Letters to the Editor


To the Editors:

Your article on Lake Baikal [Sep/Oct 2004] mentions that “White Guards mounted the last major campaign of the Russian Civil War” there.

...If [you are] talking about General Kappel’s (or Semonov’s) attempt to rescue Admiral Kolchak, that was in January 1920, while General Wrangel evacuated the Crimea almost a year later. If [you mean] the uprising in Yakutsk, that was hardly a “major campaign,” nor was it near Lake Baikal.
