Novel "written by a German, based upon actual experiences of the author. Dwinger, as a prisoner of war in Russia, served with the White Army until its collapse, was taken prisoner by the Reds, and after fearful hardships, made his way back into Germany. His account of the death-grapple between the Whites and the Bolsheviks, of the advance upon Moscow, of the futile and heartbreaking Koltchak retreat, that long march across Siberia which cost two million lives, is written on the grand scale," according to the blurb.
