Shtykov, Terentij Fomich, Lieutenent-General, Staff Of The Karelian Front

Just listed for sale by a major US dealer:

Researched group of 2 decorations and 10 documents to Col. General Terentiy Shtykov, de facto commander of the clandestine Soviet army in North Korea and Soviet ambassador to North Korea during the Korean War, also ambassador to Hungary in 1959-60. Includes his WW2 issue Order of Suvorov 1st cl. and Order of Kutuzov 1st cl.
Decorations:

Order of Suvorov, 1st cl., Type 2, Var. 2, #257, November 1944 issue; Order of Kutuzov, 1st cl., Type 2, Var. 3, #775, September 1945. Both awards are in excellent condition. Order of Kutuzov comes with McDaniel certificate of authentication showing excellent 8 out of 10 condition rating.

Photo Identification Documents:

1. Ministry of Foreign Affairs ID, 1958 issue, certifying that the owner is Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary (to Hungary).
2. Membership ID of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, 1956, hand-signed by Soviet leader Nikita Khruschev.
3. Membership ID of the Supreme Soviet (Legislative Branch of the Soviet Government), 1954 issue.
4. December 1945 ID of the Narkomat of Defense, certifying that the owner is a member of the Military Council of the Maritime Military District (Far East).
5. March 1945 ID of the Narkomat of Defense, certifying that the owner is a member of the Military Council of the Maritime Group of Soviet Armies (which was renamed Maritime Military District after the end of WW2). The document bears facsimile signature of Joseph Stalin. A curious fact: although the document contains Shtykov's photograph, the last name shown is Shorin – an alias, as used by many top Soviet generals during the secret preparations for the attack against Japan.

"Award Certificates and Appointment Papers:

1. Official congratulatory document on stationary of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, accompanying a Medal for Victory over Germany. Dated 21 June 1945. Hand signed by Nikolay Shvernik, First Deputy Chairman of the Presidium.
2. Official congratulatory document on stationary of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, accompanying a Medal for Victory over Japan. January 1945. Hand signed by Mikhail Kalinin, Chairman of the Presidium.
3. Decree by Stalin appointing Terentiy Shtykov a member of the Military Council of the Special Group of Soviet Troops. This February 1943 document is typed on stationary of the Narkomat of Defense, and bears the stamp of the Protocol Department of the Narkomat. Shows Stalin's name and official position, but has not been signed.
4. Certificate for a presentation wrist watch, addressed to Lt. General Shtykov, member of the Military Council of Karelian Front. Dated 27 Setember 1944. The watch was awarded to Shtykov for his contribution in the 1944 Soviet offensive against Finland. Hand-signed by Marshal Georgy Zhukov, and typed on his special stationary of the First Deputy of the Supreme Commander of the Red Army.
5. Mandate ordering Shtykov to immediately arrive to the front lines to organize combat units of the Northwestern Front. The document essentially puts him in charge of the entire front, by instructing all officers to give him full assistance. Dated 12 July 1941. The order was obviously a desperate measure – by the second week of July the Germans had captured almost entire territory of the Baltic states and started advance towards Leningrad. Hand-signed by Marshal of the Soviet Union Klement Voroshilov, commander of the Northern and Northwestern Fronts. Bears stamp of the Baltic Special Military District – a pre-war name that had not yet been changed on the stamp in the chaos of the first weeks of the war. All documents are in excellent condition. "

"Archival Research Materials (not photographed here):

Xerox copy and complete translation of the award record card (shows serial numbers of all decorations), service record, copy and translation of his autobiography written in 1937, copy of 1937 service evaluations, copies of 4 award decrees (listing Gen. Shtykov among the recipients of the Order of Lenin (1948), Order of Suvorov and three Orders of Kutuzov 1st cl. (he received two in 1944 and one in 1945).


Terentiy Shtykov was born to a peasant family in 1907. In the early 30s he started a career as communist party apparatchik in Leningrad. During the purges of the mid 30s he quickly advanced through the party ranks, becoming the head of a district committee in 1937. During the Winter War against Finland he was appointed as commissar to the Military Council of the 7th Army, and apparently was effective enough to receive a coveted military award of the Order of the Red Banner (relatively few were awarded for that campaign).

Throughout the Patriotic War of 1941-45 he served as a member of military command council of the Leningrad, Northwestern and Karelian Fronts. In 1944 he was promoted to Colonel General - one of very few Soviet political officers who ever reached this far in rank. By the end of WW2 Shtykov had also become one of the most decorated of Soviet generals – one of only five individuals to receive three Orders of Kutuzov 1st cl.

After taking part in the Soviet Blitzkrieg against Japan Shtykov stayed in the Far East, occupying position of deputy commander of Maritime Military District.

In 1948 he was appointed by Stalin to be the first Soviet ambassador to the Peoples Republic of Korea, essentially becoming primary Soviet handler of Kim Jon Il. In his book "Seven Leaders" Dmitry Volkogonov quotes a 1949 telegram from Stalin reprimanding Shtykov when North Korean probing attacks on the South Korean border defenses became too bold. Volkogonov also reveals a telegram from Shtykov to Stalin reporting details of the January 17, 1950 conversations with the North Korean leader. The Soviet ambassador found Kim Il Sung in extremely agitated state, claiming that he had lost sleep over his burning desire to start the attack on the South, but promising restraint as a "true Communist". When the invasion finally started (on schedule approved by Moscow) Shtykov was scolded by Stalin for taking it upon himself to promise Kim help in the form of Soviet military advisers. Nevertheless, Stalin instructed that advisers would be forthcoming – wearing civilian cloth and using the guise of newspaper correspondents.

Terentiy Shlykov was made personally responsible that none of the Soviets is caught by the enemy. Although Shtykov succeeded in ensuring that no Soviet POWs were taken by the South Koreans or Americans during the war, he was eventually sacked by Stalin when the war stalemated. In February 1951 he was demoted in rank to Lieutenant General and discharged from the military.

After Stalin's death Shtykov was restored in his rank and even became a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party. In 1959 – 1960 he served as Soviet ambassador to Hungary. He died in 1964, an important figure in Soviet Military & Political History.
