  Marshal Georgi Konstantinovich Zhukov
by Upstate1NY

On one sense this is a "must do", but in reality it is a "you can't miss this if you tried".

In Kremlin Square, in front of the State Museum, stands a statue of a man on a horse.
It honors Marshal Georgi Konstantinovich Zhukov. The military "genus" behind the defeat of the Nazi Third Reich invasion of Russia which in no small way helped defeat that regime completely.
General Eisenhower, the American commander in Europe is quoted as saying:
"One day there is certain to be another order of the Soviet Union. It will be the Order of Zhukov, and that order will be prized by every man who admires courage, vision, fortitude, and determination in a soldier." -Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1945
