20m 1s

‘A resounding success.’ ‘Brilliantly organised.’ ‘A well-oiled machine.’ These are some of the phrases you will never hear about the Russian war-effort from 1914 to 1917. Given the defeats, the deaths and the misery the war brought, it’s a wonder that Russia was able to fight on as long as she did. Key question considered: Why did Russia go to war? Content covers: The state of the Russian army. The defeats at Tannenberg and Masurian Lakes. The Tsar takes personal command of the army. Politics in Russia during the Tsar’s absence. The Brusilov Offensiv
