Military Review

The devil wears the "Truth." Part of 10

23
There are eccentrics (and there are quite a few of them) who seriously argue that Viktor Suvorov glorifies in “Suicide” the achievements and power of the Soviet “defense industry”, prompting us to be proud of it before the whole world. They say, no matter what position the author holds, it is foolish to deny his merit.

But against the background of what such "merit" to consider? Against the background of the fact that the pre-war efforts in the USSR to strengthen their own defense capability were exposed by Rezun as preparation for the conquest of the world? Also recall that, according to the book we are discussing, before the start of the Second World War, in the Soviet Union, they did nothing else but to improve and manufacture weapons. Personally, I don’t really flatter myself to feel like a soulless militarist, as well as to imagine my great-grandparents, the Red Army men, fighting “to drive the entire population of the planet to concentration camps, barracks and labor armies, as Grandfather Marx taught” (p. 80).

Decisively “declaring” the “holy war for world domination” (the same page) on behalf of the Soviet Union, Rezun looks in a completely different way where he was not ordered to bark, namely in the direction of “Western democracies”: “France, which She didn’t show any obvious aspirations for world domination; Richelieu alone allocated one and a half times more armor steel for the construction of the battleship than Hitler’s strategists for the construction of all its tankswhich they managed to build by the beginning of World War II ”(p. 129).

So, comrades: when the French are arming - this is one thing, and when we are completely different ... Well, let's not confuse the sinful with the righteous, as Victor Suvorov bequeathed to us. And, if we recognize our “sins”, then we definitely should recognize industrialization as such, because it was thanks to her that we had a powerful defense industry. Moreover, if you rely on the "aggressive" nature of the USSR, then industrialization was carried out in order to create the foundations for turning the world into a sort of underworld!

Here is what is written in the tab with photos, available in the booklet, regarding one of the industrial giants of the first five-year plans: “Stalin built the Stalingrad Tractor Plant - STZ. Allegedly for civilian needs. In 1941, the Red Army used STZ-3 and STZ-5 as an artillery tractor. ”

STZ-5 "Stalinets", although it was designed for "service" in the army, was essentially a tractor. This is the most common means of mechanical thrust in the Red Army at the beginning of the Second World War. STZ-5 and the agricultural machine STZ-3, which had been used by the troops, could not provide high mobility for the Soviet artillery.

But this problem is more than understandable: the Soviet Union literally “was torn” between the economic arrangement of its vast territory and the ensuring of its security. It is clear that there were no superprofits from the sale of oil and gas at all (Siberia was just beginning to be developed), just as there was no generous overseas investment that Nazi Germany used before the start of WWII. We hoped only for ourselves.

Although what I’m talking about ... Our Rezun’s difficulties aren’t of interest ... If the STZ tractors were operated in the Red Army, this automatically makes this plant a product of Stalin’s planetary appetites! Uncle Vitya, even the devil himself (in the face of whom it is known) cannot be deceived!

And childishly naive will be the one who thinks that in the “aggressive” Soviet Union only the Stalingrad Tractor Plant was created “supposedly for civilian needs” ... Once again, the brutal grin of Bolshevism is “confirmed” by Guderian’s suppositions, “who were once invited even to our tank factories, to the teachings and tests of tanks ”(p. 95). We read (hereinafter referred to as): “Returning from the Soviet Union, shocked, Guderian wrote a book in which he painted both Soviet tanks in all details and details, and the power of the Kharkov factory where they were produced. Guderian knew that tanks were also manufactured at the Kirov factory in Leningrad. Assumed that the Stalingrad tractor without any problems can be established tank production and even at a number of factories, which, according to his assumption, were built somewhere in the Urals and beyond the Urals. " The author of “Suicide” does not voice the title of that very book. And it should have been, especially since (Rezun continues) "The book of Guderian became a bestseller, it was translated into several languages."

But be that as it may, these supposed assumptions of the German military commander in the "Suicide" are at least some kind of "argument" in favor of the Rezunovsky "verdict", according to which the Germans have no strategic bomber aviation pre-doomed them to defeat in the war with the USSR. “At a number of factories” “somewhere in the Urals and beyond the Urals” it was always possible “without problems” to set up production of tanks, and the enemy, in any case, cannot reach the Ural Mountains. Even by the forces of its bomber aircraft from airfields on the Volga. Well, you hopefully remember that the “German bombers Do-17, Ju-88 and He-111" were "created for short-range flights" ...

In short, thanks to our all-consuming militarism, and especially to the fact that “the German army was backward” (p. 84)!

Strangely enough, devaluing the GREAT VICTORY, Rezun manages to “protect” his scribbling from fair criticism in advance. They say that I am proving that the Germans could not conquer the Soviet Union, and the "Marxist historians" and their followers say that it was possible! And who then throws mud at the USSR ?!

And one of the indicative "shootings" at the end of the book, Viktor Suvorov, and at all discourages any desire to defame his "good name": "Yuri Finkelstein, you have a question. Hitler has an army in 3,5 of a million people. The main weapon of this army is the 1898 model rifle of the year. The basis of mobility - creaky peasant cart. It is opposed by the Red Army, whose mobilization resource is 34 of a million soldiers and officers. The Red Army operates in territories that are theoretically impossible to capture. Is it possible, with so little strength, to crush the Red Army? Can this be done in three months? Even if you think that Hitler has a superior race, and subhumans opposed him, then even for three months you will not interrupt them all. They will simply go where the Hitler carts cannot reach. So how dare you say that Hitler was not only ready for war, but could have crushed the Red Army in three months! ”(P. 161).

The Barbarossa plan really envisioned the defeat of the Red Army within three months. The German strategists planned for the Wehrmacht forces to reach the Arkhangelsk-Astrakhan line during the period, which should have been a guarantee for the USSR to stop armed resistance due to the cardinal weakening of our defense industry potential, since the overwhelming majority of its constituent enterprises were in the European part of the countries.

And these aggressive calculations failed not because they were a stupid adventure, as Rezun presents them to the attention of readers, and not because of the “backwardness” of the Wehrmacht. They failed because the Soviet military-political leadership, together with the people, did everything possible and especially impossible to defeat the aggressor.

But our difficulties and, accordingly, the way we overcame them, is an empty sound for the author of "Suicide". Grand evacuation of industrial enterprises to the east? No, I did not hear! “Somewhere in the Urals and beyond the Urals,” the death sentence on the Barbarossa Plan had already been signed!

      The traitor Rezun is very famous with us, I would even say untwisted. His books were published in Russia, right at the beginning of the 90's. And he writes vividly so, it is easy to read. Therefore, many of his books were read in Russia. Other traitors are not so interesting.

        But the tenth article is about the same thing, the author that, for fools keeps us, who needs to chew for a long time? Or jammed it, or personal accounts? One article would be enough, Rezun is not worthy of more.

      - No! Such a cyky, as Rezun, must be disassembled by bones, considered by a letter. After all, by his opuses, he intervenes in the soul without soap, turns everything there on the wrong side. And someone thinks after his little books: - And for what our grandfathers - the fathers fought, and indeed from that direction? So it is necessary to water it publicly and often, so that our children know where the bitter truth is, and where the sweet lie.

      `` I will also remind you that, according to the book we are discussing, in the Soviet Union, before the beginning of the Second World War, they were not engaged in anything else, except for the improvement and production of weapons. '' And what country in Europe did not do this? Maybe England or France? Or Germany? And now European countries are not doing this? If the country does not do this, it will disappear as a country. If you don't want to feed your army, you will be someone else's.

      From Hitler's point of view, Rezun and all his relatives are subhuman. The paradox, the hereditary subhuman justifies Hitler and blames the USSR for the victory over fascism. It would be better if Rezun died when he was little.

    -------------------------------------------------- -----------
    "oshchushchenie himself as a" spiritless militarist "is, my friend, from personal experiences, but not Rezunov's influence, if, of course, the psyche is stable.: =)
    "Great-grandfathers of the Red Army", I am sure, did not dream of driving the whole world into camps. They wanted to be demobilized as soon as possible to the woman. Their fathers, commanders under the leadership of a wise party, dreamed of making the whole world communist (happy).
    And on the actual implementation of these plans, I highly recommend taking an interest in the work of the Comintern in the prewar years. Not leaflets, you know, scattered comrades. Terror specific in Europe organized in due time.
    And in general, if you really criticize, it’s not individual assumptions from the book, by the way, YES, which are sometimes very dubious in essence, but methodically, chapter by chapter, to rethink and justly ostracize the whole book (or books). , as in this hastily cobbled together article, albeit a continuation of the cycle.
    And, most importantly, the author can be finally "applied" only with facts and documents, but not by his "attitude", and by his own interpretation of events, no matter how attractive and close it may seem to the reader. then do not roll.

      And what to "apply"? You, the enemies of the communists on the territory of the USSR, in the West, in the former socialist countries, YOURSELF proved that there is not a single honest person among you, that you manipulate all the facts as it is FAVORABLE for you.
      Here is your Rezun, having insolently falsified the election results in Germany in 1933, concocted a myth, "Stalin brought Hitler to power," and even accusing the German communists that they did not want to unite with the Social Democrats, although the Social Democrats themselves did not they longed to unite with the communists, and in the presidential elections in Germany in 1932 they supported not the communist Thalmann, but Hindenburg, who in January 1933 appointed Hitler as Reich Chancellor of Germany.

          Rezun "The Last Republic", chapter 6, section 6

          "In the 1933 elections, Hitler received
          43% of the vote, Social Democrats and Communists - 49%. "

          In fact:

          33 year
          NSDAP KP + Social Democrats
          44% 30%

          And if it didn’t come, I wrote “Rezun insolently falsifying the election results in Germany in 1933, concocting a myth,“ Stalin brought Hitler to power ”

      Justification, at least some, of these liberalistic cliches, driven into your head by the rezonopodobnyh, can you give? Well, or at least think with your own mind, to hell with Stalin, who had just cleaned up the Trotskyists who wanted to ignite the whole world at the expense of Russia, to walk along their path without enough forces and means for this?

      Just in the prewar years, terror was organized against the Comintern itself. Once again, lovers of world revolutions and those who were guided by their own class intuition, and not by orders from above, were cleaned out of it.
      They even reached the main theoretician of the world revolution - the very one who openly called the IVS a compromiser, counter-revolutionary and traitor to the ideas of the October Revolution.

      So 95% do not like to read documents. They are long and dry. Well, how can one compare the gnarly language and the brisk Rezun feather with one and a half gigs of scans of texts and blind tables from the reports of the commanders of the mechanized corps ZAPOVO and KOVO as they were entrusted with the compounds. Those reports from which a terrible conclusion emerges: in the spring of 1941 the USSR did not have armored forces. And until 1942 there will be no - no personnel, no equipment, no fuel, spare parts and parts of shells, no places of constant dislocation, no training opportunities.

    So it’s absolutely true, no matter how our Army is called. Axiom!!!
    Even theoretically it is not possible to capture. As Mom explained to me - I’ll pull my thief, a stranger .. Well, you understand.

    Yes, put on this rezun, the scary thing is that more and more such "rezuns" appear and it would be okay only among the "liberal" riffraff ... Why so? Isn't it time Fursenko (and at the same time Livanov) to ask a direct question, who are you in general, you work with ... children of your own kind (I will not even apologize for such treatment) Do you even gentlemen (so you just like that) understand how all this can end? They are reforming, reforming education, and it’s a no brainer where they are reforming it ... They don’t have money , thu. In two years, impoverished Ukraine has carried out such reforms in schools that it’s awkward, hair stands on end from what we will soon get. So we, soon, will have a whole galaxy of such "rezunov" grow up, if education does not stop a finger in ... poking around.

    STZ-5 "Stalinets", although it was designed for "service" in the army, was essentially a tractor. This is the most common means of mechanical thrust in the Red Army at the beginning of the Second World War. STZ-5 and the agricultural machine STZ-3, which had been used by the troops, could not provide high mobility for the Soviet artillery.

    According to the actual characteristics of the STZ-5, there is a wonderful quote from the speech of the commander of 6 MK Khatskilevich:
    Theoretically, this is true, but in practice it does not give such speed.

    Here is the same quote in the context of the speech:
    On the use of artillery in a breakthrough. Often the question was put before me like this: “Why aren’t you using your artillery?” Our troop commander is not particularly sympathetic to this matter. Why? Three howitzer regiments in 84 howitzer guns could support artillery, but artillery does not always need it, it does not always need our artillery assets, especially since we have the artillery of the STZ-5 tractor, which delay movement. Our artillery, armed with these tractors, has little mobility and lags behind wheeled vehicles and tank units.
    (From the Presidium: 30 km per hour).
    M. G. Khatskilevich: Theoretically, this is so, but practically it does not give such speed.
    (From the Presidium: He is not pulling this system.)
    M. G. Khatskilevich: Yes, he does not pull this system.

    That’s what it means to invite practitioners to discuss the statements of theorists. But in Pavlov’s discussed report on the use of the tank corps in the breakthrough, everything came out so harmoniously ... on paper. smile

    I read this Rezun. One "Icebreaker" is worth something. Everything is dumped in a heap, tanks, airplanes, Stalin. But the liberals like it to the point of shredding. How many normal historians have refuted all this nonsense, with figures, with documents, they don't care. close - as a traitor and a beggar. hi
