Left – Maxim Kondratievich Postnov, served as a storekeeper in an army warehouse. He alone repulsed the attack of the German infantry breaking through, opening the “automatic” shooting from the rifle. After the war Maxim Postnoy told his niece that he took a Mauser 98k belt and carbine from the two-meter German soldier he killed. He was awarded the medal “For Military Merit”.
