Among feats of arms of warriors who protected Moscow in 1941, a great feat of 28 Panfilov’s guardsmen occupies a special place. On November 16, 1941, near Dubossekovo village in the vicinity of Volokolamsk, a little group of brave soviet soldier stood in the way of more than 50 enemy tanks which had been rushing for Moscow. Defenders did not waver and delayed enemy’s breakthrough for 4.5 hours till arrival of our reserve troops. The entire country learned about this feat soon and 28 Panfilov division’s guardsmen became a part of the Great Patriotic War history.
