    BAD

    Poorly written. No footnotes. No index. Photos do not match captions. Table of contents does not match pages. Order of battle errors. Looks like a bad draft that got through without anyone looking at it or checking out the author's background. The book wanders aimlessly without focusing on the intervention. Many experts in a RCW forum note this book is full of historical errors and pure fantasy in many parts. The author's extremely militant right wing comments do not help his mostly borrowed text. I am shocked that the publishing let this mess out of the office. It reflects badly on them.

    Stamping out the Virus: Allied Intervention in the Russian Civil War 1918-1920

    This book is filled with maps showing troop deployments and actions, numerous orders of battles that have never been published, rare photos. The book (400 pages) is divided into two parts: North Russia and South Russia from 1918-20. In North Russia, the US, British and French invaded at Archangel and advanced into a quagmire, much like Vietnam. In South Russia, only France and the UK intervened indirectly or incognito. Here, millions of dollars were sent in equipment and over 400 military advisors. They support the White army under Denikin, which advanced to within 200 miles of Moscow. Although forbidden, British were involved in many combat situations. What is amazing is the research and the extent the British were trying to stop Communism at its birth. It does not cover the army of Kholchak which was in Siberia. The only book with such detail ever published on this obscure topic: the intervention into another country's internal affairs. This book covers everything even the obscure tank battles with British tanks and the costs of doing war in South Russia! Kudos to the author.

    Good work, but it was not ready to come out of the oven

    Overall, it is good to see this information in English. The author has done good work in collecting bits and pieces of info to mold into a large compilation. The first part of the book (North Russia) seems to be the author's forte and is excellent. The second part (South Russia)is a like a ride on a bad roller-coaster. It jumps around and takes meaningless twists and turns. One clear example is the mismatched table of contents with the pages the chapters actually start on. The use of military terms are used inconsistantly. Russian translations are sometimes done well and then incorrectly for the same term. An order of battle for the Siberian Army is given in the part on South Russia for no other reason than being available. The book goes off topic with Russian Civil War history than Allied Intervention. Some incorrect information is given, but overall it is far better than the current void of information available in English. The book could have used more editing and expert help in the South Russia part.
