September Advance

In September 1919, the future British generals, Brian Horrocks and Eric Hayes were attached to General Diterikhs’ White Army in Siberia when it recovered nearly 100 miles of territory east of the Ural mountains.¬† This widely-reported success gave the people of Omsk a false sense of security.¬† They did not realise that the Red Army was consolidating its forces before an autumn advance.

I am looking forward to giving a talk at the wonderful Haslemere Bookshop at the beginning of October, but before then I will be supporting The Soldiers’ Charity by signing books at the Early Early Christmas Fair evening reception at Tedworth Park, Tidworth¬† SP97AH on Tuesday 24th September at 6 pm.
