53. Hero of the Soviet Union Major James I. Antonov 25 of the IAP in German captivity, surrounded by German pilots who listen with interest his colleague. It is clear that the conversation is a professional. August 25, 1942 Antonov, performing a task to provide cover for ground attack a German airfield near Mozdok, was shot down. According to Soviet documents - was killed. In fact, the commander of a downed German 77th Fighter Squadron (JG 77), Major Gordon Gollob, Antonov bailed out, landed safely and was captured. The famous German ace Gunther Rall in his book "My log book" describes the capture of Antonov (for some reason, attributing the victory Gollob himself): "September 21, 1942 during the second flight I was lucky - about half past four I knocked MIG-3 very close to our airfield. His pilot was able to jump out with a parachute and escape. Non-commissioned officers of my Staffel immediately drove the car to the place of landing to grab it. 

Russian landed on one of the huge podsolnuhovyh fields, which in these places were set. He was quickly surrounded, but he managed to take only when he shot at all of our cartridges from his gun, fortunately without causing any harm. After he was treated Reza wound on his forehead, which he won by jumping out of a plane, he was taken to me. I just was at radiomashiny, listening to talks pilots. Russian fucking young, just like most of us - he was barely twenty. His straight blond hair with a high forehead, he threw back to make room for the two huge packs covering his cuts. The smart brown eyes equally reflected pride and disappointment. On his lips plays a small smile. His chest is decorated with three medals, of which I know only one - it's called the "Hero of the Soviet Union." So that's what they look like in reality - the representatives of the Mongolian steppe hordes, as is their propaganda, those subhuman, which is unacceptable humanely! Soldier in front of us, who immediately commands respect from anyone who himself is a warrior. I then thought sarcastically, that sometimes the enemy you can Rodney greater than with some people from your environment.

Captain Antonov afraid. The proposed cigarette he immediately put aside untouched, but when I lit one himself, he relaxed a bit. Our tea, cold and crisp, but poured from pure gasoline cans, gives him confidence, while I'm at his eyes did not drink the cup. We found one sergeant and interpreter and sat together, talking about our air combat, war going on. My opponent perfectly kept and full of dignity. He did not make the slightest attempt to curry favor or creep into the trust.According to him, one can understand that the Air Force politofitsery tell us about the same as in the Red Army. Propaganda breeds hatred, hatred gives birth to cruelty, savagery begets a new propaganda. Fucking vicious circle.

The Soviet pilot remains with us for a few days, so there's no way to send it. We have neither the desire nor the ability to keep it under lock and key. Under the responsibility of our Staffel, he gets allowances as any other pilot, and can move freely on the airfield [at the village] Soldiers without constant supervision. Under these conditions, he is not trying to escape, estimating that attitude on our part, in spite of all the regulations. His escape it will cause us trouble and understands it.Later, we will send it to the Ju-52, carrying the wounded to the hospital. And then he uses the opportunity. How - we do not know for sure. But Captain Antonov certainly not arrived at their destination. Rather, he took advantage of the German army coat of those transported on the Ju-52, so get lost and run. But the fact that Antonov had survived the war - I do know from official Russian sources. " Although Gunther Raal refers to some "official Russian sources," but on the postwar fate of Antonov is still not known. Time taken: 25.08.1942
