Dances in Deep Shadows: The Clandestine War in Russia, 1917-1920 by Michael Occleshaw

In 1917, the world was turned upside down by a popular uprising and then a Bolshevik coup ditat in Russia. Suddenly, the socialist revolution that many had hoped for and had expected was underway, Capitalism was morally and materially exhausted by war, and history seemed to be on the side of communism at last. But as Michael Occleshaw brilliantly shows in this startling new appraisal of the revolution and civil war in Russia, the Bolsheviks were shrewd and flexible operators. They used an alliance with the Kaisers Germany to protect their infant regime and to destroy domestic challengers to their government. The British, the French, and the Americans, meanwhile, actively sought ways to cooperate with the new government regardless of their deep ideological differences. Occleshaw has discovered a wealth of new information that deepens and enriches our understanding of this crucial period in world history. In revolutionary Russia, he reveals a teeming underground of espionage, double-dealing, and adventurism. From the secret negotiations between the Bolsheviks and the capitalist powers to Britains plans for a separate Cossack state, Occleshaw reveals a history darker, more dangerous, and more exciting than anyone could have imagined.
