Volunteers of Revenge. 10 Myths about Great Victory

Cover Page

Abstract


One of the main problem of Russian and global scientific community is «rewriting» of the historical facts and substitution established concepts. This activity has its purposes, including promotion of own particular interests and pressure on the participants of the events. This trend can also be seen in the works dedicated to the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. The author in his work explores the myths that exist regarding the Second World War, as well as evaluates the works of XX-XXI centuries, reflecting this theme. The paper presents two opposing positions: the position of the representatives of alternative visions of war history and the position of participants of events. The author cites «evidence» and arguments on both sides.
