Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Children's Story of the War

The leader of this party was a man of Russian and gentle birth, named Lenin. It is said that he set himself to bring about the ruin of Russia in revenge for the execution of his brother, who had tried to murder the Tsar Alexander III. In 1887. He was assisted in this foul work by a man named Trotsky, who made bitter speeches against the Allies, and also by a gang of clever lawyers and dreamers who were lavishly supplied with German gold. They professed that they were anxious only for the happiness of the people, and to further this end they stirred up the peasants and workmen against the rich, and encouraged them to seize land and plunder the houses of the well - to-do. Before long the country was rent with civil strife, and was breaking up into separate republics.

Perhaps you wonder why sober, level-headed Russians did not unite to put down the Bolshevists. You must remember that most of the Russian peasants are terribly ignorant. Prob ably eight out of every ten cannot read or write, and as they have never known what freedom means, they have not learnt how to combine and work 'out their own salvation by lawful means. Then, too, we must not forget that they had suffered greatly during the war, and were eager for peace at any price. Further, the Bolshevists had gained control of the State money, and had raised a force of Red Guards composed of the old secret police, mutinous soldiers and sailors, rogues and vaga bonds, and criminals of all sorts. These men, who were paid high wages and were given many privileges, set up a reign of terror, and ruthlessly put down every attempt to hand over the government to sane, law-abiding men.
