The Russian Officer's Code of Honor (English Summary + Full Original Russian Edition)

Советы Молодому Офицеру. Кодекс Чести Русского Офицера

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


ENGLISH: During the Russo-Japanese war of 1904, the captain Valentin Kulchitsky wrote «Advice to the young officer» which actually was the code of honor of a Russian officer. 
A ‘Russian officer’ is a special type of person. It is not so much a rank as it is a title unifying several eras of our history. And far from every Russian soldier can be truly considered a Russian officer. 
This of course is not about innate qualities. Resilience and nobility are learned. So how were people taught to be a Russian officer? In part there was a certain special albeit informal set of rules which a Russian officer was to follow. There were many versions over the years, but here is a list of some of them, which incidentally are appropriate not only for military personnel. 

ATTENTION: The English part of book contains just summary of full Russian edition with original reprint.

Russian: Советы Молодому Офицеру. Кодекс Чести Русского Офицера.

Несмотря на то, что правила и устои касательно чести и совести офицера существовали в вооружённых силах Российской империи изначально, они долгое время не были закреплены документально, если не считать учреждённый при Петре І «Устав воинский».

И только в 1904 году появилась книга под названием «Советы молодому офицеру», где были собраны старые, но вечные истины относительно чести и достоинства офицерского звания, приведенные, в отличие от устава, в форме афоризмов и советов. Благодаря удобной и лаконичной форме изложения, книга приобрела невероятную популярность в России, особенно в военные годы, когда молодые офицеры проходили курсы ускоренной подготовки: только за два военных года, с 1915 по 1917-й, выдержала целых шесть изданий. В наше время, цитаты из этой книги известны как Кодекс чести русского офицера.

Книга, помимо текста, включает репринт издания 1916 года.
