really liked it
Read from October 12 to November 19, 2012

As a novice to modern Russian history, I felt Patenaude produced a work that was not only entertaining, but explained itself well enough to stand on it's own. His use of the more distant past intermingled with Trotsky's final few years acted as a storytelling device that gave incredible continuity and insight into some of the behaviors and actions of the former war commissar.

I have no qualms about recommending this to anyone interested in the Old Man.
