Дом Павлова :: PAVLOV'S HOUSE

about

The "house" was a four-story apartment building with advantageous sight lines over the Volga river and the 9th January Square. After German soldiers attacked and tried to occupy the building, a platoon of the Soviet 13th Guards Rifle Division led by Yakov Pavlov was ordered to secure it. They succeeded but their platoon was reduced from 30 to (allegedly) 4. With machine guns, anti-tank rifles, and mortars these few defended the house for several days until reinforcement could arrive. Under Stalin's "Not One Step Back" Order 227, soldiers were expected to die defending their position rather than retreat.

Eventually numbering 25, Pavlov's platoon was able to retain possession of this strategic building as well as save the lives of its residents, who hid in the basement for almost three months until Soviet counterattack succeeded in driving Nazi forces back and Pavlov's unit was relieved.

lyrics

RIOT OF FLAME
SHOT
BY ANYTHING
YOU'RE TRYING TO BLOCK A HAMMER
YOU SHOT FRESHLY DOWN
RIOT OF FLAME
BLOOD LIES ON YOUR NAME
YOU'RE NEVER DOWN UNDER
YOUR TINDER GONE UNDER, MY EYE ON THE LANE
LIES
LIES ON YOUR FRAME
TAKE OUT MY AMMO
TAKE OUT MY BELAY
DRY UP YOUR FACE
DIE
DIVE ON YOUR FACE
YOUR GAUNTLET HOUSE
PAVLOV'S HOUSE
