8 A project to stimulate Japanese intervention in Siberia had been under discussion since the previous December, when the Allied Military Representatives at Versailles had submitted Joint Note No. 5 recommending the opening of a direct line of communications to friendly groups in Russia through Vladivostok and the trans-Siberian railway. It was in fact only two days after the interview with Trotsky that the War Cabinet decided to seek the concurrence of the United States Government in such a project.
Soon, however, it was clear- and confirmed by a telegram from the Military Attache in Petrograd - that there was no prospect of Kerensky regaining power. Moreover, the Bolsheviks were quickly extending their control over the country and, within a week, held not only Petrograd and Moscow, but many provincial centres. It was clear, too, that they were resolved to end the war against Germany. As the Boshevik power grew, so the issues with which the British Government was confronted were sharpened.
His view was embodied in a formal memorandum in which it was stated that unless Allied intervention in Siberia was undertaken forthwith 'we have no chance of being ultimately victorious and shall incur serious risk of defeat in the meantime'. British and French reserves would have been exhausted by June 1919 and the Germans might then obtain a decision in their favour in the West. In any case, 'No military decision in the Allies' favour can ever be expected as a result of operations on the Western front alone'.
