Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The American Expeditionary Force Siberia (AEF Siberia) was a United States Army force that was involved in the Russian Civil War in Vladivostok, Russian Empire, during the tail end of World War I after the October Revolution, from 1918 to 1920. President Woodrow Wilson's objectives for sending troops to Siberia were as much diplomatic as they were military.
