As a freak Suvorov, when he was fired into field marshal
After largely due to the skillful command of Suvorov, the Russian army defeated the Polish uprising and took Warsaw, Empress Catherine II made Suvorov as field marshal.
At the same time in the Russian army at that time there were 9 generals, whose rank was higher than that of Suvorov. And according to the unwritten rules in the rank over the head of the elders did not raise.
When Suvorov learned that he had become a field marshal, he literally spread the chairs and started jumping through them just like a child. With each jump, the future Generalissimo called the name of the new general and sentenced “It jumped”.
