Zhukov was born for war. He participated in the two world wars that have occurred so far. In the First World War, Zhukov joined the army, participated in the war, and was wounded. He was brave in combat and captured a German officer. He was awarded the George Medal twice. In World War II, Zhukov successively served as the Chief of Staff of the Soviet Army, the representative of the Supreme Command, the commander of various fronts, and the top deputy commander. He participated in the planning and personally directed the counter-assault operations in the Yernia region and Leningrad. A series of major battles such as the Battle of Defense, the Battle of Moscow, the Battle of Stalingrad, the Battle of Kursk, the Battle of Ukraine, the Liberation of Belarus, and the Conquest of Berlin. The number of battles he has commanded, the scale of the battle, the grandeur of the battlefield, the fierceness and cruelty of the battle, and the large number of people killed by the enemy and us are unprecedented in the history of human warfare. Stalin never praised people before his death, but he was an exception to Zhukov. At the celebration banquet celebrating the victory of the Great Patriotic War, Stalin said when talking about the special significance of the Battle of Moscow: "Zhukov's name, as a symbol of victory, will never be separated from this battlefield.
Just beside the square near the Red Square. In addition to the ancient and beautiful churches and other historical buildings that attract me, Russia is the fascinating golden autumn, so I firmly choose to come in late autumn. I wanted to come in September when it was not so cold. I was afraid that I would miss the most beautiful autumn scenery, because the round-trip air ticket in October was 2930 yuan cheaper by several hundred yuan! Fortunately, the autumn colors are still there. Next to the Red Square is the largest GUM department store in Moscow. Some of them have Chinese signs, which shows that there are many Chinese tourists!
