By Mikhail Khvostov, Andrei Karachtchouk
The most tool with which the Bolsheviks imposed communism on Russia used to be the purple military. ordinarily the origins of this military have been one of the manufacturing unit employees who laid down their instruments and took up palms as a manner of expressing their grievances. Already shaped by the point of the revolutions of 1905 and February 1917, those militant employees organised themselves into parliamentary detachments referred to as the krasnogvardeytsi, or 'Red Guards'. during this first of 2 volumes [see Men-at-Arms 305: White Armies] targeting the Russian Civil battle (1917-1923), Mikhail Khvostov examines the purple Army's organization, weaponry, uniforms and insignia.
