    Georgy Zhukov, future Marshal of the Soviet Union and First Deputy to during the Great Patriotic War, typed document signed, 21 October 1940.

    Georgy Zhukov, future Marshal of the Soviet Union and First Deputy to during the Great Patriotic War, typed document signed, 21 October 1940. Note the date: slightly over a year into WW2 and less than a year before the German invasion of the Soviet Union. At the time, Zhukov had the rank of General of the Army (four-star general) and occupied position of Commander of the Kiev Special Military District. Less than five years later, he was riding a white stallion across Red Square at the head of the Victory Parade!

    Single-page document, 8'x11"; the text and signatures are on the front only. The document is an official decree stating that eight Court-Martial officers in the district - investigators, assistant prosecutors and secretaries - have passed official qualification exams, and that this fact must now be reflected in their personnel files. Zhukov signed in blue pencil on the left. The document is also signed by the Military Commissar of the District Borisov (in blue pen on the right), and signed and dated in red pencil by Deputy Chief of Staff of the District Lt. General Purkarev.

    Condition of the document is excellent. There are some minor wrinkles and a few staple holes on the left margin. There are no water stains, tears, fold lines or other significant wear.

    This official decree is from an important stage in Zhukov's career. During the previous year, he had led the Soviet troops in the Far East in the Battle of Khalkhin Gol which turned out his first major victory. Now, having acquired reputation for both ruthlessness and effectiveness, Zhukov was entrusted by Stalin to command the all-important Kiev Special Military District. The special status of the district was not only due to its location on the Soviet western frontier and its role in attacking Poland, but also because it was in the process of secretly assembling unprecedented amount of armor and air power in anticipation of the upcoming war with Germany.
