Description
This is the classic account of the Russian Revolution by a Western journalist which has been admired worldwide since its first publication in 1919. It was dramatized by Robert E. Lee in 1973, and later turned into the highly successful film Reds by Warren Beatty. After outlining the background and causes of the Revolution, John Reed describes in vivid detail what took place in "one of the great events of human history". He take, us from the lead-up to the uprising, to the fall of the provisional government, the move between revolution and counter-revolution, and the final conquest of power. Reed describes first-hand meetings with Lenin and other major figures, troop movements and the daily happenings of the ordinary workers. This extraordinary document of history in the making is brought to life by the contemporary photographs used for the first time in this edition.
