The London Times' correspondent in Russia provided the first western eyewitness account of the monumental events which resulted in the creation of the Soviet Union. Wilton provides a full historical background and the disastrous course of World War I for Russia, which sets the scene for the seizure of power by the Bolsheviks. He then details the full enormity of the Red Terror, and ends with the optimistic-and incorrect-hope that Bolshevism would be short-lived. Although Wilton's credentials were impeccable and his status unchallenged, this book was blacklisted because he dared to report openly on the overwhelming number of Jews amongst the Communist revolutionaries. He wrote: "Bolshevism is not Russian-it is essentially non-national; its leaders belong almost entirely to the race that lost its country and its nationhood long ago. In April 1918, the Bolshevist "Government," including 384 "Peoples' Commissaries," was represented by 2 negroes, 13 Russians, 15 Chinamen, 22 Armenians and Georgians, and more than 300 Jews. Of the last, 264 had come to Russia from the United States during the 'Revolution.' "I reported from Riga on the pernicious influence of Jewish Extremists. But this appeal to moderation was willfully distorted by the Jewish Press. Facts cited by me on the best authority were "proved" to be non-existent, and a campaign of slander and intimidation followed. Now, I was threatened with nothing less than murder." This is the first modern edition to be completely reset and which contains all the hand-restored original pictures and maps.
