Lieutenant-General (06.1940); General of the Army (26.08.1943); Marshal of the Soviet Union (20.11.1944)  After service with the Czarist Army in World War I, Konev joined the Red Army and the Communist Party in 1918. During the Russian Civil War he served as a political commissar. In the interwar years he completed his military education and rose to command of a division. At the time of the German invasion, Konev was the acting commander of the Transcaucasian Military District. He was recalled to Moscow in the fall of 1941 and given command of an army. During the Soviet offensive around Moscow in December 1941, Konev commanded the Kalinin Front (army group) in the decisive struggle for the northern flank. By the beginning of 1942 his command had forced the invaders back over 100 miles. Konev came to prominence during the great Soviet offensives of 1943-45, holding the command of the Second and First Ukrainian Fronts. As a Marshal of the Soviet Union, Konev led the million men of the First Ukrainian Front in the climactic battle for Berlin. Konev's reputation as a conductor of Soviet offensive operations is challenged only by Marshal Zhukov's. At Moscow and Kursk, in Poland, and in East Prussia and Berlin, he demonstrated great capability in handling masses of infantry in the attack. Following the war Konev held a number of key political and military posts, including commander of the Warsaw Pact force and commander of the Soviet forces in Germany.
