Dmitriy Andreyevich Furmanov (Russian: Дми́трий Андре́евич Фу́рманов; 7 November 1891 [O.S. 26 October] – March 15, 1926) was a Russian writer. During the Russian Civil War he joined the Red Army and served as a Bolshevik commissar. He is well known for his novel Chapayev about Vasily Chapayev, a Red Army officer and a hero of the Civil War.
