Under attack by twenty-one of the richest countries in the world, the Russian Revolution also had to encounter the assaults of its enemies within the international labour movement.
This book is Trotsky's reply to Karl Kautsky. Written in the midst of the fighting, while he was directing the campaigns of the Red Army, it lays down uncompromisingly the historical justification of the actions of the Bolsheviks.
It remains a crucial part of the fight to bring the lessons of the October Revolution to the international working class.
