Notes of a Red Guard
University of Illinois Press, 1993 - 285 pages
This compelling never-before-published
account takes the reader into Red Guard and Red Army units, Moscow factories,
workers' homes, and to the unfamiliar world of feudal Dagestan. Worker-revolutionary
Eduard Dune was seventeen when the Russian revolution began. He joined the Bolshevik
party and fought with the Moscow Red Guard during the October revolution. Notes
of a Red Guard is his candid account of what happened through 1921. This
uncensored account offers a rare glimpse of revolutionary Russia from the perspective
of an educated, skilled worker who became a rank-and-file participant.
