A non fiction book by

 
 
The October Revolution happened in November 1917. Later Soviet propaganda 'proved' it was 'the will of the people', but few know that the brutal rebellion, which killed millions and raised Lenin's numerically tiny Bolshevik Party to power, was made possible by massive injections of German money laundered through a Swedish bank and a shady arms dealer who had made a fortune in the Balkan wars.

The so-called 'workers' and peasants' revolution' has a cast of millions, of which the three stars were neither workers nor peasants. Nor were they Russian. Lenin was a dissident Tatar named Ulyanov; Trotsky was a bourgeois Ukrainian Jew; Stalin was a seminary-educated Georgian undercover agent of the Okhrana secret police who never did speak Russian well. In this timely publication, Douglas Boyd shows how this still-flying banner of revolution changed the world.
