From the author who brought readers Hell's Anvil: The Forging of a Fanatic Fighter comes another compelling work. Readers can see history unfold through their eyes as Edward Rasmussen brings the riveting past of Siberia, Japan & WWI to life in his book.
Starting with the 13th century period of Mongol domination, the story of Siberia continues through the period of Russian expansion, leading to relations with Japan that were only temporarily interrupted by the Russo-Japanese War. But everything changed with the Bolshevik Revolution, the Allied Intervention of 1918, and the successive incidents after that which eventually ended with the final withdrawal of Japanese troops in 1925.
Enlivened with stories of individual men and women swept up in those events, this book draws many of these tales from Japanese and Russian accounts not previously available in English. Readers can experience history in the making as they witness the rise and fall of Siberia, Japan & WWI.
