This compelling never-before-published account takes the reader into Red Guard and Red Army units, Moscow factories, workers' homes, and to the unfamiliar world of feudal Dagestan. Worker-revolutionary Eduard Dune was seventeen when the Russian revolution began. He joined the Bolshevik party and fought with the Moscow Red Guard during the October revolution. Notes of a Red Guard is his candid account of what happened through 1921. This uncensored account offers a rare glimpse of revolutionary Russia from the perspective of an educated, skilled worker who became a rank-and-file participant.
