Private Zaitsev was a Red Army soldier who fought in the Battle of Stalingrad in World War II. He appears in Call of Duty: Finest Hour.

October 3, 1942 Edit

Zaitsev and the squad he was assigned to encountered a Panzer Mark IV amidst the streets of the largely devastated city. He and the squad, having been cut off and surrounded, attempted to charge the tank and its escort forces, only to die in the attack. Coincidentally, Lieutenant Tanya Pavelovna and her party were passing through in the midst of this massacre and judged that the presence of the Panzer would prevent them from traveling above ground.

Gameplay Edit

Zaitsev is one of several hapless soldiers the player sees after they follow Private Kirelenko out of the building in Dead In Her Sights. He always dies in the mission, no matter what the player does.

When the player follows Kirelenko out of the building, they'll see Zaitsev perched on top of a pile of rubble. He's usually the first friendly the player will see and identify by name amongst the soon to be dead soldiers. He, like the rest, are only in the game to serve as an example to the player, and to force them to progress through the sewers as the plot demands.
