5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise and interesting, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenin: A Very Brief History (Kindle Edition)
Obviously it is brief as the author clearly states but I felt it gave me a good general idea of the role Lenin played in the start of teh Soviet Union.

It was clear and easy to read but didn't leave me feeling that the author had skipped over anything. Rather it gave me the desire to fill out my knowledge using other sources.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brief but brilliant, 30 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenin: A Very Brief History (Kindle Edition)
Written with authority, easy to understand and bursting at the seams with historical facts, 'Lenin: A Very Brief History' is an incredibly informative and rewarding read. In just thirty-four pages it recounts a tumultuous period in Russian history, where the autocratic Tsars finally ceded power to what was eventually to become the Communist Party.

Against this backdrop the author relates the rise of Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov - the Lenin synonymous with communism - and how his life and ideology were shaped by the upheaval in his mother country. Revolutions, war (both global and civil), class warfare, the emergence of the Bolsheviks and their utlimately brutal behaviour - all of these and more are covered in detail.

A fine addition to the 'Very Brief History' series.
