Remembered Today:

Firsthand accounts from Americans in Siberia?

Are there any firsthand accounts available from Americans who served in the Siberian Intervention during the Russian Civil War? I'd really like to get a better picture of what service there was like for those guys.

Care to point me towards a few? If I had found them scanning the net I wouldn't have come here to ask :)

There is a lot of material about the North Russia expedition who suffered similarly, that may go someway to meeting your wants.

 

 

In this case I'm not looking for info on the North Russia intervention, it is the Siberian force in particular I want to hear about. But thanks anyway.

Not a first hand account, but may be of interest

"Bolsheviks, Polar Bears, and Military Law: The Experiences of Army Lawyers in North Russia and Siberia in World War I " by Fred L. Borch III

The Notes at the end of the article mention the book by Graves mentioned by Uncle George above ‘America’s Siberian Adventure’, also The Siberian Intervention by John A White 1950

 

 A few pages of Bibliography commencing page 306  https://books.google.com.au/books?id=g4SbP95FkT0C&pg=PA306 (some pages I can't see)

from  The Russian Revolution and Civil War 1917-1921: An Annotated Bibliography by Jonathan Smele. Sample pages only, Google Books.
