Ukrainian Armies in the World Wars by Peter Abbott

Book Description

The Ukrainians are the largest of the 'submerged' peoples of Eastern Europe and historically represent the second largest group in the old USSR, after the Russians themselves. Ukrainians faced many different enemies in the late stages of World War I, in the civil wars following it, and in World War II when their support for the Germans was a major factor. This title examines the organisation, uniform and insignia of each Ukrainian force, demonstrating how and why they played such important roles during the World Wars. The text is supported by colour illustrations and rare photographs.
