    2. I think by the time I d gotten to this, I d lost some interest, so it wasn t as fun as I d hoped It s definitely thorough The over arching theme is that Western diplomats, in particular the British, were involved in anti Bolshevik measures than they had admitted to soon after the fact.

    3. Britain s clandestine war and the various people involved The attempts which sometimes were conflicting and optimistic in the extreme Enjoyable read,

    4. A difficult book to read, but provides important information about the Allies , most particularly Britain s, involvement in Russia s politics during WWI and the Revolution Extremely enlightening.
