The Red Reign: The True Story of an Adventurous Year in Russia


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.8 stars; 4 reviews)

Kellogg Durland spent a year in Russia as a journalist in 1906, during a seminal period in Russian history. This is a highly interesting read, knowing as we do what fell out for Russia in the next decade. The Russian Revolution did not appear from nowhere in 1917. Durland's account shows the rumblings that existed before the explosion. (Summary by Lynette Caulkins) (14 hr 24 min)
