Description

From 1908, Lebedev lived in exile and was one of the editors of the socialist revolutionary magazine За народ (For the Nation). During the war Lebedev fought on the French side in Greece and was a correspondent for France and Greece. In 1917, he returned to Russia and was appointed Minister of the Navy in the 1917 Provisional Government before fighting against the Red Army and escaping to the US through Vladivostok.

Our book was written and published in New York, upon Lebedev’s immigration through Vladivostok and summarizes his experiences fighting the Red Army in Volga and Siberia.

In the next years Vladimir Lebedev lived in Paris, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia and Prague. In Belgrade, where he partly lived between 1928 and 1939, he was publishing a Russian journal Руски архив (Russian Archives). In the 1930s Lebedev received a French citizenship. In Paris he authored several other publications on Russia and the Russian immigrants.

On the eve of WWII, Vladimir Lebedev moved to New York, where he died in 1956.
