Both a fine example of how to write history and how to make it.

I said of 'My Life' that if you only read one book by Trostky then that is the one to read. If you read one other then this is it. But my guess is any one who reads my life with an open mind will be gagging to move onto this masterpiece of historical writing.

First source author. Trotsky was pivotal in the success of the revolution and the beginning of the USSR.
