Ten Days That Shook the World
"Ten Days That Shook the World" is American journalist and socialist John Reed's first-hand account of the Russian October Revolution of 1917. While it is intended as an impartial and unbiased historical account, by Reed's own admission, "in the struggle [his] sympathies were not neutral". An important historical document of an event that would shape the political landscape for most of the 20th century, "Ten Days That Shook the World" is a must read for those interested in the socialistic movement and how it shaped Russian history.
