Arkady Lapshin was a captain in the Soviet Red Army during World War III. He commanded a company of tanks. In May 1951, Sgt. Konstantin Morozov was transferred to Lapshin's command after returning to duty from being wounded. Lapshin immediately assigned Morozov to a new tank.[1]

Lapshin helped command the drive on Bocholt.[2] That drive stalled out quickly, as Bocholt's defenders were too numerous.[3]
