USS Sacramento in the Northern Russia Expedition

Newsletter article image

This is a bit on the obscure side, but also posted are several examples of correspondence pertaining to the Northern Russia Expedition, which included three chasers.

These documents were posted in the context of some comments about the role of USS Sacramento (one of the other vessels in the expedition), on the Naval Warfare site.

I take issue with the notion that the U.S. / Allied presence in Northern Russia was "ill-conceived," (a fairly typical assertion in accounts of WWI strategy and politics) and propose a somewhat different than standard point of view on the withdrawal of troops in 1919.
