This poster depicts a series of photographs that commemorate the liberation of the Russian cities of Sevastopol and Tzaritsino and the Kursk region by the Volunteer Army from the Bolsheviks. The events took place in 1919 during the Russian Civil War that started immediately after the October Revolution. It ended in 1921 with the victory of the Bolsheviks. The counter-revolutionary forces were known as the Whites in order to underscore their opposition to the Bolsheviks - the Reds. Both enemies were equal in unprecendented brutality and left countless dead.
