- The fight, which are silent liberal "historians"
The battle near the Ukrainian village Legedzino showed all the fortitude of a Soviet soldier
In the history of the Great Patriotic War were lots of battles and fights, who for one reason or another, they say, were "behind the scenes" of the Great War. Although military historians have not disregarded virtually no not that battle, and even local clashes, though a number of battles of the initial period of the Great Patriotic War, studied very little, and the topic is still waiting for their researchers.
Actually, to call what happened in Legedzino, the battle is not entirely correct: rather, it was a normal fight, one of the thousands that occur every day in our country’s tragic for July 1941, if not a "but." Fight off Legedzino is unique in the history of warfare. Even by the standards of a terrible and tragic 1941 this fight went beyond all conceivable framework and demonstrated to the Germans, with which they faced the enemy in the face of Russian soldiers. To be more precise, in that fight the Germans were opposed even by the Red Army, and the border troops of the NKVD — the ones who in the past quarter century has not only defamed lazy.
However, many historians of the liberal color-blank refuse to see the obvious facts: not only that the guards were the first to blow the aggressor, but in the summer of 1941 did exactly the non-core functions, fighting with the Wehrmacht. And fought valiantly and sometimes better than the Red Army personnel. Nevertheless, they have recorded in the crowd and called butchers’ Stalinist oprichniki "- only on the ground that they belonged to the department, LP Beria.
After the tragic to the 6th and 12th armies of the South-Western Front battlefields near Uman, poured out in the next "pot", surrounded by the remains of 20 divisions were trying to break into the east. Someone did it, someone — no. But this does not mean that part of the Red Army were surrounded by the Germans "whipping boys." While liberal historians paint a picture of the summer offensive Wehrmacht as a continuous "drape" of the Red Army, millions of prisoners, and bread and salt for Hitler "liberators" in Ukraine, it is not true.
One of these historians, Mark SOLONIN generally presented Wehrmacht confrontation with the Red Army as a battle with the natives of the colonialists. Say, on the background of the French campaign, where Hitler’s troops had suffered, in his opinion, the heavy losses, the Soviet Union in the summer of 1941 was not a war, and almost no entertainment easy walk, "loss ratio 1 to 12, maybe except in the case where white colonizers sailed to Africa with cannons and muskets, come on Aboriginal defending spears and hoes "(M.Solonin." June 23: M Day "). Here’s a description of SOLONIN gave our grandfathers who won the worst of wars in human history, comparing them with the natives, armed with hoes.
About the loss ratio can be a long debate, but we all know how the Germans counted their dead soldiers. They are still listed as "missing" ten divisions, especially among those that were destroyed in the summer offensive of 1944. But let us leave such calculations on the conscience of liberal historians and better look at the facts that are known to be stubborn. And at the same time let’s see how to actually look "easy walk" of the Nazis on the ground in Ukraine at the end of July 1941.
July 30 near the Ukrainian village Legedzino was an attempt to stop the advancing Wehrmacht forces consolidated Battalion Border separate Kolomiyskogo commandant under the command of Major General Rodion Filippova attached to it with a company of the Lviv school boundary dog. At the disposal of Major Filippov were less than 500 border guards and about 150 dogs. Heavy weapons battalion had not, and indeed by definition should not have to fight in the open field with the regular army, the more superior it is numerically and qualitatively. But it was the last reserve, and Major Philippi had no choice but to send their soldiers and dogs in a suicide attack. Moreover, in the most severe battle that escalated into a melee, the guards were able to stop opposing them Wehrmacht infantry regiment. Many German soldiers were torn by dogs, many died in the melee, and only appearance on the battlefield German tank regiment saved from the ignominious flight. Of course, anti-tank guards were powerless.

The monument to the heroes of the border guards and service dogs
Battalion of Filippova no one survived. All five hundred soldiers were killed, as well as 150 dogs. Or rather, of the dogs survived only one: a wounded sheepdog Inhabitants Legedzino, despite the fact that the Germans after the occupation of the village have shot all the dogs, including even sitting on the circuit. Apparently, the firm got them in that fight if they vented their anger on any innocent animals.
The occupying power is not allowed to bury the dead guards, and only by 1955, the remains of all the dead soldiers of Major Filippov were found and buried in a mass grave near the village school. After 48 years, in 2003, the voluntary contributions of Ukrainian veterans of the Great Patriotic War, and with canine Ukraine on the outskirts of the village Legedzino was a monument to the heroes of the border guards, and their four-legged friends who are honestly and to the end, at the cost of his own life, fulfilled their military duty .
Unfortunately, in a bloody whirlwind summer of 1941 to establish the names of all the guards failed. Failed and after. Many of them are buried and unheralded, and of 500 people were able to establish the names of only two characters. Five hundred guards deliberately went to the death, it is the knowledge that their attack on human well-equipped regiment of the Wehrmacht would be suicidal. But we must pay tribute to Major Philippi: Before his death, he was able to see how the Nazi warriors who conquered all of Europe, torn to pieces and chase as rabbits, sheep dog and kill him in melee guards. For the sake of this moment was worth living and dying …
Liberal historians actively rewriting the history of the Great War, many years trying to tell us chilling stories about the bloody "feats" of the NKVD. But in this case if only one of these "historians" remembered feat Major Filippov, who will be remembered in the history of world wars, a man who stopped the infantry regiment of Wehrmacht forces of one battalion and working dogs!
Spartan King Leonidas and his 300 men for centuries have immortalized his
name. Major Filippov, in conditions of total chaos retreat, with 500 and 150 fighters are tired hungry dogs left in immortality, not relying on the awards and generally nothing on hoping. He just went into a suicidal attack on machine guns and dogs trehlineykami … and won! A terrible price, but won the hours or days that are then allowed to defend Moscow, and the entire country. So why is it no one writes and makes films? Where is the great historians of our time? Why pro fight at Legedzino no mention Svanidze and Mlechin why another investigative report has not removed the Brewers? Episode unworthy of their attention? ..
But God be with them, with liberal historians. Much more interesting would be to present the morale of the conquerors of Europe, which yesterday boldly marched through Paris, and under Legedzino sadly looked at the torn pants on my ass and buried their comrades, the march which ended in the Ukraine. The Fuhrer had promised them Russian — colossus with feet of clay, and tkni fall apart, and that they were only on the second month of the war?
But the Russian has not yet begun to fight, traditionally long harnessed. There were still thousands of miles of territory where every bush fires, there were still Stalingrad and Kursk, and the people, that can not be overcome simply by definition. And to understand all of this could already be in the Ukraine, faced with the soldiers of Major Filippov. The Germans did not pay attention to this fight, considering it a very minor skirmish, but in vain. For many then he paid.
Whether Hitler’s generals a little smarter as their Fuhrer, they are already in the summer of 1941 began to look for ways out of the adventure with the Eastern Front. You can enter in Russia, but that very few people get turned back on his own two feet, which once again proved very clearly Major Filippov and his men. It was in July 1941, well before Stalingrad and Kursk Bulge, the prospects for the Wehrmacht were hopeless.
Historians type Brand Corned beef can arbitrarily long time to talk about the loss ratios, but the fact remains that after a successful summer offensive, which ended on December 5 at Moscow knockout counter-attack of the Red Army, the Wehrmacht ran back. He ran so fast that Hitler was forced to bring to life his Drapano army detachments. And in another way, and it could not be: after all, it would be naive to believe that such people will be able to win, as a major Philip and his men. Kill — yes, but did not win. So the war is over and what she was supposed to end — victory May 1945. And the beginning of the Great Victory was in the summer of 1941, when Major Filippov, his guards and dogs have gone into immortality …
