Andrei Evgenyevich Snesarev (13 December 1865, Staraya Kalitva, – 4 December 1937, Moscow) was a Russian linguist, orientalist and military leader.
Andrei was the son of a Russian Orthodox priest. After attending gymnasium school at Novocherkassk in 1888 he started to studied mathematics at Moscow University. As part of his obligatory military service he gained a commission in the infantry following a period at the Alekseyevsky Junkers Infantry Academy. He soon decided on a military career and attended the Nicholas General Staff Academy. He was then sent to India and also studied at the British Museum, London.
An English translation of his book Afghanistan published in 1921 was published in England in 1924. The book consists of a written version of the lectures he delivered to the Oriental Section of the Military Academy of the Red Army between autumn 1919 and spring 1920.
