The Belarusian National Army (Беларуская нацыянальная армія) was the defense force of the Belarusian People's Republic, formed in 1918 during the Russian Civil War. Initially formed by the German Empire shortly before they lost World War I, the army saw its first action in the civil war, fighting alongside the White forces. After the war ended, army personnel were trained by members of the Russian National Army, of the newly established Russian Democratic Republic, which was an ally of the new Belarusian state.



General staff

The Army was commanded by the general staff, a group of senior generals within the Army, based primarily in Minsk. The capitol also hosted a general staff academy, to which colonels, lieutenant colonels, and majors were accepted into and trained to become generals on the staff.
