Establishment of specialized school. School in the formative years of the soviet regime and in the pre-war period (1918 – 1941)
In late April of 1918, Tashkent became the capital of Turkestan Auto-nomous Soviet Socialist Republic, which was the part of the RSFSR. On May 4, 1918, the decree of the Council of People’s Commissars of the RSFSR on the establishment of the Turkestan Military District was issued. The political and military situation in Turkestan at that time was extremely difficult; the young Turkestan Soviet Republic had to wage a fierce armed struggle with both external and internal enemies at the same time. There were acute problems related to organization of troops at that period, there was lack of all types of security. Especially there was acute lack of qualified command staff. In this regard, it was decided to organize command courses. According to the Order No. 456 of July 12, 1918 of the Military Commissariat of Turkestan Soviet Republic, a committee on organization of the Turkestan Soviet command courses in Tashkent city was formed.
IS THE OFFICIAL DATE OF ESTABLISHMENT OF TASHKENT HIGHER MILITARY COMMAND SCHOOL. TURKESTAN SOVIET COMMAND COURSES WERE LOCATED IN THE BUILDINGS OF THE TRAINING BASE AND CASERNS OF TASHKENT MILITARY SCHOOL OF IMPERIAL RUSSIA, BUILT ON PARKENTSKAYA STREET ON THE EVE OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR.
