Robert Service | The Russian Revolution 1914-1924

Acclaimed historian of twentieth and twenty-first century Russia, Robert Service returns with an enthralling history of the Russian Revolution. His vivid, revisionist account spans from the outbreak of WWI to Lenin’s death in 1924. Drawing on little-known diaries of ‘ordinary’ people (peasants and account clerks), Service traces Russia’s tortuous path through war, revolution and civil war.
