1-213360 Shenk, Robert AMERICA'S BLACK SEA FLEET: The U.S. Navy Amidst War and Revolution 1919-1923 Offers a revealing portrait of America's small Black Sea fleet in the years following World War I. In a high-tempo series of operations throughout the Black and Aegean Seas and the eastern Mediterranean, this small force of destroyers and other naval vessels responded ably to several major international crises. Adm. Mark Bristol served as both head of US naval forces and America's chief diplomat in the region.

Home-ported in Constantinople, US Navy ships helped evacuate some 150,000 White Russians during the last days of the Russian Revolution; coordinated the visits of the Hoover grain ships to ports in southern Russia where millions were suffering a horrendous famine; reported on the terrible death marches endured by the Greeks of the Pontus region of Turkey; and conducted the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of Greek and Armenian refugees from burning Smyrna, the cataclysmic conclusion of the Turkish Nationalist Revolution. After Smyrna, the destroyers escorted Greek steamers in their rescue of ethnic Christian civilians being expelled from all the ports of Anatolian Turkey. 1 vol, 400 pgs 2015 US, US NAVAL INSTITUTE PRESS

1-193430 Smith, John T. Gone to Russia to Fight: The RAF in South Russia 1918 to 1920 After the First World War the British Government, with the full backing of Secretary of State for War Winston Churchill, sent British forces to help the White Russian armies end the Bolshevik Revolution. In 1918-1920 the RAF sent 221, 266, and 47 Squadron to fight alongside General Denekin in South Russia.

The RAF launched attacks on Red Army troops, ships, and aircraft, and dropped bombs on Grozney, Astrokhan, and Tsaritsin (Stalingrad), which was captured by British tanks 23 years before Hitler's army was destroyed there. Many of the RAF men were experienced and battle-hardened pilots, having fought on the Western Front against the German Air Force; the Red Air Force soon learned the quality of their opponents.

With the overall collapse of the White Forces in South Russia, the British were forced to make an honorable withdrawal in 1920. The contribution made by the RAF aircrews to the White Russian cause was nonetheless great, and out of all proportion to their numbers.

This is the first book focusing on the 1918-1920 RAF campaign in South Russia ever to be published, and presents a fascinating insight into an almost unknown period in RAF history.

The White Russian army supporting the Tsar was still fighting the Bolsheviks, particularly in the north of Russia, and the Royal Navy sent a squadron of ships in support of the White Russians, while British troops fought against the Bolsheviks on land.
