A presentation copy. Inscribed by the author to: "J. Sewell, With my thanks for help with the illustrations. Charles Maynard, Sept 1928". An account of the expedition by the Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Forces in North Russia from May 1918 to September 1919. The work is particularly useful for its detailed coverage of military operations throughout the region, but it is extremely contentious with regard to its treatment of political affairs in Northern Russia (Smele). The story begins during the Great War, but the greater part of it deals with events after the war was over and Maynard was engaged in a private war on the North Russian Coast (Falls).
