We republish here Trotsky's speech on the occasion of Frunze's death. It was published in lzvestlya on November 13, 1925. Trotsky was at the time the subject of a virulent witch hunt by the rising Stalinist bureaucracy. He had been forced to vacate his post as Commissar of War to Frunze, the choice of the Zinoviev-Kamenev-Stalin triumvirate. Frunze's polltlcal position was close to that of Zinoviev. Nontheless, Trotsky here pays tribute of all the great attributes of Bolshevism Incarnated In the person of Frunze.
