During the fighting for Mine nr. 21 Captain Zhukov carried out an important task, assigned to him by the army’s Military Council. He stayed at the front line amid the fighting for 12 hours and, in spite of unceasing aerial bombardments, correctly analyzed the situation, regularly informing the Military Council. In exceptionally complex conditions during the fighting along the Don River, Comrade Zhukov carried out important tasks assigned to him by the Military Council.
