Shortly after withdrawing from World War I, Russia descended into a bitter civil war unprecedented for its savagery: epidemics, battles, mass executions, forced labor, and famine claimed millions of lives. From 1918 to 1921, through great cities and tiny villages, across untouched forests and vast frozen wasteland, the Bolshevik "Reds" fought the anti-Communist Whites and their Allies (fourteen foreign countries contributed weapons, money, and troops--including 20,000 American soldiers). This landmark history re-creates the epic conflict that transformed Russia from the Empire of the Tsars into the Empire of the Commissars, while never losing sight of the horrifying human cost.… (més)

Very entertaining and informative account of Russian Civil War. The author manages the necessary jumping from N to S and E to W across Asia as clearly as could be done in an account of this style. The epilogue detailing Stalin's rise was a particular treat. ( )

This is the third volume in W. Bruce Lincoln's (non-fictional) trilogy of lead-up to the Russian Revolution, the Revolution itself (and a little thing called World War I) and the Russian Civil War, when the Soviets ill-advisedly tried to promulgate their revolution by force of arms (see Itzhak [Isaac] Babel's Red Cavalry) to the West before they'd truly consolidated their victory. This book was an eye-opener for me: I'd no idea that the immediate aftermath of the October Revolution was so bloody and so very much in doubt, or that it was peopled by a host of such fascinating characters (most of which Lincoln regrettably -- if understandably -- mentions only in passing). Reading this book gave me both a greater understanding of the moiling ferment that spawned the Soviet Union; if Lincoln's earlier volumes cover the October Revolution's conception (In War's Dark Shadow: The Russians Before the Great War) and birth (Passage Through Armageddon: The Russians in War and Revolution), Red Victory can be said to cover its post-partum depression, if not its afterbirth. Lincoln is not the best historical stylist I've read, but he's far from being dusty or pedantic. ( )
