46. From October to Brest-Litovsk
Trotsky was a Russian Marxist revolutionary who was instrumental in the Russian Revolution and afterward. He was a Soviet politician and the first leader of the Red Army.
He wrote this book about the Russian Revolution. It was very interesting to hear the story from the point of view of the revolutionary.
It was not exciting. It was downright boring at times, but those periods were fleeting. Overall it was a decent read that added a little understanding to my history database hidden deep in my brain. :-)
