For the first three months of 1918, Soviet Russia and Romania fought a revolutionary war, and yet the two countries were so recently allies in the struggle against the Central Powers. This article explores the question of British support for Romania from Russia as the Bolsheviks took power and efforts to bring this unnecessary – from an Allied perspective – war to an end. Part adventure story, it has a serious subtext.
