The Fall of Tsarism

This chapter presents a translation of the Russian-language transcripts of the two-part interview with Lev StepanovichTugan-Baranovskii (1880–1955), a Colonel of the General Staff in the Russian imperial army. From the morning of 28 February 1917 until his transfer to the War Ministry two months later, Tugan-Baranovskii was one of the most senior and influential officers on the Duma Military Commission and devoted his inordinate energies and fine-tuned political instincts to the monumental task of democratizing the old army. This interview represents his only known testimony. It covers the last years of his service in the General Staff, his tenure on the MC during and after the February Revolution, and the efforts by the first Provisional Government to reform the imperial officer corps and the internal organization of the army more generally. Tugan-Baranovskii's account of the political maneuverings leading to Kerenskii's appointment as War Minister is particularly revealing and unprecedented.

Keywords:   Tugan-Baranovskii, Kerenskii, G.A. Iakubovich, G.N. Tumanov, provisional government, democratization of the Russian army, Order No. 1, Petrograd Garrison
