When you have a question or just to plunder the archives:
non-political discussion group dedicated to the
Russian Civil War and related conflicts. A treasure trove of material
hides already in the previous posts.
: A non-political
discussion group with sections on the Freikorps and the
"Interwar" period. The Russian Civil War is also often discussed in the
Soviet Union at War 1917-1945.
: topographical maps of the
Ukraine and the Russian Caucus,
most of the areas that the V.A. and A.F.S.R. campaigned in
(unfortunately not Orel) plus the southern theatre of the 1920
Polish-Soviet War, Makhno's campaigns and the French Intervention.
Applicable to WWII as well, of course. (Update:
appears that the south Russian and Ukrainian maps are no longer on-line
to the general public at
the moment. Just as well I downloaded them all - send me
a mail if you want a particular map.)
: have cheap modern
topographic maps of Poland.
Seta map shop
I have used for paper copies of ex-Soviet maps of the Baltic coast
though they do
much more. Send them an e-mail in English. Very cheap and quick.
Military Mapping Survey of Austria-Hungary
maps of most of central Europe, extending well into Russia and Ukraine.
: helps one find those hard to locate little villages,
it has the historical names as well as the modern ones (just be careful
to remember that countries have changed borders a lot since 1920).
