First and Last Heroes of USSR

Post by Minotauros » 03 Nov 2002 15:42

Hi Everybody !

Who was the first to be awarded the Gold Star of Hero of USSR after 22 June 1941 ?

Who was the last to be awarded the same decoration before 15 September 1945 ?

Who has precise informations about a Hero of USSR (1941) holder named Grigoriy Gvozdiev, a Soviet tank ace from Dorogobuzh (Bielorussia) ?

Thank You !

First who got awarded The Gold Star on June 08 1941 were three fighter pilots: Kharitonov Piotr, Zdorovtsev Stephan and Zhukov Mikhail. All three got the Hero's Gold Star for ramming enemy planes.
The last two people who got the award on September 14 1945 for the attack on Korean port were Markelov Nikolai and Trushin Vasily.

I couldn't find anything about Grigoriy Gvozdiev. There was Soviet tank commander Alex Gvozdiev but he got his Gold Star in 1945.
