This book describes the fate of the soldiers of the anti-Bolshevik White Army, who fled Russia at the end of the Russian civil war. Remarkably, the Army continued to exist in exile, refining its ideology, and participating in the underground struggle against the Soviets. Paul Robinson sheds new light on the dynamic individuals involved in the White Movement, as well as on interwar Russian emigration in general.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"He paints a fascinating portrait Robinson accomplishes his... task crisply and engagingly." — The Historian
Based on extensive research of the archives of <'e>migr<'e> military organizations, this volume provides a notable addition to the story of the White Russian soldiers who fled Russia following the Civil War. Robinson (politics, U. of Hull, UK) details the final events of the Civil War and the move to exile of the soldiers. The bulk of the book focuses on the activities of political groups formed by the exiles, with attention to the specifics of their political philosophy, thus providing a corrective to the biased views by earlier, Communist scholars.
