTU KA at the Kirov plant) in which he said that the KV tanks had serious design flaws, the People's Commissariat of State Control, in agreement with comrade Voroshilov, checked the production of tanks at the Kirov plant KV.
            As a result, the following was established.
            The guaranteed mileage established for HF in 2000 km for individual units and assemblies is not maintained, which is confirmed by a number of tests carried out by the plant.
            The KV gearbox is not strong enough ... Introduced in August of this year. in the design of the gearbox, the lock that fixes the position of the gears reduces the possibility of emergency breakdowns, however, the strength of the gearbox itself remains unsatisfactory. In October, the plant received a complaint report from the military unit, which indicated that in tank No. 3622 (adopted by the military representative on September 3), the intermediate shaft of the gearbox was twisted and the tapered bearing was destroyed.
            The KV cooling system does not ensure normal engine operation due to high temperatures and oil in the radiator. On-board clutches fail due to overheating due to inadequate lubrication of the clutch bearings. The factory-introduced labyrinth seal does not retain lubricant.
            In tanks KV No. 3652, 3653, which passed control tests with mileage and were accepted by the military representative in September, when preparing to ship them to the military unit, a leak was detected through the oil seals of final drives.
            The engine air filter does not provide normal cleaning of air from dust, as a result of which the engine refuses to work when driving along a dusty dirt road.
            Drawings and technical specifications (TU) for the manufacture and acceptance of KV tanks by the factory have not yet been fully developed and the ABTU KA has not been approved. The lack of approved drawings and technical specifications complicates the work of military acceptance and hinders the deployment of mass production.
            It is especially necessary to note the presence of the main design flaws of the HF, which must be eliminated as soon as possible
            1) insufficient engine runtime without repair (80-100 hours), which reduces the combat readiness of the tank;
            2) poor visibility from the tank, inferior to medium German tanks.
            3) the difficulty of controlling a tank in battle.

            Plant reaction? The same as that of KhPZ regarding the T-34: all the shortcomings will be eliminated in the next model of the tank, revision of the design of serial vehicles will reduce the pace of production and delivery of tanks to the army.
            However, the reaction of the plant becomes absolutely clear if you know one small caveat: to eliminate most of the problems of the KV, he needed to completely replace the chassis and suspension. For they were originally calculated by the factory design bureau for a tank weight of 40 tons (which GABTU, by the way, knew about).

Wasn't it necessary to release the KV and T-34 until they finished it properly? Was there a time for that? Would it be easier for you if by the year 41 these tanks were not in the army? To keep them on the test sites?

          hi Take another look at the picture.

          Next to Ilyich is a young Red Army soldier in a pointed Budennovsky helmet. On the chest there are two Orders of the Red Banner. The arm is in a sling. The head and neck are bandaged. And the eyes and the whole face of the young man still shine with a smile, proud joy - Ilyich is next to him.

          Photo reporter L. Ya. Leonidov later said:

          - Six minutes later (after the phone call: “Come to shoot”) I was in the Kremlin, on the stairs of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee building. I see: Vladimir Ilyich is standing among the people in greatcoats and affectionately looking into the face of some young soldier, completely tied up with bandages. First thing I thought: recent wounds. Where is he from?

          I personally know well the young hero noticed by Lenin among other participants in the suppression of the Kronstadt rebellion. In the picture he is an ordinary volunteer soldier. Three years later we met with him in the same auditorium of the Academy of the General Staff of the Red Army (later - the Academy named after M.V. Frunze).

          Rafail Pavlovich Khmelnitsky - and this was him - became, on the recommendation of KE Voroshilov, a student [366] of the Academy a year before my arrival and was already considered an old-timer. He helped me to settle in a new place, to arrange urgent personal affairs.

          We met quite often from 1924 to 1927. We also met on party affairs, at the party committee, at meetings and conferences. In my second year of study, I was elected secretary of the united party committee of four academies (the Frunze Academy, Higher Academic Courses, the Plekhanov Economic Academy and the Faculty of Oriental Studies).

            Mikhail Petrovich Garussky (1894-1962) - Major General of the Soviet Army, participant in the Civil War, three times holder of the Order of the Red Banner of the RSFSR (1919, 1921, 1922).
            Distinguished himself during the repulsion of an attack of an enemy armored train near the village of Borovskaya, Petrograd province [1]. By order of the Revolutionary Military Council of the Republic No. 288 in 1919, platoon commander Mikhail Garusky was awarded the first Order of the Red Banner of the RSFSR [2].

            The second time he distinguished himself during a battle near the village of Nesterovichi, during which he was wounded, but continued to fight [1]. By order of the Revolutionary Military Council of the Republic No. 57 in 1921, battalion commander Mikhail Garusky was again awarded the Order of the Red Banner of the RSFSR [2].

            For the third time he distinguished himself during the suppression of the Kronstadt uprising[one]. By order of the Revolutionary Military Council of the Republic No. 1 in 65, the assistant commander of the regiment, Mikhail Garusky, was awarded the third Order of the Red Banner of the RSFSR [1922].

            That is, he took part in the suppression of the Kronstadt rebellion already being twice a cavalier. And he distinguished himself in battles. And he was wounded. Therefore, he is next to Lenin.
            And the photo is similar.

            Moreover, he was awarded the second order by order #57 from 17.02.1921 - just in time for the events, he could receive an order and be an elected delegate to the congress.
            And in the biography of Khmelnitsky there is no participation in the suppression of the rebellion and twice he became a cavalier at the end of March 1921 - order No. 93 of 23.03.1921/XNUMX/XNUMX. He physically could not receive the order at the time of photographing.
            Khmelnitsky:
            In December 1919 - January 1920 he was underground, then he was a political worker of the Agitation department of the Kharkov provincial military registration and enlistment office, from May 1920 he was a secretary of a member of the Revolutionary Military Council of the 1st Cavalry Army. He took part in battles with the Poles, the troops of Generals A.I.Denikin and P.N. Wrangel on the Southwestern and Southern Fronts, as well as against the rebels in the Ukraine.

              We remembered more than once the ice of Kronstadt, a March day in the Kremlin, photographing.

              - I, - said Khmelnitsky, - stood at the edge of the assembled group. I wanted to get closer to Lenin, but can you break through with with a tied hand? Fresh bandages, obviously, caught the eye of Vladimir Ilyich. I asked Kliment Efremovich: "Who is this wounded man?" “My secretary, Khmelnitsky,” Voroshilov replied.

              Vladimir Ilyich came up to me. Gently, so as not to disturb my hand, I hugged my right shoulder and asked how old I was when I joined the party where I fought. Where and under what circumstances it was wounded. I asked if it was scary to attack.

              - I, - continued Khmelnitsky, - said that really, Vladimir Ilyich, it was scary before starting to move on the ice of the Marquis puddle. Hardly anyone attacked in such conditions, when in front of you is a smooth ice field, where you can neither bury nor lie down. He said that we all understood that there was no turning back. We only thought about winning. Ilyich smiled: "You thought right." Somehow like a home, like a father touched the orders Of the Red Banner. Heading to the previous place, he invited me to stand beside him.

                On March 22 in Moscow V.I.Lenin received delegates of the X Congresswho returned after the battles of Kronstadt. He told them about the results of the work of the congress, talked with them about the battles with the rebels {637}. At the request of the delegates, Lenin was photographed with them - today this photograph is one of the most famous in Leninians.

                However, the third option is possible, since neither Garussky nor Khmelnitsky were delegates to the congress.

                  But the dark horse, in the official biography is not indicated, but in the award for the assault on Kronshatd he is, and it is indicated that this is his second order.
                  done - March 22, 1921.

                  ,,, I guess after the assault was awarded. The order was officially passed later; there is a difference of one day.

    Under the leadership of Kliment Efremovich, a tremendous amount of work was done to reorganize and build the Armed Forces of the USSR. He carried out work on technical re-equipment, development and expansion of the military education system, training and education of troops.

    1. By the time of the acceptance and surrender of the People’s Commissariat of Defense, there was no operational plan of war, operational plans, both general and private, were not developed and lacked.
    The General Staff has no data on the state of covering the borders. The decisions of the military councils of the districts, armies and the front on this issue are unknown to the General Staff.

    1. The People’s Commissariat does not have an accurately established actual strength of the Red Army at the time of admission. Accounting personnel due to the fault of the Main Directorate of the Red Army is in an extremely neglected state.

    3. Among the reserves liable for military service are 3 untrained people. The People's Commissariat of Defense has no training plan for them. Among the trained personnel are registered military reserves with insufficient training and in a number of specialties, the mobilization need for specialists is not covered. The People's Commissariat of Defense also does not have a plan to retrain specialists and retrain poorly trained personnel.

    The training of command personnel in military schools is unsatisfactory due to the poor quality of programs, disorganization of classes, insufficient workload of study time and especially weak field practical training. Improvement of the commanding staff of the cadre is not properly organized. The disadvantage of training programs for commanders in military educational institutions is: conducting classes mainly in classrooms, the lack of field studies, the saturation of programs with general subjects to the detriment of the military.

    1. Infantry:
    a) issues of organization, armament and training of infantry are not given due attention;
    b) the infantry is trained weaker than all other branches of the army;
    c) the accumulation of prepared stock of infantry is not enough;
    d) the infantry command staff is poorly prepared and has a large shortage;
    e) infantry weapons lag behind modern combat requirements and are not provided with mortars and machine guns.
    © Act on the acceptance of the USSR People's Commissariat of Defense Timoshenko S.K. from Voroshilov K.E.
    Etc.
    In general, the results of Voroshilov's leadership of the NPO were best manifested in the Soviet-Finnish war. According to the results victories where unsinkable first red officer fled from his post, signing the devastating NCO Acceptance Act, which looked more like an indictment.

    "Obviously, the difference in social origin affected"
    Samsonov, and that's too much. Since when did V. And Lenin become a swaggering gentleman?
    For some reason: "social origin" _ did not work in relation to: Kalina and Stalin.
    Ah, I forgot: Stalin was the bastard son of the prince, and Kalin in that case was a landowner? I think you need to think before you say this

    1 one could expect support from Voroshilov, for example, good supplies
    but such things as the Brusilov breakthrough or preparation for urban battles or new norms for stocks of shells for artillery (which Zhukov knocked out) should not be expected from him.
    Voroshilov fired really well, but the commander needs other skills.

      Why don't they "say" who is better? Because for this you need to have convolutions in your own brain. But in our own practice of "recent history" we have something else;
      worse than a fool with initiative, only the Banderlog, who in peacetime (!!) profiled their country in 1991 and 1993 instead of putting it in order. Well, then they began to judge, who was "worse than them" during the past wars. To sit and be silent and "sniff in two ...", but no, everything is itching to do it.
      There has probably never been such a shame "in a single country" since the creation of the world ...

    The myth of the stupid cavalryman is based on a more general, grandiose myth that resonates in the souls of the descendants of serfs, who have come to terms with the idea of ​​their own inferiority "according to Goebbels."

    They recognize and blindly believe that their country of more than 100 million people was "enslaved by Jewish groups", that there were "millions of people sentenced to the zone, it is not clear why and why", although such a game is impossible in a normal society. They admit that they "overwhelmed the Germans with their corpses", which could never have happened in any war. That one can simultaneously be a complete "idiot - cavalryman" and at the same time defeat a strong enemy.

      Horse yes, cavalry no.
      By the way, the Germans also used heavy draft horses, especially when they attacked at 41.

    Voroshilov's assessment by Marshal Zhukov: "Voroshilov remained a dilettante in military affairs to the end: he could not keep up with its development, he could not capture all its versatility, and most importantly, he did not catch the development prospects." Indeed, Voroshilov's speech in 1938 is known, in which he, a passionate lover of cavalry, a conservative of military affairs, seriously asserted that: “The Red cavalry is still a victorious and crushing armed force and can and will solve big tasks on all combat fronts ". Against this background, the fact that one of the legendary tanks of the Great Patriotic War - KV - bore his name looks ironic. By the way, this name was given to the tank by Joseph Vissarionovich, who respected the People's Commissar very much.

        Stalin forgave Voroshilov for failures that would cost anyone else their lives. As a people's commissar, Voroshilov was unable to prepare the troops for the war with Finland. At the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, the commander-in-chief of the North-Western direction allowed the blockade of Leningrad. In Voroshilov, Stalin valued personal loyalty. The reason is that dictators need decorative figures that, with their insignificance, would set off the majestic figure of the leader. Voroshilov, indeed, is the only one with whom the General Secretary was on the "you", admitted in communication party nicknames - "Koba" and "Volodin", allowed in your office, bang your fist on the table and break out in abuse.

      "S.M.Budyonny was the commander-in-chief of the North Caucasian Front, and Sevastopol was not a hotel front"
      during the assault on Sevastopol, Budyonny commanded the reserve front, this is quite far from the Crimea. your grandfather was commanded by a sergeant, an extreme. He could see the weekday only in a photo in the newspaper, he could not know anything about his plans and orders, because the weekday did not order him. how could he judge Budyonny's actions elsewhere, even as a Marine? and where does the general Budyonny, if the article is about Voroshilov?
