Russian Revolution: A History From Beginning to End (October Revolution, Russian Civil War, Nicholas II, Bolshevik, 1917. Lenin) by Henry Freeman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This concise examination of the roots of the Soviet Union to its demise is a sixty minute lesson in how not to organize society. From the brutality of czarist rule, through the cancer of Marx and Engels, Rasputin, Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin, Russian Revolution recounts the most egregiously misguided social experiment in modern times. The story of how the Soviet Union was born in the murder of Czar Nicholas II and his family is told here in simple, and intentionally brief terms. This is history in highlights. We are spared ponderous detail and given the facts in clear digestible bites. For the reader who cringes at history, Henry Freeman’s insight is a painless way to learn how the world came to look like it does today. Read it and consider your politics.
