Khrushchev was proud to have participated in the Battle of Stalingrad all his life, but in fact he did not play much of a role in the entire campaign.

Khrushchev arrived at the Stalingrad front in August 1942. His main job was to check the readiness and morale of the troops and personally interrogate German prisoners. During this period, Khrushchev was once nearly killed.

In November 1942, Khrushchev returned to the Stalingrad front as political commissar. He and Yelyommenko had proposed a counter-offensive plan, but the High Command and the General Staff had already accepted Zhukov's Uranus operation before them.

Khrushchev took part in the entire campaign as a civilian major general, forging deep friendships with a number of important army leaders at a critical juncture of life and death. These included Zhukov, Yelemenko, Moskalenko, Grechko and Linovsky, which helped him greatly in bringing down political rivals such as Beria and in his entire political career.
