Smile Russian historians

Do you know what conclusion I made during the communication here?

"Totalitarian" states try to hide the truth from their population, and "democratic" states try to spread lies actively among their population



Almost all posts about the history of Russia are based on statements of people who are not Russian historians.

This topic is open to prove the existence of historians in Russia





Leonid Milov / Леонид Милов (1929-2007).

"Russian Plowman and Special Aspects of Russian Historical Process / Великорусский пахарь и особенности российского исторического процесса" - (The first edition was in 1998).


From the annotation:

"The main feature of the territory of the historical core of the Russian state from the point of view of agrarian development is a very limited time for fieldwork. The so-called "period without plowing", equal to seven months, is fixed in the state documentation in the XVII century. In other words, for many centuries the Russian peasant had about 130 days for agricultural work (taking into account the prohibition of work on Sundays). In addition, about 30 days were spent on haymaking. As a result, a peasant with one plow (that is, having a family consisting of 4 people) had about 100 working days for the cultivated work.

For comparison, we recall that in a large farm in the middle of the 18th century, 59.5 man/days were spent per hectare of arable land (for all types of work) and about the same amount went to arable land in farms of the North of France at the same time. However, making such labor, the French farmer had ten months of working time a year, and in Central Russia this period was half that. Therefore, in Russia only a large feudal farm for this period, possessing the possibility of concentrating the corvee labor force for summer work, could fulfill all the minimum set of works required from the point of view of the norms of agriculture. As for the peasant, he had only 22-23 working days for all types of arable land (if he was employed at his master's work, then he had half of this time).

From here come all the troubles of the Russian peasant: he could normally handle only an extremely small plot of arable land. If he had to necessarily increase it, he could do this solely at the expense of his own sleep and rest and by attracting the labor of children and the elderly. The second option of expansion of small arable land could be realized only at the expense of sharp decrease in level of agriculture (up to dispersion of seeds on a not plowed field) that led to low and very low productivity, a ploughing of the soil and constant threat of hunger which in Russia was very frequent guest.

Such a tragic situation was aggravated by the grave conditions of the development of cattle breeding, the main of which was the unusually long (up to 7 months) period of keeping cattle in the stall, which required large stocks of feed. Hence the bitter paradox of Russia: vast spaces, meadows and almost no fodder for livestock (and this is basically straw), so there were few cattle, and there was very little fertilizer for the fields, not to mention the food resources of cattle breeding, marketing opportunities its products, and so on.

The extreme weakness of individual peasant farming in the conditions of the East European Plain was compensated by the enormous role of the community during almost the whole thousand-year history of Russian statehood. Due to the difference in natural and geographical conditions for thousands of years, the same amount of work for Western has always satisfied more of "natural needs of the individual" than in Eastern Europe. In Eastern Europe, for thousands of years, the aggregate of these, the most essential needs of the individual was significantly greater than in the West of Europe, but the conditions for satisfying them are much more complicated and worse. Consequently, the volume of the aggregate surplus product of society in Eastern Europe was always much smaller, and the conditions for its creation are much worse than in the main Western European societies."

Vladlen Loginov / Владлен Логинов (born in 1929).

"V. I. Lenin. Full biography. / В.И. Ленин. Полная биография." (The first edition was in 2018).



An annotation:

Vladlen Loginov is the largest Russian researcher of the life and activity of V. I. Lenin. In this edition, the full biography of Lenin from birth to death is given for the first time written by Vladlen Loginov. The first part tells about the young years of Vladimir Ulyanov, his character, becoming as a person, choosing his life path, creating the Bolshevik Party. The second part is devoted to the revolution of 1917 and the role of Lenin in it, which the author shows as a tough pragmatist and a strong-willed leader. The third part shows the last years of V. I. Lenin, the creation of the USSR and the fate of Lenin's political testament.

The book is filled with a huge amount of factual material, including little-known, and at the same time it has a good style of presentation, which makes it accessible to the widest circle of readers.

I not argue that this book is related to the history because the book was written by people who have degrees in philosophy.





Anatoly Belyakov and Oleg Matveychev / Анатолий Беляков (born in 1971) и Олег Матвейчев (born in 1970).

"Trojan Horse of Western History / Троянский конь западной истории." (The first edition was in 2013).





An annotation:

What is this book about? This book is about an exciting journey to Troy, both ancient and modern. About the fact that the Trojans defeated the Greeks (not the other way around, as is commonly believed). And that the well-known Greek religion with its anthropomorphism was created artificially for political reasons. The authors assert that the information warfare, the falsification of history—is not an innovation, but the oldest essence of Western way of thinking. The book refutes the conventional wisdom that “history is written by the winners.” On the contrary, authors have shown: those who write history become winners. The book is written in bright, vivid and interesting manner for laymen. At the same time it is absolutely scientific and opposed fancy sensational historical fast food. This book is about the struggle for historical truth and justice, which roots us in the world, because without the truth we are orphans.





The book in english - http://matveychev.ru/wp-content/uplo...rn_History.pdf



There is also a site dedicated to this book - http://whowontrojanwar.com/

(But on this site is placed only the text of the final conversation between the authors of the book. However, from the site you can also download the English version of the book.)

A typical warrior of the border guard of the Hellenistic fortress of Uzundar, armed with a bow. The reconstruction was made according to finds found during excavations of the fortress by the Bactrian detachment of the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The video was prepared for the international conference “Eastern Hellenism: New Data”, which was held at the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences on December 17–18, 2019.

Reconstruction: Oleg Dvurechensky.
Artist: Maxim Vryasov.
Music: Mitya Kuznetsov "At the end of the road."
Video shooting and editing: Alexander Drepak.

The figure illustrates the first floor of the shooting gallery of the walls of the Uzundar fortress.










Scientists of the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, together with the Institute of Art Studies of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan, found that on the northern border of ancient Bactria in the III century BC there was a single fortification system that blocked the border and protected the oases of Bactria from raids by nomads. They explored the Bactrian border fortress of Uzundar and proved that it was part of this large fortification system, called the Great Bactrian Wall by the expedition members. As a result of excavations in 2018, scientists completely uncovered the citadel of the fortress, compiled a detailed architectural plan and received rich archaeological material testifying to the construction, life and alleged death of the fortress as a result of the assault.

Oleg Sokolov -professor, historian, the hero of Russian reenactors


A prominent Russian history professor has confessed to murdering his young lover and former student and dismembering her body in a gruesome crime that has sent shockwaves across Russia.

Oleg Sokolov, a 63-year-old expert on Napoleon Bonaparte who received France’s Legion of Honour from Jacques Chirac in 2003, was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of murder after he was hauled out of the icy Moika River with a backpack containing a woman’s arms.

Sokolov was reportedly drunk and fell into the Moika, a tributary of the Neva, in central St Petersburg as he tried to dispose of body parts near the offices of investigators.

Unfortunately all this is true.

It is unfortunate that he decided to commit the crime.

He had such wonderful lectures about Napoleon, about the battle of Fontenoy and about the triumph of organized chivalry...

But this does not mean that if one Russian historian became a criminal, then all Russian historians are criminals.

Alexei Isaev and Artyom Drabkin

June 22 - Black Day of our calendar



Annotation:

June 22, 1941.
This day is forever marked in the domestic calendars in black mourning color.
This is one of the scariest dates in our history.
This is the day of the greatest military disaster.

How could this happen? Why did the enemy manage to catch the USSR by surprise? Why were German aircraft allowed to shoot hundreds of our aircraft at airfields with impunity on the first day of the war, and the numerous Red Army divisions were crushed in a matter of weeks? How did it happen that the colossal war machine of the Soviet state failed at the most crucial moment?

A detailed, in hours and minutes, chronicle of the tragic events of June 22, 1941 and an analysis of the causes of the defeat, memories of veterans and eyewitnesses of the tragedy are in the first joint project of historians Artem Drabkin and Alexei Isaev.





Alexei Isaev

The Miracle near Moscow



Annotation:

What happened near Moscow in a few weeks from the end of October to December 5, 1941 can hardly be called anything other than a miracle. After a terrible catastrophe near Vyazma and Bryansk, which consumed more than 600 thousand people of troops of two fronts, the Red Army managed to restore the front, stop the Germans' onslaught on the capital, and later go on the counteroffensive.

In the new book by Alexei Isaev for the "miracle" are given the contours of rationality. Based on Soviet and German documents, the sequence of events is restored, which allowed the Soviet state to stop on the edge of the abyss. For a timely response to emerging crises, composure, quick reaction and almost incredible intuition of Georgy Zhukov were required. And besides, from the pages of documents comes the understanding of the not at all faultless conduct of the defensive operations of the Western Front, with the missed capabilities of defense and counter-attacks at different levels of the military hierarchy.

What is the role of the great "Generals" The Dirt and The Frost in the miracle near Moscow? What role did the numerous horses of the infantry divisions play in the Wehrmacht disaster? "The Splendors and Miseries" of the Panzerwaffe near Moscow. The resilience of cadets and the fury of tank attacks near the capital. All this in the new book of the leading Russian historian of the Great Patriotic War.

The publication is illustrated with unique maps and exclusive photographs.





Alexei Isaev

The Battle for Crimea 1941-1944



Annotation:

This is the most complete, fundamental and authoritative study of the defense and liberation of Crimea in 1941-1944, based on documents not only from the Soviet, but also from the German archives, most of which are published for the first time.

This book analyzes in detail all the operations of the Wehrmacht and the Red Army in the struggle for the Crimea. From the breakthrough of Manstein through Perekop positions to the failure of the first assaults of Sevastopol, from the Kerch-Feodosia landing operation and the unsuccessful offensive of the Crimean front to the Kerch catastrophe and the fall of the main base of the Black Sea Fleet, from the long German occupation of the peninsula to the rapid (in a month) liberation of Crimea in the victorious spring of 1944 years when our advancing troops lost four times less than the defending enemy.





Alexei Isaev

The Battle for Sevastopol



Annotation:

“No name in Russia is pronounced with more reverence than Sevastopol” - these words were spoken by German general Karl Allmendinger, but it was a very accurate statement. The battle for the city, the sea fortress and the base of the Black Sea Fleet became one of the most dramatic events of the Great Patriotic War.

In the fall of 1941, terrible for our country, the enemy believed that Sevastopol was already in his hands, it was enough to reach out and pick it like a ripe fruit. However, this was an illusion. The sailors of the Black Sea Fleet covered the Main Base with their breasts. Then the baton was taken by the army team of General Ivan Petrov, who were able "out of nothing" to create a modern defense that relied heavily on artillery and communications. The Germans needed to concentrate the monstrous power of the artillery hammer and the strongest air corps in order to crush the Soviet naval fortress.

The situation was aggravated by mistakes of defense (that were understandable only in retrospect) made during the period of winter vertigo from success.

Two years later, the Red Army taught the Wehrmacht, and indeed the whole world, a master class on how to advance and defeat among the rocks, heights and cliffs. The defeat of the 17th German army in Crimea in 1944 was very rapid. How did they manage to achieve this?

All these topics and questions are disclosed in the new, richly illustrated book by historian Alexei Isaev.





Alexei Isaev and Maxim Kolomiets

Hitler's last counterattacks. The defeat of the Panzerwaffe



Annotation:

In March 1945, the Nazis made their last attempt to turn the tide of the war by delivering a counterattack in the area of Lake Balaton. Here were concentrated the best tank forces of the Third Reich - SS divisions "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler", "Das Reich", "Totenkopf", "Wiking" and others, equipped with the best soldiers and armed with the latest armored vehicles (for a total of 900 tanks and self-propelled guns). While for the Red Army this direction remained secondary, therefore, the troops of the 3rd Ukrainian Front had to repel the German counteroffensive on their own, not counting on reinforcements from the Headquarters reserve, which were necessary for the decisive assault on Berlin, relying only on their own skill and rich combat experience. And our troops completed this task with honor, stopping the avalanche of German tanks, inflicting a decisive defeat on the enemy and huge irreparable losses. The defeat of the 6th SS Panzer Army became a real disaster for Germany, and Balaton became the grave of Panzerwaffe. In the book of leading domestic historians, this grandiose battle was first described and analyzed at the modern level, using data from both Soviet and German archives.

Ilya Ratkovsky

The Chronicle of the White Terror in Russia. Repression and lynching (1917-1920)



Annotation:

Poetizing and idealizing the White Movement, many researchers noticeably downplay the number of victims in the territory of anti-Bolshevik Russia and question the existence of the legislative foundations of this terror. They reduce the available data on mass executions to the vicious practice of certain representatives of the military authorities and the consequences of "front-line" terror. The historian I. S. Ratkovsky, relying on documentary sources (orders and telegrams), points to the direct responsibility of the leaders of the white movement for this not only in the front-line zone, but also deep in the rear. Ataman massacres in Siberia were quite combined with the punitive practice of generals Sergei Rozanov, Pavel Ivanov-Rinov, and Vyacheslav Volkov, which was conducted with the knowledge of Admiral Alexander Kolchak.





Ilya Ratkovsky

Chronicle of the Red Terror of the All-Russian Extraordinary Commission to Combat Counter-Revolution and Sabotage. Punishing sword of the revolution



Annotation:

Created in December 1917, the Cheka did not only lay the foundation for the Soviet special services, but also became for many the sinister personification of the Great Russian Revolution.

A new book by the leading historian of the Civil War terror (associate professor of the Institute of History of St. Petersburg State University) on the basis of an extensive range of sources, covers in detail the Red Terror of the Cheka in 1918, dispelling the established myths about the activities of the Chekists.

What is the contribution of Lenin and Dzerzhinsky to the creation and development of the Cheka? What role did the assassination attempts against Soviet leaders play in the start of terror, and what was the main reason the Bolsheviks introduced the death penalty? Was the Red Terror a response to the terror of the White Movement and foreign interventionists, the harsh suppression of revolutions in Germany and Finland? How did the Cheka fight the counter-revolutionary clandestine units, crime, opposition parties and movements? What was the staff of the Chekists and did they all pass the test of power? Finally, what is the real scale of the Cheka’s repressions and what was the result of the Red Terror policy?





Ilya Ratkovsky

Dzerzhinsky. From the "Astronomer" to the "Iron Felix"



Annotation:

When the eighteen-year-old Felix Dzerzhinsky joined the revolutionary movement in 1895, he chose the pseudonym "Astronomer" as a clandestine nickname. When he died in 1926, friends and enemies respectfully called him the "Iron Felix."

For some people, he was the man who created the Cheka (chief Chekist) and the organizer of the Red Terror. For other people, the “ascetic knight of the revolution”, who reanimated the Russian economy after the First World War and the Civil War, fought corruption and homelessness.

Who was he really? Who was that man whose honor 1342 city objects of Russia, squares, streets, avenues and alleys were named?

So you're promoting here bolshevik historians who advocate bolshevism as "Great Russian Revolution" and mock anti-communist White Russian Guard.
I wonder how much sh1t is this forum members ready to eat from your hands just because you share their pro-Putin views

How sweet of you to accuse unknown people in trolling instead of speaking to the point.
You did the same in other thread where you protected rapists of Soviet army. If I'm right and you're a communist shill it means you have to be wiped out among with removed antifa troll from comments above.
