The Russian Civil War, 1917–1921

  • David R. Stone


The Russian Civil War was a vicious and epic struggle between the Reds—Bolsheviks and their sympathizers—and all those who attempted to stop them from cementing their control over Russia. These included separatists from the non-Russian territories around the fringes of the old Russian empire, peasant anarchists who wanted little but to be left alone, and (most prominently) the Whites. The Whites were the last remnants of Russia’s old regime, especially military officers, government officials, and the leaders of pre-revolutionary Russia’s political parties.
