About the book (from dust jacket):

Mr, Moorehead has vividly reconstructed the whole course of events and the roles played by the various characters in the gigantic drama. And what a cast he has to handle! Tsar Nicholas II and his Tsarina, Rasputin, a medieval blackguard in an almost medieval court, Trotsky, Kerensky, and Lenin who emerges as the story develops from an obscure and single-minded agitator into the figure who dominates the whole scene. He has also reconstructed the extraordinary atmosphere of Russia in those days – an atmosphere of total confusion, apathy, and tension which suddenly turned into terror. Finally, he shows the reader how a small but determined minority imposed their will on the vast, leaderless majority of Russians because they, and only they, knew what they wanted.
