   Russia, 1917. As World War I rages, political turmoil slowly paralyzes the Russian Empire. The king abdicated. His successors are ineffective and incompetent. The country is gripped by violence. One by one, institutions collapse under the weight of chaos and terror. The Bolsheviks start a revolution that shakes the country. Russia was plunged into a bloody civil war, in which over 10 million Russians died and millions more emigrated.
  At the end of the war, the "White" forces were headed by Baron Pyotr Wrangel. He was a cavalry officer who fought in the Russo-Japanese War and World War I. In the early stages of the revolution, he found himself at the center of various intrigues. After escaping death at the hands of a Bolshevik firing squad, Wrangel joined General Denikin's volunteer army. Although he achieved victories leading his cavalry against the communist enemy, he failed to convince Denikin to abandon the ill-planned advance on Moscow. After it failed, the Volunteer Army disbanded.
   Widely recognized for his tactical skills and unblemished morale, Wrangel assumed command of the last remnants of anti-communist forces. Under his leadership, the White Army launched a crushing counterattack that recaptured Crimea from the Reds. There he defended himself heroically, but after he was abandoned by his allies and no longer had the resources to hold the position, Wrangel personally led the evacuation of the army and thousands of civilian refugees from the peninsula.
    In 1928, shortly before his death, Baron Wrangel managed to publish in exile his memoirs, which cover the period from the last stage of Russian participation in the First World War, the eve of the February Revolution, followed by the Bolshevik October Coup, until 1920. when the Civil War ended. "Always with Honour" is the book that collects these memories.
