In this video, you will see something different. Avengers who existed in real life. They had their own "Infinity War", and after watching this video, you yourself will decide who is more worthy of full-fledged artistic adaptations - fictional mutants who received superpowers for nothing or these absolutely real people, photos of which each of us can keep in the "immortal shelf" …
We'll start with a hero who, instead of Thanos's glove, gripped a non-trivial superweapon in his hands - an ordinary ax.
Ivan Sereda, a 22-year-old guy, like all Ukrainian lads, loved to eat well. But he loved not only to eat, but also to cook. That is why after school I entered the Donetsk Food Technical School. Ivan Sereda met the war in June 1941 as the cook of the 91st Tank Regiment.
Once, when the platoon moved to the front line, and Ivan was left alone with porridge and soup, a German tank rolled out straight to the field kitchen.
From the turret of the tank appeared the head of a German, who laughed contentedly, saying something to his comrades inside the car. Ivan rushed to the tank with an ax in his hands. The German, seeing a Russian soldier running towards him, dived into the hatch. A machine gun started working from the tank, but the cook did not get into the zone of his fire. Sereda closed the viewing slots with a piece of tarpaulin, depriving the tankers of the view. The machine gun continued to fire, and then the cook bent its barrel with two blows of the butt of an ax. Then the cook began to pound the hatch furiously with an ax, giving orders to nonexistent comrades.
The stunned and blinded German tankers were clearly at a loss. How many people surrounded them, they had no idea, the fierce blows of the ax on the armor brought the crew to a slight concussion. As a result, the hatch of the tank opened, and four German tankmen got out one by one.
When Sereda's comrades returned to the field kitchen, the following picture unfolded in front of them: a German tank, bound Germans, and the cook, as if nothing had happened, was taking a sample from the porridge.
It quickly became known about this unique case, which later served as a disservice: many began to believe that "the chef Sereda" was a mythical character. But the reality of his feat is documented.
The superweapon that Sereda used was noted in yet another story. The son of a rural carpenter, Mitya Ovcharenko, learned peasant life from a young age - he learned to look after cattle, make hay, chop wood, and, of course, mastered his father's carpentry science.
In June 1941, the war broke out, and the 22-year-old peasant son Ovcharenko became a sled. The duties of the Red Army soldier included transporting food and ammunition by cart to the positions of the company. The task in the war is not the most dangerous, and Dmitry traveled alone. On July 13, 1941, on the road, two cars jumped out directly onto Ovcharenko's lone carriage, in which there were the Nazis - three officers and 50 soldiers.
For the confusion of the beginning of the war, such breakthroughs by the enemy into the rear of the Soviet troops were commonplace.
The officer interrogated Dmitry here, at the cart. The rifle was taken away from him, so no trick was expected from him. Meanwhile, in the hay next to standing Dmitry lay an ax, which the Germans either did not notice, or did not consider a dangerous weapon. Suddenly the Red Army soldier grabbed an ax, and with one stroke blew off the head of the commander of the German detachment.
The decapitated body sank to the ground. The Germans expected anything but such a turn. For a few seconds, from shock and shock, they fell into a daze.
These seconds were enough for Ovcharenko to dive into the cart, pull out three grenades, and send them into the midst of the standing enemies. And immediately after the explosion, an enraged Russian soldier rushed to the attack with an ax. And more than two dozen Germans fled in horror, forgetting about their own weapons, and in general about everything in the world.
True, not everyone managed to escape - for example, one of the two remaining officers, who was trying to escape through the gardens, was overtaken by the Red Army, and again launched an ax, having deprived his head as well.
