The Fall of Tsarism

This chapter presents a translation of the Russian-language transcripts of the interview with Boris Aleksandrovich Engel'gardt (1877–1962), a Colonel in the Russian Imperial Army and a prominent moderate deputy to the last Imperial Duma. During the February Revolution Engel'gardt played a crucially important and widely acknowledged role in defeating the forces of the old regime. He was simultaneously a member of the Duma Committee, the first revolutionary Commandant of Petrograd, and the first appointed chairman of the Duma Military Commission. In this interview, Engel’gardt discusses, in greater and more revealing detail than in any of his subsequent memoirs, his work on the Special Council of Defense during 1915–1917, his involvement in pre-revolutionary plots against Nicholas II, and his work as the commander of the revolutionary forces during 28 February-3 March 1917.

Keywords:   Engel'gardt, Special Council of State Defense, Order No. 1, Rodzianko's Order of 28 February, palace coup
