Thank you, Comrade OP!>>552448
Forgive me, Comrades of the REVMILCOM, for the lack of status reports - I celebrated my birthday on the frontlines yesterday.
But we have good news, comrade commissars. On the 14th day of October, 40,000 men of the Polish, German, and Ukrainian white armies marched upon 13,000 of our own proud revolutionaries. As we danced in joy, celebrating the same month that took Petrograd by storm, Borisov was surrounded. Horses neighed like phantoms betraying the silence of the night, wailing, artillery blotted out the moonlight and replaced it with fire and blood. Men, women, children cut the thick winter air with the sharpest screams and ghosts did scream about the blood-ridden streets.
A young Red Guard came to me, as we watched the falling shells tear what was once a bustling jovial town, and he said to me "Comrade, this is beyond anything we have seen before - and I do fear them."
For years, we had toiled in their factories and in their shops, for years we had bled ourselves dry so that they may rejuvenate themselves with the stolen lives of the proletariat. No more, shall we cower, no more shall they treat us like huddled rats.
We formed an impenetrable wall of steel around the town, our own cavalry had set out to destroy them. Horse-driven guncarts setting ablaze the fields, seeding them with bullet cases. It was ruthless, barbaric, and bloody, but we held strong. For each revolutionary that they killed, we took sevenfold from them. Battered and bruised, their rank fell one by one before they retreated, shattered. They will know our names for this one, history shall remember us as the 13,000 men who held off the corrupt strength of these 40,000 bandits with naught but revolutionary mettle and vigour in our hearts.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0_UPKVHqAg
