A great description of a little-known chapter of the times of the Bolshevik revolution. The research is excellent and gave life to the events and characters that not only shaped but also were shaped by them. The pictures of the people, politics and events in London and Russia are matched by vivid descriptions of the challenges of running networks in a hostile and difficult place.

I admit to a special curiosity, having visited the island of Kronstadt in 1992 as so much of the Former Soviet Union changed. Even then, Kronstadt was a "special" place with a proud and special history. This book and the excellent narration are worthy of the actual events.
