About the Author

Damien Wright traces his lifelong interest in military history back to his early childhood when he was shown a photograph of his Grandfather in Australian Light Horse uniform and allowed to take his medals to school for show and tell. His interest in the British campaigns in Russia were first piqued in his teens when reading a chronological list of Australian recipients of the Victoria Cross which showed two seemingly anomalous decorations for 'North Russia 1919' listed separately from the First World War awards. Some further digging revealed both Australian VC recipients, one of whom was a fellow South Australian, had volunteered to serve in the same unit of the British Army. Further research proved difficult, so little had ever been published and the campaign seemingly largely unknown and ignored. The product of many years of exhaustive research, Churchill's Secret War with Lenin is his first book.

Reviews

This book should be required reading for politicians before committing troops to any further conflict...I really cant recommend this book highly enough if you are interested in military history in general, or Britain's smaller and forgotten conflicts. The author spent 15 years researching the book and this shines through into an incredibly detailed account of the actions in Russia during this period. Highly Recommended. * Britmodeller.com *
An extraordinarily detailed account of the actions by British and Commonwealth troops as part of the multi-national involvement in northern and southers Russia from 1918 to 1920. * Miniature Wargames *
This book is an invaluable resource to anyone interested in the conflict. * Army Rumour Service *
The result of fifteen years of research, this impressive book sets the record straight and puts this conflict in the public domin where it belongs. It is a scholarly and yet far from dry publication. It fills an important gap and is very highly commended. * Britain at War Magazine *
Superb account of the little-known involvement of Royal Marines as they engaged the new Bolsheviks (Soviets) immediately after the Russian Revolution. * Books Monthly *
