Remembered Today:

Brusilov's stormtroopers

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have detailed information about the assault detachments that Brusilov used in the June 1916 offensive? I have some information from the Osprey Men-at-Arms 'The Russian Army 1914-18'. There is no specific information with regard to the units used in the actual offensive, although there is mention of the grenadier platoons that were created near the end of 1915.

Thanks

Robert

Robert,

I can tell you that the Russia 8th, 11th, 7th, 9th, Armys were used.

I also know that the elite Guard Army ( 134,000) was used to attack Kowel area.

I do not have any information as to what units made up those army groups.

Jim
