Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Russian Revolution, Part II
1-19 July 1917: The Kerensky Offensive—The Provisional Government's Minister of War ordered an offensive to placate the Entente Powers, despite the low morale & increasing dysfunction of the post-imperial Russian Army (exacerbated by the Petrograd Soviet's Order № 1) & the war-weariness of the populace; the advance of the Central Powers' counterattack was rapid, deep, & widespread.

Lest we forget.
