Military Review

"Give Kiev!". Kiev will be liberated! (Part 2)

28
In any war, in addition to fighting, marches, defeats and victories, there is another side. It is a simple life.


The lives of ordinary soldiers who forge victory and die on the battlefield.
And it does not matter - this is your soldier or enemy soldier.
In this story, I will talk about the everyday side of the militaryhistorical reconstruction, because it, as a rule, the bulk of the audience does not see.

First, about the life of the Red Army



People relate differently to renovations and reenactors. Some do not understand this hobby, some are picky and complain about well-groomed faces and a clean, unworn shape, some accept it as it is.

In short, I will say the following about this - for these people it is a great hobby, like photography, traveling, snowboarding or football for some. Modernity faces and some neatness of form? We live in the 2013 year, not in the 1943, so it’s worth taking it as it is. And the historical accuracy of the form, signs of distinction, weapons and the various little things that they look for authentic, make replicas and sew themselves. And this does not mean that people should wear rags, as some believe. Believe me, by the end of the battle the form looks very dirty, often burned and torn. Having returned to their usual life, people repair it, wash it and prepare it for the next reconstruction. In the post about the fight you will see how everything happens.

In this post I will show the everyday side of life for people passionate about historical reconstruction.
I know, I was distracted, but I wanted to start with this little preface.

2. The rise in the army, in 6.30 in the morning. First verification, then morning exercises.
Each unit determines for itself how accurately it follows the service, the daily routine and how it happens in the army. There are units in which this is all very strict.


3. Soldier, do not yawn!


4. Marines are being squeezed out while ordinary infantry are telling bikes


4. After charging time, the soldiers have to tidy themselves up, as well as their uniforms. Construction soon


5. The soldiers are hemmed. The cleanliness of the collar will be checked on the construction


6. Guns gunner. Epaulettes Rifle. A gun


7. Duty company in the early morning in the kitchen. Where are the soldiers without peeling potatoes?


8. Breakfast time...


9. Even samovars with boots can be found


10. The queue for soldier porridge. Unlike the soldiers of the Red Army, the Czech soldiers do not have bowlers, but bowls with mugs


11. Czech officer eats from the pan, where he cooked his own breakfast on the fire


12. To make porridge tastier


13. Before building


14. Team "Staanovis" and everyone is in a hurry


15. Fighters make a plan for the day. Today is the rehearsal of the main battle that will take place the next day.


16. Caps, helmets and overcoats


18. Signalers are pulling the phone cable


19. Sappers make crossing to the other side


20. New girls in the medical battalion are taught to transport the wounded


21. In the war for many, this bag with a red cross became a salvation


22. Gun cleaning.


23. Mosin rifle bolt.


24. After working out all the elements of the battle, you can remove the knapsacks and relax before dinner.


25. And smoke ...


26. Where are the soldiers without pussy with tobacco

27. Someone was lucky. They will draw the artist


28. Someone is sleeping ...


29. ... someone plays chess ...


30. And the commanders are satisfied with the preparation and rehearsal. The next day, thousands of people will see the fight, in which about 1,5 thousand people will take part.


And now - the Germans

In contrast to the camp of the Red Army, which was based in a tent camp, German troops stationed in trenches and dugouts.

That November 1943 of the year, German troops occupied defensive positions on the left bank of the Dnieper, entrenching themselves tightly, and Soviet troops waged an offensive war, constantly changing their deployment, which explains the difference between the camps of the two opposing sides in this reconstruction.
If you ask me how much more pictures there are from the German camp, I will answer this way. First, it is much more difficult to get into it, even to a participant in the reconstruction, not in German form, than to the Soviet camp; secondly, the Germans have much more different interesting little things, because their preparation for war and the forethought of everything from buttons to weapons was much higher than ours; and thirdly, in my opinion, it is much more difficult to organize your life and life in the trenches than in a huge military tent ...

In general, see for yourself.



2. So, the Germans live in the trenches and dugouts. And I must say that they settled there is not even very bad, with a certain comfort, they crack their sausage and are perfectly calm and are preparing to repel the attacks of the Red Army.


3. But ... to settle in, they had to work well with their hands and shovels


4. First, dig trenches, combine them into a complex defensive system, arrange communication lines, organize defensive, residential cells, team dugouts, kitchens, warehouses, etc.

5. In addition to the shovel, a lot of work had to be done with another trench tool - saws and axes

6. Germans, such Germans. That child labor is used. The guy is a member of the Ukrainian liberation army, which actively assisted the Germans in 1943-1945.


7. The morning did not work ....


8. Here is a living cell in one of the lines of defense. This is the 8 man’s tent, which consists of a pit, rafters and a German raincoat, called Zeltbahn, fastened together as a roof.


9. This is a living cell on a 4 person inside. The canopy - four zelban, inside a small stove-stove, which was transported in a wagon train, bed, blankets and firewood


10. A simple soldier belongings. So they lived. In the next reconstruction I will try to live not in the Russian camp, as usual, but in such conditions. It will be an interesting experience and stories.


11. The second "room".


12. German soldier resting in a residential dugout


13. Morning coffee. Where a nurse, there are many experienced soldiers and recruits


14. In German trenches


15. One of the headquarters cells. Here is the site of communication.


16. Reconstructors, tell me what kind of receiver


17. And this is the main communication center. Interestingly, the equipment is functioning!


18. Officer demonstrates his work


19. Wires, headphones, pen for Morse code


20. Near the shield reviews and suggestions poster with pictures.


21. Axes in the deck, saws and shovels to the side, the Germans have lunch and rest according to schedule. Despite everything. Ordnung.


22. Our carrots are eaten ....


23. And some are also baked pancakes, taking away from the aunt's milk on the way to the camp


24. Tea and chocolate


25. Here love the stew


26. Eat, eat, not long left ...


27. And talk ???


28. Fighter of the Ukrainian liberation army under the command of Omelyanovich-Pavlenko


29. And someone does not eat, thinks sad thoughts ... Clamp them on all frogs


30. The soldier sleeps - the service goes


31. Two-chamber German assistant girl


32. Looks like ....
"Give Kiev!". Kiev will be liberated! (Part 2)


33. In the first line of defense. There are sentries and all the weapons at the ready.


34. Lanterns. The night is coming soon


35. Dish shelf


36. Wardrobe


37. In the hall.


38. So the Germans trampled our land


39. The policemen. There are such characters here.


40. Entrance to the warehouse of one of the units.


41. Here are ammunition, fuel, drinking water and a bike.


42. The bike is interesting, this is the original pre-war issue. I will tell about it later


43. Frozen .... In the morning it was not hot


44. Brave German assistant


45. On the bank of the Dnieper patrols go. Better not to fall


46. At nightfall, gendarmes are everywhere. Actually there is a bandwidth mode and the red ones are captured)


47. At least document check




49. Build. Tomorrow fight.


50. In the meantime, the Germans light lanterns and enjoy a quiet evening.


51. Tomorrow they will be swept away from here to such a mother.

      I'm afraid to make a mistake, but in my opinion this is a replica of a panther based on a Soviet tank with a modified body shape.

    Unlike the Red Army camp, which was based in a tent camp, German troops were located in trenches and dugouts .... German troops occupied defensive positions on the left bank of the Dnieper, densely entrenched, and Soviet troops waged an offensive war, constantly changing their location, which explains the difference between the camps two warring parties on this reconstruction.

    Yeah .., began to be ... The Germans were sitting in cozy dugouts and waiting.
    But the Red Army constantly ran along the front and they did not have time to dig trenches and dugouts? Yes, finally, they scored on field fortification. So with tents and ran. Even to attack!
    Well now explainable hundreds of thousands losses on the Dnieper in the first part of your story.
    PS But the photo shoot is good!

            "Leibstandart" and "Reich" did not oppose the capture of Kiev. They pulled up later (mid-November) with the aim of a counterattack against our troops, who took Kiev and developed their success westward towards Zhitomir.

      Polish nationalists attacked the Russian embassy on November 11. As RIA Novosti reports with reference to the Russian Embassy in Warsaw, the participants of the "Independence March" action threw fires and Molotov cocktails on the territory of the diplomatic mission. Thus, Independence Day was celebrated in Poland today.

        That business then buy a ticket and go ahead to the procession so you can eat right away in Lviv and start from the station, and there, even to the mayor of Lviv.

    I respect Anashkevich as a photographer. He is an excellent photographer and blogger, but I don’t like such reconstruction. Maybe I'm wrong, of course ... but ... it should be remembered.
