With humor and an eye for irony, Michael Challinger tells the story of how this group of Aussies was seconded to help protect the British from a rear guard attack from northern Russia. Stationed in the small town of Arkhangel, the soldiers became embroiled in what was to become the Russian revolution, as they battled not only the Bolsheviks but also extreme cold, hostility from locals, and a kilometer front line. Two of these Australians soldiers went on to win Victoria Crosses and are perhaps our most neglected war heroes.

Anzacs in Arkhangel brings Russian history into focus and reveals how easily the First World War could have been lost.

Gladiators of World War II - The Anzacs [E13/13]

My dad and I are 1st and 2nd World War enthusiasts when it comes to Australia's involvement. When I asked him about whether he'd ever heard of Arkhangel or either of the two VC recipients who fought there he thinks of himself as a bit of an officianado on VC recipients , he said he'd never heard of them. When I clarified that Arkhangel was a place in Russia near Murmansk he suddenly remembered that one of his grandfathers had been considering going to Russia at the end of the war, but in the end decided against it or was refused. But for fate intervening I wonder whether it's the names Moore or Frost could have been on the very short list of Australian soldiers who volunteered for this mission only volunteered, just over actually made it to Arkhangel.

That really is a true coincidence that just happened this evening, not a story I made up to involve my family in the real life history of this book. Was it purchased or salvaged?
