Its The Russian Civil Wars Uk Hi

I’m Jesse Alexander and Welcome to the great War where we’re still filming here in our pandemic lockdown studio in my living room now. By the summer of 1920, the main conflict in the Russian Civil wars between the revolutionary Red Bolsheviks and the counter Revolutionary Whites was coming to an end even. Bolsheviks and whites were fighting to the bitter end. In 1920 another aspect of the Russian Civil wars began to flare up even more because 100 years ago the peasants in Russia’s countryside began to rise against the Bolsheviks. So in this episode were going to cover the events of the Russian Civil Wars.

During The Course Of 1920 Lets

start with the whites who were trying and failing to reverse the revolution and reestablish some form of the old order in Russia. By early 1920, the white movement had been for all intents and purposes defeated in the far north. The Allied intervention forces had left and the last whites evacuated from our hangars in February in the East and Siberia. Supreme leader Admiral Kolchak had been beaten on the battlefield and then executed in early February. In 1920 and once Bolshevik forces had penetrated east of Lake Baikal.

They Paused And Shifted Their Troops To The

south to face the whites and to the west to face the poles in southern Russia. The Red Army was facing the white General Anton Denikin‘s armed forces of South Russia, which has been forced across the Dawn River in January. Denis can now desperately tried to rally the white cause, including an attempt to repair relations with the Cossacks. Now there were several different groups of Cossacks who’d briefly had independent states in 1918, but these were largely opposed by De Nika now offered concessions, but it was too little too late. The Cossack army of the Cubana was in the process of disintegrating and morale was extremely low to make matters worse for De Nikken.

The British, Who Had Supplied Him With Most

of his heavy weaponry, were essentially withdrawing their support. There was even trouble amongst the white generals. themselves in what became known as the Generals Revolution one of the Nickens main critics with general Peel Tov Rangel, who wrote the Nican a scathing letter after he’d been dismissed from his command and critiqued everything his commander had done. Daniken responded in kind you were doing everything you can to undermine the government and bring on disintegration. There was a time when suffering from a grave illness.

You Said That This Was Gods Punishment For

your inordinate ambitiousness May he forgive you now for the harm you have done to the Russian cause. The weakening White army was also struck by typhus and other diseases and could barely care for its sick and wounded. As one British observer recalled, probably no Army has ever been so handicapped from a medical point of view. The Red Army facing the whites was also suffering badly from typhus, but was generally. In a better position than their opponents, the red troops were under the command of 26-year.

combat troops under his command, As opposed to just 37,000 whites. The Red Army had also begun to experiment with a new type of formation massed cavalry. In late 1919 the Red Army had created the first cavalry army under the famous commander Simulazioni. This allowed them to mass cavalry at critical points in numbers that the whites simply could not match war. Commissar Leon Trotsky summed up this new approach with the slogan Proletarians to horse, but in actual fact most of the red cavalry consisted of Cossacks and peasants.

Not Workers.

The Red Army attacked across the dawn River in January, but at first it was beaten back with heavy losses. A white counter-attack was short-lived and the Red Army broke through on Denikin’s. and advanced along the rail line towards Yekaterina Dot. The white troops and civilian refugees pulled back and disarray towards the sea and the only remaining white port of Navarra Sisk.

One White Officer Recalled The Chaos.

The exodus of the Russian people reminded me of biblical times. Nomura seas became the scene of great suffering as tens of thousands waited for Allied ships to take them away to the relative safety of the Crimea or to Constantinople one witness recalled the scene it was freezing ly cold bodies lay in all sorts of corners, while the hospitals were besieged by sick frozen and hungry people, for whom nothing could be done so that those stricken with typhus remained just where they happened to fall. The criminals of the underworld came out and in the confusion preyed on the elderly and defenseless young girls. Some of high birth prostituted themselves.

passage for themselves and their families. It was a sick desperate terrified City. This disastrous defeat in South Russia spelled the end of Daniken’s leadership of the white cause and he recalled his bitter rival Randall, who took control in April 19-20. Rangel was under no illusions about the desperation of the white cars and therefore tried to show more political flexibility. Under the motto with the devil but for Russia and against the Bolsheviks.

He Put Out Feelers Towards The Poles

the Georgians, the Ukrainians and even hermanos anarchist peasants, but by this time white political capital had been spent and there was no interest from other parties. In a lying with the whites in Crimea Vengo created a new government of South Russia in order to as he put it in act leftist policies with rightist hands, but this existed only. Paper and in practice, he still functioned as a military dictator. The Wrangell still had about 35,000 soldiers, and the Red Army had shifted most of its forces west to fight the Poles. So in June he planned a breakout from the Crimea to coincide with a new law on land reform to gain peasant support.

White Forces Moved North Into The

Teredo province pushed back the weak Red 13th Army and made it as far north as of Orissa and as far east as Mariupol. There was even an expeditionary force of 4500 men under general rule. A guy sent across the Sea of Azov to the Kuben to link up with white partisans, but both of these offensives would eventually fail. The expedition to the Cubana lasted just three weeks and in Ukraine the peasants yet again refused to rally to the white cause and the British were. also continuing their policy of withdrawing their support for the whites because they wanted to normalize their relations with Bolshevik Russia, and they made this plain to general Van Gogh.

be unable to concern themselves any further with the fate of your army. The French did give an angle some symbolic support, but this had little practical effect and in October the Poles and Bolsheviks signed an armistice which meant that the Red Army could shift its forces from the west to face but angle in Ukraine. The whites were now isolated and weak, but even so Franco was able to resist. The first Bolshevik attacks, but the Red Army was organized and it was now under the command of general Mica influenza, but even so Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin felt that the preparations were going too slowly and criticized his commander-in-chief General. turns out that all the calculations of the main commander-in-chief are not worth a damn and are changed weekly like those of an Ignoramus Boo Tony’s First Cavalry Army was one of the formations moved to Ukraine from the Polish front in the West, but it was slowed by low morale fatigue because of defeats that had suffered at the hands of the poles and the time that it took committing pogroms against the local Jewish population.

On Route.

By October the Red Army had five armies, totaling one hundred and thirty-three thousand men, including some of MAc nose anarchist units as against thirty-seven thousand remaining whites. The Bolshevik plan was to cut off the white armies north of the Pedicle Isthmus, which would make an easier defensive position for Wrangles Army, but I’m gonna do this but nonetheless wanted to hold the line as long as possible. to bring in the grain harvest since hunger was still an ever-present danger. The red attack began on October 28th, and the whites were outnumbered and pushed back 20,000 were captured, but the rest did manage to escape to the Isthmus and set up a new defensive line.

General Franza Was Surprised At The

defense. I am amazed that the enormous energy of the enemy’s resistance. There is no doubt that he fought more fiercely and stubbornly than any other army could have. On the third anniversary of the October Revolution on November 7th, the Red Army outflanked the white positions by crossing a small shallow sea from the offered peace terms, including the right of emigration for white commanders, but Rangel refused. White forces pulled back towards the coast and the final evacuation began by November 16th.

146 Thousand White Soldiers And Civilian Evacuees

had been taken to Allied. Constantinople Hungarian Bolshevik Bella Kn who you might remember as the leader of the failed Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919 was now put in charge of the Crimean Revolutionary Committee, which, according to White claims carried out tens of thousands of executions. Although the exact number is impossible to establish from now on old Russia would exist only in exile and scattered bits and pieces for now in the Far East now at the same time as the Whites were being thrown out of Russia by the Bolsheviks. A new faction in the Russian Civil Wars was beginning to become more prominent. This was the Greens, and this is one of the reasons why historians sometimes talk about Russian civil wars in the plural because the war between the Bolsheviks and the Greens was quite a different affair.

There Was No Nationally Coordinated Green Movement

instead in different provinces at. Different times peasants rose up against the Bolsheviks, who they resented for their policy in the countryside. Despite the Bolshevik rhetoric about the Russia of workers and peasants, the peasants actually preferred the social Revolutionary Party because its land policy was in line with peasant aspirations. In 1917 and 1918, which was to keep the land that they had seized from the landowners.

The Peasants Wanted To Use Their Traditional Village

councils to administer the land that had been redistributed and in 1919 and 1920, even though the Bolsheviks had suppressed the social Revolutionary Party. They allowed the peasants to keep their land and so the peasants basically tolerated the Bolsheviks more than they did the whites, who represented the hated old order of land owning aristocrats, but as time went by and the Civil War raged peasant bitterness and resentment against Bolsheviks grew exponentially. Now the main reason for this was the Bolshevik economic policy, which we often refer to as war communists.
