About the Author

Godfrey J. Anderson was a Word War I veteran who served as a Polar Bear in the battle with the Bolsheviks. Gordon Olson is Grand Rapids City Historian Emeritus and the author or editor of many local history books, including The Gift of All and Thin Ice.


"In this first-rate first-person account of a Michigan farm boy's adventure during World War I, expertly enriched and set in historical context by Gordon Olson, Godfrey Anderson gives a soldier's-eye view of battling the elements and the Bolsheviks in the Russian Arctic. He clearly and honestly tells about the Americans' first clash with the Red Army, an expedition that became a prelude to the Cold War."
-- Frank N. Schubert
Historian (ret.), Office of the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff

"Godfrey Anderson, a Michigan farm boy who became a "Polar Bear," wrote a richly detailed and highly readable account of his World War I experiences in Russia. Thanks to Gordon Olson for making available a well-illustrated and thoughtfully edited version of this valuable primary source."
-- Perry D. Jamieson
Senior Historian (ret.), U.S. Air Force
