Notes of a Plenipotentiary
Russian Diplomacy and War in the Balkans, 1914–1917
G. N. Trubetskoi
Edited by Borislav Chernev Introduction by Eric Lohr
“A very important memoir. Very few others had the intimate view of Russian foreign policy and its leadership that Trubetskoi had.”—Ronald P. Bobroff, Oglethorpe University
A prince in one of Russia’s most exalted noble families, Grigorii N. Trubetskoi was a unique and contradictory figure during World War I. A lifelong civil servant and publicist, he began his diplomatic career in Constantinople, where he served as first secretary of the embassy for several years. He became one of the leaders of an important political orientation among the liberals that began to express opposition to the tsar, not only on questions of political freedom and domestic political reform, but also by criticizing the tsar’s foreign policy on nationalistic grounds.
