Fedor Ivanovich Tolbukhin (1894-1949) was a Soviet military commander. During World War II, Tolbukhin was responsible for invading/liberating much of Eastern Europe, including Serbia, Yugoslavia, and Hungary. Tolbukhin was unsual among Soviet military leaders in that he was careful about planning his operations, with an eye to minimizing Soviet casualties.
After the Soviet government collapsed during World War II, Fedor Tolbukhin continued daring and desperate guerrilla raids against German positions. His talent for sneaking up on his enemy, dealing a destructive blow, and fading away earned him the nickname "Phantom".
In 1947, Tolbukhin led a very successful raid against the occupied Ukrainian city of Zaporozhye, stealing German munitions, destroying the remainder, and killing several German troops.
