“After the injury and the hospital, I was sent to the reserve. Part of it stood near Gomel. And just then it was necessary to attack. Operation Bagration began.
Formed a battalion of penalty box. In the penal battalion, the following: soldiers - penalty box, and the officers - personnel. I fought before the hospital in a mortar company, was the commander of the calculation and the Commissariat of Minerals.

After the hospital I finished an accelerated course at an officer’s school. School finished, lieutenant shoulder straps received, well, I think, now I will be given a command post. Maybe the commander of the mortar company appointed. Appointed ... to the 10th separate penal battalion.
In the evening, crossed the river Sozh. We went to the original. And in the morning everyone was given vodka, set the task, and after the artillery preparation - go ahead! I also drank vodka.
We, the officers, came along with our mouths. In the same chain with the soldiers fled. When you run to the attack, you don’t think about your life and death. At night, when they were sitting in the trench, they thought. I saw faces — all these thoughts were overcome. And before the attack, when the artillery preparation began, I saw how the guys shaking the floors of their overcoats ...And when they got up, everything was already over. You fly - like on wings. Forward!

We broke through the front. The Germans on our site stubborn got caught, did not move. So we went over their heads. Narrow wedges in two places made their way to their defense, jumped into the trench and went along it.
In the hands of grenades and engineer shovels. We crushed them, went further. And the neighbors, as it turned out, did not break through. Their German did not miss. There penalties on the breakthrough was not there.
We went deeper by six kilometers. We stopped. We see no one on the flanks. And the German began to surround us. I come to my senses. Laid on all sides. And already in the loudspeaker shouts: "Ivan! Bayonets in the ground!"
We contacted by radio with the headquarters of the division. From there they received an order: to return to the original one. They began to prepare a breakthrough. And the German already closed the gap for us. Even the mortars dragged.
Okay, we also knew how to fight. We concentrated on a plot about a hundred meters wide and went on the attack again. Next to me killed three. Send out They counted the living — about 200 people remained, and almost all of them were wounded. And in the morning, when we went on the attack, there were 1,200 of us. "- From the memories of Lieutenant of the 10th Separate Penal Battalion of the 3rd Belorussian Front, DFTroyin.
