Product description


'The most ambitious account on the subject since Evan Mawdsley's magisterial 'The Russian Civil War' … Assiduous and voracious, [Smele] is also intrepid … It is a bracing achievement: this is a book that will long be required reading.' --Robert Service, The Times Literary Supplement

'Analytical, colourful and not only clearly researched but beautifully written, Smele s work is vivid and important, expounding as it does the acute significance of the Russian civil war for the history of the world today.' --The Spectator

'Adds a valuable dimension to our understanding of what is conventionally depicted as the Red-White civil war of 1917-21.' --The Financial Times

'Ambitious and thought-provoking new book ... offers an interesting corrective to depictions of a unitary Russian civil war ... This work presents a masterful synthesis of the best English and Russian language scholarship on the subject.' --Times Higher Education

From the Author

Jonathan Smele teaches Russian and European history at Queen Mary, University of London and has published extensively on the Russian revolutions and civil wars. For a decade, he was editor of the journal Revolutionary Russia. His most recent work is the two-volume Historical Dictionary of the 'Russian' Civil Wars, 1916-1926.
