This was great, if totally depressing. The story of the Kronstadt commune's defiance of the Bolshevik comissarocracy, its efforts to actually realize soviet (or, arguably, anarchist) communism, and its brutal suppression by Trotsky and Lenin is a tale whose importance is not limited solely to historical inquiry.
