October 2 marks 130 since the birth of Boris Mikhailovich Shaposhnikov, Marshal of the Soviet Union, an outstanding military and state leader of our country, a military theorist whose ideas, views and works have not lost relevance so far.

Boris Mikhailovich Shaposhnikov made a significant contribution to the theory and practice of building the USSR Armed Forces, to strengthening and improving them. In the most famous work “The Brain of the Army”, he defined the main provisions on the nature of the future war, deeply revealed the features of army leadership in the war and gave a clear idea of ​​the role, functions and structure of the General Staff as a body of the Supreme Command for command of the Armed Forces.

The correctness of his conclusions was fully confirmed by the Great Patriotic War.

On the official website of the Ministry of Defense in the section "History Wars ”posted a personal page dedicated to B.M. Shaposhnikov, where you can familiarize yourself with the biography of an outstanding Russian military theorist, his writings, and the memories of him by his combat comrades.

We are sure that other materials in this section will also cause undoubted interest among true experts and lovers of the military history of the Fatherland. Here is a far from complete list of topics covered here: “The Secret Battle of Stalingrad”, “How Hitler's Poison Plans were Frustrated,” “Preventing Typhoon,” “Barbarossa's Covering Operation,” “Who Started the 1812 Patriotic War of the Year: Truth and Figures "," Special Office of the Russian Empire "and many others.

    GREAT man !!! May God give Russia such talents!
    Not for nothing that in the 41st I.V. Stalin only named B.M. Shaposhnikov by his first name and patronymic, and the rest by his last name, he felt the strength of spirit and intellect of NSS-41.
    Eternal memory of Boris Mikhailovich ...!

      And not a Hero of the Soviet Union. That was the attitude to the awards, not like at the present time. Brezhnev sleeps with trinkets lizoblyudov.

    Great theorist. I read his works, including "The Brain of the Army", thanks traitor Rezun for the reference to the opinion of Boris Mikhailovich Shaposhnikov, it was very interesting to read Shaposhnikov and the works of other theoreticians, for example, Triandfilov ("The nature of modern operations" and "Interaction between the Western and Southwestern Fronts during the summer offensive of the Red Army on the Vistula in 1920" ). Against this background, Tukhachevsky is perceived as a supernumerary sergeant training teacher.

    One of the best military leaders and general staff of the USSR. The real brain of the army!
    The memory of such people always lives for a very long time!
    Would Boris Mikhailovich just say about the case of a beating of a soldier in the Kantemirov’s division (or brigade) ?? Would you believe what is happening?

    But isn't Shaposhnikov a Hero of the Soviet Union? It’s strange.

    One of literally a few survivors who served as an officer in the imperial army. The rest of the "former" officers and generals were shot from 1930 to 1938.

      It’s not your truth, they shot those who climbed into politics, or were at the wrong time, in the wrong place (that is, they came under distribution for being close to someone or something). For example, Budyonny (and he is far from alone) was not just a former tsarist soldier or officer, he was both one and the other, but also a full gentleman of the St. George Bant. It’s as if to briefly explain ... a person deserved all the degrees of the St. George Cross as a soldier, and then all the St. George Orders as an officer ... But people used to be ... If you dilute them very much with water, you can get tungsten ...

      Floodish again, you fool. And when you calm down, you have already been pointed out your lies so many times that it’s even ridiculous to read your comments. And even the first action, on the dismissal, and not on the destruction of the former, was undertaken by the traitor-Tukhachevsky. The so-called operation "Spring". Moreover, not all of them really turned out to be "in place" and by the Second World War, many of them were already retired by age, like this "all of them were killed by the bloody gebnya."

      Go to the RKKA.RU website to see who, in what positions and for what they were sentenced. And some of the "former", such as SS Alekseev or Ruzsky, are also personally guilty of the February coup of 1917.

        For what they were sentenced, and so it is clear, everyone in 1937-38 rowed on the 58th: counter-revolutionary terrorist activities, espionage, failure to report, etc. As a rule, they hung up the entire "bouquet", because for exposing an agent of several intelligence services and a participant in a large-scale conspiracy, the NKVD officers received bonuses in service. And when they commanded "hang up", they also took on them, the poor.

        Site rkka.ru section Encyclopedia the most complete lists of executed military commanders of the Red Army with brief biographies, it indicates who and who served in the Republic of Ingushetia.
        Errors are there, but insignificant, within 1-2%.
        From brigade commander to marshal, 5 and a half hundred is rude.

      You're lying as always. Vasilevsky, Govorov ..., by the way, the last until the 20 year he served at Kolchak.

        I didn’t have the honor of drinking with you for brotherhood, but oh well. And now I will publicly ask you to clarify what I "lied" about, otherwise I will have to accuse you of lying. Here is my phrase regarding Shaposhnikov:

        "One of literally a few survivors who served as an officer in the imperial army."

        You brought Govorov and Vasilevsky. Total counted three. Three - this is units, not tens and not hundreds. So I'm waiting.

      Turn to the facts.

      In the Red Army, 75 thousand former officers served, while in the White Army about 35 thousand out of the 150 thousandth corps of officers of the Russian Empire.
      In the spring of 1919, in the battles of Yamburg, the White Guards captured and executed the 19 rifle division of the former Major General of the Imperial Army, AP Kommersh, and executed. Nikolaev. The same fate befell in 1919 of the commander of the 55 rifle division of the former Major General A.V. Stankevich, in 1920, the commander of the 13 rifle division of the former Major General A.V. Sobolev. Remarkably, before the death, all the generals were offered to go to the side of the whites, and all refused. The honor of a Russian officer is more precious than life.
      By itself, the noble class was almost entirely in the White camp, otherwise it could not be. You should not look for the princes Golitsyn, Trubetskoy, Shcherbatov, Obolensky, Dolgorukov, count Sheremetev, Orlov, Novosiltsev and among less significant figures of the white movement. They were sitting "boyars" in the rear, in Paris and Berlin, and waited for some of their lackeys to bring others on the lasso. Did not wait ...
      So the howls of Malinin about the lieutenants Golitsyn and the Cornets of Obolensky are just fiction. They did not exist in nature ...

    He began to call Rokossovsky by name and patronymic after the brilliantly carried out operation of Bagration to destroy the army group center in Belarus. That is, that Stalin would call a man SO it was necessary to DESERVE it.
