I endorse Diego's recommendation of Serge's Memoirs which is a tremendous
book. What impressed me was this: Serge, together with every single
Bolshevik faction, was in favour of the suppression of Kronstadt, but what
upset him was that to justify itself the Government told lies about
Kronstadt. It was not the action but the lies that was the first sign of
degeneration of the revolution.
