This is a 11 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War I - Key Battles of 1917 - Kerensky Offensive. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The offensive was ordered by Alexander Kerensky, Minister of War in the Russian provisional government. The decision was ill-timed. Following the February Revolution, there were strong popular demands for peace, especially within the army, whose fighting capabilities were quickly deteriorating.
Discipline within the Russian Army had reached a point of crisis since the Tsar's abdication. The other troops, for the most part, refused to obey orders. Soldiers' committees discussed whether the officers should be followed or not. No orders were obeyed without preliminary discussion by the divisional committee, usually too late.
Far from strengthening Russian army morale, this offensive proved that Russian army morale no longer existed. No Russian general could now count on the soldiers under his command actually doing what they were ordered to do.
This presentation covers the following:
