Summary:
"The soldiers called themselves "The Polar Bears." When WWI ended on November 11, 1918 these men expected to be immediately called home, like all other regiments around the world. That call, for these men, never came. They were left to fight a savage enemy (the first Communists) in Northern Russia eight long months after WWI had ended -- fighting in 60 degree below zero weather in waist-deep snows under the midnight sun. There has never been a regiment more tested. They became one of the most highly decorated regiments in all of WWI"--Container.
