Ten Days that Shook the World

Read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ë John Reed

Ize it And the Provisional Government wasn t exactly any sympathetic to the poor lower classes it was in support of Russia s continued participation in World War I and would not grant them the land that much of Lenin and Trotsky s Bolshevik ideology argued that they were entitled to John Reed a Portland born American journalist covered most of the chaotic events of the October Revolution including the attack on the Winter Palace where the counter revolutionary Whites where defeated by the Bolsheviks After which Kerensky leader of the Whites fled to Pskov As journalism Reed s account of the events of the Revolution weren t exactly objective Of course Reed had nabashed Socialist sympathies He was opposed to the war and very much excited about what this struggle meant not just for Russia but for the world There are parts throughout the book in which he expresses the excitement about how the Russian Revolution would affect other countries and would eventually bring about an international workers revolution inspired by the ideology of Lenin s radical MarxismExactly what went wrong after all of this is another story left open for endless debate An extreme example of socialism in the vein of Lenin s Bolshevik ideology probably wasn t the most reasonable alternative to capitalism or absolute monarchy but at the time of the Tsar s very necessary abdication it could ve been construed as an almost transcendent change Unfortunately a party that ran on such extreme ideology was bound to enforce draconian laws as severe and nreasonable as that of the Tsarist Monarchy or the Provisional Government Introduce a boorish thinker such as Stalin into the mix some decades later and you have an ideological nightmareReed s book is an incredible phenomenon though Here was a man who was front and center for all of it One who had actually stood and listened to the speeches of Lenin and Trotsky He writes prose that as frantic as it occasionally sounds seems to leap off of the page There is an incredible attention to detail for what must have been an overwhelming experience to take in Ten Days that Shook the World will forever remain a classic due to its exuberance and charm it s a testament to its authors bold dedication to spreading the news of one of Western Europe s most pivotal events It s not everyday you get to witness a major turning point in history first hand as John Reed did in November 1917 For that reason combined with the facts that 1 he was American 2 he had a pencil and paper available and 3 he knew how to write this work is something close to a must read It s close to a must read rather than a definitive must read because Reed s prose lags He did manage however to give a sense for a tremendous instant of anarchy that lasted for the briefest of moments as the Kerensky regime morphed into chaos and then into Bolshevism Trotsky and Lenin make a number of appearances here as do a number of other revolutionaries most names long lost to ears and minds I did see Stalin s name once Reed had ite an ability to move around Petrograd witnessing developments and interviewing leading characters He visited Moscow once and
"On Another Visit Outside "
another visit outside Petrograd close to being lined p against a wall and shot although he was able to talk his way out of that ending I thought of the comparison between events in Russia in 1917 and Germany in 1918 I need to do reading on this topic though it seems the major difference is that revolutionary fervor penetrated the Russian military to a far different degree than the German military This caused Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht to experience opposing outcomes to Lenin and Trotsky The classic account of the October Bolshevik revolution that was supported mainly by the rban working classes and the large mass of sympathetic sailors and soldiers who were fed p with war and wanted peace Even though a politically one sided work John Reed wrote with enthusiasm and passion showing the events that took place mainly in Petrograd during the fateful days From BBC Radio 4 15 Minute DramaJohn Reed s classic eye witness account of the Russian Revolution in October 1917 Dramatised by Robin BrooksEpisode 1 The Coming Storm Autumn 1917 and Petrograd nder the Provisional Government is in chaos American journalists John Reed and Louise Bryant arrive to find the tension between factions is palpable and it s only a matter of time before the situation explodes But in which directionEpisode 2 On the EveThe confusion in Petrograd continues as the new delegates to the Congress of Soviets stream into the city Reed gets a brief interview with Trotsky and overhears Lenin calling for a Bolshevik insurrection But isn t Lenin meant to be in hiding to avoid arrestEpisode 3 The Winter PalaceReed and Bryant blag their way in to the Winter Palace and meet the frightened government troops defending the building As Bryant blag their way in to the Winter Palace and meet the frightened government troops defending the building As starts in the street the Palace falls surprisingly easily to the victorious revolutionaries but the journalists are caught in a dangerous encounterEpisode 4 Plunging AheadThe Bolsheviks have taken the Winter Palace and seized control Amidst a whirl of excitement dread and rumour Lenin abolishes all private ownership of landEpisode 5 Chill WindsEx Prime Minster Kerensky has joined forces with the Cossacks and is advancing on Petrograd and there is fighting in the streets in Moscow rumour is rife that the Revolution cannot surviveEpisode 6 The Revolutionary FrontKerensky and the counter revolutionary Cossacks are making gains and threatening Petrograd Reed visits the Revolutionary frontline with the Bolshevik commander in chief who seems less than organisedEpisode 7 Counter RevolutionBryant is caught Fallbuch Physiotherapie Lymphologie up in a vicious street battle and witnesses the bloody violence of the Revolution at closearters Counter Idly describes events in Petrograd in November 1917 when Vladimir Lenin and the Bolsheviks stormed the Winter Palace and seized the reins of powerDespite Reed’s personal leanings which he made no attempt to hide the book garnered praise from luminaries across the political spectrum George F Kennan the American diplomat and father of the policy of Soviet containment said that “Reed’s account of the events of that time rises above every other contemporary. ,
American journalist and socialist John Reed wrote about Russia s 1917 October Revolution presenting a first hand account of all the events whilst being on assignment for a socialist politics magazine called The Masses however due to this magazine s forced closure another magazine The Liberator published his articles Reed was able to interact with Bolshevik leaders and got much information from officials apart from his experiences and was therefore able to present his account both dramatically and accurately Read it here By mistake my review is located in comment sectionNeedless to say this book should be in everybody bookshelf regardless of one s social and political persuasionsIf you wish to read only one book in your lifetime this is the one The Russian s October Revolution for better or worse has drastically change the world s social and political scenes and its influence Overall this was one of the scariest books I ve ever read in light of our current political climate Of course most of the population was in very bad straits due to the harsh reprisals rampant corruption from the days of the Tsars the 1905 Revolution then the Revolution of 1917 which deposed Tsar Nicholas II plus the horrors of WWI This lead to the October Revolution of 1917 AKA the Ten Days that Shook the World It was a nightmare People were starving no one really knew who was in charge For most of the ten days the Bolsheviks didn t seem to have things in hand but Lenin Trotsky Stalin came out on top of course The sheer amount of lies bull shit propaganda that was shoveled by all sides was incredible The confusion was intense th John Reed s vivid eye witness account of his time in Petrograd was written in early 1918 and published in the USA the following year It was an instant best seller so much so that in Russia it was some years before Stalin who is only mentioned twice in the book felt he could ban it for its portrayal of Trotsky Possibly na ve definitely politically one sided nevertheless the veracity and impact of Reed s enthusiastic snapshot style reportage has become a classic memoir and inspired films including Eisenstein s classic October and Reds which won an Oscar for its director and star Warren BeattyEpisode 1 The Coming Storm Autumn 1917 and Petrograd I Rama Age Of Seers under the Provisional Government is in chaos American journalists John Reed and Louise Bryant arrive to find the tension between factions is palpable and it s only a matter of time before the situation explodes But in which directionOn the Eve The confusion in Petrograd continues as the new delegates to the Congress of Soviets stream into the city Reed gets a brief interview with Trotsky and overhears Lenin calling for a Bolshevik insurrection But isn t Lenin meant to be in hiding to avoid arrestEpisode 3 The Winter Palace Reed and Bryant blag their way in to the Winter Palace and meet the frightened government troops defending the building As gunfire starts in the street the Palace falls surprisingly easily to the victorious revolutionaries but the journalists are caught in a dangerous encounterEpisode 4 Plunging AheadThe Bolsheviks have taken the Winter Palace and seized control Amidst a whirl of excitement dread and rumour Lenin abolishes all private ownership of landEpisode 5 Chill WindsEx Prime Minster Kerensky has joined forces with the Cossacks and is advancing on Petrograd and there is fighting in the streets in Moscow rumour is rife that the Revolution cannot survive Episode 6 The Revolutionary Front Kerensky and the counter revolutionary Cossacks are making gains and threatening Petrograd Reed visits the Revolutionary frontline with the Bolshevik commander in chief who seems less than organisedEpisode 7 Counter Revolution Bryant is caughtp in a vicious street battle and witnesses the bloody violence of the revolution at close arters counter of the Revolution at close arters Counter government troops holding the telephone exchange are captured by Bolshevik sailors who then have to learn to man the switchboards Episode 8 VictoryTrotsky has claimed victory over the Cossacks and Kerensky is asking for an armistice Reed sets out once for the front line with a driver who takes a dim view of American democracy and finds himself p against the illiterate brutality of the Red GuardEpisode 9 MoscowLunacharsky despairs at the rumour that the revolutionaries own bombardment has destroyed the historic Kremlin Reed despairs at the rumour that the revolutionaries own bombardment has destroyed the historic Kremlin Reed Bryant set out to Moscow to see for themselves but find not everyone in the city supports the BolsheviksEpisode 10 The Conuest of Power The Bolsheviks have defeated the counter revolution and are getting on with the business of government despite the threat of civil war The abolition of all private ownership of land has won over the peasants and for a moment the Revolution seems to have accomplished its goalsJohn Reed Richard LaingLouise Bryant Kelly BurkeLenin Nicholas MurchieKerensky Ewan BaileyTrotsky Matthew GravelleKarelin Richard ElfynDoorwoman Lynn HunterZorin Sion Pritchard Due to the various political parties that John Reed speaks of HunterZorin Sion Pritchard Due to the various political parties that John Reed speaks of his impassioned account of the Russian Revolution it becomes somewhat difficult to follow the flow of events and their importance An nderstanding of the struggle at hand in this tumultuous period really only reuires the knowledge of two warring factions the Reds Bolsheviks and the Whites anti Bolsheviks Basically the absolute monarchy of Tsar Nicholas II had come to an end due to severe social and political Pulau Huntu unrest on the behalf of a starving angry country In its place a Provisional Government was formed This was intended to be temporary of coursentil a new one arose Long before all of this Vladimir Lenin had been writing of a working class revolution one spearheaded by the privileged Russian intellectuals basically radical Marxists who would organ. This book is a slice of intensified history history as I saw it” So begins John Reed’s first hand account of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 Much anticipated when it was published in 1919 Reed’s narrative remains as riveting today as when the events he describes were still reverberating throughout the worldReed was hardly a disinterested observer and his involvement in the Communist labor movement lends rgency and passion to his classic account He viv.
 Behind Every Hero  Apples
Evolutionary government troops holding the telephone exchange are captured by Bolshevik sailors who then have to learn to man the switchboards Episode 8 VictoryTrotsky has claimed victory over the

find not everyone in the city supports the BolsheviksEpisode 10 The Conuest of PowerThe Bolsheviks hav This is simultaneously a difficult read and a pageturner a firsthand account of the Bolshevik Revolution from an American observer dense with details but also providing a historically priceless perspective of one of the most important events of the 20th century Reed offer details of the factional fighting that took place during the revolution this is a lot of the book and the mistakes and Pokol unintended conseuences that helped generate the final result This was of less value in my opinion than the portraits of individual revolutionaries and the perspective on the massive social changes being wroughtpon Russia by the prising Most evocatively Reed describes how the prising bred an insatiable desire for knowledge and written material among the average Russian This impact of the revolution has been noted by other scholars as well but its amazing to see firsthand how a feeling of ownership over their society dawned Zachtjes Neerkomen upon the ordinary Russian and how this in turn fed a desire to read and know as much as possible To the degree that people feel empowered with agency over their lives the desire to read write think and debate over public issues naturally increases The simplicity of the Bolshevik cadres also comes across touchingly at times mostly guileless peasants who had been plugged into a social project that appealed to them after spending generations as mere subjects Some of the scenes such as the funeral procession at the Kremlin for the martyrs of theprising with their rough hewn caskets painted red paraphrasing and the great red banners over the Kremlin wall were incredibly evocativeOne thing to take from this book is how informed the average Bolshevik cadre was about who they were and what their political project was They all had a simple story that they shared and believed in a complex story that was rendered simple so that it could be grasped and sed by the average man The Bolsheviks improbably rose to dominance in the face of widespread opposition from other social classes including on the Left While things did not turn out the way that they hoped noteworthy is that Stalin himself is almost totally absent in this account their initial moment of revolution was still a brief episode of incredible human drama and possibility I just finished this one after meaning to check it out since college Sometimes you know a book is great even if you yourself have a hard time reading it That was the case for me in the very well written and detailed personal account of the October Revolution in Russia as experienced by American reporter and Communist sympathizer Jack ReedThe excellent movie Reds is based in large part on the accounts in this book Warren Beauty producing directing writing and starring as the author Reed I love that film and assumed I would love the book I certainly admire the book and can see why a movie was made of it Reed s descriptions of moods sights sounds and smells his overall description of environment is immpeccable The reader feels as if they are right there with Reed as he surveys the war front walks dark streets and experiences the nspecified yet palpable nrest that was so pervasive in all parts of Russia during that historical time I loved these parts of the bookBut the book is just as much if not Reed s account of the literally scores of factions political parties armies navies congresses and commititees Man alive were there committees in revolutionary Russia Hundreds Everywhere Even in the Army There was even a Commitee of Commitees and a Union of Unions So horribly complex were the struggles of these inummerable politicalgovernmental groups that one could very easily get lost trying to remember who was who and who was against what etc There is A Brief Description At brief description at front of the book for each of the parties but flipping back and forth grew tedious so I gave p A reference card as one reads is reuired for most people not well versed already in Russian history of the early 20th century While I am sure Reed breaks it down better than most the chunks are still hard for a novice to swallow sometimesHe is also a victim of his meticulous collecting whole pages sometimes being dedicated to verbatim accounts of speeches and articles and pamphlets set out all over Russia Makes one s head spinYet dedicated to verbatim accounts of speeches and articles and pamphlets set out all over Russia Makes one s head spinYet then I admired the passion with which he wrote those part of the accounts Not exactly as moving or intriguing as the mood pieces spread throughout the pages Reed certainly leaves no stone nturned Unfortunatley one has to be a geologist to keep some of them straightI will in all liklihood read the book again one day when of it has time to process For though Reed himself confessed that he failed to be 100% objective his first hand account of one of the most important social shifts in world history is invaluable to historians And his prose most important social shifts in world history is invaluable to historians And his prose even some poetry is a very rich feast for any wordsmith such as myselfA book to be admired and remembered even when confusing Not for everyone and sometimes not for me But when it did hit with me I was ite glad to have finally after about eight years picked it p and read it. Record for its literary power its penetration its command of detail It will be remembered when all others are forgottenReed was committed to telling the story of the Russian revolution as truthfully as possible That the book was banned by Russian premier Josef Stalin is a testament to the author’s success in carrying out his mission One hundred years after Russia and the world trembled Ten Days that Shook the World brings alive the momentous events of 1917. .
