Very interesting. To the point. Very good research.

THE WORST BOOK

by Parvana on Aug 16, 2007

THE BOOK IS SO HARD TO READ. WITH SO MANY CONFUSING NAMES I CAN'T KEEP UP WITH THE STORY. IT IS A MUTINY OF A HELPLESS NATION 100 YEARS AGO WITH COURAGE THAT IS CLOSE TO LOOSING THEIR LIFE. THE STORY IS THAT DESPERATE. I DON'T THINK THE BOOK IS WORTH IT AT ALL.

An excellent modern narrative on a powerful event.

Neal Bascomb's book "Red Mutiny" serves as a well-timed reminder of the events that would be the undoing of the Russian monarchy. In "Red Mutiny," Bascomb has sifted through numerous sources of material that are often isolated by the Russian language. While many books have been written about the 1905 Battleship Potemkin mutiny on the Black Sea, -as well as a 1922 motion picture that remains a triumph in its own right- few were written or translated into English. Many of the mutineers themselves would see their stories published. Given the tendency of Lenin's Bolsheviks to hijack the Potemkin story for their own propaganda purposes, its not surprising how little exposure the west has had since that pivotal summer of 1905. "Red Mutiny" reveals the hardships Russians faced under the Tsar, especially the lower ranks within the Imperial Russian Navy, only to have the Bolsheviks subject the Russian people to its own tyranny upon the monarchy's demise a dozen years later. A remarkable and excellent book that gives brilliant insight into the Russian people's experience. Bascomb's brilliant work makes history interesting for the casual reader and compelling for the historian.
