All who are faced with Marshal Zhukov, remembered him as rude, demanding and short-tempered. Born into a family of peasants of the Kaluga Georgy could easily obmaterit not only of captain or major, but a Soviet General. Despite the cool nature and frequent dissatisfaction with subordinates, memoirs in a negative way the captain remembered only about Marshal Andrei Ivanovich Eremenko. Zhukov wrote that before the war with Germany: “Eremenko in the army did not love stupidity and arrogance”. Andrey Ivanovich in his statements was less restrained.

During the October Plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist party 1957, the Soviet defense Minister, Georgi Zhukov, accused of planting in the army of his own personality cult. Marshall has not justified high trust, strayed from the party line and was removed from all his posts. In fact, Nikita Khrushchev was afraid the authority of the military commander and believed that he could hold in the Soviet Union a military coup. The resignation was supported by the Marshal Biryuzov, who said that the post of Minister of beetles all suppressed and created intolerable working conditions. The commander of the Soviet air force, Alexander Novikov, accused of Georgy in the lust for power, narcissism, love of honor. Lieutenant-General Alexandr Vadis said: “the beetles are rude and arrogant, boast about their achievements”.

Timoshenko, speaking from the podium said: “I know of Zhukov’s joint continuous service, and must frankly say that the trend toward unlimited power and a sense of personal infallibility he had, as it were, in blood.” Chief researcher of Central Museum of Armed forces, Vladimir Afanas’ev, argued that all of the commanders said that they were forced to give the testimony against Zhukov and Tymoshenko personally apologized to the Marshal.

Andrey wrote: “…this usurper and rude, treated me very bad, just not human. He trampled all in its path… I’m with comrade Zhukov already worked with and know him better than that”. The characterization was supplemented with the words: “This man is terrible and narrow-minded. Highest grade ambitious…”. According to Yeremenko, Zhukov won thanks to a five-fold numerical superiority over the Germans. According to some researchers, he was offended by Zhukov for what he deprived him of the glory of the winner in the battle of Stalingrad.

After coming to power of Nikita Khrushchev, a version that the idea of a victorious counter-attack during the battle of Stalingrad belonged to the Military Council of the front, namely, Colonel-General Yeremenko and member of the military Council — Khrushchev. Supposedly, they personally sent a Bid proposal to conduct an offensive operation. Thus, the new Secretary General tried to ascribe the glory of the great victory. A clarification was made Marshal Alexander Vasilevsky, who wrote that for planning such a large-scale strategic operation it is necessary to conduct logistics calculations, and this could only GHQ and the General staff, not Khrushchev and Eremenko.

the Poet Konstantin Simonov after a personal conversation with Vasilevsky wrote: “I have heard quite a hard feature Eremenko, as a man a pleading look, agile and able in some cases to adulation, others to the deception, misrepresentation”. Wasilewski also said that during the battle of Stalingrad Eremenko preferred to command from the dugout and didn’t like to drive on the opposite Bank of the Volga.
