Details

In 1917, 50,000 Czech and Slovak army veterans found themselves stranded in Siberia as the Russian Empire disintegrated. Determined to reach the West, they seized control of the Trans-Siberian Railway… Drawing on first-hand accounts, this book tells the gripping story of a little-known episode of the First World War, in which a band of soldiers posed what Trotsky considered the greatest threat to Soviet rule, helped destroy the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and realized their dream of an independent Czecho-Slovakia.
