    Dont forget that he was a traitor. He betrayed the Tsar and switch to the bolshevik side. This operation wouldnt be possible without Tsar Nicholas approval.

    Почему то совершенно забыто, что план начальника Генерального Штаба генерала М.В. Алексеева предусматривал широкий охватывающий удар по противнику силами всех фронтов, за исключением фронта Брусилова. Именно решением Николая II было сделано ровно наоборот. Всем фронтам было приказано обороняться и только Брусилов получил приказ наступать. Величайшая наступательная операция должна называться Николаевским прорывом, а не Брусиловским. Принятие этого личного решения, идущего вопреки плану Генштаба, как не трудно догадаться требовало решительности именно с Николаевской стороны.

    What little I know of the Russian history; Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great, Marshal Kutuzov and Marshal Zhukov shine as the outstanding military commanders of the Russian/Soviet history.

    One could possibly include Prince Bagration of the Napoleonic era and Alexander Nievsky, (Prince of Novgorod) for his victories against the Swedes & the Germans. I admit my ignorance that I had not heard much of the Aleksey Brusilov, the Russian WW1 general. It could be because the German military operations on the Eastern front lasted less than a couple of years.
