History (in memory of those who fought there).
[ From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ]
Pavlov's House became the name of a well-defended apartment building during the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942-1943.
It gained its popular name from Sergeant Yakov Pavlov, who commanded the platoon that seized the building and
defended it throughout the battle.
The house was a four-story building in the city centre of Stalingrad, built parallel to the embankment of the river Volga
and overseeing a large square, the "9th January Square" (named for Bloody Sunday (1905)). The house was attacked by the
German invaders in September 1942. A platoon of the 13th Guards Division was ordered to seize and defend it. The platoon
was commanded by Yakov Pavlov, a junior commander replacing his wounded superior. They were successful, although only four
men survived the combat. Together they went on defending the building on their own. After several days, reinforcements
finally arrived, equipping the defenders with machine-guns, anti-tank rifles and mortars. The men, now a garrison of
twenty-five, surrounded the building with barbed wire and minefields, and established anti-tank and machine-gun posts at
the windows. For better internal communications and supplies they breached the walls in the basement and upper floors,
and dug a communications trench to Soviet positions outside. Supplies were brought in via the trench or by boats crossing
the river, defying German air raids and shelling.
Nevertheless food and especially water was in short supply. Lacking beds, the soldiers tried to sleep on insulation wool
torn off pipes, yet usually the Germans kept shooting at the house with deafening machine-gun fire day and night. The
Germans attacked the building several times a day. Each time German infantry or tanks tried to cross the square and to close
in on the house, Pavlov's men took them under heavy fire from within the basement, from the windows and from the roof top.
Leaving behind a square covered with corpses and steel, the Germans had to retreat again.
Eventually the defenders, as well as the Russian civilians who kept living in the basement all that time, held out during
intensive fighting from 23 September until 25 November 1942, when they were relieved by counter-attacking Soviet forces.
Pavlov's House became a symbol of the stubborn resistance of the Soviet Union in the Battle of Stalingrad, and in the Great
Patriotic War in general. It stands out prominently because the German armies had previously conquered cities and entire
countries within weeks; yet they were unable to capture a single half-ruined house, defended most of the time by just over a
dozen soldiers, in spite of trying for two months. It is reported that the building at the "9th January Square" was marked as
a fortress in German maps.
Supposedly, the Germans took more casualties outside Pavlov's house than they did invading Paris, something that the defenders
boasted of (Paris was declared open city, and hence was not defended).
Pavlov's "House" was rebuilt after the battle and is still used as an apartment building today. There is an attached memorial
constructed from bricks picked up after the battle on the East side facing the Volga.
Pavlov was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union for his actions.

|To answer a few questions, the Russians DO defend this map on a stock server, but due to some very poor S&D coding by Infinity Ward, the allies are defaulted to attack on ALL maps. Test the map on a STOCK listen server, no mods or unpure IWD files and you will find the Russians DO defend. |
If this is still a problem on your server, contact me. Please list ALL the IWD's you are using on your server, with the type of server you run and the ip of your server and I will do my best to find the problem.
This map has been done before, 3 times. There have been 2 very poor attempts at a conversion and the third one is MY beta version, this is the final version of that beta.

|lol Soviet. Perfection takes more than 2 years, but 2 years is good enough to produce a good replica |
Btw, to all those having problems, the issue has been found and it is due to a mod.
The BJustReal Mod uses a feature which changes the attackers and defenders during SD but due to a flaw in the coding, it caused the map to use the incorrect teams.
To solve the problem, the BJR guys have released a newer beta version with the function removed while they find a solution.
