Description

In 1916, in an exchange of human flesh for war material, the Russian government sent to France two brigades to fight on the side of their French allies. Emerging from the conflict as a single force, the Russian Legion of Honor, which would remain loyal to France until the end of the war. The remarkable story of these Russian soldiers has been basically overlooked by historians - until now. Jamie Cockfield, in With Snow On Their Boots, explores the journey and transformation of these men and in so doing, examines the impact of the revolution on the Russians who were caught in the middle of wartime alliances and nationalist ardor. A microcosm of the political, social and military struggle that was to occur in Russia in 1917 and in the years to follow, With Snow On Their Boots also looks at the changes in the relationship between France and Russia during and after the war.
