Ok, my mistake! It was actually 5000 Whites and 5000 of their horses that Makhno dispatched from a distance. Still an amazing feat!

Comrade ERISS, I know there is 'no honor among thieves', but surely there must be a place for 'honor among Reds'. But then again, maybe that is one reason why it all came crashing down to ruin in the end, one reason among many. In any event, in my 'kinder-gentler' communist/socialist revolution, we ...
