The "Army of the North" was one of the breakaway groups, more or less derived from Estonian forces, that fought against the Bolsheviks. General Rodzianko was appointed Commander-in-Chief of the forces in February 1919. Subsequently this group was merged into the larger Army of the Northwest.
In May it captured Pskov, Gdov and Yamburg.
There are five stamps issued by this force. Scott lists them in a special section, Stanley Gibbons include them in their section on North West Russia, and Michel list them in their section on the Northwest Army.
