'It flashed upon me suddenly: they were going to shoot me!'

This electrifying eyewitness account of the Russian Revolution, written by an American journalist in St Petersburg as the Bolsheviks seized power in 1917, is an unsurpassed record of history in the making.

John Reed (1887-1920) American journalist and poet-adventurer whose colorful life as a revolutionary writer ended in Russia but made him the hero of a generation of radical intellectuals. Reed became a close friend of V.I. Lenin and was an eyewitness to the 1917 October revolution. He recorded this historical event in his best-known book TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD (1920). Reed is buried with other Bolshevik heroes beside the Kremlin wall.

Review Text

  • By Mr. Dixon on 26 March 2017

    This is the classic record of the Russian 1917 October revolution, endorsed in its accuracy and journalistic brilliance by Lenin. I've read and re-read it and will read it again.
