Sergei Aleshkov: The Youngest Soldier In World War II by Tgnnews247: 8:49pm On Jul 27, 2023
Sergei Aleshkov was a 6 years old soldier in the soviet union and the youngest soldier to serve in World War II. Although he did not partake in combat operations, Sergei, however, made notable contributions to the Red Army, particularly during the battle of Stalingrad, where he was awarded the medal ‘For Combat Merit’, receiving a Browning as a trophy pistol from an army general. Here is everything we know about Sergei Aleshkov, the youngest soldier to serve in the second world war.
Sergei Aleshkov was born in 1936, in the forest village of Gryn’, in the Kaluga region of the Soviet Union. Following the outbreak of the Second World War – dubbed the “Great Patriotic War” in the USSR – the village became a base for partisans. In the summer of 1942, German troops unexpectedly arrived in Gryn’, killing the fighters. For their complicity, the villagers, too, were executed.

Sergei’s 10-year-old brother, Petya, was hanged, while his mother was shot while trying to protect her son. Thanks to a caring neighbor, the six-year-old boy, was able to escape through a window, after which he ran into the forest. He wandered until that August when a reconnaissance group of the Soviet 142nd Guards Rifle Regiment found him.
