Overview

THIS book is a slice of intensified history—history as I saw it. It does not pretend to be anything but a detailed account of the November Revolution, when the Bolsheviki, at the head of the workers and soldiers, seized the state power of Russia and placed it in the hands of the Soviets.
Naturally most of it deals with “Red Petrograd,” the capital and heart of the insurrection. But the reader must realize that what took place in Petrograd was almost exactly duplicated, with greater or lesser intensity, at different intervals of time, all over Russia.

This book is about a biased American journalist who, himself is a communist. He writes this as if the commies did the right thing, and is a biased report. However, it has many verbatim reports from leaders and bystanders. Overall, it is a good read, but boring at times.

Don't bother. A good book, but find another copy.
