Europe, as a whole, first heard of General Brusiloff in the opening Gaici campan, soon after the war began. At that time he was at the head of one of the army groups under General Russki. After that he held the command of the principal section of the Southern Russian group of armies, controlled by General Ivanoff. On that brilliant tactican’s retirement, through ill-health, early in the present year, General BDunailof succeeded to the supreme charge of the Russian Southern group of armies. The rapid sedge-hasmmer blows with which he beat in the Austrian front and his full-speed-ahead invasion of Bukovina are characteristic of a man who for years past has been at the
top of his profession and noted as one of the ablest and most daring cavalry eades in the Russian servic. He is sixty-four, but is said to have the energy of a man of thirty and to be tirelese, whether in the saddle or at headquarters Those who knew him describe him as a man of blunt manner and few words, stern on duty and a strict disciplinarian; yet capable, through the devotion he inspires among those under him, of getting the utmost out of at. His maserly generalship has shown itself by the continued sucasses which have areedy resulted in the subjugation of the enre province of Bukovina.
