Description

'Lenin? Yes, he was a good man -- he ran the whole country -- and he did it on a worker's wages.' The view of a Red Army veteran is in contrast to that of a young Russian entrepreneur: 'Lenin and Trotsky were totally evil -- they turned my country into a nightmare.' The Revolution of 1917 remains controversial though much is known about its key political players. Roy Bainton tells the compelling, human side, via the poignant stories told to him by ordinary families, their hopes transformed into fear.
