Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Potemkin has been the subject of many movies, but only one English-language history of the mutinous Russian battleship exists--The Potemkin Mutiny, by Richard Hough (1960), which did not access Russian naval archives, according to Bascomb. Thus opens a research-and-narration opportunity on which this author completely capitalizes. Presenting a restrained degree of context to the 1905 Revolution, plus brief biographical sketches of the sailors and officers involved in the mutiny, Bascomb swiftly activates the drama of the uprising. Intended by its instigators to ignite a takeover across Russia's Black Sea fleet, followed by socialist revolution, the mutiny actually erupted spontaneously. That forced a "what now" impetus on the incident's ensuing dynamic. Eventually, the Potemkin gave up in Romania, its surviving crew dispersing to write memoirs that Bascomb seamlessly synthesizes with the stories of the Potemkin's pursuers. Neither pro-red nor pro-white, Bascomb is pro-objectivity in this original rendering of the renowned revolt. Gilbert Taylor

Review

"As gripping as a novel by C. S. Forester or Patrick O'Brian...a remarkable book." (Los Angeles Times )

"Reveals all the complexity, excitement, and significance of those eleven fateful days...[Bascomb] tells the story of the mutiny with a masterful touch and perfect pacing." (Seattle Times )
