This compelling never-before-published
  account takes the reader into Red Guard and Red Army units, Moscow factories,
  workers' homes, and to the unfamiliar world of feudal Dagestan. Worker-revolutionary
  Eduard Dune was seventeen when the Russian revolution began. He joined the Bolshevik
  party and fought with the Moscow Red Guard during the October revolution. Notes
  of a Red Guard is his candid account of what happened through 1921. This
  uncensored account offers a rare glimpse of revolutionary Russia from the perspective
  of an educated, skilled worker who became a rank-and-file participant.

Industry Reviews

"In measured and still haunting tones, Dune captures the idealism, the sense of moral fervor, and the actual political attractions of the Bolshevik movement for young male workers in 1917... Dune's moving memoir is no simple apology for the Bolsheviks, however. He emphasizes the creeping authoritarianism, the terror, the sense of a revolution that had lost its moral bearings during the first years of soviet power." -- Daniel T. Orlovsky, author of The Limits of Reform
