Books/articles about the civil war in Russian Far East?

Post by koczownik » 07 Apr 2019 23:45

I would like to find some reading material which focuses on the Russian civil war in the Far East; basically the region east of Lake Baikal and north of Mongolia/China (I know the fighting overlapped into Mongolia with people like Sternberg and Semyonov, but in this case that is not part of my focus).
I would prefer books/articles which are in English, because I can not read Russian to academic level.

Kamil Giżycki books are the best I read. Full of first hand experiences.
But all in Polish and Giżycki was not a historian...
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Thanks for the recommendation. Books in Polish are ok for me, and firsthand accounts are always valuable.
