    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Lenin on the Train PDF ´ Lenin on Kindle - lenin pdf, train pdf, Lenin on epub, Lenin on the Train ePUBWhen revolution erupted in Russia Vladimir Ilyich Lenin was in Switzerland condemned to exile by tsarist courts Like other Bolshevik leaders Lenin was immediately desperate to make it back home but in his case it was easier said than done This was 1917 when Russia was at war with Germany and he was stranded with no obvious way to make the journey However to his surprise there was unexpected co operation from German High Command who were actually eager to return the troublemaking firebrand back to Russia where they hoped rightly as it turned out that he would disrupt Russia’s war effort This then is the story of how Lenin and a group of other displaced Russians were taken across Germany in a sealed train first to Sweden and then on to RussiaIn a way I do wish there was about the actual train journey in this book as it is wonderfully bizarre Although later writers and artists were keen to portray Lenin’s trip as one of romance and idealism one artist c

    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Lenin on the Train PDF ´ Lenin on Kindle - lenin pdf, train pdf, Lenin on epub, Lenin on the Train ePUBI 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 actually finishes the narrative part in the summer of 1917 There is then a last chapter reviewing Lenin’s legacyWe all know of course how Lenin in exile in February 1917 got back to Russia with the aid of the German government and the author also examines other German assistance and funding for the Bolshev

    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Lenin on the Train PDF ´ Lenin on Kindle - lenin pdf, train pdf, Lenin on epub, Lenin on the Train ePUBA 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

    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Lenin on the Train PDF ´ Lenin on Kindle - lenin pdf, train pdf, Lenin on epub, Lenin on the Train ePUBThe author Catherine Merridale’s contribution is that she has assembled information about the lead up to the train ride the actual trip and how Lenin might have accessed German money once he arrived in Russia The title is deceptive fewer than 50 pages describe the trip What is given about trip is good You see the logistics such as fake IDs border crossings layovers and chang

    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Lenin on the Train PDF ´ Lenin on Kindle - lenin pdf, train pdf, Lenin on epub, Lenin on the Train ePUB What that dead man has come to symbolise is a system so rotten that it does not even ualify to be described as a fossil But like fossil hunters everywhere I dreamed of stepping back into the world where it had breathedAbove are the words of author Catherine Merridale from her introduction to this fine book and I am delighted to say that she has thoroughly succeeded in recreating the world of which she speaks so much so that the reader himself can step back into it too Lenin On The Train is not a work of fiction though Merr

    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Lenin on the Train PDF ´ Lenin on Kindle - lenin pdf, train pdf, Lenin on epub, Lenin on the Train ePUBThe 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

    Kindle arnepistol.co ✓ Lenin on the Train PDF ´ Lenin on Kindle - lenin pdf, train pdf, Lenin on epub, Lenin on the Train ePUBI am grateful that Catherine Merridale researched and wrote this book For all the ink historians have spilled on the Russian Revolution none have so accurately described the controversial circumstances of Lenin's return from exile Merridale's is for example the first study I've seen that even included a map of Lenin's journey The author provides an engaging account of Mssr Ulyanov's wartime exile in Switzerland and the unpleasant details of the sealed train's journey across Germany only one bathroom pinched German faces visible out the window seasickness on the ferry ride to Sweden She also explains why the German government decided to grant Lenin's reuest to return home the new foreign minister Arthur Zimmerman was a gambler the infamous Zimmerman Telegram was one of his less successful wagers and thought sending Bolshevik agi
