Fresh from Odessa, an Englishman whom the correspondent met at the British foreign office, has given to The Associated Press the first complete account that has readied London ol one of the most remarkable developments of th** struggle in Russia against Bolshevism. It is tile story of the Volunteer Army. organized by General Alexic!! and now commanded by General Deni-k im*, which in a year has grown I rom a handful of homeless men. devoid of equipment and supplies, nto a military force which has re-< onquered a large portion of Southern and Southeastern Russia, suppressed the disruptive elements in th** region occupied and set up a working civil government.
"No one over here," said the traveller. "seems to realize that in the South of Russia there is a small force of men which, under the banner of the Volunteer Army and in the cause of United Free Russia, has made, against overwhelming numbers of the ‘Red Terror,’ a most gallant stand."
"Tile Volunteer Ai my,” he continued. “has been recruited from several classes and from every part of Rossie Fighting against great odds, it has paid a big price. Twice it has met defeat in camp* gns on lh** river Kuban, and its losses included its leaders, Alexic'f. Korni-loff and Markoff, and *H»,000 volunteers and Cossacks.
"The army," he said, "had whole I tat i a1 ions formed of officers. The first Korniloff regiment, now reduced to less than 500 fighters, has had passing through its ranks more than 5,000 men. The 'Regiment of Death’ has lost 6.000 over a similar period.
"To me. an observer, it ha* been a miracle how th** Volunteer Army ever got any recruits. There was no coercion. Th** recruits came voluntarily. knowing that their lot was most likely to be a wooden cross or the life of a cripple,
"Today th** Volunteer Army has cleared the 'Great Belt' of Russia by Its own et torts and the help of its neighbors, the Don Cossacks* and holds the territory stretching from the Black Sea to the Caspian."
