Mikhail Alekseyev (born in Tver, Russian Empire, 3 November 1857 — died 17 August 1924, Moscow, Russian Empire) was a Russian general who served during World War I. He was the commander of the First Army during the Battle of Tannenberg in August 1914, during which his forces were triumphant and he, along with Alexander Samsonov, became a "Hero of Tannenberg". Alekseyev continued fighting during the Vistula—Oder Offensive, which saw Russian forces enter Germany itself. After the war ended, he continued serving in the Russian Army until 1920.
