A NASTY LITTLE WAR The Western Intervention into the Russian Civil War

by | Read by Anna Reid

History • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

It's difficult not to recommend an audiobook this well researched and performed but just as difficult to recommend a history so unrelentingly horrific. Author Anna Reid is a gifted narrator and an equally fine storyteller--brisk, forceful, incisive. Her account of the civil war that followed the 1917 Russian Revolution portrays the international force that was sent to topple the Bolsheviks as a grim farce of ancient rivalries, stereotypes, and sheer incompetence. The rampant violence of the counterrevolution ushered in an era of suffering for the Russian people. Most appalling are the attacks from all sides on Russia's Jews, unbearable to listen to even a century later. Ironically, the civil war also brought from obscurity one of history's bloodiest monsters--Joseph Stalin. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2024]
