NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

Admiral Alexander Kolchak25th February, 1920 : The Red Army in Siberia has advanced steadily along the line of the Trans-Siberian railway. Admiral Kolchak, who briefly became the “Supreme Ruler of Russia” and has since been deserted by allies and friends, was seized by the Bolsheviks in Irkutsk, and shot. His body was then pushed through a hole in the ice so it would disappear forever. An eyewitness said he died “like an Englishman”. The American force of several thousand men has begun to leave Vladivostok. Bolsheviks have entered the city, but seem happy to let the Allies move out in their own time. The Japanese appear to be staying on.
