    In many ways reading this book is sort of like the opposite experience of reading about the experience of the American or Spanish or Finnish Civil Wars for example In those latter two examples the good guys won and there may have been a bit of messiness about the result and the experience of the winners but all the same however frustrating the narrative starts out everything turns out alright in the end The Russian Civil War lik
