Thanks, that was really interesting.

 

Is there any good English language books on this conflict? All ive read have been on the Polish/Soviet War.

Haven't read any of the English language books, just a quick search turned out these, so can't comment on quality.

That one on the Royal Navy will be particularly interesting I think. Ill keep an eye on the Osprey one as well, they are usually a pretty good overview.

 

I was looking the other day at a wargame that covers this era.

Prit Buttar wrote a chapter about it in his final book on the Eastern Front-- The Splintered Empires: The Eastern Front 1917–21. It's currently $2 in the Kindle Store on Amazon in the US.

Get the other books in the series--they're worth it. They feel quite authoritative in terms of explaining the Eastern Front of World War 1 in a pretty digestible manner.
