Publisher's Summary

"We are provincials no longer," said Woodrow Wilson on March 5, 1917, at his second inaugural. He spoke on the eve of America's entrance into World War I, as Russia teetered between autocracy and democracy. Just 10 days after Wilson's declaration, Tsar Nicholas II abdicated the throne, ending a three-centuries-long dynasty and ushering in the false dawn of a democratic Russia. Wilson asked Congress to declare war against Germany a few short weeks later, asserting the United States' new role as a global power and its commitment to spreading American ideals abroad. Will Englund draws on a wealth of contemporary diaries, memoirs, and newspaper accounts to furnish texture and personal detail to the story of that month.

March 1917 celebrates the dreams of warriors, pacifists, revolutionaries, and reactionaries, even as it demonstrates how their successes and failures constitute the origin story of the complex world we inhabit a century later.

    Story
    "USA history as Russian Revolution develop."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    USA history related to Russian Revolution. What was Wilson and Roosvelt way with Russian Revolution leaders? which decisions and actions took these USA presidents when Russian Revolution and World War I develop? USA diplomatic actions and resistance to involve in WWI.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More centered in Russia's politicians and Russian history.


    Have you listened to any of Julian Elfer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I hope to listen more of his voice: it's just clear, agreeable, and deliciously British!


    Was March 1917 worth the listening time?

    Not for me as I'm looking to know more of Russian history: more on Kerensky, more on Trotsky, more on Rodzianko, more on Sergei Witte, more on las imperial family. USA role in Russian Revolution as little interest to me.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent performance of Julian Elfer as reader.
