Edward Klempka is finalizing his book “Foreign Military Activity in the Russian Civil War 1917-1923” which is to be a joint publication by the British Society of Russian Philately and David Feldman SA.
Over 500 illustrations in full colour. 380 pages of individual chapters, each covering a country and theatres of war in which its armies were engaged, illustrating the postal history of the intervention armies, from the Tsar’s abdication, which marked the start of the Russian Revolution, until the formation of the USSR.
This book is the second in a series to be produced by the publishers, and will be funded, as was Batum under Occupation, by the kind sponsorship of David Feldman SA. Publication is expected to be towards the end of 2018.
All members of the BSRP will receive a complimentary copy.

Book review by Trevor Pateman
“Despite the earlier handbooks, there is much that is new here drawn from the authors’ own substantial collections and those of other collectors (Taylor, Alshibaya).”
