This is an excellent book about the end of World War I on the Eastern front.  Not only does the book include detailed accounts of Kerensky's last-gasp offensive, the implosion of the Russian military and state, and the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, but also detailed coverage of the "pygmy wars" in Finland, the Baltics, and Poland that erupted as WWI drew to a close.  As usual, the author includes numerous fascinating quotes from participants of various nationalities.  Truly a unique book covering this period.
