Bruce Lockhart was Acting Consul-General in Moscow when the first Revolution broke out in 1917. Sent home because of an affair with a married woman, he returned to Russia the following year as Head of the British Mission to the Bolsheviks. His graphic first-hand description of the Moscow of 1918, his frequent encounters with Lenin, Trotsky and the other architects of the Revolution, his experiences as a prisoner in the famous Loubianka prison: all combine as a fascinating picture of one man present at history in the making.
