Review Table of Contents
“In October 23rd, 1941, an armored train, named №2 "Za Rodinu", manned largely with local volunteers, under command
of A.L.Bondarenko departed the Voroshilovgrad plant and deployed at Rodakovo (large rail station not far from
Voroshilovgrad). Soon, it was subordinated to the Soviet 18th Army and redeployed closer to Rostov-na-Dony, where
Germans made efforts to capture it. From that moment on the armored train was constantly in action holding the
defensive line between Rovenki and Zapovednaja, and protecting the railroad Donbass-Rostov-Moscow. The armored
train fought with German tanks near Novoshakhtinsk, and destroyed German groups penetrating the frontline along
Novocherkassk-Shakhty rail line. Inevitably in was drawn into the First Battle of Rostov.”
