Présentation de l'éditeur :

During World War I, a specialized Russian battalion comprised of ethnic Czechs and Czech and Slovak prisoners of war--the Legion--became a pawn in an international game of power and deceit. The Legion's detour through Siberia became the greatest human interest story of the war, chronicled weekly in the New York Times and New York Herald. Over half of the Legion's troops lost their lives as the evacuation of Czech and Slovak POWs through Vladivostok precipitated the murder of the Russian Royal family and forced the Legion to act as protectors of the Russian Treasury and the Trans-Siberian Railway while the White and Red armies battled. For political purposes, tales of the Legion's odyssey have been buried or expunged. This revealing volume offers the first account of this hidden yet epic journey, shedding light on a fascinating but forgotten facet of World War I.

Description du livre McFarland Publishing. État : BRAND NEW. BRAND NEW Full-Sized Laminated Softcover - 262pp - 52 photos, notes, bibliography, index - During World War I and the Russian Revolution, a specialized battalion of ethnic Czech and Slovak former prisoners of war--the Legion--became a pawn in an international game of power and deceit. Fighting with hopes of founding a nation, the Legion’s heartbreaking detour through Siberia became one of the greatest human interest stories of the war and was chronicled weekly in the New York Times and New York Herald. During their harrowing journey through Siberia, legionnaires grudgingly became protectors of the Russian Treasury and of the Trans-Siberian Railroad while accidentally precipitating the murder of the Russian Royal family. Stripped of their weapons and betrayed by their former allies, over half of the legionnaires lost their lives. For political purposes, tales of the Legion’s odyssey have been buried or expunged. This revealing volume offers a thorough account of a once hidden yet epic journey, shedding light on a fascinating but forgotten facet of the first world war. A Brand New Quality Book from a Full-Time Bookshop in business since 1992!. N° de réf. du libraire 2260095
