Russian Unit histories WWI connected

Recommended Posts

John Gilinsky

In order to facilitate researchers, to redress an imbalance in the use of English, French or German only sources, etc....I am listing those unit histories written in Russian covering Russian unit histories as found in M. Lyons "The Russian Imperial Army. A Bibliography of Regimental Histories and Related Works." Stanford, California: The Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace, Stanford University 1968

Criteria for those listed below:

a) must relate in whole or in large part to WWI

B) must relate in whole or in part to some aspect or period of WWI including the Russian Civil War

c) may relate to earlier periods prior to 1914 but must still cover some time period of WWI

d) published prior to 1914 BUT encompassing the immediate especially post-1905 Russo-Japanese War period of miltiary reforms

e) rarity of subject coverage such as major unit histories that may only include coverage prior to 1904 but are still somewhat useful as how units saw themselves operating especially in the late 19th. century or early 20th. century

Lyons's work is still the single most important bibliographical tool for such publications. However, Lyons did NOT use nor have direct access to continental European libraries. Bibliographies on emigre literature need to be consulted to amplify Lyons' coverage. It is clear that war and politics of the time played a critical role in silencing the history of the great bulk of these Russian units. While the Imperial Guard and certian cavalry units are well represented there is practically hardly any items representing the great mass: the Russian line infantry regiments. Moreover, Lyons's does NOT include the majority of regiments even. Roughly about 500 new regiments were raised during the war yet these are nowhere to be found. Even the older established line infantry units have virtually NO WWI direct references.

If you have corrections or additions please add them to this list so that others may know of the existence of such works. Especially welcomed will be privately published, locally printed works found only in Russian and other central/eastern European collections both public or private. We welcome all types of unit related publications such as trench journals, unit magazines, souvenir pamphlets, flag presentations, church ceremonies, standing orders, special instructions, etc....

John,

Thanks for posting. That must hae taken some time to compile!

I started trying to learn Russian a few years ago, but as I didn't have any native Russian speakers to talk to I soon stopped. Wish I hadn't.

You are welcome Robert and Grant and thank you for the compliments. Lyons's work as stated in the original post is still used in Russia today as the most important bibliographical tool. Hopefully though this will change in part inspired by this topic thread. Someone perhaps a Russian history or information science(old librarianship remember?)graduate student will greatly expand and update the work or even create an entirely new Russian unit history bibliography. It would be great as well to distinguish unit histories that focus on just certain campaigans such as Borodino, Napoleonic, Crimean, Russo-Turkish and Russo-Japanese, Civil War. I do hope that people around the world start posting additions and corrections to this thread as by doing so people will recognize that such literature is available if not so nearly in such great quantities of course as Western Front unit histories and memoir literature.

Wish there was more on the Russian Army in English.... apart from Cornish's book all I've got is "The Russian Army from Within" by "One Who knows from the Inside", and that was published in 1914. Presumably it was to let people know who these erstwhile dubious people were once they had taken their eyes off our Indian Empire.

The British illustrated newspaper "The Sphere" had a constant special correspondent who actually was given an honourary officer's commission in a Russian line infantry regiment and wrote about his Russian war experiences in depth and served with them throughout the war from 1914 up until late 1917 (after the October Revolution) when things became too hot even for him. Many of his articles and photos were published in "The Sphere." Major-General Knox also wrote a 2 volume memoir of his services as a British military liasion and attache in Russia during the war. An American medical officer was given the rank of Colonel and wrote in English about his medical experiences with a front line infantry regiment. His memoir has been digitized and is available to download and also is readable for free online. Also some Russian women soldiers and/or nurses had their memoirs published in English in the latter 1920's and 1930's. Captain Littauer's memoir was published in the 1960's in English as well.

Hope this helps you redress that imbalance of these Indian envy Russkies!

There is also the British War Office's Intelligence Division's 'Handbook on the Russian Army' of 1914 This covers the pre-war army as it existed on the even of the war and which book is quite detailed, fairly accurate and well organized.

great job!

But... how names and authors of all of these books where provided in original? Is it in Cyrylic?

Lyons's 1968 Bibliography does not specifically state which transliteration he used. As an American one can only presume that the Library of Congress transliteration from the Cyrllic to the Roman alphabet was used. His work does NOT use the Cyrllic alphabet.

Lyons specifically EXCLUDED the voluminuous pre-1914 and large emigre periodical or serial literature as well as memoir literature that did NOT exclusively cover a specific unit, admitting to the latter that many memoirs existed that cover both a unit and other matters or units.

Lyons's bibliography needs to be greatly expanded, updated and revised of course. It is possible that someone in Russia or elsewhere is in fact doing this but I am currently not aware of this.

Hope this helps.

Thank you John for this list.

I found Andrei Lobanov-Rostovsky's "The Grinding Mill" (Macmillan, 1935), useful because not only does it mention his training, but he was also attached to the Russian brigades in Salonika and the Western Front.

I picked up a copy of Lyons' book several years ago and also found it very useful. Some of the regimental histories mentioned in it can be found (and downloaded) on the Russian State Library's website, http://old.rsl.ru. However you will need to type in the keyword in Cyrillic rather than English.

Hope this helps.

I would love to know what Russian unit(s) my grandfather's unit was facing off against when he was shot. On September 23, 1915 my grandfather was with 4. Batterie, Feldartillerie-Regiment Nr. 47 south of Maniewicze, Russia, when he caught a bullet in the leg. Any chance this book might shed some light on that?

Lyons book will NOT help you with ORDERS of BATTLE and/or actual tactical field dispositions - you will need to access the Moscow military historical archives for this - massive and just starting to be extensively used for WWI. You might get a Moscow grad student who might for a fee dip into them for you.

Daniel;

I don't know where you have started on this, but poking through Der Weltkrieg 1914 bis 1918 might tell you something, at least what was going on in the area, or if nothing was mentioned a suggestion that nothing in particular was going on. I think the series has about 4000 oversized pages on the eastern fighting.

Thanks for the compliment and glad that I could help you out. If you wish to furnish any other details as to your family background and their emigre life in Norway (e.g. what happened during 1940 to 1945)that might be of interest to others as well.

Dear John

My grandfather died in 1944, not by the Germans, and not by the gvpu/nkvd. he died quietly in his bed by wounds of the first war. His lungs was not well. (Gas ww1 i think). He had to report to the Gestapo during the first 2 years of the war, then they lost interest of him, probably because he was a nationalist/tsarist. in 1944 there was some prominent pea pole in his home, burning all his papers, there are some rumors from his son, that he have some papers making him judge of life and death in the tsarist system. I have been working on this issue for 7 years, found the Russian family, found a lot of the history about the Orenburg Cossack, Dutov, and my family roots. in his memoirs he talk about the ship Canada,= the earl grey,= the Feodor litke. It is likely that the Norwegian government did hide something (during Movinkel), or my grandfather is not remembering right, (2years). I am working on it today. He made a writing whit a ship whit to chimneys, that is the Kozma minin, so he might been on the Lomosow , ok, this is probably a lot of my thought, can you specify what you want to know/talk about ?

History regards

Hi John,

just tried to send you a PM but it won't take because, I suspect, your inbox may be full. Can you shoot me a PM as I'd like toask your advice about some very specfic units at specific times between 1914 and 1918.

I'm especially interested in Ussuri Cossack cavalry regiment (was there more than one?) from February 1917 - February 1918 and the registration, instruction and graduation of Cadets at Orenburg Military College.

Rgds

Pete

"Austria-Hungary's Last War 1914-1918" the Austro-Hungarian official history is online it does have OOBs and maps and might help id the Russian unit you need. This was mentined on this section awhile back.

There is a site marksrussianmilitaryhistroy.info that has a lot of information on the Russian military its a little weak in WW I but does give a start of the war OOB and has a section on which corps were assigned to which army and when.

Nafzigler does give OOB information on battles from 1618 to 1945
