4.0 out of 5 stars RH Bruce Lockheart 3 Oct 2013
Bought this book in a charity shop, would recommend it to any body, a really good read even today. If you are interested in Russia and the British diplomatic service - before and immediately after the Revolution told by some one who was there read this book. Good insight into Lenin and Trotsky as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating tale of the Russian revolution 13 Feb 2013
By Raimo K
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like the title says - Bruce Lockhart was the British government representative in the midst of revolutionary Russia, including in the end running an agent network. Amazing that he lived to tell the story, execution was not far away.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bolshevik Revolution from the inside! 26 Nov 2006
By David H. Birley - Published on Amazon.com
This extraordinary book, which I obtained through the Folio Society, is compiled from the personal daily journals of a British diplomat and emissary who was in Russia from 1905 through 1918. He was personally acquainted with many of the principal participants in the Bolshevik Revolution, including Trotsky, whom he visitied almost daily in the early stages of that event, and even Lenin. His eye-witness accounts of many of the events surrounding the entire history of this cataclismic tranformation of Russia from a Tsarist Empire into a Soviet one is like no other. It is in the first person throughout, and is one of the most gripping narratives of its type I have ever read.

If you have any interest whatsoever in this period of history, you must read this book!
