Monument to a great hero

Marshall Georgy Zhukov ranks as one of the most famous Russian military leaders. He was one of the only persons brave enough to stand up to Stalin, with whom he had many disagreements. He lived between 1896-1974, and became famous in 1939 at the Battle of Khalkin Gol in Mongolia, where he defeated the Japanese with modern military tactics using tanks as his main weapon.We had visited a monument to him, and two Zhukov museums in Mongolia, as well as touring his command center at the Khalkin Gol battlefield.

Two years later he was the Red Army Chief of Staff. He was removed from this post shortly after the invasion of the Soviet Union by Germany. He was recalled by Stalin when Moscow was in danger of falling, and stopped the German army for the first time in WW2, and pushed them away from the city in a counteroffensive. Over the next three years, he was a part of offences against the Germans that resulted in his troops raising the Soviet flag over the Reichstag, which is one of the iconic photos of WW2. He was ill for many periods after the war, and wasn't very active in senior positions.

His statue is in a park named in his honour on a Street which is also named after him. It was placed here in 1995 to recognise the 50th anniversary of WW2. The entrance area to the monument has the years 1945-1995 in black numbers.. This area may be reached by walking, bus or tram. We had traveled extensively in Siberia, and visited Zhukov statues in Irkutsk and Yekaterinburg. He also has two statues in Moscow, with the one on Red Square being the most visited.We had also visited the house which he grew up in and a museum dedicated to him in the village of Zhukova, which is an hours train ride outside of Moscow.

There are a lot of statues in Omsk, but I like that a city remembers its history in this way. You can learn a lot by vieweing these.

Marshall Zhukov is immortalised in a stunning statue which stands prominently at the corner of the street named after him and 10 Years of October Street. With or without yourself in it, this makes a great photo!
