General Mehmandarov Samedbek


The future military general of the Russian Imperial Army and the creator of the national army of Azerbaijan came from a notable Karabakh Bek family. His father - Mirza Sadyhbek Mehmandarov - by the nature of his service at the beginning of 1840, he moved from Shoushi to Lenkoran, where he held the post of Mugan bailiff of the Lenkoran district administration and had the rank of a titular adviser (in modern terms - he was the head of the local police as a major). Samedbek Mehmandarov was born on October 16 on 1855 in Lenkoran; he was educated at the Baku gymnasium. 1 began his military service on September 1873 by the junker of the 25 Konstantinovsky Military School in St. Petersburg, after which, in 1875, with the rank of warrant officer, he was sent to serve in the 1 11th Turkestan Artillery Brigade.

The military career of Samedbek Mehmandarov in the officer ranks of the first quarter of a century of service was winding and not at all brilliant: the front ranks were occupied by elderly generals and officers, and there was simply no place for the young officer. Therefore, for many years he was engaged in military administrative and military judicial work at the headquarters of various artillery units and formations. Nevertheless, he served properly and in good faith, in a timely manner receiving production in the next ranks and orders for years of service. During 25 years of irreproachable service, he rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel, he had three orders for “irreproachable service”, which by the standards of that time was a sign of a rather successful career.


In any army in the world there are officers whose element is war. They seem to be born to win honors on the battlefield. Vivire est militare - spoke Rudyard Kipling. To live is to fight. Mehmandarov was one of those people. For almost a quarter of a century, he seemed to be waiting for the start of hostilities, in order to climb the commanding general in all greatness. For the first time, he forced to talk about his commanding talent during the campaign of Russian troops in China in 1900 – 1901.

As commander of the battery, he distinguished himself during the siege and surrender of the city of Qiqihar. At the same time, he refused, despite a written order from the command, to shoot Chinese soldiers who had abandoned weapon and ran home. Despite the clear violation of the order, humanism and the nobility of the commander were not put him to blame. Moreover, they brought the rank of colonel and the Golden (from 1913 of the year - St. George) weapon "For Bravery". Whatever you may say, but in the Russian Empire, the officers honor and nobility of the soul were valued higher than the blind obedience to the order.

For military merits in the defense of Port Arthur, Samad Beg Mehmandarov was awarded several military orders and gold weapons, and was given the rank of Major General. The officers who served with General Samedbek Mehmandarov and the officers who knew him personally spoke with great respect about his unshakable composure and unparalleled courage.

When the 16 of December 1904 of the military council of the Port Arthur fortress voted for unconditional surrender, General Samad-bey Mehmandarov and his valiant officers expressed strong protest against this.

On January 26, at night, the Japanese attacked the Retvizan, Tsesarevich and Pallas cruisers, which attacked the Russian squadron in the harbor of Port Arthur. The war began. The next morning, Samad Bek Mehmandarov is appointed commander of the seventh East-Siberian shooting and artillery battalion. This was the order of the commander of the ground forces, Major-General Roman Kondratenko. Roman Isidirovich knew Mehmandarov well, highly appreciated his resilience and restraint in a combat situation, his talent and skills of a commander - he knew him as a person you can rely on. That is why he appointed Samad-bek as head of the Eastern Front. He was considered the most important front in the defense of Port Arthur, and the Japanese, respectively, concentrated their most striking forces here. Their powerful assaults followed one after another, and the shelling did not cease. Colonel Samed Bek Mehmandarov was one of the closest assistants to Commander Kondratenko. Already directing the actions of the gunners in the besieged fortress, Mehmandarov invariably was at the forefront, on the most dangerous sectors of the front, with smashing fire suppressed samurai attacks.

From the beginning of the epic of Port Arthur one hundred and four years have passed. During this century, thousands of literary, scientific and journalistic works have been published in Russian with hooks. Especially a lot of diary entries and memories on this topic falls on 1905-1910 years. Released in 1906, the book by P. Larenko "The suffering days of Port Arthur" is from this series. In her testimonies of eyewitnesses reflected not only the outstanding commanding qualities and combat skills of our compatriot Samad Bek Mehmandarov, but also his greatness as a person. Fragments from the diary offered to the readers cannot fail to evoke a sense of pride in our illustrious countryman.

In the “November Storms” chapter, on the 494 page: “Even during the August bombing raids, the Japanese noticed that from somewhere behind the line of the forts they were shooting at them very well. The Seventh East Siberian Artillery Division (ie field artillery) under the command of the colonel Mehmandarova took shelter of the position behind the line of fortifications of the attacked front of the right flank and rendered great services to the defense, as the fortress artillery suffered greatly in the first days of the bombardment. The field artillery beat off the most desperate assaults and fought from near of Japanese batteries very successfully. "

On the 597 page: "S. came in and told that from artillerymen on the attacked front, Colonel Mehmandarov (commander of all the artillery of the right flank) and Lieutenant Colonel Stolnikov are surprisingly disdainful of personal danger; - they approve of others. The first of them is chivalrous, brave, like a Caucasian, the second, as it were, calmly and selflessly subjugated to fate, like a religious person.

The share of field artillery here is mainly the task of fighting off assaults - the destruction of enemy columns with shrapnel and grapeshot. Since the fortress guns suffered greatly, and the field artillery changes positions as needed, it is difficult for the Japanese to fight it; and she breaks them down. "

On the 606 page (11 / 24 of December): “From the conversation with the wounded officers I learned something else about Colonel Mehmandarov. He is self-respecting, brave and strictly demanding of his subordinates; he is obliged to show examples of personal courage. Being a man He says that he appreciates only people who are reasonably proud, who are capable of great deeds, and that the main dream of career officers is to save their lives and get orders without merit. "

On the 630 page (17 / 30 December):
"To the question whether our artillery position deteriorated with the fall of 3 fort, Colonel Mehmandarov replied that he did not find any deterioration, that 3 fort has no influence on the artillery situation.

Only General Fok avoided a direct answer - he spoke a lot of words from which no conclusion could be drawn ... "

On the 643 page (18 / 31 December):
"Someone brought the news from the standpoint that today between General Fok and Colonel Mehmandarov a serious dispute. Fock insisted that the fortress could no longer hold, and Mehmandarov argued that the fall of some fortifications did not mean that the end of the fortress had already come, A second line of defense can still be held.

On positions rare skirmish. Dark. In the direction of the fort 3, or the Rocky Ridge, you can see some kind of red lights. They are said to indicate to our orderlies where the dressing stations are.

I feel very tired, so I go to bed now. "

On the 690 page (December 23 / January 5):
"S. informed me that yesterday the chief of the Japanese artillery with headquarters arrived at the fortress and tracked down the colonel (produced during the siege to the major general) (1) Mehmandarova, the artillery commander of the right flank of the fortress, who actually led the artillery there from half of the month of August. it was made a reservation that the guests of honor were wrong, that they probably want to see the head of the serf artillery, General Bely, but they answered him that it was interesting for them to meet their honorable adversary with whom they had to They said a lot of compliments. They admitted that the losses of the Japanese artillery under Arthur were large - up to 25 thousand people - that a lot of Japanese guns were destroyed.

General Mehmandarov went into captivity; He is one of the most ardent opponents of the surrender and departure "home" on parole.

In 12 hour. of the day It was among the wounded. Everywhere the same talk - about the surrender of the fortress and about captivity. "

On the 752 page (3 / 16 of January): “Disputes arose regarding the“ seizure of power ”, different opinions were expressed, for example, F. and S., who were all the time on the fighting positions of the right flank, noticed that somehow, positions, in their presence when talking on the same topic, Colonel (now General) Mehmandarov said:
- What does it mean to "seize power"? I do not understand this! If I, for example, are the commandant, try to capture your superior, you will not leave this place without finding out which of us is the commandant, who is not! I would not have been shaken by any calculations, no bad consequences. "
The merits of Samad-bek Mehmandarov, who was constantly at the forefront of the battle for Port Arthur, constitute a special page in the annals of the Russian-Japanese war. Evidence of this is the diary entries of Russian journalists, Samad-bek’s contemporaries.

Journalist Ye.K. Nozhin was a special correspondent for the newspaper Novy Kray published in Port Arthur. He is the author of interesting diaries, which led, while on the firing line. The journalist’s notes clearly indicate that he always saw General Samad Bey Mehmandarov at the forefront. A Russian journalist also talks about how the warlord, an Azeri, grieved for his homeland, the Caucasus:
"I went into the dugout. General Nadein, always calm. The head of his headquarters is Stepanov, weary. Several officers. Colonel Mehmandarov.

The latter enthusiastically recalled his native Caucasus. Greeting, he continued:
- Caucasus - very good! Nature put a seal on everything, with a guarantee for goodness. But the trouble is: where you need a stone, it is not, where it is not needed, there is darkness. Where water is needed - there is no water, where there is no need for it - its sea ... Everything is good, only we are promised seven heavens in paradise, and what do you think? They are all round eyes. Well, is not it annoying? And you know, now I do not want anything: neither paradise nor gury. I just want some rest.
Indeed, projectiles are constantly circling around. Two burst on the dugout roof. "

The comrade Samad-bek Mehmandarova, General Aliaga Shikhlinsky, in his book of memoirs tells how Samad-bek in the most difficult, most difficult combat situation never lost his temper. On the 14th of October, he writes, during the strongest shelling of the fortress, Samad-bek Mehmandarov arrived at the position I occupied. This position was subjected to Japanese artillery shelling from guns of various calibers - from eleven-inch guns to thirty-millimeter ship. In addition, she was kept under sighting rifle and machine-gun fire. A six-inch projectile exploded not far from Mehmandarova, and it was sprayed with black mud, which was tossed out, but it did not hurt. Without giving it any importance, he coolly took out a snow-white handkerchief from his pocket and began to peel off the dirt, some of his beautiful overcoat was stained.


The new rise of the military career of the general was associated with the First World War 1914 – 1918, and his participation in the events of that war was not only heroic, but also legendary. He met with the war as commander of the 215 Infantry Division of the 35 of the Caucasian Army Corps as part of the Warsaw Military District. This was unusual for absolutely everything: the artillery general commanded the Caucasian infantry in 2 thousand km to the north of NNUMX west of the Caucasus! But this circumstance did not affect the commanding talent of Mehmandarov: with his victories he proved that an artilleryman at the head of the infantry could successfully smash the enemy. [u] Only in one Galician 5 battle of the year, he consistently defeated the German and Austrian troops in three combat operations, for which he was awarded the Order of St. George 1914-th degree and Georgievsky weapons, decorated with diamonds, and promoted to the rank of artillery (and this again for the command of the infantry).

В stories The Russian Imperial Army, General Mehmandarov, was a unique commander who received the Golden and St. George weapons “For Bravery” (with diamonds). Before Mekhmandarov, none of the military generals was honored with this honor, and only eight people had St. George’s arms with diamonds.In December 1914, Mehmandarov was appointed commander of the 2 Caucasian Army Corps, at the head of which he defeated the German and Austro5 Hungarian troops several times, for which he received all the highest awards, including the second most important order of St. Alexander Nevsky in the hierarchy of orders of the Russian Empire swords. The corps of General Mehmandarov did not know defeat and was assigned to the most dangerous and responsible sectors of the front

Samad Bek Mehmandarov found particular fame after the operation to destroy the Germans in the Lodz district of 15 in September of 1914. The troops of the German General Mackenzie, taking a powerful assault on Ivangorod, began to develop an offensive on Lodz. The retreating Russian troops were in a difficult position. The Germans who attacked all along the front line tried to encircle a part of the Russian units opposing them. The division Samad Bek Mehmandarov consisted of 81-th Absheron, 82-th Dagestan, 83-s Samur and 84-th Shirvan regiments, each of which had its own fighting traditions.

The commander of the corps, who was seriously worried about the fate of the units entrusted to him, through a telephone connection, consulted Mehmandarov about the situation on the front. In response, the military sounded clearly: “The situation is grave. Going on the offensive! ”

At that time, as the two Russian divisions retreated in panic, Mehmandarova’s division dealt crushing blows to the confidently advancing enemy, forcing them to retreat to their original positions. Three days after the bloody battles, the division Samad bey Mehmandarova stormed Ivangorod. A successful operation under the command of Samad Bek interfered with the plans of the German General Mackenzie and saved two Russian divisions from shameful captivity.

General Aliaga Shikhlinsky, who in the course of that operation occupied the post of special commissioner at the Main Field Artillery Inspectorate, later wrote:
“I was summoned to the Western Front to check on the state of affairs with heavy field guns, new to the Russian army. Having walked around seven hulls, I was convinced that only in the Samad bey Mehmandarov's hull the purpose of heavy guns was correctly understood and they were arranged according to their functions. It was not the merit of the corps gun inspector, but the result of the work of a skilled artilleryman Mehmandarov. ”

Contemporaries are very sympathetic about the courage of Samad bey Mehmandarov, his friendly treatment of his subordinates. This is what Major Hajiaga Ibrahimbayli writes:
“In the First World War, General Mehmandarov won great honor and respect. The boundless boldness of the general, tremendous composure in the crucial and terrible moments of the battles earned him deserved fame in the Russian army. Mehmandarov loves fair, conscientious, truthful people, gives them support, but he is extremely merciless to the dishonest. Personally knowing Mehmandarov unanimously asserted that all subordinates were afraid of him like a fire, but loved the general, selflessly believed him. ”

“Samad Bey Mehmandarov treated the ordinary soldiers equally well, at the right moment he came to help everyone. Mehmandarov is a rare artilleryman, ”these words belong to the commander of the Red Banner Caucasian Army, Ion Yakir, who personally wrote them into a personal matter, Samad Bey, who worked in 1925 during the year as a teacher at the Azerbaijan Joint Military School.

Is it any wonder that he met the February revolution in Russia 1917 extremely negatively and in March he left the active army and left for Vladikavkaz, where he settled as a private person. But the time of his absence in the military system was extremely short: on November 1 he was appointed Assistant Minister of War of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic, and December 25 - Minister of War. Under his direct leadership, the formation of the national Azerbaijani army began, which was not completed for a number of foreign policy reasons. But in a short time I was able to organize an army that defeated the Dashnak detachments and freed the territory of Azerbaijan completely from the gangs!
After sovietization of Azerbaijan in April 1920, the general from artillery Mehmandarov was enlisted in the ranks of the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army, in which he served up to 1928 in staff, teaching and military scientific posts, creating, in fact, a system for training officer personnel for the Transcaucasian Military District The Armed Forces of the USSR and the states of the South Caucasus. Samadbek Sadyhbek oglu Mehmandarov was one of the rare military leaders who combined the talent of a military leader and a military administrator, which allowed him to calculate strategy and tactics and win victories on the battlefield. His image is a vivid reminder of what a true officer should be.

    Thanks Alibek! Very good article! A small addition: according to the memoirs of Ali-Aga Shikhlinsky, during the "boxing uprising" in China, Mehmandarov really refused to shoot at the unarmed Chinese. After a second order from the commander, he opened fire over the heads of the unarmed column. "After that, the officers came up and firmly shook Mehmandarov's hand for this act. . "

      I specifically did not give moments in the article where they tried to humiliate him by giving the order to clean the streets with a broom!
      About how they tortured their son to testify against his father!
      I think this is for a separate article!

      The year 1908 brought Samad Bek two great joys - on July 13 he was awarded the rank of lieutenant general, and on November 18 in Irkutsk he had a son, whom he named by an unusual name - Pir. Igor (this name he bore in his subsequent life) was subjected to unheard of torment only because he was the son of General Mehmandarov.
      “After the death of my father, my mother and I often began to be called for interrogations at the Cheka,” Igor recalled during a conversation with him in Baku in 1988. - They asked a lot of questions, tortured, trying to knock out "true testimonies" from us. And once, driven to despair, I could not resist and directly asked - for what they beat me, what do they want to get from me? “I have no answers to your questions, but I can’t pretend and lie to please you? Tell me, what is my fault? ”I asked the executioners.
      “You haven’t chosen a good parent, that’s your fault.” They answered me.

        From the memoirs of Mehmandarov's son: “The next morning after the 11th Red Army entered Baku, my father’s friends came to us and began to persuade him to hide for a while. He refused cotigorically - my fate is forever connected with my Motherland. Then he took me and went to Ministry of War - to hand over cases in all form. They were already waiting for him .... "

    After the brutal suppression of the anti-Soviet uprising in Ganja at the end of May 1920, almost all officers of the Azerbaijani national army were arrested, including S. Mehmandarov and A. Shikhlinsky. They were saved from repression only by the intervention of the then head of the Council of People's Commissars of Azerbaijan Nariman Narimanov, who sent the generals to Moscow with an accompanying letter to V. I. Lenin with the following contents:

    A. Shikhlinsky in the form of commander of the Red Army. February 17, 1929 Dear Vladimir Ilyich!

    During the Ganja uprising, all officers of the old Azerbaijani army were arrested, among them were the givers of this famous generals Mehmandarov and Shikhlinsky.

    After a thorough investigation, it turned out that these generals were not involved, but nevertheless, before strengthening our position and in order to help our common cause, we decided to send them at your disposal for work at the headquarters, since they, as military specialists, are irreplaceable. One of them, Shikhlinsky, was considered the "god of artillery" in the tsarist army.

    Before the end of the Polish front, let them work in Moscow, and then I ask you to send them to us to form our units. It is necessary during this time to look after them.

    Their political conviction: they hate the Musavatists, are convinced that Azerbaijan cannot exist without Soviet Russia, they are enemies of England, they love Russia.

    With communist greetings.

    N. Narimanov.

        The influence of the Turks on the Armenian culture was quite noticeable. You can recall a lot of books written in the Armenian alphabet but in Turkic, which are still stored in the Matenadaran (I hope I wrote it correctly).
        Azerbaijanis are a people formed from two main components - the indigenous multilingual population of the Caucasus + alien Turks. They have every right to call themselves autochthonous inhabitants and at the same time consider themselves descendants of the Türks (at least culturally). There is no paradox. This people has developed in two parts. Just like the Kazakhs, a nation formed of Iranian-speaking Scythians (Saks) and Turkic tribes (including those tribes that came from present-day Mongolia in the 13th century with Genghis Khan).
        In this regard, one can recall the Turks of Turkey, who formed (to a greater extent) from the inhabitants of Byzantium (Greeks, Kurds, Armenians, Jews) and Oguz Turks.

        And this is a snack:
        German activist and scientist Kolmer von der Goltz, "Anatolian sketches"
        "Everyone who is familiar with the bulk of the population in the provinces of Anatolia quickly gets used to respect and love the Turks, despise the Greeks and hate the Armenians. The local proverb" a Greek will deceive two Jews, and an Armenian will deceive two Greeks "justifies itself everywhere. If anywhere in Anatolia you deceived, then we can say with certainty that you met with the Armenians. I do without any written agreement when I deal with a Turk, because only his word is enough. When I deal with a Greek or other Levantines, I conclude a written agreement, because with them you cannot do business otherwise. With the Armenians, I do not even have any written confirmation of business, because even a written condition will not save Armenians from intrigues and lies. "

      so be it, let’s say we are nomads, but then why all the food of nomads - KHASH, KYATA, LAVASH, SHASHLIK, KHASHLAM - you always present as the most ancient Armenian dishes, because you are the autochthonous population of the Caucasus, you should have your own dishes, related by classification, by cooking methods, by homogeneity to the settled population ..... stop

      Mayevsky Vladimir Feofilovich, Vice-Consul of Russia in Van and Erzurum

      The Armenians of the city make up the main trading class of the population of those cities where there are no worthy rivals — the Greeks. Armenians industrialists and artisans are also concentrated exclusively in cities. Both of them form well-known proportions in order to better exploit their fishery.
      In the character of urban Armenians, it should be noted some features that appeared in them, it seems, only from very recent times. An Armenian citizen who has come into contact with some kind of education and has completed at least an elementary parish school gains a very high opinion of the political significance of the Armenian nation; in general, he has a wonderful vanity, arrogant tone, great conceit, and some special confidence that that if the Armenians at present do not play a big political role, it is only because they are under the yoke of Turkey; but in the future, the Armenian nation will certainly be reborn and will occupy an appropriate political position for it.
      Further, among urban Armenians, and especially among young people, one cannot help but notice a greater number of people who like to engage in all kinds of politics, who generally willingly flaunted their supposedly subtle understanding of all kinds of political combinations ...
      What were the gangs of revolutionaries made up of? Of the people who defend the interests of their rhodiras, their family centers, urban undereducated youth, bewildered by the inflamed speeches of the main agitators, in general, people who are very narrow-minded and do not understand even the simple thing that their activity could not improve the situation of Turkish Armenians, but rather only worsen ....
