Synopsis

Synopsis

Soon after the February 1917 revolution, and the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II, the White Cause began to emerge and oppose the Bolsheviks. There was, however, no single, united White Army to fight the Red Army and the forces available to the Whites represented a spectrum of political factions including monarchist military organisations and social-democrats. Many of the Cossack hosts also sided with the Whites, seeing it as an opportunity to create their own independent states; others remained neutral or hostile to both sides. This fascinating text by Mikhail Khvostov examines the colourful uniforms and the equipment of the White armies of the Russian Civil War (1917-1923).

On Russian Civil War (1) and Russian Civil War (2): "Each book is a wealth of information essential to anyone interested in the RCW from Murmansk to the Ukraine and Crimea to Siberia and the Far East... What is most striking about all of these books is the evolution of the skill of the artist Andrei Karachtchouk... These books are an essential part of anyone's Russian Civil War library." -HMG
