The Military Writings and Speeches of Leon Trotsky: How The Revolution Armed

Author: Translated and annotated by Brian Pearce

ISBN: 0-861151-005-4

Nothing provides us with a more inspiring insight into the personality of Trotsky, as well as the immense range of his theoretical outlook and the subtlety of his method, than a study of his role as a military leader and organiser.

It shows indisputably how Trotsky founded a great army, provided it with competent commanding staff and strategy and led it to victory.

Suppressed by Stalinism as the first essential step in re-writing the history of the Red Army, this work has never previously been translated into English.
