History 30/12/19 Who won “the battle of Kulikovo” in 1941

In 1380, met the Russian armies under the command of Prince Dmitry Donskoy with the Tatar hordes of Khan Mamai on the Kulikovo field; glorious hero Peresvet with Chelubey fought, and then the Russians defeated the Tatars — all this we might remember from school. Much less someone recalls that the field of Kulikovo (or rather, the presumed site of the battle with Mamai — exact is unknown) became the place of battles of another war — the great Patriotic war.

the Field is located in the Tula region, and on it in 1941, fierce fighting occurred, was a part of defensive measures for the protection of Moscow. The place of military glory of our ancestors once again soaked with blood.

Directly in front of the monument in memory of the battle of 1380, Soviet troops counterattacked the Germans themselves fought off their attacks. A lot of soldiers died here defending the ancient capital of Russia, the one, ruled by Dmitry Donskoy. Dragon’s teeth, reminiscent of the events of 1941, still in the field. Some of the soldiers were not buried (they are now find and bury the “search engines”), while others are buried in a mass grave, where they fought against the Wehrmacht and where again was saved by Moscow.

the Battle on the Kulikovo field was in late November — early December 1941. Initially, the Germans were able to occupy and the field itself and its surroundings — the village of moss. The invaders settled in the houses burned as normal wood dried wood harvested by villagers for construction, and then retreating, set fire to haystacks and the houses, burned the village of Kulikovka and part of the Moss. Burned grain stocks and livestock (residents all winter and then ate the potatoes, the survivors in the basements). Defeated the Germans and the Church of St. Sergius of Radonezh. Survived only half of the village houses. But to completely destroy the village Nazis failed due to the red army.

Here defended 269 th infantry division. The cutting edge German tankthe lateral wedge it took a little to the side, and the 269 th S. D. was his right flank. Here were destroyed many German tanks, and Moscow, they didn’t break. Long had the Wehrmacht to stand on the sacred place of Russian military glory. Infantry division survived and 13 December 1941 along with all the suburban front went forward, forcing the Germans out of the capital. Within two weeks of the German offensive pushed at 80-100 km to the West, the division liberated 400 settlements. Military paramedic Vladimir Rozhkov, who fought on the Kulikovo field in 1941, recalled: “In those terrible days me and my mates were lucky enough to be near the monument to soldiers of the battle of Kulikovo. […] We, Soviet soldiers, not given to the fascists to shame the monument. […] The Germans rushed ahead, but soon exhausted.”

Embittered failure, the Germans burned everything they could, and tried to extinguish the shot. 15 Dec 1941 they were gone. And drove their militia of Moscow, the same as their ancestors of the 14th century. 269-th division was formed in Kolomna, and since August she has been in fights. By November, this part was already thoroughly raked, in October-November, her soldiers had to fight in the full environment, most of its soldiers and officers killed, but as part of it survived.

After the battle of Kulikovo division fought under the eagle, the thunder of the enemy during the battle of Kursk, participated in the liberation of Gomel region of Belarus and made a great contribution to the success of the key stages of the operation “Bagration”, the men of the Kulikovo field was fought in Minsk, Bialystok, a Polish city Różan and finally ended up in East Prussia on German soil. 269 infantry took the city Allenstein, Willenberg, the Gutshtadtom, Braunberg and others, and has completed its glorious journey started in Moscow, near Berlin, destroying the grouping of the Wehrmacht in the South-Eastern suburbs of the capital of the Reich. May 9, 1945, the winners have met the allies on the Elbe.

Since then, on the Kulikovo field no one else attempted. Where Russian troops have twice earned the immortal SLAWu — peace and quiet.
