VII
WHY STALIN SHOT HIS GENERALS

The Soviet forces, however, released by the defeat of Denikine, soon drove the Poles out of the Ukraine, and the Red Army began its spectacular advance on Warsaw. Tukhachevsky, in command of the main Russian forces, was within artillery range of Warsaw and ready by early August to throw his entire army against the Polish capital. He awaited the arrival of the Cavalry Army, which, under the command of Budyenny and Voroshilov, had been moving steadily on the south-west front towards Lwow. The political commissar of this cavalry army was Joseph Stalin. The Revolutionary War Council, the supreme political authority over the Red Army, had decided that from August I the commanders of the south-west front were to be subordinate to Tukhachevsky.
Tukhachevsky ordered the commanders on the south-west front to turn north towards Lublin and protect the left flank of the main Russian forces for the decisive battle on the Vistula. On August 11, the order was repeated by Moscow. On Stalin's instructions, Budyenny and Voroshilov, and also the commander of the Twelfth Army, disobeyed these military orders. The cavalry army continued its advance towards Lwow. On August 15, the Poles, whose army had been reorganized by General Weygand and equipped with French artillery, struck back at Tukhachevsky from the Lublin area.

Marshal Pilsudski declares in his memoirs, that the failure of Budyenny to join Tukhachevsky was the decisive factor in the war.
