"Oscar Hippe's book covers sixty years of struggle whose course was decided when he joined the Spartacus League after hearing Karl Liebknecht oppose the Social Democrats' patriotic support for the First World War.
Hippe participated in the German revolution of 1919 and the mass struggles in the years which followed. He sought to learn from these events and to understand the treacherous role of the Social Democracy and the increasingly Stalinised Communist Party of Germany.
This fight for the continuity of the revolution brought him to Trotsky and the Left Opposition."
