“I still was proud of the most sweet, for the bitter land where I was born…”
Author: Bykov V.
It has long died down volleys of the great Patriotic war. But it still remember, to tell, to write. And remember and tell, of course, different: in their own way, often on his own. What’s important these days to know and remember about the war? What of the stories about the war can excite the minds and hearts of youth? These questions will help us to respond to the book by V. Bykov, Yury Bondarev, V. Nekrasov, K. Vorob’eva and other authors.
In the Bulls — one of the most widely read writers in the world. His work is almost all about the war. The writer shows us the bitter truth of the war through the eyes of ordinary soldiers, partisans and civilians. Heroes V. Bykov always face the problem of moral choice. The origins of heroism and betrayal reveals in the story Bykov “Sotnikov”. The main characters work — partisans Rybak and Sotnikov. In the early works of these people stand as at least one “limit”: equally risk their lives retrieving the guerrillas food, courageously fighting with the German servants, help each other in difficult times. But once captured by the Nazis, these people behave completely different. Healthy and strong Fisherman is guided by the following principles: “Own shirt closer to the body. To live at any cost!”. Sick and clumsy centurions stays true to its moral principles in all situations. He proudly conducts himself with the Nazis, is a terrible torture, and then execution, but does not say the enemies of the word. The fisherman, however under pain of torture and death goes to the side of the invaders. Bykov is completely on the side Sotnikov, he admires the courage and fortitude of his hero. But at the same time, the example of the Fisherman, the Bulls shows how horrible war is and what the unpredictable and scary things she does with a man and his soul.
I want to write about another author who is also very truthfully shows us the horrors of war is Boris Vasilyev. In his novel “In lists did not appear” the writer wanted to tell readers about the history of Brest fortress. The tragic and heroic resistance of its defenders is one of the brightest pages of the great Patriotic war. Besides, still we cannot say that we know all the details of the war that we know all of her characters. This is connected with many legends and oral stories. Exhibits stored in the Museum of defense of the castle, full of important and not disclosed until the end of meaning and content.
The protagonist of the novel “In lists did not appear” — nineteen-year-old Lieutenant Nikolay Pluzhnikov. He came to the Brest fortress enthusiastic young men, full of the most iridescent dreams about his future and not quite prepared to go to war, which unexpectedly fell upon him with all its weight. In the process of defense of the Brest fortress Pluzhnikov will be one of her heroes, will make a lot of feats, will be the protector and the master of the fortress until the spring of 1942 and was awarded in the last minutes of his life of military honor even from the foe. “He fell on his back. Backwards in the mirror, letting the sun blind, wide-open eyes. Fell free and after life, death by death”.
About the episode depicted Boris Vasilyev’s novel “In lists did not appear”, the legend. But wasn’t the legendary defense of the Brest fortress? It may seem that this is too beautiful words Pluzhnikov: “Man cannot win if he doesn’t want that. Can be killed, but can not win”. But the history of the great Patriotic war knows many more beautiful words, exclamations, calls, and no one doubts their sincerity and reality.
The Approaching Victory Day. Died down the last shots of the war. We, who had not seen it, it is very difficult to judge. But in this wonderful holiday we are going to congratulate our veterans, which every year becomes less and less. Seeing the faces of these people, listening to their stories, we realize how much evil done by the war. The young generation must know the history of the war, its heroes, to honor their memory because they sacrificed their lives for our future.
