Our Military Construction and Our Fronts
Excerpt from Our Military Construction and Our Fronts: Report Read at the 7th All-Russian Congress of Soviets of Workers, Peasants, Red Army and Labour Cossacks Deputies on the 7th of December 1919Comrades, the Red Army was legally established by a decree of the Central Executive Committee on the 22nd of April of last year and later by a resolution of the 5th All-Russian Congress of Soviets on the 10th July of last year. In the decree and resolution referred to the general lines upon which the Soviet Government and the Commissariat for War in particular undertook to build the Red Army and the armed forces of the Soviet Gouvernment were defined. These resolutions prescribed all home-made and amateur methods in a task to which more than anything else amateur methods are inapplicable. It followed therefore that it was necessary to construct the army on correct scientific and regular lines. This was stated quite clearly and distinctly. It was necessary therefore to attract to the work of construction former officers of the Tzarist Army, men better acquainted with military affairs than at that time and even now are the workers representatives. At that time foundations of the Red Army were laid down which characterized our constructive work as a whole. This is not a people's army, or a national army, not a democratic, army not an army of the Constituent Assembly, - it is an army of the working class, which is fighting for the reconstruction of the whole social system. Consequently we introduced class criteria in the army. In spite of protests which many will remember, we excluded exploiting, parasitic, bourgeois and landlord elements.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
