Wrangel, Pyotr Nikolaevich (1878 - 1928)

Once tsarist general, replaced Denikin as Commander-in-Chief of the White Army in 1920. He succeeded in controlling the Crimea for more than a year, and only in the autumn of 1920 did the heroic offensive of the Red Army drive him out, compelling him to flee with the remnants of his army to Turkey and the Balkans.
