CHURCHILL'S ABANDONED PRISONERS: The British Soldiers Deceived in the Russian Civil War
Tells the previously suppressed story of 15 British prisoners captured in 1919 during the Russian civil war. Explains how the bitter fighting ebbed and flowed along the Trans-Siberian Railway for eighteen months, until Trotsky's Red Army prevailed. It includes the exploits of the only two British battalions to serve in the East, the 'Diehards' and 'Tigers.' Describes the fractious relationships between the Allies, together with the unenviable dilemmas faced by the commander of the American Expeditionary Force and the humanitarian work of the Red Cross. Includes 16 black and white photos.1 vol, 272 pgs 2019 US, CASEMATE
