Russian Civil War (05 Edition)by Evan Mawdsley
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
It was an apocalyptic struggle, replete with famine and pestilence, but out of the struggle a new social order would rise: The Soviet Union. Mawdsley offers a lucid, superbly detailed account of the men and events that shaped twentieth century communist Russia. He draws upon a wide range of sources to recount the military course of the war, as well as the hardship the conflict brought to a country and its people--for the victory and the reconstruction of the state under the Soviet regime came at a painfully high economic and human price.
"The best book ever written on the Russian civil war. A first-rate work of scholarly synthesis."--Robert McNeal
