9780898756036: The Soviet General Staff at War: 1941-1945

...Stalin arrived at eight o'clock. Novikov reported to him that two aircraft were ready for immediate take-off. One would be piloted by Colonel-General Golovanov, the other by Colonel Grachov... Novikov invited the Supreme Commander to fly in Golovanov's plane. Stalin appeared, at first, to accept the invitation, but after taking a few paces, suddenly stopped. "Colonel-Generals don't do much flying," he said. "We had better go with the colonel." He turned in Grachov's direction. Molotov and Voroshilov followed him. "Shtemenko will fly with us, too, and keep us informed about the situation on the way," Stalin said as he mounted the ramp. I did not keep him waiting.

About the Author:

Sergei Shtemenko was born in 1907 in the Cossack village of Uryupinskaya (now the town of Uryupinsk) on the River Khopyur, a tributary of the Don. His nationality is Russian. On finishing secondary school in 1926, he entered an artillery-training establishment, which launched him on his long career in the Army. After finishing the Red Army Mechanization and Motorization Academy in 1937 Shtemenko completed the General Staff Academy, and in 1940 he began his many years of service on the General Staff.

During the war, as Chief of the Operations Department and Deputy Chief of the General Staff, he was directly involved in planning operations and campaigns and frequently visited the front to supervise their execution. From 1948 to 1952, Shtemenko served as Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the USSR. Between 1953 and 1962 he held leading posts in a number of military districts and was Chief of Staff of Land Forces. He is now Chief of Staff of the Joint Armed Forces of the Countries of the Warsaw Pact. He holds the rank of General of the Army and has been awarded many Soviet and foreign decorations.
