"Partisans, commanders and political workers of the unit! At the initiative of the commander, a decision was taken to make a book of stories, essays and recollections of life and combat activities of the Mikhail Kutuzov Unit. Only with active participation of all the partisans can we fully display all the combat operations of the unit. Write about your assignments, about the best people of the unit. Submit your materials to the editorial board."
Excerpt from the Kutuzovets journal of the Mikhail Kutuzov Unit, Issue No.1, Minsk Partisan Brigade No.2, 1944
