Synopsis: Drawing heavily on previously unknown sources, Robert Shenk offers a revealing portrait of America's small Black Sea Fleet in the years following World War I. Home-ported in Constantinople, navy ships sped to the Crimea to help evacuate some 150,000 White Russians, and then coordinated the grain shipments that ended a terrible Russian famine. The fleet's successes in evacuating nearly 200,000 ethnic Armenian and Greek refugees from Smyrna and in rescuing tens of thousands from mainland Turkey are also detailed in full. Shenk's incisive depiction of Admiral Mark Bristol as both head of U.S. naval forces and America s chief diplomat in the region William Leahy, Thomas Kinkaid, Julian Wheeler, and diplomat Allen Dulles served under him help to make this book the first-ever comprehensive account of a vital, but little-known naval undertaking.

About the Author: Robert Shenk, a widely published professor of English at the University of New Orleans, is a retired captain in the U.S. Naval Reserve. He lives in Mandeville, LA.

Book Description Naval Institute Press, United States, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English. Brand new Book. Drawing on previously untapped sources, Robert Shenk offers a revealing portrait of America's small Black Sea fleet in the years following World War I. In a high-tempo series of operations throughout the Black and Aegean Seas and the eastern Mediterranean, this small force of destroyers and other naval vessels responded ably to several major international crises. Home-ported in Constantinople, U.S. Navy ships helped evacuate some 150,000 White Russians during the last days of the Russian Revolution; coordinated the visits of the Hoover grain ships to ports in southern Russia where millions were suffering a horrendous famine; reported on the terrible death marches endured by the Greeks of the Pontus region of Turkey; and conducted the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of Greek and Armenian refugees from burning Smyrna, the cataclysmic conclusion of the Turkish Nationalist Revolution. After Smyrna, the destroyers escorted Greek steamers in their rescue of ethnic Christian civilians being expelled from all the ports of Anatolian Turkey.Shenk's incisive depiction of Adm. Mark Bristol as both head of U.S. naval forces and America's chief diplomat in the region helps to make this book the first-ever comprehensive account of a vital but little-known naval undertaking.
