Excerpt from Soviets Vs; Democracy The author of this pamphlet, General C. M. Oberoucheff, is an old Russian revolutionist, a prominent member of the Party of Socialists-Revolutionists. In 1889, while a student at the Academy of Artillery, C. M. Oberoucheff was arrested for belonging to the Revolutionary Party "Narodnaya Volia" (The Will of the People) and confined to the famous Petropavlovsk Fortress. As a result of this arrest, the young military student was exiled to Turkestan. During the Revolution of 1905, C. M. Oberoucheff had another conflict with the Tzar's police, which brought about his retirement from active military service. In 1909, C. M. Oberoucheff faced court-martial for belonging to the Party of Socialists-Revolutionists. In 1913 he was exiled and from then on, up to February, 1917, he lived abroad. In February, 1917, C. M. Oberoucheff returned to Russia desiring to serve the country under war conditions. He was arrested in Kiev, but in a few days the March Revolution set him free. The Executive Committee of the Council of Social Organizations of the city of Kiev elected him Military Commissary of Kiev. Later the Provisional Government, at the request of the Kiev Council of Workmen's and Soldier's Delegates and upon the recommendation of General Brusilov, appointed him Military Commander of the Kiev District and promoted him from the rank of Colonel, which he had held in the Russian Army before his exile, to the rank of General. At the end of September, 1917, due to a disagreement with the Ukrainian organizations with regard to the advisability of organizing a national Ukrainian Army, C. M. Oberoucheff resigned from his post and went to Scandinavia as the representative of the All-Russian Council of Peasants Delegates to the International Conference dealing with the question of exchanging war prisoners. From Scandinavia, C. M. Oberoucheff came to the United States. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
