I hate the Communist Party chapter 179
“Then, can’t I look like someone to play with even with this?”
“… … .”
Broncitane said in a playful way, but when he saw Zugashvili staring at himself with arms folded without much reaction, he spoke quickly.
“I think you knew it. I mean, our Russian Empire was the first to intervene in the early stages of the boxing crisis.”
“Isn’t that natural? Because we are the only powers that have intervened in the Qing Dynasty directly facing borders in the Far East. I would have been able to intervene the fastest.”
“Yes, of course that’s right. In fact, considering that the place where the troops dispatched to protect the legionaries in the foreign residence area were borrowed is the Joseon, you may think that this is a natural result.”
“But you guess it’s not?”
If what I’ve said so far was true, this pretending guy wouldn’t have said it.
After making that judgment, Zugashvili replied as if interesting.
Not surprisingly, Broncitein nodded, as if he knew he would say that.
“To be precise, I was able to do without any problems until dispatching troops in Joseon to the Qing dynasty’s legation area. The worries my department had that I was talking about came from a different location, not from there. The Manchuria region that we dominate this time.”
“Manchurian? No, isn’t that the region where the influence of our Russian Empire was already strong? Did you worry about it, not about Joseon?”
Zugashvili asked, seemingly puzzled.
In addition, the Manchurian region wasn’t a region with more than 50,000 troops deployed from the beginning of the crisis.
I thought that I was worried that the Japanese army would advance to Manchuria beyond Joseon, but soon it made no sense.
Even in the battle between the Japanese and Russian troops in Joseon, it would have been easier to win, considering that they had won fewer troops than the troops dispatched to Manchuria at the beginning of the Euihwadan incident.
Considering that the supply line would have been much shorter, the odds would have been even higher.
Even considering that I could get support directly from the Maritime Territory, I didn’t understand that I was worried about the Manchuria region.
When he looked at Broncitein with an expression of wondering why Zugashvili did that, the glassesman replied with an attitude that he seemed to know why he was making that expression.
“As you can see from your face now, Manchuria lies under the influence of the Russian Empire. Previously, if it was nominally a territory of the Qing Dynasty, it can now be called our land. Perhaps, for the time being, the world map will be painted in the color of the Qing Dynasty, but perhaps, in order for those friends to enter Manchuria, they will have to cross the borders of the Russian Empire or go through the same screening. But I’m still in luck, so I’m thinking the current situation was possible. 50,000 Russian troops… … It’s a combination of words that just listens to it. Isn’t it? D If it was a normal army.”
Broncitane continued speaking in the same tone as his grandfather secretly telling his grandson a secret thing that had happened in the village in the past.
“At the time, the official position of the Russian imperial government was that it dispatched elite troops, including some of the capital defense forces, to protect our property and lives in Manchuria from the threat of the boxers, but that was different. In the early days of the crisis, more than 90% of the troops deployed in Manchuria were cossack hunters raking nearby or Siberian fur hunters. I think it’s easy to understand when you think of the friends you used to carry around.”
Zugashvili, who heard Broncitein’s words, tried to refute something, but he quickly spoke without giving his friend time to open his mouth.
“This is the reason why rapid deployment was possible in the beginning. It was possible because one horse was incredibly well-ridden friends, and it was possible to pay less attention to distribution. Of course, in addition to his hunting skills, he was basically a cavalry, so he could deal with any number of boxers, but the problem was the Japanese army. No matter how bad their friends were, they were definitely modernized regular soldiers.”
The secret confessed by a promising bureaucrat and a long-standing villain was quite shocking.
This is because, according to his words, the Russian Empire alone could have been struck by an injustice and stumbled at the time when other powers were winning and winning.
While Zugashvili trembled with a light thrill, Broncitein continued to speak.
“Fortunately, the pretentiousness of 50,000 regular troops worked, and the Japanese troops stepped in front of the capital of Joseon, so I could have time to send real regular troops to the Far East, but this would have been impossible if the trans-Siberian railway had not been opened. It was possible because your Majesty continued to pay attention from the days of the Crown Prince.”
Broncitane held a breath for a moment, folded his arms, and continued talking.
It was a habit he used to think about or to conclude on one thing.
“If it wasn’t, well, maybe even so, it’s hard to think of our defeat against Japan, but maybe we’d have had to fight more difficult and longer than now. And if it did, other powers would have also intervened, and it would have been difficult to achieve such a great achievement.”
“But it seems like it would have been a useless concern when you saw the depravity that the Japanese military showed in Joseon this time? Even if it was a fight between regular soldiers, isn’t the Japanese military that couldn’t even make a small counterattack? Didn’t you say that it was pushed to Busan in no time, and the damage to our military was very little in the process.”
The young Jewish man smiled quietly when he heard a friend’s words about not that much.
His friend could have been said to be excellent in terms of administration and handling of people, but he was not inclined to overestimate the power of his country.
Probably the influence of what he has repeatedly thought of himself as a Russian in order to get rid of the label of being a minority in the Russian Empire like himself.
He thought this and reached out his hand.
All of his fingers were spread out on his hand.
“It is true that the achievements in the battle that took place in Joseon this time are surprising as you say. On the outside, the result was almost like a fight between an adult and an infant. But this was possible because so many elements were overlapping. First of all, it was the first to lose control, and the local public sentiment was the worst for the Japanese army, so they did not receive proper supply and ammunition.
He slowly folded his fingers and continued.
“Thirdly, the Japanese army’s physical strength is showing a bottom due to the strong march to Hanseong, and the fact that the first factor mentioned earlier did not take a proper rest during the retreat was also beneficial to us. It can be said that this was a difficult war for us from the beginning, considering that we were ahead of us in terms of geography thanks to the fourth Korean-Russian and pro-Russian Koreans stationed there.”
I think we were able to utilize these elements because of the things your Majesty has done since before.
Broncitein swallowed the last horse behind his throat.
It was because, in his mind, it was not easy to believe that the Tsar expected all this.
Until now, it seems that it was not for this moment that Nikolai showed excessive concentration on Joseon.
“So what’s the end?”
“You mean the last?”
“Don’t you just say it’s the fourth element rather than the last element? A person like you who doesn’t seem to have a drop of blood can’t even say that. I wonder what the last factor I didn’t say is.”
As expected, his friend was quick to notice.
I felt it from the days I was educated in the past, but I felt like there was no one to follow.
Broncitein replied with a bitter smile.
“I’m a person who doesn’t seem to have a drop of blood. All I just said is correct. I wonder what kind of person I think human beings are in your head.”
“Do you want to know? Can you tell me?”
“No, that’s it. If I listen for nothing, I feel like it will only make me feel bad, so I refuse.”
A moment of laughter passed between the two.
The topic of the conversation we had just talked about, or the place where the two are now, didn’t suit them, but for a moment, the two seemed to have returned to their teens in the midst of competition.
Soon after, a short time of warm feelings passed, and Zugashvili asked his friend again.
“But that’s weird. In light of what you’ve said so far, I don’t really understand why you were worried about war. If there were such elements, wouldn’t it have been possible with the aforementioned hunters?”
His words made sense.
It was worth doubting why such a cautious attitude was shown from the standpoint of winning and entering not only from the difference in weight of the country but also from the elements of the battlefield or environment.
Because this wasn’t suitable for a country called the Russian Empire.
“Actually, this hasn’t been made public, but let me tell you specifically. In fact, this war did not continue to win and win. Two battalions were on the verge of collapse. It’s also in two companies of the Japanese army. Of course, this information was censored in advance, so it wasn’t known to the outside, but I think it’s enough to tell you that the worries we had weren’t useless worries.”
“… … Not the opposite?”
Zugashvili showed an unbelievable attitude, but Broncitein nodded firmly.
“If you have any hearing problems while I haven’t seen it, it’s probably true that you hear it straight without knowing it.”
“No, it is. How the hell are you saying that was possible?”
Zugashvili was embarrassed and asked, not knowing that the old tone would come back again.
When Broncitein saw the appearance, he could feel the old image of his friend.
No matter how worn and worn out, he and Zugashvili were only in their early and mid-20s.
“It was because of the machine gun. That’s why we somehow tried to send regular troops, not Cossack hunters. If they were put in the same situation, they would have collapsed immediately.”
In response to Nikolai’s words not to disregard the power of machine guns, which had been emphasized for a long time, the Imperial Russian Army had to undergo a major doctrine change.
Even though the era of the front line infantry that had already dominated the battlefield from the days of Napoleon had passed, the main doctrine was the crushing of the enemy through the wave offensive after the primary firepower exchange was made.
And this tactic was just providing fertilizer in front of a machine gun.
Fortunately, since then, machine gun ammunition has run out and this has never happened again.
However, it also proved that their judgment was correct to military personnel who had seen the power of machine guns in the past.
The fact that the two battalions were almost blown away in an instant was driving the army to replace broncitein and other competent officials in the development of the tractor.
It was only this time that I knew that even if the catastrophe did not happen due to the lack of supply and low morale of the opponent, this kind of luck would not occur again in an all-out war against the same powers.
There were only two battalions this time, but it was even predicted that if there was a head-to-head confrontation between the powers, the two divisions would evaporate in one day instead of the two battalions.
