GEORGI ZHUKOV: MARSHAL OF THE SOVIET UNION (Color, 47 Minutes.)
This early 1970s British/American documentary gives an overview into the life and military adventures of the most enigmatic of World War II military leaders to westerners, the dedicated Marxist/Leninist supreme commander of Soviet forces and peasant son of a furrier who commanded the largest miltary force of any of the conflict's combatants, Georgi Zhukov. A tough, brilliant man, he was one of the very few men of any walk of life who could have a showdewn, let alone a disagreement, with Stalin, and not only survive, but prevail. Though Zhukov was shamefully mistreated after the war, his value as a winning battlefield commander and master strategist ensured his place at the apex of the precarious soviet military leadership, a place of honor in history and as well as in the hearts of the troops he led.
Georgy Zhukov, Russian marshal and politician, Minister of Defence for the Soviet Union (December 1, 1896 - June 18, 1974) was born Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov into a poverty-stricken Russian peasant family in Strelkovka, Maloyaroslavsky, Kaluga Governorate in the western Russian Empire. He was a career Russian officer in the Red Army of the Soviet Union who became Chief of General Staff, Deputy Commander-in-Chief, Minister of Defence and a member of the Politburo. During World War II he participated in multiple battles, ultimately commanding the 1st Belorussian Front in the Battle of Berlin. In recognition of Zhukov' role in World War II, he was allowed to participate in signing the German Instrument of Surrender and to inspect the Moscow Victory Parade of 1945. He later fell out of favor with Stalin, but after his death in 1953 his star rose again, having arrested Beria and found the favor of Nikita Khrushchev and Nikolai Bulganin. Until 1955, Zhukov had both sent and received letters from Eisenhower. Both leaders agreed that the two superpowers should coexist peacefully. He was forcibly retired from governmental service in 1957, but again brought back into favor if not government by Brezhnev. His memoirs were published in 1969 and became a best-seller. Georgy Zhukov died on June 18, 1974 of a stroke in Moscow at the age of 77. Contrary to Zhukov's last will for an Orthodox Christian burial, and despite the requests of the family to the country's top leadership, his body was cremated and his ashes were buried at the Kremlin Wall Necropolis alongside fellow generals and marshals of the Soviet Union.
