Alexander Kerensky, head of the Russian Provisional Government after the overthrow of the Tsar, appointed him Supreme Commander in Chief of the Russian Army in August 1917, replacing Lavr Kornilov.[1]

Klembovsky later joined the Red Army as a volunteer, but was arrested after the Red army's defeat in Poland by the Bolsheviks and starved to death in prison.[2]
