Russia Washed in Blood
by Vesyoly Artyom Windle Kevin Govor Elena
Anthem Press
This book is the first English translation of a vivid fictionalised account of the Russian Civil War of 1918–1921 by a gifted writer, Artyom Vesyoly, who made it his mission to record the full horror of the events of that period. For his failure to recognise the ‘leading organisational role’ of the Communist Party, he was executed in Stalin’s Great Purge.
