Brest-Litovsk, Брест-Литовск, 1915

В 1909 году под руководством военного министра В.А.Сухомлинова был составлен новый план дислокации войск и стратегического развертывания армий на случай войны. Рубежи стратегического развертывания решено было перенести в глубь страны на линию модернизированных крепостей в том числе и к Брест-Литовской крепости. Среди ряда мероприятий предусматривалось усовершенствование Брест-Литовской крепости благодаря возведению второго кольца фортов на расстоянии 9 - 9,5 км от Цитадели.

В 1913 году было начато строительство второго кольца укреплений (в его проектировании, в частности, принимал участие Дмитрий Карбышев), которое должно было иметь в окружности 45 км, но до начала войны оно так и не было закончено.

С началом Первой мировой войны работы велись круглосуточно с привлечением мирного населения. Ежедневно количество рабочих по укладке бетона, арматуры и др. составляло 70 тыс. человек, также для подвоза в среднем были задействованы 8500 телег каждый день. К весне 1915 года крепостная позиция получила законченный вид, и крепость стала одной из наиболее подготовленных русских крепостей. Однако в последний момент было принято решение крепость не оборонять, а ценное имущество — вывезти. В ночь на 1 (13) августа 1915 в ходе общего отступления крепость была оставлена и частично взорвана русскими войсками.
