    2. A very book covering the military aspects of the American intervention in the Russian Civil War. The first half of the book covers the North Russia Expedition and the second half covers the Siberian Expedition. They author draws his information on many US sources and the book is well footnoted.

    3. The book is essentially divided into the two separate intervention campaigns in North Russia and Siberia, and this works fairly effectively. Willett mixes in a surprising amount of anecdotes with descriptions of American and Allied operations.
