There can be no region in Europe whose history has been more tortured than Ukraine. During the 20th century, Austria, Poland, Russia, Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Romania vied for power over parts of this vast and fragmented area, and its divided peoples rose time and again in vain attempts to win their independence. For the first time in the West, this book gives a succinct summary of all of the different armed forces raised among the Ukrainians, and of their uniforms and insignia. These are illustrated in colour and with a selection of extremely rare photographs dating from the Great War to the aftermath of World War II, when Ukrainian guerrillas continued to defy the Soviet authorities until the mid-1950s.
