Summary

Helen Rappaport's masterful telling of the outbreak of the Russian Revolution through eyewitness accounts left by foreign nationals who saw the drama unfold. Between the first revolution in February 1917 and Lenin's Bolshevik coup in October, Petrograd was in turmoil - felt nowhere more keenly than on the fashionable Nevsky Prospekt, where the foreign visitors and diplomats who filled hotels, clubs, bars and embassies were acutely aware of the chaos breaking out.
Among this disparate group were journalists, businessmen, volunteer nurses and expatriate socialites. Many kept diaries and wrote letters home. Helen Rappaport draws upon this rich trove of material to carry us right up to the action - to see, feel and hear the revolution as it happened.

Interesting stories - well told

Eye witness accounts by foreigners caught up in the events 100 years ago in, what was then known as, Petrograd.
Mark Meadows can pronounce foreign names reliably and has a good range of accents which bring the stories to life without distracting the listener by being over the top.
