    summary Lenin on the Train ✓ E-book or Kindle E-pub Lenin on the TrainI dithered a bit about whether to rate this as 3 or 4 stars In the end I went for 4 as it is a decent enough read It covers a narrower time period than I expected though The book focuses very much on the run up to the February Revolution and then on Lenin’s return to Russia In fairness this is what the title actually suggests but for some reason I had expected the author to finish with the October Revolution when she a

    summary Lenin on the Train ✓ E-book or Kindle E-pub Lenin on the TrainA rattling good account of the contradictions of the Russian Revolution only marred by some well worn character assassination of the Bolshevik leader Merridale shows how against all odds Lenin managed to return to Russia by exploiting the imperialist rivalry of WW1 The Russian Revolution began as a revolt against the war but the leaders who were thrust into power by the collapse of Tsarism wanted to continue the war Lenin's genius was to grip this contradiction with the death grip of the bulldog For Lenin the fate of the Russian Revolution would be decided by the revolt of workers throughout the rest of Europe by turning the imperialist war into a civil war on a global scale Sadly the fate of the German Revolution 1919 23 is barely mentionned I recommend The Lost Revolution by Chris Harman for a detailed account of the interconnectedness of the two great revolutions Also neglected is

    summary Lenin on the Train ✓ E-book or Kindle E-pub Lenin on the TrainThe story of Lenin on the train is only 20 pages of almost 300 There is unnecessary information included about the British inteligence in Russia The most important part how Lenin is persuaded by the German inteligence to get on their train is only 14 of a page I think the caption of this book misleads the readers appropriate would be British Inteligence and Lenin in the years of the World War I
