The end of the Great War did not bring peace to Russia. A civil war developed between the Bolsheviks and the 'White Russians' who represented the old Czarist order. A 'coalition' of 16 nations including Britain, America and France became involved on numerous fronts in support of the White Russians. The result was defeat and failure for the coalition forces. This little known and ill-fated enterprise was surprisingly costly in political and military terms. Indeed the intervention lead to precisely the opposite result to that intended. Key Selling Points * A graphic description of a neglected campaign that carried a heavy price. * Extraordinary relevance to present day events. Salutary lessons etc. Vast difference between political intention and reality on the ground. * Superbly researched with large number of gripping personal accounts from British and American soldiers who participated. These range from the tragic to the comic. * The Author (see below) is supremely well qualified to write this account.
