Russian Civil War

Russian Civil War

After the First World War ended on the Western Front on November 11th, 1918, and on other fronts at around that same time, Europe did not just suddenly go back to the relative peace of 1914. The war, and the strains that it placed upon the societies around Europe would result in fighting and conflict for over 5 more years. Over the next 30 episodes we will be discussing some of those conflicts. We begin with the Russian Civil War.
