As the last guns sounded on the Western Front, 4,200 Canadiansoldiers, some of them conscripts, travelled from Victoria toVladivostok to open a new theatre of war in Siberia. Part of the Alliedintervention in Russia's civil war, the force sought to defeatBolshevism, but grim conditions, conflict among the Allies, and localopposition eventually forced Canada to evacuate the troops.This ground-breaking book brings to a life a forgotten chapter inthe history of Canada and Russia. Combining military and labour historywith the social history of British Columbia, Québec, and Russia,Benjamin Isitt examines how the Siberian Expedition exacerbatedtensions within Canadian society at a time when a radicalized workingclass, many French-Canadians, and even the soldiers themselves objectedto Canada's military adventure designed to alter the outcome ofthe Russian Revolution.Military historians have tended to write off the SiberianExpeditionary Force as a mere sideshow, an embarrassing episode in thelarger context of the First World War. By bringing the story of theexpedition to centre stage, Benjamin Isitt illuminates a forgottenchapter in the history of labour radicalism and the complex factorsthat have shaped foreign policy. The result is a highly readable andprovocative work that challenges public memory of the First WorldWar.
