In September 1918 the US sent a small contingent of about 5,000 troops to Archangel and about 8,000 to Vladivostok. This was part of an allied (British, French and US) involvement in the Russian revolution. The purpose was to secure allied supplies, to rescue the Czech Legion and to bring Russia back into World War I against Germany, by assisting in the defeat of the Bolsheviks.

While named after the President that wrote the 1823 message to Congress, the Monroe Doctrine was the brain child of Secretary of State, John Quincy Adams. Basically the …Doctrine warned that the United States was no longer to be considered an area open to European influence or colonization. The US promised not to interfere in the affairs of Europe and Europe would respect that the Western Hemisphere was closed to colonization by any power. Two developments convinced Adams that such a Doctrine was necessary. First, the expanded Russian exploration and fur trapping south of Alaska, which had been Russian since 1741. The Russians built Fort Ross close to Spanish San Francisco and the Czar in 1821 ordered foreign ships to stay 100 miles clear of Russian American shores. It appeared that Russia might want territory that the US wanted to colonize. The second, yet more important problem Adams saw, was the chance that Austria and France would send troops to the Western Hemisphere to help Spain regain her lost colonies in South America.
Poland invaded Russia in 16th century. the Poles seized Moscow/Kremlin for two years 1610-1612. Polish prince - Wladyslaw became a russian tsar and his face was put on rus…sian money. The two most famous, or if you prefer, infamous are Napoleon (1812) & Hitler(!941). Ooops! what a mistake. Also Ghengis Khan, coming from the other direction.(1200 or so) Charles XII of Sweden also invaded, fairly famously. His army met the same fate as Napoleon's and Hitler's.
Because Adolph Hitler was a Doi-doi-doi.
Napoleon invaded Russia in order to further complete his mastery of Europe. As he had virtually defeated all other nation states in Europe
He was upset about crimes local population committed against Germans living in East Europe and Russia. Hitler was furthe angered by the fact that east European government did …nothing about the crimes their citizens were committing against the Germans includingRussia, who committed such crimeswho should not be allowed to exist
He had this idea of 'lebensraum', place to live. He wanted to expand his, by then, already really big empire. So he 'gave up' his plans to conqur GB and went eastward in…stead. Offcourse we now know hoe that played out! --
Yes, I dont know specifics but they were going to invade from cuba and land in Texas and Louisiana. A great point to invade, Texas being the most well armed state.
General George S. Patton
It had a combined strength of about 450.000 troops.
there gonna do it in 2009 look into the bible proficies (i think)
you don't. Russia is not only the biggest country in the world, it is also home to the brutal Spetsnazs. So unless you wan't to be shot by a Ballistic Knife, blown up by a Sai…ga Shotgun, or be brutally killed by a AK74, I probably wouldn't recommend it. If you want to know more about the spetsnazs search Deadliest Warrior Bios. yeah he's right. napolean, and Hitler were wiped out in russia. they also have the best tanks (t-90).
The first French units forded the river Niemen on June 23, 1812 at 11.00 PM. They were followed the following days 24 and 25 by the bulk of the Army.
no, napoleon did not use railroads to incade Russian in 1812
No,Russia never invaded,but France has once invaded Russia...that's for sure! Actually, Russia did invade France, but not as the aggressor country, the way Napoleon did to R…ussia. In 1814, after Napoleon invaded Russia then retreated back to France, Tsar Alexander I and the Russian Army (along with the Prussian and Austro-Hungarian armies) followed the retreating Napoleon all the way back to France. The Russian army entered France and defeated Napoleon at last. On March 31, 1814, Tsar Alexander I rode into Paris.
Historically it is called the 'Allied Intervention'. After Russian signed a peace treaty (Brest-Litovsk, March 3,1918) with Germany, removing Russia from the war, the allies …knowing that Germany could now remove it's divisions from the Eastern Front in Russia to France, make a major attack on Paris and win the war. Faced with this event, the British and French governments decided upon an Allied military intervention in Russia. They had three objectives:Prevent the German or Bolshevik capture of Allied material stockpiles in Arkhangelsk.Mount an attack rescuing the Czechoslovak Legion stranded on the Trans-Siberian Railroad.Resurrect the Eastern Front by defeating the Bolshevik army with help from the Czechoslovak Legion and an expanded anti-Bolshevik force of local citizens --- and, in the process, stop the spread of communism and the Bolshevik cause in Russia.Note: The United States and Japan was to secure the Trans-Siberian railroad in Siberia. About 8,000 American soldiers were in the intervention at Vladivostok and about 5,000 at Archangel. The American soldiers stayed in Siberia until 1920, long after the treaty had been signed.
