— Vasily Chuikov

Vasily Ivanovich Chuikov was a Soviet military officer and war hero. He was the commander of the 62nd Army during the Battle of Stalingrad. Chuikov was twice awarded the titles Hero of the Soviet Union and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross by the United States for his actions during the Battle of Stalingrad.

At the age of 12, he left school and his family home to earn his living in a factory in Saint Petersburg. When the Russian Civil War broke out, Chuikov, along with his brothers, became soldiers.

During the Russian Revolution Chuikov became unemployed. Later the same year, an older brother arranged for Chuikov to be recruited into the Red Guards. A year later he joined the Red Army. During his service, Chukiov received two awards of the Order of the Red Banner for bravery and heroism. He got also wounded four times, one was from a fragment in his left arm that could not be operated on. It led to partial paralysis and caused him to lose temporary use of his arm.

During the World War 2, Chuikov became an important commander, leading his men against the Polish, Finnish, Japanese, and eventually the Germans during the Battle of Stalingrad and even heading the Soviet offensive which conquered Berlin.

After the war, Chuikov continued to command the 8th Guards Army in Germany, later serving as Commander-in-Chief of the Group of Soviet Forces in Germany from 1949 until 1953, when he was made commander of the Kiev Military District. While serving at that post, on 11 March 1955 he was promoted to Marshal of the Soviet Union. From 1960 to 1964, he was the Commander-in-Chief of the Soviet Ground Forces. He also served as the Chief of the Civil Defense from 1961 until his retirement in 1972. From 1961 until his death, he was a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

He was a major consultant for the design of the Stalingrad battle memorial on Mamayev Kurgan, and was buried there after his death at the age of 82.
