Daily Express Article

The Daily Express two-page feature on my book can be found at the link below.  Although the title of the article is Winston Churchill: Secret Shame in the Russian Revolution, there is clear evidence in the book that Churchill worked harder than anyone to secure the release of Captain Horrocks and the last prisoners of war in World War One.

When the Prime Minister, David Lloyd George, planned to meet Lenin’s envoys in May 1920 and reopen trade with Russia, the Secretary for War declared in a secret Cabinet Office memorandum that the return of “all British prisoners of war captured in Siberia…should be the sine qua non of further negotiations.”  See Chapter 14 and Appendix 4 for the details.
