Archangel

Archangel, or Arkhangelsk, lies on both banks of the Northern Dvina river near its exit into the White Sea in the far north of European Russia.

At the end of the 19th century a railroad was built linking the city to Moscow and the city became an important port for the export of timber. During the revolution it resisted Bolshevik rule and became a stronghold of the anti-Bolshevik White Army.

During the North Russia campaign Archangel was used as a staging post for the Allied armies.
