Scope and Content Note
The papers of Colonel Sergei Sergeevich Tolstov detail his military career during the First World War and Russian Civil War.
They include orders, battlefield notes and descriptions of battles on the Austrian front of World War I, and in Siberia and
the Far East (Vladivostok) during the period 1917-1919. The correspondence is also largely of a military nature.
