Dreadful and discredited,
This review is from: The Russian Revolution 1899 - 1919. (Paperback)
The only thing you really need to know about this very long book is that it spends a few paragraphs on the deaths in the First World War, and then forty pages on "The murder of the tsarist royal family". Lenin is shown as a cartoon character who dreamt of tyranny-for-the-fun-of-it since he was a child.
There are many excellent histories of the Russian Revolution. Historians who themselves are quite conservative have written some good ones. But this one is dishonest propaganda which should never have been published.

This charlatan poses and pouts as an eminent historian don'tcha know? He was also Reagan's 'advisor' on matters of Soviet and Eastern concern, so that's his cover blown in the robes of neo-conservatism. I can't believe how many people read this junk and take it as gospel. Shocker...
