The following article directly refutes a key contention of Norman Stone, namely that the Russian defeat in 1915 was exacerbated by a fight between two "schools" of thought: one aristocratic and conservative, the other middle class and modernizing. Rather, the author claims the main reason for the disasters of 1915 had to do with high command indecisiveness in making key decisions - a problem which would haunt the Red Army a generation later.
