Editorial Reviews

Review

"In measured and still haunting tones, Dune captures the idealism, the sense of moral fervor, and the actual political attractions of the Bolshevik movement for young male workers in 1917... Dune's moving memoir is no simple apology for the Bolsheviks, however. He emphasizes the creeping authoritarianism, the terror, the sense of a revolution that had lost its moral bearings during the first years of soviet power." -- Daniel T. Orlovsky, author of The Limits of Reform

Format: Paperback
Dune provides a reasonably objective account of the October Revolution and the Civil War without embellishment or historical name-dropping (Lenin and Trotsky are hardly mentioned). The editors have done history a service by making his writing available in this format.

I had to read it for my Russian Revolution class, it was painful. I could not stand how bad the translation was from Russian. In the book there are references to small towns and villages with no real map to identify anything. The only reason I knew where those places where, was on the account of my Military Historian of a father. It has these intros to each chapter that I found useful, but once you get into a chapter, you will find yourself begging for him to end. Lots of rambling!
