Political manoeuvring, hardening positions and rumours of an impending coup had cursed the Directory from the beginning. On the night of 17/18 November, key Russian officers in Omsk arrested the members of the Directory and installed Admiral Alexander Vasilievich Kolchak as 'Supreme Ruler of All the Russias'. The details behind this event have remained controversial to the present. According to Boldyrev, General Maurice Janin (head of the French Military Mission) and subsequent Soviet history, Kolchak and the British Military Mission in Omsk engineered the coup.
Armoured trains and troop trains overloaded with Red Guards overturned Ataman Dutov's Orenburg Cossacks in January 1918, taking his capital on the 31st of that month. Red Guards converging south from Kharkhov and north from the Causcasus similarly defeated Ataman Kaledin's Don Cossacks in February. Kornilov's Volunteer Army was too small to be considered a serious threat. A. Z. Zhelezniakov, an Anarchist sailor who fought the Don Cossacks in 19 18. In 1919 he commanded a formation of armoured trains against Denikin.
From April 1918 until September, Kolchak tried and failed to form a credible coalition between White elements in the Far East or to establish cooperative relations with Japan. Frustrated, he left Vladivostok on 21 September and headed for the front in the west. Almost immediately after arriving in Omsk on 13 October, the Directory placed him in charge of the Ministries of the Army and the Navy. On 9 November he began a tour of the front in his new capacity, returning on the evening of the 16th, scarcely a day before the coup.
