Trotsky: The Eternal Revolutionary
by Dmitri Volkogonov
Free Press
560 pages

This book tells the life of a Russian Revolutionary, Leon Trotsky. It tells about how he tried to change Russia with his ideas and how he became a revolutionary. He reformed the government, and became a very popular Leader of the Bolsheviks. He also managed to mobilize the Communist army from 300,000 soldiers to just short of about a million. He brought great change to Russia and worked in an underground union where he worked on revolutionary pamphlets and fliers.

I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone unless they needed to write a report on Leon Trotsky, or if they were just a big fan of him. This wasn't an interesting read to me. It wasn't adventurous and it didn't have any action in it, which seemed boring to me. However it did supply with great knowledge of Leon Trotsky. However though, i really didn't care to much for this book.
