    PDF Lenin on the Train A rattling good account of the contradictions of the Russian Revolution only marred by some well worn character assassination of the Bolshevik leader Merridale shows how against all odds Lenin managed to return to Russia by exploiting the imperialist rivalry of WW1 The Russian Revolution began as a revolt against the war but the l

    READ Lenin on the Train PDF Lenin on the Train REVIEW ✓ MAKANAT.CO Ó Catherine Merridale The story of Lenin on the train is only 20 pages of almost 300 There is unnecessary information included about the British inteligence in Russia The most important part how Lenin is persuaded by the German inteligence to get on their train is only 14 of a page I think the caption of this book misleads the reader

FREE READ Ù Lenin on the Train A vez mais caótica E se se arranjasse uma maneira de Vladimir Ilitch Lenine o mais célebre extremista revolucionário ue se encontrava então retido na Suíça neutra voltar a casa Este livro recria a extraordinária viagem de Lenine a partir. A statesman Bismarck if I am not mistaken once said that to accept a thing in principle means in the language of diplomacy to reject it in effectVladimir Ilyich LeninThis is one of those great idea on paper sorts of projects Part of which almost always involves misaligned expectations so as reader I ll take some responsibility there StillWhat the book proposes a secret history of the clandestine ride of Vladimir Lenin from Switzerland up to the Arctic Circle and into the Revolutionary Russia of 1917 At the famous Petrograd Finland Station As the world was crashing outside in the violent catastrophe of The Great War What the author implies an untold story as Lenin s super secret sealed train car threads the needle of wartime Germany a journey packed with spies variable allegiances and intrigue Vetted by the author herself a Russia Historian who travelled the same route investigated the places and even the trains themselvesWhat this reader expected even if not a journey of blockbuster revelations at least some of the drama and jeopardy of the situation A small but pivotal moment against the grand sweep of history Undercover agents a bit of backstabbing maybe And certainly a glimmer of the Period the elemental grit and unexpected elegance of coal fired rail travel in the Nordic countries of the late teens Maybe an insight into how tea was served onboard A gas lamp here or there That sort of thing What actually happens Little turns out to be known about the train journey and the reader gets the impression that it s not what happened there but mainly that it places Lenin in Petrograd in the spring of 1917 The great mass of the book like everything else I seem to have read about the 1917 revolution is entirely bogged down in endless tedious Org Chart sorts of discussions Which collective would report to which soviet and whose interests were served what committee resolved to overturn which hierarchy s decree and how that flipped the game Until the next day when there was inevitably a new resolution or a revised previous resolution or a reconsideration of a prior position Lenin On The Train also manages to glide over the Gulag the Pogroms the Relocations Collectivizations that follow Lenin s by any means necessary strategy Which is odd in that it eventually sums these in a generic indictment of the Soviet Union A late book stretch to Gorbachev and then Putin is also very disconnected feeling On Vladimir Lenin himself the author is incisively clear Lenin knew that real peasants wanted only justice and a piece of land To force his revolution through against such odds the leader had to steel himself to play the part of Robespierre If people could not see where their true freedom lay he would impose a revolutionary dictatorship until they were prepared to understand Meanwhile he had to put himself above the ordinary ruck becoming the ideal instrument of History with a big H a new man incorruptible and without sin Make no mistake author Merridale understands Lenin and his Revolution very well indeed It s her vehicle that wobbles One of the absolute best things about the book is right on the cover in the painting of Lenin at the Finland Station I won t ruin this little wrinkle as the author herself duly pulls it out of the hat at the end of the book But you ll have to get through all the committee meetings to arrive there comrade

FREE READ Ù Lenin on the Train Em 1917 a guerra na Europa parecia ser eterna Os dois contendores procuravam armas táticas e ideias novas para uebrar o impasse No governo alemão um peueno grupo de homens teve uma ideia brilhante porue não semear a confusão numa Rússia cad. In 1917 at the height of the First World War Germany turned to a new weapon in their fight against the Allied Powers They found a revolutionary called Lenin who was living in neutral Zurich stuck him on a sealed train and fired him in Churchill s words like a plague bacillus through Germany and into Russia What Lenin brought to Russia was class hatred German money and elaborate works on the application of Marxism in Russia as the chief of police in Petrograd put it though how much Lenin was actually financed by the Germans is debatable The point was that he as a revolutionary socialist was opposed to the war and would it was hoped pull Russia out of it altogether so Berlin considered that the interests of the German government are identical with those of the Russian revolutionaries The journey was a complicated one logistically and Catherine Merridale does her best to retrace the route but in the end the train journey itself is the least of what s being written about here It s an excuse to examine the state of the war and of the world in 1917 from the swarming network of spies and chancers to the competing intellectual arguments about people power versus government authorityIs the sealed train enough to hold the book together thematically Welljust aboutIt s a useful book for fleshing out the character of Lenin someone marked by his total intransigence with anyone who disagreed with him even slightly and also by a sort of infuriatingly fussy authoritarianism Even on the journey in uestion he was legislating his infamous in train rules about when people had to go to sleep and what hand drawn vouchers they needed to use the toilet It sounds like sheer pettiness but the difference between that and the regime he established in Russia a stifling cruel sterile one a workshop for decades of tyranny is only one of scaleGiven the aims of the Germans in putting Lenin on this train it is frustrating that Merridale never spells out the result of the journey namely that after Lenin s coup the Bolsheviks did indeed sign a peace treaty with Germany Unless I missed it this simple fact is not even stated in the bookIn any case the real punchline comes when she considers the fate of Lenin s companions on the train once Lenin had died and the journey had passed into myth The people with him had experienced it as reality not myth which from Stalin s point of view meant they knew too muchZinoviev was shot with Kamenev in 1936 His son Stefan who as a little boy in Switzerland had enchanted Lenin so much that the leader once attempted to adopt him was shot in 1937 Zinoviev s second wife and travelling companion of 1917 who was exiled to one of the most northern labour colonies was shot in 1938 In September 1937 and still protesting his innocence Shlyapnikov was shot for his supposed involvement in Zinoviev s so called conspiracy Radek and Sokolnikov were beaten to death in their respective labour camps within a few days of each other F rstenberg was shot as were his wife and son after a fifteen minute trialMy problems with the book had to do with its focus Merridale s prose by contrast and her powers of explanation are excellent So you need a fair working knowledge of the context but if you have that this book makes for a fascinating snapshot on a particularly freighted moment in European history It s also enjoyable to imagine someone picking it up as an imagined seuel to Girl on the Train
