Product description

About the Author

"Andrei Evgenievich Snesarev was a noted Tsarist general who remained with the Bolsheviks after the Russian Revolution. He was born in 1865. His career as an orientalist began with a lengthy tour of British India. He served throughout Central Asia and traveled throughout Afghanistan, the Pamirs, Tibet and Kashgar (Western China). During World War I, he commanded at regiment, brigade, division and corps level. During the Russian Civil War, Snesarev successfully defended the city of Tsaritsyn against White Army attacks, but ran afoul of the local political commissar-Josef Stalin. Only Lenin's intervention saved Snesarev from Stalin-this time. Snesarev trained Bolshevik officers for the invasion of British India, through Afghanistan. This book is the basis of that training. In 1924, Snesarev was appointed professor and senior instructor of geography and statistics at the Naval Academy. In 1926, he was appointed professor of oriental studies at the Military-Political Academy. Snesarev spoke 14 languages. In 1930, Snesarev was arrested in the Stalin purges and twice condemned to death by firing squad. In 1934, he was given an early release since he had contracted a serious disease. He died at home in 1937 after a lingering illness. " Andrei Evgenievich Snesarev was a noted Tsarist general who remained with the Bolsheviks after the Russian Revolution. He was born in 1865.
