Summary and Info
Nikolai Sukhanov stood at the center of the Russian Revolution as a founding member and ideologist of the Petrograd Soviet and as an editor of the leading opposition newspaper. His eyewitness memoir of the revolution includes Lenin, Trotsky, Martov, Chernov, Tsereteli, and other important figures. Found guilty at the show-trial of 1931 and victim of a trumped-up charge of spying for Germany, he was shot in 1940 and rehabilitated in 1992. This book chronicles his life against the backrop of the Russian Revolution.
