True, but the White side was just badly split. They just could not unite to defeat the Reds. Which was one of there many problems.

So it is possible that, had the Whites been able to unite into a cohesive fighting force, they could have defeated the Reds.  How different history would have been had that happened.

The Whites also had the problem that they were fighting on three widely separated fronts, with no direct communications between them.

Yeah, it was a lack of cooperation, a lack of cohesiveness, that ultimately doomed them.

This is from the book "Remembering a Forgotten War" Serge Petroff a god book on the Russian Civil war in Siberia
25 July 1918 a Czech and White Russian force captured Ekaterinburg. it was commanded by Colonel S.N. Voitsekovsky. Who was one of the White army in Siberia's best field commanders. He was one of the youngest Russian army staff college graduates. He has been described as decisive and having nerves of steel. In 1917 he was the chief of Staff of the 2nd Czech Division. He was later promoted to general and commanded a division, corps and army of the White forces in Siberia. On 25 jan 1920 when General Kappel died he became the commander of what was left of most the White Armies in Siberia and led them to Chita. There he had a falling out with warlord grigory Semenov and resigned. He went to the new state of Czechoslovakia and joined the Czech army. He became a general and commanded the Brno military district and retired in 1939 which is when Germany took over the rest of Czechoslovakia. He was arrested by the NKVD in 1945 and died in the Gulag at Vorkuta in 1954 age 71.

Poor guy should have gotten out of Czechoslovakia while he still could.
