The Ice March

The Ice March

______________________________

This was the retreat of General Lavr Kornilov‘s anti-Bolshevik Volunteer Army from Rostov over the ice to the Kuban in early 1918. Many civilians accompanied the troops because of the Red terror. This was one of the most epic episodes of the Civil War, and all those who participated in the Ice March received the “Crown of Thorns” Medal. The Ice March had the same impact for the White Movement as the Long March had for Chinese communists.

The poster above was used for recruiting to the Volunteer Army. “My son… go and save the Motherland!”
