Overview

WW II's abrupt end brought us many gifts, none stranger than the papers of the German State. These were captured virtually complete, and to this day give up secrets. One that emerges from Alan Moorehead's research is the extent to which Germany was involved in the Russian Revolution. The ironic result of this clandestine maneuver was Germany's sure defeat on the Eastern front in WW II. "It all forms a fascinating chapter in the history of our century," states The Book-of-the-Month Club, "and the man ignorant of how that chapter unrolled is minus the keys to an understanding of his own time and so in part himself--Moorehead hands us that key."

I read it in like a week. Easy to follow and a lot of information.

Alan Moorehead's complete history of the Russian Revolution puts much in context. It is packed full of information and emotional scenes. Yet, since revolutions tend to be chaotic events by nature, it is hard to analyze them (though many have claimed to have succeeded to do so). The two decades that the book covers was an eventful one, and Moorehead goes through the phases in orderly, chronological order. Unfortunately, the cumbersome load of names of people, councils, and various crises makes the book a little hard to follow (not exactly a 'Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich'). However, Moorehead discloses much information cut out of most textbooks and narratives of the Russian Revolution such as the true founder of Communism. It is a great complement to any textbook on European history, but one must not try to overload one's memory banks. Enjoy!
