Overview

Based on three fascinating, romantic and exciting stories during the turbulent period of 1914-1920: how the first woman invited to serve with the Czar's Treasury hides the wealth of Russia from Lenin, how a language student from Stanford University leads a clandestine invasion of Siberia to thwart Bolshevism and how a graduate student from Charles University in Prague leads a regiment of elite athletes in mutiny against Germany to side with Russia. This factual story of love and escape is complex, and at times challenging to popular views, but every situation is accurately framed within well-researched historiography. The only fiction in this novel lies within two of the main characters, who are composites. All others are presented accurately.
