Abstract

The role of military intelligence in the First World War has been relatively neglected compared with the revelations that have wholly altered the historiography of the Second World War since the 1970s. The role of Russian military intelligence in that first conflict has in particular been an enigma for many decades, because of the difficulty of archival access. Now, however, a new generation of Russian, European and American scholars are uncovering the role of Russian military intelligence in the First World War, and a series of fresh discoveries combined with the reprint of previously rare biographical material allows one to reach new and more informed conclusions both on Russian military intelligence of the period and on the nature of the Russian revolution itself.
