The story of the Great War in the East is, in the end, the story of how Tsarist Russia finally came to an end this excellent title chronicles the internal contradictions of the Romanov state in the final months before the abdication of Nicholas II. Dr. Buttar gives thorough examination to previously ignored campaigns such as the Austrian “Black-Yellow Offensive”, that largely failed, and the Russian “Brusilov Offensive,” that, initially at least, succeeded spectacularly. The “June Advance” of June to September 1916 was the Russian Empire’s greatest feat of arms during World War I, and among the most lethal offensives in world history.
