Would someone please be able to help me with the correct pronunciation of Preobrajenshote? The closest I can find online a pronunciation for "Preobrazhensky" which also seems to appear in later text, but I don't know if those are two separate things or the same with different spellings.
Thank you!

We got a response from one of our Russian readers...
That's a rather strange case. The name is Preobrajenskoe (pre-ob-ra-ZHEN-sko-ye). It's one of the most famous village names in Russian history, from which the Preobrazhensky Regiment took its name. Preobrajenshote is obviously wrong, but it appears also in the PDF of the book, repeatedly. It seems that the author misread the name somewhere, and immortalized it in this mangled form. There's no correct way to pronounce it. It doesn't sound like a Russian word at all.

I would suggest you go with the more famous village as it seems like there was a typo or misspelling somewhere along the line. Good question, though

Thanks Sandra
