RED OCTOBER: The Revolution That Changed the World

DOUGLAS BOYD    Book Number: 86715    Product format: Hardback

"A spectre is haunting Europe, the spectre of Communism." Douglas Boyd's research into Russian history began at the secret Joint Services School for Linguists, where the instructors included former tsarist officers, nobility and other Russians, Balts and Eastern Europeans who had escaped to the West during the October Revolution and the Second World War. The October Revolution happened in November 1917. Later Soviet propaganda pretended for several decades that it was 'the will of the people', but in reality, the brutal rebellion which killed millions and raised the numerically tiny Bolshevik Party to power, was made possible by massive injections of German money laundered through a Swedish bank. The so-called 'workers' and 'Peasants' Revolution' had a cast of millions, of which the three stars were neither workers nor peasants. Nor were they Russian. Josev V Djugashvili - Stalin - was a Georgian who never did speak perfect Russian; Leiba Bronstein - Trotsky - was a Jewish Ukrainian; Vladimir I Ulyanov - Lenin - was a mixture of Tatar and other Asiatic bloodlines. Karl Marx had thought that the Communist revolution would begin in an industrialised country like Germany. Instead, German cash enabled Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin and Co to destroy ineffective tsarist rule and declare war on the whole world. This is how they did it, told largely in the words of the people who were there. With list of abbreviations and acronyms, 224pp, illus and maps.
