Splendid little book,

This review is from: A Splendid Little War (Kindle Edition)
As a fan of the RAF and RFC books by Robinson, I had high expectations and was not disappointed. "Splendid" has got the same brilliant characters, humor and aircrew banter that fans of other Robinson titles love. "Splendid" takes on a little known conflict known as the Intervention, featuring British troops fighting (at least trying to fight) Bolshevik forces on the vast Russian Steppe. The sheer size of Russia, the chaotic war featuring anarchist warlords, Cossack tribes and religious sects provide a fascinating backdrop to the story of our heroes doing their utmost to pick a fight, while their comrades gradually succumb to both the tragedy, and comedy of war.
