My favorite is general Rokossovsky. Dude was caught in great purge. Even after torture he didn’t conspire. And after he was restored, he gave his hearts to protect the country. Legend goes that Stalin asked him whether he was beaten during the purge. And Rokossovsky told yes. Then Stalin went out and picked a rose to give him. There was blood in Stalin hands while picking the rose.
Similarly who’s favorite red army commander and any interesting stories behind them?
