Rewrite[edit]

this article will be rewritten when i get to it in my Marshal of the Soviet Union series, unless someone wants to do it first. Adam 00:26, 5 May 2004 (UTC)

64th or 62nd[edit]

Did Chuikov command the Russian 62nd Army or the Russian 64th Army? I know both fought viciously for Stalingrad, but I think it was the 62nd that Chuikov commanded. I'll re-check that in my primary sources (Enemy at the Gates, by William Craig and Stalingrad, memories and reassessments by another guy who's name escapes me.) Cam 20:27, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

You may well have already located the answer, however Chuikov commanded the 62nd army; responsible for the defence of Stalingrad proper. I believe he was the deputy commander of the 64th just prior to his appointment by the front commander Yeremenko. It was Shumilov who had the 64th. Hope that clarifies things a bit! If you haven't already read it, I highly recommend Anthony Beevor's Stalingrad: The Fateful Siege: 1942-1943 LondonIce 06:58, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Read the article through, it contains the answers to these questions!Malcolm535 (talk) 20:08, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

"First Russian marshal" buried outside Moscow?[edit]

Removed this statement. Apparently, the author of removed phrase meant Soviet (pre-1917 Russian field marshals, quite obviously, were buried elsewhere: Kamensky in his estate in Oryol governorate, Suvorov in St. Petersburg etc.). But then what about five Soviet marshals executed in Stalin's time? Marshal Kulik, it appears, was executed in Samara. He was downgraded to a general, true, but he was a marshal for quite a while. So the phrase should probably be reduced to First of Soviet marshals buried with military honors outside of Moscow, quite confusing, isn't it? NVO (talk) 18:50, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
