History


This Order was named after the military leader Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov (1730-1800), who never lost a battle. The name was used to rally Russian soldiers during WWII, when it was going badly for the Russian forces.

The II Class medal was awarded division, corps, and brigade commanders, as well as their chiefs of staff and deputies. It was conferred for organizing a combined arms operation for a decisive attack against the enemy, for breaking through an enemy defence, and the subsequent destruction of the enemy, for conducting defensive operations against an enemy that is encircling, and for conducting a brigade or armored raid deep into the enemy rear area.

The serial numbers range from 70 to 265.

The obverse Russian inscription translates to: "Alexander Suvorov".
