Забытые участники войны: перспективы изучения отдельных штурмовых офицерских батальонов

Historia Provinciae. 2020. Vol. 4. No. 2. P. 471-502.

The article presents the sources of information available today about detached storm officer battalions, the unique military formations of the Red Army during the Great Patriotic War. The author analyses the question why this topic is not of interest to the society and professional historians. The article reveals the traumatic character of the subject for memoirists, the difficulty in choosing the proper context (repression or a feat), and the presence of this topic within the scope of amateur military history.
