This book covers not only the three major events on the Eastern Front, the battle of Tannenburg and the March and October Revolutions, it also dispels some of the myths that have grown up around the Tsar's army: their often-cited inability to adapt to 'modern' warfare being one.
The nationalist formations and the Revolutionary units of the Provisional Goverment are also described, something difficult if not impossible to find in other publications. 140 photographs and six maps bring the Eastern Front into sharp focus.
