I do not know the truthfulness of this statement:

"The Bolshevik method of military organisation,—namely, of "Battle Committees," which decided what superior commands should be carried out or rejected—had been swept away and replaced by the disciplined methods of the German and Austrian officers, who had now assumed command." -- John Ward, "With the Die-Hards in Siberia", 1920

Still, while I have yet to find another source confirming this (or contradicting it,) it sounds like something that might have been tried (and abandoned) immediately after the Russian Revolution.

If anyone else has any information on the subject, I'd love to hear it.
