Honored Allies Wednesday: Karakoz Abdaliev (USSR)

"Abdaliev fought in the Battle of the Dnieper in late 1943.  In fighting near Melitopol, in modern-day Ukraine, on 21–22 October 1943 he was reported by the Presidium of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union to have cleared 17 houses occupied by the Wehrmacht in addition to having destroyed 23 machine-gun posts, two tanks and killed more than 72 German soldiers.  However, he was killed in the fighting and posthumously awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union and the Order of Lenin for "exemplary performance of command assignments at the front against the Nazi invaders and for displaying courage and heroism"." 

Another ass-kickin' honored Ally!
