Military Review

Mother-General, without whom, perhaps, there would be no Victory

102



As you know, in May 1938, Stalin transformed the Far Eastern Military District and the Special Far Eastern Army into the Far Eastern Front. And in July-August 1938 of the year on Lake Hassan, this union received a baptism of fire. But Stalin was in anger: the Japanese were not completely defeated, and our losses were very high. This was the reason for the mass and protracted repression among the commanders of the Far East.

The first front commander, Vasily Blucher, was arrested and died in the Lefortovo prison, then, in January, 41, he was shot and his replacement, General Stern. The new front commander was appointed Iosif Apanasenko. He was known about him in the army as foul-mouthed, tyrant and ignorant. And in appearance he was cut down like an ax.

However, the officers soon noted this man’s colossal natural mind. Apanasenko read a lot and was able to evaluate the proposals of his subordinates. He was very brave. And never jeopardized subordinates.

Among other things, Apanasenko found that there is no reliable highway along the Trans-Siberian Railway. It was enough for the Japanese to blow up several bridges or tunnels in order to deprive the army of both freedom of maneuver and supplies. General Apanasenko immediately ordered the construction of a dumping road with a length of almost ... a thousand kilometers. The deadline for this enormous work was set as short as possible - five months.

And imagine the road from Khabarovsk to Belogorsk was built by September 1 1941.

By the way, this is part of the very long-suffering federal highway Chita-Khabarovsk, which cannot be completed until now, in 70 years.

By the way, by the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, the number of the Far Eastern Front was 704 thousands of people against seven hundred thousand Japanese. In July-August, several rifle brigades were deployed from the Far East to the Western fronts. But it was only a small part.

The Germans had already celebrated the "capture of Moscow", and the Japanese troops were actively and aggressively preparing for the attack. The Red Army needed fresh divisions here and there. General Apanasenko resolutely declared to Stalin that he was ready to send at the same time nearly three dozen units. These are actually all combat ready units.

The transfer of troops began immediately. In November, the 41-th Far Eastern divisions already fought near Moscow.

And what about the naked Far East? Who here defended the country from the attack of Japan? It turned out that Apanasenko, in the same positions as the divisions leaving for the West, put new units, moreover, under the same numbers.

It was an infinitely bold personal decision of him - amateur formations were strictly prohibited under the threat of execution.

The general developed an activity unprecedented for a military man. He organized new military production, restored the military state farms. Joseph Rodionovich returned almost all capable commanders to the army from places of detention. Fortunately, most of the repressed were here in the Far East.

Protests by the chiefs of the concentration camps, denunciations of Apanasenko from the leadership of GlavDalstroi were literally a torrent to Beria. But Stalin was silent. And the general with his decision expanded the training of recruits, conscripts arrived in parts of the Far Eastern Front from all the republics.

And in the east of Russia, 50-55-year-old men began to be called into service. The commander of the Far Eastern Front became the main carrier of all the party and economic power of a vast region. The defense of the base cities - Khabarovsk, Vladivostok, Blagoveshchensk - was also strengthened. The east of Russia turned into a real fortress.

And Japan preferred to maintain armed neutrality. They were bound by the power of the Far Eastern Front. But Apanasenko all the time asked Stalin to send him to the army.

And only at the end of May 1943, the general was sent to the Voronezh Front. Just three months, Joseph Rodionovich managed to make war. 5 August 43, at the height of the Battle of Kursk, the general was killed by a shell fragment.

He was buried in his homeland, in Stavropol. No monuments in Khabarovsk Joseph Apanasenko not delivered. In the official stories World War II the name of this army general is not mentioned even once.

    Yes, we knew very little about him, and his role was great. This is the containment of the Japanese and Siberian divisions near Moscow.

      It is necessary to continue the historical research of the Second World War. This will help current generations to better feel their roots, teach to respect the unprecedented exploits of their fathers and grandfathers. This is a very necessary job!
      Actually this is the education of patriotism in the young generation.

          Apanasenko I.R. was very closely acquainted with I.V. Stalin and were even at YOU. Therefore, he was very much forgiven. Although the mind and talent of this general to deny, it would be foolish and not respectful to his memory.

          The difference between the “tunic” and the “jacket” is that the first one carries out the order and takes the initiative only for the successful implementation of it. And the second one breaks the gag and in the process of activity can forget - but for what he does it all.
          If the first may face the Tribunal, then the second - a reprimand.
          You catch why the author focused our attention on the initiative of the general.
          And I was very interested in the phrase - "The commander of the Far Eastern Front has become the main carrier of all the party and economic power of the vast region."
          If this is not said for the red words, then for usurpation of power, without a corresponding order “from above” - the basement of a bullet in the back of the head.
          The CPSU (b) was not going to share power with anyone.

      Life and activity of I.R. Apanasenko is very widely known - this is one of the divisional commanders of the 1st Cavalry Army!
      But the author sometimes falls into inaccuracies.
      Apanasenko could not, without authorization from above (to the very top!), Release any repressed officers and appoint them to posts in the troops subordinate to him.
      Well, and about the formation of divisions instead of those sent to the west "of their own free will" - this is generally childhood.
      The author does not represent the "process itself" of this case. Gene. Apanasenko had neither material capabilities, nor power for such events.
      It’s another matter that he was pleased, following the instructions of the military-political leadership of the country.
      In all likelihood, he was a typical representative of his era, like many generals of that time, and an extraordinary person.
      Well, he ended his life's journey by fulfilling his duty to the end ...

    The author is a huge plus.
    The article is useful for educating those who still claim that Stalin, before his stomach aches, was afraid of the Japanese and was afraid to expose the Far Eastern Front.
    There would be a legend about how Sorge warned, and Stalin did not believe him, in figs, to the basket!

    If I am not mistaken, then Apanasenko made two sending troops. The divisions for guarding the theater of the Far East were already from the third set

      Moreover, Apanasenko argued with Stalin more than once! And he repeatedly recognized his innocence (however, not only he argued with Stalin). But Sorge is generally a dark person, and what is there and how it was, we are unlikely to find out.

            wassat Why I read and know, for example, Zhukov’s Memoirs and many others, they simply do not have answers to elementary questions. For example, in G. Zhukov's memoirs on the map, on June 22, the Reich troops and their positions are indicated in sufficient detail, and ours only by districts. You can check. The question is why the commander of the general staff was too lazy to indicate our concentration of troops in memoirs in detail. He that did not know? Not too lazy, after a dozen pages, Zhukov indicated the composition of the districts. Put instead of Zhukov on the map. It turned out according to Suvorov-Rezun. And who is the last resort? Or, on June 22, we had 16 cannon guns, 600 guns per fascist tank, not counting another 3 guns on our tanks. And why such a result. Or they talk about the suddenness of the Reich’s strike. But our fleet’s joke was ready at 20 a.m. and successfully repulsed a surprise strike, but for the ground army it was sudden and the Reich defeated it in a couple of weeks. As for the fleet, the strike is not sudden, but for the army it’s sudden and most importantly it’s true. And what the official story writes about this, banal nonsense, and Suvorov the truth.

              Hard case. But is it nothing that the guns themselves do not shoot, and the tanks do not drive? That the vast majority of divisions were only on paper? If you seriously believe that the division appears immediately after signing the order on its formation, then I see no reason to communicate with you.
              In 1941, no one doubted that there would be a war, this is a fact. Stalin was not going to attack Hitler, this is also a fact. It was simply not necessary for the leadership of the USSR. And without war, there was enough work. But for the West, primarily for Britain, the war between the USSR and the Third Reich was vital. It was for Hitler that they brought to power, precisely to ensure the material and technical needs of the Wehrmacht, Austria and Czechoslovakia were successively surrendered. To ensure contact, they betrayed Poland, and then surrendered France, so that God forbid the Wehrmacht did not suffer significant losses, and the USSR did not receive another year of delay.

    Somehow quickly we forget the exploits of our people and our heroes. But the "good" film "BASTARS, Staffaf" about the exploit of crime in the years of the Second World War has been shot. A little more, and we will set up a monument to criminal authorities. And Heroes of Russia, to award


    how you ghouls are already sickened by the same thing - the same bastards and penal battalion are better than nothing at all. If so smart - make the movie yourself

    Moreover, even these films can be called patriotic, and the penal battalion is generally an excellent series, but there is a lot of fiction, but at least the director did not hesitate to make a film about those whom it is not customary to talk about (for the author of the quote - there were not so many crime composed), and if the series was watched to the end, we would see a listing of all the penal battalions

    the white tiger came out - again I do not like, like a fantasy

    even Mr. N. but from Mikhalkov, his weary of the sun and then carry a patriotic note

    if you want historical films, watch films about the war shot in the USSR, it’s better they won’t take off anyway, not those budgets, not those directors, not that audience - even if you start to pay close attention to them, you will also notice a lot of mistakes and inaccuracies

          This episode is pure plagiarism from the Soviet film "Before Dawn" 1989. There Mironov plays the main role of the NKVD lieutenant accompanying the prisoners to the rear.
          And there’s a Soviet film about the 1989 Gu-Ha penal battalion.

        The commander of the penalty is a FALSE!
        On the TV channel "Russia" was a serial film "Shtrafbat". You can’t keep silent about such shows. FALSE must expose! Fortunately, direct witnesses are still alive - in the photo - a retired colonel, a resident of Kharkov (now - Peter) Alexander Vasilyevich Pyltsyn, who passed the last years of the war as the commander of the penalty battalion ...
        Further, I quote an article by Natalia Eremeytseva, who read an interview with the colonel on the Internet:
        == "... I also asked" for what "?
        And they answered me that I was raising the question incorrectly - not “for what, but why”? -
        - you will help fines with blood to wash away their guilt before the Motherland ...
        ... the discipline in the penal battalion was very high.
        For those who received 10 years of imprisonment at the verdict of the military tribunals, the imprisonment was replaced by THREE months of fines, from 5 to 8 years - TWO months, up to 5 years - ONE month ...
        . ..Our fighters were often awarded the Order of Glory ...
        ... having won in the penal battalion from 1943 until the end of the war, I DARE TO APPROVE,
        that there was NEVER behind our penal battalion there were no detachments or other intimidating forces.
        Of course, I can’t talk about all the penal units, however, after the war I met many who fought in penal battalions and penal companies and never heard of the detachments behind them. "
        N. Yeremeytseva writes: "In fact, for 15 years the present government has been waging an undeclared war with the USSR, with a great era. Apparently, in order to cover up its total betrayal, today's wretchedness, the total theft of officials and the unscrupulousness of their corrupt servants."
        And he warns that one should not forget the old truth: if you shoot from the gun into the past, then the future will shoot a gun at us.
        I believe that comments on this note are not needed.
        Those who saw the movie "Shtrafbat", they will help to understand the truth. For those who have not seen the cooking of Mr. Dostaley, I’ll say - do not waste time on the next libel.
        On November 27, in the newspaper Sovetskaya Rossiya, Alexander Vasilyevich PYLTSYN himself wrote:
        "As a man who passed his part of the Great Patriotic War precisely in the officer’s penal battalion under the very oath that he took on allegiance to the Soviet Motherland, I testify that everything heaped in this film is completely inconsistent with historical truth."
        I want to finish again by calling for help now retired Major General A.V. Pyltsyn.
        In a letter to the general director of the Ostankino television company (published in Sovetskaya Rossiya), he, returning the fee sent, writes:
        "... you were not satisfied with the true truth about the penal battalion ... and you tried to emasculate the text of my interview, ... and then completely lost it, because it did not coincide with the point of view of the authors of the film who did not see the war and your personal .. .
        The film "Shtrafbat" and a lot more in the media, including on television, is the political order of the current falsifiers of the history of the Great Patriotic War, and if we take it more broadly, the defilers of the history of the entire Soviet period of our country. Neither my conscience, nor memory, nor the pride and honor of an officer can be sold for any Judas.
        Therefore, Alexei Viktorovich, I cannot accept either your gratitude “for cooperation”, or, especially, your thousand “pieces of silver”.
        It remains to add: A. Pyltsyn’s book “A free kick or how an officer’s penal battalion reached Berlin” was already published in the second edition, it was awarded the First Literary Prize of the St. Petersburg City Legislative Assembly ...
        A very long time ago, I.V. Stalin remarked:
        "The truth is guarded by battalions of lies." But a lie, as the Russian proverb says, has short legs.
        ADDITION - November 2007 Just now on TV once again showed the broadcast of the series “Shtrafbat”.
        So, it makes sense to continue the conversation about this filmmaking.
        Here is the material from the Internet:

      Dostalevsky “Shtrafbat” is not the first-born in coverage of the topic of fines. At sunset of the USSR, the film “Gu-Ga” was shot on a similar topic. The film is more serious and more reliable than the crazy fantasies of Volodarsky. There must be a military consultant for the film.

        I watched the film, it’s quite good. Only the descriptions for this film are killed, for example: "The Great Patriotic War. Due to the shortage of well-trained fighters, the Soviet command uses" cannon fodder "- deserters, imprisoned for real crime or denunciation. They all serve in of penal battalions and they know why a month of service is equal to ten years in prison. Because not everyone will live even this short term. "Or:" The film opens the curtain on another creature of the Stalin regime - battalions of fines from the Great Patriotic War, the month of service in which was equated to ten years in prison. `Gu-ha` is a film about those who, spilling their blood, risking their own lives daily, paid for the mistakes of staff strategists." Or: "During the Great Patriotic War, there were units in the Soviet army that weren’t there were analogues in history. These were the so-called “penal battalions" .., About those who went on the attack first, with almost no chance of survival. About those who without hesitation they sent to the most terrible breakthroughs, to German machine guns ... "

    Thanks to the author for the article and the photo. The memory of the Hero of Socialist Labor Fedor Trofimovich Morgun published in his book “Long Before the Salutes” indicates that the general was a brave and talented leader and boldly said that he thinks regardless of faces. It was clear from everything that our short, clear, business meeting was coming to the end. They put strong tea on the table. Stalin asked about the life of the Far East. I answered. And suddenly the question to Apanasenko followed: "How many anti-tank guns do you have?" The general answered immediately. I don’t remember the number specifically, but I remember that he called some minuscule in comparison with what the Red Army already had. "Weights and these guns to be sent!" - quietly, but clearly ordered Stalin. And then suddenly a glass of tea, standing in front of Apanasenko, flew down the long table to the left, the chair under the general seemed to jump back. Apanasenko bounced off the table and shouted: “What are you doing? What are you doing? !! Your mother is alright! .. And if the Japanese attack, what will I defend the Far East with these stripes ?!” and hit himself on the sides with his hands. from the post, shoot, I will not give up the guns! "

    I was stupefied. Though everything went round in my head, the thought pierced: "This is the end. Now he will call the people of Beria, and we will both die." And here I was again struck by the behavior of Stalin: "Calm down, calm down, comrade Apanasenko! Is it worth it to worry about these guns? Keep them to yourself."

    Saying goodbye, Apanasenko asked to join the army - to the front.

    “No, no,” the Supreme Commander-in-Chief replied amiably. “Those who are brave and experienced like you need parties in the Far East.”
    General was bold, that's for sure

            What are you talking about? In fact, the sane ammunition for anti-tank rifles BS-41 was developed only in July 1941, when the steel core was replaced with a metal-ceramic one. That's when armor penetration became at a level, then they began to develop PTRD and PTRS.

And the fact that the Japanese know how to use tanks, they proved it at Halkin Gol, where their tank regiment acted very bravely and skillfully, and their failure was due precisely to the fact that the Red Army units were well equipped with anti-tank missiles ...

Joseph Apanasenko is a man who largely influenced the outcome of the Great Patriotic War, who did a lot to ensure that our army could win, even if it was far from the front line. I recall the story of the officer of the operational department of the DF, who told how the dispatch of units and formations to the West was organized, this was done very simply and efficiently, but as a result of this, FULLY staffed and trained units went to the front, not for nothing that they were so appreciated by our front-line commanders . The name of this general should be on a par with the generals - the winners ...

    And Apanasenko came up with "cuirassiers" :). Normal iron cuirass (only in front, which corresponded to the spirit of the times) for ... foot soldiers! The Germans were very embarrassed. Imagine: you are sitting in a trench, and dudes are running at you, and bullets are bouncing off them! When close, you can shoot down a grenade, and when 100 meters or more, only from a cannon or anti-tank gun!
    This is not fiction! In fact, wagons with cuirasses arrived from the Far East after him. The personnel was very saved.

    Few people know, but Apanasenko distinguished himself in 1925 when, in order to restore order in Chechnya, an army operation was carried out to liquidate gangs (according to the modern counter-terrorist operation. Apanasenko's group of 1922 bayonets and 480 sabers with 39 machine guns and 6 mountain guns was assigned the task of disarming the Sharoevsky region where Imam Gotsinsky was hiding. The Chechens, accustomed to the weakness of the Soviet authorities at that time, prepared for resistance, especially the residents of Zumsoy, Imam Shamilev’s aul. Assessing the strength of Apanasenko, the leaders of the gangs sent the negotiators to him offering “protection” for passing his convoy. But he was in talks He didn’t enter, saying that “the Red Army doesn’t need protection, which anyone who dares to attack can be sure of it.” Going to Zamsoy, Apanasenko demanded that the residents surrender their weapons and extradite Shamilev and other bandits. Naturally, he was ignored. Then the village suffered shelling and residents began to surrender weapons, and Shamil in with the immediate environment fled to the mountains. Having blown up the houses belonging to the Shamilev family (altogether 119 gang members' houses were blown up during the operation) Apanasenko presented an ultimatum on the surrender of Gotsinsky and Shamilev. For 2 days, 22 pounds of bombs were dropped on the area (8 aircraft took part in the operation) on September 5, 1925, Gotsinsky was issued by the residents of the area, and on September 7 Shamilev surrendered.

      There is a very good author N. Grodno. He wrote the book "The First Chechen". In it, he fairly documented described the history of the difficult relations between Russia and Chechnya. Try to find her.

    And another interesting fact from the life of Apanasenko - during the 1st World War, he became a complete cavalier of St. George and was promoted to officer for courage. That was such a man.

    And with the guns Apanasenko is not quite right, it would be necessary to give part, and instead of guns more anti-tank rifles, the Japanese had weak tanks, and holes could be made in them with guns.


    yeah, or use armor-piercing cartridges for small arms, and shoot down planes with slingshots laughing

    I have heard about General Apanasenko more than once from my father, who served in the Far East from 1940 to 1950 and fought in the 2nd Far East (rising from the rank and file of the railway troops to the captain of howitzer artillery). Joseph Radionovich was really incredibly rude and cool at assault - father I witnessed how he knocked out of the nursery in the ass, who had fallen asleep in the stable for the last one, and after an hour he stuffed his face with the foreman of their battery, which left the Red Army men after working in the water in the cold without changing into underwear and heating. Some of them later whispered how the general who inspected their part forced them to eat the entire command of the unit in a full pot of disgusting borscht for lunch, and the cook poured a tank of swill brewed on his head ... And at the same time, his father approvingly commented on the debilitating, but so important for the Far Eastern theater works on road and large-scale fortification construction, which was practiced by almost all military units and civilians throughout the first military year. In his opinion, military history undeservedly circumvented this not so prominent, but very sensible general. And, according to the stories, he died due to neglect of the rules of military camouflage - the Germans hit a clearly visible motorcade, quite justifiably considering it as the retinue of retinues of senior military commanders. History does not recognize the subjunctive mood and therefore we have no right to judge how Joseph Radionovich would have shown himself in the remaining years of the war.

    the complete defeat of the Japanese did not work

    The author gives the impression of a person either tongue-tied, or completely incompetent in what he writes about.

    Yes, the events of 1938 revealed the poor combat readiness of the Far Eastern Military District, the slovenliness and irresponsibility of some high commanders, and the poor training of the troops entrusted to them.
    Nevertheless, the victory of the Red Army at Lake Hasan was FULL: the Japanese FULLY left the territory of the USSR, and territorial claims were FULLY rejected.

    But the complete defeat ... What does the author believe as such? He believes that it was necessary to start a big war in order to destroy the military units of the aggressors on their territory?

    First front commander Vasily Blucher was arrested and died in Lefortovo prison

    The author is clearly influenced by fairy tales about the bloody repression and innocent victims.

    In reality, V. Blucher is guilty, according to the Criminal Code, of 2 serious crimes:
    1. He allowed a serious drop in the combat efficiency entrusted to him under the command of the Far Eastern Military District.
    2. When the Japanese occupied part of Soviet territory, and the first attempts to smoke them from there failed, Blucher proposed to acknowledge Japanese claims and calm down on this.

    For any of these two crimes, he fully deserved his death penalty. And given his close friendship with Tukhachevsky, it is quite possible and the third crime of the same level - involvement in the conspiracy.

    In the official history of World War II, the name of this army general is not mentioned even once.

    Scandals, intrigues, discoveries, sensations! laughing
    The author is clearly drawn to this genre. How else to cut down more reader attention, less trying to do this? repeat

    In reality, the author questions:
    1. What does the author consider the "official history of WWII"?
    2. Where did the author himself get the "sensations" published here?
    3. The author himself admits that, despite a considerable amount of useful organizational measures, the direct combat merit of the gene. Apanasenko was not.

      As the enemy staffer (in the most professional sense of the word) said, General Walter Model- "The art of war is, in essence, the art of organization." Read about the operation "Buffalo" - the withdrawal of Wehrmacht troops from the Rzhev ledge.

    [quote = Gordey.] I watched the film, not bad. Only the descriptions for this film are killed, for example: "The Great Patriotic War. Due to the shortage of well-trained fighters, the Soviet command uses" cannon fodder "- deserters imprisoned for real crime or for They all serve in penal battalions and know why a month of service is equal to ten years in prison. Because not everyone will live even this short term. "Or:" The film opens the curtain on another creature of the Stalin regime - battalions of fines from the Great Patriotic War , a month of service in which was equated to ten years in prison.
    [/ Quote]
    The film "Shtrafbat" is a fantasy on a free theme, not even bothering to figure out what a penal battalion is and what is its difference from a penalty company.
    All concepts are mixed.

    `Gu-ha` is a film about those who, spilling their blood, daily risking their own lives, paid for the mistakes of staff strategists." Or: "During the Great Patriotic War, there were troops in the Soviet army that had no analogues in history. These were the so-called "penal battalions" .., About those who went on the attack first, with virtually no chance of survival. About those who without hesitation were sent to the most terrible breakthroughs, to German machine guns ... "

      Back in the 80s, I often asked the leaders why we did not show our heroes and the deeds of their people and youth! I found the answer in 1992 from the bent down Gavriil Popov ... when he dispersed the peaceful procession of veterans and officers of the Soviet Army on February 23 on Gorky Street, and then the Yeltsins were forbidden to celebrate the Victory Day of the Soviet People over Nazi Germany, from 1992 to 2000 years !!! But the Germans were forbidden to call fascists!
